    It is unusual for a company to compare themselves so obviously against their closest competitor in their ads. But this ad has achieved a huge amount of publicity for Samsung, I wonder was it all helpful.

    I'm due an upgrade on my mobile and plan on getting a Samsung Galaxy SIII in the next couple of weeks. The main reasons I'm choosing the SIII is because I real like its appearance and I'd prefer an Android phone. However, the more I see of these ads and the versions of them that show the features iPhone5 has that are not found on the SIII, the more I wonder if I should be seriously considering the iPhone.

    For those who haven't seen the ad you can view a larger image version of it here.

    Agree that, it is a strange ads. Usually that kind of comparison is make by user instead of head to head competitor.

    Just wondering why the ads influence your purchase decision. Both are good phone, sometime is hard to choose; my best advise is:

    1. Choose S3 if you already have iPad, so that you explorer android system.
    2. Go for iphone as it is to update ios. The non standard of each screen resolution have put android a big trouble for developer.
    3. Thinking of resell value, iPhone always have better value than android phone. When android phone manufacturer keep release new device, the old model is getting drop value.
    4. Choose iPhone, Siri is better than S-voice
    5. Choose S3, it's no require a special sim and special charger.
    6. S3, because Google map better than Apple map
    7. S3, you no need to wait the stock deliver
    8. iPhone, you can explore both jailbreak + itune apps

    I suppose I had my mind set on the S3, but then I started seeing the ads comparing the iPhone and the S3. That made me notice that the iPhone has some advantages over the S3. Anyway, I will probably go with the S3, because I'd prefer have an Android phone.

    I saw those drop tests discussed on FaceBook. Some people were suggesting that they were not very objective, saying that the SIII was dropped to the ground with more force than the iPhone. I don't really see that from watching the video. Anyone else have an opinion?

    This ads is too personal, maybe because of the issue between the company. Consumers nowadays are not stupid, they can now compare who's company produce a better product.

    No offense to Android fans or open-source fans. I'm more than satisfied in what apple is doing from their retina display to the simple touch screen ability. I found that most android softwares have delay in touch screen and browsing. Another thing I dislike is their amoLED which is really good but it is bursting with colors unlike the simplicity of the retina display. On the contrary, Android is an open source which makes the availability and pricing of apps really great and it can use bluetooth and other file sharing thingy which I find it hard when using my iPhone4. I can't send/transfer files phone to phone.
