Samsung flies the Galaxy S4 in with a helicopter to launch it in Romania
Samsung is bringing it all out with the Galaxy S4. The Korean company has officially launched the device with pompous events in New York and London, but it continues to ramp up the hype in other countries.

It all started with New York’s Radio City Hall where Samsung staged a theatrical performance hiring a whole orchestra for the Galaxy S4 unveiling. Then in the United Kingdom, Samsung arranged a concert to go along the S4 launch. And now of all places in Romania Samsung continues with its creative approach this time flying the S4 in a helicopter.

Out of it, two men clad in black suits and wearing glasses in a typical Bond-style take out a suitcase to present two Galaxy S4 models to the press.

Weird? Yes. Cool? You bet. It seems that just like with earlier devices, Samsung will do all it takes to advertize and push its new flagship to customers, don’t you think?

I do not buy phones base on review. do you? if you nott, then why care abt the review? PA always have super good and biased review on ALL samsung products anyway.

Up to you, dude.. But when you say that professional tech sites are biased because their in-depth comparisons say that X is, overall, better the Y(the brand you're supporting), you better come with some valid evidence to prove your claims! Otherwise, you're being the biased one. =] They might have spent more money on marketing than R&D but how does this change the fact that they still spend more money than any other smartphone oems?! FLAWED LOGIC here! I'm not offended at all, I'm just pointing the BS out of your comments, TROLL!

go therewww.google.com and enter 'samsung copycat' as you wish. you can then read off unlimited reports and articles of samsung violating/copying other company's innovation.. I hope samsung can actually make something ontheir own. not just spend money on marketing and copying other ppl's idea and call it Research and Development.

I am proud to be from Romania especially since we have one of the best internet speeds in the world, 4G and one of the best data plans ,contracts and pre pay sim cards.

"I am proud to be from Romania especially since we have one of the best internet speeds in the world..." It is good that you are proud of your country (I don't have anything against you or your country). And yes, I agree that situation with internet speed in Romania is good, but it is not enough good to say that Romania have one of the best internet speeds in the world because it is not true! Go and check Download and Upload statistics here: http://www.netindex.com Talking about Download statistics by world countries, Romania is not even in Top 10 (13 place). Talking about Download statistics by world cities, Constanta (Romanian city) is enven not in Top 5 (9 place). Talking about Upload statistics by world countries, Romania is not even in Top 5 (8 place). Talking about Upload statistics by world cities, Constanta (Romanian city) is in 5 place. P.S. I really don't have anything against your country, I'm just talking about internet statistics. Peace! :)

I'm from Romania and i apreciate that you didn't offend my f**king country even if you will have enought reasons. Yes, he exaggerated with "the best internet speed". You will be surprised to see that samsung prepared such a big show on the tallest building in Bucharest for Romania. But here the smarphones sells like hot bread. You can see someone with a brand-new s4 and he has lots of bills that wait to be paied.Or s4 and f**king 5 dollar clothes on him. Ooooo yeah please,please world understand that gipsies are not Romanians they are gipsies(indians or other asian origins).
