Watch three new commercials for the Samsung Galaxy A (2016) series

Watch three new commercials for the Samsung Galaxy A (2016) series
The Samsung Galaxy A (2016) handsets were introduced in December. The Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016), Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) and Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016) launched just a month later. Yesterday, Samsung released a series of three new commercials for the mid-rangers with each one focusing on a particular feature of the phones.

The ads aren't what we would call informative. The first one is about the design of the phones, specifically the metal and glass build of the trio. The second ad basically tells us that the three handsets each carry a rear camera. Shocking! What might have been more important for consumers to know is that all three models feature a 13MP rear-facing camera with an aperture of f/1.9 and OIS. And the third ad lets you know that all three Galaxy A (2016) models support Samsung Pay.

The Samsung Galaxy A (2016) series is available in markets like China and India. The phone is not offered for sale in the U.S., which means that you won't find these commercials on U.S. television.

Not as good as Apple's cookie monster's ad.

Owned the A5 2016, while the SoC is weak for the price, it excels in other areas (excellent build quality, great camera, great battery life, great screen, etc). Proves that specs on paper is only half of the story.

Did you have Snapdragon or Exynos-variant. Cause I have one with Exynos and it runs very smoothly without any problems. Even quite heavy games (Fifa 16, GT Racing 2, Blitz Brigade etc.) are completely playable.

Exynos, I'm not saying it's not enough for regular use and some gaming, I'm just saying it's weak in comparison to other phones in the price range.

That "A for you" in the end is actually kind of annoying. The rest of the commercial is fine thought.

There is a reason behind that. "A for you" it's all marketing...
