AT&T is already shipping the Samsung Galaxy Note5 to some lucky buyers
AT&T started accepting pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Samsung Galaxy Note5 at 3pm EDT yesterday. While shipments weren't expected to go out until August 21st, at least one lucky PhoneArena reader has received a notice from the carrier saying that his 64GB Black Sapphire Samsung Galaxy Note5 is already enroute.

While the name of the lucky phablet buyer has been covered up, we can see that the device is being shipped to Phoenix, Arizona. This seems to be speedy work on AT&T's part. The mobile operator was also pretty quick to announce yesterday when it would start reserving handsets for its customers.

Has anyone else been surprised today with a notice that says that their newly ordered Galaxy S6 edge+ or Galaxy Note5 has been shipped? Let us know by dropping your comments in the box below.

DJ's really upset about the lack of IR Blaster so probably not.

I think he said that he's going back to the regular S6 Edge.

LMAOOOOO! I knew it was coming. I think I'm gonna grab a standard Edge next week. They'll be cheaper once these are available. I really want the blaster, and $900 without one sucks. That was funny though. +1

What app do you use for your IR blaster? Its the one feature on my Note 4 I don't use, many because I haven't found an app I like.

Anymote is one I used for awhile. Its pretty nice to have one app to control 5 tvs and 3 different blu ray players.

Mine was the Peel Remote. I used it to control DirecTV, my Phillips, Samsung, and AOC TV's, as well as our garage. The Note 4 uses a different called Smart Remote.

I was going to upgrade to the Note 5, but my S6 will keep me satisfied until the S7.

Why don't you get it unlocked from amazon? Since you're gonna keep it atleast until the S7 is released?

Well, I just didn't see it as a worthy upgrade from the S6. The only major differences are the S-Pen and bigger battery.

I don't really do unlocked devices bro. I bought the original HTC Hero unlocked back in 09', and it was the worst experience. Trying to get the MMS settings to work for the U.S., to get it to send pics/vids was horrible. I know times have changed, and you can pretty much just pop in your SIM card and go, but I prefer carrier devices, cause I know it'll work right out of the box. It's just a more reassuring and comfortable buying experience for me.

Back when i was in the States, I was on t-mobile and both of the phones I bought during my tike there were unlocked(S5 and Note 3), and i didn't encounter any issues. Getting quicker updates were one of the reasons I always go unlocked.

I think it was due to that version only being 2G edge, and not compatible with U.S. 3G bands. Couldn't do MMS on edge networks back then. Now I don't take chances, I just go carrier.

eh, why upgrade just in 6 months?
Wait for atleast a year before upgrading.

If I had a choice of 3GB of ram and IR blaster S6 vs 4GB and no IR blaster Note 5/Edge plus I'm picking the S6.
I can live with the non-removable battery and no SD Card but I use the IR blaster in 3 rooms at least once daily. For me that was a very stupid move by Samsung especially when you pimp the S6 Edge plus as a media device.
If the upcoming watch has a IR blaster I might be able to forgive them but I doubt it. Maybe that's the answer; put the IR sensor in these watches like those old school casio tv control watches. Then it wouldn't matter what phone you have.

The actual lucky Note owners are those with editions prior to the one announced yesterday (their phablet has removable battery and SD card expansion).

I have a GS5 and would buy a Note 4 only if I could get it running KitKat.

I hated my GS5 and switched to the GS6 as soon as I could. I couldn't care less about the lack of a removable battery or mSD slot. What I did miss was the Water Proofing which still wasn't a deal breaker as I got a lot more of what I needed in the GS6. What is a deal breaker for me in the new Note5 which I planned on switching to because I wanted a bigger screen is the lack of an IR blaster. The convenience of not needing multiple remotes for all of my electronics is something I can't be without.

Why did you hate your GS5?

Horrible lag every now and then. Id hard reset and then it would be fine for sometime but it came back again (I never filled it up with data and always had at least 5 Gigs internal free nor did I install stupid apps). Inserting a memory card made things worse. Somehow every memory card (all class 10) I tried made it slow down even more. I also hated the ugly design, the puny speakers, the annoying fingerprint sensor ( it worked 99% of the time but it was very inconvenient) and the over load of features that didn't really work well but took up space *glares at tilt to scroll* No i'm not saying it was a bad phone. Id take it any day over a similarly spec'd htc or a nexus ( I hate Vanilla android) but its all the little niggles that annoyed me and made me start hating something that would have been perfect with some refinement. The S6 has been perfect for me. Its refined everything I cared about. It looks good, its fast and rarely stutters, the speaker is louder, the fingerprint sensor is amazing, the screen is jaw dropping (I'm fine with 1080p though. I find QHD an over kill and a battery drainer) But i'd take the S6 any day over the S5. It also doesnt hurt that the fast charge on the S6 is fater than the fast charge on the s5. I usually forget to charge my phone before going out and it would be at 2%. 15 minutes of charge time and I have enough to last me till I get back.

the Note 5 reminds me of a fancy looking Oven.. though it doesn't act like SD810

I checked and my pay off balance to be able to upgrade is a bit high still so ill have to pass. For the price they're charging for this the only lucky ones are Samsung that people are actually buying this device lol

really can't call that lucky. He will just be disappointed a lot earlier than people who get phone next week.
