Here's how to win a Samsung Galaxy S4 just by looking at it for 60 minutes
What would you do for a Samsung Galaxy S4, also known as the hottest smartphone this side of the universe? Are you ready to, let's say, stare at one for an hour? If that's the case, then Switzerland is where you need to be. Local carrier Swisscom has partnered up with Samsung and has organized this awesome challenge scheduled to take place across multiple cities throughout the country. 

As we already said, one has to stare at a Samsung Galaxy S4 for 60 minutes straight without moving their eyes away. That's easier said than done because the organizers have a dozen of distractions set up, including motorcycles burning rubber and a disgruntled couple (relax, they're actors) yelling next to the contestant's ear on purpose. 

The Samsung Galaxy S4 staredown shows off one of the smartphone's many stand-out features, namely Smart Stay. As frequent readers know, that's what keeps the smartphone's screen on as long as the user is looking at it. 

This video was shot on May 16 at Main Station in Zurich, but there are three more locations where the very same challenge will take place: Lucerne, Schwanenplatz on May 28, Berne, Waisenhausplatz on May 29, and Lausanne Place de l'Europe, on May 30. More information about registering is available at the source below!

Very nice advertisement. Samsung knows how to make very good ads and very bad ads also.

No dumber than those iPad piano commercials or the iPhone 4S commercials with a desolately pathetic John Malkovich having extensive conversations with his personal assistant.

samsung making s5 doesn't mean adding another 2 cores to s4+1 inch big screen...please innovate like nokia did with their camera..41 mp pureview technology.....now thats what i call a innovation...do something different so that you can attract the masses to yourself instead of these dumb marketing techniques....i do agree s4 is the best performer out in the market cpu-wise but do something different from others....

So Smart Stay isnt innovation? The contest is showing off their innovation.... I know being a fan of another company can lead to fanboyism....but cmon...

Who else is using something like Smart Stay....

On that note....nice promotion Samsung that shows off your features. Nice job.

this is smart (stay) advertising. Kudos to Samsung for thinking this, and they should apply it to more contrys and carriers over the Globe.
the interest wil be HUGE!!!
