The Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge+ are Samsung’s latest premium smartphones, the devices it hopes will turn around its fortunes in the second half of 2015. They have the advantage of getting to the market way ahead of Apple’s anticipated successor to its successful iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. In order to be able to reach as many people as people and entice them to buy its latest high end offering, Samsung is giving iPhone users in the United States free Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S6 Edge+ units for 30 days in an effort to get them to experience Samsung’s endeavours first hand and hopefully be able to change the way they perceive the Samsung Galaxy brand and eventually jump ship. What about the rest of the world?
Samsung is doing what it has always done: release “experience” apps of its latest premium smartphones. The Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ Experience applications are already live on the Google Play Store and any Android user with a compatible device should be able to install them and get a feel of the two devices. Since not every feature of the two devices can be simulated in an application, users get a basic interactive demo of not just the design but also the key features like the Note 5 S Pen’s Air Command menu and the Apps Edge feature of the Galaxy S6 Edge+ as well as others like the ability to invite selected contacts to watch your live broadcast on YouTube and the two devices’ wireless charging capabilities.
The two apps can be downloaded directly here and here.
