Remember the video Samsung recently rolled out, the one that makes fun of the iPhone’s dreadful battery life and calls iPhone users “wall huggers”?

Well, Samsung rolled out a new video, one that shows how you can go on a 7-day, coast-to-coast road trip and not have to charge your Galaxy S5 once!


Earlier this month, Samsung released a video called “Wall Huggers.” The video makes fun of the fact that iPhone battery life is dreadful and consequently iPhone users spend a lot of time clustered around power outlets, waiting for their mobiles to charge.

You can hear the voiceover saying the following:
“Tethered to the wall, denied the freedom to enjoy even the most basic things, like grabbing a drink, or sharing a laugh with your coworkers, or sitting with someone you know. You’re stuck here, until your battery says so. Don’t be a wall hugger!”

The Wall Huggers video focuses on two Galaxy S5 features:
  1. Ultra Power Saving Mode – feature that shuts down unnecessary apps to drastically minimize battery use.
  2. Removable Battery – take the back cover off and you can replace your drained battery with a fresh one.
A few days ago, Samsung rolled a video called “One Charge Challenge: Coast to Coast”. The video shows how, thanks to Ultra Power Saving Mode, you can go on a 7-day trip from one cost to another, and not have to charge your Galaxy S5 once.

This new video focuses on the same features as the Wall Huggers video:
  1. Ultra Power Saving Mode – 3504 miles driven, 7 days on the road, 150 hours traveled, 86 texts sent, 119 photos taken, 4+ minutes of video, 16+ minutes of talk time, 13 states visited, and 0 charges.
  2. Removable Battery – the video ends with the protagonist changing the drained battery with a new one and and saying “wanna head back?”
