The Samsung galaxy note two is priced at 37,500 with this discount you will have to pay only Rs. 27,500; moreover you can pay the amount in 6 monthly installments, thus costing you Rs. 4,584 for the next six months. On the other hand if you decide to buy the new Samsung Galaxy s4 which is currently priced at RS 40,300, you will have to spend just Rs 3,358 for the next twelve month as per Samsungs EMI scheme.

In this offer you will get an instant discount of 5000 rupees at the Samsung store after you fill in a form regarding your old phones details.
