Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (Sprint version) gets a price cut, though this doesn't make it affordable

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (Sprint version) gets a price cut, though this doesn't make it affordable
A couple of weeks ago, when Sprint started taking pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, it surprised its customers by asking $349.99 (on contract) for the handset - $50 more than what Verizon and AT&T are charging. Fortunately, Sprint has now lowered the price to $299.99, thus matching the prices asked by the two larger US carriers. The off-contract price of Sprint’s Note 4 hasn’t changed, so you’ll have to pay $720 if you want to buy it free of any agreement.

It’s not clear what happens to customers who pre-ordered the Galaxy Note 4 when it was priced at $349.99. Hopefully, Sprint will charge them just $299.99 in the end.

If you pre-order the Note 4 from Sprint now, the carrier will “do its best” to deliver it to you on October 17 (which, by the way, is the handset’s official launch date for the US).

Running Android 4.4 KitKat, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is packed with lots of high-end features, including a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with 1440 x 2560 pixels, an enhanced S Pen, 16 MP rear camera with OIS, 3.7 MP front-facing camera, quad-core 2.7 GHZ Snapdragon 805 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 3220 mAh battery.

When you say more value, since you won't keep the phone forever, you must factor resale value in too. The iPhone 6 plus will bury the Note 4 in resale value. iPhones are far and away, the most valuablel phones, and that's a fact. Check eBay, Gazelle, Craigslist, and third party retailers. Think before you post.

No, I've decided to skip the N4 for now. I may grab one off Craigslist in December, when people are selling them cheap cuz they need Xmas money lol. That's how I got my N3 cheap, but I mos def won't grab one on launch day. I do think its hands down the best phablet on earth though, 6+ included.

I will be getting one as my personal line and move my 6plus to my work line. I do miss having an android phone right now.

I can dig it, I'm still loving my N3 enough combined with how good it is that I don't see the need to upgrade. I saw plenty of need and want to upgrade my 5s to the 6 plus. Soon as I got my 6 plus, I met a guy at Starbucks, and unloaded my 5s for 400 bucks....resale value.

Sold my Note3 4 days ago for $487 albeit with 3 cases and 2 replacement batteries. I think this is good enough resale value while waiting eagerly for the Note4. In meantime my old HTC One X will hold forte

Yea dark! They know apple users are not too bright and will pay whatever. Remember Jimmy Kimmel with the $20 Casio watch with apple logo stuck on it. People were foaming at the mouth over it and it didn't do anything but tell time!!! Lol!!!!!!!!

Check the 3rd party sites, and tell dmakun, to prove it or be quiet. I haven't seen one note 3 selling for that amount, but have seen several iPhones that do. You can say anything on a tech site, as for my post, the proofs in the pudding.

Well as a fact, the ATT USA model always sells higher because it can be used on another carrier like T-Mobile or any GSM carrier overseas when unlocked so those do get more money vs the once locked to Sprint and Verizon because even unlocked, they can still only be used on those carriers. $300 to $400 is still the average selling range for the Note 3, carrier locked or not. I don't believe him either. But I will get $450 for mine because I have 2 cases and my Galaxy Gear with it. So in both cases I am getting at least 50% on both items based on what I paid a year ago which is what I always get. When I buy a phone I buy 2. One of contract and one cash. I both cases I have gotten 50-60% of the original retail price of the phone, even a year later when I sell them.

well that will only hold true if #bendgate is just a passing fad instead of ending up being common months down the road. Nobody will want to buy a phone that can damage super easily.

False. Every Android phone and IPhone I have sold, I have always gotten more on an eBay sale of 50%+ of the retail cost. The Note typically is $699 off contract. When I sold my Note 2 I got $400 for it. That is more than 50% of the retail price for a phone I paid 299.99 for on contract. I also had a 64GB iPhone 4S. I got $600 for it on eBay only because A) it was 64Bit...B) because I only had it 3 months and it was spotless...and C) because the full retail off contact was $849-899 everywhere else. So $600 for a slightly used phone was a very good deal. However everyone who claims Android phones don't get as high resale value as an IPhone released the same year if full of BS. That includes YOU. When I sale my Note for, I don't expect to get to much for it. Usually when I sell my phones they are in pristine condition and I don't use cases. But I was a little bit rougher with my Note 3 and it has scratches on the silver rim. It has only 3. Other than that, its in near-mint condition. I paid 299.99 for it on contract. I expect I will garner at least $350 on eBay because $350 is still more than 50% the original retail cost, its still a profit for me because I paid 4330 with taxes. But since I always include a flipcase and BT I know for a fact I likely will still get $400 to $450 for it. $350 is the bare minimum that I know for a fact I will get. With iPhone I still can get 60% of the retail price on a resale after only 1 year. I have every single time. Sure, I've seen some bids go a bit higher. But again, people will pay very good money to get a slightly used phone with little or no damage no matter the brand or OS. If you are saying the iPhone has a much higher resale value over the Galaxy S, Galaxy Note, Xperia Z and similar top tier phones? You are foolish!

What a beast of a device. I just got my hands on a Note 3 the other day and while I must admit its a tab large, it grew on me eventually. It was hard to give back to its rightful owner. The N4 looks even better except for that monsterous price tag... Z3 here i come -_-"

Wouldn't accept a free note 4 on sprint with that garbage they call a network.

I used to have Sprint and they had a higher contract price with their note 3 in the other companies, it's good to see them making moves to compete on pricing

Samsung is done the note4 isn't good enough to help them with sells,they felled to be innovative just like apple did
