Samsung's ad blitz continues, shows off instant picture sharing on the GS3

Samsung's ad blitz continues, shows off instant picture sharing on the GS3
Now that Samsung’s Galaxy S III has launched is almost every major market (even a few Verizon units have shipped early, and “stragglers” will get theirs in the next four days), the ad campaign is in full swing. With Samsung sponsoring the Summer Games explicitly to help promote their latest flagship, you can bet that we’ll be seeing a lot more ads coming down the turnpike.

The newest one is a 30 second TV spot, and it shows off how useful the Share Shot instant photo sharing can be between Galaxy S III devices. Of course we could point out that this feature would be even more useful if it worked with other Android devices (or multiple OSes!) but unfortunately Samsung seems to have doubled down on making proprietary features on the latest Galaxy S model.

Regardless, the ad below makes its case good-naturedly, and certainly we can all agree that instant social image sharing is the bee’s knees in many situations.

Enjoy:

Great ad, useless feature. I've yet to find the time and place to use it. And the fact it's only for Samsung devices doesn't help either.

i used the instant call feature a few times on my father's s3. I thought it was pretty neat. Same goes for tap to top

The iPhone is definitely winning. It seems to be the phone everyone can't stop thinking/talking about......even in completely unrelated articles.

If the iPhone was winning Apple wouldn't care about banning other products. Plain and simple.

Yeah, even less functions too. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a hater, but I just can't stand it when people say one thing is smoother than another without considering all it's functions and processors.

great feature, but until everyone has the same feature it will just be like the 3D feature that never took off.
