New ads for the Samsung Galaxy S5 show off the phone's features
We've always expressed our preference for smartphone ads that show off the features of a phone, instead of an ad that doesn't tell you a single thing abut it. The ads for the OG Apple iPhone, for example, were informative because they had to be. The consumer needed a quick 30 second education on the iPhone's features. On the opposite side, look at the ads for the HTC One (M8) starring Gary Oldman. The spot has a lot of "Blah-blah-blah-blah" in it, but nothing of substance regarding the phone.

Now, Samsung is beginning to run a series of informative ads for the Samsung Galaxy S5 that show how features like the selective focus on the camera works. Or how, with the battery down to 10%, you can make calls for another 24 hours thanks to the Ultra Power Saving Mode. Other ads include one for the 5.1 inch 1080 x 1920 display, and one for the S Health features.

This doesn't mean that Samsung won't be going after Apple again in future ads. But for now, the Korean tech titan wants to show you what its current flagship can do. You can check out the new ads by visiting the video slideshow, below.

Thats a right way to attract customers to focus on the strength of the product instead of just showing a video which hardly hilight the product

This, and the FingerPrint Scanner, are hardly "features" or "strength" at all. And S5 buyers don't even count them in the list.(the FPScanner could be only izombies "pride". LOL) S5 has so many great features, that beat all the rivals to ground.

I am talking about the way of marketing in general bro, not particularly about the features shown in this particular ad... come on, open up your mind
