Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge will come with 1 year of free Netflix when bought from T-Mobile

T-Mobile today said that buyers of its Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge will get 1 year of Netflix for free, with access to the media provider's "entire streaming library." Normally, subscribing to Netflix for 1 year costs $107.88, so T-Mobile's gift is more than welcome.

This isn't the first time when a new Samsung device comes with 1 year of free Netflix. A previous promotion (which ended in January) allowed customers to enjoy Netflix for free if they bought a Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 4, or a Galaxy Tab S.

While Samsung will officially release the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge on April 10, T-Mobile didn't confirm that this is the day when it's going to start selling the two handsets. Moreover, the carrier has yet to officially reveal the prices of the S6 and S6 edge (though it looks like the S6 - thus the cheaper among the two devices - won't be offered for less than $699 off contract).

As you probably already know, the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge run Android 5.0 Lollipop, coming with a new and improved TouchWiz UI. Both are made using metal and glass, offering a lot of high-end features, including 5.1-inch Quad HD displays, octa-core Exynos 7420 processors, 3 GB of RAM, and up to 128 GB of internal memory. In addition, the Galaxy S6 edge has a unique curved display that covers its right and left edges.

So, who's getting the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 edge from T-Mobile?

The big question will be whether Tmo will have all the color and storage sizes available. Anyone know?

I am willing to bet that the 32GB model in black and white will be the only ones available at carriers stores, while Gold would have to be bought online. As this is how every other phone has been. I am also betting that maybe they will have some 64GB model, but carriers usually don;t sell many due to cost and those along with the 128 will likely only be online. Best Buy I am sure will carry all 3 sizes and maybe the 3 main colors. I am betting the Blue and Green are region specific. I can't wait to see them in the store. Pre-orders start in 2 days.

AT&T will also have the gold, so maybe T-Mo will have it, as well.

I say it rings in at 639.99 ;)

I say the based S6 will be 599 while the Edge model will start at $650. That would be my guess. Or $650 for the S and $699 for the Edge. But they have to keep the S lesser than the Note, because the Note starts at $699. If the Note is 699, no one is going to pay 699 for the S as well. The Note would be a better buy.

It's already been leaked that the S6's approximate retail value is $699, according to an upcoming promotion. http://www.phonearena.com/news/US-retail-price-for-the-Galaxy-S6-leaks-from-a-T-Mobile-giveaway---higher-than-the-iPhone-6_id66872

just cut all this out and make the purchase price of the phone cheaper.

Why? Although I understand people always want to pay the least amount possible for products, companies do have to make a profit. There are legion expenses outside of the basic cost for materials and assembly, especially for a high end flagship product. Consider the fact that Samsung spends more on R&D than pretty much everyone. Consider their budget for marketing. With all of that and their other myriad costs, why would you expect it to have a low price? If price is such an issue, buy a mid-range phone instead. After all, you wouldn't try to buy an S Class when you know you only have CLA money. You can't expect a company to sell their high end products for pocket change. While there are a bunch of Chinese manufacturers that do that, those companies often accomplish that by having zero R&D cost, have direct access to cheap labor, and more often than not by merely using off-the-shelf components and assembling them in whatever fashion they wanted. They often lack brick-and-mortar locations where you can buy their products, have no marketing campaigns, and often ride the coattails of other companies innovations. They usually fail to upgrade the software on their phones to the latest versions, and rely on the specs of their phones as opposed to having a strong quality development program. While there are certainly many exceptions to this, that is how a lot of these Asian companies are that have phones that sound great on paper... but turn out to be something very different in the real world. You also have to consider the fact that a lot of these companies are operating on paper thin budgets, making razor thin margins and just barely staying alive. In a perfect world everything would be affordable and high quality. But unfortunately, that's rarely the case.

you missed the point of my post. last year with the s5 they had about 10 different special offers similar to this one. sure it's nice when you want to take advantage of one of them, but do you really think you're getting it for free? they'll add on netflix 'for free' but then raise the cost of the phone to make up for it. sure you won't be paying full price for netflix, but then you also have 9 other offers that come with the phone, none of which you're interested in, but all of which you're paying for. on average you're losing money because you're paying for all these offers you're not using. just scrap them all, lower the price of the phone to compensate, and let the consumer buy netflix themselves if they want it. this as nothing to do with the base price of the phone like you were suggesting, just the additional price due to these offers.

You said the purchase price of the phone, which seemed to heavily imply you were talking about her phone itself. But, I would agree with you on that point. That in the long run it's something you wind up paying extra for. While I may personally find it useful, that certainly doesn't hold true for everyone.

That is a good deal, hope they offer it on other phones also.

What about people who already have Netflix? Would be awesome if they were streaming at 1440p.

Good deal. The Tmo Versions are often more Versatile Bandwise and Unlocked Bootloader wise for Root fans. Guessing $699. Base price $799 for 64 Gig. $749. or $799. for Base Edge Model. Wild guess on my part no inside knowledge...lol. Blue one may be hard to get....

I'd rather have a years worth of coverage for damages like the UhOh program HTC has for its devices.
