Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge 64GB $698.99 at Costco (Membership Required)

600

Was passing by the vodafone mobile kiosk in Costco today and came across this. Very very good deal IMO as Harvey Norman has it for 888, JB for around 798 and even Kogan has it for 798. Costco membership is required. They have around 10-12 in stock all in either gold or white. Comes with 2 years Samsung warranty and is unlocked so can be used with any carrier. Great deal!

    Please be mindful that the waranty on the phones will be the same as if you buy them from a Vodafone store, not as good as what Costco offers. I did check on it when they first had the S7 & S7 Edge

    I hate the Vodafone kiosk, I always ask "Where are the Windows Phones???"

    Do you need to be a member to go in Costco? Interested in going in there to have a look one of these days..

    •  

      You can join a member and cancel the next day if you're not happy with their price and service.

      •  

        a bit of a hassle..but do anyone check at the door to let members in or sth?

        • +2 votes

          Yes, they do. Even if they don't, you need the member card during checkout at cashier. Also, last week they have install a membership card scan for car parking.

        •  

          @Clementt: Wait, so if you want to join but aren't currently a member you'll have to park somewhere else and walk to join? What if you just want to buy their pizza/hot dogs (which don't need membership)?

        •  

          @snackerjoe: I am not sure if the machine still dispensing ticket, if not, there is always a costco staff around at the barrier gate that can let you in. As long as you pass through the checkpoint at the Costco warehouse entrance, then you should be okay to buy the pizza/hot dogs.

          @Clementt: Cheers. I'm guessing this must be somewhere other than Auburn Sydney because I was just there a couple of weeks ago and didn't see any ticket machines.

          It's only for one of the Melbourne stores (Southbank?)

      You can come for a free preview, just rock up to the customer service desk and ask for a pass, and they will make one for you to come in and have a look. You can't buy anything but I guess you will have a much better idea once you take a look personally if it's worth it for you.

    Marshmallow for the Samsung Galaxy S6 has been out for a little bit now and it has improved the smartphone, two issues I had seem to be resolved, or at least better. Lag has been reduced but not removed and Bluetooth has improved with auto connecting to nearby devices after being switched on again.

    Battery life is still crap, though charges quickly.

    •  

      It's not android's problem. I never has lag and bluetooth problem on my S6 since June last year, and I use couple bluetooth headsets for phone call about hour a day. The standby battery life has improved a lots with android 6.

        Did I write it was Android's problem? Samsung add their own changes to their updates, that is why when Google released Marshmallow in October 2015 it took Samsung to only recently to release their version of it.

        Regarding lag, do a Google search, it is a significant problem of the phone, I didn't just make it up. It was linked to TouchWiz, people using Launcher replacers such as Nova was able to get around this problem.

        As for Bluetooth, prior to Marshmallow update if I disabled Bluetooth on the phone and then enabled it again I had to select the device I wanted to connect too. Now the Smartphone automatically connects to the last device when enabled, a much better improvement as I can turn on my Bluetooth while I walk to the car and when I turn the car on it links, rather than having to sit in the car and connect manually. This is also a known problem of the Samsung Galaxy S6.

        I don't know about Standby time, but I personally don't care about that, I care about operational use and it is crap. My former Sony Xperia Z3 has a much better battery life. The update does nothing about that, not that I imagined it would.

          Did you get the point that I have no problem with MY s6? Besides, think again about "don't care about standby time", only if you power off the phone whenever you don't use it, then you can ignore it.

        •  

          @leetec:

          Did you get the point that I was telling people the S6 has improved with the update, so that any original reviews with those problems are now invalid? They were significant issues, that is why many people complained about it online.

          As for battery life, it is still crap, regardless of standby time improvements. Improved standby means that, if you don't use your phone it lasts longer, great! I actually want a device to last longer while being used.

          Also you didn't clarify what you meant with "It's not android's problem", do you want to clarify what you mean or are you going keep telling me how great the S6 runs for you?

    Remember this? https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/214061
    I can't bring myself to + any Samsung S6 deals that are above this price, especially since it was 7 months ago (superseding and all that).
    Scored one thanks to a fellow OzBargainer letting me have his code!

    Does JB still have the $200 trade in?

    What is so exciting about S6? I would have interested if it was a S7.You could get a S7 for about $800 so why bother with S6?

    •  

      IR blaster is dropped in S7. In my case I cannot accept a smartphone not being able to control my electronic devices with IR receiver, like TVs, receiver, projector, Android box, aircons etc.

      So where could a new, Aus stock S7 be picked up then for 800?

  • +2 votes

    I wouldn't touch a 6. Get a 5 or get a 7.

    Agreed. S5's are great (current owner), S6's left alot to desired (work phone) and the S7 took the best bits from the S5 and S6.

    On a completely unrelated note, just wondering of anyone's arse stinks?

    I got one brand new in box from cash convertors a few weeks ago for $600

    what's so bad about S6? Hardware or software issues?

  •  

    I love this phone highly recommend. Never had a 5 looks like a brick, I got the 6 edge at jb on the $200 trade in deal and never looked back. had the LG G5 before and it doesn't hold a candle to the s6 edge. great phone & this is a great price
