    I will check out the pre-order page and then decide if I want to pull the trigger. Do like that the Note III will come with 4.3 and retain removable battery and microSD card slot.

    Is this only for online, or in-store also? I really hope its not a bundle type deal.

    If it had a nonremovable battery and no SD card I would buy it. But I'll pass and wait for one max or g2. But glad to see vzw didn't brand the home button like they did on note 2

    What are the reasons you won't buy it because you can remove the battey and add a SD card?

    Rather dumb founded on that one. But everyone has their own set of specs they want. I was looking at the One Max but this truly fits the bill AND Samsung has proven they are going to support hardware for some time to come. GN2, GS3 and GS4 all getting 4.3 starting in October (December on Verizon is my guess) but seriously what other OEM is stepping up like that . . . None.

    Has there been any clarification on what this post entails? Is this for bundles only? Or for either? Surely they can't have people pre order without a price or an approximate delivery date?

    Yep very serious, Google doesn't support SD cards any more and Samsung's history of breaking SD cards. Removable battery is a joke. Breaking plastic tabs on the cover loose covers doing battery pulls ha no thanks.

    I've never had an issue with breaking anything due to a plastic cover lol. Sounds more like user error.

    I am not sure what you do to your phones, but I have owned very realistically far more than anyone on the forums has (except the writers here) and I have never broken a battery door on a Samsung device, never, ever. I put my phones in a case, I just rip my battery door off my phone and I am aware the tabs are easily broken. But still I have yet to break one.

    I've done this. But it takes a TON of use, and a little abuse to do it. Being a power user and having little time to actually plug in, I keep a spare battery/spare battery charger on my desk for the Gnex. Taking the back cover off once/twice a day to change batteries and here and there for battery pulls it took me a year and a half for my cover to break. Its actually just noticeably loose, not technically broken The tabs just end up wearing out.
    That being said, someone who is an average user and just pulls there cover off for the occasional battery pull or removing the SD card, I agree, I can't see it happening without forcing the cover on the wrong way. Definitely don't see it as a problem.

    Based on your reply, I can see how constant removal would cause stress on those tabs and they can break. Not sure what the answer is, but if Samsung went away from swappable batteries and microSD I would be hard pressed to stay with them. I love their products but they seem to be the only OEM doing it now and that is big for me.

    Until batteries last much longer with much better longevity from a single battery (amount of charge cycles) and internal storage is boosted up to 64/128GB standard, I agree with your sentiment.

    I agree. I need to be able to change batteries if needed. That being said i am looking forward to putting the monster battery in the GN3 to the test. I've heard nothing but good things about the Note 2's stamina. If the N3 does the same I might be able to get through a whole day with a few car ride charges worked in.

    Storage, i've been getting by with 32 gigs, but i rely on cloud storage/streaming for 90% of my music and movies. Having 32/64 onboard with a MicroSD for backup will be plenty, Looks like ill have to start researching those now. Any recommendations on which sandisk to get?? Seems they have Ultra and extreme now.

    I've used the Ultras for awhile now and the Extreme will just be overkill unless there will be 4k video recording done with the phone.

    I'm just hoping we can pre order just the phone and won't be required to order a bundle. Having a requirement to order both will grind a lot of pre order plans to a halt.

    How long do the pre-orders typically stay open for?

    Is it usually an option on pre-orders to purchase at full retail in order to retain unlimited data?

    seems to me the preorder for the note 2 was sometime in october, but it didn't ship until end of november. at least that is my recollection, took freaking forever, but then i was chomping at the bit and not so good at waiting for what i want. i preodered the note 2 on my dumb phone line, then when it came i had to activate on that line, then i switched out the sim card for my line, then reactivated the old dumbphone to its original line. i plan on the same this time. there are many posts with that sort of info. i would think you could preorder for full price, but not sure i've ever really looked at that specifically.

    Thanks.
    I was actually curious how long they usually keep a pre-order period open for. Like before they close it down and you have to wait until full release.
