iPhone 6 Plays Catchup To Android – Summed Up In 1 Image

iPhone 6 Plays Catchup To Android – Summed Up In 1 Image

There’s a hilarious graphic listing the iPhone 6’s specs that’s doing the rounds of social media right now. It’s titled: “Dear iPhone 6 users: Welcome to 2012.” It matches up all of the iPhone 6’s specs with those of the Nexus 4, which was released in November 2012. Seems like Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s certainly playing catchup—to two years ago, that is. Wonder why analysts are so excited.

Origin of the iPhone 6 graphic

We can thank Ron Amadeo of Ars Technica for the hilarity. He posted his graphic on Twitter:

As you can see, the iPhone 6 and the Nexus 4 both sport a 4.7-inch screen, but unfortunately the Nexus 4 actually edges out the iPhone 6’s screen resolution, with 760p compared to the iPhone’s 750p. Both offer payments services via near field communication, plus notifications, widgets, third-party keyboards, typing suggestions, cross app communication, and cloud photo backup.

Amadeo’s tweet has since been retweeted more than 17,000 times.

What’s not on the iPhone 6 graphic

It should be noted that the iPhone 6 does have a fingerprint scanner, which wasn’t on smartphones in 2012. The Touch ID enables users to scan their fingerprint to authenticate transactions, thus making the payment service provided on the iPhone 6 more secure. It also has a 64-bit chip, which of course Apple became the first company to include in a smartphone last year with the iPhone 5S.

Here’s hoping the phone’s overall performance makes it better than the Nexus 4, although some fans will probably buy the iPhone 6 only because it has the Apple brand on it.

So what do Apple fans have to look forward to next year? Amadeo suggests perhaps wireless charging? That’s not only Android phones but also Windows Phones already. And what about water resistance? Several high-end Android phones can check that box too. And don’t forget about split-screen apps.

  1. Yes, very hurt indeed, i am absolutely depressed… hahahahahaha. Now go play with your undeveloped penis or pop a zit, and tell your mom to get the hell off my bed.

  2. o did truth and fact hurt ur little feeling. aweee dont cry we all know gullible and unobservant people will buy ur useless gadgets go ahead and get it line u unintelligent being incapable of ration decision making the future is bright for u

  3. ridiculous. apple invented the modern concept of a smart phone. Android let’s say has democratized it and created more diversity in hardware form factor. I’ve had both android and iPhone and i use pc’s and macs.

  4. God, can you nerds and geeks just STFU?? People buy the iPhone because it is a nicely designed phone that’s easy to use, it’s that simple, get it? Go gloat about the superior tech specs of your Androids to your mommies and 30 year old virgin playmates and leave us normal people alone, seriously…

  5. It’s long been known that iPhone users actually don’t even realize what one can do on an Android because they’ve never used one — they just go into the store and ask for an iPhone. Show me an Apple user who had any idea that 5.5 inch display phones were mainstream in August 2012 (Galaxy Note II)… You can’t. They’re a very insular crowd and prefer yesteryear’s technology at tomorrow’s prices.

  6. You gotta commend Apple for selling their brand to oblivion and amassing a huge following of sheep. They’ve created the illusion that Apple is sort of a luxury brand. Bravo

  7. This article is incorrect because Android in fact was the first one to have fingerprint scanner phone. Search up the “Monorola Atrix”. There’s no point to have 64bit chip on a IPhone. Its a gimmick since it just add 4gb+ Support.
