Those prices are stratospheric compared to the retail pricing we are seeing in the US. Verizon has the Note 3 listed at $699 full retail, AT&T, $724. Neither of the carriers have Galaxy Gear listed separately, but Verizon offers an off-contract package of the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear for $999, suggesting a $300 price for Samsung’s new watch.
Buying directly from Samsung offers you unbranded, unlocked devices, so that is part of the premium. Still, To ease the pain of value proposition, Samsung is offering the first 500 people to pre-order both devices from Samsung’s Experience Store at Westfield Stratford a £50 discount if they also trade in their old device. The old device can be in any condition, working or not working.
