    Why is the Samsung Galaxy Indulge Still Expensive?

    This phone has been out since February and the price is still at that $300 mark-Why? Usually after a phone has been out for a while you will see a price drop. That's not the case with the Indulge. Does anyone know why?

    Another thing I don't appreciate a 3MP camera for this price. At least give us a 5MP w/ led flash. Cricket is the worst at selling phones this is why I left them just after 3 months.

    Ok so you aren't a Cricket Customer but you care about the price of phones and features?

    Troll.

    FYI the Indulge came out in late May/early June and it's still expensive because it's still Cricket's top of the line handset. Until it's replaced or end of life'd the price will stay where it is. Do you think that because its been out for a few months, the cost to make it dropped?

    I keep hoping cricket will come out with their version of Siri so i could program it to complain like my ex-girlfriends lovingly did. Is there an app for that?, LOL.

    LOL, I don't think there is something like that just yet. It wouldn't be up to Cricket, it would be up to Google (Android) or a developer to create an app that would do that.

    You're a fool if you consider this piece of **** a highend smartphone with its 3.5h battery life yes thats 3.5h because if you're a heavy user like me This is how long the battery life will last. Secondly it has a 3mp camera. What 1ghz smartphone has a 3MP camera???...................... Exactly not a highend phone. I am happy with my verizon droid bionic. Thank You sweetie.

    Like Woof said, it is Cricket's "top of the line handset" right now. The price might go down with the launch of the Huawei Mercury.

    Much like the people who troll the Cricket Facebook page and complain after they have left Cricket for another carrier. Good for you. I'm glad you love your Bionic. I hear it's a very nice phone. I am sure you love your two year contract and amazingly affordable rate plan too. Good for you.

    The neat difference between Facebook and here is that we don't really like people who come in and call people names and act immature. We will do what Facebook won't do. We'll ban you.

    The explanation stands. The Indulge is Cricket's top of the line phone at the moment. Since you no longer have the service, I don't see why you care what the price is. You don't have to like it or accept it or even talk about it...

    . It may suit your needs better.

    Have a nice day.

    Here's why The Samsung Indulge is still expensive:

    Samsung Is A Quality Household Name
    It has a Keyboard On the Phone
    It has a 1 Ghz processor

    When this phone was released at the time the processing speed alone put the other phones to shame. People like speed and Samsung gave it to them. Therefore, they had to be paid for what it's worth

    The Blackberry Curve 8530 has only a 528 Mhz processor and the other phones have either 600 to 800 Mhz processors.

    Knewsom32 told me about "Iris". Try searching for it in the Android Market.

    I was really thinking they would lower the price of the Samsung Indulge for Black Friday, but it is still at $309.99 in my market. That could change though. Cricket likes to change their prices a lot.

    It's nice to see that the price of the Samsung Indulge finally went down since the launch of the Huawei Mercury.

    It is now at $129.99. http://www.cricketusers.com/cricket-...ice-watch.html
