Television ad for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is about a phablet-based relationship

On Friday, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was officially launched in many countries, including the U.S. and Canada. At the same time, Samsung released a television commercial for the latest version of its high-end phablet. The ad is all about watching the Galaxy Note 8, its Live Message feature, and the S Pen digital writing instrument help a burgeoning relationship grow. From the first Live Message sent by a girl to a guy sitting right across from her at a party, we see the two communicating back and forth using their Galaxy Note 8 handsets. As the commercial progresses, we can feel the bond between them growing stronger.

Finally, after a period of time passes, she finally gives in and writes him a Live Message that reads "I think I love you." She is on pins and needles as she awaits the response, and we know that you are too, now that you are emotionally invested in these two characters who seem to prefer communicating with Live Message rather than talking to each other.

We don't want to give away what happens next with this love story, but let's just say that it bodes well for other couples that have just one thing in common, which is the phone that they both use. Who would have thought that a whole relationship could blossom so quickly when two people share the love of a phablet. Maybe the same thing will happen to you!

The Live Message feature allows a Galaxy Note 8 user to create a message or a drawing, convert it to an animated gif, and send it to others via email, social media or text. Send the right Live Message to the right person, and you might find your soul mate! See how this might work for you by tapping on the video at the top of the story.

Even the most loyal, blind member of the flock, would have to admit, that this is total B.S. What was Apple thinking, or what was Apple planning? Battymxyflashmite, whatcha think?

Apple pencils are kinda huge, thats why, they may bring a downsized version which wont need charging but alas it wont happen, Note really is in a niche position.

You guys are funny. When you start knowing everyone in the comment section of a phone site on the internet = getalife Seriously people, get out in the real world and meet real people. Anyway...Note 8 and IPhone are both beasts. You cant go wrong either way. Get what suits your needs best.

Dude my fiancee and I went and seen that Wednesday night and its really good! I really liked it, Chelsie was scared to hell. I thought we were gonna have to leave she was so creeped by it. Seen it in the royal suite so reclining chairs and had me an angry orchard, only way to see a movie nowadays IMO. But yeah I hope you enjoyed it. Cant wait to see part 2.

Oh yeah, that review wasn't biased at all.

So a review from someone who uses and has praised both iPhones and Androids is Bias, yet I'm sure you agree with any high reviews from people who only use iPhones

Right Rampage. When the the 7 Plus came out, I gave it a good review. I really liked it, although it was boring in certain areas. The Note 8 is simply outstanding, I really like it, and that's the plain truth. As far as the iPhone X goes, I won't be buying it, so no review. I will however, speak on its shortcomings (what it lacks), especially for the insane starting and top price for it

But you act like the Note 8 and the S8 don't have any shortcomings. Man gtfo with that. I called it just right, bias.

I honestly don't give a damn what you think, or what you called. I was talking to Rampage, not you. You're the site fool, that none of us take serious...that's it. The Note 8 is outstanding, and I'm glad I opted for it, and I've zero interest in the X. Deal with it, and move the hell on. Oh wait...I'm triggered LMAO!

He never said they don't. They just have fewer shortcomings than other phones. Nothing is perfect.

That's because you're either blind to what darkkmite says between the lines or afraid of him lashing out at you. He knows why I called him out.

No, it's because you're so enraged by anyone thinking any other phone is better than the iPhone that you can't help but jump in.

I'm not sure the Note 8 has the best in class in absolutely all of those categories, but it is pretty damn good. Surprised nobody's tried to compete yet.

Compared to the new iPhones the Note is old technology. Check out A11's performance. It's a Bionic Neural death for the Note.

Good sarcasm.:) BTW we will believe that A11 is powerful, if it could just boot the Note 8.

There are also good indications that Samsung is selling Apple last year's display technology in the iPhone X. The maximum brightness on the iPHone X is similar to what the Galaxy S7 achieves, much, much less than what you can get on the S8 or Note 8. It's clearly Apple who are still stuck on old technology. Though, don't worry, iAnandtech will of course tweak their display tests to favour Apple's displays like they've always done. Just to make iDevice owners believe they're actually paying extra for something other than the painted on logo.

Can't even do several ancient and extremely basic tasks dumb phones were capable of despite all that horse power...

Fantastic, you've got a funny car engine in a VW Beetle with a governor on it. The Note is way more useful and productive.
