It's as if Samsung is looking straight into the heart of America with its newest ad for the Galaxy S II, entitled "The Way We're Wired." The ad hits the soft spot in all of us with its chill-inducing analogies of how we all want to be the best, highlighting philanthropists like Martin Luther King, Jr. and superheros like Batman. Have a look:

Kudos, Sammy. I love it.

    Great commercial!

  • Vivek

    Cool video... really chill inducing... And honestly, IT IS the best phone out there..

    still irritated that it won't be available on Verizon. Hoping that the HTC Vigor competes, or beats. I have a Bionic now and it is sort of underwhelming when comparing to the GS2 for me. The pentile screen is terrible imho.

      With a 400X800 screen and a relatively low DPI, I wouldn't be so sure... Battery life also leaves much to be desired...
      I can't think of any better phone though... Certainly not my Atrix... So yeah it could be the best phone out there... Can't wait for the ICS phones, especially the new Samsung Nexus Prime...

    This almost makes me want to buy this phone but i am going to buy the miui phone

    Erm, the buttons on the SII at the end of the commercial are different to mine, that has 4 touch buttons, mine has 2 and one physical button...

    • bryan

      they had to change the buttons for the US because of apples lawsuit

    • Elias

      You probably have the international model. Samsung's US models always had the 4 capacitive buttons.

      Not sure which version I like more. I've always had the 4 buttons at the bottom so I'm quite used to it. I guess I could see Apple getting their panties in a twist over the International Galaxy SII's look but who cares. Does the big rectangle button in the center of the International Galaxy SII act like a D-Pad? Can it be used to navigate and move up/down/left/right in games and such?

        Nope. It's just one fat button to get you home :)

        Oh, and there is one touchbutton on each side of it, which means we get one button less in europe. We have no searchbutton. *sob* ScummVM uses the searchbutton as right mouse button so I can't play.... *sob*

          But if you press and hold the Menu Button, you get the Search Button =) (it act like)

  • Tom

    Ughhhh, I wish they kept the Sprint logo off the front and just had the Samsung at the top. It looks so squeezed and cluttered with Sammy's name at the bottom. Whatever happened to this one?


  • L boogie

    Awesome ad, I'm glad it's finally here and as long as you're not on verizon then, this phone is there for many to enjoy....

    • TareX

      Seriously, with the Nexus Prime weeks away, I don't think anyone should venture for the SGSII...

      • Wam31

        My thought exactly!
        I don't quite understand why someone would buy the Galaxy S II now before any Nexus review.

    had it for one day. the phone part works. but suddenly a lot of gfx using apps looks like crap (16-24bit issue). they haven't fixed the audio - and changed the chip, so no voodoo fix. GPS apparently makes me look away from me, sit in the park and ponder the lake.
