Meanwhile, US carriers have started posting videos with the handset’s unboxing and struggled to showcase its features in the most entertaining way possible. T-Mobile has just released a video with the Note 7’s unboxing, shot at Wild Waves Waterpark.
The unboxing video is truly something else, as it’s shot entirely in the water park and even on slides. The video starts with T-Mobile’s expert Des Smith unboxing the Galaxy Note 7 on a water slide.

The video also shows off the handset’s dual-curved Super AMOLED display that measures 5.7 inches, while also highlighting that it’s the first smartphone to support HDR video playback, which got Des Smith really excited.
The device is available for pre-order at T-Mobile for $69.99 down and $32.50 for 24 months. Customers who get the device before August 28 can pick from a full year of Netflix, a Samsung Gear Fit2, and a 256GB memory card.
