Samsung’s Galaxy Note Edge is now available for purchase in the US, but it won’t come cheap. The Galaxy Note 4 was already at the upper end of the premium price bracket, but the Edge variant could end up costing you close to $1000.
AT&T is the most expensive carrier offering the Galaxy Note Edge. Contract-free, AT&T is charging a sky-high $945.99, which is as much as the ludicrously priced 128GB T-Mobile iPhone 6 Plus. Fortunately you can pay through instalments, with prices starting at $31.54 spread out over 30 months. With a 2 year contract, you can grab an Edge for $399.99, but that is still $100 more than the standard Galaxy Note 4.
T-Mobile’s offer is a tad cheaper. It is listing the handset at $36.25 per month spread out over two years, which brings the total cost to $870. The company doesn’t have an option to buy one upfront or a subsidised contract offer.
Sprint is the cheapest carrier up front, but its two-year contract price is even higher than AT&T’s. Contract-free, the Galaxy Note Edge retails for $840, that’s $100 cheaper than AT&T. If it helps, there is an option to split this sum into 24 monthly payments of $35 with zero up front cost. However, with a two year contract you will still have to pay $429.99 up front.
Verizon, the other major US carrier, doesn’t have the Note Edge listed for sale on its website just yet, but chances are that it will be equally as expensive. For now, you can just leave your email with Verizon to receive pre-order and launch details when they arrive.
It seems like there’s a hefty price tag attached to the Edge’s extra sliver of screen. What do you make of these prices, is the Galaxy Note Edge worth the cost?
