Well, that didn’t take long. Samsung just released a brand new advertisement which reads as a spec sheet comparing the iPhone 5 to the Galaxy S III. The ad, with the headline of “It doesn’t take a genius” goes on to compare each smartphone spec by spec, not forgetting to mention that the new iPhone has a totally different plug.

A quick look at the ad, makes it appear in a straight spec for spec comparison of the iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S III that the Galaxy S III would have the iPhone 5 beat.  Of course, there are several additional things on that list that are missing that would even out the playing field.  At the end of the day it’s the consumers choice to vote with their wallets and despite the new Samsung ad, Apple sold out of its first batch of iPhone 5’s in just under an hour early Friday morning. You can see the full ad in all its glory below.
