Apple iPhone 6 announcement: Best reactions from rivals & the Web
  • The Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have finally been announced. The devices have sparked colourful reactions on social media from all over the world.

Like it or hate it, you follow it. Whenever Apple launches a new phone, people talk about it and that's something you can’t take away from the company. With that in mind, here are some of the best reactions that this year’s iPhone 6 announcement got.

With love, from competitors…

Competitors like Samsung, Sony, HTC and others took to trolling Apple on its new devices. Samsung started the trolling, putting up a paid promotion for the Galaxy Note 4 on the day of the iPhone 6 announcement. This resulted in #GalaxyNote4 trending right above #AppleLive all through the event. Of course, Samsung has been trolling Apple for a long time, even with the Galaxy S5.

Sony wasn’t far behind either, tweeting, “Better than bigger,” just when Apple announced the new device. To put it in context, Apple is using the catchphrase ‘bigger than bigger’ for its new device(s).
