New Samsung Smartphones to Come with $300 Worth of Services


Samsung has a long tradition of bundling several services and value add-ons with its premium smartphones via its Galaxy Gifts program and the newly unveiled Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5 aren’t going to be exceptions.

The apps and services include everything that Samsung believes the two devices will be: from productivity power houses to fun devices (there are games as well) to looking after your health. Also, that 100 GB of free OneDrive storage we talked about is included and will last a full 2 years.

Here is a full list of all the bundled apps and services:
