Samsung now takes up to $400 off the unlocked Galaxy S10, S10+, and S10e (with trade in)
Earlier this year, when Samsung started taking pre-orders for its Galaxy S10 smartphone family, it launched a pretty attractive trade in program. More exactly, Samsung allowed customers to receive up to $550 in credit towards the purchase of any S10 with trade in of an older phone. Of course, in order to actually get $550 in credit, you had to trade in a high-end expensive device in the vein of Galaxy Note 9, iPhone XS, or Google Pixel 3.

As of last month, Samsung's Galaxy S10 trade in program has changed, with the company only offering up to $300 in credit, regardless of the smartphone model that you were willing to trade in. Today, however, the offer became more advantageous, although only for US customers planning to buy an unlocked Galaxy S10, who can now get up to $400 in credit when they trade in an old smartphone.

This enhanced trade in deal includes any Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, or Galaxy S10e model as long as it's unlocked. The offer is explicitly not available for carrier versions of the S10 series, but these are still covered by the previous "up to $300" offer.

For your convenience, here are the only handsets that you can trade in to get the full $400 credit when purchasing an unlocked Galaxy S10: Samsung Galaxy Note 9, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+, iPhone XS and XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone X, iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL, and LG V40. Any other phone will either get you less than $400, or is not mentioned in Samsung's list of devices eligible for trade in.

Samsung says that its new trade in deal will be available for a limited time. Does the offer make you want to go and buy an unlocked Galaxy S10? Let us know in the comments below!

So this is the same deal as before, but for the unlocked models. Well, that's good.

Our carriers gives every month their best 15 selling phone lists and today we got new ones and well it doesn’t look good for Samsung, S10 wasn’t in any of the lists. Last month it was number one and place six with few carriers. Carriers also said Huawei Pro 30 is so popular that there wasn’t one for everyone.

Nah. Not much to gain. S10 models seem to be buggy judging from users' reports.

Good deal, I got the S10e unlocked. Though I am not satisfied for this year's Galaxy S10s, it's time to upgrade my S8.
