Samsung is big on offering free stuff with their devices. Not always so much in the physical sense, but through software and app subscriptions that you can use alongside your new device, or any other android devices you might carry around with you. For the last couple of years Samsung has been offering a free two years of extra Dropbox storage-50GB extra-when users purchased one of their flagship smartphones like the Galaxy S3 and 4, or the Note 2 and Note 3. This year we’re seeing them offer all kinds of bundled and free apps packages with their new line of Pro tablets, and don’t think that for one second that Samsung is going to leave out its new flagship device the Galaxy S5.
Yes when it comes to enticing consumers and making the deal of buying a new phone just a little bit sweeter, Samsung is no stranger to the practice. This year Galaxy S5 buyers will have access to all kinds of app subscriptions and goodies. If you live in the UK like our resident Tom Dawson who is sure to be picking up a Galaxy S5, you’ll not only get the free extra 50GB of Dropbox storage that has become a trademark with buying a new Galaxy device, but you’ll also get three months free of Evernote, and three free months of LinkedIn premium. Going to be taking that new device out for a run? Make sure to use the free 1-year membership to the Endomondo community-I use the Endomondo Pro app for all my bike rides and running to track my routes and map them with GPS, it’s seriously the best fitness app that I’ve used-or you could use other apps like RunKeeper, MapMyFitness or Skimble.
The US Galaxy S5 buyers get pretty much the same app deals, with discounts on apps like Evernote, Bloomberg Businessweek, Paypal, Box, the free 50GB of Dropbox storage, and a handful of others. We would assume that Endomondo is included for US buyers as well because the app itself isn’t region specific, but there was no mention of it so if you’re interested you’ll just have to wait till you pick yours up and check it out for yourself. Once you have your shiny new Galaxy S5 in hand, tap on the Samsung apps icon and navigate to Samsung gifts, which is where you’ll find all the apps that Samsung is offering for free that you can choose to download, or not download. Does this make some of you even more excited about buying Samsung’s new flagship device?
