xocomaox, 31 Jul 2015Because unlike Apple, Samsung has spent a lot of money on the components in this device. You'r... moreBeast SoC?? your kidding me?? my friend do you know how much it will cost to research and develop an OS?? they research for years and pay those people for years which cost a lot than just purchasing a hardware and put together on a phone. samsung camera is a sony sensor so they did not do the R&D also.. so maybe the price of this phone should be like 400-500. and go to school kid so you can learn something than just posting nonsense..
That's Outrageous!!! Ill get it 50% off craigslist in few months!!
Almand, 31 Jul 2015& people tok bout how expensive the iPhones are For God's sake, this thing runs a free os... moreAnd they don't have to spend for the design and the OS's development ? Do they provide the STOCK android like Nexus? :)
xocomaox, 31 Jul 2015Because unlike Apple, Samsung has spent a lot of money on the components in this device. You'r... moreexpensive good hardware but only 2 years of support. no more updates after 2 years.
"Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S6 edge+ alongside the Note 5 this month"
It is still July :) even down under
eheh, 31 Jul 2015why Samsung chaging too much for this phone??
samsung just put the hardware and use android ... moreBecause unlike Apple, Samsung has spent a lot of money on the components in this device. You're getting, arguably, the best camera and display available, as well as a beast of an SoC and very fast memory.
Apple makes more profit off the iPhones they sell than Samsung ever will. Even with factoring in their costs for OS r&d.
come on maaan.. there are many many rich (but dumb and stupid) people. they will happily spend their money for expensive phone like this with only 2 years of support.
All androids = No updates after 2 years.
Smart people would buy cheaper droid phone then buy newer phone every 2 years.
Adi T., 31 Jul 2015Yes, but iPhones at least have a quality OS and are made out of premium quality materials. Don't tell me that Apple uses premium materials to manufacture iPhones that bends , even Apple themselves has said that they will be using higher grade Aluminium in iPhone 6S/6S+...!
Motorola X Style is going to more popular than the S6 Edge plus,because people will be able to buy the Moto X Style Sim Free,but to get the S6 Edge it will be a two year contract to sign for,with the Galaxy S7 early next year,is it worth being locked in a contract,Samsung as just cut the price of the Galaxy S6s because its not as popular as they thought it would be,so glad i got the Best Valued Samsung phone out now the Note 4
why Samsung chaging too much for this phone??
samsung just put the hardware and use android no need to spend for the R&D..,
unlike windows and apple, they spend to much to improve their own OS
Anonymous, 31 Jul 2015With this price tag i can easily buy a i7 laptop and it will do x100 more things as wellOk. Put your laptop in your pocket wahahahahahahaha
KinG, 31 Jul 2015Worth every dollar for such a great piece of engineering. I have an S6 edge and love it. If ... moreWhat an arrogant attitude! Manufacturing of most expensive smartphone is max $ 220,-. Let's say 50% profit is OK. Sot total price of most expensive smartphone should be $ 440,-. No smartphone is more worth. Anybody who pays more than that is stupid.
Anonymous, 31 Jul 2015300? When manufacturing cost is more than 200? iPhones are much cheaper to manufacture and you... moreYes, but iPhones at least have a quality OS and are made out of premium quality materials.
I'd rather buy Tecno phantom Z or Gionee Elife E8. what a play things these are taking us for. One of these days they're gonna sh*t on the floor and ask us to come and buy it for 1000GBP
KinG, 31 Jul 2015Worth every dollar for such a great piece of engineering. I have an S6 edge and love it. If ... morenobodys gonna cry if they cant buy, samsung is the one who will cry when their s6 edge+ minus ultra grand prime whatever it is.
