Today's the day T-Mobile makes the Galaxy S5 available for pre-order, following closely behind AT&T and US Cellular. Eager customers are now welcome over at the carrier's website, where they can call dibs on a Galaxy S5. No one will be charged until the devices are actually shipped, but the handset will go for $660 upfront or $27.50 a month for twenty-four months.
T-Mobile's prices closely match those of AT&T, though its full retail price is $10 pricier than the latter. Read More
Sprint is joining the ranks of carriers that will take your cash for the promise of delivering a Galaxy S5 to your door next month. The device can be obtained in two ways on the Now Network – $199.99 (after a $50 mail in rebate) with a contract, or $0 down and monthly payments with Easy Pay.
The big day has finally arrived – you can lay down some hard-earned cash on Samsung's latest and greatest. AT&T is asking $199.99 for the Galaxy S5 in either white or black, with shipping currently slated for April 8th. You can expect the device to show up on or around the April 11th release date.
The first two US carriers to tell you when they'll take your Galaxy S5 money are AT&T and US Cellular. Both carriers have announced the start of GS5 pre-orders on March 21st. The Galaxy S5 will cost $199 on-contract with either carrier and $649 without (only listed by AT&T).

If you didn't get enough coverage of Samsung's new devices from our own Mobile World Congress posts, Sammy has posted its own official hands-on videos for the three new gadgets introduced at the show. The Samsung YouTube page now has in-depth videos for the Galaxy S5 and the Gear 2 and Gear Fit.

We're still a bit more than a month out from Samsung's Galaxy S5 and Gear smart watches, but Samsung is looking to keep the hype train going with its new intro videos. You know the drill – it's super-pretty, everything works perfectly, and there's calming music in the background.
The Galaxy S5 video goes down the Samsung-approved bullet points one by one, showing off each feature. There's the camera, heart rate monitor, MIMI WiFi, ultra power saving mode, fingerprint reader, and so on. Read More
At this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, three Android smartphone unveilings really did stand above the rest: Sony's Xperia Z2, LG's G Pro 2, and Samsung's Galaxy S5.
We know which one is going to sell best, which will have the biggest marketing budget, and which has more plastique - the Galaxy S5's success in spite any of any perceived shortcomings is all but assured. That's just kind of how these things go. Read More
