Virgin Mobile, Boost Mobile Offer S5

S5

It seems like everyone is abuzz with news about Samsung’s latest phone in the Galaxy series, the Galaxy S5. And now, if you wanted to get in on the action, Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile USA have announced that they now carry Samsung’s newest flagship for the prepaid market. The device, of course, does cost quite a pretty penny but if you have been wanting to get your hands on it, then this is still good news, as BYOD will also likely support the Galaxy S5.

Features of the S5 include:

  •  5.1″ full HD Super AMOLED display
  • 16 megapixel camera with fast autofocus
  • S Health so users can track their fitness goals with a built-in heart rate monitor
  • Ultra power saving mode to extend battery life
  • Smart Switch so switching over any contacts is easy
  • fingerprint scanner to quickly unlock the phone
  • 4G LTE speed compatibility

If you purchase the phone through Boost Mobile or Virgin Mobile, then the retail price is $599.99. However with some savvy shopping, I expect you could purchase it used for far less than that. Just make sure that the phone is compatible and unlocked.
