Samsung’s taking the fight for smartphone dominance to Apple. In a new commercial for the Galaxy Note 3, Samsung hits Apple right where it hurts: screen size.
Running the slogan, “The Next Big Thing Is Here,” Samsung wants to promote the larger screen size of their Galaxy Note 3 offering, as well as promoting the S Pen stylus that comes with the Note 3.
The Galaxy Note 3 has a 5.7-inch screen, while the iPhone 5S only has a 4-inch display. People on Twitter have had some amusing reactions to the commercial.
Also, funny that Samsung still fighting the iPhone. To read some stories, you’d have thunk Samsung won this ages ago. http://t.co/DNjCtPS5fc

The Samsung commercial is also getting a lot of attention because of who it stars. The commercial features footage of none other than basketball legend LeBron James. At one point, LeBron “runs away” from the iPhone’s smaller screen.
What do you think about the battle between Samsung and Apple? Do you prefer the larger, phablet-sized offering from Samsung, or do you find it cumbersome compared to the sleeker iPhone 5S? And what do you think of the S Pen stylus?
