Can you really survive on a deserted island with only your smartphone? The 16 contestants on Samsung’s interactive, online, live-stream reality series “SOS Island: Survival of the Smartest” have been giving it their best shot – and they’ve got the awesome footage to prove it! Trained by survival expert Les Stroud to compete on a deserted island for two weeks, the adventurers have been performing Herculean tasks and recording their efforts on Samsung GALAXY S4 zoom and GALAXY NX Cameras.
The candidates have come so far already, even if they really had no idea what they’d be in for. Take a look…
Since their audition videos, the 16 adventurists have really embraced not only Stroud’s survival strategies, but the social media savvy to shoot and share all of their experiences using their super devices. The S4 zoom is part advanced still and video camera, and part Android-powered smartphone, allowing them to capture and share clear, close-up, and crisp images and video. And the powerful GALAXY NX is the first interchangeable-lens camera with 3G/4G LTE and wi-fi connectivity.
Which of these contestants do you think will make it to the final eight? Those who do will have to survive sans Stroud, as they’ll be facing survival on their own, while vying for your vote! You can be part of the competition, too, by playing interactive games that affect contestants’ scores, and even have a chance to win prizes yourself.
Visit the SOS Island Social feed to read updates from and interact with the contestants, and catch the live streaming action on http://sos-island.com to vote for your favorite. The grand prize winner will score $100K toward their very own island.
