Samsung shows off how great their Galaxy S II line really is

Right before our near future of shopping madness, you can bet we'll be seeing some great new commercials. Samsung just dropped one showing off how waiting for the "right" phone to get here just doesn't make sense when the Galaxy S II is already here. It's quite comical, but even more amusing is the fact that this could very well happen.

This clip shows some Apple fans waiting in line to purchase what seems to be the iPhone 4S. But as they wait, they notice something. One guy in line says, "Whoa, whats she got there", of course referring to the Samsung Galaxy S II. Galaxy S II owners then show off the device's bigger more vibrant screen, 4G capabilities, and simply its overall amazingness. Yeah, this is certainly a bias commercial, but then again all commercials are.

It makes me wonder if we could compare this to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. We are all waiting for this amazing device to finally become available, but are we really just waiting on Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)? Once the current Galaxy S II smartphones are finally updated to ICS, could they still triumph over the Galaxy Nexus? Benchmarks of the Galaxy Nexus show that it just barely beats the GSII; only when they both sport ICS will we finally realize the next big thing was just Android 4.0.

There will surely be more commercials like this as we near the Christmas holiday shopping season. Hopefully they are all this clever.

    Great commercial. I don’t think it will win over an iPhone fanboys/girls but at least it will get them “thinking” =p

    iSheeps will always be iSheeps but at least this time Samsung can make them also look stupid because in this point in time nothing beats a droid.

    I would have gotten a Galaxy S II, but I’m on Verizon…..which didn’t get it….so I’m left in the excruciating Galaxy Nexus limbo Verizon has placed us all in. Now I must go beat my head against a wall.

    People are waiting because the Galaxy S2 isn’t on Verizon and the Nexus Prime is only on Verizon.

    It’s better standing in line waiting for Iphone than waiting for Samsung to get their butt on updating all their devices to the latest Android.

    Galaxy Nexus (Samsung phone but supported directly by Google)is the way to go.

    This commercial is awesome. I couldn’t stop laughing at all those iTards. I’m happy with the performance of my skyrocket but the battery life is terrible.
