Samsung Galaxy S III first ad is out: "designed for humans," not aliens

Samsung Galaxy S III first ad is out:
The first ad for the Samsung Galaxy S III is now out and it shows the best of what you can use the handset for, and underscores its human element. The commercial shows little of the Galaxy S III, and instead focuses on a lot of gorgeous moments and landscapes you could be able to better enjoy with Samsung’s newest phone.

The unique features of the SGS III are underlined once again - it "recognizes who you are," (face detection) "follows your every move, sees your best side" (camera) and finally, "waits till you're asleep." (front facing camera tracks whether your eyes are on the screen and if not turns it off)

We for once think that’s excellent advertizing, with no jabs at the competition, but we wish we saw more of the actual handset. And of course, it feels just a bit weird reading that the handset is “designed for humans,” not just “people” but let’s not be picky and just enjoy the ad below. How do you like it?

Just disappointed... total failure. And I really thought Samsung could come up with something amazing despite its past.

I don't think its a total failure but I was expecting more as well. What really sets this apart from the One X line or all the other phones coming out? Hopefully its better than it seems...

Amazing Spec's but, in my opinion they could have done better with the design and camera. I sure want to buy this, and should start saving up money. :-D !!

Hahaha yea. They were going for emotion, but I think they tried too hard and it just comes off weird.

It actually was really weird... Kinda creepy actually. Looks like a decent phone though. Just not the "amazing" phone people were hoping for.

HTC did a way better job than Samsung.. They should take into consideration how the phone should look like, I mean, that's the 1st thing you'd see before you start browsing the phone.. Samsung is still on top of the game.. I just dunno until when.. Specially that Apple & BlackBerry are stirring up w/ something new come last quarter of the year..

why it's saying that "this video is private"?
