Samsung’s latest commercial for it’s Galaxy S II Android smartphone cleverly shows just how thin it is. The commercial shows a rather irate girlfriend slamming the door on her significant other after a tiff. The BF takes a picture of himself looking squashed and then slides it under the door jam with a funny quip. Humor is always the direct line to a woman’s heart and a smile emerges.
You gotta admit, it’s a clever way to show how thin the Galaxy S II really is. And what’s telling is that Samsung didn’t appear to cheat on the door jam clearance, either, as there’s barely any. Which underscores what we said last month in our hands on, that this phone is the slimmest phone ever. And in spite of that, it’s packed with other great features.
In addition to slimness, the Galaxy S II has a 4.3″ Super AMOLED touchscreen, 1GHz dual-core processor, and dual cameras including an 8MP rear facing. It runs Android OS 2.3 Gingerbread fresh out of the box with a gesture based overlay of TouchWiz 4.0. It’ll support 1080p full HD video, and according to it’s benchmarks, it’s not only the slimmest phone out there, but also one of the fastest. And it looks to launch on several carriers, including Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T, so no matter your preference, you can slide it under your door as well.
