Samsung Galaxy S III Video: A Day in the Life (of Leave it to Beaver Hell)
I have always been a huge fan of Android commercials because of all the special effects and futuristic themes. Then there is the T-Mobile spokes babe Carly who we all know and love. AT&T tried to scare the crap out of us with a spider. But even the worst of the commercials (and this one) look better than the Samsung Galaxy S III video I just watched.
Think of being strapped to a chair and subjected to 3:37 minutes of Leave it to Beaver Hell where June Cleaver wrote and directed the whole thing. It’s basically the same pain as watching the attached Sammy Video on the GS3. The proverbial straps in the video is how awesome the GS3 is with all it’s hardware and new software. It keeps you glued to the screen while inside you are screaming for help. The horror of being a tech geek!
Anyway, it’s Friday and this video while horrid, does a decent job illustrating how awesome the GS3 is and undoubtedly how big a hit it is going to be. It’s loaded with specs like a Super AMOLED HD screen, and most likely the dual core processor instead of the quad core our friends across the pond will get. While I am currently loving my Titan II, I have to admit that the GS3 is really super sexy. Drop a comment and let me know how you will fight through the weekend with the haunting memory of Leave it to Beaver Hell.
See this is where Samsung is messing up. The show the AllShare DLNA and it says on Samsung DLNA TVs. Not many in circulation and they don’t realize that with iCloud and SkyDrive now doing the auto-sync of files they are much more broad.
Its like they jammed every single thing they could think of into the commercial. Why in blazers would you tell your phone you want to take a picture? I have half the mind to make a skit with me replying back “push the camera buttton and stop bugging me!”
Again some of the features are really good but they aren’t differentiators, just status quo. The kid is playing a racing game on the phone. How is that any different than what any smartphone can do nowadays and seeing how many phones are roughly the same screen size its not like that is a big deal either.
Apple knows how to show off the Retina Display. Samsung tries to showcase the display while applying a folksy tint to the commercial which zaps, intentionally i might add, the color pop and saturation from the entire thing.
I keep asking myself how corporations this large exist while having such horrible ad agencies.
I too didn’t like that commercial. They could have easily differentiated themselves from others by showing some of the Samsung only features that are missing in the rest of Android crap.
Screen looked pretty good in bright sunlight. Did they borrow that from Nokia, or were those images simulated. And if so, anything else Memorex? Just sayin. Oh, and what operating system was that phone using? Did they say.
Horrible commercial! Great phone! Why is the US getting the shaft again with the release? I understand about the duel/quad core issues, but why make us wait yet again? Very frustrating. Makes me want to go get an HTC. Do they release phones to the rest of the world months before the States? Going to look into that. HTC One X looking nice.
