Samsung gives you reasons to upgrade to the Galaxy S5... from the Galaxy S III

Samsung gives you reasons to upgrade to the Galaxy S5... from the Galaxy S III
Samsung recently launched a few new promo videos, all trying to make you upgrade your phone to its Galaxy S5 flagship. You’ll notice that Samsung is specifically targeting users who have an old Galaxy S III, many of whom are likely to be close to the end of their two-year contract with their respective carriers.

There are three videos to watch, and they’re a tad on the boring side - at least for us, because we already know everything there is to know about the S5. Samsung is being a bit of a Captain Obvious with lines like “the Galaxy S5 is a step up from the Galaxy S III.” Anyway, the videos do manage to be informative, providing details about the new and longer-lasting battery of the S5, its faster processor, better camera, better screen, and its dust- and water-resistant body.

All three promo videos are embedded below. Before (or after) watching them, you should check out our Samsung Galaxy S5 review for an in-depth look at the new smartphone.

Earlier this week, Samsung also advised iPhone users to upgrade to the Galaxy S5, calling them “wall huggers” and stating that its flagship handset offers a superior battery.
