Samsung’s Galaxy S5 was finally debuted in Barcelona at the famous tech convention called Mobile World Congress. With some pretty impressive new features, I am sure Samsung won’t have too many issues making some sales. Samsung has taken it a step further in an attempt to attract new customers by giving a slew of freebies to come with the phone, costing over $500 dollars per phone.
There is a list on their official website that lists all of the free apps and subscriptions coming with the phone. To mention a few, you get a free 6-month subscription to the Wall Street Journal usually costing $160, a 3-month Premium LinkedIn Upgrade of $75, a 1-year subscription to Bloomberg Businessweek of $30, 3-months of Evernote Premium that would cost $15, 50 GB of free cloud storage for 6 months, numerous fitness aps, special PayPal deals, game credits, and much more.
The Galaxy S5 will be ready for sale in the US, being launched at the end of April with all the popular major American carriers. With all of the “freebies”, I am skeptical of how high the price will be as it hasn’t been announced yet.
