in Brazil, note edge is about 1000 euros (has been recently released), iphone 6 plus 16gb is about the same price (128gb about 1400 euro)
I call B U L L S H I T !!...As always, Samsung will only release their largest capacity phones outside of Korea a few months before their next predecessor is announced. Expect the 128GB version to hit your shores in Feb 2016!
thenerd, 09 Mar 2015I understand Sony/HTC but not Apple, an Apple is like a serious downgradeunfortunately my dear, most people own an apple more than HTC and Sony combined. That says something. You can call it up grade or down grade or no grade but there is value in an iphone that you can easily see in the resell value.
Ridiculous! 1000€ for a phone? Although prices in Italy tend to really be higher than the rest of the world, still... WTF did i just see?
The 128 GB version of Edge is priced to, hold on, 1350 EURO in Norway.
I'd rather buy a top specified laptop
darkraver, 09 Mar 2015Aha, other flagships will offer better for at least 200€ less Good luck with sales ;-) You can get a Snapdragon 615 with 1080p 16/5 mpix mobile for €199. So then you can get 4 of those for the price of this one, ridiculous.
Stupid to think this is what it's going to cost world wide.
I'll wait and see how much it pops up on the Hong Kong market (tax free and grey market importing is legal) before I judge.
110Euro 32Gb ? Probably all components are priced like this. 50EURO 5cm of glass; just because it hase a monkey name
op, 09 Mar 2015so what stops you from using a feature phone? how do you choose between BMW, Audi, Mercedes, L... moreAha, other flagships will offer better for at least 200€ less
Good luck with sales ;-)
thenerd, 09 Mar 2015I understand Sony/HTC but not Apple, an Apple is like a serious downgradeso what stops you from using a feature phone? how do you choose between BMW, Audi, Mercedes, Lexus, Ferrari etc (they all have the same shape, weight doesn't matter to the customer, they all have windows, they all have the same engine - if you drive normally, you will not drive at max speed)? nobody forces you to choose one specific phone or brand but ask yourself this: what is Apple selling you for 800-900EUR? what are their profit margins? do you feel it is correct to spend 800-900EUR on a phone which only cost 150-200EUR to produce? what is the difference between 2 Xperia Z phones in 6 months? read about all the new tech incorporated in the S6 Edge and than compare to any other phone which is out right now. all new technology is expensive. bottom line is these two phones are both extremely attractive both by looks and by specs. if you don't have the money to buy one, cry elsewhere - there are always cheaper options.
Wow,the two edges are so dear. Having considered smartphone models usually are updated annually, it's a brave decision to own one.
TheSuperCoolFunGuy, 09 Mar 2015Why are people complaining about the price? When you buy it on contract you get the cost subsi... moreThese phones on contract cost you about 30% more than retail price in the end...
Do the math...
Anonymous, 09 Mar 2015Wtf Sammy has lost it!? Those prices are even higher than an iPhone. And for less features tha... moreyou charge phone in 10 mint! why you need removable battery? crazy people :))
There you go..."the iphone way"
Pricing will be its flop of greatest magnitude
thenerd, 09 Mar 2015I understand Sony/HTC but not Apple, an Apple is like a serious downgradeI know any iPhone is like going back 2 years of tech... but remember that some aren't that tech-savvy, but would like some memory expansion and would even find the insane price to be too absurd.
This is such a bummer move on Samsung.
Unsuccessful sales of S5 dropped the turnover of Samsung (And they omitted salary increase this year)
S6 will just kill iSamsung. Such insanely high price will just give them a golden shot (imagine the price of 1000-EURO phone going down to 700-EURO 8-9 months later; it is a real social image killer)!
People who throw money without thinking buys iPhone! That won't change in the future.
Imagine what the 128GB model will cost... Too insane, Samsung, too insane. Or most probably you'll never produce a 128GB model. So we'll likely just have a 64GB at most. I have actual 26GB internal + 56GB memory card external expansion. What's stopping your real Samsung customers from getting HTC, Sony or Apple products instead? Not very much, I can say that...
its all about waiting now .. they increase the price we decrease the anxiety ..these phone prices r getting ridiculous every year. I'd rather buy a good laptop with that kinda money. Plus these devices r used for information, social networking and playing a few games.. nothing more than that. And its not like holographic display or anything upbeat.
