Samsung’s attack on Apple fandom is becoming more and more aggressive. If you chuckled a bit or felt violated by the “It doesn’t take a genius” printed ad, then here’s a video commercial that might make you laugh until you drop or blow up like a time bomb.
Samsung is going out of its way to make the iPhone 5 look inferior to the Galaxy SIII in every way. It’s apparent that Samsung has a grudge against Apple, but in the end consumers decide which slick smartphone to pick up.
The Cupertino-based tech giant is running on all cylinders now that it knows consumers are dying to get their hands on the iPhone 5. Demand for the latest Apple flagship smartphone is so immense that Apple has to push back deliveries of pre-orders by a week or two.
Many people will argue that the Galaxy SIII has components that either match or outclass that of the iPhone 5, but Apple’s marketing prowess has already turned the iPhone into a symbol of status and refinement.
It remains to be seen whether or not Samsung’s campaign to convince people that the iPhone isn’t all that special will be successful. But at least it’s a bit of a change of scenery from the patent wars and trolling that have been plaguing many headlines in recent months.
