Device simulators can be helpful when you're not able to check out the devices in person. They can show you what the device interfaces look like and how the features work. Simulators are also good training tools, especially for inexperienced users.
Samsung has made simulators available in the past for its mobile devices, like the Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Note. It turns out, however, that the company makes simulators not only for its mobile devices, but for some of its digital cameras, TVs, Blu-ray players, and even refrigerators too.
