6 free products are bundled with the Samsung Galaxy S5 in South Africa

Samsung Galaxy s5 lauch in South Africa

The much anticipated Samsung Galaxy S5, Gear Fit and the Gear 2 were officially showcased at a glitz and glamour event in South Africa. These devices were revealed by Samsung at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and have been in the press ever since – so beyond the retail price of R10 299, there is now “breaking news” until I get my hands on a review-unit  where I will provide a more “hands on” insight about the devices.

However, when you buy the S5 in SA, you not only get the phone but you also get the “Galaxy Gift Package” which is made up of several products that Samsung is bundling in with the Galaxy S5.

6 free products are bundled with the Samsung Galaxy S5 in South Africa:

ADH Premium

ADH Premium have been extended to the S5 which covers two claims over the 24 month warranty period, including water or screen damage repairs.

Smart Swap gives the users a loan device while their smartphone is being repaired.

Smart Pick-up is a door-to-door solution, meaning the original device will be collected and returned to the consumer anywhere in South Africa within 24 hours in all major cities.

Smart Value is a guaranteed future buyback of the device which is calculated against the retail price of the same device at the date of device purchase. Once the device has been traded in for a new Samsung Premium Device before or during the 12th month, the balance of the ADH Benefit is transferred to the new ADH Premium Term of 24 months. There is a 25% buyback during the fist 12 months.


DSTV BoxOffice

The play “queued history” is still available to listen to, regardless of whether the device is connected to the internet. The app is also able to make song recommendations based on your unique music preference and listening history. nMusic will also create your own playlist or if you run out of music ideas, you can listen to a playlist made by nMusic team.
