You'll still get 50 percent off the lease price with a handful of other devices, including older hardware like the iPhone 6, Galaxy S7, G5 or Moto Z Droid. With Sprint Flex, you have the option after 18 months to return your device and upgrade to a new one, pay the remainder in one payment to own it, or continue making six more monthly payments to own it. Now, who in their right mind would abandon a Note 8 they literally just purchased for the "privilege" of leasing an iPhone 8?!
Sprint has launched a free iPhone 8 deal for new and existing subscribers.
As stated in the press release announcing the offer, the first requirement for Sprint's free iPhone 8 deal is that customers will need to trade-in one of select devices. The Galaxy Note 8 is nearly bezel-less and you get the feeling that you have a small tablet.
To recall, the company launched the Galaxy On Nxt past year in October at Rs 18,490. According to Moffett, customers are retaining their phones for longer periods, and therefore, the supply of used phones available in the market declines, which in turn fuels higher prices for used handsets, notes Fortune.
One year later, at one of Samsung's exclusive events, the company presented a video teaser that briefly showed how the foldable device would look like as a phone and a tablet at the same time.
Carriers have been restrained on promotions for the new iPhones, and instead are using their strengths to drive differentiation, said Barclays analysts in a note on Monday.
