T-Mobile is the fourth US carrier, right after AT&T, US Cellular and Sprint, to add the Samsung Galaxy S5 to its portfolio. As T-Mobile promised few days ago, Samsung’s latest flagship phone is available for pre-order starting today. The carrier is offering two payment options. If you don’t want any long-term commitments, you can grab the handset outright for $660. However, if you don’t have that much cash, T-Mobile will sell you the Galaxy S5 for zero down with the cost of the device divided into 24 monthly installments of $27.50 each.
Samsung Galaxy S5 for T-Mobile
The T-Mobile Galaxy S5 will start shipping on April 11th, however, if you place your order before March 31st, T-Mobile guarantees that you will receive your unit before the official launch date. Moreover, customers who pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S5 before the end of the month will also receive a $120 discount on the purchase of the Galaxy Tab 3 tablet. Last but not least, the Magenta network is willing to pay off early termination fees for customers who want to switch carriers. You can save up to $350 plus trade-in on your existing device.
If, by any chance, you are still unfamiliar with the Galaxy S5 specs, here is a quick reminder of what you can expect. The Samsung Galaxy S5 packs a huge 5.1-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, and a massive 16-megapixel camera with 1080p video capture and host of shooting modes and editing tools. Following a trend set by Sony, the Galaxy S5 is dustproof and water-resistant. IP67 rating means that the device can take a bath in up to 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes and shouldn’t suffer any damage.
New features introduced with the Galaxy S5 include fingerprint scanner embedded in the “home” button, and hear rate sensor, which together with new S Health app, lets you keep tabs on your health. Powered by a 2.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor paired with 2 GB of RAM, the phone is a real powerhouse. It also comes with 16 GB of expandable memory, 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, 4G LTE connectivity, NFC, Android 4.4 KitKat and redesigned TouchWiz UI.
