AT&T Galaxy S4 price will be $249, pre-orders start on April 16

0. phoneArena 28 Mar 2013, 10:30 posted on

Never wanting to be left behind, AT&T has announced that it will start accepting pre-orders for the Galaxy S4 on April 16. Unfortunately, it's still unknown when the device will actually ship, as AT&T hasn't revealed the release date, unlike T-Mobile, which has announced that it'll ship the GS4 starting May 1. Anyway, we guess AT&T's Galaxy S4 release date will be quite similar...

Pay $50 more and receive an outdated phone that can barely keep up with the new bunch?

Ill take my luck with an S4. This phone is future-proof.

While your Galaxy S4 is on 4.2, Nexus 4 users will be on 5.1 :)

And while you guys are on 5.1 we will be on 5.0, with the support of the best developers in the android world.(this is not pertaining to stock users of course)

The Nexus 4 came too late in the game. Still a good buy but it is now obsolete.

You're smoking the bad sh*t, bro. The N4 is far from outdated. You're just a Sammy boi

Take your luck with the S4 and have fun with your God awful sh*tty TouchWiz! LMFAO

I will take the pure Google Android experience any day over any bad designed UI and be locked to a 2 year contract...

The Nexus 4 is over $1000 cheaper than the S4 in the long run.

AT&T's unlimited talk/text plan and 3GB of data is $100 a month, so that's $2650 over two years for an S4.

With the Nexus 4, you can go with T-Mobile or Straight Talk for $50-$45 a month unlimited talk/text/2GB of data, that's $1500-$1380 over two years for a Nexus 4.

Paying anything for a phone without LTE is throwing away money

I am getting a GS4 for free, but if i wasnt then I wouldnt pay any more than $200 because its not a phablet which are usually $300 at launch. If its $250 it should have 32 gb built in with a mirco sd slot.

I'm too accustom to $200 for a premium phone with contract. Even though its only 50 dollars for something that I'd have for 2 years I wouldn't do it. I agree with YaBoiDre10, I'd rather spend $300 on the Nexus 4 on principle than signing a 2 year contract and pay $250.

Simple. Sell your old phone and pay the difference of the retail price. I got the S3 and Note II by doing this.

Or, you can sell the old phone and pay nothing for on contract.
Or maybe even have money left over for a case...

Not with an Android phone. I sell a lot of phones, and if you bought the S3 from AT&T, you will be roughly 10 months from launch, and you don't qualify for the 1 year partial upgrade (-$450). Your phone is worth about $350 if it is mint. If you bought the Note II, your sale will net you $450-$500, but you are under 6 months, so you have to pay full price (-$650). The only phone that holds its value is the iPhone, and The 5 only goes for -$500, used.

I'm leaning towards At&t not Samsung pricing it this way. If Verizon releases it at $250 then I would agree with you. $250 is too much because this phone will be $100 on Amazon.com in one month.

The OEM price to carriers is quite less retail price. So the contract price depends on how much carrier wanna subsidy.
