Fallacy Detective: Analogies

What is an analogy? It’s when you compare two things, and assume something must be the same about them because other things are similar about them. 

Hmmm…. Let me think of an example. 

“The iPhone 5 has a 4 inch display. The iPhone 5S also has a 4 inch display. Both the 5 and the 5S come in silver, and have a 8 Megapixel camera. The iPhone 5S has a fingerprint sensor, so the iPhone 5 must have one too”

Just a random example :P.
