Samung’s iPhone-mocking ad named most viral tech ad of 2012

As December begins, the year starts coming to a close, and with that comes the "best of 2012" awards for pretty much everything. Video tracking service Visible Measures has rounded up the most popular tech ads of 2012, and surprisingly, Apple isn't in the top five. Even more surprising, is that Samsung owns three out of the top five spots on the list -- the number one ad being Samsung's iPhone-mocking commercial that touts "the next best thing is already here."

Samsung shows how they stress test the Galaxy S III

We've all seen those ridiculous drop tests. The ones where people drop brand new gadgets on purpose and try to get them to break. While we all know that almost any smartphone will break when you drop it, what we really want to know is how smartphones hold up when their buttons are pressed thousands of times in a row.

Samsung Galaxy S III world’s most popular smartphone in Q3 (but iPhone 5 will change that)

Samsung's Galaxy S III ousted the iPhone 4S from the top-spot of world's best-selling smartphone in Q3 2012, new research indicates, with vast distribution and hefty operator subsidies credited for its success. 18m of the Samsung smartphones were shipped in the July-September period, according to Strategy Analytics' count, versus 16.2m iPhone 4S models.

Smart device specs are over, long live the ecosystem

If there were ever a time when it was more evident that the software ecosystem surrounding a device was more important than the hardware inside it, it's now. As evidenced first by the rapid rise of Samsung with their Galaxy S III vs the iPhone advertisements and the subsequent massive sales of their whole Galaxy family, then by the almost surprisingly positive reviews the Nokia Lumia 920 is receiving here at the dawn of Windows Phone 8, the importance of the software has tipped the scales. Any brand that doesn't roll with this understanding will soon be eclipsed.

Nokia Lumia 920 PureView camera hands-on vs Samsung Galaxy S III

The Nokia Lumia 920 in its AT&T iteration has landed on the SlashGear test bench complete with PureView imaging and Carl Zeiss wide-angle optics this week - so of course it's immediately time to test it against the Samsung Galaxy S III. We'll be testing its camera against the iPhone 5 as well rather soon - and whatever other devices you request as well - but first it's time to battle one of the biggest competitors Nokia has in the field. The Samsung Galaxy S III wasn't originally pushed specifically on its photo-taking abilities nearly so much as the Lumia 920 has been, so pay close attention to how they compare in some real-world tests.
