If the latest report about the Galaxy S8 is to be believed, then Samsung may offer early adopters a moneyback guarantee! This is something that is unheard of in the world of smartphones itself, let alone in case of a Samsung flagship product. According to the source, the return will be unconditional and all eligible users will be able to return their Galaxy S8 or S8+ for a full refund. What is even more astonishing is the fact that the refund eligibility will extend to all handsets for a period of three months from the date of purchase!
This is of course a marketing strategy but it is one that is truly radical, provided of course, the report holds true. This opens up the question; what if people misuse the opportunity? Besides, after three months, what if someone just wants to get a new phone by returning their old handset? The risky venture is a direct result of the Note 7 disaster and the subsequent bad reputation that the incident gave Samsung. If it is true, then we are really interested to know which will be the regions where Samsung will unleash the offer.
