New Samsung ad showcases the HD gaming potential of the Galaxy S6 duo

New Samsung ad showcases the HD gaming potential of the Galaxy S6 duo
When it comes to promoting and advertising new products, few companies are as extravagant in spending as Samsung. Let's be fair, Sammy churns out more mobile devices than any other big-name brand, and therefore, it makes sense for new ads to be pushed on a regular basis. Having typically succumbed to temptation and indulged in some rival-bashing in the past, Samsung has stuck to waxing poetic about its own handsets in the latest promo for the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, highlighting the mobile gaming potential of the duo. 

Samsung Galaxy S purists may well harbor disappointment that neither of the latest models include removable batteries or expandable storage. But by the same token, the cries for a more premium finish were becoming increasingly vocal. While the flexibility of additional storage and swappable batteries shouldn't be underestimated, the S6 and S6 edge unquestionably represent the biggest improvement to Samsung's flagship smartphone line in a few generations. 

The 1440 x 2560 display really is a joy to behold, and as well as admiring it, the panel is also rather useful for some HD gaming. It's this point that Samsung Mobile wants to emphasize in this latest short from its official YouTube feed, entitled 'HD mobile gaming on the move.'

You can check the advert below in its entirety. It's a pretty cool ad, it has to be said, but we can't help thinking that after a couple of hours of cutting-edge racing simulators, users may rue the lack of an interchangeable juice pack:

S6 edge is hands down the best phone I've used. Hardware features, looks, just awesome. Better battery life, is all I ask for. Kudos Samsung

Do you get accidental touches on the edge when you're using it, dark ?

Not really, cuz it's not a wide phone.

It sounds awesome, and is making me salivate at the thought of what the Note 5 may have in store. I haven't upgraded in under two years for a while, but the Note 5 might make me an annual upgrader.

I have to double take before I respond to you, since that idiot jacked your profile pic and name.

Plus, its perfect for when you just happen to be sitting on the hood of your classic muscle car in an alley and in the mood for a game.

Every time I see S6 Edge I fall in love with this phone. Just don't wanna sell my Note 4 ;(

The Note4 looks sexier and slick than the S6-S6edge. Note4 has oblong looks, while the S6 is curved, looks ugly.

Don't sell Note 4, keep it. Just buy S6 Edge.

The refinements made to touch wiz, are simply to die for. It's so much more toned down, no longer clunky, or overly bloated (still a little bloat), but do able. The themes store is awesome. I have the space theme, and discovered I can still use my own wallpapers with it. This is the first Samsung phone I'm truly in love with. From the resizeable keyboard to text shortcuts, to the IR blaster, to the sheer beauty of the phone, I'm blown away.

Agreed Samsung stepped up it's game when it's back was against the wall, like HTC did with the M7, My hope is that they don't drop the ball but continue in the refinement of the S6/Edge 6 - Next year should include some form of duo front facing speakers

Too bad all the good, stunning, games are on iOS, which Android will never get. I hate Apple.

To bad, Tegra games are much better than IOs.

That's one area ios has a true advantage. Other than that, the s6 owns my 6 plus. As an iOS guy owning both, I gotta say it ain't even close, other than Apples huge eco system.

Developing iOS apps means ensuring they work nicely on a small range of iPhones and/or iPads: generally 6-8 different devices depending how far back the developer wants to go. Advertisement  On Android, it's a different story: nearly 12,000 different devices out there in the hands of people, with a wider range of screen sizes, processors and versions of the Android software still in use. Many developers' lack of enthusiasm for Android is down to concerns not just about the costs of making and testing their apps for it, but also the resources required to support them once they're launched, if emails flood in about unspotted bugs on particular models. Thats why ios is first.

No, iOS is first because Google took too long playing catch up on the tools and support. Xcode was leagues beyond Google's approach of supporting 3rd party development platforms. Then They released Android Studio which just came out of beta for the most part this year. Android development is easier than iOS due to the open source nature of it, you can just see how everything works within core APIs. You even have a fairly good resource management system available for different screens and platforms. Yet it is all useless if the development tools suck.

Hey, look. It's my twin brother who died a birth. He's had a bad diaper rash since Android overtook IOS (in both sales and features). It got much worse this past year as the Note 4 and Galaxy S6 were rated as the best phones available nearly everywhere.

To enjoy higher FPS games, root the phone, overclock the Gpu to extra 200mhz, and you will see a huge difference. My Exynos Note4 Gpu is clocked at 800mhz, instead of 588mhz.

S6? No never mind, Samsung are damn overpriced and I am going to buy a good phone at one-third the cost. At least the phone can multitask better than this junk.

Let me know which one costs 1/3rd and performs better.
