Close your eyes and you'd swear that this Samsung Galaxy S6 edge video was for the Apple iPhone
Whenever Apple unveils a new version of the iPhone or iPad, it calls on its SVP of design, Jony Ive, to do the talking on a short video that highlights the new features on the device. Apple also released a similar video when it unveiled the Apple Watch. These are the clips that are usually satirized on comedy shows like Saturday Night Live.

Samsung recently released a video explaining the design and craftsmanship used on the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. From the music in the background to the British accent of the narrator, you could close your eyes, replace the Samsung name with Apple, and think that you were listening to Jony Ive talking about his company's latest release.

Even the copy written for the narrator has that Apple-esque quality. You can imagine phrases like "We master impossible materials," and "We think in curves, manipulating the hardest materials," rolling off the tongue of Jony Ive. Except that in this case we are talking about a Samsung produced ad for the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge.

Check out the video by clicking on the slideshow below. We've also included one of Apple's older videos for comparison reasons.

Kind of a mesh of the gold 5S and gold Apple Watch commercials.

LOL...Samsung wishes that... I still say Moto G does most of what the S6 does for 1/7 of the price. I won't even discuss how much more it does than the iPhone 6.

Boy I can care less about what your little simple minded ass thinks. It's easy to see the direction Samsung has taken its marketing, but a blind ass fanboy like you wouldn't admit it if it punched you in the mouth.

See post 10, and after you respond see it again. In other words, you're dismissed.

What you consider yourself? A tech God or something like that? Read comment 13, close your eyes go to a dark room and keep repeating that you are an Apple's b***ch and a sh*t on the Internet.

That's because they didn't copy, but rather set the standard (again, like with the Note 4). A simple Google search turns up tech review site after tech review site that rates the S6/S6 Edge as the best smartphone available (just as the Note 4 is still the best phablet available).

The ad for the plastic iphone is just an oversell. Apple throws in a few big words for the public and the public throw these big words around as if they undertsand it all. Please call it as it is. iPhone 5 Cheap was just that.,....Cheap (in quality not price)

look at the commercial. Its absolutely modelled (like the S6) after the iphone. Samsung has absolutely no shame.

So PhoneArena thinks now that Apple is the only company that can make a good commercial.
