4 Times Google Subtly Made Fun Of iPhone XS At Its Pixel 3 Event
At its annual launch event yesterday, 9 October, Google unveiled its newest flagship device – Pixel 3
The tech giant has been known to make fun of Apple's iPhones during its launch events in the last two years
Although Google took sarcasm down a few notches (pun intended) this year, here are their subtle jabs at Apple yesterday:
1. A glaring comparison of photos taken on iPhone XS and Pixel 3 in low-light conditions
The Pixel 3 photo was taken with the phone's new 'Night Sight' feature, to which Google has claimed that "you'll never use your flash again".
2. The 'Group Selfie Cam' on Pixel 3 includes 184% more of the background in selfies than iPhone XS does
Short arms? No problem!
3. Google got renowned photographer, Annie Leibovitz to switch to the Pixel 3 from iPhones
4. The company also kept up with its tradition of farcical names for its Pixel phone colours
Major phone manufacturers, including Apple and Samsung, have named their hues as "Space Grey", "Midnight Black", "Coral Blue" and so on.
The new addition to the Pixel's colours, "Not Pink", is widely seen as a direct shot at Apple's decision to name its clearly pink iPhone 8 as "Gold".
