The Galaxy S5 is now available at all major carriers, but if you have decided to wait a while before getting the handset, you’re in luck. Amazon is offering Verizon’s variant of the Galaxy S5 for just $99, which is a $100 discount on a device that launched just a week ago. Verizon’s own website is offering the Galaxy S5 for $199 on a new two-year contract. It is unclear as to how long this promotion would last, but if you’re in the market for a new handset, then head over to Amazon from the source link below to get the Verizon-branded version of the Galaxy S5.
Verizon has made a few changes to its version of the Galaxy S5. First off, the Download Booster service that allows you to download simultaneously using Wi-Fi and LTE connections is disabled. It was also discovered that Verizon has blocked the usage of the fingerprint scanner for authentication of digital purchases. Verizon is the only carrier to have blocked this feature, which is strange considering that Samsung is touting it as one of the major features of the Galaxy S5. Amazon was also offering the unlocked version of the Galaxy S5 for $699, but it looks like that device is out of stock.
