OnePlus and Meizu tease Apple over the iPhone 6

Chinese upstarts OnePlus and Meizu are already pointing fun at the recently launched iPhone 6 range with a couple of images posted on their respective Facebook pages.

When Apple released the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, there was plenty of sniggering from the Android community. For a company that had stood firm against large display’s to finally thrown in the towel with 2 new large screen options was just too funny for Android purists.

It’s not just the size that fans and even smartphone companies have picked up on though, as both OnePlus and Meizu have taken friendly digs at Apple with posts on their Facbook pages today.

OnePlus decided to welcome Apple to the “Plus Family” joking about the use of the world Plus in the new large iPhone’s name. While Meizu complimented Apple on the design of the iPhone 6, which does happen to have a few similar design aspects as the Meizu MX4.

Fans of both company have found the messages to be playful and good-natured, we wonder if iPhone fans will see them in the same light?

    Funny that Meizu’s lead designers can’t make anything other than a almost carbon copy of anything Apple makes.

      Sorry? What does the iPhone 6 look like? An MX4. Which came first?

        No offense but most of the past Meizu products were heavily inspired by
        Apple. Even to this day they copy a lot what Apple does. However Apple also copies from android so I guess it’s a magical circle.

      I have honestly never noticed any similarity between the two, apart from the similar curve angle to early iPods, which really is not much to compare

    Apple happens to be running short on ideas.

    If I were Apple I would “answer” by the simply posting a chart showing Meizus revenue, Oneplus revenue (do they even have one?) and Apples revenue… doesnt even need any more words xD

      That’s rude. They’re not offensive posts, they’re more towards light humour and are a lot more good natured than usual.

      yeah but meizo doesn’t sell their products to fools who pay 3 times what its worth because of the name…and stand in the street for 6 days waiting to see one.

      I would Apple would have more revenue they are a much larger company than either of those two (although Opo is a shell for BBK Electronics). That wouldn’t change the fact that Apple copied Android trends….

    the MX4 Is badass, that edge to edge screen is gorgeous, and despite the large screen it’s not a huge brick, thanks to thin bezels. Apple fucked up big time this time. I don’t see how they will get out of this post jobs depression.

      Ever since Jobs they have lacked innovation and creativity. All of their new tech these days is just playing catch up to what Android already offers, except the antique hardware they still refuse to give up.

    Dumb, dumb, dumb. You want to build support for your brand in new markets? Don’t use these schoolyard taunts. All they do is bring out the fanboys to hurl insults at one another. No one takes these cheap one-liners as an opportunity to weigh the benefits & drawbacks of your product vs. the competition. Or reflect on the bigger issues at stake, for that matter. OnePlus you’d expect since they’ve already proved they’re going to be “edgy” and “social” with their marketing. Meizu? Unexpectedly cocky from a formerly low-key, our-products-speak-for-themselves company.
