Samsung wants iPhone users to sell their loyalty for $1 only

This is no joke.  If you are an iPhone user and got a $1, you have the great opportunity to test drive Samsung's latest phone models namely the Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+, and the Galaxy Note 5.  

The Korean electronics company on Friday presented the "Ultimate Test Drive" which is a program that will give iPhone users only the privilege to rent one of the new Samsung smartphones within a month for just a $1.

Participants will receive a kit with the smartphone of their choice including an activated SIM card, and the step-by-step guide.   After a month, you have to make a decision either to buy your Samsung chosen device or return it in favor of your iPhone. 

The move comes as Samsung struggles to compete with Apple's iPhone.  Samsung was the no. 1 smartphone seller during Q2 with a 21.9% of the market share, according to Gartner.

However, it is a drop from 26.2% during the same time last year.  The company sold almost 72 million smartphones in the second quarter compared to 76 million units of last year.

Samsung sales dropped sharply by 49% in the country, while Apple's have dramatically increased to 68%.  Samsung and Apple have long been bitter rivals and had recently argued about a patent dispute over certain phone and tablet models.

So, if you are an iPhone user who is curious as a cat about the competition between these two giant gadgets companies, your loyalty will be tested in a month.  What you will get is a month's worth of data without handing over your iPhone and that made you having two different phones to use which is a great deal.

If you want to try Samsung's Ultimate Test Drive, you can visit from your iPhone's browser, then select your carrier (AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint or Verizon) and pick which phone you would like to try out.
