In Russia, Samsung will give you a large discount on two high-end models if you trade in an iPhone
If you have your mind set on the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+, or the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Samsung is making it more affordable for you to pick up either handset. Trade in your Apple iPhone 5, or Apple iPhone 5s, and Sammy will grease your palm with a promotional certificate that will knock rubles off of the price of either phone. Oh, did we tell you that this deal is only being offered in Russia?

Trade in the iPhone 5 or iPhone 5s, and receive a certificate that drops the price of the 32GB Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ by 10,000 rubles ($155 USD). If the 64GB Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is your preference, trading in either iPhone model will allow you to buy Samsung's high-end phablet with a discount certificate valued at 15,000 rubles ($233 USD).

If you don't own the iPhone 5 or iPhone 5s, Samsung will reward those loyal to the company by also accepting in trade the Samsung GALAXY Note II, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Samsung Galaxy S5. According to the report, which comes out of Russia, the discount offered by Samsung for the Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5 remains the same, regardless whether the device traded-in is the iPhone 5, the iPhone 5s, or the Samsung Galaxy devices listed.

Thanks for the tip!

Believe me, there are lots. And even in Belorussia there is a quite big count of iPhone users.

Note 4 Is still the best overall ideal productivity phablet Samsung has ever made...and so trading it for me is a downgrade well until I see if Sammy brings back the note "glory" with note 6

"On 2 high end models" The title is either clickbait or incredibly lazy. Just write out the names of the phones.

Right? I legitimately only clicked this article because I thought Samsung was selling TWO discounted phones for every iPhone trade-in. Whether it's intentional click bait or poor writing, definitely left a bad impression.

We have limited space. It was neither click-bait, or lazy. Regards, Alan F.

Ummm what's wrong with..... 'In Russia, Samsung is offering a huge discount on S6 Edge+ and Note5 for trading an iPhone.' Same or less characters then your title and to the point. Should you really have worded 'large discount on two high-end models' if you were short of space ? PS. English is not my first language.

Hi Alan! How's about "In Russia, Samsung offering large discounts on certain high-end models if you trade in an iPhone" or something along those lines? It's ambiguous enough for all of your Russian readership to want to click, since maybe they want one of those "certain" devices! Plus (by my count) it's one character fewer, so space shouldn't be an issue. I was being sincere with my complaint, from the title alone I thought Samsung was giving away two phones or something. But maybe that's just my bad... PS: Were we supposed to read the title as Yakov Smirnoff? Because I feel like that's where it was leading with the "in Russia" part, but it kind of trailed off...

Trade-in a Note 4 for a measly $155 Note5 discount? Heck, NO. Bad deal!

Note 6 brings back, IR blaster, and offers 128 gigs, no removable battery though.
