Samsung Releases Galaxy S5 Ad without Bashing their Competitors

April 9, 2014 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Now here’s a promo done right. No bashing Apple, or Amazon with their tablets like they are doing with the Galaxy TabPRO commercials. Instead, they just show off the device, and that’s about it. Which at this point, that’s about all Samsung needs to do really. They’ve built such a large fan base of people that are going to buy their next flagship regardless of what it looks like, how much of an upgrade it is, or if they even market the thing. But Samsung, being Samsung is going to pour money into marketing, which we’re going to see a huge marketing blitz in the next few weeks since the device launches this Friday in 150 countries.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 was announced at Unpacked in February, it has a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED 1080p display – which is said to have the best display ever tested – along with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot that supports up to 128GB, 2800mAh battery inside, and Android 4.4.2 along with Samsung’s latest version of their custom overlay – which they refuse to call Touchwiz now. The Samsung Galaxy S5 is launching in over 150 countries on April 11th, which is this Friday. That also includes T-Mobile, Sprint, AT&T, and Verizon. But the Galaxy S5 isn’t the only phone launching on April 11th, the HTC One M8 is launching on other carriers as well on April 11th. But I have a feeling it’ll be outshined but the Galaxy S5.

You can check out the Galaxy S5 promo video down below, and let us know what you think about it in the comments below as well. I think it’s a really nicely done promo. Not too long either, and gets straight to the point. So good job Samsung. Your competitors should hire your ad agency.
