Bloody OnePlus 5 advert. Actually quite good.

Good morning all. I’m a little tired today due to the fact that only around four Swissport staff decided to bother turning up to work at Birmingham Airport in the last month or so. The knock on result is a completely terrible experience and an airport which just …

It’s Friday, here’s an advert

It’s Friday. Friday at last. Last night, whilst randomly looking for a YouTube video (and I’ll be honest, I was trying to find some Leslie Chow clips because I’m a bit bonkers), an advert appeared before the video. You know the sort, it’s one of the many YouTube …

Wait a minute. Did Nationwide just do an ad that makes you think?

I’ve mentioned this a few times before, and I’m guilty of it myself. Over-using my phone. Head down, plodding along the street, engrossed in some meaningless tweet. Someone could walk past me wearing nothing but a pair of socks and I’d probably not notice. My son told me …

Crank it. LG signs up Jason Statham

Here’s a British actor with a stack of style and panache. He looks a lot like me too, which is good. Anyhow, I like a lot of his films, including the “Transporter” series. The first one was probably the best, but by “Transporter 3” we were in a …

Those adverts. A quick comment

A couple of days ago the people responsible for our commenting system enabled a new “revenue” system. Sadly, as I’ve not kept up with all my mail, this was enabled on Coolsmartphone without our approval. It seems to be something they’re doing with multiple sites without them having …

Samsung Galaxy S7 – The adverts

If you saw our live coverage of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge launch then you’ll probably already be aware of this first advert, which features the floor-vibrating soundtrack we heard during the unveiling. It’s a polished production filled with energy.. No actual S7 devices in that, …

HTC One A9 adverts start, and they’re quite good actually.

You’ve read the HTC One A9 review we posted last week and now HTC are cranking up the advertising machine for their shiny, skinny handset. Gone are those … ermm… “interesting” Robert Downey Jr adverts and now we’ve got something very different indeed. Here’s the ad, and see …

Motorola wants to make you think

We just received this rather bizzare email from the Motorola PR team. Here is the first line from the email… Motorola has created a video with comedian Alfie Brown and a member of the public for the #PhonyJob challenge to see how tough a day in the life …

Dear HTC America. What the heck is this?

Now, I’m not going to attack American TV adverts here. They’re weird, yes, but have you seen some of the daytime TV adverts here in the UK? They’re utterly bonkers. If you’ve been lucky enough to travel to the USA and you’ve seen some of the TV commercials …

Hey, what’s your thoughts on the new Android ads?

You’ve seen the iPhone and iPod adverts. They’ve been copied quite heavily by other manufacturers. You’ve seen the Windows Phone ads too, which are currently pushing Cortana quite heavily and showing how it performs up against Siri.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tYZ5gAQMJg8 But, at the moment for me at least, the raft …

OK Google, can you work like the advert please?

You’ve seen those clever “OK Google” adverts on TV. There’s plenty of them and here in Old Blighty but one I spotted last night doesn’t actually work. It’s this one.. We’ve tested this particular scenario on iOS, Android and even the Chrome browser on a PC. The same …

Ikea announce the BookBook

Apple are having a conference on Tuesday, which means a new device is imminent. What this also means is a new set of adverts proclaiming why the new device is the best thing since sliced bread (or the last iPhone at least). The success of the adverts has …

Oppo post possibly the strangest promo video ever

Oppo are big news at the moment their Find 7 and Find 7a are both about to be released into the world, complete with fancy cameras and even fancier camera software. To help promote the Find 7 / 7a they’ve made a video, a 4 minute 52 seconds …

Three’s new advert promotes sharing silly stuff

If you are in the UK you should have seen the now famous pony in the Three advert called “Socks”. This has been visited over 8 million times on YouTube. Then came Mabel, their PAYG Pug dog celebrating the launch of 3-2-1 plan on PAYG over Christmas time. …

New Samsung Galaxy Gear ad seems to ape first iPhone advert

You may not remember the first ever iPhone commercial. After all, it was 6 years ago. It featured scenes of people using various telephones in movies and TV shows. At the end the first ever iPhone is displayed with a catchy strapline. Matthew Panzarino (@panzer), remembers this well …

Have a break, have a Nexus 7

Google, as you’ll hopefully know already, went ahead and called their new version of Android “KitKat” after a rather clever tie-in with the chocolate bar. Now the PR machine is beginning to kick into gear and the companies are dishing out more than just free chocolate bars. Their …

Robert Downey Jr. signs up for HTC

Chaplin, US Marshals, Iron Man and now… HTC adverts. Robert Downey Jr had just signed a two year agreement with the company and there’s a 15 second preview of what you’ll soon be seeing below. http://youtu.be/UpGUV6ZrYFw He’ll be helping to promote and celebrate the impact that HTC have …

Big Things Ahead – HTChange

You may not know it, but HTC actually stands for High Tech Computer… Umm.. Corporation. However, this new video sees the company tweaking the letters to stand for something else. “Here’s To Change” ..it states, as they confidently slap down their huge chopper. The teaser video apparently features …
