With a huge 6.7-inch screen, a large 4,600 mAh battery, a 3D time-of-flight sensor and, of course, a built-in 5G modem, we knew the Galaxy S10 5G would not be cheap. But now that Verizon has officially announced the pricing for the S10 5G, we finally have an idea of how hard Samsung’s first 5G phone will hit your wallet. For the base model with 256 GB of storage space, the Galaxy S10 5G costs $ 54 a month for $ 24 months, resulting in a full retail price of $ 1,300. And if you choose a model with 512GB of memory, you’re at $ 1,400. That’s almost double the price of Verizon’s only current 5G phone – the Moto Z3 – which, combined with a 5G Moto mod, gives a total price of $ 680. To attract potential 5G pioneers, Verizon offers on the Galaxy S10 5G offers discounts of up to $ 650 and a free “Samsung VIP Kit”. However, first read the fine print For $ 650, you must be a new Verizon customer and sign up for an unlimited plan to receive a prepaid debit card of $ 200, and then enter a promo code after you receive your new service Line. To get the remainder of that $ 650 discount, you’ll need to trade an old phone, which must essentially be an iPhone, Galaxy, Pixel, or a LG flagship made in the past two years to be the Full $ 450 to get a trade-in.
The only bonus you can really get is the Samsung VIP Kit – which includes a free pair of Galaxy Buds, a wireless charging battery and a free water bottle (lol). The only requirement for the kit is to preorder a S10 G5 by May 15 and then register your device in the Samsung Shop app.
In addition to the pricing of the S10 5G, Verizon announced that it will adjust prices for its 5G plans by eliminating support for the 5G service from the company’s lowest-cost Go Unlimited plan. In other words, if you have a 5G phone, live in a 5G city, and want 5G service, you’ll need to pay for Beyond Unlimited or Above Unlimited, each starting at $ 50 per month per line. Finally, Verizon Announced In addition to cities with existing 5G services, which include Chicago and Minneapolis, Verizon will expand 5G coverage to another 20 cities in 2019. These cities include: Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dallas, Des Moines, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Little Rock, Memphis, Phoenix, Providence, San Diego, Salt Lake City and Washington DC , However, I would also recommend this for someone who lives in a place with 5G coverage and if you are considering a 5G phone, you should probably wait until first. As I’ve seen testing Verizon’s 5G network in Chicago, while 5G offers some ridiculous download speeds, the cover is spotty and generally requires you to be outside, as walls, some windows, and other obstructions prevent the 5G 4G LTE speeds.Then quickly reduce speeds to regular levels, after considering the price of a new 5G phone and the additional 10-month month, it will be chargeable to 5G service (which will void Verizon for the first few months) ), and you’re looking for too much money for not a ton of upside potential. At least for 2019, 5G will be an incredibly difficult sell.
