Samsung Galaxy S III T.V. ad debuts

Samsung Galaxy S III T.V. ad debuts
The international version of the Samsung Galaxy S III will launch at the end of this month and Samsung has released a 60 second television ad for the highly anticipated device. Instead of showing off the specs of the phone, such as the quad-core 1.4GHz exynos processor or the 4.8 inch HD Super AMOLED display or even Android 4.0, the ad aims for a more emotional connection to the viewer.

Instead, we are told that the Samsung Galaxy S III understands you, shares what is in your heart, keeps track of loved ones, recognizes who you are, follows your every move, sees you best side, connects with nature and waits until you're asleep. All of this touchy-feely stuff doesn't really tell you much about the phone which is why we have always been fans of ads that show off the features of a handset.

This commercial will most likely not be seen in the States. Not only isn't the phone expected to launch in the U.S. until June, but the ad uses the international version of the phone and the European spelling of the word "recognises" using the "s" instead of the "z". Perhaps the ad aimed at U.S. audiences will focus more on the phone instead of trying to tug on viewers' heart strings.

If that's what they really mean by that, then that's not only just juvenile but plain dumb for a large campaign for what should be a flagship phone. And if that's not what they mean by that, then it's just a pretty stupid tagline...who else would it be designed for, and what does that even say about the phone anyway?

I dunno, I think it's an excellent ad. People will pay attention to ads that actually seem pleasant to watch sometimes.

I agree, it would have been nice to see a little bit more of the GS3 phone though.

It's a great ad. The music blends with the visuals. I know it doesnt say much about the specs but it does exactly what an ad is meant for- its catchy, and makes me want the phone. I say this ad is a success

After watching this video I have started to think that not only some people (or maybe many people), but Samsung also realizes that Galaxy S III doesn't have successful design. YouTube video: P.S. I don't like Apple as a company, so, please don't say that I'm fan or something... This video just talks about the fact.

The white one looks quite sexy actually. I don't like its glossy back though but should be fine with a nice case.

I agree with you, it isn't very bad, but I also can't call it successful design. :)

yes we can't call it successful design. samsung should have done better because it is a flagship product. Now I 'LIKE' s3 but if it had better design, I would have 'LOVED' it.

And "waits til you are asleep"...draw your own conclusions there.

So basically, s3 is a stalker?

Stalker, creep, who knows what. The wording is just weird and creepy and a very poor choice on the part of the ad agency.

And while you are sleeping Samsung Galaxy S III will find your iPhone and kill it. LOL! :D :D :D

Thanks for explanation, but I guess that most (who are interested) already know that, so...

Remember, if Apple can sell inferior products with great marketing, Samsung can, too. Or, is that copying?

Except this is as horrible marketing as can get. Completely gimmicky, fairly irrelevant, and even just plain weird.

Well.. heartstring pulling or not, they mentioned a lot of the major features. I guess its just the beginning of a series to wet people's appetites for more. I assume we will see more shortly that explain the statements made in this intro commercial.

Pretty horrible ad campaign. What is all this "nature", "emotion", "human" stuff in relation to a piece of technology? It's just silly and pretty much idiotic. And then there's all the "it knows you", "it tracks your loved ones", "it waits til you are asleep"...seriously?! Who came up with this? The phone is your stalker that knows you and tracks you and your loved ones and waiting to do something when you are sleeping? Talk about someone in the marketing department really overlooking the obvious weird connections there. Sad.
