The holidays are quickly coming upon us and T-Mobile has already jumped on the sleigh. Starting Friday, November 21st, they are offering $100 discount on the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3. This is not one of those mail-in rebates or a $100 on a T-Mobile credit card. This is out and out a full $100 discount, already programmed into the system, whether you are attempting to activate a new purchase or upgrading to either of these two devices. T-Mobile says that the sales staff should receive their Samsung Winter Sale store materials on November 19th. As of now, the discount is set to run a limited time through November 30. Leaving just nine days to bargain shop for the Galaxy S5 or the Galaxy Note 3. The message (shown below) is what was sent out by T-Mobile showing that Pay-in-Advance customers must be on a minimum $35 monthly plan to qualify.
One thing that is unclear, where the Samsung Galaxy S5 is concerned is whether the $100 will come off its current price of $609.60, making it $509.60. Or if it will be off its pre-sale price of $660 and bringing it down to $560. The real deal is the Galaxy Note 3 which is currently priced as $516.96 and with the $100 discount will drop it to $416.96. Making the monthly payment only $17.37 per month on EIP. Quite a buy for one of the best smartphones on the market.
The Galaxy S5 is a great device, solid and comfortable to hold. With a 5.2-inch Full HD display with 432 pixels-per-inch (PPI) and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core clocked at 2.5GHz. There is also 2GB of RAM and either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage with a microSD card to add an additional 128GB of storage. It has an excellent 16MP camera with auto-focus and LED flash, along with a 2MP front-facing camera (FFC) for social selfies and video chatting. Power is provided with a 2800mAh battery and it has a fingerprint scanner, IR Blaster and heart rate monitor built-in. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 packs a 5.7-inch Full HD display with 386 PPI and the S-Pen is cradled inside its personal silo in the device. It uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor clocked at 2.3GHz with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot to add up to an additional 128GB of storage. It sports a 13MP camera with auto-focus and LED Flash and an FFC of 2.0MP for social selfies and video chatting. Power is provided by a 3200mAh battery and can be charged very quickly with its microUSB 3.0 plug and Quick Charge provided by the Qualcomm processor.
