you apple biased twit. "emulating apple once more,"
We guess you mean higher pixèl screens
Now what would apple give for that new s7 edge release to have had an apple logo on it,
with erica and engadget, and android authority and the gadget show etc etc etc all praising it.

in malaysia exactly the same svc provided by many telcos. ZEROLUTION!
Yes, just to add this is a bit of a non-story in the UK. You can but the S7 / S7 Edge from Samsung site. Then choose the Samsung Upgrade Programme to allow you to upgrade the phone after 12 months. After 24 months the phone is yours. And you get it 3 days early on the 8th, plus VR headset

Right now, less than one year after its debut, you can practically buy a s6 and s6 edge at almost half price brand new. S6 edge plus will suffer an even worst fate considering its successor is already releasing 7 months later..

I am sure leasing costs will be around 35$ a month same as a the apple program, which is 420$ for a phone, it cost them way less then that and they now have the buyer in a contract to get more phones through them. Smart move on Samsungs part, I wouldn't suggest it for the user though.
Anonymous, 01 Mar 2016How does this makes sense from a business point of view?Looking at how samsung discounts immediately and give a lot of gifts to push high end handset sales, i think samsung cares about market share more than profits.
I'm assuming that overall you're better off buying and selling (or handing it down) your device yourself.
I may be wrong but I think with normal contracts, it's actually a good deal as they subsidise the phone to inventivise keeping your contract with them. So unless you're using that old phone as a coaster after you're done, you're better off with this route still.
Granted, selling your device is a pain and I doubt many do it. Though handing it down is probably quite popular.

That's a great idea but i think they should let people upgrade phones any time they release a new version instead of minimum 12 months, as two of their flagships in the past year has been replaced sooner than 12 months (note 4 to note 5, 11 months. S6 edge plus to s7 edge, 7 months).
