Here's what Galaxy Gifts Samsung is offering to Note 4 and Note Edge buyers
Galaxy Gifts - this is the name of a collection of apps and subscriptions that Samsung is offering (for free) to owners of select Galaxy devices. Naturally, the brand new Galaxy Note 4 also comes with Galaxy Gifts, and Samsung recently detailed what this means for the phablet’s buyers.

The freebies included in Galaxy Gifts for the Note 4 are divided into four categories: Productivity (50 GB of Dropbox storage for 2 years, Sketch Book, Hancom Office, ArtRage, Real Player Cloud, etc), Entertainment (Gameloft games, 3-month subscription to OnLive, etc), News & Reading (subscriptions to The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg Businessweek+, and Audible), and Lifestyle & others (CameraAce, Perfect 365, Magisto, Live 360). You can find the complete list at the source link below.

These gifts will also be available to owners of the Galaxy Note Edge - which is somewhat similar to the Note 4, but ads a curved display for a touch of uniqueness. 

It’s worth mentioning that Galaxy Gifts content does not come pre-loaded on any Samsung device - thus, if you want it, you’ll have to download it yourself.

While the Galaxy Note 4 is already available in some markets (and will be launched in many others, including the US, starting this week), the Note Edge hasn't been released anywhere in the world yet - but it should go on sale at the end of October, first in Japan.

Dropbox is a worthwhile gift. The only reason I use Dropbox is because I got 50GB free from Samsung for two years. If I had to actually pay for Dropbox, I would pick something else.

"Dropbox is a worthwhile gift" BAHAHAHAHA! You know nothing about backups. A fool and their money are soon parted. Cloud storage is the biggest scam of the modern era. What a waste of money! HAHAHA AT YOU!

Auto pic upload to dropbox is a great way to share pics with family when you don't live in the same country. Would I have bought it no but for free it worked out great for me when I lived in China.

Yes, of course. Just like the free iPhone 6 with trade in of the iPhone 5s.

Is not bloatware since some of the above mentioned apps are pretty useful, furthermore they are not installed as system apps by default, consuming space whether you want them or not and you sir are a troll

I have note 2 note 3 note pro 12.2 all comes with non removable apps. App like New York Time has zero value to me. No recourse to uninstall. Using up my storage space. If they make it user removable than i have no objection. I stall my Note 4 purchase because i can't bear to look at another 20 bloatware apps. My XiaoMi phone had no such problems. They don't bundled much bloatware apps to begin with and even face book app that was bundled is user removable. Its Samsung policy to include bloatware, i just not buying it till it gets better.

Re read his comment. And read mine carefully, as stated above these apps you must download your self, they are not administrator apps so you can uninstal them if they are preloaded, plus I don't think you know what bloat ware actually means. BTW storage for the note 4 is 27 GB

I think he meant that regardless of these great freebies, the bloat ware that already comes with the phone is not helping the case for him. They should remove all bloat (or make it removable) and add these freebies too. Bloat that's on most flagships is my biggest gripe - the redundancy of apps included on Samsung and other phones is one of the biggest reasons the go back before return period ends.

The definition of "Bloatware" is not, "apps I don't plan to use that came with my phone. If that were the case, iPhone is FULL of bloatware! Well, not "full" as in memory capacity is full.

Some of you people are unbelievable... To you bloatware is basically any app that doesn't come with stock android which is wrong.

Samsung, user removable third parties app please. To me only Google apps and Samsung in house is acceptable. Third-party non removable apps are bloatware. Its take up additional space being non removable. App update also need to use additional space instead of over writing existing space. Apple policy on not having third-party bloatware is most appealing aspect of their platform.

Apple also include 3rd party apps such as YouTube, Google Maps, Yahoo weather etc... You still don't understand the concept of bloat ware.

YouTube, Google Maps even Samsung own S Health is acceptable but not evernote, games, new york times. Those i can download myself if i want them instead of going thru the trouble of disabling them. Non removable apps are simply a waste of every one time and storage. I understand its might be good for some app developers for marketing their new apps to casual user but make it removable. Its good for all parties. Advance user will never want to try out pre-installed un-removable apps as we found it offensive.

Apple does not include those apps!!!! It used those services as a source of info for their own developed apps - even the Google maps that iOS used back in the day was an app developed by Apple not Google. YouTube app back in the day was absolutely the best for which Apple paid to google to insure iOS users never see an ad wile watching YouTube (but still was not an app designed by Google, but instead by Apple). These apps were not developed by yahoo, Google, etc. bloat ware is redundant and mostly an app forced on by sponsors that paid in advance to be included within your phone - so that the manufacturer can cut the cost of the device. Apples standards are quite higher when it comes to bloat - not even carriers are allowed to tinker with MY phone.

Only thing I would use here is the Gameloft games, and I wouldn't even use those very much...

I used to have 50 GB from Dropbox when I bought SIII, now it's expired and if I buy Note 4 I get it again. I loved that 50 GB. Really great for automatic backup.

Not really. Pay for backup?! that's about as dumb as buying sod for a lawn you don't have b/c you live in an apt complex whose grass concerns are included in rent price.

Where did he say he paid anything for storage???? You seem just so hot to jump on dropbox you couldn't even finish two sentences.

Gifts?! Meh, maybe $50 in app or music purchases. I don't find any of those particularly valuable. Oh and "cloud" storage, BAHAHAHA! The scam of the modern era. A fool and their money are soon parted. Google mail and gdrive are free. Besides, only a moron would pay for monthly online storage when amortization of an external hard drive is MUCH cheaper per Gb. What? Can't wait until you get home to sync, you need it to be automatic while out-n-about? 1. Why? What are you doing that necessitates such a thing? 2. AW WW WW, WAHHHH, you have to sync at home, life is SOOOO hard! It's SUCH a hard thing to wait and do it at home, WAHHHH! LOL at YOU. PS, they won, you lost.

Wow, someone has their panties bunched up. Dropbox does offer free storage too, not all 50 gb but 25, I believe. Yes drive offers free storage too but it's for everything associated with your Gmail account; Gmail, docs, Picasa, android backup. That can go pretty quickly if you're heavily entrenched in the Google ecosystem. There are plenty of other free services too, so I agree that one should exhaust those options too but if you want the convenience of having cloud backups all in one spot you will pay more for gb in the cloud then say carrying a USB passport or the like. However, cloud storage offers redundancy and THAT means your data should be safer than even backing up to your pc. If your house burns down and you only backed up to the melted box, then what? Laughing like a loon only makes me think you're foolish for not really looking after your data.
