The promoted Apple event left a little taste among the followers of the brand.

Sensing this discontent, two of its two direct rivals in the mobile market, Samsung and Xiaomi,

took the opportunity to make fun

of the few news that the Cupertino giant introduced in its new iPhone

13s on social networks

.

To avoid legal punishment, both companies refrained from making direct attacks and appealed to irony: while the allusion to Apple is obvious,

it is not mentioned in any of the tweets.

One of the most controversial novelties was the variable refresh rate (Pro Motion) supported by the iPhone Pro (6.1 and 6.7 inches) and which

during the presentation was shown as a great advance

.

This technology is nothing new in the Android world, so the two competitors took advantage of the attention of the press to

remember that they have been available

for a

long time

.

Anyone else feeling deja vu?

Just us?

“Is anyone else experiencing

déjà vu

?

Or just us? ”, Said Samsung Mobile US through its Twitter account, alluding to the similarity

that the iPhone 13 has with the version of the previous year.

In another publication, he explained that the mobile phones of the South Korean company have screens, even in high-mid-range models, that reach

the refresh rate of 120 Hz of "a while" ago

.

Not satisfied with these insinuations, he published that "it would be great" if the iPhone 13 "could be folded in half", in an apparent reference to Apple's attempts to advance in the field of folding, where there are a few players who showed their designs.

"Imagine still having a notch in 2021."

He also criticized that Apple's brand-new devices still

have such a large notch on the screen

: "Imagine having a notch in 2021."

And in the following tweet he tagged the Galaxy Z Fold3, whose front camera is hidden under the screen.

Another of the smartphone manufacturers that apparently scoffed at the introduction of the new iPhones was Xiaomi.

"Friend, just don't do a very long event,

your clients may not have enough battery to see it until the end,

" tweeted Xiaomi Brazil.

IPhones have long struggled to achieve a day of autonomy with their computers.

And while the brand never offers details on the actual capacity, it

is speculated that it could be between 3,400 and 4,300 mAh

, depending on the version of the phone.

- Xiaomi Brasil (@XiaomiBrasil) September 14, 2021

While the standard for

high-end phones on Android is 5,000 mAh

, although this year it is expected to rise a few more points.

For this reason, he pointed out that, last May, the Chinese manufacturer launched its Mi 11 with a 120 Hz screen, 108 megapixel main camera and 4,600 mAh battery.

He also recalled that his device comes with a 55 W fast charger, while

Apple no longer includes a charger or headphones in the box.

This lack of ideas is relegating Apple to the global sales chart.

And although for many years

Samsung

was fighting the first

step, it was already surpassed by Xiaomi

.

The market share of phones in recent years.

According to Counterpoint measurements, the global smartphone market

grew 19% YoY, but decreased 7% QoQ

, as 323 million units were shipped, led by Samsung.

While

Xiaomi reached 52 million smartphones

, becoming the second largest phone brand in the world for the first time.

In this way, Samsung leads the table with a market share of 18%, followed by Xiaomi with 16% and Apple was lower with 15%.
