New Samsung Galaxy S4 ad features dad swaddling baby, shows clever use of features
posted by Alan F. / Jun 04, 2013, 5:19 AM
The very latest ad for the Samsung Galaxy S4 focuses on a new dad who is trying to swaddle his infant son. Using Air Gesture, he swipes above the phone to answer it. It's his Wife who wants to know if there are any problems. "No, we're having a dudes' day home, it's fine," he tells her. But clearly he needs help. "Hey Galaxy, search YouTube for swaddling tips," he orders S Voice. He watches the video from YouTube which pauses automatically when he starts to follow the steps he sees on the video. That's Smart Pause, folks.
So Dad completes the task, baby is all swaddled nice and tight and...PLOP. That's number 2 on a commercial for the Samsung Galaxy S4. We would have to say that Samsung does a good job in showing how the features on the Samsung Galaxy S4 can actually be used in a real-life scenario and are not gimmicks like many suggest.

Sammy has learned from apple to show off the usefulness of the phone, not brag about specs. Good job Sammy, nice commercial too

this is primarily how samsung has sold RECORD numbers of phones. marketing. just imagine what will happen once they actually produce slightly less plastic phones. the S4 is on a TV ad every third commercial break during most sporting events, and i see the HTC One How often? maybe 2-3 times a week during prime time programming. I've stated this before, HTC needs to push marketing big time, if they want to be in the same ballpark as Samsung and Apple. the general public have no idea what or who HTC is. apple and samsung on the other hand, are household names.

so when someone calls you, you wave your hand to answer the call, and to play a youtube video you need to touch..very useful feature indeed..

when you look away from the screen while a video is going, the video stops playing automatically. so he wasn't playing and stopping the video every time with his hand.Its a feature on the phone when your eyes make contact with the front facing camera it it continues its action.

actually if I'm watching a video and someone decides to talk to me, as a respectable human being, I'm going to make eye contact with them and would love my device to pause until I'm done with the conversation. And I use a few apps that have videos (iFunny) where that would come in handy.

Stupid huh? Shouldnt just we thank samsung for doing things like these.. IT MAY NOT BE USEFUL DAILY, BUT IT IS BETTER TO HAVE THESE FEATURES IF WE NEED OR WANT TO THAN NEVER HAVING SMART FEATURES IN OUR ENTIRE LIFE!!! this is a SMARTphone, not just a PHONE!
