Sammy Offers Galaxy Sweeteners In Bid To Keep Market Share
Australian telcos, primed by Samsung, are offering “sweeteners to Galaxy Note 7 customers” in a bid to prevent them switching to competitors, according to an Australian IT report. The report says Telstra, Optus and Vodafone are all giving customers who agree to recontract on a Samsung device $250 of credit. The Galaxy Note 7 may have been ditched forever, but Samsung still offers the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, Note 5 and S5 devices in the Aussie market.
The report notes that, while the S7 lacks the bigger screen of the Note 7, it does share many other features.
Early indications suggest Australian users are by and large sticking with the Samsung devices, the Oz says. But others note the new very competitive offerings from Apple, Samsung and Google – in the latter case the all-new Pixel – may sneak a significant share of what was the Note 7’s market.
