Customers lining up for the Samsung Galaxy S6 & edge in Rotterdam are making an Apple-huge line

Customers lining up for the Samsung Galaxy S6 & edge in Rotterdam are making an Apple-huge line
Know what day it is? It's April 10, and the hot-shot Samsung Galaxy S6 & edge are hitting stores in at least 20 countries to a fantastic reception! Samsung watchdogs SamMobile managed to snap a beautiful set of photos showing customers lining up in front of a T-Mobile store in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. 

The sights from the land of tulip fields and grinning backpackers portray an Apple-like level of anticipation, which must be good news to Samsung. The GS6 & edge were quick to gather shoppers' attention, the way really strong products do. Samsung's latest and greatest smartphones happen to be its most attractive handsets to date, and together with their athletic hardware, beautiful screens, and polished user experience, they sure make for an enticing proposition!

While Samsung is starting to win people's hearts again, Apple retail boss Angela Ahrendts is trying to eliminate the proverbial long lines of Cupertino products' launch days (or the A-Watch, at least), as the former Burberry exec seems to think they reveal supply problems. Although Samsung is dealing with limited supplies of the GS6 edge due to the complexity of its curved AMOLED display, it doesn't appear to think people lining up for its products like crazy is bad for business.

Anyway, check out the fine photos below. Are you standing in line for Samsung as you're reading this?

This is a good sign for Samsung !! .. although inconvenience to customers !! Samsung should not forget that next iteration of S line shall also bring lot of new useful features (water resistance, good speakers etc.) like S6 brought UFS2.0, good camera etc. this year .. and with slim and fast Touchwiz .. and the queue will continue .. Otherwise, it will just end up like S5 sale figures !!

Most their consumers wont even know what a SD card or removable battery is, not to mention caring about them

Yup! You are right because iCustomers know very well that what is sd card and they remove battery from their iToy each n every minute to play around ;), 1 gb ram is greater than 3gb, 8mp camera is the latest innovation and the screen which is not even full HD is the technology from the future. Their knowledge level is light years ahead of any other OEMs fans and these points always made me appreciate and applaud ifans

Considering the GDP difference, I think Sammy had to pay way more to the Dutch than to the Chinese last week.

So making up one story based on another story that was retracted. I love the smell of desperation tears in the morning.

That is a store employee...look at the shirts all the employees have on, they are the same. Not to mention her and the guy are standing behind the ribbon that hasn't been cut yet, which would also tell u they are employees, and holding up the phone boxes to create hype from the crowd. Not very observant are you? Or were you just attempting to troll?

Stop with the battery and sd card complaining already. There may only be 1 or 2 flagship phones out of many that will retain both in 2015. Sucks to limit your choices for the entire year. I would love to see Motorola release a better phone than the S6 but under your criteria you would not consider it because all moto flagships lack those 2 features. And it would be pretty silly to pick the HTC M9 over the S6 just because of the sd card slot. It's a bad choice vs the features of the S6

Yes, you are just saying. But like everything else you say, it's nonsense.

55. engineer-1701d unregistered

by most you are saying 1000 out of 150 million plus, jealous much, and since you dont know much the s6 active does have sd card and removable battery and water resistance.
