Side By Side: Samsung’s 5.3-Inch Galaxy Note Megaphone & The iPhone 4S [Humor]



Over at The Loop, Jim Dalrymple posted a picture of what Samsung’s new 5.3-inch smartphone, the Galaxy Note, looks like next to the iPhone 4S.

While we were over there, guffawing with the rest of you, we happened to note this comment from Joel Glovier, who claims:

Everybody knows this is trick photography, right? The hand on the right is a bit closer to the camera than the hand on the left, as evidenced by the larger shadow of the right hand, and it’s distance away from the hand.

We thought we could put this defense to rest, because at CES, we here at Cult of Mac did a side-by-side comparison shot of the Galaxy Note compared to the iPhone 4S, and — nope — this isn’t trick photography. It really is that big. In fact, we quipped it was an Apple Newton rip-off!

Or as Han Solo might say, “That’s no moon…” But it’s the size of one!
