You can now buy the best flagship phone Samsung has ever made for just $79

Galaxy S5 Price

Samsung’s Galaxy S5 might not be the most exciting smartphone the world has ever seen, but it’s still easily the best flagship phone Samsung has ever made. It has a gorgeous full HD display, a lightning-fast processor, a shockingly good camera and plenty more that make the Galaxy S5 one of the most capable handsets to date. Sales haven’t been terribly impressive and Samsung’s stock is down more than 12.5% over the past 3 months as a result, but that certainly doesn’t make the device any less appealing to smartphone buyers — and if you’re in the market for a new smartphone, now is the perfect time to consider the S5.

Starting Friday, RadioShack is offering the Samsung Galaxy S5 for just $79 on a new two-year contract with Verizon Wireless. The offer is available to both new and existing Verizon subscribers, and it represents the lowest price ever on the Galaxy S5 at RadioShack; the nationwide retailer had previously made the S5 available starting at $79, but that deal required a trade-in.

The Galaxy S5 features a 5.1-inch display with 1080p resolution, a quad-core 2.5GHz processor, a 16-megapixel rear camera, 2GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, microSDXC support, a 2,800 mAh battery and Android KitKat.
