Samsung launches Edge-ucational videos to promote the Galaxy S6 edge (and Snapchat)
Remember that Galaxy Note 4 promo video that was full of puns? Well, Samsung is kind of back in the pun business with a series of "Edge-ucational" videos, which obviously feature the Galaxy S6 edge.

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.

Apple fans lack logic. Apple offers. 750p display, 1gb of ram, 1810mah battery, gorilla glass 1, 8mp camera , and 16gb storage for 849 cad. Competition offers QHD display, 3gb of ddr4 ram, 2550mah, gorilla glass 4, 16mp camera with OIS and 32gb of storage for 699 cad. That's not even getting into the quick charging and wireless charging etc. No one offer as dual edge display Samsung is the only one that offers one for a $100 more than a normal handset and the screen is actually expensive to produce. So in what universe are those even remotely the same of a crime? In the deluded iverse I guess.

All I hope is that other users who complain samsung 100 additional models over the edge as the Apple user always pay more for less year after year. The mere fact that the Samsung S6 starts at 32GB and worth as smartphone to choose.

2014 Android fan: "Apple are crooks! They want to charge $100 more to quadruple or double your storage? Stupid leeches, I can buy X storage for tree fiddy..." 2015 Android fan: "The S6 Edge is so worth that extra $100 because it looks cool."

It's hard to say that 100$ extra is a waste for S6 edge buyers. The dual curve scree is barely to manufacture, it requires specialists from Samsung to get the manufacturing processes go accurately. That's why Samsung has to charge you more for that, furthermore it's also in supply shortage.

It actually costs Samsung a lot of money to add that display and they don't have $194 billion from giving us low end specs for years. That's the main difference, too bad you isheep won't be able to figure it out. Hopefully you morons figure it out before they hit 300 billion in liquid assets from raping you.

I have an S6, and I would never buy the Edge. Trying to justify how you are getting raped for a useless feature is amusing, though, so please continue.

I didnt buy the edge myself but it doesn't change the fact that its expensive to manufacture unlike Apple that charges 20gb of ram prices for 1gb. The edges are expensive whether you like it or not, they are the only ones with a factory that can produce it.

Yeah, so Samsung gets to charge more for curved glass, but it isn't okay to charge the same amount for quadrupling and doubling storage. Apple doesn't get to charge more for designing the only custom smartphone CPU cores, but it is okay to charge for a bunch of off-the-shelf components so long as it is sporting curved glass. Got it.

Yeah it's price based. It costs a lot to laser cut a diamond and apparently it also costs a lot to thermal form the curved glass. It called common sense. Umm, if Apple charges 20gb of ram prices for 1gb of ram, you better bet your life that they are charging more for custom cores. Besides, custom doesn't always mean better. An off the shelf part can be superior and cost more than a custom part easily. For all we know, the only reason Apple designed custom cores was because it's cheaper. Also, if anything, the Edge probably has a lot more custom components than any iPhone.

dual edge doesn't automatically make it beautifull, it still ugly and look cheap.

At least it's something unique that other phones can't bring you. And please, it doesn't look cheap, you have to head out to a shop and experience it in real life.

Hm, sorry to say there is nothing about the s6 edge that's cheap, unlike the iPhone, hm, how many cheap parts are in that phone?, I.e. Just to get started it costs Apple 100$ less to make it

seems like Samsung is trying really hard to advertise this S6/Edge. is the sales that bad? it's been a month and yet no official sales report from Samsung like usual.

It does... Great phone and great edge design, great camera, great screen display but sales maybe not that great as they expected. So, the company put all their effort for convince people to buy there product. Here in the Philippines, I don't see people using S6/Edge but many are Samsung mid-range phone. Not just like iPhone 6/6+ are anywhere.

In the Philippines. The regular s6 has dual sim support. a killer feature for us Filipinos. I still see some 4s though :/

Yes it is. Good features and never see anyone using s6/EdgEdge. I used my iPhone 6 and Nokia 1280 for my secondary phone because I like it, simple and easy to used.

Hahahah,min the UK I see loads of users with s6 and the edge, as the s6 edge costs more than the iPhone I be thinking you not got the cash

You'd be pretty dam rich to have a current flagship phone in the Philippines, my family is pretty poor so the most they have is older iPhone and more mid-range Androids. From what I've heard Samsung is more popular (at least with my family which is basically a whole village) probably cos the prices on the mid-rangers.

You havent even seen my school yet. People have M8s, S5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, 4s, and s4. And I study in a public school which is mindblowing as f++k

Yeah, it's selling so bad that they have to ramp up edge production 10 fold by the end of this year and are planning to release more edge phones this year. Shrug.
