The Galaxy S5 has been making the rounds since its global launch a week ago. It's already available at the major US carriers, and now it's trickling down to the smaller options out there. Today the device has come to MetroPCS, a prepaid service owned by T-Mobile, where it's available for $649 without an annual contract. The site shows the phone as currently available in-stores, but the online inventory should appear at some point.


MetroPCS plans start at $40 a month for 500MB of 4G LTE data, with $50 bumping that up to 2.5GB. $60 provides unlimited. Phones will run on T-Mobile's network, so if coverage is good in your area, this is one of the more affordable ways, long-term, to own a Galaxy S5.

Just know that you will have to be content with the black version. MetroPCS isn't offering up any other options.

    No thanks. I'll stick to me Nexus 5.

    I'll probably wait 5-6 months or so, sim free prices plummet for Galaxy phones here in the UK, right now the S5 is well over £500, but you'll probably be able to pick one up brand new for around £300 to £350 without a contract soon enough, the same thing happened with the S4 and S3 in the past. I'm quite happy right now with my Nexus 5 but the battery isn't great, I've read good things about the S5 battery life and it's user removable which is a massive plus for me
