Samsung Ad 'The Next Big Thing' [Video]

iPhone 5

It seems Samsung is relentlessly pursuing Apple Fanboys -- going after the iPhone 5. just a few days ago Samsung ran a print ad called ' It doesn't take a genius'. The ad does a comparison between the iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy s III. Well the latest is a video called 'The next big thing is already here' - this time poking fun at the people waiting in line outside the Apple stores wiating to be the first to get their hands on the all new iPhone 5. The video cleverly shows how the Galaxy S 3 already has features that the iPhone 5 will be coming with and some features that have not yet come to the iPhone. For instance the large screen that the iPhone 5 is getting is already there on the S3, 4G LTE connectivity already available. Samsung also references the phone as 'GS3' bringing about the hip quotient. The biggest dog seems to be the guy who is waiting in line reserving a spot for his parents. This jibe at the iPhone 5 to show that the next big thing is already here and the iPhone 5 is already old before it comes out. So will the ad have an impact, let us know in the comments section below.

iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S 3

Samsung the Korean company released a print ad over the weekend taking a shot at the iPhone 5. The ad is called 'It doesn't take a genius' -- and listed below are features of the iPhone 5 compared to the Samsung Galaxy S III. The S 3 is now considered the main competitor of the iPhone 5 and there is also a rumor that Samsung will have the Samsung Galaxy S 4 available by March 2013. The S 3 to its credit has sold more than 20 million copies worldwide. The iPhone 5 however has already surpassed 2 million in pre-orders, with the phone being available on Friday. The Galaxy 3 III last month became the top selling SmartPhone in the US. Apple fanboys however were not amused with the ad and retaliated with their own versions of the Ad.
