In a press release for the Spring lineup of T-Mobile's smartphone offerings, the company revealed that Samsung's latest flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, are doing very well in terms of sales.
According to T-Mobile, since the company started pre-orders on March 27 for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, the response of customers have been very good. In the first 10 days of the pre-order period for the Samsung smartphones, sales of the Galaxy S6 through T-Mobile have already almost doubled the sales of its predecessor, the Galaxy S5, which was previously Samsung's most popular smartphone in the Galaxy line at T-Mobile.
It can be assumed then that, if sales of the Galaxy S6 has been pretty overwhelming through T-Mobile the same could be happening right now in other wireless carriers around the nation.
The surge in sales for the Galaxy S6, however, is not much of a surprise, especially compared to the disappointment that consumers experienced with the Galaxy S5. The underwhelming previous flagship smartphone of Samsung is the reason why the company decided to do a major overhaul for the Galaxy S6, resulting in the massive hype and demand surrounding the device.
In the press release, T-Mobile added that the Galaxy S6 smartphones are available through the company's Simple Choice plans, which would require no down payment for customers to acquire the devices. For customers looking to own a 32GB Galaxy S6, the monthly fee will be $28.33, and for those looking to own a 32GB Galaxy S6 Edge, the monthly fee will be $32.49.
T-Mobile also touted its Carrier Freedom feature, which allows customers to switch carriers easily as T-Mobile will be paying the customer's early termination fees and phone payments up to a total of $650 to the customer's previous carrier.
T-Mobile added that for customers that send in their orders of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge before April 12, they will be receiving a free one-year subscription for Netflix, which is worth over $100.
There has been much news surrounding Samsung's latest flagship smartphones, with the hype seemingly unfazed despite various reports of the quality of the devices. One of the recent issues that have been reported about the Galaxy S6 is that some units apparently have an issue with the camera flash LED, as the light never turns off despite the camera or the smartphone being turned off. In addition, there have been reports that some Galaxy S6 Edge units have blemishes and scratches right out of the box.
