The Samsung Galaxy S7 series was released five months ago, and enough time has passed since the duo debuted on the market for Samsung to launch a new flagship phone as part of the Galaxy Note lineup. Nevertheless, despite the fact that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is the new hot item in town, the South Korean tech giant continues to promote its latest “Galaxy S” series and recently launched a new 30-seconds TV commercial starring Danny Glover. The video is called “Timer”, and its purpose is to inform prospective customers of the Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge’s battery life.
Not to be confused with the previous Samsung TV ad starring Danny Glover called “Time”, the new video entitled “Timer” entertains the idea that the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge can hold enough battery juice to keep users busy for prolonged periods of time (over 12 hours judging by the hints in the video). This is unlike the first ad featuring Danny Glover, which revolved more around the smartphones’ wireless charging capabilities, and how this feature can save you time. The new commercial is set up around the ticking bomb cliché we’ve seen in action movies numerous times before – including Lethal Weapon starring Danny Glover – but unlike in the movies, the bomb is set to go off after 12 hours, which gives Danny Glover enough time to forget about defusing the bomb, and instead play Android games, take selfies, conduct phone calls, and even order a pizza, all from his Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. The commercial is concluded with a statement claiming that the Samsung Galaxy S7 series has the longest lasting battery in the Galaxy family of smartphones.
As a quick reminder for readers who may be wondering, the Samsung Galaxy S7 is equipped with a 3,000 mAh battery rated by the manufacturer at up to 22 hours of talk time (3G), whereas the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge relies on a larger 3,600 mAh battery for up to 27 hours of talk time (also 3G). Combined with built-in wireless charging and Fast Charging technologies, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge have become two of the most attractive Android devices of the year.
