Samsung frequently uses celebrities in its smartphone ads, and the company’s latest one for the Galaxy Note II is no different. This time around, the ad features Miami Heat superstar LeBron James. The ad shows us a day in the life of the basketball player, as he uses the Galaxy Note II to exchange messages, take pictures, and send out videos of those tasty dunks.

The video is actually misleading in a way – since LeBron James is basically a giant coming in at 6’8, the Galaxy Note II looks like a normal-sized phone in his hands. Of course, most of us know that the Galaxy Note II comes packing a massive 5.5-inch screen, which in turn makes for a pretty big phone, but you wouldn’t know that by watching the ad below. Can you imagine how tiny something like the Galaxy S III – which still has a pretty large screen, remember – would look if LeBron was showing it off?

In any case, the video doesn’t show off anything we haven’t seen before, and it surprisingly doesn’t focus on many of the Galaxy Note II’s mutlitasking features. The S Pen pops up briefly, but otherwise, you might be tricked into thinking that the Note II is a run of the mill phone. One look at our review of the device and you’ll know that’s not the case, as the Note II truly is an incredible Android handset.

The Samsung Galaxy Note II is nearly here, at least for some consumers. AT&T is already taking pre-orders for the phone and will begin shipping those orders out on November 9, which is just over a week away. Are you picking one up, or is the Galaxy Note II a little big for your tastes regardless of how cool it is?
