The LG Ally has what is arguably the best promotional video for an Android device yet. How can you argue against Tony Stark aka Iron Man helping promote your phone? And if that weren’t enough, it does something I’ve been clamoring for companies to do for months now: actually advertise what the phone can do.
Sure, any modern smartphone can do many of the things that are pitched in the action-packed LG Ally commercial, but this takes a creative approach to highlighting how useful the phone can be even in the most ridiculous and completely imaginary situation. If I ever find myself in the middle of a drone fight, I’d like to hope my phone could step up like this.
Meanwhile the Samsung Galaxy S also takes the “this is what we can do” approach in this promo video, but it’s noticeably-less awesome. The Galaxy S will benefit from being a much stronger phone on paper.
