New ads for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 do away with bouncy and show up the magic wand

New ads for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 do away with bouncy and show up the magic wand
Samsung’s marketing machine continues with straight forward, relevant, and entertaining ads for its products, the latest of which, the Galaxy Note 4, is enjoying some time in the spotlight.

Samsung makes enough devices that it is easy to get a little fatigued trying to keep up with their product portfolio. However, their recent flagships have proven worthy of in-depth examination, and certainly worthy of Samsung’s marketing efforts.

The Galaxy Note 4 is a natural advancement from its predecessor, the hardware is upgraded, and Samsung’s familiar TouchWiz user interface has been refined. From a technical or geek standpoint, there were few surprises with the device that defined the phablet segment. However, Samsung has a knack for appealing to the consumer, and it does so with focused, but fun commercials that people can relate to.

The two latest ads for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 touch on the S-Pen (of course), and the excellent 16-megapixel camera. The S-Pen is deemed a magic wand, and the camera is something that will handle prom-scale selfies and bouncy castles.

Wish Samsung would put a camera button on more of their phones. The extra button is a great addition to the Galaxy S5 Active.

If you really want a camera button why not just use the volume key instead?

Because a volume key doesn't have half-press for focus. And on many phones, a volume key won't wake the phone up and put it into camera mode, so you can take a picture immediately. It seems that you have never used a phone with a dedicated camera button (Lumia, Xperia Z, etc.). They are useful.

If you have an open mind and a taste for change... This phone is so cool. Android IOS aside, this phone is just super cool. Unless you haven't seen, held or used if before. It finally landed in my country yesterday at the mall and I played with it for about 30mins. Too bad I don't have the money to buy it right away. I'll wait for some few months for the price to drop. The camera is amazinggggggg!!!!

LOL......haters always find reason to troll. The SENSOR is by sony not the CAMERA. There is more to camera then just sensor. If they were so great at their camera why do they fail to implement it successfully on their own flagship ?! By your logic, if I like a cotton shirt, I should go and congratulate the sheep...SMH Did you congratulate Samsung for the A8 chip ? Give credit when credit is due...

butthurt ? calm down lol if samsung good at processor why exynos sucks ? ppl prefers snapdragon version over exynos. A8 is designed by apple manufactured by samsung. A8 chip is not designed by samsung

haha.....Is this your best objective argument, 'exynos suck' ?! Do you realize how easily exynos beats Snapdragon on all benchmarks ? Do you realize how it is made on A53/A57 big.LITTLE architecture which is miles ahead of half-baked A9s of Snapdragon ?! Do you know it is made on 20nm smallest mobile SoC ? Do you know it is 64bit ready and SD805 isn't ?! Basically, Exynos 7 has already the setup of A53/57 which WILL be used by SD810 and hence is already a generation ahead of SD805. I am sure you can come up with a better reply then, 'Exynos sucks'. Stick to what you know rather then parroting stupid Apple fanboys' statements. The only reason why Samsung didn't put it in all Note4 was because of production yields. Otherwise Exynos 7 obliterates SD805. 'A8 chip is not designed by samsung' - Exactly ! The same way Note4's camera is not designed by Sony. Only the sensor is Sony's the assembly and software optimization is done by Samsung.

How exactly does the exnos suck?

It doesn't. He's just speaking on things he doesn't know about.

'By your logic, if I like a cotton shirt, I should go and congratulate the sheep' that example gave me a cancer :D

Tech2 once again with the comment of the day. +1. The idiot realizes he's wrong & changes the subject to processors instead. What a tool.

Without sony's sensor there is no camera. So you're wrong.

they could simply use another sensor.

58. g2a5b0e unregistered

Exactly. Just like they did with the S5. The sensor is only the beginning. It's the optimizations done with the software that make it their own. Otherwise, all cameras using the same hardware would all be the same & we all know that's not the case.

Yeah because the camera is built on nothing but the sensor right? Sony has always been criticized for their subpar smartphone cameras, deal with it.

its look like apple ads..lol

Actually it's the other way around.

Say what? Since when do Apple ads look like Samsung ads? That's just piss-poor trolling. Samsung needs to use Apple in the majority of their commercials for anyone to notice them. Apple doesn't feature Samsung in theirs because you don't acknowledge distant second and falling when you are on top of the heap.

Damn Napalm, that's deep. I feel it's true too, Samung does use the Coke vs Pepsi stuff against Apple a lot.

Trolls simply refuse to see reality, for the sake of continued foolishness bro. Why ever bother? I've placed him on my "waste of time to reply to list".

Samsung sold 350M smartphones last year and Apple sold 150M. Who was in distant second? Samsung has been selling large phones since 2010, who was in distant second? Samsung doesn't use Apple in all their commercials. How come at every Apple product release, Apple has to take lame untrue shots at Android and Windows? Hmmm Who needs who for attention? If Samsung didn't product most of Apple chipsets, Apple would never sell even 100M phones in a year. There is only one chip make that produces more semi-conductors than Samsung, that's Intel. Both of whom which APple needs to succeed. I would say a company that cant even make their own shyte is in a distant 2nd.

350 million sold is as bad as the whole marketshare metric: These are companies, not people, and the bottom line is profit, and in that, Samsung is a fading second. As for Apple's custom silicon (As opposed to Samsung's stock ARM designs), apparently only one company can design something so powerful yet so power frugal, but at least one other company besides Samsung can make it, as proven by TSMC fabbing the majority of A8 SoC's. As fr making their own stuff, Intel, Qualcomm, and Nvidia don't fab all of their own silicon.

Nice ads .. Samsung is champion when it comes to Note line .. However; Samsung please optimize Touchwiz for performance .. this is the only big thing that stops me from buying !!
