Deals: Samsung Galaxy S24 series gets cheaper, Galaxy A55 and A35 prices drop too

Peter, 12 May 2024

The Samsung Galaxy S24 series launched to much fanfare with its AI-centric One UI 6.1. If you skipped the pre-order and early day deals, it’s not too late to pick up an S24 – the flagship trio is between €80 and €145 off on Amazon Germany.

This means that the base Samsung Galaxy S24 is €820, though that is for the model with only 128GB storage. Unless you are coming from an iPhone, this will feel tight, so consider getting the 256GB model for €60 more.

Whichever one you pick, it will only have 8GB of RAM. The Samsung Galaxy S24+ has 12GB of RAM this year and its storage starts at 256GB, making the base model much more viable.

The Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra is the best of the bunch, certainly where cameras are concerned. The S24+ caught up in display quality (LTPO, QHD+), but it has no answer for the 200MP main and 5x 50MP periscope of the Ultra.

With Samsung’s extended software support these phones can be with you for the next 7 years and by that time you may be glad that you spent more on hardware now. And even if you don’t plan on keeping them that long, the phones come with an extended 3-year warranty (for residents of Germany).

If the S-line phones are too pricey, the A-series is the one to look at. The Samsung Galaxy A55 is a fairly premium device with an aluminum frame and dual Gorilla Glass (Victus+ on the front). The Exynos 1480 is efficient and powerful enough to drive the 6.6” FHD+ 120Hz OLED display. The A-phones have microSD slots for easy storage expansion, unlike the S-line models, but they lack wireless charging and their water resistance is IP67 instead of IP68 (not that it should make a difference in practice).

The Samsung Galaxy A35 has the same display as the A55 (with GG Victus+), though the frame is plastic and you get the older and not quite as good Exynos 1380. The prices for the 128GB A35 and A55 are slightly higher than they were in mid-April, but the 256GB models are slightly cheaper than they used to be. This is especially important for the A35 as the storage upgrade also brigs 2 extra gigs of RAM. The A55 and A35 also have an extended warranty, though it’s 30 months (2.5 years).

Finally, you can grab a pair of Samsung Galaxy Buds FE for €67 – that is almost 40% off their MSRP. They are nothing fancy, but they have active noise cancellation and support the Galaxy AI features (like the Interpreter mode).

Not all of them gets a lot of proffit. Many things eats it.

820€ for S24 ??? I bought mine in normal store, for 715€ a few weeks after its release...

Zenfone 10 is not a bad choice, if S24 were different I would had chosen it, but: 1. Asymmetric design (front camera not centered, ugly). 2. 20:9 ratio vs 19.5 screen. I prefer wider screen. Hell, I wish we'd go back to 16:9. I had a &quo...
