If you think the outright cost of the Samsung Galaxy S5 is a little steep at $929, but you still really want to purchase the device outright, you might like to have a look at Melbourne-based Millennius.
Millennius is currently advertising the device in Black or White for $779 plus shipping – $19, via Express Courier.
There are a couple of caveats, but nothing that should stop you in your tracks. Firstly, the big one: It’s not Australian stock. Millennius is importing the units from overseas, and offers a 1-year warranty. Secondly, because they’re being imported, your S5 won’t ship on launch day. Millennius is expecting their stock to arrive on the 12th of April, and will ship them out a couple of days later.
Important points to be sure, but if you’re saving over $100 on the purchase price, are you concerned if you don’t have the device on day 1?
It’s also worth remembering that the Galaxy S4‘s retail price dropped fairly quickly after its launch at $899 last year. If you’re prepared to wait until after the launch period, you might find similar price drops in store.
Will you buy a Galaxy S5 outright, or on contract? What’s more important to you – saving money, or having the device on day one? Let us know in the comments!
