Samsung Galaxy S5 available at MetroPCS starting today
MetroPCS today announced the availability of Samsung’s new Galaxy S5 smartphone - one week after the flagship handset was released by all major mobile carriers in the US, including T-Mobile (MetroPCS’ parent company).

MetroPCS customers should be able to find the Galaxy S5 in stores, as well as online. The smartphone can be paired with MetroPCS’ unlimited plans starting at $40 per month, and costs $649.00 plus tax - which seems to be $10 lower than what T-Mobile is asking for an S5 sans contract.

It appears that MetroPCS is selling only the black version of the Galaxy S5 (T-Mobile is offering it in white, too), and it's not clear if it's going to add other color options later.    

“MetroPCS is on a fast-track to becoming America’s #1 prepaid brand because our customers get the best value in wireless plus the hottest devices, like the new Samsung Galaxy S 5 - without being locked into a long-term contract,” declared Tom Keys, MetroPCS COO and executive vice president.

While the S5 may not be for everyone, it’s certainly one of the most sought-after smartphones of 2014. For a detailed look at its features and design, you can check out our Samsung Galaxy S5 review here.

Im certain this is an open community to comment, post, like or share news articles.

Usually on these communities, consumers, people and editors have a right to discuss their opinion, facts and statements.

Didnt mean to make you get so upset, you need a binky for your butthole.

I had (2) Samsung Galaxy devices and one Galaxy device. Compared to other models and flagships, they are the cheapest feeling.

Id prefer that HTC M8 bezel anyday. Even the Nokia brand feels more premium than a Samsung device.

2 galaxy devices and one galaxy device? doesn't that make it 3 devices? lol and there are hundreds of Galaxy models, that doesn't mean you bought the flagships. I was strongly going for the M8, but my favorite color the grey gunmetal turned out to be scratch prone, the gold is gorgeous, but not for me.

I know it might have confused you I forgot the 'Galaxy S Devices' not all Galaxy devices are the S series.

The Galaxy Reverb was the lowest and non flagship I had. It was for Sprint / Virgin Mobile

The HTC M8 is nice but im done with Android overall, my children love the tablets and thats about it. They game on them. Me personally I Like where the Windows Phone brand is heading

well I speak for myself, I ve had all the Galaxy S models (the S5 is next), and all the Note models and I have never ever had any problems regarding the build quality, and I ve held the S5 in best buy and t-mobile store and it feels great in the hand. Reviewers always praise Samsung for their build quality regardless if the back is made of plastic.
For me I would never see myself using iOS again, but everyone has his own preference, and diversity really helps us the consumers since it makes competition higher within OEMs.

The S series to me feels quite less premium compared to other models. Trust my word I touch lots of phones when I go to retailers and carrier branches. Just to me its a factor that feel, form and build quality among features, and price is HUGE.

Thats why my Nokia Lumia 520 was my best buy ever for a phone for $65. Beat any other Android for Price for Performance, not a flaw.

Now when I purchase the Lumia 930 or Lumia 1520 this wil be a HUGE leap in my experience especially with WP 8.1 coming to enhance and expand capabilities overall.

I had iOS once its pretty ok but I like Android better, but just a bit bored with it over the years. Theres just way to much going on with the Android OS. To many menus, icons, workarounds, options, etc.

Simplicity is my best friend.

Another typical Samsung hater, boring....

Sorry you don't like Samsung or their devices, but you don't see me going on HTC articles and bashing them. I understand this is an open community to post, but if all you are going to do is bash a product or company, then you are just trolling.

Hating on Samsung these are just facts. Can you say all of the Galaxy S devices are superior to its competition and other platforms build quality?

Blackberry Z10 nearly beats every Samsung Galaxy S in build quality.

I am simply stating, you were the first one to comment on this article, basically as soon as it was posted you felt the need to bash Samsung by saying "Samsung Galaxy SRepetitive, boring....." There are no facts in that statement, just bashing. While you can disagree with me on Samsung's build qualtity on their phones all you want, I wasn't talking about that. There is nothing wrong with Samsung's build quality, you might not like that it is plastic(very highly durable plastic that is eco friendly, I'm sure you will bash them for that too)

Perfect timing, im always n Phonearena and IGN throughout the day. I wait for new articles I can add an opinion to totally right.

This might help for facts:

Eco friendly great, Nokia phones are are recycled parts period. Even better :-)

Shocking you would use Bing and bring up Nokia(WM) at the same time, completely unbiased. lol

If your only gripe with Samsung is their build quality, get a phone case. I'm sorry but even the mighty iPhone, Nokia, etc can only take so many drops or nicks from keys, change, etc before looking like crap.

Little off topic, but i feel its needed. PA please do a review or better, a comparo between the exynos and the snapdragon s5. I went to a Samsung cafe to get a hand-on with S5, it was slow, laggy and i was hugely disappointed. The screen was Gorgeous though and it looks better in real life than in pics ( Although that doesnt mean it looks great). The performance really really annoyed me and i felt that Samsung are cheating us with the 2nd grade cpu which gets seriously hot and is slow ( My brother has the Exynos S4) . It costs 52k, roughly 860 $. Samsung have lost it, are just trying to milk every bit of money they can from consumers now. I am no longer a samsung fan...i still love my S 2 though, probably the best phone samsung have produced.
