    Noticed they showed a USB 2.0 cable in the liveblog on Cnet ... Hopefully it is just a video showing it being used and has a 3.0 option

    I am not sure if it really matters for most people. The only win for USB3 would be faster copying of photos/videos off/on the phone but I guess I don't see the extra few seconds mattering that much.

    But no reason to downgrade ... Backward compatible

    Actually, it does make a huge difference when transferring files back and forth. What a big disappointment if it's not USB 3.0 at least.

    One of the things i was looking forward to was moving to USB 3.0. I sometimes use my phone like a thumb drive. the increased data speed would be great. I really dont understand this choice to move backwards

    The Note 3 port was a bit large and vulnerable looking. I personally prefer the smaller port as I don't need usb 3.0 for data, but I can acknowledge it will affect a few.
    Brave marketing strategy.

    to quote one of my favorite series "The world is moving on". Ive been seeing a lot of USB 3 micro. Especially in external hard drives. Its a good connection and I think space or not it was a bad choice to backtrack. It gives the appearance of no faith in the next iteration of technology

    I would say this is the main reason.

    Samsung said that not many people were buying the 3.0 cables and they decided since not a lot of people are using it they would save space in the phone and go back to 2.0. I for one hate the 3.0 charger for my galaxy s5. Pain in the *** to plug in

    With 2.0 being utilized way more I can't say I'm surprised. They probably did it due to the room.

    The Galaxy Note 3 is the only product that used the USB 3.0. Every device i have is USB 2.0, so I could care less. It was a pain when i had to charge my Note 10.1 2014 edition and my Note 3 with different cable. Plus samsung put USB 3.0 on Note 3 because they said faster charging. Note 4 comes with "50% battery in 30 Min" fast charge

    What you have to remember is Samsung is a company that just recently lost some substantial market share and stock price. It's number one priority is its investors. I see the Note 4 as a compromise for a company that needs to get back some profitability. I, too, was disappointed at USB 2.0 (slightly) and lack of waterproofing (more than slightly), however I understand the reasons behind it. The more Samsung can cut costs per unit, the higher the margins. So they release a refined upgrade to the GN3 where the most expensive piece of hardware is probably the screen (especially on the Edge). They spend money to refine the software which for all intents and purposes is a one-time cost and deliver a phone which is an upgrade to the GN3, even if it isn't as much of an upgrade as we'd all like it to be. Along with it, they introduce an accessory that ONLY works with the Note 4 (Gear VR) which helps peak the interest of a crowd that might not typically go for the Note 4. Now they are increasing sales of a phone that is making them higher margin than their predecessors and the investors are happy. It also potentially introduces the Note to people who would otherwise not try it.

    I like the USB 3.0 cord better. No one else at my work or home has a Note3 and my 2.0 chargers always disappear.

    To bad they didn't have a nice reversible charging connector. I hate trying to line up the USB 3.0

    after too many broken USB2.0 micro cables, I prefer the 3.0, and have never had an issue plugging it in (find it even easier than 2.0 in the dark because I can feel for the indent). space requirements or not, it is kind of disappointing, especially since that excuse doesn't apply to the new USB 3.1 reversible 'standard' we are waiting to see out there, would have been the ideal first device to use it as the Note is a great flagship device for that kind of thing (not to mention Qi charging)
