Are you looking for a curved-screen Samsung flagship but you're not too fond of the phablet form factor or you're unwilling to pay $800 for the current-gen Samsung Galaxy S7 edge
? If so, then you might want to turn your attention to the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, which is currently priced at just $469.99 on eBay in its 128GB variant.
Unlike the Samsung Galaxy S7
and the S7 edge, the Galaxy S6 generation doesn't come with a microSD card slot, meaning that the amount of internal storage will restrict the number of apps, games, music, and movies that you can install on your device. As such, the 128GB version of the Galaxy S6 edge is the only one that we can recommend if you want to make full use of the the handset's 4K video capture capabilities.
The deal, coming from top-rated eBay seller 'breed', is for the SM-G925v, which is the Verizon branded version of the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. The seller says that the phone is compatible with Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile, but the handset won't work on Sprint's network.
Unfortunately, due to the difference in LTE bands that the carriers use, the seller cannot guarantee that you'll have full LTE connectivity everywhere in the US. Before committing to a purchase, you should cross-check the LTE bands supported by the phone and those that your carrier uses in your specific region.
With the new Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge out on the market, the Galaxy S6 edge not one of Samsung's best phones anymore. On the other hand, you still get a lot of phone for $469.99: the handset comes with a 5.1-inch SAMOLED display running at a resolution of 1440 by 2560 pixels, an octa-core Samsung Exynos 7420 chipset, 3GB of RAM, and a 16MP primary camera with optical image stabilization.
