This seems to be the best Galaxy S5 price in the US, indeed. If you want to buy the handset off-contract from any other carrier, you need to shed at least $599.99 for it.
Cricket will start selling the Galaxy S5 this Friday, June 27, both online and in stores. Customers will be able to pair it with Cricket’s monthly plans starting at $35 (after “a $5 credit for using Auto Pay”).
The Samsung Galaxy S5 offered by Cricket won’t be different from the version that’s already available in the US, featuring Android 4.4 KitKat, LTE, a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 16MP rear camera, heart rate monitor, fingerprint recognition, and a water-resistant body.
At the moment, the Galaxy S5 can be bought in the US via Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, MetroPCS, Virgin Mobile, and Boost Mobile.
