Best prices for the Samsung Galaxy S5
Thinking of getting the latest Galaxy S5, but want the best deal around? The fingerprint scanner and other features can be yours for as little as Rs2,200 every month.
The Galaxy S5 is Samsung’s latest smartphone and it rivals Apple’s iPhone 5s with its fingerprint scanner, dust and water resistance and camera features. But picking up one now can be expensive. Nonetheless, you can get a good deal if you shop around. Here we’ve done the legwork for you. We give you the best prices for the Samsung GS5 from various online avenues so that you don’t have to take the extra effort to find the best deal.
We’ve even included EMI options, if you’d like to get the phone on finance. However, these are just a rough indication of what you’ll be paying monthly. It’s best to contact your bank for more information on EMIs.
We’ve only looked at the white, 16GB version of the handset. Prices for other colour variants may differ.

The Samsung India eStore is offering the phone for Rs51,500 but also includes a cash discount of Rs5,000 for your next purchase at the store.
Is EMI your best option?
Undoubtedly, you’d be shelling out more if you chose to pay in monthly installments rather than at one go. For example, let’s look at the EMI options available at Infibeam. The GS5 costs Rs47,998 (or almost Rs48,000). For the 3-month EMI, you’d be paying Rs17,511 every month, taking the total cost of the phone to Rs52,533. On the 12-month EMI scheme you’d be paying Rs4,600 every month which would eman you’d be paying Rs55,200 in total – well beyond the one-time cost (Rs7,200 extra).
So if you are looking out for the best price and want to save everywhere you can, stay away from EMIs. It is, however, a good option if you don’t have the entire amount and if you don’t mind paying slightly more to have a new gadget.
