You can now pre-order the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge from Verizon!


Well guys, April 1st has come about and, as promised, pre-orders for the shiny new Galaxy S6 and S6 edge have been opened on Verizon's website. No, this one is not a Fools joke, so let's take this chance to have a first look at the pricing!

The 32 GB version of the standard Galaxy S6 runs at the "regular flagship" price of $599 off-contract, $199 on a two-year contract, or $24.99 monthly with Verizon EDGE. The same storage version of the curvy Galaxy S6 edge will cost a hundred more – $699 off-contract, $299 on a two-year contract, or $29.16 per month with Verizon EDGE. Each tier of storage upwards basically pumps another $100 into the price-tag – you can check out all the prices in the table below.

Currently, Verizon only offers the two handsets in three colors – black, white, and gold. This may be concerning to those of you who were planning on getting the S6 edge in its exclusive Green Emerald, or the regular S6 in its Blue Topaz variant. There is no word on whether these finishes will be limited editions and it seems that they very well may be, which is a bummer.

Are you not fully up to speed with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge? Well, Sammy's newest flagships boast a metal and glass construction that aims to silence all the "premium" jabs that the older S models were victim to. Additionally, it's powered by an impressive 14 nm octa-core Exynos 7420 and its flash storage employs a new UFS 2.0 tech, which, reportedly, makes it 2.7 faster than any other current phone's eMMC 5.0-powered memory. On the software side, the new S6 models will rock a simplified and thinned-out TouchWiz, which aims to provide a less cluttered user experience.

Well u can still use an sdcard with it, it just wont be internal. you can get one of those very small card readers that plug into the usb port. Since its only media on my sdcard, I will simply plug it in when I need to use it for music which is only at work or home. In my car, my stereo already has an sdcard reader, I just will move mu music to it and I can watch movies in the car too. Battery? I'm not worried. I don't get calls on my phone much. Maybe 2 per day average. II mostly get emails and texts. Plus I have my Gear S with my everyday SIM in it, so that is where I answer my calls anyways.

Pre-order mine already. The Galaxy S6 edge platinum gold 64GB costs me ₩ 1,056,000 (US 955$). Man, I've gotta say it's the most beautiful smartphone on the earth when seeing it in real life...

Unfortunately, $100 dollar phones can beat your S6 in functions. Just opinion reflected also by PA's article. http://www.phonearena.com/news/In-2015-theres-no-meaningful-difference-between-a-100-phone-and-a-six-times-pricier-iPhone-or-Galaxy_id67779

Go ahead and buy it. But I think the guy who wrote that article doesn't use those 100$ phones. :)

I bought one. It's called Cherry Mobile Android One in our country and it's a good phone and decent battery. I don't speak without trying things.

If it's got a sd card reader in the phone it will lag like crap within months

Pure BS myth. Loaded it with 32gb class 10 sandisk and works fine. You know what lags a phone? 512mb ram, 4gb internal storage and facebook, skype, instagram background updates. Playing spotify is good on the phone and smooth for basic browsing.

Its an opinion, not a fact. $100 phones don't have 1440p, they take horrible pictures, they are slow as hell, more are cheap looking. Likely don't use Gorilla Glass, They don't last long on a single charge, the apps I use wont even work on those even with the latest Android or they will be too slow to use. The LTE is slower. I mean there are plenty of meaningful reasons. The main one, I have the frikkin jack to by whatever phone I want. The article is stupid. Yeah, a $120,000 Jaquar offers meaningless benefits over a Toyota Camry. They both have 4 wheels and truck space right? But ig I have the jack to buy a Jaquar, then why shouldn't I.

Depends on the build and user. I'm talking about an android one device and after testing it, I can say that it's a good build. Sure it got low quality camera and hd display but it's ok since their target markets are developing countries.

I want to be nosy and ask how you as a teen can afford a phone? :-)

That's not a surprising question. Actually, I'm still 21. My spending depends heavily on my parents right now. And the S6 edge is no exception, I was begging my mom for it :D

every review i've read so far says the edge is gimmicky and ergonomic nighmare that's prone accidental touch. i don't know what you are smoking but there's no way i'm paying $800 for that

I just pre-ordered the Edge in Gold. Won't ship until May 1, but I'm in no hurry, I have my Note 4. Then when the Note 5 comes, I will sell both the S6 and Note, pay off the line and just have my Note Edge 5. So excited...tralalalalalalal!!!!

Verizon is offering the best prices. Why are the other big 3, not subsidizing more of the cost to encourage purchasing. Yet they all gave a free iPhone 6 or 6 Plus to anyone who brought in a 5S, they gave over $200 for the iPhone 5. They gave $200 for the 4S and $100 for the iPhone 4, which is free on contract. How is Verizon's S6 32GB only 599.99 while the others want almost $700? The Galaxy S off contact has always been $650 until, Samsung dropped it to $599 to encourage sales. Looks like VZW is sticking with that cost which means they may sell more S6's vs ATT who is GSM. Also VZW isn't requiring ANY money down on Edge, while T-Mobile is asking 199.99 down to have a monthly plan. Sure its lower, but that is because they are asking for money down. VZW gives you the option to put money down if you want too.
