Apple’s next-generation iPhone is said to be just a few weeks shy of its official announcement, but even though the length of time between now and September 9th isn’t particularly extensive, it’s an age in blogosphere terms.

You’d have to have been living in a cave earlier this year to miss the whole Flappy Bird saga. Becoming hugely popular on the App Store and Play Store almost overnight, Flappy Bird raked in huge sums of money for its creator Dong Nguyen on an apparently daily basis. Unfortunately that wasn’t enough to keep him happy though, and his newfound fame – or should that be infamy – caused him to pull the game and almost disappear.

It’s great to see the Korean company finally upping its game from a manufacturing quality stance, but how does the new Alpha smartphone compare against Apple’s purported iPhone 6? These beautiful, high-quality renders throw the two devices side-by-side in a battle for consumer adoration.
