You might remember the first Samsung ad in the series that shows Apple iPhone users waiting in line to buy the next version of the phone, when a Samsung Galaxy S II user livens up the crowd by showing off her device. While most of those who saw the Android model were impressed with the customization, one guy notes that he couldn't buy a Samsung phone because he was creative. His friend replied, "Dude, you're a barista" and a great put down line was born.
Samsung is also using the line in a Twitter based contest. Simply follow @SamsungMobileUsa on Twitter to participate in daily giveaways that include the Samsung Galaxy S II and the Samsung GALAXY Nexus handsets. And if you don't win a phone, you might end up with something just as cool, the official "Dude, you're a barista" t-shirt!
To enter the contest, visit the sourcelink. Good Luck.
Car bumpers used to be made of metal. Metal is nice and sturdy. Some time ago they switched to making most bumpers out of plastic... plastic is cheaper but actually works better in crash circumstances.
Now think phones. Yes, a phone made entirely from glass may technically not be as "cheap" as plastic, but do you really want the phone you take everywhere with you to be made entirely of glass? If the answer is yes, good for you. If the answer is no, good for you.
Just because the phones are plastic doesn't make them "cheap" or "POS". I absolutely love that my Nexus is made from plastic and unless they had a metal/glass alternative that was equally as durable and lightweight I would never change my opinion.
We get that you don't like Android, c.hack. But your worthless trolling is getting to be as bad as taco was before they banned him.
i always thought that it mattered what material phones were made out of, till i realized that all im going to do is put a case on the phone and it will turn to rubber anyway, of all iphones in that video quite a few had cases on them already..so does it really matter??

The iPhone is considerably heavier than the SGSII as well, which means when dropped it reaches terminal velocity quicker, and therefore hits the ground at a far greater speed than the much lighter SGSII - ie, the iPhone glass really has no chance unless it has inbuilt airbags lol....
your are retarded c.hack if you knew anything youd know plastic is much better than glass for a device that the average person drops 15 times or more a year. also cars are made of a ton of plastic now days instead of metal why? becuse it works. if you believe that look on youtube at the galaxy vs iphone drop test and tell me what ones a cheap piece of sh**.
Typical for a brainless Droidlet. The only parts in a car made of plastic are ones that see no wear. Saturn tried plastic cars - the plastic cracked and shattered under collision.
Keep defending your cheap piece of plastic. Too bad it has poor signal, 4 hours battery life and Samsung has to stoop to give it away.
Poor mindless Droidlets.
Parts that see no wear. You mean like the bumpers, side skirts, and entire interiors? Typical for iDiots. Running tour mouth without any regard for facts. For the record, my GSII gets flawless signal and I regularly get 10+, hours on a charge. Oh, and that's with at least about 5 hours of web surfing, streaming music, and watching videos.
so if a car doesnt do well against crash test. then they are pieces of yunk?.. wrong.. the most expensives cars are the ones made with metal.. not plastic.. example lets see how much you gan get for your plastic phone against my beautiful glass covered iphone4 S, and see how that goes...I like my phone like i want my women.... beautiful...
You're kidding, right? The most expensive (and best performing) cars from Lamborghini, Koenigsegg, Bugatti,etc. are made almost entirely from carbon fiber, and use as little metal as possible. Even the more affordable cars that are built for performance use more fiberglass than metal. . Yes, there are some very expensive cars made from metal, but more often than not their only purpose is to look good and make sure that everyone around you knows how much money you have. Hmm. What does that remind you of?
Actually since that car is no longer in production and can't be purchased new, it is a completely invalid point. So the only thing it proves is that you're willing to stoop down to any level to try and make yourself appear better.
that was not the point.. the point was that plastic is cheaper and durable but is not always the best options... and used cars as an example to prove that durability is not always the best options.. if you call that low.. well then it is...
crash test do factor in. I carry very precious cargo(my beautiful daughter) so I always check to see its realiability in a test. Also why i have ghost armor(invisashield alternative) and a defender otterbox on my phone. I protect my investments.. so in a way safer cars are like a realy good phone case..
Heck if people really need durability/ superb build quality then buy a smartphone built like a tank (xperia active, samsung [sorry forgot the name]), or better just keep using either your nokia 5110, 3210, and 3310, those phones are darn cheap nowadays, and are built like a tank. . .
