Let’s start with Buy and Try.
Buy and Try is an extension of the returnability. That’s right, Samsung allows whoever buys the smartphone in cash, can return the equipment up to 60 days. The idea is to allow consumers who still have doubts about the features of the equipment to try it out and if they are not satisfied with the purchase, they can return the smartphone and receive the money in full. However, it should be noted that, obviously, the smartphone will have to be in perfect condition.
The other model, and this one much more innovative, is a renting model.

As could not be missing, is the possibility of paying in installments, without interest, through Santander Consumer Finance, which offers financing for up to 36 months without interest for both folding equipment.
The specifications of both devices follow, with the Galaxy Z Fold 3 having a price that starts at 1,859.90 euros, while the Galaxy Z Flip 3 has a base value of 1,099.90 euros.
