Deal: Galaxy S7 & S7 edge get official $250 discount with free 128GB microSD

Deal: Galaxy S7 & S7 edge get official $250 discount with free 128GB microSD
With the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ looming, the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge are coming towards the end of their flagship life cycles. The duo has endured an especially busy year, having been forced to pick up the Galaxy Note 7's slack whilst fending off Google's new foray into the high-end smartphone arena. Still, the S7 series has withstood the test of time and while we're desperate very eager to see what's next, heavy discounts on the models of yesteryear could prove very tempting indeed. 

From the outset, the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge were costlier than most, which would have priced many prospective consumers out of the reckoning. But in an effort to shift as many units as it can before the S8's arrival, Sammy has officially cut the price of the current fleet by a tidy $250. Not only that, but the firm is also throwing in a free 128-gig microSD card to bolster the 32 GB of native real estate

Through Samsung's official web store, the Galaxy S7 can be had for $299.99, while the edge model costs $444.99. The S7 is available in Gold Platinum or Black Onyx, while the S7 edge is also available in Blue Coral or Silver Titanium. We should hasten to add that this deal applies to the Sprint model only.

Both models are held in high regard, with the S7 edge having recently scooped the GSMA Smartphone of the year award at MWC. Internally, there's not much to call between them, but the larger, curvaceous display of the s7 edge does give it an additional touch of finesse. Whichever you choose, you'll get Android 6 Marshmallow as standard, but both are upgradable to the more recent Android 7 Nougat

I wish these discounts applied to countries other than US. Here the S7 edge launched at 850$ and still costs 750$. Almost no change in price for a full year :(

In Lebanon the price dropped from $720, to $590 today. And it comes in what they are calling the Premium Package, you get one rugged case, S-View cover, fast charging power bank, and 2 screen protectors, all Samsung's official accessories. The S7 also gets the same deal, but goes for $520. It is a great deal when you compare it with the prices of it's compitetion.

It might be already old (one year only), but it's still definitely a flagship, even by today's standards.

in regards to your statement. even those of us that live in the US wish that this 299 deal was available with other providers other than Sprint. Hardly anyone has sprint let alone good service. that's why it's 299. because Samsung has too many left in inventory with sprints cell radio bands.

Click bait title. if it doesn't apply to any other provider than verizon then should be implied so when asking people to open this damn article up and give up their timing into reading it just to find out that it is "NOT" "OFFICIALLY" samsung's take on the prices. To see what i mean, just take a look at the title from GSMArena for the same news. It's time i remove phonearena from my bookmarks to make some space for a REAL news forum.

What? The base S was $650 and the edge $750. Typically only ATT and Sprint charge more.but tgatbwere less than $800 for the edge om all carriers since day ome If you paid more you got robbed The S7 edge cpuld t have been $850 because that was the Note7's price. I paid $779 for the S7 edge om T-Mobile just a few weeks ago.

My country has taxes and custom duties. Sorry to burst your bubble but phones in other countries cost a lot more than in US. An iPhone 7 32GB costs 950$ and an iPhone 7 plus costs over 1100$. I didn't buy the phone, and I know adequately enough that what price is good for me. I work at Samsung FFS.

$299outright is what these phones should sell for at launch. The current prices are ridiculous and for sheep.

Whoa man! Such huge price drops! Who knows they might toss it for free on 28 March.

This deal is useless, since no one has Sprint. Sprint should pay you to use their service. It's that bad.

To some extent I can agree. It's definitely better than the Obama phone

I don't know anyone with sprint in my area to know just how well it is here.

That is probably your first indication .....if it was really good you would probably at least know one person.

Why is it Sprint only????

16. joeytaylor

Posts: 957; Member since: Feb 28, 2015

Because Sprint is making the deal and not Samsung.

Only for Sprint... Damn, Sprint makes this deal lose all it's appeal.

Why these offers never launch in India? Average Indian want a phone under 20000 INR = 320 $ approx . These thing should be considered .

The deal is only for the sprint variant it seems.

ATT>T-Mo (at least as for general coverage / reliability).

if you want fast and latest Android update, there is a brand called "move away from Samsung".

33. trojan_horse

But at least, Samsung's updates, even though slow, are total when released... not some half-baked stuff... FFS.

in my region, way back in 2016 when first launched, S7 Edge (32GB) was 700 USD. now in March, the price is still hovering around 560-600 USD. but a complimentary wireless charger is included though.
