New Samsung ad focuses on BYOD

0. phoneArena posted on 20 Jan 2013, 22:38

Much has been written about the new trend toward BYOD in the workplace, which is the focus of a new 90 second ad from Samsung for the Samsung Galaxy S III and the Samsung GALAXY Note II; the target of the ad is the Apple iPhone 5 and BlackBerry and while it might not be as funny as the barista ads, it still features some funny lines...

Having to sit through this commercial about 50 times was worth it to watch the 49ers and Ravens get to the Super Bowl. Samsung's not one to skimp on ad dollars.

Samsung wants to be Apple but in the end they will drive themselves into the ground.

oh yeah yeah you're so right! thats why Sammy beat Apple as the top handset manufacturere by more than double in sales for the first time since they locked horns and Apple is desperate this year thats why they're always launching rehashed versions of their idevices with minimal improvements and calling it new.
Thats why Apple is developing the stylus like the one on the Note 2 for a larger screen variant...thats why they actually are trying to lauch three variants with larger screen sizes.....and the beat goes on!
But yeah you're so right....cute!

So its a silly, stupid add with some good points in how inflexible people are in the modern business market using cellular device, who farking cares? Don't get your panties in a wad about it. Blackberry is all but on its deathbed, people are scared of change and the smartphone world is a volitale, changing market. If your that butt hurt by the truth, go to Starbucks, get a coffee and go sit in a corner with your iPhone and shut up.

Let's samsung focus first on battery charging issues on S3. In the web I read lot of complaints on S3 charging issue. Samsung has to fix ASAP

Sounds like a user error. A lot of people with S3's, like millions, don't have charging issues.

IMO this article was pretty badly written, it had no direction, no focus. In fact, why is this ad even on PA?

This ad is naive and misleading at the same time. You know what business people still use (at least the ones I see in London)? They use "ancient" Nokias and BBs. You know why? Because they can use and abuse them for days. Now, Sammy and Apple are trying to shove down our throats that business is about "productivity" apps and styluses and highlighting a sentence on a pdf document. No. Business is about receiving emails, sending emails, reading documents, talking on the phone (a lot, sometimes using blutetooth) and, occasionaly, accessing the web. And if I had to choose between a fancy battery hog (which every single Android phone and iPhone is) and a "plain" smartphone that could do all the above, I would defo go for the tested, trusted smartphone. Don't get me wrong, I like these gadgets as much as the next guy, but let's be honest here, it's not anymore about the "phone" aspect. These are multipurpose, pass-time, entertainment-centric gadgets shown in this ad. Nothing wrong with that, but it's going to be a long time before they reach the consitstency and longevity required for the business world.
