May 10th Update:  AT&T has released the 32 GB Galaxy S4 on their website and also in stores.

May 13th Update: Verizon Wireless announced today that they will release the Galaxy S4 online and in stores on May 23rd, a week ahead of the original scheduled release date.

Looking to get your hands on the hottest smartphone on the market?  We have aggregated all the top vendors for the Samsung Galaxy S4.  See table below for the latest price.

We found five carriers that offer service on for the Galaxy S4.  Although, there are rumors of other carriers offering the service, we could not find the device offered directly on their websites.

If you choose not to upgrade directly from the carriers, you might be able to score a better deal from third party vendors.

  • For AT&T service, you should check out Amazon for $168.
  • Verizon Wireless customers can upgrade for $20 less than its flagship store for $179 at Target Mobile.  Verizon is currently taking preorders on the phone, it has not yet officially released the phone.  The shipping date is May 30th.
  • Sprint is going all out, offering service at just about any big name stores, ranging from $149.99 to $249.99.  Keep in mind, the $149.99 price includes the $100 discount applied to customers switching service from another carrier.  Consider it a customer acquisition cost to Sprint.  For current customers, the best deal for Sprint can be found at Target.
  • T-Mobile is offering the Galaxy S4 for $149.99, but the price is essentially a down payment, user is expected to fork over additional $20 a month for 24 months.  The pricing is not the traditional plans you have seen.  If you want to find out more about T-Mobile’s new phone plan, Maggie from CNET can explain for you here.
  • We have not seen U.S. Cellular offering the phone at third party stores, but they do offer on their site for the standard $199.99 price.

    You’re not comparing the cost of the device at different retailers, you’re comparing down payments.

    All the carriers play games with prices and bury the true cost of the phone. This breakdown has been the most useful comparison of the phone’s offering at different retailers and alerted me to the amazon discount (which is apples to apples cheaper than buying from AT&T).

    Kudos for a very useful post. Now I need to find one for the S3.
