T-Mobile's Father's Day promotion features the Galaxy S8 and LG V20

If you’re still searching for a Father’s Day that won’t break the bank, T-Mobile has your back. On Friday, June 16, the self-coined Un-carrier kicked off a buy-one-get-one-free deal on top-end phones from Samsung and LG.

For a limited time, T-Mobile is offering new and existing customers a discounted — and free, in some cases — Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus, and LG G6 or V20. The steps are a little complicated — you’ll have to purchase both devices on T-Mobile’s no-interest Equipment Installment Plan (EIP), add one voice line with unlimited data, activate both phones on T-Mobile’s One plan, and submit a mail-in rebate request online. But once you do all that, you’ll be rewarded with a prepaid MasterCard in the mail for the device of lesser value.

Here’s T-Mobile’s current pricing for the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Plus, LG G6, and LG V20:

 Phone Monthly pricing Total cost
Galaxy S8 $30 down, $30 per month for 24 months $750
Galaxy S8 Plus $70 down, $30 per month for 24 months $790 ($60 off retail)
LG G6 $20 down, $20 per month for 24 months $500 ($150 off retail)
LG V20 $0 down, $20 per month for 24 months $480

The deal isn’t without strings attached, to be fair. If you cancel service, you’ll have to pay full price, and the minimum payment period is 24 months. But as long as you don’t miss a bill and pay tax on the phones at purchase, you’re good to go.

You can take advantage by heading to T-Mobile’s promotions hub and entering the code 17JUNESAMBOGO (if you bought a Galaxy phone) or 17JUNELGBOGO (if you bought an LG device).

The new BOGO promo dovetails with Amazon’s other killer phone offer: A buy-one-get-one-free iPhone deal. Customers who opt to pay for a 256GB iPhone 7 with T-Mobile’s Equipment Installment plan get a free iPhone SE in the form of a $400 rebate.

T-Mobile is knocking some Benjamins off its monthly plans, too. This summer, new and existing customers can sign up for a 4-line unlimited text, talk, and 4G LTE data plan for $35 each (including taxes and fees) after bill credits and with AutoPay enabled.

The new promotions, discounts, and sales follow T-Mobile’s “Thankiversary.” In June, the Magenta carrier launched an event celebrating the one-year anniversary of T-Mobile Tuesdays, a weekly promotion that gifts customers free movie tickets, ridesharing credits, takeout pizza, and more. It launched a Twitter contest — The T-Mobile “Thankathon” — that let ten eligible T-Mobile, Verizon, and AT&T customers bid for “millions of dollars” in prizes, including Lyft tickets, Baskin-Robbins ice cream, gas for a year, a $2,000 StubHub gift card, and a trip for four to any event at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The freebies won’t stop there. This summer, T-Mobile subscribers get four movie tickets for $4, free Baskin-Robbins ice cream up to $4 in value, and a Baskin-Robbins sundae for $1 when they buy one at the regular price.

“Thanks to Un-carrier benefits like T-Mobile Tuesdays, unlimited data with taxes and fees included and the nation’s fastest LTE network, T-Mobile now tops customer satisfaction scores and net promoter scores, and Un-carrier customers are more likely to recommend T-Mobile,” T-Mobile said.

Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is the king of Samsung’s tablet lineup

Samsung finally launched its newest trio of Galaxy Tab S8 tablets during its Samsung Unpacked February event, and all of them turned out to be mostly in line with what we were expecting.

While many buyers will be happy with the Galaxy Tab S8 or S8 Plus, the S8 Ultra is the company's most premium option and is certain to turn the heads of power users. Its noticeably larger size is an attractive feature all by itself, but Samsung hasn't stopped the upgrades there. The S8 Ultra is also packed with a variety of internal improvements over its smaller siblings and is clearly geared toward productivity and people who work from home. These improvements will come at a higher asking price, of course.

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S8 and S8 Plus have few compromises

After months of rumors, speculation, and leaks, Samsung has finally revealed its new Galaxy Tab S8 lineup at Samsung Unpacked. As we've been expecting, the trio of new tablets includes the Galaxy Tab S8, Galaxy Tab S8 Plus, and Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, with the latter bringing some hefty upgrades over the two smaller and more affordable models. The S8 and S8 Plus provide plenty of power in an attractive package, though, for those who don't need the Ultra's considerably larger screen and internal storage space.

Leaked Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 renders show sleek design similar to the S7
Samsung Galaxy Tab A7.

Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Tab S8 has just leaked in new renders. Coming from prominent leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer, more commonly known as OnLeaks on Twitter, these renders look a lot like the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 that preceded it.

Despite Android's lackluster reputation in the tablet market, Samsung has worked hard to build up a respectable slate of tablets. These include both the Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7 FE in recent times. With high-resolution displays, stylus support, and clean design, these tablets manage to match and rival the iPad on a pure hardware basis, though the available app library and screen optimization need work.
