Deal: Brand new and unlocked Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ for $599

Deal: Brand new and unlocked Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ for $599
We've reached that point in the year at which most of the second-wave releases have been announced. Chief among them, Samsung's Galaxy S6 edge+, which, besides being a bit of a long name to reference, is essentially a larger edition of the original S6 edge. Samsung has made some key changes to its high-end line-up this year, doing away with long-standing features like the microSD support in favor of finesse and style. It's a decision that has certainly divided opinion, but one aspect that has remained fairly constant amid the overhaul has been the price. Owning a device of the caliber of the S6 edge+ is as expensive as it has always been, but for now, you can grab the unlocked version for just $599. 

The handset is sold through eBay, which some will naturally balk at. But for a device like the S6 edge+ -- listed as brand-new and unused -- it's a steal, and for the money, you get quite a bit of bang for that buck. 

The version on offer comes with 32 GB of on-board storage and a choice of either gold or black coloring. Sporting a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1440 x 2560 resolution, the S6 edge+ follows a number of handsets in the ranks of quad-HD. The powerful Exynos 7420 SoC is accompanied by a whopping 4 gigs of RAM, while the 3000 mAh battery should help to keep the lights on for a decent stretch. 

Sold through Monoprice on eBay, $600 is still quite a lot to drop on a smartphone. But to its credit, this phablet does have most of the goodies one could possibly dream of (aside from, well, a microSD slot and removable battery - but let's not go there..). As we noted in our Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ review, it's quick, sleek and offers generous battery life, so if you're interested in grabbing it at a fraction of the usual price, more info can be seen at the source.

Too much. The $500 Nexus 6P exposes Samsung for their ridiculous prices. The LG V10 exposes Samsung for their terrible design. (glass, no removable battery & SD)

For your information, the phones Nexus 6P and Galaxy S6 are available in my geography for a price equivalent to $620 and $510 respectively. Now tell me which phone should be bought.

No. Only IDIOTS buy a phone made of glass without a removable battery and SD.

Don't be abusive here. A noble man once said that - people who abuse are - often the kind of people - described by the abusive words that they use. I hope I need not elaborate further.

So...what about the people who bought the iPhone 4 and 4S. Were they idiots too? Or is this a Samsung Haters only rule. Please answer because I will come back and see how you justify this.

Also I bought 2 Note 5's, for me and the wife, but I loved the S6 Edge I had, that I exchanged it for the S6 Edge+. We both love our phones. So if it makes me an idiot that I paid less for my phone than the iPhone, and I have more storage, better cameras, more ram, more features, more CPU power, a better design as it isnt a repeat of the last years model; then being an idiot is great. Because on your side of the floor, the "smart" people essentially upgraded to the same phone they had last year with the same everything except a slightly better cameras, that doesn't take better pictures than the older model, looks exactly the same where the only way to tell the difference is to buy a crappy color, which had to be fix with a patch within one week of its release and where sales have dropped down already to a point Apple is cutting back on components. So lets compare. Samsung said it was cutting components orders for the S6, 6 months after it when on sale, Apple is doing the same 4 weeks after the retail availability? So who sis doing worse? I guess Apple wont be selling 75M in ANY quarter this year.

Sorry to tell you but the A9 chip matches/out performs the Exynos 7420 in real life.

While I usually agree with almost all of your posts, if you think the iPhone feels cheap then you'll be highly disappointed with the LG G4.

This is actually a great deal. Hard to find a brand new edge plus from a trusted retailer for $600. Not paying taxes in most states is just a bonus.

I spent over 700 on mine and wasn't let down in any way but this is a steal

Would like some opinions- This, Note5, or S6 Active? Or wait for possible Note5 Active? Am on ATT, so carrier stuff for Actives is not a problem

Depends on what you want out of your phone. I got the Note 5 because I use my S pen, faithfully.

I prefer S6 Active for both its size anf battery capacity.

Note 5 and s6 edge plus are amazing devices.. I had the s6 and hated it but the edge plus is one of my favorite devices I've owned

How is that a deal? That's the same price they are at Verzion.

It's literally in the fu-king title of the article: UNLOCKED.

What you dont understand is, an unlock phone is no huge benefit in the USA. Because an Unlock phone will only work on 2 carriers - ATT and T-Mobile. Unlike in Europe of Canada where an unlocked phones works on nearly all their carrers. Its nto a good deal because its unlocked, its a good deal because the S6 Edge Plus is a $7xx phone to start.

You guys need to relax, chill, sit on the corner, back to the rest of the students. Seriously, there a more important issues to address in this world. There is no need to get your panties in a bunch.

typical cheap overpriced at over 750 just a couple of months ago and now already showing its depreciated cost. what about all the f----ls that paid that ridiculous starting price only a couple of months ago.
