    Is it possible that we haven't gotten pricing details on the Galaxy Note 4 because Samsung was waiting to learn the cost of the phablet version of the iPhone 6?

    They should or their done. No way they can compete with that. 64gb of storage... All the way up to 128gb for the price its too good to pass up. BUT... there is alot to lose by switching over to the iphone, particularly freedom so that is a tough call. It is very tempting though and with Samsung waiting too long to put out their Note, its gonna hurt some too.

    I highly doubt it. In all reality Samsung probably knows how much the Note 4 will cost and when it will release. I gotta admit as much as I hate Apple they don't make their customers wait a whole month or more to get their hands on the latest tech! Makes me want to at least give the larger iPhone a try.....

    Exactly. I have alot of interest in the Note 4, but because they want to make people wait so long for it, I feel like wanting to at least give the iPhone a shot first. If Sammy wouldve released the Note 4 within a few weeks or so, I would be all for it, but that long wait has me looking elsewhere right now

    There is a lot going for the new I phone besides a big screen. They are promising improved call quality, something no other new phone has paid any attention to recently. They promise great battery life, improved sensor, speedy focusing, a A8 64 bit processor, and a 64 gig version for 399 on contract. Moreover, it will be compatible with the Apple Watch that blows away the Samsung Gear or any other smart watch now out.
    It doesn't have an S-pen or SD slot, true. But KitKat has all but ruined a lot of the SD card usability. I don't use the S-pen enough now, either, to miss it. While I am not a fan of IOS, IOS 8 promises some major improvements. I won't miss the screw ups of almost every Android system upgrade. That's for sure.
    I think Samsung needs to worry. For once, I would seriously consider an Apple phone.

    It will probably the same as the Note 3 was one year ago as it should be.

    What if Samsung just made their announcement in October, then they wouldn't be making people wait. I don't understand that argument about Samsung.

    This might be another discussion but I know there is push from Google to remove SD cards from phones. This would happen much easier in my opinion if there were greater storage on android. It seems the majority of internal storage on android is around 32GB. Does anyone know why android phone manufacturers can't or won't increase internal storage?

    Apple is the peoples temple of technology and Steve Jobs was the Jim Jones. No matter what, Apple can always count on its followers to drink the newest flavor of kool aid called the iPhone even if there's been little improvement over the last flavor. Adding more sugar won't make it tastes any better.

    People always talk about Apple adopting things that have been done in Android ages before hand but the thing about it is that Apple takes those things and makes it much better. I love Samsung devices and all, but they usually end up laggy thanks to that Touch Wiz crap and then they are always undecided on what they want to do. They have put out at least 3 versions of the same watch over the course of the year, they have the Galaxy S5, Alpha, Note, S5 Active, S5 Sport, etc. I just wish they had more consistency because u never know whether to get what they are putting out or if u want to wait another 6 months for their "better" version.

    With reports of the iPhone 6 being offered for as cheap as free, what chance does Samsung have of prevailing? Might Samsung follow suit?

    Where can you get the iPhone 6 free, i am assuming on contract, without any trade in?

    299 is for the 5.5 16g with a 2 year contract. $749 for the 5.5 with no contract. No 32g option and a 128g 5.5 will cost you $949. And Apple is saying that will draw 20% of android users with the 6. If i could get a 4.7" iphone 6 off contract for the same amount of a 2nd gen moto x i do it but $649 is way too much money.

    Its funny they call it "free", completely ignoring the fact the phone's cost is built in every bill.

    If they do free phone, AND no contract, now that is what I call "free".

    The iPhone 6 Plus is a phone with a large screen. The Note series is unique, with the S-Pen and all the things it can do. I'm sure Apple wants you to think that the 6 competes with the Note, but it really doesn't. It's closest Android competition is the LG G3, which is available for $100, has a much higher resolutions screen (for what that's worth) and is much smaller.

    Not really free since you have to trade in.I wouldn't mind to trade in my 3g,but they won't accept it. And not worth it for 5 or 5s.

    My god, the 6+ is even taller and wider than my OnePlus, talk about bezel.

    If an Android phone have that much bezel right now it gets laugh at.

    Apple iPhone 6 Plus vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4 - Visual phone size compare

    If an Android phone have that much bezel right now it gets laugh at.
    So the Note, which isn't known for its small bezels, is 1mm wider, but 4.5mm shorter than the 6 Plus, which has a smaller screen. The 6 Plus is almost 1.5 mm thinner, though.

    I'm reminded of the old cigarette commercial: "a silly millimeter longer." For all practical purposes, they're the same size. I just came back from the phone store, checking out a Note 3 for size. It's not awful. It's certainly not a one-handed phone, but for all practical purposes neither are the G3 or S5. It fits in my jeans pocket just fine, but it is less comfortable to hold for my relatively small hands. The 6 Plus is going to be the same. The G3, on the other hand, felt fine in my hand.

    At least the Note offers a lot of additional functionality for its size.

    Thinner is not always better. I prefer phones at 1cm thickness and with good ergonomic design, I don't like phones at 8mm or less, maybe the iPhone 6 will be better to hold with all that curveness. I think that 1.5mm thicker is going to help in the long run with better battery life (even despite Touchwiz), probably water resistant design, and qi charging compatibility. Anyway, if an Android phone had that much bezel it would not be well accepted.

    Is really about the utility, its's 1mm extra thickness provides microsd card and replaceable battery, i say the trade off is well worth it.

    On the other hand, i heard apples huge top bezel is there for "summery"......
