Phone Makers Poke Fun At Apple's IPhone 5s And 5c On TwitterBy cheatmaster 01:48 Sat, 17 Jul 2021 Comments
Apple's iPhone 5s and 5c announcement brought on a lot of mockery from other makers, who unleashed all their zingers on Twitter.
Nokia, who started the colorful polycarbonate trend, was blushing after the 5c announcement:
Thanks, #Apple ;) pic.twitter.com/x4w3r8Ghcy— Nokia UK (@nokia_uk) September 10, 2013
The Finns then took a jab at the grecent color of the iPhone 5s:

Denny's also had something to say about the grecent option:

Windows Phone (now best buddies with Nokia) listed the things Apple didn’t announce – a gigantic screen, manual controls and a 41MP camera.
5 things Apple didn’t announce todayhttp://t.co/1X8WYrGm2H It’s #timetoswitch to the #WindowsPhone Lumia 1020 w/ 41 MegaPixel (MP) & reinvented zoom.— Windows Phone (@windowsphone) September 10, 2013
"8MP is still 8MP" continues to say Windows Phone:
8 megapixels is still just 8 megapixels. See what you can do with 41:http://t.co/4ks5d7FreB #timetoswitch to #WindowsPhone— Windows Phone (@windowsphone) September 10, 2013
HTC chimes in that 15% bigger pixels isn't much:
2>1.5. Basic math. Innovation at its finest.— HTC USA (@HTCUSA) September 10, 2013
Motorola remembered the fingerprint thing isn't new:
"@Motorola: Remember that one time you were stoked to give your fingerprints? Us either. #LazyPhonehttp://t.co/S3CIUiNhJv"— IG: MrWooten2013 (@WayneWins2Much) September 11, 2013
ColorWare, known for painting the iPhone among others, recommended recent colors are no gigantic deal. Still, the company says it will be painting the recent iPhone 5s and is investigating whether painting the fingerprint sensor enhanced Home button will be possible.
Are you excited about the #iphone5S #iphone5C or neither? #colorware— ColorWare (@ColorWare) September 10, 2013
Even individuals took to Twitter to try their hands at standup comedy, pointing out the holes in the iPhone 5c may not be great:
Massive design flaw with the recent #iPhone5C cases, Steve Jobs would have fired a lot of people if he saw this! #fact pic.twitter.com/zem0Bt9g6H— Eugene du Toit™ (@Genie_Oz) September 11, 2013
