Buy what you can and shut up!
The price is normal as were all the samsung flagships.
It includes latest tech (14nm processor, DDR4 ram...etc) all those things cost money.
And it's with taxe(VAT) included.
And by the way, Samsung is not doing charity, so don't expect them to offer it to you free of charge.
By introducing these price tags, customers are opting for the iphone6 now.
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2015So Samsung is charging more for Europeans or the Dutch for the Galaxy s6? also what the hell ... moreNever knew math was so hard for some...
Most of the EU applies 19-21% sales tax, which is included in the quoted prices. So yes, here in the Netherlands, the quoted €699 price for the 32GB S6 and €830 for the 64 GB S6 includes 21% sales tax and 2 years warranty.
So if you substract the sales tax and convert to dollars (1 Euro being 1.12665 dollars), that would translate to $652 and $773 respectively before American sales tax, if applicable.
But again, that's not how these prices are usually established. The €699 for the base model of the new S series, is exactly in line with all previous S models sold here. Not a Euro more.
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2015I will not pay more then $500 for any smartphone. Wait for s6mini, and s6 edge mini. 500$ & 650$. Specs will be bit slower.
aigarslv, 02 Mar 2015700 EUR - that is too expensive even for a flagship... And latest tech aside - Sammy actually ... moreYeah still rocking that blekota rom n it's awesome. project ara is what I am waiting for. I am done with buying regular phones.
How much! I really hope Samsung aren't going to shoot themselves in the foot by pricing most people out of buying their phones!

it's over priced. that is all. for an android phone, way over priced. It does not really have any more advantage for it's android competitors.
I was waiting for the s6. But when i look at the features and price, I would rather buy a sony xperia or a HTC. Bye bye S6. I work hard. But not crazy.
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2015OH gosh it's 931 dollars for the 64gb model (Iphone 6 regular) 849 for the 64 gb model, Samsu... moreEven if it was a direct conversion based on value of currencies (it never is), that would account to $770 for the 64GB S6, after subtracting the 21% sales tax included here.
Oh and American prices were never the direct result of a simple currency conversion. Americans have always paid less in actual Euros. In part because we get an extra year warranty on all products here, which companies will take into account when pricing products (it costs them too) and the fact that all phone prices here include 21% sales tax.
I'd like to remind everyone here that my S2 (16GB version) was introduced in shops in the Netherlands at .. hold on... €700 too.
Don't act too surprised.
The prices for pre order in a finnish web shop... http://www.expert.fi/Haku?searchterm=galaxy%20s6
Samsung is known for plastic that now they are using kinda of quality they are charging high price for that so- called quality. S6 will continue to be expensive Mark my words. My HTC M8 it continues to rule them all
To all saying that the price is too much the price will fall this is the opening price it's not an iPhone so price will drop withing first one two month and comparing it to iPhone is silly coz iPhone looks and basically is not as feature proof as this
iphone price for samsung galaxy s6!
are you kidding!
why should i buy this!
no removable battery!
no card slot!
I will choose iphone then.
OH gosh it's 931 dollars for the 64gb model
(Iphone 6 regular) 849 for the 64 gb model, Samsung your crazy!
Ninjabass, 02 Mar 2015850? really.... now all the phones needs a millionary to buy it?i don't get it either. who will buy this junk anyways? Useless gimmick. the reason why it's so expensive is probably because of low production yield and alot of money spent on research and development for those screens.
the real application of them is yet to come: Actual bendable screens. Foldable/rollable tablets.
