Samsung Galaxy Note makes the stylus count in a brilliant user-created ad

Samsung Galaxy Note makes the stylus count in a brilliant user-created ad
The Samsung Galaxy Note is a unique device - with its 5.3-inch display it cannot go unnoticed, but if you somehow missed the big stylus-equipped phone, here’s the perfect opportunity to know what it’s all about. A fan-made video looking much like professionally shot footage by Samsung is probably the best marketing for the Galaxy Note with its artistic affections.

With music by The Chemical Brothers, the whole video unveils around a robbery - a young man snatches a girl’s bag and tries to run away. Spoilers start here: it all ends up with a chase and the girl drawing a picture of the robber on her Galaxy Note. Next is a tech-savvy police officer who somehow gets the picture on Facebook and finds the man with the bag. It’s not realistic but it’s fun, immersive and dramatic. It also ends up with a curious twist, but we wouldn’t want to reveal the whole thing so why don’t you take a look at it below.

The movie, said to be made by iris and peter, could (and in our opinion should) get Samsung’s attention. Do you think it’s worthit? Let us know below.

Amazing ad - and scary how it shows both the positives and negatives of social networks. Although I think that the scenario shown is applicable to using any smartphone and any of the three top mobile OS's. I don't know that it necessarily shows how the stylus is of any benefit - it would be impossible to draw someone so accurately - taking a picture would be the "shot" I think.....

Man Sprint should definitely get their hands on this beastly screen of a phone. Plus this video was pretty cool, two thumbs up to the creators, Samsung should definitely think about using the elements in this video for some good marketing.

Hey Verizon Wireless, don't you regret not getting this phone now? There's a petition out there from VZW users that require 5,000 signatures. There are nearly 4000 now. This should be a wake up call but the question is, will Verizon wake up? Probably not because they are too stuck on Droid this and Droid that. Droid can kiss my ass.

Feel the same way. Fell in freakin love with this phone when it was announced LAST year at MWC 2011. It took so long to come to the states and now Verizon is going the wrong direction.

In the alternate ending, she was raped and stabbed.

Yeah, the note is next to the Galaxy Nexus and iPhone that's makes me feel this way too. I don't exactly like it, the specs don't suit my need, but I just want to own one to play around with it...

I just moved to the Note from the 4S. The S-Pen was one of the main reasons. I will use it a lot in my new role with my current company. Now as for the video its cool but no way I could sketch that quick.

I'm right there with you. I moved from the 4 to the Note not just out of curiosity but for work purposes. Playing Draw Something in the gaps of my free time has me polishing my sketching skills lol.
