Samsung posts extended version of Galaxy S III ad

Samsung posts extended version of Galaxy S III ad
Are you still waiting for a chance to get your Galaxy S III? You aren’t alone, since Samsung appears to have underestimated demand on the device by a couple million units, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t going to continue to ratchet up the marketing campaign to try and drive even more demand. To further that end, Samsung has released an extended two-minute cut of their “Designed for Humans” ad campaign, which we’ve posted below for your viewing pleasure.

The first half of the ad consists of footage that will familiar to anyone who has watched past Galaxy S III commercials, but we were surprised at how much new footage they managed to pack into the latter portion of the video. At this point we’re not sure how much more hyped consumers can get over the device, but watching Samsung’s panoply of touching moments driven by smartphones is certainly more entertaining than fidgeting anxiously as you await news of shipping dates slipping back from your carrier.

It works on the SGS3 as well (Korean version). However, it means that there are 2 chips in the phone, the exynos chip and the lte chip. This makes the phone a bit thicker, and less energy efficient.

Does it know if you've been bad or good? I hope whoever gets this phone is good for goodness sake! It does look like a cool phone though

Who blames Big Red? It's the best carrier on the planet and has always put top priority on customer satisfaction. Damn it.

I love the phone, but the ad is creepy for me :/ And I don't remember, when phones weren't made for humans :p

Made for humans means better human interaction and intuitiveness, you want an example of a phone that's "Not made for humans"? iPhone, tiny screen, horrible ergonomics, made of wrong materials, no ease of access, poor integration of social media (compared to vanilla Android and of cause Touchwiz Android), and no human interaction (other than Siri).

I hate the feeling that I get when my upgrade is coming up and I can't figure out which OS to go with. One day I want simple with iPhone. Next day it's like wow Windows Phone 8 looks really cool I want that. Next day I see Samsung Galaxy S III in all its sexy glory and I'm like maybe I should try Android. . . such a crisis any suggestions? (please no fanboyism)

I'm the same way. I've had Android for over two years and been fairly happy but every time I pick up an iOS device I want one. Although, to be fair I was playing with a friend's RAZR MAXX the other day and I wanted that one too. (I have a Droid X) I don't really have any desire to get a WP though, played with one of those and it felt awkward.

Android and WP8 are both really cool, I would love either one. I recommend Android, as the newest phones with it recently are very powerful and excel all others in terms of hardware, fluidity, customization and very useful features that nothing else has. WP8 is just awesome, and I like a lot of the useful features. If you want to support that, go for it. I don't recommend the iPhone though, it's too simple and there are so many things about it that destroy freedom and waste a lot of time and require a lot more effort.

I agree with you on the iPhone. It has nice apps but I find myself bored with them. I'm a pretty techy dude so it feels like a waste owning an iPhone cuz a five year old could use one. So It is down to Android or Windows Phone. Windows Phone I think finds the balance between the two that I like in some ways. But as soon as I lean towards that some new Android phone catches my eye. It will be a tough decision. It will probably come down to going in the store and looking at the best devices on each OS and choosing one there. Thanks for the help though

According to me now you can go with Android. If you thinking about windows then You have to wait two more years s Bcs they already setup the foundation just need to built the tower and the result is Windows phone 8. By the way it is the next big Challange for Android and IOS.

Easy! When you decide to buy your next device. Let say you go to Car Dealer to purchase a TRUCK. Your goal is that you wants it hall stuff around all day long. And let say you have $30K small pickup = Toyota Takoma,=iPhone Large pickup= 3/4 ton Chevy or Ford-I preferred =Android ICS unlimited access to hall loads. My picked is Android-cuz it gives so much more freedom of access and share.

Great ad, It captures human emotions that we "humans" can relate to while showing off the features of the Samsung Galaxy S III being used in real life situations.

That's some great advertising there!!! The more tugging at emotions, the more successful an advertising campaign. Well done.

Samsung has already the best hardware, now they are focusing in software area, what they have in s3 is a proof that they can manage also. This makes samsung distinct from other companies. They should now give extra effort in marketing, this way people know more about what are their products especially in mobile area.
