Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 Teaser Reveals Everyone’s Worst Nightmare
The new Samsung Galaxy Note 9 teaser reveals the impact of a dying battery
We’ve already written about how Samsung’s Galaxy S9 stacks up to Apple’s iPhone X but Samsung is now going for Apple’s throat.
The company recently released a thirty second teaser video showcasing everyone’s worst nightmare when it comes to their smartphone - a dying battery.
The spot opens up with someone on their phone (presumably an iPhone), waiting for their ride share to take them to meet up with a friend. The first low battery warning strikes, showing that the phone only has 5% to go until it dies. The spot then shows exactly what any one of us would do in a similar situation. Darken the screen so low that you can barely see it and kill off all the open apps running in the background - only to find that the phone is still cringing for its life at 4%.
The unknown person then throws off the Wi-fi and GPS and should have pulled the smartphone into airplane mode, if they really knew what they were doing. Dropping to 2% mere seconds later, they frantically pull out an external battery charger, which they forgot to charge as well.
Near the end, the spot shows a dead battery and askes the question “Battery can’t keep up?” before promising change come August 9th, when Samsung’s next Unpacked event takes place and the new phone will be unveiled.
Many of us can relate to this ad because it happens to the best of us every once in a while, if not every day. Even though there are thousands of phone cases with built-in batteries available, your phone will inevitably die at some point – usually at the most inconvenient time.
But can we really trust Samsung’s smartphone batteries? It wasn’t too long ago that there were multiple instances of its Galaxy Note 7 exploding – forcing the company to recall the device not once but twice.
And if the possibility of your phone exploding in your face doesn’t already make you feel uneasy, the phone is reported to be one of most expensive phones Samsung has ever released with a price tag in the $1,200-$1,500 range. We guess this makes sense, given that it’s looking to continue the competition with Apple’s iPhone X, which sells for around the same price.
