The Samsung Smart Trade programme, which allows Samsung mobile phone users in the country to exchange their old phones for brand new, has witnessed more customers.
The on-going promotion is taking place at selected authorised Samsung dealer shops and it is available for selected Samsung Smartphone models as well as other selected brands.
Reports from some of the Samsung authorized shops indicate that numerous people have taken this opportunity to barter their old phones for new ones.
Jaspreet Singh, Director for Handheld Products at Samsung stated that “We have realized that sometimes it is difficult for people to buy new phones not because they don’t want to, but because they find it difficult to get new funds to buy a completely new phone when they already have one. This promotion therefore gives them an easy way out as well as the perfect opportunity to carry the latest by trading in their old phones, top up and receive brand new ones.”
Devices up for trade are graded on current condition, quoted and discounted based on three grading categories: perfect, good or non-functional/broken. Each grading category has explanatory definitions that allow for an accurate value to be attributed to the device that is being traded.
Customers can get a value of up to GHc1,000 for devices traded in to acquire the latest Samsung Galaxy S5 or other Samsung devices including the, Galaxy S4, Note 3, Note 3 neo and Note 10.1.
