As you can see above, Samsung have finally released the first advert for the Galaxy Note in the U.S. (which also happened to be their first Super Bowl advert).
*sighs* If there was one word to describe Samsung Mobile right now, “Shameless” is the word I would pick.
“It’s got a Pen!!”, yeah and so does almost every Pocket PC from the early 00s (I could mention the Apple Newton if you want to go further back). I mean, what makes you think I should even take the device seriously when you’re flaunting a stylus around like it’s supposed to be the next big thing.
Anyway, the thing which irks me the most about all this is Samsung claiming to offer “Freedom” to consumers from the alleged tyranny of the iPhone with a device which just isn’t practical for everyday use. This ad definitely doesn’t do the South Korea-based corporation any favours in their battle to be recognised as the top Smartphone manufacturer in the world.
Apple-bashing aside, this advert is simply awful with Samsung trying to mix-and-match popular trends from over the past decade as well as butchering a song which could be labelled a “classic”, to some.
I wouldn’t even recommend buying a Samsung device which isn’t endorsed by Google (Nexus) to be honest, as there’s no telling when they’ll just end support for it. The Galaxy Note might not even see another OS upgrade past Ice Cream Sandwich, even though it is probably capable of running the next few versions of Android.
