  • $800?? Holy crap…

    • Major Sceptic

    • John Apel

      Nope, AT&T exclusive

      • TheRelaxedFlier

        Good to know, thanks.

    • Heywoodjablowme

      It’s paid not payed you nitwit.

    • Hans Pedersen

      That $800 price tag does look like a typical unlocked price to me. Maybe check with them whether that is unlocked?

  • bigkev943

    wtf samsung is going nuts with their pricing.

    • Joonho Jung

      gosh its priced same as the s7 edge

  • Xavier Riggins

    The only reason Samsung has such high ridiculous pricing is because of the iPhone. I’m glad HTC has better pricing.

    • Major Sceptic

      Do you think so ??? Maybe I’m wrong, but i think your getting a higher specced device with the galaxy, very nice build quality, water proofing, wireless charging, amoled screen,
      whether you like the features of not, they are there.
      You mention the htc, it’s a decent device, but i look at it, and imo it looks a very basic device for the money.

  • Don Draper

    $800… Seriously… Why do they even bother making the phone in the first place… Who will buy that seriously…

    • Joonho Jung

      like the s7 edge?

      • Don Draper

        The S7 edge is much cheaper! And for $800 the phone isn’t even unlocked, is full of bloat etc.

    I think this shouldn`t be exclusive to at&t.. This phone for me is far better than the regular fragile glass s7.. I need a little more security in terms of my investment considering that these highend phones nowadays cost around $600 to 800.. Would you rather buy a glass phone at 700 dollars and waste 200 more for cases that sometimes doesnt take care of the job.. Leaving the phone still prone to breakage? Or would you rather have a phone priced at about 800 dollars but ismore rugged and keeps you feeling secured considering the fact that they are virtually indestructible.. Why need a premium phone when you`re simply going to cover it with a plasticky case? Im not saying that these are all true for everybody but for me, that is how i see things.. The s7 active is a more economic choice for me compared to the regular s7 lineup.

  • TheOracle

    $800!! That’s insane. Great phone and specs though. Phones are disposable imho. I change mine every 6 months to 1 year. Some major Chinese company is going to come out with a similar phone for half the price very soon.

  • Phillip Pugh

    good luck getting warranty work done on those cheap knock off . I paid over 8 for my gs7 edge and so did plenty others and gladly so . if your wanting a cheaper phone then buy it its clear this phone is out of your price range

  • Lisa

    I wish this was available for other carriers as well. I would’ve gotten this one instead of the regular s7
