Delivering a smartphone with great hardware and a refined software experience isn’t always enough to win over shoppers anymore, and in a market chock full of competition, some OEMs have really been trying to go that extra mile to win the favor of consumers. Back in March we told you about Samsung’s Galaxy Gifts, a collection of software and premium service subscriptions designed to sweeten the pot a little. Today we learn of a similar offer from Sony, this one intended to draw attention to its new Xperia Z2.
While this promotion is focused on the Z2, a fair deal of it is available to Z1 and Z1S users as well. From now through the end of July, Sony users can download the Xperia Lounge app to start taking advantage of the offer. Those who do so will get access to OfficeSuite Pro and the Garmin suite of apps (Garmin’s restricted to Z2 owners), pick up 50GB of free Box storage for life, and get free three-month trials of Evernote premium and Bitcasa’s 1TB plan. There’s also ten free Xperia themes available for download, as well as other games and apps Sony doesn’t get into naming here – all told, the company says you’re looking at about $350 worth of content and services, all free to Xperia users.
Remember, you’ve only got until the end of July to snag this offer (even if that does seem like a long way off at the moment), so don’t let it slip your mind.
