Trade-in your current phone at Sprint to receive $200 off the Samsung Galaxy S6 or Galaxy Note 5

With the Samsung Galaxy S7 less than two weeks away from being introduced, the carriers will start looking for creative ways to get rid of as much Galaxy S6 inventory as they can. Sprint has come up with a trade-in promotion that will be offered for a limited time. The nation's fourth largest carrier will give new and existing customers a $200 credit toward the purchase or lease of the Samsung Galaxy S6 or the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, if they trade-in the smartphone they currently are using.

The device being turned over to Sprint must be in working condition, and cannot be a leased handset. Existing Sprint subscribers must be eligible for an upgrade. Sprint says that by applying the value of the trade-in, the Galaxy S6 can be leased for only $9.76 a month. The Galaxy Note 5's monthly lease price drops to $16.67 monthly.

Sprint says that the offer can be combined with its 50%-off rate plan for those coming over to Sprint from Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T. The deal starts today at Sprint retail locations, and by the end of the week it should be offered online and by phone. This offer expires on March 3rd.

i understand why people buy iphones because apple hardware simply have better hardware and software integration and there is no alternative to IOS if your entire collection is purchased through app store. but there is no shortage of cheap specced-out android phones. i don't understand why people are still interested in buying samsung phones when there are hundreds of android alternatives. when you buy a samsung phone, you are paying iphone price for an android phone that is 1. a marginally better screen/camera that most of us can't notice the difference. 2. an carrier-branded and locked device with limited bands support (either gsm or cdma) 3. laggy OS with bloatwares and slow updates

You're right except for almost everything you wrote.

I like how you gave yourself a +1. Nothing like patting yourself on the back after trolling. Here let's go through them one by one since you failed to in your comment. 1. Not far from the truth. It's a great camera but so was the Note 4's camera. The camera isn't that much better than other. 2. Also true. Any carrier branded Note 5 or S6 will have carrier crapware on it. Plus you're limited to either GSM or CDMA. That's what makes the Nexus, the Moto XPE, and the iPhone 6S/6S+ better automatically. 3. TouchWiz with lollipop is pretty laggy. This is a fact that's proven by many user comments no matter how much you want to dig your head in the dirt and ignore it. That neat feature on the Note 5 where you can take out the S-Pen and write on the screen when it's off is not on the Note 4 despite being capable enough to use it. You've lost. Go back to your hole before you get schooled again.

I have never once voted for myself. I have no doubt you have. The camera is one of the best, if not the best, on a smartphone. What do you mean limited to GSM our CDMA? What other systems do phones ruin on today? If you mean one our the other, then you know even less that I thought. My Note 5 screams through anything. Fast, fluid with virtually no lag (no more than ANY other phone). All while being the most powerful and functional phone there is. The Note 4 was also a great device, that's true. It was the best at the time. It's been surpassed by the Note 5. If I ever do lose, it certainly won't be to a 75 IQ fanboy like you.

I like almost everything NexusX had to say, except no.3. Some of those high-end ones such as the Note 5, 6 Edge+ the V10 doesn't lag at all. There is nothing you can say with the "slow update". No companies will EVER beat Google when it comes to Android update. About laggy OS, let's just say the hardware make those laggy stuffs a non-issue.

Im not saying samsung make bad phones, i Just dont understand people would pay samsung those outrageous prices when there are so many alternatives, remember the note 5 debuted in america for 750+tax? Yet they still bear carrier logos, and only worked on either gsm or cdma while both nexus, moto x and iphone worked on all networks. Universal bands support should be standard feature on future devices now that phone subsidies are being phased out. I will never buy another phone that only works fully on one carrier. I dont care how many cores they have. Because cellular service is what we need and what cost us in the long run As long as Samsung continue to ask macbook prices for pc laptops and make carrier specific phones, ill never buy anything from them

Now, I fully support on this comment as well. I got my Note 5 through T-Mobile in America only because it was $100 off along with free year of Netflix, $50 Samsung Pay rebate and $200 accessories from Otherwise, I had been buying second hand phone (mint condition) on Craigslist, Nexus devices and OnePlus. Unlocked devices makes much more sense for me as well, great/similar specs and cheaper

you got a good deal there, i like the stylus on the note series, the note 5 is the only samsung device that is worth paying a bit extra over other android phones. but there aren't many apps that can take advantage of it. samsung should partner up with adobe/autocad for real productivity apps on mobile devices, they could really build an robust ecosystem that is unique with the stylus and it looks like that is what apple is attempting to do with the ipad pro. too bad they always roll out half-ass gimmicky features that they never follow up with subsequent development (ie eye-tracking browser, touchless swiping, heart rate monitor, the "edge") again they rely too much on carriers to sell their phones in America. it's nice to have note 5 running on tmobile's fast but limited network but it's even better to have a nexus/moto x running on project FI and the countless cheap/ALMOST FREE sprint/tmobile MVNO. I'm currently rocking an nexus 5x on ringplus (sprint MVNO) paying for practically nothing. now i know sprint coverage is spotty, but if i really need good coverage i just need to pop in an AT&T or verizon a simcard with one of their daily pas when i'm in the middle of nowhere. that's kind of flexibility samsung phones cannot provide I just use hangout/google voice as my main phone number, so i have no issue changing my sim-provided number.

" the note 5 is the only samsung device that is worth paying a bit extra over other android phones." NAILED IT! I was discouraged by the absent of the removal battery and SD card slot, but I never keep the same phone more than a year(battery life is not a concern), plus with so many online storage (17GB from Google Drive, 100GB from OneDrive, 50GB from Box). I also purchased a micro USB to USB memory card 64GB for $20 on Amazon for storage Honesty, you nailed it again on the SPen being somewhat gimmicky. Personally, I don't need those "software" tricks, especially I can get most of those "features" in the play store. As for service, I got 5 lines 10GB per line on a family plan, and I am paying $140 plus taxes. Being in Chicago, my service is great here, so I have no complain with price/service. (FYI: T-Mo is offering $120 for 4 lines 10GB per line/ $150 unlimited 4 lines----- CRAZY!)

Pick your poison sprint or a Samsung phone that has poor battery life and overly aggressive memory management.

2. TyrionLannister unregistered

Poor battery life: lmao. Samsung phones were the only annelid phones not plagued by the battery drain caused by sd 810. And RAM management has been fixed with updates. See this:

He's a troll. Ignore him. He's gotta work out his anger about Samsung phones being the best somehow.

A troll calling someone else a troll. #hypocrite

Yes you are also a hypocrite. My Note 5 is still the best large screen phone on the planet. Deal with it.

BTW, I've been I this site since 2009, never once limited for trolling. What's your record?

The S6 and Note 5 didn't use the SD810. Neither phone should have had the issue in the first place especially the Note 5 with its 4GB of ram.
