Samsung scorches Apple in iPhone 5 vs. Galaxy SIII comparison ad

image thumb1181



After an already ugly lawsuit, the gloves come off. Samsung has released a scorching advertisement that transparently compares Apple’s new iPhone 5 feature set (and limitations) to the Samsung Galaxy S III in an advertisement titled “It doesn’t take a genius” (see ad copy above – click to view full-size ad).  “The Next Big Think Is Already Here” appears in bold letters at the bottom of the advertisement with the feature comparison making it clear that Samsung’s technology is far more advanced than Apple’s. Of course we know that geeks buy Android devices because of the superior technology but iPhone buyers can be a fickle bunch. The pre-orders of the iPhone 5 sold out quickly which points towards, well, we’re not sure what it points to. We guess iPhone fans just like the way it looks, the iOS 6 operating system, or maybe that it’s foolproof.  Regardless, the iPhone looks to be another Apple hit while Samsung will most likely continue to erode Apple’s market share.
