Walmart also announced that the iPhone 5C has been reduced from $45 to $29. The reduced prices are expected to last for at least 30 days, reports The Los Angeles Times.

Walmart is likely dropping the price of the Galaxy S4 to prepare for the launch of the Galaxy S5. Samsung showed off the new Galaxy phone at the Mobile World Congress in February and it’s set to hit shelves in April.

Initial thoughts on the Galaxy S5 were split. Some who got their hands on the early previews said it’s “bigger, faster, and more powerful than ever,” while others said it’s a “run-of-the-mill Galaxy S flagship.”
