The Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge will launch April 10, but you can pre-order it today from carriers nationwide. Some carriers are offering special deals on the new phone, and we've aggregated and listed the options below for your convenience.
The Samsung S6 and S6 edge are available in three colors and three different storage configurations. Although the cost does not change depending on the color selected, the larger storage capacity options obviously have a higher price tag.

AT&T and U.S. Cellular have the typical two-year contract deals for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge that drop the price from the full retail amount down to the amount noted in the chart. (Existing customers should double-check their wireless plans to ensure there are no other fees, though. It's tricky out there in carrier plan land these days.) The Verizon Wireless deal is the same, but new subscribers customers can also get a $100 credit.
T-Mobile offers the most expensive deal for the new smartphone, but it's throwing in a year of Netflix service when you purchase a Galaxy S6 or S6 edge. Given that the most expensive Netflix service is $11.99, the maximum value of T-Mobile's offer is $143.88 for the year of service. As a result, offers from other companies are more attractive, as the money saved going with a plan from another company would allow you to buy Netflix service for a year and still have money left over. Users who don't currently have a T-Mobile SIM card will also need to purchase the SIM starter kit for an additional $15.
Sprint has the best offers, but you will need to purchase an Unlimited Plus phone plan to take advantage of it. Purchasing a 32 GB Samsung Galaxy S6 with this service plan will give a $20 monthly credit for two years, effectively making the phone "free."
The $20 credit from Sprint is available with any of the Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 edge smartphones, and you can reduce the monthly payments down to only $5 or $10 depending on which model you choose.
We did not examine the cost of service in these offers, so to make sure you are getting the best deal, you should explore the various service plans available on your carrier. The Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge will be available April 10.

I had Galaxy S5, i was very disappointed, so much so i actually got iPhone 6. People kept raving about Galaxy 5 camera but it was horrible, now iPhone had a great camera...........the rest of the phone i just did not care that much.
It depends on the user. When I had gotten my Note 2 when they came out, I had chose it over an iPhone 5 (which my wife has) strictly on the fact I could add an SD Card to it. I currently have a 64GB card in there now that is mostly full with my own personal music. I don't have LAN access at work for the phone and streaming completely eats up my data plan. For them to remove a feature like that, it makes the device worse than what I currently have for my needs.
It's rumored that there will be 2 more S6 versions. the S6 Active (with MicroSD) and S6 DUO for dual sim cards (assuming for world-band?). So hold tight, I wouldn't be surprised to see these on the market by September.
Hmm.. that sounds quite familiar.
