WATCH: New A$AP Rocky Featured in New Samsung Ad

Today, Samsung unveiled its latest ad with hip hop artist, model and fashion designer A$AP Rocky. The ad is the second in the series which follows celebrities as they debate their big decision – which big-screen phone best fits their life. The first ad in the series featuring Chrissy Teigen was released on August 14th.

In the new TV spot, A$AP Rocky debates which smartphone best suits his personality and lifestyle – the Galaxy S6 edge+ or Galaxy Note5. A$AP Rocky has a lot on his mind these days  – an upcoming tour with Tyler The Creator and a recently launched design collective AWGE – and he needs a phone that can keep up with his life. All of these big moments are leading up to one big decision – will A$AP Rocky live on the edge with the new Galaxy S6 edge+ or take note with the Galaxy Note5?

In the end, he ultimately decides that the new Galaxy Note5 best fits his life – a phone engineered to help people get more done faster. The ad will aired during this past weekend’s 2015 MTV Video Music Awards as part of Samsung’s presence at the award show.

The Android interface lets you download apps that let you post your images directly to Facebook, Instagram or any other app.  The NX can also use any of the NX series interchangeable lenses

 

Sony QX100 – $500

The camera on everyone’s list is Sony’s Cyber-shot QX series. The Lens contains all of the camera parts and connects to your Android or iOS smartphone or tablet to act as the display. The camera takes great pics and videos as it utilizes much of the same imaging tech as the Cyber Shot RX 100.
