Akinaro, 01 Mar 2015I have no idea why people buy something straight after premier... Its not like your old phone ... moreUnless you're me that still has the Samsung galaxy s3 and have been dying to upgrade your phone that freezes right when you are searching something and randomly deletes apps from your phone. lol

AnonD-341196, 01 Mar 2015But it only cost 200 to make!It costs 200 to make, but you have to pay the ones that put the pieces together and make it work, you have to pay for the advertising, you have to pay the designers, and you have to make some profit.
I'm in the UK, we do seem to pay more for our phones, almost the same in £ as you pay in $.
However, I can't find that phone on the Samsung website, so I would question its authenticity.
Meanwhile on top of the fact that the Galaxy is using much more expensive parts and software and cost more to develop....this is uk and rumor...
Expect fanboys to react like children
The samsung pricing is fake if you look closely you'll see that its the galaxy alpha
I would have to be insane to give 1000€ for a phone, that in reality is not worth even 500€. Even the iPhone is cheaper than this. And it is overpriced as well!! Yeah lets give a 1000€ for a phone that will spy on us. Collect our data, all of our personal information and send it to conpanies like facebook, google and co. Make them even richer than they are at this very moment... Then again, why do we need privacy in the first place...
anybody with the live stream link.. i need to watch it live from China ( no youtube link)
of course its pricey here in the uk, all device makers hugely over-charge in the uk because they can and no-one will stop them. we in the uk are treated as cash cows by foreign firms, instead of converting from euro or dollar, they just keep same price and put pound sign in front, why, because they know our gutless politicos will do nothing to stop them. if samsung tried charging a thousand bucks for it in usa, they would sell bugger all, sell at loss in america, profiteer in the uk.
I have no idea why people buy something straight after premier... Its not like your old phone is dying or its bad... wait two month or more and you gonna get the same phone cheaper... its not gonna be huge difference but still even 50 euro is good...
M9 price is for USA (649 USD), in UK probably the price for an unlocked version will be around 600 GBP so more than 900 USD. Also for the samsung S6 699 GBP is high, but probably will be sold at 650 GBP.
Investing more on mobiles is useless. Technology will change day by day. We are not folks Sammy and Apple. After 3 months of launching price will drop to 50%. And Sammy market going down day by day.
A fool will always part with this kind money tho,just to keep up with the jonesie's ! Bad enough being stuck on a 2yr contract then six month down the line something new as usual pops up,but you have got another 18 month to go on ya contract until you can keep up with the jonesies's ! Oh well thats life !
