Samsung's Galaxy S6 edge unboxing videos are like nothing you've seen before

Samsung's Galaxy S6 edge unboxing videos are like nothing you've seen before
Usually, unboxing videos are quite boring, and rarely provide details that you didn't already know about. That's why Samsung decided to unbox its Galaxy S6 edge in a unique manner.

As you'll see, Samsung's videos are less about unboxing the handset, and more about not boring the viewers. There are two videos to watch, the first presenting a black sapphire Galaxy S6 edge, and the second one showing the handset's gold platinum version. Mind you, the first video could very well have received a PG rating (if it were a movie), due to its often violent nature.

Samsung didn't make unboxing videos for the regular Galaxy S6, likely because the S6 edge is the one that drew more attention from the media and consumers, while also being the most expensive among the two new Galaxies (it's even more expensive to manufacture than Apple's iPhone 6 Plus).

Both the Galaxy S6 edge and Galaxy S6 are available to buy in various markets around the world (including the US) since last week. Did you buy one yet? Or do you plan to get one sometime soon?

Samsung is really outdoing themselves here. Awesome unboxings.

Definitely overdue for some time in the spotlight.

Moto needs to follow in Samungs footsteps, as Samsung followed in Apples in the marketing approach.

Definitely agree. Good to see that Samsung isn't making fun of the competition anymore to attempt to sell their product. All that said about them was "Look at me, look at me, I'm an insecure company that can't beat Apple". Now that they are worrying about themselves, things are looking good for their future sales. I think their previous ads did more harm than good, giving Apple the spotlight haha. Moto deserves a lot more cred. I really want to seem them progress.

LOL.......Samsung following Apple's ?! Give me a break ! Even your own Phil Schiller admitted Apple's marketing team is dismal. Take those fanboys glasses off and you'll see better. Samsung's ad had always been great especially since GS5.

You're calling someone a fanboy, yet you show nothing but fanboyism in this post. Hilarity. Hilarity everywhere.

Thanks for making no point at all ! Not that I owe you an explanation but I called him a fanboy because he just made a statement without anything to back it up. (Its like me telling you - You're stupid ! - but without letting you know why) I at least cared to mention why Samsung would follow a company's marketing strategy which by their OWN marketing head is considered pretty bad unlike you who can't seem to comprehend anything past fanboyism. Take your head outta that ass and read the comment in its totality.

So you're an subjectivist also. Good job.

You misspelled rationalist.

Don't be mad. Just understand the world doesn't revolve around yours, or anyones, one sided opinion.

Love the edge, but that vid was not the business. Nice notifications interface too.

AMOLED display...All parts are made in Japan, Samsung is just assembling them and calling it Super AMOLED Metal frame and glass back...Galaxy S6 and Edge are obviously inspired by Sony's OmniBalance Design language, which has used metal frame and glass back since 2013 Camera...As everyone knows, it uses Sony's sensor. Fingerprint Scanner... Fingerprint scanner is first used in Fujitsu Arrows Z New TouchWiz UI... obviously inspired by Xperia's new Lollipop UI, which uses blue and white for the base colours. TouchWiz looks uglier though. I cannot believe people like copying company like Samesung... so pity!

butthurt sony fanboy,, touchwiz inspired by xperia ui ? damn you touchwiz uses blue and white long long time ago my friend,,.. and yeah they use sony sensor,, but which has the better software?

16. NihonDaisuki unregistered

What about every other things like camera and material it uses? Do some serious research before you call me butthurt fanboy, please?

20. NihonDaisuki unregistered

"which has the better software?" Sony, of course, as it's a Sony's sensor. Sony's phone + Sony's sensor = SUPERB Samsung' phone + Sony's sensor = unoptimized, MEH It's a common sense bro...
