Samsung Galaxy S4 has dominated news cycles for the last couple of days. Samsung is finally doing something right because Apple is now feeling the heat.
We have already heard Phil Schiller making statements about how Android devices are fragmented and not very good and so on.
Apple has now launched a new section on their website showcasing Why iPhone is the better device.
The page highlights some very inaccurate statements obviously. Something that Apple has been doing for a long time now.
I would point out one of the biggest inaccuracies:
The Retina display on iPhone ushered in the era of super-high-resolution displays. Its pixel density is so high, your eye can’t distinguish individual pixels. The images and words are amazingly vivid and crisp. Everything just looks so real. In fact, once you see a Retina display, you’re never satisfied with anything less. Yet it remains a feature found only on iPhone and other Apple products.
Retina is an Apple trademark. But it is not an Apple technology. HiDPI displays are now available on competing Android devices. In fact, HTC One has a display that has more pixels per inch than any other smartphone in the market today. Sony Xperia Z and Samsung Galaxy S4 also have better resolution than the Apple iPhone 5.
Apple also highlights that only the iPhone has Siri. Of course… Siri is a technology they gained from Nuance. Google Android devices have Google Now which most technical analysts have admitted is more powerful and useful compared to Siri. But then, this is a subjective thing. Some people prefer Siri, others prefer Google Now.
