Samsung Really Wants You to Drop Your iPhone in Favour of Note 5 or S6 Edge+

Samsung really wants to lure away iPhone users in the US. Following the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+, the South Korean manufacturer has said that it will give iPhone users a chance to try its latest smartphones.

As a result, Samsung has launched a program that aims to boost sales at a time when the popularity of its smartphones is vanishing. At the same time, sales of the iPhone remain strong, and a decline in premium pricing has kept people from purchasing phones from the world’s biggest smartphone OEM.

Looking at the sales numbers recently published by Gartner, Samsung still rocks the space as of the second quarter of 2015, but the number of smartphones shipped has been sliding for the past several quarters.

The company saw its share of the market drop by around 4% in the second quarter, despite a flashy March launch of the Samsung S6 line of high-end smartphones, which apparently failed to excite customers to the extent the company had hoped.

So, to reverse the slide, Samsung is launching this new program targeting iPhone users. “For just one dollar, you can try one of our latest Samsung phones for 30 days with no obligation. Your test-drive kit will come with the phone of your choice, an activated sim card, and a step-by-step guide to help you start your test drive. After 30 days, if you buy a qualifying Samsung device, there’s even more love in store for you,” the company announced.

To claim your Samsung device, simply visit the samsungpromotions.com website from your iPhone and select your carrier. It looks as though AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile are participating in this promo. You are limited to one device per account, so choose carefully and let us know if you stick with your chosen Samsung device 30 days after trying it.
