Pre-order pricing suggests no price cut for the Samsung Galaxy S5

0. phoneArena 28 Feb 2014, 22:41 posted on

Amid talk that the recently unveiled Samsung Galaxy S5 might launch at a lower price than the Samsung Galaxy S4 at its launch, U.K. retailer Clove posted its pre-order price for the phone. The 16GB Samsung Galaxy S5 is priced at £499.99 ($838 USD) or £599.99 ($1005 USD) after tax. Amazon Spain is asking €730 ($1009 USD) for the same exact phone...

1500?? that is just insane. Samsung is insane. I wonder where their arrogance comes from. Are they actually expecting higher sales than the GS4 with that price? At first I thought the phone was decent due to their lower pricing compared to all the gimmicks they put in but now its just stupid. And yet they will sell millions... They seriously need a lesson.

Similar things were said about iPhone 5s, but the sales was unbelievable! I think these companies know how to attract people by mess

Let me ask you something can i get any other phones with iOS other than the iPhone?
In android world samsung is replaceable thats what happen with HTC.

Slowly but sure there is many people start to "shift" from samsung to other manufacturers just like me from GS2 to Z1 Compact.

Thats not Samsung's pricing. Its just early-bird stock being taken advantage of. Later on it will be priced around $750 or maybe even $650

So many noobs... This is PREORDER PRICE. When all the hype and attention is focused on the S5 are you really suprised retailers are trying to rip you off?

Only the dumb will buy at this price.

$1500 please tell me no one will pay that, if only all the people got together over there and said no and did not buy any then apple would be forced to drop price. an apple phone is not worth a third of that

No FM radio. ... It s a shame considering Sony htc and LG do offer it for sure. Why samsung why u didn't listen to your customers?

Because the majority of the people they surveyed didn't give a damn about an FM radio

Yes. majority in the states. But international countries esp. in Asia, we still listen to the radio. even nowadays cars still keep it.

Well, there are still plenty of people who like to have an FM radio. But luckily you can check if your heart is still working instead...

FM radio is going downhill, IMO. So repetitive, though I like some of the talk shows. I can't even remember the last time I listened to music on FM radio. Whenever I drive my car, I just hook up my phone and use my Spotify playlist.

You can't buy a macbook with that is what I'm saying. MacBooks are still more expensive.

Not saying macs are less expensive
. All I'm saying for a S4 with a makeover for more than 1000$ it's insane. It's made out of plastic it's led the iphone look like a mid range phone compared to that!!! And yeah macbooks are expensive but they will last you for awhile that's why getting one.
Samsung is effective buy apples selling method:P
