S7 edge pricey for you? Get the 128 GB S6 edge for just $460
posted by Daniel P. / Feb 25, 2016, 8:31 AM
If the Galaxy S7 edge's nearly 800 USD or EUR are too much for you to shell out for a handset with a unique doubly curved display, fret not, as last year's Samsung high-ends have conveniently fallen in price drastically to make room for the new S7 and S7 edge crop.
Thus, in today's installment of the world's best deals eBay brings you the Galaxy S6 edge, with a 5.1" side-sloping display, for just... wait for it... $460, and that's for a Verizon-friendly version with the whopping 128 GB of internal storage, which would also work with any GSM carrier, and comes with free shipping. And they say the new Xiaomi Mi 5 is cheap for a high-end handset... nice, eh?

This phone overheats and cracks on its own. XDA is full of stories on how people regretted buying this.

I've got the phone since it was released in the first week of may last year in The Neteherlands and I've never had a problem with it since. Rooted it the same day I got it and I'm a heavy user for that matter. You've got to be kiddin' with overheating! Never had an "S" running as stable as this S6 Edge 128GB And I still have them all; S/2/3/4LTE/5plus)

I have a Verizon Note 4 and I don't recommend buying any Samsung from Verizon if you care about rooting

PA, that's such a darn click-bait... You ought to be ashamed, lads... I thought S7 Edge is going for $460... And I said: No bloody way, too good to be true... And here it is!

which goes to show you that they are overpriced by more than 50% initially. clear indicator of no demand for s7 is that the ship date has not been pushed to the right of launch date. indicating still in stock and no demand!

Wow, what an eye-opener! Now, imagine how overpriced those iPhones must actually be, given how much better in nearly every aspect even last year's Galaxy is! Even just factoring the cost of the materials.

I really wonder when people throw around this word "overpriced"... if they take into consideration the fact that companies actually need to make a profit, aside from the costs of human capital, assembly, manufacturing, raw materials, shipping, and marketing. There's a reason Samsung and Apple are basically the only two phone manufacturers actually making money off of mobile. Nearly everyone else is either breaking even or in the red. That largely has to do with downmarket pressure forcing OEMs to sell their devices for less and less.

This article only makes sense if the consumer is only concerned about price & not SD slot, upgraded camera, water resistance......

Even if you're concerned with price this is way too much. I bought a brand new, in the box, Xperia Z3v for $300. 5.2" 1080p, dual front speakers, water-proof, wireless charging, 3200mAh, SDcard...it's a friggin beast. I'll pass on the QHD display and take these features over that.
