Samsung mocks the iPhone 6 in new Galaxy S6 edge promo videos

Samsung mocks the iPhone 6 in new Galaxy S6 edge promo videos
Samsung just posted two new promo videos that compare the Galaxy S6 edge to the Apple iPhone 6. Both videos have the same conclusion: the Galaxy S6 edge is "greater" than Apple's handset, as "not all smartphones are created equal."

In the first video, Samsung shows what the edge of its new Galaxy can do: thanks to the curved display that's covering it, the device's edge can shows various colors when your favorite contacts are calling, in addition to displaying text messages, news, weather information, and so on. At the same time, as Samsung is quick to point out, the edge of the iPhone 6 shows "nothing," but at least it "has a vibrate function."

The second video reminds us that the Galaxy S6 edge features built-in wireless charging and a wide-angle front-facing camera, both of which are obviously not included on the iPhone 6.

We're not sure what Apple will think after seeing Samsung's new videos, but to everyone loving technology first, and brands second, they should be fun to watch. Take a look below:

Yep, true that the Edge is pointless. Do you know how i get to see whos calling or texting me? By putting my phone on the table THE NORMAL WAY UP! they've tried to tell people what makes their phone better by focusing on things that are absolutel pointless. *slow claps*

I'll ask you when Apple will copy Edge's display in their future phones. Also people who are buying edge, they are not buying it for the functionality but for the look. So don't be a butt hurt and try to appreciate a true innovation.

For a device that is pointless or great, Samsung sure spends lots of money comparing it to Apple. Well, at least Cupertino gets free publicity.

Typical samsung always looking for ways to discredit another phone, if not by paying people they do it through their video ads. Will be much more classy if you just show us what your phone can do without having to mocking other phones.

Yea as much as I hate iphones, directing at other companies seems like a low blow and a bit desperate. Keep it classy and formal.

Apple is the worst company There is in techworld. I'm not protecting apple. Don't even let me start about them. But yeah, Apple deserves this kind of humiliation for being Apple xD

They're not being humiliated though...they are being given free advertising and are more than likely loving it.

Just look at that stock price, that'll show just how humiliated Apple is.

Absolutely - notice how Apples ads are so much more professional and don't include their competitors devices. Samsung are trashy and desperate for sales it would appear..

I'm surprised they took a while to come out with these types of ads...unless there are already some "Galaxy S6 vs iPhone 6" ads out there that I have just not seen...

I like my S6 Edge over the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, but the edge really is just a gimmick to me. It has SOME uses, but nothing really that awesome. The tech through the rest of the phone (camera - front & back, screen, etc) is much nicer than the iPhone's.

This is why the standard S6 is better than the edge. In order for the people lighting feature to work, it has to be face down with the correct side oriented towards you. Wouldn't it be easier to keep the phone facing upwards so you can see everyone who texts/calls? Another glorified gimmick by Samsung.

I usually have my phone facedown while at work... would be nice to know if Im getting a call from someone I consider important.

Oh boy this will be good, In my personal expereince the S6 edge did have some good things over my iphone 6 plus but the most important thing to me was the keyboard. Theres no better phone for me than the iphone to type fast and on point. I did try other 3rd party keyboards but non like my iphone. Even after 4 months with my Nexus 6 i still cant get used to it.
