Samsung giving away phones and shirts in "Dude, you're a barista" contest
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!

Haha, I love my Nexus so much I want my GF to get one just so I can play with two!

I really want Samsung to succeed with this ad campaign, seeing that Apple has turned into a complete D-BAG!
4. c.hack (Posts: 519; Member since: 09 Dec 2009)
Sure. I'll take a free phone. Too bad the Samsung are cheap plastic POS. The only thing they did well is rip off the iPhone.

Okay, here's an analogy.
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.
You used to make sense.

plastic can absorb an impact better but it'll come up with much more damage i.e. nicks and scratches than metal from a serious fall
20. Gdrye (Posts: 109; Member since: 02 Jan 2012)
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??
21. iamcc (Posts: 1319; Member since: 07 Oct 2011)
Yes. Think about it. The plastic case will absorb some of the impact but the remaining impact is being transferred to the phone.
Glass = less durable than plastic.
Some people like glass phones, some like plastic. Neither is necessarily better or worse but when it comes to "drop-ability" plastic is simply better. No two ways about it.

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....

it reaches the same velocity at the same time because it has the same acceleration as everything else on earth on a vacuum.
What happens is that the force of impact is greater due to the greater mass. Force = mass x acceleration.
The acceleration at a free fall in a vacuum or without any air resistance is 9.8meters/(seconds square)

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**.
8. c.hack (Posts: 519; Member since: 09 Dec 2009)
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.
Poor, mindless iDiot.
13. iamcc (Posts: 1319; Member since: 07 Oct 2011)
Umm my Nexus gets just as good a signal as my Thunderbolt did and I get 12-13 hours on my standard battery up to 16 on extended.
15. gallitoking (Posts: 4690; Member since: 17 May 2011)
you should be ashame to say you own a T-Bolt..how does that phone sells right now?.. and is a 4G LTE that sells for 99.99 on a 2 year agreement.. good luck with that...
14. gallitoking (Posts: 4690; Member since: 17 May 2011)
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...
17. Dmann (Posts: 165; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
If an average person would crash a Ferrari as frequently as drop a cell phone, it would be really stupid to buy a Ferrari.
Almost everyone who owns an iPhone 4/4s has a protective cover.
Imagine a Ferrari with a protective cover...
Now comparing a phone to a woman is just plain stupid. You like your phone like your women, simple minded and much more expensive than its real value.
22. iamcc (Posts: 1319; Member since: 07 Oct 2011)
Where did anyone say it's a piece of junk? Yet again, you are putting words in people's mouth and then arguing with yourself. Congrats.
By the way, I could sell my Thunderbolt for about $100-150 right now if I wanted to... but I actually like that phone and i'm keeping it for a backup.
By the way, the most expensive cars are made from carbon fiber in most cases you dumb as f**k troll.
28. gallitoking (Posts: 4690; Member since: 17 May 2011)
nobody would buy the T-bolt for 150.00 .. and nopt the mosrt expensives care are the classics.. made of metal... so that makes you the dumb one..
32. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5647; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
actually a Thunderbolt could go for $150 pretty easily.
24. twenti7 (Posts: 152; Member since: 09 Jul 2011)
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?
27. gallitoking (Posts: 4690; Member since: 17 May 2011)
is easy to speak when you dont know.. answer is the 1930 Bugatti made mostly out of... you guessed.. metal... nice try though
29. twenti7 (Posts: 152; Member since: 09 Jul 2011)
Whoo! 1930. That's really current. Thank you for your extraordinarily relevant input.
33. twenti7 (Posts: 152; Member since: 09 Jul 2011)
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.
34. gallitoking (Posts: 4690; Member since: 17 May 2011)
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...
36. gallitoking (Posts: 4690; Member since: 17 May 2011)
I admit after i reread my post.. is hard to understand.. but too late to edit..
37. iamcc (Posts: 1319; Member since: 07 Oct 2011)
Oh I understood you perfectly you're just hilarious.
41. kemjus (Posts: 32; Member since: 05 Oct 2011)
So you're saying you like iphones because they are expensive? Thanks, that proves my theory on why people buy them.
7. SleepingOz (unregistered)
I wonder which one looks more like a cheap POS now.. =]
9. networkdood (Posts: 6326; Member since: 31 Mar 2010)
SO, how did the iphone 4S fare in the 'DROP' tests? Yeah, I thought so....
16. gallitoking (Posts: 4690; Member since: 17 May 2011)
do you buy a car based on crash test?... I thought so
18. Dmann (Posts: 165; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
Wouldn´t you consider safety important when choosing a car?
So you would buy a car that statistically kills much more people on accidents just because is prettier?
Please, do that and rid the world from one very, very stupid person.
25. gallitoking (Posts: 4690; Member since: 17 May 2011)
look i buy a car that is proven and reliable..like Honda... do I know how many crash test it had.. the answer is no.. does that means that I dont care.. def not.. any questions
38. jbash (Posts: 342; Member since: 07 Feb 2011)
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..
23. iamcc (Posts: 1319; Member since: 07 Oct 2011)
No. But it factors in...
For instance, if I could buy one car that would shatter on impact (iPhone in this case) vs another phone that would NOT shatter on impact, that would weigh heavily in my decision making process, no?

Not a Samsung fan, this ad is awesome though :)
12. mctcm (Posts: 204; Member since: 19 Oct 2011)
The Nexus does not cheap in any way, shape or form.
As far as build quality, get a razr. then an iphone (if you want a phone from 2007, that is)
43. XiphiasGladius (Posts: 804; Member since: 21 Aug 2011)
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. . .
