The forecasts in the sales of this model are really good, there is even talk that the reserves are 400% more numerous than those obtained at the time with the Galaxy S3. If so, we speak of unmitigated success. Of course, we will have to wait for these data to be confirmed … but everything indicates that the impact will be enormous.
A couple of details that should not be overlooked: apart from all the known specifications of the Samsung Galaxy S4, which are very good, it should not be forgotten that the model that will come to Spain is the one with a processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 (quad-core) and that it is compatible with LTE, which is already indicative of the imminent arrival of this type of connectivity to our country.
The offers that the operators have prepared
Below we indicate what is known about the offers prepared by operators working in Spain for the Samsung Galaxy S4. In them, we indicate the data that is known for now (perhaps by April 27 more will be known). This is what you can find:
This company announced that, apart from integrating a new terminal in all its tariff offers (although it has hardly given information about it), it did announce a really attractive subsidy: the Samsung Galaxy S4 can be purchased for 2€ 6 per month with a stay of 24 months, so the cost of the terminal is 624 euros plus VAT. Therefore, an interesting option, there is no doubt.
The orange operator puts into play a subsidy option in which, paying € 59, it is possible to get this phone for 24 monthly payments of 25 euros each. A good choice. Additionally, it has been announced that there will be two rate options in which the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be present:
Ballena 55 rate: terminal cost 169 euros, plus a monthly fee of 55 €. Includes 3 GB of data 24 hours a day, plus 500 in calls and 1,000 SMS. The second SIM without monthly fees.
Delfín 60 rate: terminal cost € 169, plus a monthly fee of € 60. Includes calls to national landlines and mobiles (and international landlines) for 24 hours a day at € 0. You have to add 1.5 GB of data at maximum speed and 1,000 SMS every day.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 with Vodafone can be obtained from € 0 and with a stay of 24 months with some of its rates. These are the options that have been known at the moment:
Red3: you pay 67.95 per month for the first six months. Next, it goes to € 90 per month until the 24 months are completed. The phone with this option comes out by 0 euros.
Red2: The monthly cost is 52.5 euros for the first six months, after that the cost rises to 70 euros per month. The terminal would have an initial cost of 49 euros.
Network: in the first six months the cost is 41.25 euros, which will go to 55 euros after the initial promotion. The price to get the Samsung Galaxy S4 is 99 euros.
Base 3: the Samsung Galaxy S4 costs 199 euros, the rate consisting of a monthly fee of 33.75 euros in the chosen promotion period, being 45 euros per month after this.
Base2: the phone costs 249 euros, and the monthly fee is reduced to 26.25 euros per month in promotion. After this, they pay 35 euros per month until they are 24 months old.
Base 3: the terminal costs 249 euros and you pay € 21.75 per month for the first six months, reaching 29 euros per month thereafter.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is available in four of the rates offered by the operator. All have a stay of 24 months. There are two forms of payment, one fractional only available for portability -from contract to contract- which can be € 15, 20 or € 25 without having to pay anything at first (to which the corresponding rate that is selected must be added), or make a single payment of € 600 – here you can add new registrations – to which the chosen rate must be added.
