Galaxy S6’s $699 price point outed by T-Mobile?

IMG_5077

T-Mobile is running a Galaxy S6 launch competition, just like it did last year with the Galaxy S5. Customers can pre-register to hear when the phones are available, and in the process enter to win a Galaxy S6 among other Samsung goodies. The grand prices is a collection of Sammy-made gadgets worth over $3,500 including a curved TV, Gear S smart watch, wireless charging pad, Galaxy S6 Edge, earphones and a sound bar.

Over four weeks there are weekly prizes too. Each week until the end of March, the company is giving away a Galaxy S6. And – as with any sweepstakes giveaway – the carrier has had to declare how much the gift is worth. Perhaps outing the S6’s price in the process. And it’s not cheap.

According to the giveaway terms, the S6 is worth $699. Now, we don’t know which storage model this is. Samsung announced that it plans to release 32, 64 and 128GB capacity models. But if it’s the 32GB model, I would not be surprised at all.

Have you pre-registered for the device yet?

    Just entered, Hope I win!!!!!!!

    • 9to5Slavery

      Good. You can have a house of samsung mania lol.

  • dtam

    if it actually is a $699 price point, that would be so dumb for Samsung. #1, they would be pricing it higher than a 16 gb Iphone 6, #2, it would be the same price as the Note 4

  • Jeffrey Wang

    Seriously? The iPhone 6 costs $649 and although the storage is 16GB, not 32GB, this price is a big factor for many people and will probably cause people to buy iPhones or HTCs. The price is certainly not worth the lack of an SD card slot or Samsung’s subpar Android.

  • VG

    I wonder what the S6 Edge will cost?

    • dtam

      +$100 at least. note edge was $100 more than the note 4, and the s6 has two edges

  • Dark enV

    If this is true this is truly a dumb move on Samsung’s part. Yes the iPhone is 16GB for $50 less but what about the 64GB and 128GB models? $799 and $899? That’d be $50 more for the same storage capacities as the iPhone 6. Not to mention the HTC One M9 will probably run for $599 to $649 and it will have 32GB of storage as well as an SD card slot. If this is true and I was looking at sticking with Samsung I’d just go with the Note 4. Right now it’s on sale for $699 and it has 32GB plus an SD card slot. Samsung is trying so hard to be like Apple, I’m an Apple guy but the thing is Apple has been doing it like this since the beginning so I’m not super bummed when I hear we have no removable battery or SD card slot since it’s always been that way. Samsung has had both those things on their phones since the first Galaxy S and now they’re taking it away and are wanting to charge more than Apple does. Yes the S6 looks like a great phone (a lot like an iPhone in some aspects) but what they’re doing just makes no sense to me if you’re wanting to get more sales after you took a drop last year after the S5.

    • 9to5Slavery

      Samsung logic

  • pda96

    I’d rather get the N4 for that price. The S5 is $499 or less at the moment. No need to buy now. I can wait.

    • TmoSamsungMan

      If only the note4 had specs like this has plus sd and battery huh

  • SEBA

    Apple and Samsung are going crazy with their prices, it’s a phone!

    • monkeybutts

      A phone with more power than a cheap $200 computer.

      • SEBA

        But much less power then $500 computer

        • 9to5Slavery

          Mine loads webpages faster and has HTML 5 viewable on most sites compared to my computer with no flash.

        • Jimmy James

          Huh? No way. If you buy a new computer with a new i5 processor, not even close when you load mobile pages on your desktop computer or vice versa.

        • 9to5Slavery

          i5? lol.

        • Noor

          Then your computer sucks :p

        • 9to5Slavery

          Actually my computer is fast. Faster than yours

        • Noor

          So you have a computer faster than mines with an overclocked i7-4790k and overclocked SLI GTX 970’s and you are claiming that a phone can load web pages faster? I’m not even going to start on how much of a stupid troll you are :p

        • 9to5Slavery

          Well I guess since you put your stats up there, it is not faster than yours. Although mobile devices load pretty fast already.

        • 9to5Slavery

          Well I guess since you put your stats up there, it is not faster than yours. Although mobile devices load pretty fast already. You’re pretty quick to call someone a troll. I guess that says how adolescent you can be.

        • Noor

          If I offended you, then I must apologize. Sometimes I forget to distinguish between peaceful comments and war zones on the internet.

        • bob90210

          Then buy the $500 computer if it suits your needs. If you don’t need a computer in your pocket, then the $500 computer is a much better deal.

    • bob90210

      If you don’t like the price, then don’t buy it.

      • SEBA

        Don’t eat yellow snow

        • bob90210

          Judging by the comments in in post, I don’t think people understand that they don’t have to buy these phones.

          No one complains about the price of solid gold toilets because they know they need a toilet, just not a solid gold one. However, they seem to forget that when it comes to phones. Most of us need a phone, but most of us do not need the latest and greatest.

    • TmoSamsungMan

      Apple and Samsung are gong crazy having bastard kids everywhere.

  • JCass

    So pricing a 32gb S6 a little higher than a 16gb I Phone 6 model isn’t expected? Double the storage for an extra $50 isn’t bad. Now if it was the same build quality as the S5 I’d be confused, but the premium upgrades they made make it a bit easier to justify.

  • Qbancelli

    The N6 wasn’t expensive after all, lol

    • Mirad77

      and the fact that the specs of Nexus 6 still holds strong.

    • HeatFan786

      Relative to the other Nexus devices it was “lol.”

  • ImHomeNow

    It looks just like an iPhone in every way possible including the OS.

    • 9to5Slavery

      Sorta

  • hanfeedback

    I dont know, there seems to be good phones with really nice specs for half or a little less than half. Yes the build quality is not the same but for the best bang for your buck there are really nice options.

  • Derrick

    If the price is legit I’ll just go with the m9. I understand there is EIP but still these phone prices are getting crazy. But hey someone will buy it.

    • monkeybutts

      You could always wait for a sale most android phones have a sale shortly after launch.

      • dtam

        you still only save $50 or so. what we really need is a google nexus 5.1 or a oneplus two that they make enough of, or some xiaomi’s to come over. even if you don’t like the phones, at least that will drive up competition

  • Meh Meherson

    Not touching the S6 because of the sealed unit issue. If the note 5 does not allow for interchangeable backings/microSD cards/batteries, then I’m going to snag a note 4 and be done with samsung until someone else comes out with a flagship device w/stylus that doesnt take away hallmark device options.

    • 9to5Slavery

      What sealed unit issue?

      • NotSoldYet

        Cant take the battery out, no SD slot.

        • 9to5Slavery

          Isn’t that what everybody who is b*tching, b*tching about?

      • Meh Meherson

        totally closed phone. no removable back, no micro SD, no removable battery without going through great lengths.

    • NotSoldYet

      I agree. I was looking at Note 4’s yesterday. Not sure I can deal with the size.

      • Dark enV

        To be honest you’d get use to the size pretty quick. I upgraded from an iPhone 5S to a iPhone 6 Plus and I was very worried about the size as well but after using for about a week I can’t imagine having a smaller phone now. I absolutely love it. The Note 4 is very similar in size, slightly wider I believe. Plus the S pen is very useful.

      • watkins

        My sister said the same thing jumping from an s5 and now she can’t go back to anything smaller. You’ll love it

    • dtam

      when the S6 doesn’t sell as well as Samsung had hoped, they will go back to microSD/removable battery. It will probably sell better than the S5, but not as much as S3 or S4.

  • HeatFan786

    I think a 32 GB iPhone 6S would cost less than the GS6 MSRP at launch. Apple can ditch the 16 GB model and undercut the S6.

    • SEBA

      Apple see, Apple do. Everyone already knows that.

      • Dark enV

        There’s no doubt in my mind that Apple will have the iPhone 6S with 32GB and up. There’s a reason they didn’t do it with the 6 which sucks for us but was genius on their part. The majority of people went ahead and upgraded to the 64GB model because 16 just isn’t enough anymore, so if anybody planned on upgrading down the line even if they launch a 32GB model for the 6S and up nobody who has 64GB now will downgrade their storage, so now they’re kind of locked in to that second tier where Apple sees additional profit. If they had launched a 32GB model the majority of people would have gone for that instead and Apple wouldn’t see as much profit if they had done that. Again sucks for the consumer who upgraded to the 6 but it was totally genius on Apple’s end

        • HeatFan786

          Works out for me though if I go buy an iPhone 6S+. I got the 5C mad cheap for $200. I had skeptical opinions on them from before, but using it for about a month showed me why they’re popular and good phones. If I ditch Samsung (mainly for price, $750 vs $800), I would consider the 6S+. I am excited for the next gen products though.

        • Dark enV

          Yeah for those who didn’t upgrade to a 6 this past year will benefit by this getting 32GB as the introductory storage for sure. I just didn’t care and upgraded to a 6 Plus 128GB

        • Jay Holm

          How much was a 128GB 6 Plus?

        • Dark enV

          The cost of the phone is $949 but for me I spent about $450 out of pocket cause T-Mobile screwed up my order multiple times and they game me $100 off the phone then an additional $100 because of another issue and I sold my 5S for $350

    • bob90210

      Apple does not complete on price.

      • HeatFan786

        Nobody said they will. Their price point just happens to be lower than Samsung since Samsung raised their price point $100 or so.

        • bob90210

          You said it. “Apple can ditch the 16 GB model and undercut the S6” which means that price something low to drive out the competition. So if Apple did undercut Samsung, they would be competing on price.

          Unless you’re talking about men’s haircuts.

    • KingCobra

      Apple isn’t going to make a 32GB 6S. Did you see how much they increased their ASP by removing the 32GB option and getting more people to buy the 64GB and 128GB iPhone 6? 16GB will remain the entry level size for profit reasons.

  • Peter Blood

    $700? I can’t afford this, so I need to win a prize to get into this rarefied upper crust.

    • HeatFan786

      Luckily, T-Mobile’s JUMP plan and down payments w/ zero interest allows customers to get the latest phones without paying up front all at once.

      • Eric

        Yeah but let’s do the math. $699 total means $29 per month. With JUMP, this adds $10, bringing the total per month to almost $40! Add that to the $20 unlimited data I have, that’s $60 per month right there. Then add that to my base plan. T-Mobile suddenly becomes VERY expensive……..

        • Jay Holm

          Having truly unlimited high speed data is worth it to me, and I am very happy with T-Mobile’s network.

        • bob90210

          So it’s expensive to buy an expensive phone, add an expensive upgrade and insurance plan, and have unlimited data to go with it. Thanks for the info.

        • Eric

          And thank YOU for the sass.

  • monkeybutts

    I entered, I never win anything on these though maybe some day but I doubt it.

  • Joshua Jones

    From what I’ve seen working at T-Mobile, the full retail cost is always higher than the “price with eligible plan”. I’d say it’s gonna be around $649

  • Jimmy James

    $700? Looks like it’s gonna be the HTC One M9 for me, which is rumored/speculated to have the same price as the M8.

    • Jay

      It’s said to be $599

  • TmoSamsungMan

    How much does a piece of gorilla glass go for? 10 maybe 15 bucks at most? Smh Samsung, don’t get me wrong the phone is nice, i love it, it’s a beast and i love the freaking edge man, except the damn bottom and lack of !!Micro SD!! What the FU $am$ung you became freaking apple now! I hate apple and been with you after an htc mytouch!3G! Ever since S3/N2. You have the best freaking specs why would you copy that horrendous apple marketing style that only apple people will follow and just throw it at your fans like that? “Okay now we finally give top end hardware and build but we wanna copy apple so their loyalist come to us” are you serious man? “Apple brain waked l washed loyalist would never turn!” And they could of made the back removable “don’t give me that”. Nobody remembers those old metal htc phones that had removable backs? I could of even lived with that cuz i fix phones and have a heat gun but no sd man. I like the edge but if the tmobile models don’t have 64, 128gb sizes i might skip.

    • David Icke

      you mad bro?

      • TmoSamsungMan

        No but your welcome to give me a blow job if you want.

    • Erik

      Exactly! I had the mytouch 4g. It was a nice phone at that time. Yes it did have a removable battery, I had 2 batteries. YES, THE BACK WAS METAL! There is no reason why they can’t make a metal phone with removable back. It’s all beyond me. Hopefully they don’t mess up the note lineup. I have the note 4. And loving every bit of it. I don’t plan to get a new note till the note 6 anyways. Unless the 5 had a huge change and differences. Don’t feel the need to get new phone every year.

      • TmoSamsungMan

        I only have an s4 cuz i rebuild one really cheap for like 120 and that was after the s5 was announced, i literally didn’t see a point in getting it as where this phone is worth it. I’ve had bad luck with my 64gb sd cards getting corrupt and got into the habit of using a micro sd adapter so a 64 or 128 is good for me. I’m not a yearly phone buyer either, still have my note 2 running on DN4 rom.

  • cybermoni

    With these prices, it will be the most expensive flagship. The touchwhiz bloatware doesn’t help there case. I guess HTC or Oneplus for me.

    Samsung really doesn’t want to gain market share, does it.

    • A$AP Chris

      I haven’t owned a Galaxy since the S2 and am by no means a Samsung fan, but everything I’ve read on the internet says that the S6 will actually come with less bloat than its predecessors. I think you are mistaken.

  • itguy08

    Considering what a pile of garbage my S5 and Android is, $1 is too much.

    What a mistake. Dear Apple, please come out with an iPhone 6s+ with 700a. I’ll be first in line.

    • Bad news: the IPhone 6+ won’t come with Band 12. However, the IPhone 7+ will come with Band 12.

  • Dark enV

    One thing still makes me laugh about the S6. Everything that Samsung is now doing is exactly what they’ve been trashing Apple for doing for years now. That’s really what blows my mind. Again I am an Apple guy, but I love all tech, and I help people buy phones all the time with my company Tech Envy so I work with all types of devices and the one thing most android people would preach to me about is how Samsung is so awesome cause they know what they’re doing and they call Apple out on not having removable battery or having expandable storage every chance they get and I talked to a few of them today and they’re still pissed about this. They’re considering just going with HTC or waiting it out another year.

    • Peter Smith

      Can’t beat them, join them.

    • watkins

      I agree with you 100%. Never thought I’d ever see this day. Samsung is attempting to royally screw it’s customers with the s6. They think android users are just as retarded as apple people… Guess what? We don’t blindly buy shiny devices with stripped features and pay premium prices. The apple strategy won’t work here and they’re in for a rude awakening.

    • Mike

      Apple trashed Samsung for its large screen phones now Apple is selling larger screen phones

      • KingCobra

        When did Apple release an ad trashing Samsung?

        • skywalkr2

          Doesn’t have to be in an advertisement to be true.

        • KingCobra

          Right so in other words you’re just imagining it. Don’t confuse Apple fans with Apple the company. Apple never mocked or made fun of larger screened devices, the only thing they stated was that they would make larger screened iPhones when they felt comfortable that the technology was there to do it how they wanted to do it. Now I do agree there were quite a few iPhone users mocking people who used large devices like the Note.

          Now Samsung, they directly mocked iPhone users in their ads for something that they turned around and added to their latest flagship devices a few months later.

        • skywalkr2

          No. Derision of large screen phones was a constant refrain of Steve J. Also small tablets.

        • CWash
      • Dark enV

        That’s not a really great comparison to be honest. Samsung got a lot of criticism from not just Apple but many of the other phone makers for using a larger screen on the galaxy note, but a market emerged from that and it became a demand by the people. Having a microSD card slot and a removable battery removed were never things that people were demanding, if anything people are demanding for them to stay. I can’t think of a single person that stated they wanted Samsung to remove those two features. While many people were yelling at Apple to go ahead and release larger screens.

        • Mike

          If people really wanted SD card slots and a removable battery that bad then how is the iPhone 6 outselling them and Samsung is loosing marketshare

        • Dark enV

          Samsung started losing market share after the S5 came out and wasn’t that impressive. The iPhone 6 outselling them is a choice of OS mainly not things like SD card slot. But one of the reasons people chose Samsung over some of the other android phone makers was because of the SD card slot and removable battery. I’ve talked to many people who have stated they’re ditching the Galaxy S because of this. Samsung still owns the android market, I think this will hurt them.

        • Mike

          People claiming they will leave because of the s6 will come around to love it . With most people not storing a lot of music on there sd cards anymore due to music streaming . With T-Mobile you can stream music without using your data allowance.

        • Dark enV

          Possibly but I wouldn’t bank on it. People are sick of TouchWiz and people don’t just store music on their sd cards, most use for video and pictures, and this thing can record 4K video which can take up a ton of storage and a lot of people really like keeping music on the phone even with streaming, don’t forget there are 3 other carriers getting this phone and Verizon and ATT charge a lot for data in comparison and it’s not free to stream, and Sprint… well they’d be happy if they could stream music at all LOL so having downloaded music for them is a big thing, and T-Mobile’s network outside the city is still problematic as of right now so again having music downloaded is a plus. The biggest thing is the fact that they want to charge a premium price for this and they stripped 2 features that if they still had them could justify the price. I’ve talked to many people who love Samsung and they’ve stated they will not be getting the S6 now, they’ll either get the Note 4 or the HTC One M9 or they’ll wait for the LG G4 or even wait for the S7.

        • afive720

          You have to understand that the user base for iPhone is very different than user base of Samsung. Apple might have trashed samsung for bigger display, but it is way different than what apple was doing. Up until this announcement every ad they had was making fun of the iPhone. From how it bends, to non removable back, list goes on… What are they doing now? Going the same route and literally copying their design.

          Many people buy the iPhone for its ecosystem. I have used android for ages and still have a nexus 6 as a business phone, but, I can’t make it my daily driver because iPhone is just better. The operating system is fluid, iMessage, better picture and file backup, app quality. Samsung is trying to do like apple with their hardware design, but it won’t win those customers, not many at least. Those who prefer iOS won’t come and those who love samsung won’t buy this because it is against every principle they believe in. When you coupe Android 5.0 with amazing design elements to Touchwiz, you’ve got a disaster. Ugly interface and still buggy I bet.

          Prior to this announcement ask samsung people why they love their phone, it will be all of the thins that apple isn’t. And now that it is just like apple? They won’t want it the same way as before.

          Now, ask people why they love the iPhone? And I’m pretty sure most of it is to do with ios. Sure, samsung can now probably compete with apple on the camera front, but not software. I do not see hordes of apple users jumping to samsung and being happy.

        • Mike

          You gotta understand a lot of people switched from Samsung phones to iPhone 6 phones .

  • Eric

    What’s dumb to me is that other companies are working to increase sales by LOWERING prices. For example One Plus. Its a great phone for basically half the price of the iPhone. Now Samsung wants to go the other direction? While LOSING market share? Really?? I think they’re in for a rude awakening when their sales yet again miss target due to price (and I won’t even get started on the money theyll miss from loyal customers that are upset with no SD slot or removable battery). I personally think it looks like a great phone. But I can’t afford to upgrade to a phone that costs almost as much as my computer.

    • Jay Holm

      Motorola has also put a lot of effort into reducing the cost of smartphones, and both the Moto X & Moto G are fine smartphones.

    • watkins

      Agree with you 100% idk wtf is up with Samsung but I’ll tell you one thing for sure. If they plan on keeping this trend with the next note. The note 4 will be the last Samsung device I own.

      • TmoSamsungMan

        Still getting it. “Thank god for insurance and prepaid”

    • afive720

      Completely agree. Apple has a very specific user base and Samsung has always been trying to beat them. Now that their strategy failed they are pretty much copying apple. Will it work? NO! Why? Because of a basic principle as to why Samsung’s user base is here! They hate Apple. So now instead of offering same features they have before, they are raising the price and literally ripping off Apple’s design. I do not see it going well for them with their customers. And the amount of customers they will pull away from the iPhone will be negligible. iOS is a great ecosystem, Touchwiz is buggy and has terrible design principles. …

  • UglyPete

    T-Mobile always has a higher retail cost than other carriers anyways. I’m sure it will still be $599 at Verizon and AT&T

    • Dark enV

      Not a chance if anything and that’s not true. If anything the other carriers may offer it for $649 but to me there’s no chance that it’ll be different then T-Mobile

    • guest

      100% wrong. Check the prices. Tmobile sales the phone lower then at&t and verizon on the next & edge programs.

    • afive720

      T-Mobile has higher prices if you walk into the store wanting that device at full price. If you are Jump customer it is identical to the other 2 carriers.

    • 1000steps

      I’ll pay the extra $100 and stick with ACTUAL unlimited data.

  • Jay Holm

    It’s scary how much the 128GB regular S6 will be. But either way I’m getting it, cause I intend on holding on to my S6 for at least 3yrs.

    • watkins

      Why would you buy this garbage? They took away the SD slot, external battery and on top of that it has no water resistance. Buying the s6 only proves what everybody has been saying for years that I refused to believe. Samsung is copying Apple to the tee.

      • TmoSamsungMan

        Sad but true. That’s why i stick it to them the way they do to us. Won’t go into details.

      • Mike

        Samsung is running a business for profit and doesn’t care about the few of you who are mad about the s6 because Samsung phone sales dropped while Apples rised so changed had to be made if you don’t like it go buy another phone

        • TylerCameron

          Apple’s sales rises only because Apple caved and gave us a reasonably-sized screen.

        • watkins

          Well if they think the sales dropped before just wait till this pos hits the market.

      • TheManYo

        Because she wants to.

        • watkins

          Thanks captain obvious. Still doesn’t answer my question.

        • TheManYo

          That is the answer, accept it.

        • watkins

          Actually no. But if that works for you thumbs up.

  • Jay Holm

    I most definitely agree, smartphone prices are getting way, way too high. What keeps me as a Samsung customer is the Super AMOLED screen, I think their amazing.

    • skywalkr2

      Same reason I switched from the G3 to the Nexus 6. The Nexus 6 screen is bright and pretty.

  • name

    You can buy a Galaxy Avant for $99 under the current T-Mobile promo. Is the S6 really 7x better? Sure, the specs are better, but a 7:1 ratio? And these specs will do things “better” (e.g. better camera, screen, etc.), but is there anything the S6 can do that you can’t do with an Avant (which has an SD slot, removable battery, does Band 12, VoLTE, and wifi calling)? And $700 for a device with a 2-year life expectancy?

    • Trysta

      I think the better question is will you be happy with a phone like the avant. Yes or No.

      For me personally the answer is no. I want a phone that will continue to receive support both from Samsung and devs for a long time. I also value a really good camera. So as long as I can afford it I’m going to get a phone that meets those needs.

      Put another way if I bought 7 terrible low end phones for $99 each according to your logic I should be just as happy as I would be with one $699 S6. I somehow doubt that…

      Not saying $699 for the S6 isnt a bit painful…

      • afive720

        See, if we are talking about Nexus 6 being $700…sure. iPhone 6+? Sure. S6? No!

        Let me explain… I have worked in cell phone industry a bit in the past and have always followed phones. I do not recall there being a single Galaxy S series in the US that didn’t have issues post launch with updates. They came in buggy, caused a ton of issues. I used to have customers complaining about so many things ranging from battery life, force closes since Samsung pushed an update out. So, to me, I just really do not see the value in the Galaxy anymore.

        Your carrier might offer “protection plans” and exchange defective device, to do so…

        1) go to the store and wait in line.
        2) talk to the rep who will tell you that the world will be amazing if her resets your device.
        3) device reset and all but contacts are gone.
        4) you leave thinking issue is resolved.
        5) issue comes back.
        6) go back to the store or call care and hope they offer a replacement.
        7) you get your new shiny phone to realize it is a refurb…
        8) you call to complain and they assure you it is in “AS NEW” condition and has no difference than your 3 month old device.
        9) same problems + new issues

        Now, with a Nexus google is much better about sending out a new device. Not just that, even if you somehow end up with a refurb, I’ve never seen it have issues. On Tmobile, every iPhone refurb they tried to send me had physical damage!!!

        iPhone? There are apple stores who always exchange with a new device, not a refurb.

        In the case of the Nexus and iPhone you get solid software updates. Yes, Apple does mess up, but I have never had issues as bad as I have experienced with a Galaxy updates.

    It’s pretty and shiny but I’ll pass. Dear LG, please don’t screw up the G4.

  • AngusMightHaveABeef

    $700 for a phone stuffed absolutely full of bloat. Not only is it going to come with the normal Samsung bloat, but it is going to come with Uber, PayPal, Evernote and a total of 22 other apps installed whether you want them or not.

    • Hector Posada

      You obviously haven’t seen the unpacking video. No more bloat. You now have the option to bloat your own samsung device

      • No more Samsung bloat, you mean. Google will still cram its usual bloat on there. No chance in hell they’ll stop with bloatware.

  • SickOfTheAds

    Cam, I don’t know who’s decision it was to put even more ads on this site, but they’re making the mobile phone experience impossible to view the article. Such as not being able to scroll anyone. All the ads are really getting annoying now, and I’m now less attracted to keep coming back if this persists. I bet the next ad will be for us to take a survey, register our home address and phone number, just to read a news article. Can’t something better be done about this?

    • Chris Fisher

      I don’t know that I’m sick of the ads but I was having trouble reading on the desktop site in Chrome. This ad at the top pushed the page down about 4 inches, then when it was done it pulled it back up 4 inches. I realize ads are going to be part of a site like this but I wanted to let someone know these particular ads are really interfering with reading the site.

    • bob90210

      • afive720

        Will it help if I put my bank info down in order to expedite this request? lol

    • TylerCameron

      What I really hate are the clickbait ads like the “secret brain pill” .-.

  • mreveryphone

    what processor are we getting?

  • Ordeith

    Who get’s such an expensive phone and uses it on such a cheap network? /smh

    • Abe_The_Babe

      Who gets such an expensive phone and uses it on networks which limit data use?

      • afive720

        Uhm, people that need coverage? Lol I am on my phone a ton. From streaming Spotify in extreme quality, to watching youtube and web browsing. Between working, gym, and being out and about with friends I rarely go over 12gb.

        • Abe_The_Babe

          If you need rural coverage, sure. I’ve been to Los Angeles, San Diego, Las Vegas, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Palm Beach, Orlando, Florida Keys and Puerto Rico in the last 2 years and I’ve been incredibly satisfied with T-Mobile’s coverage and especially data speeds. My wife and I pay $100 a month for unlimited talk, text and web. I do well over 10GB of web every month. If I chose the 20GB plan for us to share with Verizon EDGE (meaning no subsidies, like T-Mobile) it would cost $170 a month. That’s a difference of $840 a year. No thanks.

        • afive720

          Not true, Verizon does give you subsidies look it up. Also, you get $25/mo discount for each line on edge. It would cost $140 for 20gb for two lines. Regardless, I travel a lot too and I agree for the most part until you get inside buildings.

        • Abe_The_Babe

          I just calculated from their site. I put 2 smartphones and select 20GB and it says it costs $170 a month with EDGE, or $220 a month with regular pricing. The point of EDGE is that you get a discount on your plan but no subsidy, correct?
          The coverage inside buildings is rarely spotty for me, for the last 2 years anyway. Doesn’t affect me enough to think twice about it. Plus with the new low frequency spectrum rolling out that problem will be nonexistent in many areas.

  • BillSmitty

    Pre-registered, yes, but with that price the only way I’ll be using the new S6/S6E is if I win one in the launch competition.

    Oh, and sentence three should say…”The grand prize…”, not “The grand prices…”. Do you need an editor? :)

  • William Burr Winans

    No Micro SD Card and Non Removable Back
    Thanks but No Thanks!!

  • ElmoGagootz

    I’ll get the LG Win10 phone when its out. I’m done with Samsung and the updates that are promised and never come.

  • afive720

    Ill pass. $650 is too much for it even. Touchwiz is a shame to Android, I love material design and Touchwiz takes too much away from it. I would really like for Samsung to do the same thing they did with S4 and make a google play edition… I know you can probably root it and install stock rom. But, from my experience, none are as stable as they should be.

    Is it me or did they really rip iPhone 6 design off?

  • For those who are irate at Samsung nerfing the SD card slot on the S6, I cordially invite you to buy the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL. Together, we can help put a serious hurting on the Android market share and send the message to Samsung: you don’t like copycats (they did copy both IPhone and Windows Phone), and you demand SD cards!

    • Bobby Wright

      nah

    • Randall Lind

      All windows does is update itself every day on my PC why would I want a phone doing the same? I am already pissed that Microsoft apps are preinstalled and can’t be removed on the S6

      • The Windows phones don’t update their software daily. They only do so semi-annually, or about once every six months.
