While Samsung may stir up great indignation among unlucky Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge buyers if the purported performance gap between Snapdragon and Exynos variants proves authentic and noticeable in real life, the Korean OEM can do no wrong when it comes to its US-based fans.
The nation’s four top carriers have all started to ship S7 pre-orders in advance of the official launch date, with two of them already introducing compelling BOGO deals, and each and every retailer letting you have a go at a gratis Gear VR headset.
That includes Cricket Wireless, a small but feisty AT&T prepaid daughter network, despite sales only kicking off in its physical stores and online on March 18. According to the terms and conditions over at Samsung’s promotions webpage, the Gear VR bundle offer expires, you guessed it, on March 18.
But clearly, it’s set to be extended, at least for Cricket customers, until April 1, while supplies last. Unfortunately, just like the Sprint-subordinate Boost and Virgin Mobile, Ma Bell’s subsidiary won’t sell the Galaxy S7 Edge alongside the flat 5.1-inch version.
The “standard” model is priced at a now standard $650 free of contracts, obligations or any types of catches, with 32GB internal storage space, microSD support, water resistance, and so on and so forth.
Why choose Cricket over Boost and Virgin, not to mention AT&T or Sprint? You can get unlimited nationwide talk and text, as well as 2.5GB high-speed data access for as little as $35 a month. Plus, unlimited international texting and an additional unthrottled 7.5GB LTE data for 20 bucks more.
