Saturn and MediaMarkt have reissued a bargain evergreen: The Samsung Galaxy S10 is available in combination with a contract in the Vodafone or Telekom network, 6 GB LTE volume and telephony flat rate for 26.99 euros per month and one-off 44. 94 euros. A special treat: An Xbox One X including GTA V is included for free. The calculated profit in this contract is over 200 euros!
It took a while, but now it’s finally happening again: MediaMarkt and Saturn are finally hitting Xboxen as a free gift for mobile phone contracts among the people. If you can use both the cell phone and the console, you even make a calculated profit. We’ll show you how. But first, about the devices and the contract.
The mobile phone: Samsung Galaxy S10
Samsung’s 2019 top model is still not from the old iron, but is in excellent health – both in terms of performance and update supply. Bad tongues would even claim that Samsung is weakening somewhat with this year’s S20 generation, making the S10 series even more interesting. In a few words: great design, nice and compact, great camera, crazy display, good storage and performance. Weaknesses? Battery life more so medium and the fingerprint sensor in the glass is not the real deal. There was a great rating of 88% for the Samsung Galaxy S10 in the GIGA test, other media judge similarly.
The contract: m-d Green LTE 6 GB in the Vodafone or Telekom network
Whether you opt for the contract in the Telekom or Vodafone network is basically a matter of taste, because the terms of the contract are almost identical. Advantage for the contract in the Vodafone network: A little more LTE speed. Advantage for the contract in the telecom network: VoLTE and Wifi Calling for better voice quality. Caution: Unfortunately, both tariffs do not include SMS flat rates, you pay 0.19 euros per message. So prefer to use WhatsApp.
Here are the hard facts:
- Provider: Mobilcom-Debitel
- Network: Vodafone or Telekom
- Tariff: Green LTE 6 or 4 + 2 GB
- Minimum contract period is 24 months
- Allnet flat for telephony in all German networks
- SMS: 0.19 euros in German networks
- 6 GB LTE data volume (Vodafone network: max. 50 MBit / s, Telekom network: max .: 21.6 MBit / s)
- Wifi calling and VoLTE supported with the tariff in the telecom network
- freenet hotspot flat

- Basic fee per month: EUR 26.99
- Additional hardware payment: 1 euro
- Provision fee: one-off fee of 39.99 euros
- Shipping costs: 4.95 euros
The console: Xbox One X
The Xbox One X has more power than any other console of the current generation. That means: Cross-platform games optimized for One X almost always look better on Xbox One X than on PS4 Pro. Even if Sony fans like to lead the better exclusives of “their” platform, Microsoft also has a lot to offer with the Gears series, Forza, Halo and other franchises. In addition, there is only the ingenious Xbox Game Pass game subscription. If you are already flirting with the next generation of consoles, you can take it easy, because the Xbox Series X is fully backward compatible with the One X, many titles are released for both platforms and only have to be bought once. Here’s the Xbox One X by the way in the white version.
The game: GTA V
You don’t have to say anything about GTA V, do you? Okay, the newest part of the gangster epic, as always in close contact with pop culture, staged brutally and over the top. GTA V is still a lot of fun today, even though … wait a minute, seriously? … is almost 7 years old. At the time, the GTA V test gave it full marks – 10/10 and the conclusion “a masterpiece”. Should have played. Present here in the Premium Edition.
The offer: Is it worth it?
Foam: Over the minimum contract period, you pay the total of 692.70 euros in basic costs in this contract (24 × 26.99 euros + one-time 39.99 euros connection fee + one-time 1 euro device charge + one-time 3.95 euros shipping).
In contrast, we keep the value of the hardware. According to the idealo price comparison, the Xbox One X online currently costs at least 319 euros. For the Samsung Galaxy S10 you pay at least 569 euros (reputable dealers, including shipping costs). GTA V costs at least 24.85 euros. Makes a total hardware value of 912.95 euros.
In other words: You make a mathematical profit with this bundle of over 200 euros compared to buying the products individually. There’s also a really useful cell phone contract. So should you take the deal? Yes, you should.
