Samsung Galaxy S5 listed for €650+

Written by Fuad Abazovic



16GB black

It didn’t take long before European online shops started listing Samsung's Galaxy S5 phone and we this morning we found it listed for a rather steep €674 or more.

We are talking about the black version of the phone with 16GB of storage, much of which will be taken up by Samsung bloatware, but then again Samsung is smart enough to retain the microSD slot that will let you expand storage using a microSD card up to 128GB.

The phone comes with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 801 processor, at least it does in DACH market (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland) and a few other European countries. Of course it supports LTE. Samsung obviously wants to chase Apple’s flagship iPhone 5S with its pricing. As Samsung already said, this phone should show up on April 11th in 150 countries and most of them will get this phones from carriers with subsided pricing too. From what we've seen, it won’t be cheap and it will match Apple’s iPhone 5S pricing. We don't have an official retail price at the moment, but it looks like it will be around the €600 mark.

Samsung claims that bloatware is a good thing but we would prefer an uninstall option for most of these apps, something that Samsung is not happy to offer. Hopefully there will be a Google Edition Galaxy S5 that will come without all that nonsense.

You can take a look and if really interested preorder it here.
