This morning in Brazil, Motorola unveiled the Moto G. At the end of the presentation, the company gave us a look at the device’s first commercial. The layout of the spot seems to highlight the power of this compact, affordable device. Shown are the replaceable backs, Google services integration, guaranteed update to Android 4.4 KitKat (since it ships with 4.3), “all-day” battery life, a quad-core processor, and a 4.5-inch display that Motorola touts as “the sharpest in its class.” Hit the break to view the commercial. » Read the rest
The first television commercial for the Samsung Galaxy Round has officially been released. The Galaxy Round, if you remember, is the world’s first curved smartphone that will only be available in South Korea, at least at first. It’s basically a curved Galaxy Note 3 but with a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED that curves at the sides. The commercial plays on the rounded nature of the phone, showing a hand holding multiple rounded objects before showing the same hand using the Galaxy Round.

Motorola is going hard with their new new Moto X “Lazy Phone” campaign. There’s a new, fifth ad available that shows how a competing phone could leave you stranded up a creek. The commercial showcases Moto X’s Touchless Control features. That’s all we’re going to say about the commercial, but it’s absolutely worth a watch. Check it out, embedded after the break.
Moto X’s most interesting feature is probably it’s extreme customizability. Motorola’s new “Lazy Phone” commercial shows off just that. Keeping with the theme of highlighting flaws of other phones, the new commercial shows how some phones are over-accessorized by their owners. “Isn’t it about time you had a phone that you could truly design yourself?” the ad asks. “With 2,000 ways to customize, Moto X matches your unique style from the beginning.”
It’s a good point in a pretty successful marketing campaign so far. You can check out the full commercial after the break.
Motorola has launched their first big ad campaign for their Moto X, and it goes under the name “Lazy Phone.” To kick it off, there are three new television commercials that showcase the X’s innovative features, including Touchless Control, Quick Capture, and Active Notifications. Comedian TJ Miller is the star of the spots, which seem very Samsung-ish, to me.

However, once he gets a Galaxy S 4 in his hands, his problems are fixed and his life is perfect – complete with dancing burglars and sheep. To finish it all off, he takes a bite out of the apple. and the sheep is pleased.

HTC, always coming up with clever ways to market their product, released two new commercials for the HTC One today. Unlike previous commercials, these put the BlinkFeed feature of HTC’s newest flagship device front and center. For those who don’t know, BlinkFeed (introduced in Sense 5) is integrated into the One’s homescreen and combines various social media services and news sites into one customizable, image-centric feed. The idea is that by utilizing BlinkFeed, users don’t have to “dig like gophers” to find status updates and news articles. Hit the break both commercials.
OK, so the Samsung Galaxy S 4 smartphone is finally available in stores now and as part of its massive marketing blitz, the Korean giant has started the next phase of its “Next Big Thing Is Here” advertising campaign— naturally showing off just a little of what the impressive smartphone can do and the iPhone 5 well… can’t do. Taking place at a graduation pool party, a few of the party goers take the opportunity to impress others by showcasing things like the various photography modes, Air View and Air Gestures when your hands are full or messy from eating savory ribs,
NFC S Beam to share photos with friends in an instant, and using the smartphone as a TV remote. Of course showing off that the phone is indestructible is not part of the ad, but hey— one step at a time, right?
Google’s recently stepped up their advertising game to try to draw some attention to their Nexus lineup, and the latest really hits home. The small story focuses on a couple trying to decide how to handle having their first child, and it goes through the beginning expecting stages all the way through the couple trying to decide on a name. The video of course showcases the cool things the Nexus 10 can do in a relateable way, like multi-user support for both parents’ schedule, and Google Now for making that tough naming decision.
It’s definitely a memorable commercial that’s bound to drum up a bit of interest for the 10-inch tab. Hopefully we’ll see a few more showcasing the other features Google stuffed into their devices. Hit the break below to check out the commercial for yourself. » Read the rest
