Sony asks Siri “what about the battery life?” of the iPhone 6S and suggests that you switch to its new Xperia Z5, which boasts 2 days of battery life.

Product launches often present your rivals with an opportunity to score some extra publicity for themselves by drawing attention to some features that they can do better. Sony seems to have found such a sore spot, taking aim at Apple’s newly announced iPhone 6S and its unchanged battery life.

Apple declared that the iPhone 6S will offer the same battery performance as last year’s flagship, meaning that we’re probably looking at a similarly sized 1,810mAh battery. Apple claims around 12 hours of internet use and 24 hours of talk time on a single charge, which doesn’t sound too bad, but the iPhone is pretty well known for not lasting heavy users through an entire day. However, Sony boasts 2 days of use with its newly announced Xperia Z5 line-up, which feature batteries ranging from 2,700mAh to 3,430mAh depending on the model. The company took to Twitter to ask Siri “what about the battery life?”

If that wasn’t cheeky enough for you, the Tweet also contains a link to Sony’s website, where users are guided through how to switch from iOS to a new Sony smartphone. Sony isn’t the only company lining up jabs at Apple’s latest release either. Samsung has been posting a series of Tweets about its latest Galaxy S6 line-up and has also spotted a familiar feature in among Apple’s new products.

These jabs are unlikely to alter many minds, but do you think that Samsung or Sony are also making a valid point? What do you think about the features included with Apple’s latest smartphones?

By the numbers: iPhone 6S vs the Android competition
