Despite its young age, super-appealing design, ultra-high-end specifications, and apparently, solid box-office performance thus far, the Galaxy S7 deals keep piling up. After netting its very early adopters Gear VR and even Gear S2 freebies, Samsung’s “next big thing” was the star of several BOGO arrangements, as well as gratis TV promotions, gift card offers, and now, a tempting bundle at T-Mobile.
For a limited time, i.e. until Saturday, May 21, both the flat and edge variants of the latest Android flagship come with Galaxy Grand Primes attached. No extra charge, no catches, no hoops to jump through.
You just need to sign up to an Equipment Installment Plan, commit to paying monthly fees for the Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge for two years, and have a little patience. It’ll take up to eight weeks for your account to be credited with a pre-paid Mastercard in the amount of $190, which is the current full retail price of the 5-inch low to mid-end Grand Prime.
Meanwhile, the S7 and S7 Edge normally start at $670 and $770 respectively, or $28 a month with $0 down and $30 a month with $60 upfront. But to further sweeten the deal, Magenta also shaves 50 bucks off the two’s total rates. That still doesn’t make the phones as cheap as you can get them on eBay, though at least the warranty conditions are crystal clear, and your 4G LTE connectivity steady almost everywhere on American turf.
As far as the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime is concerned, its strong points include LTE support, 1.5GB RAM, a quad-core 64-bit processor, and 5MP selfie cam, with Lollipop software and a low-res 960 x 540 screen feeling like the greatest weaknesses. Still, it’s free, so we can’t complain.
