Samsung launches Edge-ucational videos to promote the Galaxy S6 edge (and Snapchat)
posted by Florin T. / May 15, 2015, 7:45 PM
Samsung has teamed up with Snapchat celebrity Shonduras (who creates Snapchat art by drawing on top of photos), and made several videos that share "secret Snapchat secrets" - so you too can make Snaps look cool. Needless to say, these secrets are shared using a Samsung Galaxy S6 edge in each video, and you can watch them all below.
As you may already know, the S6 edge is the fancier, more expensive variant of the regular Galaxy S6, sporting a unique dual-curve display (while most of its other features are identical to those of the S6). The S6 and S6 edge are Samsung's newest flagship smartphones, and we expect to see them in many other promo videos and ad campaigns. You can find out more about both handsets by checking out our Galaxy S6 review and our Galaxy S6 edge review.

A.) You can always buy the regular S6 instead. No one is forcing anyone to pay that extra hundred dollars. Samsung makes plenty of low and mid range phones for those who have tighter budgets. Or, you can always take your business elsewhere and buy a One Plus or Xiaomi handset. Android is not iOS, you have plenty of options. B.) The edge is pretty obviously mainly there for design, it's an aesthetic enhancement. It's no more a "gimmick" than the G4's leather back plates or Moto X's multitudinous customization options. C.) I don't see how advertising your product is attempting to "pull the wool" over somebody's eyes. Its a cell phone with a slightly raised price, not a conspiracy theory.

IMO it looks way cooler than any smartphone on the market and it's a good conversation starter. And yes it's just for the looks and of course it doesn't add any more functionality than the regular S6... In the end it's the matter of choice and preference.

it's unique with it's bended sides, but to say it's beautiful is a different matter. if Samsung could pull a more beautiful design for the rest of the Edge's body, making it more consistent with the "edgy" design language, rather than just bends the sides and keep the good ol' general Galaxy design, i'm sure it'd be a beautiful device. it still needs a lot more works to make S6 Edge beautiful.

Totally agree with you on this! They didn't change that much in the design of the Edge, it's still have the same aesthetics and design elements of the "Good ol' general Galaxy design" but you certainly can't deny that's one beautiful handset!

Why not? It looks better than say a leather back or the slight curved edges of the iPhone 6. If you don't ask why the edges are on the iPhone 6 or the One X or lumia 920 or even the GS3, then you have no business questioning the edges on the gs6 edge.

It's unique and very attractive. It might not be the most functional design but would I be crazy to say this phone has so much charisma and charm. Plus, it has a great camera and screen. I mean you cannot really go wrong unless you are looking for a different OS.

Because it looks awesome, has the best hardware, and because the people who buy them don't want another phone. Do people question what you buy with your own money? I don't see why people buy the Nexus or an iPhone, but it isn't my money so I don't care.

G4 is for a hardcore photographer. It does take better photo than the S6 edge, I have to admit it and the real leather is something spectacular that others phones lack . But S6 edge has plenty of features and functionality to play with. I think both phones are going to dominate the Android market.
