Like after every Apple event, competitors do their best in order to show that their products are better than any iDevice out there. The same happened yesterday, after Apple announced their two new iPhones, alongside the iPad mini 4 and iPad Pro.
We’re all aware about the rivalry between Samsung and Apple, so we were keeping a close eye on social media in order to see what the South Korean manufacturer has to say about any of the products.
Surprisingly, their target was the iPad Pro and not the new iPhone 6S, as we were expecting. The tablet features a stylus, introduced as Pencil. When Steve Jobs presented the first iPhone, he wanted to emphasize the fact that a stylus is boring and Apple products don’t need one. Well, look what 2015 brought!
Brace yourselves, here come the tweets!
Samsung didn’t mention anything about Apple, but their tweet was definitely a reference that their Galaxy Note line had a stylus for years, mocking the one used by the iPad Pro.

Sony is another manufacturer that wanted to share its opinion about Apple’s new devices. To be more specific, they also sent a tweet targeted at the iPhone 6S’ battery life. It seems that the power pack has a capacity of 1715 mAh, a bit smaller than last year’s 1810 mAh battery, not being able to last more than a day.
On the other side, Xperia Z5, the manufacturer’s new flagship, can make it through 2 days of intensive use.

Is this just the beginning?
If you ask us, this is just the beginning, as more competitors could come with similar answers.
