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...Curmudgeon and Former Member/Participant

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.

Apples just trying to catch up to what other company's have released a long time ago. Bigger screen and better insides.

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.

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.
