Samsung has already run out of phones for the ‘Ultimate Test Drive’ iPhone promotion

Looks like Samsung’s latest deal for iPhone users has been a huge hit, as the tech company has already run out of devices to give out due to the overwhelming amount of customers. For only $1, any US-based citizen with an iPhone device and an activated SIM card could visit Samsung’s promotion website and take one of the following devices for a test run: Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S6 edge+. There’s no news as to when more units will become available but for now it would be wise to keep checking their website. It’s definitely interesting to see such a huge interest in switching from an iPhone to a Samsung device, and we’re curious to see how this promotion will continue. Let us know what you think about this deal by leaving a comment.

Also, this promotion is totally pointless. Even if somebody sort of wants to continue with the phone, no one would pay the full retail price to keep the phone when they can get the very same unlocked phone at cheaper price. Moreover, when the trial period is done, there is a very high possibility that they would get the new iphone coming out next month. This will antagonize the early release of galaxy note and edge+.

I had applied for this program and I think I got in. I saw a message that they sent me a device and my card was successfully charged. However, I wasn’t even on actual iphone but I was using ios simulator cause I’m actually using galaxy s6 edge.

Strange, Samsung needs to lure many iPhone users yet they are not thinking about retaining their own.

Get real, the needs of this site is less than 1% of there customer and then many on this site and many other tech site do not need removing battery and sd card and then you all go in about the ir and then Samsung removes it, they removed it due to software links and the ads that come with it as per the post the other day and again most users are on this site, most customer will find it hard to even setup

Totally agree with you, and I believe it’s less than 1%. Samsung can’t please everyone, but they are pleasing the majority. Just too many childish comments on this site.

I FIND THIS UTTERLY DISGUSTING. A PERSON WITH A NOTE 4 OR GALAXY S5 WHO ALREADY PAID AND SUPPORTED SAMSUNG FINANCIALLY PAYING HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS TO BUY SAMSUNG PRODUCTS CANT BE PART OF THIS PROMOTION… BUT PEOPLE WHO NEVER PAID A CENT AND NEVER HELPED SAMSUNG BUT HURT SAMSUNG BUYING FROM THE COMPETITION ARE GIVEN FREE PHONES FOR 30 DAYS. ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING. YET AGAIN SAMSUNG SHOWS THEY HAVE NO RESPECT AT ALL FOR ITS CURRENT USERS. SAMSUNG LOVES TO P**S ON PEOE WHO SUPPORTED THEM AND WHOSE MONEY THEY ALREADY TOOK. NOT ONLY THAT BUT OLD USERS GET LOLLIPOP UPDATES… Read more »

+1 Well said – Samsung never care about their users, they only need money

That shouldn’t bother you, remember, Note 5 has no IR blaster, has no micro sd card slot and has no removable battery.

Instead of attracting more users to use theirs phones probably will be wise to keep the old ones, for when the Android 5.1.1 for the note 4 international version ?
Samsung is treating Note users in Europe as granted, i hope the LG G4 Pro come with the specifications that are being mentioned then i will see, the great marketing strategic of Samsung.

The best part is if lag need sales they need to give up that crap removing battery and sd card reader as it’s nothing them nothing for the sales, it looks like cheap junk

Everyone knows that most US citizens are the stupidest in the world!
They believe in lies that their government tells them and everything that see on the media.
So what is the problem to sell them shiny crap with a lot of advertising???
Obviously this is the new Sammy strategy and it will works for a while until crApple unleash billions of money for advertising their new sh!t.
Pity, pity… shame of you all!

Interesting? Au contraire mon ami … they built an Iphone, they will sell it to Iphone customers; that’s what they were aiming for – Galaxy users, except the “I want the last one” users, have already their trusted devices, or are disappointed by them, as they will most likely buy something else this year. And the die hard users, will not buy it due to the lack of features. Just dress anything nicely, put the price higher than the highest competitor, and you will surprisingly find a category of customers, who will buy it exactly because of that. Look at… Read more »

I don’t think they care. They already started working on GS7 and they will release it earlier next year. The gap between Note 5 release and GS7 release will be narrower. And maybe they will use SD 820 and will bring back the micro sd card slot and IR blaster. But I think the removable battery won’t be back.

Hm, not going by the note 5 and + sales, they good so they doing something right, also the + got the same score on the verge as the note 4 and the note 5 got the same score as the iPhone 6 plus with the reviewer liking it big time, I.e isamsung new phones is all about how the phone runs in 6 months time and my s6 edge with new icon update is the fastest phone going and that only going to happen with the sd card reader removed
