    Default It Doesn't Take A Genius...

    First of all, the cheesy Samsung "it doesn't take a genius" ad is a pathetic attempt to smear the iPhone 5. However, there are a couple of good take-offs on that ad, too. Here are the ones I've seen so far...

    Dont frown about it. Competition is good!

    These ads wont change people's mind. Those who are Samsung fans will love the ads and keep buying their phones and Apple fans will be iPhones. Its just fun with a bit of humor

    Yeah don't sweat it. Just the competition focusing more on the competitor than their own device. THe only thing you see in a Samsung commercial is the people taking pictures. I have a SGS3 and it's a very good device for me. No real issues but just not my type of device. As a company you're going to try to oversell your item and undersell the competition so this isn't surprising. Good thing is many Apple users don't care about specs which is why Apple barely talks about those things.

    It doesn't take a genius to understand that the SGS3 offers the future.

    Сurrent world is not about functions. They have to be great in order for a product to survive. the issue that Samsung does not dig is that you have to be cool to win. And you cannot get cool with such ads.

    No. Apple is marching to the beat of their own drummer, focusing on creating the best phone for them, and slowly giving people what they actually need. They have a Goal in mind, and they'll create that.

    I will never, ever, ever get the need for their battery hungry gargantuan screens! No kidding these phones have removable batteries, the screens suck power like a Hoover.

    Actually, if you've been paying attention you'd notice, they're not competing in the rat race of "our phone has the best specs, biggest processor, and the biggest screen, therefore its the greatest phone in the world". They're more concerned about outdoing themselves, and beating their previous designs.

    It does take a genius to realize that the stronger the competitors are in the mobile market, the consumer wins.

    Personally, I hope Samsung, HTC, Apple, Nokia, iOS, WM, Android etc etc all thrive. Pushing each other to innovate and compete. Thats the difference between being a Fanboi and a Mobile Phone Enthusiast.

    It doesn't take a genius to realize iOS is not about specs. Let them come out with an S4 with eight cores, 3 gigs of RAM and I guarantee you our A6 iphone 5 chip will still run the iPhone 20 times smoother than their newest android with Alienware computer specs.
