Samsung takes the Galaxy S6 for a walk on the streets of Seoul, asks passersby for their opinions


So, now that we are officially in the Galaxy S6 / S6 edge launch month, Samsung will, naturally, be pushing various promotional material out in the media space, making sure that its metal-clad warriors are noticed and remembered by many. This latest tidbit is a 20-some second clip of reactions of random people who see the Galaxy S6 for the very first time. Samsung Tomorrow took one of the metal-clad warriors on the streets of Seoul and stopped random passers to ask them their opinion on the handset, at least that's how the video is described by the creators themselves.

We are not given a clear shot of the phone, really, and we're not sure whether Samsung is trying to pull a Xiaomi-like move on people who haven't seen the new Galaxy S6, or it just figured that showing the phone yet another time will not be as much use as recording actual reactions. We'd guess – a bit of both.

So, check out the vid below. If you are currently throwing money at the screen, allow us to remind you that you can pre-order one of the new Samsung flagships from any of the four major US carriers as well as at Samsung Experience shops in Best Buy. If you wish to read up more on the handsets, check our reviews here (S6, S6 edge) or this "all there is to know" article if you feel like you've got some catching up to do.

My Note 4 beats both the iPhone 6 and 6 plus. But I know when I'm beat; the S6 is a beast in a smaller package.

No one phone beats the preference of the person using the device they chose. Some knowledge for ya and an end to which phone is better than the next. But probably not an end to it cause you guys can't let it go.lol

Yes good job for Samsung and maybe I will buy the S6 Edge for secondary phone.

Out of pure curiosity why do people often buy more than one phone. I can understand if you require both a home and work phone. Bare in mind that I am European so I do not know if there is any particular reason for america such as carrier coverage.

Some are representatives for carriers. Some are issued phones of their choice through the companies they work for. And some live at home with no other financial responsibilities including girlfriends or wives. John B.

I like iOS and Android, so that's why I buy more than one.

Because I'm curious about this S6 Edge like the others. Not a fan for Samsung because I never use one. I'm happy with my iPhone 6 and that's all matter for me.

Me, troll? You've gotta see the #1 comment to see if it really deserves to be a troll.

Sales, customer satisfaction, device support, and resale value are also aspects. I'll wait for response.

Customer satisfaction? iPhone 6 plus has a flaw, bendgate. yet Apple still denies it and even acted like immature kid toward German magazine for their criticism:http://www.macobserver.com/tmo/article/apple-reportedly-blacklists-german-magazine-for-doing-what-everyone-did-ben

Only a stupid person would still bend his/her iPhone. Grow up, man. Bendgate is old news now. Never heard of bendgate a month after it started. P.S. Apple responded to bendgate and announce that it would repair/replace bent iPhone 6 unless it was intentionally bent.

Reports say that the iPhone 6 gets almost 100% satisfaction. I wanna here what Samsung has to offer.

Since when sitting in your parent's basement is considered working? Unless you're building your own baby crib.

Given the fact that you have 2,003 posts and counting, it's much more likely that you're sitting in your parent's basement. But seriously, what the hell is wrong with you? You already got destroyed in your troll attempts yesterday, you going for round 2?

It's cool to see you coming here for the rescue of a fellow sheep, big applause for you. As for me getting "destroyed" yesterday, that did affect my life if you ask me, i was on thr brink of committing suicide.

Don't worry, I would too if I were living in my parent's basement.

Same thing I said when I saw it at the mall. I was like wow! I never said that when I bought my 6 plus.
