Comparing to unlike things using like or as it is like a metaphor but metaphors dont use like or as. Simile example: His hand is as cold as ice.

A simile is a figure of speech which involves the comparison of one thing with another. A simile mostly uses "like," "as," "than," or a verb like "resembles" to make the comparison between the two. You can check out http://examples.yourdictionary.com/examples-of-similes.html for more examples.

Basically, it's when you compare something to another using words such as like or as. EX: The man was as strong as an ox, but the woman was skinny like a broom.
