Samsung offers iPhone owners 30-day Galaxy Note 5 test drive
Got an iPhone and want to try out the competition?
For just $1, Samsung will let you test drive its brand new Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 edge+, or Galaxy S6 edge for 30 days — and provide you with free cellular service during the trial.
Samsung has received a lot of criticism for its Galaxy smartphones in recent years, thanks mostly to their tacky plastic designs and awful software. But the South Korean company has eradicated those things, and it wants smartphone consumers to take note — especially those who currently use an iPhone.
The new “Ultimate Test Drive” campaign gives iPhone owners in the U.S. the opportunity to try out a Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 edge+, or regular Galaxy S6 edge (but no Galaxy S6, for some reason) for 30 days with just a $1 “processing fee.”
Samsung will pay for your cellular service on the device during that time, and it will provide a “smart switch” cable that’ll help you transfer your data from your iPhone when you set up the device. It will also give you five days to ship the handset back when your 30-day trial is over.
Of course, Samsung is hoping that during this time, you’ll fall in love with its device and buy your own — or at least consider one when it’s time to upgrade. But if you don’t, at least you’ve tried out the competition, and it has only cost you $1.
To take advantage of Samsung’s offer, simply visit its promotions page using Safari on your iPhone before December 31 and fill out the form. Bear in mind that if you don’t send the handset back, Samsung will charge you for it. You will also have to pay up if the device is damaged while you’re using it.
