Instead of showing a box being unwrapped and its contents being put under a magnifying glass, Samsung started from the other way around by showing the new smartphone being assembled by hand. It has already published a beautifully shot inboxing video for the Galaxy S6 edge+ and now one for the Galaxy Note 5 has arrived. (more…)
