It is not just the politicians who sling mud at each other, it seems that makers of smartphones have now jumped on the bandwagon in their efforts to reign supreme in the smartphone market. This year the biggest smartphone battle so far was the Samsung Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 5. And now one mud-slinging ad by Samsung which aimed to put the iPhone 5 down has inadvertently won the title of 2012’s best tech ad.
Samsung Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 5 ad gets top votes
