10 funny, awesome, and entertaining smartphone commercials
Okay, it's pretty safe to say that commercials have become a form of art a long time ago, as successfully promoting a given product is among the key priorities of almost any company. Thus, they need to pack a hefty amount of creativity. Smartphone manufacturers are no different – in fact, some of them spend shedloads of money on marketing (we are looking at you, Samsung). Thus, it comes as no surprise that the industry has created some ads that promote their product in a downright funny, entertaining, and hilarious way.
We've made a pick of some smartphone ads that really made us giggle quietly in the office. We've also thrown in a feature phone ad for a good measure, as it is quite hilarious, too. It is important to say that some of the ads indirectly (yet some are pretty directly, if you ask us) attack their rivals. At the same time, certain manufacturers have chosen a harder, yet definitely more creative way to promote their devices and pinpoint their strengths. Whether you like this or not depends on your personal preference.
Check out the ads right below and tell us which one of these is your favorite one. Naturally, if an utterly amusing and humorous commercial has slipped under our radar, feel free to share it in the comments section!

LOL.....that Lumia 900 ad (no.4) is such an irony :D........A phone with windows 7 is calling other phones 'beta testers' ?! xD
We all know how what MS did with those poor WP7 owners ;)
Suggestion: PA, can you create a YT playlist from now onwards so that saves the hassle of manually jumping through all the videos.

Those poor WP7 users got more updates (nodo, mango, tango, 7.8) than any android device owner got.
If u call WP7 users poor for such support, what do u call S3 ( its ad "the next big thing" is also here) users whose their 1 GB ram phones weren't "fit" for the 512 mb ram optimized kitkat ? Ironically, the lumia 620, which was released not too far from the s3 release date with 1/4 of the s3 price tag, has support for WP8.1 and beyond, speaking of "beta testing".

LOL...No need to be butthurt about it. I'm just pointing out the irony.
'More updates' doesn't mean more features. WP was an awfully crippled OS which even didn't have a notification centre or customizable tiles. Not to mention the big app-gap.
BTW,only GS3 with Exynos chip didn't receive the update. However, unlike S3 owners WP can't custom install the software unless their overlord MS allows them to do so. That's the power of open source :)

WP 7/7.1./7.5/7.8, before 8 is really the beta tester, because the apps compatibility break between the WP 7.x and 8.x. So, no matter how much upgrade they got, it still no good.

windows phones became full fledged smartphones only after wp8. wp7 is nothing when compared to other OSs.

Wow, that second one took so long to get to the point, which could barely even be considered a point...

I love Motorola's commercials where that guy is the phone. They're so funny...

I thought that ads is lame (in a good way). Not really funny, but got to the point.
