    The jokes were so stupid and not funny, and it was pretty embarrassing

    The phone itself?...AMAZING...I think its the best phone so far!
    So many features, its no longer a basic phone...its the phone of the future

    They were making fun of themselves the entire time what with people being multiple characters and recognizing just how ridiculous the situations were. I thought it was sort of clever. Much better than the strangely morose videos played during last year's S3 event.

    Corny marketing.

    I thought it was weird.

    But I'm sure it won't hurt sales of the Galaxy S4.

    I was pretty entertained by it.. Then again, I live in NYC and am used to broadway show type productions.. I liked it better then just it being some normal little reveal. That was the first time I ever watched a presser and was entertained by the people talking.

    Wow, seriously? Stupid? Embarrassing? Weird? Did you see the same event I did? I think it was very well put together, and it was a fitting presentation considering the location. Compare it to the stodgy and boring presentations done by the beatnik Steve Jobs in his boring black turtleneck, or even that most recent one done by Blackberry? When you think about it, in its own unique way, it illustrated each and every feature in the way that you would most likely use it. Besides, it was funny, and that boy can dance!

    It was incredibly cheesy and cringe worthy at times, but overall I liked it. As I said in another thread, it was great at showing and demonstrating the features in real life settings. No one has ever done that before, so you have give Samsung props on that. Maybe next year they should tone it down a bit, or hire a better director and writer.

    I watched it at a friends place (he recorded it), I thought it was entertaining. Something different at least.

    It was filled with cheese but it was also effective considering the venue. Personally, I thought the whole event was way too extravagant and boisterous for a phone launch. Perhaps that's the image Samsung wants to convey as far as their brand is concerned.

    I watched some of the recorded event this morning. The parts that I did watch I found somewhat boring. I was more interested in hearing the details on hardware though. The other stuff was filler to me and I skipped through most of it.

    Boring presentations by Steve Jobs? He's the reason why the launch of big tech products from other companies have their own dedicated events! I guess you've never seen the launch of the iPod and/or iPhone. Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge Android fan - but I think Apple does a much better job with their product launch events than Samsung.

    The audience was the worst part. I don't think the crowd knew how to laugh or applaud. I think that added to the awkwardness a lot. That said, the jokes were corny and the scenarios were fake, as admitted by the host in some sort of attempt to be clever. That said, big event, prime seats, get into it a little. I turned it off after all the specs and new features were announced. lol

    I think it was a little odd yes, but considering the venue it was pretty fitting.

    Some of the situations may have been over exaggerated but i think it was a good way to show off the phone.

    I found the event boring and cheesy. I'm a fan of Broadway, plays and musicals and I didn't think that what they did with the venue added anything to explaining or detailing the phone. Lots of new features but the same old boring form and plastic. Up to now I was getting excited about moving up from my S3, but after last night - not so much.

    It was so incredibly cheesy and corny.. It was hard to watch.. I was pretty much cringing the whole time. Fell sorry for the "actors" on stage.

    The actors were getting paid so I don't feel sorry for them. It's what they do.

    You think so? Because not all Broadway-style shows are corny?

    They were paid to act how they were told to act, that's what actors do. Also who wouldn't wanna hire an actor that was employed by Samsung? I'm pretty sure having this on a resume is going to open doors, not close them.

    It was definitely different. I liked it though. I felt like they knew they couldn't do a "serious" comedic presentation so they just went totally over the top to make it intentionally wonky. It was a nice change from just listing specs and product features with demos that are equally corny as what samsung did, but are trying to be serious (like the "first facetime call" from the iPhone 4 presentation, or a presenter checking their email or sending messages)
