Samsung Korea gives a free Galaxy S6 to those loyals still rocking the original Galaxy S
A free Galaxy S6 to those who have bought each Galaxy S model, and those users still rocking the first S, plus a year's worth of free calls on SK Telecom - that's the bounty that Samsung loyals will take home when all the festivities around the Galaxy S6 launch are done and dusted in the company's homeland.

It turns out that no less than 17, 000 SK Telecom subscribers are still happy enough with the Galaxy S1 performance to keep it at hand (or maybe in the drawer) that long time after launch. According to the carrier's statistics, about 15 million subscribers have gotten at least one Samsung Galaxy S phone since the S was unleashed on the unsuspecting masses in 2010. 

Moreover, roughly 1,600 SK Telecom users got each and every of the one of the 13 different Galaxy S series reincarnation in Samsungs homeland, while 2,400 bought more than 10, swapping phones every six months or so. Now that's what we call brand loyalty.

And Samsung-fanatics.

But I'm the same. I personally owned the S3, Note II, Note III ,Note IV, Tab S and Pro-ordered the S6 Edge 128. My wife had the S3, S4, S5 and now Note 4.
One of my siblings have an S3, but I didn't buy it I bought one of my siblings an S4. I got my mom an S3, and she has a Tab 8.4.
My wife still has family back in the Philippines and I gifted her sister an S4 and her husband I gifted the Galaxy Mega and one of her nieces a Tab S. My wife son has a Galaxy 5 but I didn't buy it.

I want a Note Pro 12.2, but I am waiting to see if Samsung is going to update the hardware.

Drakulinho, if you bought all of these, you can surely afford the S6. Good luck mate.

It's not loyalty why they are still using the original S, they just cannot afford to buy the new Galaxy because they are so expensive!

You don't need a new one if the one you have is fine. 17,000 still using a phone that old is awesome.

Though what you said could be fairly true, I am sure if they saved a coin, they could have gotten a newer Galaxy by now.

The fact Samsung says here, we will give you a new phone is awesome.

I bet even with all the money Apple has, they wouldn't even give you a 5C unless you sign a 2 year contract.

I so wanted the Galaxy S2 Plus. I didn't like the orginal S2. But the S2 Plus that T-Mobile had was the most beautiful phone I had every seen design-wise.

Until the S6, I honest feel none of the S models look better than it does.

Anyone remember the Galaxy SII Skyrocket?

I can't say I see anyone still carrying an original S, but I still see lots of 2011 iPhone 4S's around.
