If there's one thing the last few months have taught us, it's that savvy consumers need never pay full price for a Samsung flagship. Hardly a week goes by when we don't see some new low on the Galaxy S7 or its Edgy brother, and this week's deal is courtesy of eBay. That's where you can find a Galaxy S7 Duos (that's the dual-SIM version popular outside the US) for just $489.99, the lowest price we've seen yet on any new dual-SIM S7 variant.
This phone is new, not refurbished, so it should come with the standard one year warranty from Samsung. The seller doesn't say which specific model this is, but the GSM-LTE bands make it look like G930FD, which comes with an Exynos processor and 32GB of storage. That can be augmented with one MicroSD card, unless you use both SIM slots - the single-tray expansion design can't hold two SIMs and a memory card at the same time. It should work on all GSM carriers.
Shipping is free in the continental US - strangely it's not available at all in Alaska or Hawaii. Other shipping locations with a surcharge are as follows:
Canada, United Kingdom, Denmark, Romania, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Finland, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Estonia, Australia, Greece, Portugal, Cyprus, Slovenia, Japan, China, Sweden, Korea, South, Indonesia, Taiwan, South Africa, Thailand, Belgium, France, Hong Kong, Ireland, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Italy, Germany, Austria, Russian Federation, Israel, Mexico, New Zealand, Singapore, Switzerland, Norway, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Croatia, Republic of, Brazil, Costa Rica, Barbados, Bangladesh, Bermuda, Brunei Darussalam, Bolivia, Ecuador, Egypt, French Guiana, Guernsey, Gibraltar, Guadeloupe, Iceland, Jersey, Jordan, Cambodia, Cayman Islands, Liechtenstein, Sri Lanka, Luxembourg, Monaco, Macau, Martinique, Maldives, Nicaragua, Oman, Peru, Pakistan, Paraguay, Reunion, Philippines, Antigua and Barbuda, Aruba, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Saint Kitts-Nevis, Saint Lucia, Montserrat, Turks and Caicos Islands
Normally we'd instruct you to act quickly on a deal this good, but to be honest, the Galaxy S7 gets discounted so often that there's really no rush. It will probably drop another ten or twenty dollars when it goes on sale again next month.
