Save $50 when you pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S5 today from Radio Shack
Some carriers in the U.S. are starting today to take pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S5. AT&T will reserve a unit for $199.99 with a signed two-year pact. Also today, U.S. Cellular customers can pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S5 for $199.99. Those who do this online will receive a $50 Google Play promotional code.

Now, Radio Shack has tossed its hat into the ring. Starting today, pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S5 from inside a Radio Shack store and you will receive a $50 discount. And if you have a working, but unused phone lying around, Radio Shack will give you a $75 to $300 credit toward a Samsung Galaxy S5 using the retailer's Trade and Save program. The retailer has had problems with its phone and tablet sales, which led to a larger fourth quarter loss and the subsequent closing of 1100 underperforming stores.

"The Samsung Galaxy S 5 will be one of the hottest mobile devices this year and RadioShack customers will be among the first to get a great deal on this new smartphone. RadioShack associates are experts in helping customers find the newest technology and enhancing that technology with other state-of-the-art devices to accomplish even more."-Paul Rutenis, chief merchandising officer, RadioShack

Starting Monday, T-Mobile customers can pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S5 for a special introductory rate of $0 down with 24 monthly payments of $27.50 due. That works out to a price of $660 for Sammy's flagship phone.

Barring any last minute delays, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is expected to be released on April 11th.

Lol that's cool. But let me get back to the article. I think the only phone that should be pre ordered is the iPhone cuz it sells out in the first day. This will not sell out ever. I think everyone should wait to see what the new One has to offer. Me personally, I'm going to wait for the G3, my G2 is enough for now.

I love the Front Facing Camera on that G2; probably one of THE, if not, THE BEST of all smartphones. And, before some of you ninnies have coronaries, I have a Note 2 and, yes, I've tried them ALL!!! (Except Windows Mobile, of course, as they are still developing their smartphone line and platform).

Where have you been - it's been all over the news!
This is a great deal, too, when you think about it:
$199 (2-yr Price)
-$50 (RadioShack pre-order)
-$100 (Verizon Bill Credit if the offer is still available for this device)
Total Cost = $49 + those sickening U.S. sales taxes, FCC charges and NSA Surcharges.

BTW, how's A-Rod holding up??

Still not worth buying this phone. HTC is the better choice. Even the 2013 HTC one is better and costs way less than this.

I'm not so sure you can really judge yet. Can you? Shouldn't you be waiting to personally put them side by side before condeming one or the other?
