T-Mobile accepting Samsung Galaxy Note 4 pre-orders
posted by Alan F. / Sep 24, 2014, 12:58 PM
As we told you yesterday, Samsung has moved up the launch schedule for the Galaxy Note 4 in light of the recent launch of the Apple iPhone 6 Plus. Considering that news broke yesterday about iPhone 6 Plus owners finding their new pride and joy suffering from the bends, Samsung might be looking to capitalize on this news by offering a large handset that doesn't bend. Truthfully though, it was the strength in iPhone 6 Plus sales that led Sammy to move up the Galaxy Note 4 launch date. But what was a defensive move by the manufacturer, could turn out to be a case of perfect timing.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will come with a 5.7 inch Super AMOLED display featuring a resolution of 1440 x 2560. That works out to a whopping 515ppi pixel density. Under the hood is a quad-core 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 CPU, with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage inside. Back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 16MP and 3.7MP, respectively. A 3220mAh battery keeps the lights on while Android 4.4 is pre-installed. As T-Mobile has promised for all of its new handsets, the carrier's version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 does offer voice over Wi-Fi.

pre-odered mine for next day delivery and received a text saying it will be delivered by tomorrow which I kind of doubt but I'll see...

can't seem to upgrade on website. Anyone have luck if you were already a customer? **PSA** don't forget to trade-in any smartphone worth $10 or more (if your in the US) and samsung will cover the difference between that and $200

This is not Samsung doing the promotion. It is a data mining company called "Prize Logic". Whether or not this matters to you, well, YMMV.

I might sound a bit naive, but according to this it seems the information provided is used to fulfill the offer. Also, since it links back to Samsung, I think it is because sammy is too big to bother with the paperwork from a promotion like this so they probably hired them to do so. This is all just a guess tho.

Samsung is probably trying to capitalize on the iPhone 6 plus being 3-4 weeks before shipping. I don't know how effective it will be though considering people are buying the 6 plus for the ecosystem and the size, not just the size. They will probably just wait though. This phone looks absolutely fantastic though so hopefully they will hit all notes on the GS6 with a lighter touch wiz. Should be interesting. They couldn't drop the ball more than they did with the GS5. One thing that might be interesting is that how much will the icult in the press knock the GS6 if it removed ip certification in favour of compactness and looks. I personally want them to remove it so it looks like a smaller Note 4 or a slightly bigger Galaxy Alpha. But the 2% that care about it might make a scene. Like how they unfairly knocked the Alpha for not having it.

I agree. I dont "need" IP certification. If there are any trade-offs from adding IP to the S6 (looks, size etc), then I would rather have a phone without it. I have yet to drop a phone or smartphone in water except purposefully with my S5 and Z.

A lighter Touchwiz would definitely be nice but I really don't mind that it's heavy. Lag is not that bad on my Note 3. I simply would prefer that they more closely follow Google's design language in Android L. A cosmetic refresh would suffice for me. For all of those who like to talk negatively about Touchwiz, I still think it is the overall best skin in Android-land.

Have the international version on pre order. . My friend that works at Qualcomm has the 64bit dragons ready but samsung was not happy with its performance much lol.. the 64bit dragons are ready but will see them early next year and later with a wireless charging built in.. Maybe samsung will lower the price a bit on the note due to people buying the new iphone bend plus lol

Anyone know if prepaid T-Mobile customers can preorder and just pay the full retail price up front? Or does the preorder only work for Simple Choice / Simple Plan customers? I just want the phone straight up, and not any plans or monthly payments.

I went to T-mobile store. Try to pre-order and trade in my working smartphone. They said, I can't do the trade in, because the phone is not out yet. I called customer service, they said the same thing. You have to wait for the phone to come out, then you can do the trade in, which is already late to get the samsung rebate. Can anyone know how to preorder and trade in from T-mobile USA? any success? Please comment.
