    Default is it pretty safe to assume that the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S5 will sell for about $299?

    is it pretty safe to assume that the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S5 will sell for about $299? (at least during the first month or two?)

    I'd guess either 149 or 199 for the smaller internal storage version and 249 or 299 for the higher, but yeah you're in the right range (in my opinion).

    Thanks! I seriously doubt that Samsun or Verizon will price it at $149, even for the 16GB version. That sort of cheapens a high-end phone, no?

    Probably $199 for the 16GB version if there is one. And another $50 or $100 for the higher storage version

    I think $299 is a good guess for the 32 GB version. I'll say $349 for a 64 GB version. And full retail will be around $700. But you just know that within 2-3 months, they'll start having price cuts or sales.

    I think it'll start at $199.99 on-contract.

    I also think $199.99 starting on-contract pricing.

    I wonder what the off-contract price would be for those wanting to purchase outright to keep unlimited data intact. Perhaps $599.00?

    $599 sounds right.

    Check this article: Samsung’s New Galaxy Said to Feature Bigger, Sharper Display - Bloomberg

    Note the point about pricing. Samsung is 'thinking' about reducing the price for S-series this year.

    Interesting article. The guys talked about the possibility of a new Gear alongside the S5 or maybe even a new Note. Would be cool to see it released with the S5 and with wider compatibility at release, unlike the current model which was only compatible with the Note 3 at launch.

    There have been rumors that the GS5 will be priced lower than prior GS devices so if that is true then we could see it in the $199-249 range on contract and perhaps $599-649 full price. LG seems to be far more aggressive in pricing their hardware. Too bad their OS update track record hasn't been stellar.

    Probably $249 with a $50 rebate or straight $199. Maybe they'll sell a version with a higher capacity for $50 more.

    Funny how Verizon killed off MIR's only to bring them back because they know people will cut that UPC code to get that $50 going asap otherwise they forget about it and then you can't return the phone.
