Boost Mobile Offering the Samsung Galaxy S5 in May

April 11, 2014 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Boost Mobile has just sent along a nice little note that they will be carrying the “Next Big Thing” come next month. Right now they are allowing you to sign up for information, but no word on pricing or availability, or even pre-orders. Hopefully that’ll come along pretty soon. The Samsung Galaxy S5 launched today on T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint and Verizon. However, it appears to be sold out online at some retailers already. Not that I’m surprised.

Remember that with Boost Mobile you are going to be paying the full price of the device, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see them asking over $600 for this thing. Because they are a prepaid carrier, there’s no subsidies here. If you want to get it for $199, then you’ll need to sign a contract with Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile or Verizon. It’s also important to note that Boost Mobile does run on Sprint’s network. So you’ll want to be sure that you get good service from Sprint in your area before jumping on the Boost Mobile bandwagon. However, they do have some pretty great plans, as low as $35/month.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 – as a refresher – features a 5.1-inch 1080p display which is said to be the best display ever made. Along with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage with a microSD card slot, 16MP camera on the back, 2MP shooter on the front, along with a 2800mAh battery and Android 4.4.2. It’s pretty much a beast. It does also have the heart rate sensor on the back as well as the fingerprint sensor on the front, underneath the home button. Which I’m hearing mixed reviews about right now. Since I haven’t gotten my hands on one yet.
