No more pre-orders: the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge are finally available.
Now that you can drop your hard-earned money on a Galaxy S7 or S7 edge here in the U.S., it's time to find out just where you can do so. Whether you want to buy it from a carrier or decide to go a different route with an international unlocked version to use here, we have you covered.
Where to buy the Galaxy S7 edge
If you're interested in the larger, curved Galaxy S7 edge, the nice thing is that it's available anywhere the standard version is. Just get ready for some sticker shock — you'll pay at least $100 more for the edge model. When buying from the carriers you'll have your choice of silver, gold or black colors, and remember that this year 32GB of internal storage is your only option. Here's where you can buy one:
Amazon has you covered if you're looking to buy full-priced and unlocked, where you can go pick up the "F" variant that's best compatible for GSM networks in the U.S. like T-Mobile, AT&T and their respective prepaid carriers. Don't expect to buy this one and use it on Verizon or Sprint, but if you know what you're getting into and don't want the carrier bloat this may be the way to go.
Maybe you want to go with Verizon instead. It'll set you back a cool $792 at launch, or $33 per month for 24 months with Verizon's financing.
If you're a Sprint customer, this is where you'll go. Sprint has a few different ways to buy the Galaxy S7 edge. You can pay $30.50 per month and upgrade to a new phone after 12 months. You can also get on a proper financing plan for 24 months of $31 per month. Sprint even has a two-year contract price of $299. Or if you want to buy it without any strings attached, you're paying $749 out the door.
T-Mobile has two standard choices for buying, just like Verizon. You can pay $779 up front and buy one outright, or you can get on a payment plan. How much you'll have to put down on the financing depends on your credit, but T-Mobile advertises $59 down and $30 per month for 24 months.
AT&T just barely has the most expensive price at launch, with the full freight setting you back $794. If you choose to finance, AT&T will sell it to you for $26.50 ... but that's for 30 months instead of the usual 24, so take notice. You can also choose $33.13 per month for 24 months or $39.75 per month for 20 months if you want to pay it off quicker.
Where to buy the Galaxy S7
It's more of the same here for the smaller (and therefore less expensive) Galaxy S7 — you can go with an unlocked international model from Amazon, or hit up a U.S. carrier with some better financing and incentive options. If you go to the carriers, note you'll only have a choice of gold or black colors — you'll have to go elsewhere to find silver or white.
Amazon is the way to go if you want unlocked version without any tampering from the carriers — and it's the only way to get silver or white colors. Just remember this phone isn't guaranteed to work on any carrier in the U.S. — but the bands line up for AT&T and T-Mobile, at least.
Same story as above here, but with lower prices. $672 all-in, or $28 per month for 24 months on a financing plan.
Even more pricing options! Sprint will sell to you without commitment for $649, or you can choose different financing plans. It really pushes you to the lease option at $25 per month with an option to trade-in and upgrade after a year, or you can choose a proper financing plan of $27 per month over 24 months. You can also go on an antiquated two-year contract for $199 up front.
More of the same from T-Mobile here: $669 up front if you don't want financing, or a plain $27 per month for 24 months if you'd prefer to finance — again, potentially different with a down payment, depending on your credit.
Once again, make note that AT&T's default financing plan is over 30 months instead of the usual 24 — you'll be expected to pay $23.17 per month in this case. If you go with a 24 month financing plan it's $28.96, or $34.75 for 20 months — and if you want to pay it all up front it'll set you back $694.
