On Wednesday April 24th, Samsung and BestBuy celebrated the launch of the all new Samsung Experience kiosks now being placed in hundreds of BestBuy stores across the country. With a full display of Samsung products from the Galaxy S III, Note II, Note 10.1 tablet, the newly released Note 8.0 and of course the new Galaxy S 4.

The launch began with the unveiling of the shop at Union Square’s 24 Hour BestBuy in New York City. Samsung than posts on their Facebook that they will be giving away 300 tickets to the Official Launch Event held the next day on Thursday April 25th, which features a performance from Bruno Mars. Of course fans raced to beat the clock and eachother to grant them access to what they had no idea was going to be an amazing night!

Samsung, BestBuy,Bruno Mars, & Fans Come Together in NYC To Celebrate The Launch Of The ‘Samsung Experience’ Shops & Galaxy S 4

In typical Samsung fashion, they not only had a special performance planned but activities through out multiple Samsung Experience shops where reps were there to answer any question one might need. Though one very cool thing is that when interacting at these shops, you receive Samsung branded tokens which can then later be redeemed for awesome prizes like headsets, t-shirts, a Galaxy S 4, Note 8.0 and even a Smart TV! The energy was incredibe in the building, from the awesome drinks at the bar, the shops, Bruno Mars and even a surprise DJ set from RUN DMC member ‘Rev Run’.


As mentioned, there were multiple stations with the new Galaxy S 4 where fans and media could get up close and personal with some of its new features and accesories. Overall the night was truly something to remember and I would like to thank Samsung and BestBuy for giving me the opportunity to attend and also receive a new Galaxy S 4 to review for you guys!

Also, if you ever get the chance to catch Bruno Mars live, make sure you go! He tore up the stage at the event and there was no better way to celebrate a successful launch week than that. But of course, the festivities aren’tt over yet. The Samsung galaxy S 4 will be hitting stores and online stores this coming weekend so make sure to grab your new phone and send us a photo on twitter showing the device!
