It seems that Samsung and the US carriers who want to sell the Galaxy Note Edge are very "proud" of their device. That "pride" commands a price ranging between $399 to $429 ON CONTRACT! Feel free to spew your drink out in a fanning motion as you read that ridiculous price. While the YOUM display on this device is pretty slick and unique, it's hard to justify a crazy price like that. The off contract price is, of course, also a monstrous amount... roughly $840 to $950 depending on the carrier.
We suppose if you simply had extra money to blow, then this isn't that bad of a price. At least you would be getting a unique conversation piece that isn't about vanity so much as it is about appreciation for innovation. That is in contrast to the thousands of dollars those gold encrusted premium rebuilt versions of smartphones typically sell for. At least the Note Edge is a bit more justified from a value perspective.
Also, here at HQ we admit that we wouldn't scoff at anyone who purchased one, but would want to marvel at the phone in action instead.
Here are the links below to the three carrier versions:
