As Apple gears up to launch the iPhone X in South Korea, its arch-nemesis Samsung has decided to allow iPhone users to test their latest flagships for a month. The Korean giant has launched its Galaxy Experience Program in its home country to lure users into trying the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note 8 without having to buy it if they don’t like the experience. But, it doesn’t come without a handful of conditions.
If you are an iPhone user and want to be a part of the Galaxy Experience Program, you’ll need to apply for the program online from November 21 until November 27. The Korean giant will then choose 10,000 interested users until November 30, asking them to shell out a nominal participation fee of $45 (about 50,000 Korean Won).
Next, you’ll need to pick up your Galaxy S8/S8 Plus or Note 8 by visiting Samsung Digital Plaza between December 1 and 11. The device won’t be handed to you for free. You will have to purchase the device for the selling price from the South Korean giant but can return the device once the month-long testing period is complete. If you’re not planning to use the Galaxy device any longer, you can return the same and get a refund for the device.
The participation fee will be non-refundable if you’ll return the Galaxy Note 8 or Galaxy S8 you purchased for the testing period. However, the fee will be reimbursed if you decide to keep using the device instead of picking the iPhone X. You may also receive freebies such as JBL Go Bluetooth speakers if you decide on sticking with the Samsung Galaxy device.
The Galaxy S8 and Note 8 are Samsung’s pride and include top-notch specifications you’d want from any flagship in 2017. So, if you had been considering a switch to the Samsung Galaxy S8 or Note 8, then it is a perfect opportunity for you to get a hands-on experience with Android without having to shell out money to purchase a new device.
