Samsung offering free Galaxy S6 edge units to iPhone users in the US

Galaxy S6 edge plus

Well well well, looks like Samsung can’t stop being jealous of people using iPhones instead of Samsungs eh?

Recently Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 edge+, while the Note 5 isn’t part of this marketing campaign, the latter is.

As we all know Samsung and Apple are two very big rivals and looks like Samsung won’t leave Apple alone. Samsung is offering free Galaxy S6 edge and S6 edge+ units to iPhone users in the United States for 30 days. This is basically like a free trial of the phone before you decide to switch to it or not. What’s even funnier is that they include a set of Smart Switch utilities along with it!

We have seen this kind of strategy before with the Note 4 (see below) and looks like Samsung is doing it again this year. What do you think guys? Are you gonna fall into Samsung’s trap? Or will you keep using your iPhones? Let us know.
