Did those folding Samsung Galaxy smartphones catch your eye when they hit the market last year?
Now, you can test drive either the Galaxy Z Flip 5G or Galaxy Z Fold2 5G at a discounted price with Samsung’s new “Buy and Try” promotion. Between now and April 1, consumers can get either device – discounted at least $250 – and use them for up to 100 days. If you aren’t happy, you can return them.
The Galaxy Z Flip 5G, brought to market six months after the Galaxy Z Flip smartphone in February 2020, was initially priced at $1,449. It has a 6.9-inch screen and is now priced at $649.99 with trade-in on Samsung.com.

At the time it was released, USA TODAY tech reviewer Edward C. Baig described the Z Flip as having “a sturdier feel” than its predecessor, the Galaxy Fold, and gave Samsung props for continuing “to bend the rules of how a smartphone looks and functions.”
The Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, released in September for $1,999, has a 6.2-inch front screen and unfolds to reveal a 7.6-inch middle screen. It’s now priced at $1,449.99 with trade-in on Samsung.com.
USA TODAY tech contributor Bob O’Donnell described the device as “the world’s first pocketable 2-in-1 device,” back in September 2020.
