    Really doesn't matter to me. I'm signing up for the 12 month AT&T Next program. 32 GB model. Probably looking at 32-34/month in financing.

    Assuming cash wasn't an object, I would pay about $700 for one.

    I suspect the S5 will be in the $699 range for full price. I'm going to buy - how fast depends on what accessories are available on launch day. I prefer Spigen cases and I bet they already have something in the works.

    $699 seems awfully high. Their Note line is supposed to be "better" and having it at that price would kind of go against that. I'm guessing $629 at release data again

    Is what you are talking about for a 32 gb?. Hopefully VZW learned its lesson with the S4 or that. I sure have enjoyed my S4 32 gb or the past months. Sold all the other phones I had a while back and did not root or put a rom on my S4. I am just waiting to hear more about the S5 as to weather I will spring for it or not. Oh BTW what is the Glock thing. I don't own a Glock but none of my weapons are nickle plated but all are equipped with laser which put those little red dots on intruders chests or foreheads. I got the Outer Box with my S4 not the expensive one. I got the cheapest Outerbox VZW sold. I was happy with that but not as happy as the case I got with the S3 when I bought it. Maybe I will try a Spigen case this time when I get the S5 32gb. I have been paying about $700.00 would not want to go over that but may wait until I start seeing them on Swappa.com before I buy.

    I am hoping Samsung (and carriers as a whole) only start at a 32GB version and also off a 64GB version. I think the 16GB's are a thing of the past. I may be (and I hope I am) to high with putting a $699 price tag on it but time will tell. I have enjoyed my S4 as well but I'm ready for something different. I almost pulled the trigger on a HTC One from Swappa but after reading about the chipping and such to the exterior, I decided not to.

    I too am waiting for more information on the S5 but I know I am getting it regardless. Maybe have it until the Note 4 drops (or whatever they call it). I've never been a fan of Motorola phones other than that fancy Razr V3 from back in the day. Lol.

    I am partial to Spigen cases but there customer service has really taken a nose dive and as such has turned me off from them. I especially like their Glas.T Nano screen protectors. Yes, they are pricey but I'll never go back to the plastic ones again. That being said I'm sure the accessories are already in the works. Plus you can normally get their products through Amazon and with my Prime membership, I get them faster than Spigen shipping them.

    The Glock thing is from my po-po days. I am a Glock fanatic.......lol.

    If I remember correctly, the S4 was $699 full price ($799 at Best Buy) when it was released. It'll be close to that. Say $649-$699.

    I am looking to bail on Verizon and move over to AT&T and will likely go the same route with the 12 month NEXT option so that I can get an upgrade in a year and just keep on cruisin. Why not and save my self the hassle of resale issues. Of course IF Sammy makes a 64GB version would we see it in the US or will they play the microSD card crap and stick us with 20GB of usable space as usual.

    I want a 64GB version with the 64GB microSD card that will make the S5 all the better and out class anything else.

    Third party retailers are always going to raise the price.

    Are you guys talking full, unlocked prices?

    Or are these 2-year-contract prices?

    Just curious. I was looking to switch from an iPhone 4S to a S5, but I was thinking something like a $399 + 2-year-contract deal.

    If this thing will be over $600 with a contract, then I'm out!

    Full price.
    On contract will likely be $199 or $249, depending on the base storage

    lol

    Yea, that's better. I'm looking at getting the higher-storage one for under $400. But then that's based on Apple's pricing range. I have no idea what Samsung usually charges for their Galaxy's at release with contracts.

    I'm also thinking of switching from AT&T to Sprint for unlimited data plans, but still totally uncommitted to anything. My current plan ended last October, so I'm a free agent at the moment. lol

    Samsung phones are usually priced differently depending on the carrier, unlike Apple which charges the same across the board. And up until now they haven't had 3 storage options like Apple has, so I'm expecting 32/64

    Third party or not they are still $699.....

    Best Buy is even higher (as they always are) at $749.

    The 16gb full price was $649

    They're $699 with third party retailers. Why anyone would buy from them is beyond me.
    It's like someone who wants a Nexus 5 buying it from Sprint for $449, when they can be bought on the play store for $100 less.
