Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ unboxing

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ unboxing
Our time yesterday was spent mainly at Samsung’s Unpacked event in New York City, where they unveiled its two newest phablet smartphones. On one end, we have the Galaxy Note5, which is arguably still the king phablet in the space. And on the other, we have the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+, a super-sized edition of the S6 edge that was announced earlier in the year.

The kind folks over at FedEx promptly dropped off the Galaxy S6 edge+, so there’s always time for an unboxing right before all of the extensive testing we put these phones through. In typical fashion, the packaging follows after the S6 edge before it – a minimalist box with no pictures or images plastered on it. Rather, we’re just given the phone’s name and a mini-sized specs sheet listing on the back of the box.

Opening it for the first time, our eyes feast on the plastic wrapped Galaxy S6 edge+. Removing it, we find a SIM tray tool beneath it, while the usual set of accessories are found in the last layer of the box. They consist of the rapid charging wall charger, microUSB cable, a pair of Samsung stereo headphones, and the usual set of documentation. This particular setup is nothing new, as it’s rather conventional and doesn’t bring anything relatively new to the in-box experience.

Either way, we’ll be putting the phone through some extensive testing – while also trying to see how meaningful are the new features in the greater scheme of things. Anyway, don’t forget to check out our unboxing video below and expect our in-depth review soon!
