  1. [parsehtml]<p><img src="" /></p> <p><a href="">As expected</a>, Samsung is making an effort to boost the fading popularity of its latest flagship phones after a disappointing sales quarter by rolling the price cut ball just ahead of the <a href="">S6 Edge Plus</a> and <a href="">Note 5&rsquo;s formal introductions</a>.</p> <p>The move should help the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge jump back into the spotlight as Apple puts the finishing touches to <a href="">the upcoming iPhone 6s and 6s Plus</a>. And it&rsquo;s only fitting that T-Mobile is first to show some generosity to their customers after helping it finally <a href="">surpass Sprint in the US carrier ranks</a>.</p> <p>Previously available starting at $680 outright, the non-edgy <a href="">GS6 now costs $580</a> on the Magenta carrier. That&rsquo;s of course with 32GB internal storage, which may not be enough for power users given the lack of a microSD expansion slot.</p> <p>Luckily, the 64GB and 128GB variants are also getting price cuts, the former by 100 bucks and the latter by a cool $200. That actually makes the mid-tier configuration a very impractical purchase, as both the 64GB and 128GB models go for $660 a pop, free of contractual obligations.</p> <p>Meanwhile, the <a href="">dual-curved S6 Edge</a> remains an extravagant buy even after price trims, setting you back $680, $760 and&hellip; $760 respectively in 32, 64 and 128GB configurations. Why does the &ldquo;Uncarrier&rdquo; still sell 64GB variants again?</p> <p>Hard to say, but it&rsquo;s good to keep in mind T-Mobile offers very convenient installments plans for folks with tighter cash flows. As such, the 128GB Galaxy S6 can be yours sans upfront charges or interest fees by coughing up $27.50 a month for two years, whereas the S6 Edge starts at $0 down and 24 monthly payments of $28.33 for the 32GB model or $31.67 for the 128GB variant.</p> <p>Verizon, AT&amp;T, Sprint: the ball is in your court now. Amazon&rsquo;s too, although over there, you can already score an <a href=";ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1438847128&amp;sr=1-1&amp;keywords=galaxy+s6">unlocked S6 for $585</a>.</p><p><a rel='alternate' href='' target='_blank'>Permalink to story.</a></p><p class='permalink'><a rel='alternate' href=''></a></p>[/parsehtml]
