Samsung Galaxy S5 takes the Ice Bucket Challenge
posted by Paul.K / Aug 22, 2014, 8:55 AM
The video is nothing flashy – the phone presents itself, talking with its S Voice, then a stream of icy water spills over it from off-screen. The phone notes that it's freezing (ha-ha) and nominates three of its flagship rivals – the iPhone 5S, HTC One (M8), and the Nokia Lumia 930. Obviously, this is an attempt of a tongue-in-cheek jab at the competitors' lack of waterproofing, though we can't say we find it to be in particularly good taste.

16mp is not as good as the 41mp for stills, but the isocell is much faster and can take 4k video. Not to mention take super slow motion videos at up to 240 fps. That's right the 1020 can't do any of those things. The 1020 is slow at capturing pictures. So bring on the challenge.

As much as I'd like to agree they didn't pick the Z2 because it's waterproof, I'm sure it's more because the iPhone is their No.1 non-android competitor, m8 is their No.1 Android competitor and Lumia Whateverwhogivesacrap is their No.1 WP competitor.

Undoubtedly Samsung has the best marketing team. :D Maybe one day they'll realize they should also have best design team.

"The best marketing team" would realize that taking advantage of a popular charity to market your products is really tacky.

IMO looks too much like an ad, they could of handled it better E.g. have their CEO do the challenge with the S5 in his pocket, after the challenge he pulls out his wet S5 and use S-Voice/Google Now to donate to charity using text donate
