The Samsung Galaxy S6 is expensive, especially the Edge version. We have to spend a pretty penny to get them, but did you know the actual cost of production is amazingly low? A new report is stating the Verizon Galaxy S6 Edge with 64 GB of internal storage is one of the most expensive phones to make, even pricier than iPhones.
This specific device would cost $290 to build (that would include parts and production. That’s about $34 more than the Galaxy S5 and quite a bit more than the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, which were estimated at $247 and $263, accordingly.
Opinion: So there you go – the Samsung Galayx S6 Edge costs more to make than an iPhone 6 Plus! Don’t get too upset about the profit margins, though. Remember, companies have to spend a lot of extra money in advertising, employees and innovation.

Opinion: I have never been a big fan of these running games, but this one looks like it has some very interesting elements. Do we have any readers in the Netherlands who have checked it out?
