Here are the first ads for the Samsung Galaxy S4
The Galaxy S4 continues surprising us as even after we got our review unit based on the Snapdragon 600 chip, Samsung outdoes itself in the Exynos 5 Octa version of the handset delivering even better results. But it’s not just about number crunching and geekery - it’s mostly about daily experience with the device, the feature it has and the inspiration it brings.

That’s what Samsung is focusing on in the new Galaxy S4 ads that are starting to hit the world and we have the first three ones.

In them Samsung shows different features of the S4 like the pictures with sound or the group play, or the S Translate function. Some of those novelties seem pretty neat, others are arguably gimmicky, but it’s up to you to decide whether you like them or not.

And here are the 30 second ad spots for the Galaxy S4 that will soon air on your TVs.

This is why Samsung sells a lot of phones,it's because they are great with advertising and marketing. Last year, they invested more money on advertising than r&d

Marketing brings in the market share. Research & Development (that's R&D for noobs) brings in the innovation. Now, I know why all the bloatware. lol

Very true!!! And I agree til it comes to the gimmicks. Even though the only feature I'm looking forward to is the group play. Every other option is bloat/ gimmick like you said. but the gimmicks and shiny stuff are what attracts the general consumer. This is much more effective then what HTC is doing.

Your money goes to samsunng making more advertisement. Honestly the S4 is not impressive at all. I see zero reserach nor development . http://static1.businessinsider.com/image/50b9282869bedd8822000058-940-705/chart-of-the-day-

Idiot, you do know that Samsung spends the most on R&D besides Nokia right? Go do some research before you say anything more retarded.

Yup the first phone to use ddr3 and a big.little chip is not impressive at all. HTC fanboys need to just leave, they can come back after they realize how bad the One is. This is going to be your #1 problem with your soon to be hated One, the battery is TERRIBLE!

It's a new way to sell extra phones. Design extra features that you can only use with people that have the exact same phone (or brand). Apple does it with facetime and Samsung does it with these kind of things.

You can call me whatever you want. If that makes you happy, then I don't mind. You do know that they don't spend money on R&D, But, they steal other company's technology is fact right? Can you please just do some google? al the informations are out there.

lol A quick Google search shows you that they spend more money on R&D in one year than HTC does in multiple years. How clueless can you be?haha

Actually they also spent more on R&D than any other mobile company as well. Samsung just spends more to sell more period.

It's just the normal way of doing business in a capitalist system.. Lots of money in R&D and Marketing results in lots of money from profits..

The advertising sucks

57. Taters

Posts: 6474; Member since: Jan 28, 2013

Or they could be selling a lot of phones because they have been around forever and their products are, GASP, great! I still haven't heard a sembelance of decent proof that supports that marketing is the driving force of Samsung's success yet. All I see is non Samsung fans rationalizing a reason why Samsung phones constantly beat the pants off of their crappy choices in sales.

Are you guys forgetting that Samsung doesn't only make phones? They make virtually everything thats tech based you can think of like Tvs, Fridges, Washers, Speakers, camera laptops etc.

And all their product really suck is the true fact. because they never make anything from scratch. all they do is copy other company's technology. steal the concept iphone from apple. OLED technology from LG and much more..

haha Yeah okay there.... Where does all that R&D money go then? They cook the accounting books so they can pay more taxes to the government? LOL

hey do you own xperia z ? wanna ask a question, how does the speaker on the z work? since it is a waterproof device, the speaker gives the water some space to get into the device, it is impossible to cover a speaker with some sort of flap coz it will make the speaker useless just wondering :) never got my hands on the z yet

9. xperiaDROID

Posts: 5629; Member since: Mar 08, 2013

The speaker is not bad at all, it produces loud and clear sound (in my opinion). And I didn't put my Xperia Z into the water yet, cuz I'm scared! lol But since it is a water-resistant device, I think the phone will be ok when you put into the water. When you take it out from the water, just let it dry and the speaker is ready to go! :)

haha just curious how did sony manage to keep the water from getting into the device when it has a speaker and microphone hole which can make the water getting in why don't you try it ? it is designed to be waterproof so no worries here

Posts: 5629; Member since: Mar 08, 2013

Hahaha.......now you're making me want to put the Xperia Z into the water. I will try that later. I hope it still works afterwards since it is a waterproof device! xD

it certainly will, have you seen the video on youtube where a person wash his z as if it were a plate ?
