Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ unboxing
posted by John V. / Aug 14, 2015, 4:30 PM
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!

The more I look at it, the less speaking it is. I keep thinking about how I immediately need a durable cover due to the fragile-ness

I really don't like the font for the s6 series at all. This avant garde font is so coarse, ugly, heavy and obsolete straight from a century back. I was waiting something more fresh, tecky, geeky cool, scifiey and smart. It definitely looks like a box of cheap monkey perfume the kind someone can find in cheap resort areas supermarkets

That box looks eerily familiar to something. I just don't know what.

A few weeks ago they thought they owned the word "Plus". But notice how there were no "cough, cough, copycats" thrown Apple's way when they learned Samsung had been making "Plus" models since the S2? Whether it's gold colors, or white-ish boxes, at a certain point people have to accept the fact that Apple has made them delusional. But nope, they'll just go on using Apple Maps, Apple Wallet, split screen, notifications, large screens, power saving mode, and widgets while thinking "isn't it great Apple invented all this stuff for everyone else to copy."

In my opionin, it has lost its wow factor. the S6 Edge was and still is pretty slick . but this is the exact same thing with more power.. I dunno how to feel about this one yet.

Yesterday I experience with S6edge and s6edge+ one siting near other. Guess what? S6edge+ is better because of smaller bezels and it is a little more bigger than s6edge. Also it is moving fast and fluid. After the revealing of s6edge+ I said I will buy the s6edge but seeing and touching the new beast change my mind.
