Samsung gives Apple an iBashing in its latest Galaxy ads

Samsung's latest advertisements for its Galaxy devices bashes the iPhone screen size and iPad multitasking

Samsung has just released two new ads highlighting its new Galaxy Note 3 smartphone, and Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 tablet. The first ad, below, features basketball star LeBron James using the Galaxy Note 3 smartphone. A voiceover mocks the iPhone's screen size and quality, as well as its lack of stylus.

The second ad, which is centered around the new Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1. The ad makes fun of the iPad Air 'Pencil' TV spot, where the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 is actually thinner than both the pencil, and the already pencil-thin iPad Air. Multitasking is another thing Samsung makes a big point of in the new TV spot, something that the iPad still isn't truly capable of.

The Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 is just 7.3mm thick, while the iPad Air measures in at 7.5mm thick. The screen quality, as Samsung points out, is much better on the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1, with a 2560x1600 resolution, compared to 2048x1536 on the iPad Air.
