T-Mobile reduces Galaxy S6 and S6 edge pricing by up to $200

T-Mobile is the first US carrier to lower the price of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge following Samsung's efforts to maintain momentum. With the price reductions, you can now save up to $200 on the purchase of either model. T-Mobile has lowered the price of the 32GB and 64GB phones by $100, while the massive 128GB variant got twice that, at $200.

For the Galaxy S6, full retail pricing now starts at $579 for the 32GB, and goes up to $659 for the 128GB model. On the Galaxy S6 edge, the 32GB starts at $679 with prices going up to $759 for the 128GB model. With the $200 savings on the 128GB models it puts them at the same price as the 64GB model, making it and even better value.

Jared started off writing about mobile phones back when BlackBerry ruled the market, and Windows Mobile was kinda cool. Now, with a family, mortgage and other responsibilities he has no choice but to look for the best deals, and he's here to share them with you.

  • It's a fire sale!!! it's a fire sale. Hey, you gotta do what you gotta do to try to increase demands, but it will come at the cost of profits. If this keeps up, I expect Apple's profits share to increase from the current 92% to 98%, outch.
  • Apples market share is 92% are you sure?
  • Profit share, not market share. A report, which I don't believe really was disputed, had apple making 90% of the money. Samsung at 15%, various other OEMs making small amounts of money and also -%'s to even it out to 100. Posted via the Android Central App
  • You do realize the s6 was priced higher than the iphone 6 to begin with dont you? so the price difference is still not that big. But you wouldnt know that since you are just a troll.
  • I know, just the edge, not the regular s6 buddy.
  • Haha he's back the biggest apple troll on AC Posted via the Android Central App
  • Yeah. The prick can't help himself.
  • "Kill them all Apple, and let the Gods sort them out." lol
  • Thanks for the confirmation, you git.
  • Should've been these prices in the first place. Either way i'm glad I waited and got the Idol 3.
  • Samsung is feeling the heat with all the bad customer reactions they're getting lately. Trust that they're aware of it, too. They're desparate for sales. Unless the stories are wrong about that small 3,000 mAh battery in the Note 5, they better prepare for the crap storm to come. Posted via the Android Central App
  • No way it will be 3000 mah MIC DROP
  • It is. Brace yourself. Posted via the Android Central App
  • No way. I'm not a Samsung guy but this would be concerning. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Jlczl.....except it's not ! No reports said it would be that small, that person probably just did that to be a troll. Phuckin iphone idiots Posted via the "None-Ya" app
  • Pocketnow quoted DroidLife, so, nope, no "iPhone idiots". Posted via the Android Central App
  • A source with an actual device in hand said it was 3000 mah. I haven't seen it for myself but I believe him. I guess we'll see soon enough. Posted via the Android Central App
  • that would be disastrous ... I don't know the results of their focus groups and market research, but if that's indeed true, they need to realize that even the general public, not just us, cares a lot about battery life ... what good is that fancy camera if your phones dead?! Posted via the Android Central App
  • If they actually put that small of a battery in a device like the Note 5 then it will show how it off touch Samsung is becoming.
  • I have been a galaxy fan since the S3, but my S5 is garbage and I was hoping the S6 would be a slam dunk, which it is not so I have for the first time been looking for a new phone and not even considering the galaxy or the note.
  • The rumours were that it's a 4100 Posted via the AC App on Note 4 N910F
  • Battery capacity != battery life. I'd bet money that the battery life of the Note 5 with a 3000 mAh battery will be superior in virtually all cases compared to the Note 4 with its 3220 mAh cell. If you don't understand how this could be, you might just want to wait for the Anandtech review for a technical explanation. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Where shall we arrange this wager? Posted via the Android Central App
  • Swappa buyers market. Let's see how sellers try to hold their current high prices lol. Posted via the Android Central App
  • For people who expect high resale values, Android devices are not their friend. Posted via my S6
  • Still $500 too much, IMO.
  • I agree with the previous comment. The small fixed battery is a gamble Samsung took and lost. The pricing strategy is either right to begin with or completely wrong. How can a flagship device that's barely 4 months old take a $200 price cut? Way to screw over your early adopters, Samsung. Having said that, I still love my S6 Edge, miserable battery life and all. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I guess some people just love to suffer. I for one will not compensate Samsung for their stupidity and won't buy any of these new devices until they go back to delivering a product that stands on it's own merit. The Note 4 will be the best available Samsung device well into next year and further if Samsung does not right it's course. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Nexus 6 dropped in price after 6 months as well. I paid 650 and now it's 500. I never saw that coming. Assumed they couldn't drop the high price because of the "Middleman Cut" the carriers get per device, about $200 ea.
  • T-mobile was just ripping people off for the past 4 months. Their new prices on the 32 and 64GB models of both the S6 and edge are now about the same as Verizon has been since launch. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I've been a big Samsung guy for the last 4-5 years. That's about to change. Thinking about going back to Windows Phone for a year or two, Android 5.1 was a set backwards. Google seems to be lost in a world of "let everybody use the cloud for storage." If this is the future of Android, I'm gonna step off this merry go round for a little bit. Still, an iCrap will never be in my line up.
  • 2015 Moto X, plenty of storage and price is right. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Agree! Price is definitely right, and I'm considering this
  • Definitely a set backwards.
  • The way it's going with Windows phones they might not even exist in a year or two anymore. Posted via the Android Central App
  • This is the ish I hate with Samsung or some android manufactures and even the carriers. Getting a phone on day 1 whether paying full price or EIP is just a rip off. Carriers/Manufactures lower prices of the device 2-3 months later which severely decreases resale value if you are trying to sell your device. It SUCKS!! As much as I am not an Apple fan at least their devices hold value!!
  • Actually, at launch a lot of the carriers offers specials. When I bought my Edge from Verizon I got $100 credit for trading in a worthless phone (palm pre2). So it only cost me $599, which is less than T-mobile is selling it for after today's discount. And I've had 4 months to enjoy using it.
    At any rate, a 15% discount 4 months into the life of something which typically loses over 50% of its value after 12 months is actually the right thing to do. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Don't buy a phone because you think of it as a investment. .it's not buy it cause you like it . Besides there where discounts on trade in when the gs6 first came out . Price drops are gonna happen I don't worry about it I want the latest right now Posted via the Android Central App
  • I mean thats kinda how it works...
  • this is why I never buy phones at launch!
  • Supply and demand is a bitch! Apple has a very small marketshare - that's why thier devices can hold value longer Posted via the "None-Ya" app
  • Woot has iPhones today. Nice. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Apple is the only company to brainwash people so they make 90% of profit in the phone industry
  • Apple is felling some heat as well they've lost market share in the last month across the board and there on sale to . They just do it in a different way. Like right now at target you get 150 DOLLARS off . plus 50 dollars gift card . Sammy is just doing what everyone does this same time of the year .and just a week ago best buy was giving a $200 gift card for a Iphone 6 are 6 plus Posted via the Android Central App
  • Oh boy!!!

  • This is the default bs answer all android fans have, don't you guys know that's also the easiest one to debunk? All the android flagships sells for the same price (M9, Nexus6, GS6 etc...). The GS6 edge was selling at an even higher price than the iphone last time I check. Even with those unsurmounted pieces of evidence staring at them, they will argue to no end. The answer is a simple one, but they do not want to admit it. The simple fact is android flagship phones do not sell in great numbers, most android devices are sold at the low end, especially in the third world market, that's the only growth market. There are not a lot of profits selling at or below costs on the low end. That's the simple answer just deal with it and move on. Samsung sold about 70 million phones, I am willing to bet maybe 1/4 sold were flagship phones like the gs6, that's the biggest reason for the difference in profits. Apple do not sell any device below $450 and that's a two year old device. Samsung are selling devices as low as $50. It's not rocket science folks.
  • Well folks he's back with another apple financial reports. Thanks for them imfo .... not Posted via the Android Central App
  • Troll on you crazy diamond.
  • The original S6 is already under $500 here with the 32GB S6 Edge costing $585. Posted via the Android Central App
  • This is why I vow to never be an early adopter. From my Note 3 to thee
  • Hum ?? says the guy that's still rocking a note 3 ?? . I like to buy my phones hot off the press I don't ever worry about price drop . If I wanted to buy an investment it sure in hell wouldn't be a phone . I have the means so I buy what I like when I want it got my eye on the note 5 when I drops Posted via the Android Central App
  • Nobody asked you to brag
  • still thinking of getting this not sure if i should just give it a go or still wait and see the moto style for the only reason that i hate carriers stupid apps
  • The gs6 is a great phone don't listen to the naysayers and with all the deals this is a good time to buy . My thoughts buy a phone cause you like not because what you think it'll be worth 2 years from now Posted via the Android Central App
  • It can't be 3000 Note 2 was 3100, that would be ridiculous. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Brace yourself... Posted via the Android Central App
  • I don't think the Edge should cost any more than the regular version imo.. Watching video on it is weird.
  • but why only a 2 day sale
  • Still overpriced with the sale... Posted via Android Central App
  • It used to be all the flagships were about $600 dollars but that has seemed to be creeping up in the last year or two. I know the technology is better but it used to be that because technology also decreases in costs over time and as it improves, it seemed the flagships still stayed about the same. Maybe the Note and iphone were $100 more.
  • Still too expensive - and why does the curved screen cost $100 more? They should be the same price.
  • The edge is more because it take more man hour to bend glass . And besides samsung gave you a choice flat are curve . Not sure why all the complainers about the price anyway 70% of you guys buy the phone on 2 year contract are the payment plan . There's not that much difference in payments from a 600 phone and a 500 dollars on 30 months it's about $3 more . For that difference I'll take nicer phone for my money . And anyone that still thinks it's over priced why are you shopping in the caddy dealer when you know your wallet says Chevrolet Posted via the Android Central App
  • That's a pretty lame comment to make. It is overpriced, period. The Moto X Style will be $399 and Motorola will still be making nice money off of it. Samsung makes most of the internals of their phones, so they can afford to lower their prices. I have an HTC One M8 btw - compared to the S5 (when they launched together), it is a better phone. Samsung phones are nice, but a Cadillac, they are not.
  • So for my bro-in-law that bought the S6 32GB last week is he screwed or will T-Mobile credit him? If not I guess return it and buy it again since it's been less than 14 days.
  • Granted, the LG G4 is a smaller phone than the Note 5 will be, but it has a 3000 mAh battery, and I've been getting 2 days with moderately heavy use. So time will tell, I suppose... I still think the S6 is more expensive than it should be...part of the reason I went with a G4...
  • Good point about the battery capacity been hearing all the gloom and doom on the note 5 battery being only 3000 mah . But if you do some checking almost all the battery in that phone category are around 3000 with the iPhone 6 plus being only 2915 mah Posted via the Android Central App
  • Still too expensive, the g4 is cheaper Posted via Android Central App with LG Google Nexus 4
  • wow so now im stock with a 64gb s6 when 128gb is same price. should have waited.
