The Samsung Galaxy S5 Gift Package revealed

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Gift Package revealed

When Samsung launched the Galaxy S5, there was a promise that several “goodies” will be packaged with the Galaxy S5 which got people guessing as to what Samsung will bundle in with their latest flagship device. As written in my previous post, the mobile wars are all about the software ie. the user experience. The more the consumer can relate to the software on the device, the more likely they will purchase that device over a rival. The Samsung Galaxy S5 Gift Package has been revealed.

Samsung notes that not all these bundled packages will be available in every region. According to the Samsung South African spokespeople, the South African packages have not been confirmed as yet. When you look at the list of apps and services, most are available for South Africans today and unless there is some licensing/ legal/ financial implications, the South African packages could be similar to the ones listed below.

There are $600 (around R6000) worth of value in lifestyle apps to entice customers. So if you are in the market for anew phone, and you currently pay for the Wall Street Journal, keep 100GB of files in Dropbox and Box and are into monitoring your fitness  then this offer is immediately very attractive.
