If you had to pick between the iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S III, which one you choose?
A new ad from Samsung wants you to think the decision is easy. Released over the weekend, this new ad compares the specifications of the two phones side-by-side, saying that “it doesn’t take a genius” to figure out which one is the better phone.
That phrase, obviously, is taking a shot at Apple‘s famous Geniuses, who pop up in Apple’s stores to tell you all about the company’s products. Looking at the full ad, you can see that the list of specs and features for the Galaxy S III is quite a bit longer than the one for the iPhone 5.
Samsung points to the S III’s 4.8-inch screen running at 1280×720 resolution while the iPhone 5 has a 4-inch one at 1136×640. Both offer 1080p video recording, and while the iPhone 5 may be smaller, the Galaxy S III has it beat when it comes to RAM (2GB to iPhone 5′s 1GB) and talk time (11.4 hours to iPhone 5′s 8).
Apple has fired back with an ad of their own, this one titled “Don’t settle for cheap plastic.” In this ad, we see the iPhone 5 sporting the longer list of specs and features, with around the second half of Samsung’s list for the Galaxy S III missing entirely.
