Samsung has come up with another huge success with the successor to the Galaxy S3. While the S3 was and is very popular, the next version in the S4 is looking to far surpass in sales and benefit to Samsung. While it looks to be a very popular phone, it would appear that Verizon Wireless is following as the last of the big 4 US carriers to sell the Galaxy S4.
Verizon has started selling the Samsung Galaxy S4 as of May 23rd at a price of $199.99 for the base model with 16 GB. And that comes with the expected 2 year contract as well for the subsidized price. Or you can pay the full price of $649.99 to avoid that 2 year contract. The bigger issue remains as to why Verizon Wireless has become the last of the Big 4 US carriers to get it for sales to customers? It is rather strange.
As was the case last year, AT&T was far ahead of Verizon in getting the Galaxy S4 to sell. And even Sprint and T-Mobile have been selling the Galaxyy S4 before Verizon this year. Why is it that Verizon has such huge sales and influence in the market that they cannot be the first US wireless carrier to be selling the new Galaxy S4? It seems that there is no valid explanation for why this happens at Verizon.
It is being repeated this year for the Galaxy S4 and is likely to continue in the future. For those of us who are loyal to Verizon because of their great coverage, the idea of having to wait weeks after the other carriers to be able to purchase the Galaxy S4 does not sound right. But, that is the reality. When this situation may be resolved is anyone’s guess.
For now, your can order your own Galaxy S4 from the Verizon Wireless web site for delivery.
