At this year’s Mobile World Congress, Samsung took the stage to show its latest vision in cutting-edge technology for Android smartphones. The mouth-watering devices each feature waterproofing, tons of space, and bigger batteries than ever before. Now, the two gorgeous phones are finally available to buy in stores in the U.S., Europe, Australia, Singapore, and South Korea.
We know you may be itching to get one yourself, so here’s our complete guide to getting your very own Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge come with 32GB of internal storage in the U.S. However, the MicroSD slot means that you add up to an additional 200GB if you wish. The Galaxy S7 comes in both black and gold, and the S7 Edge comes in black, gold, and silver.
Unlike Apple, which has 268 retail stores all across the United States, Samsung’s most prominent American retail presence is in its “Samsung Zone” locations, dotted across many Best Buy locations. However, this isn’t stopping Samsung from featuring the S7 on its website.
For those who want to check out the phone before putting their money down, Samsung has preview versions available for viewing at its Samsung Zone locations. The retail prices are between $620 and $695 for the S7 and between $720 and $795 for the S7 Edge, depending on your carrier.
Samsung is also giving away a free Gear VR along with a six-game bundle when you purchase either the Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge. You’ll have to claim your gift through Samsung’s promotional site and wait about four to six weeks to receive it.
If you’re a fan of Big Red, you’ll get a free Gear VR or Gear S2 with the purchase of either a Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge. If you’re switching from another carrier, Verizon will cover your termination fees.
The Galaxy S7 will run you $672 or $28 per month for 24 months, and the S7 Edge costs $792 or $33 per month for 24 months.
AT&T customers who buy the S7 or the S7 Edge will get a free Gear VR and 6 game bundle with the purchase of either phone. Unfortunately, AT&T happens to be the most expensive of all the U.S. carriers.
The Galaxy S7 costs $695 or $23.17 per month for 30 months, and the S7 Edge goes for $795 or $26.50 per month for 30 months.

The Galaxy S7 costs $670 or $27.92 per month for 24 months, and the S7 Edge is $780 or $32.50 for 24 months.
Sprint might be the fourth largest carrier, but it has the best deals for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Just like the other carriers, you get a free Gear VR with your purchase.
You can opt for the new Galaxy Forever much like its own iPhone Forever, giving customers the latest and greatest smartphone every year for a single monthly fee on the basis of a leasing program. If you opt for the lease, then you pay $26 per month for the S7 and $30.50 per month for the S7 Edge over 24 months.
If you don’t want the leasing program, the Galaxy S7 will cost $650 or $27.09 for 24 months, and the S7 Edge will set you back $750 or $31.35 per month for 24 months.
If you’re still hung up on buying a new phone on contract, Sprint has you covered. You can grab the Galaxy S7 for $200 or the S7 Edge for $300. Keep in mind that you’ll also pay an additional $25 per month for your monthly access charge.
As a further incentive, you get a 50 percent discount when you buy a second Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge. The deal works when you buy two Galaxy S7s, two Galaxy S7 Edges, or one Galaxy S7 and one Galaxy S7 Edge.
If that isn’t enough of a incentive, Sprint will chop your existing bill in half and take care of your termination fees if you switch carriers.
U.S. cellular has the best price if you can afford to pay for your phone in full. The Galaxy S7 costs only $620, and the S7 Edge goes for $720. If you need an installment plan, then it will run you $672 or $28 per month for 24 months for the Galaxy S7 and $720 or $32.50 per month for 24 months for the S7 Edge.
You can also grab the S7 or S7 Edge on a two-year contract for $200 and $300 respectively.
Just like the other carriers, you’re purchase means you’ll be eligible for a free Gear VR as well.
Best Buy carries the AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon carrier versions of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. As a further incentive to buy your shiny new phone from Best Buy instead of directly from your carrier, the retailer is offering a free 64GB MicroSD card with your purchase. That’s in addition to the free Gear VR offer.
The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are available at a number of other retail stores as well, including Target, Staples, Walmart, and others. Just as you’d expect with a flagship like the Samsung Galaxy line, it will make its way everywhere in the coming weeks.
