    Sounds more like a carrier issue than a phone issue.
    I agree with Almeuit.....I currently have a Note 2 and in Tucson, 4G is constant/consistent!

    Verizon has radio issues with Samsung devices, just like other carriers. That seems a rash assertion. Samsung employee?

    Went from Note 3 to LG G3. It's time to come back to the Note.

    Yup count me in. Can't wait for October.
    Plus I can get a new phone every year, which is paid fully by my employer. So it's a win-win! And my renewal is in October, what a great coincidence!

    Now what am I gonna do with the 10+ cases I have for my Note 3? ☺

    Haha, not even close, trust me! Unfortunately Expensive, but Verizon has been the absolute best service/coverage for us (over 14 yrs.) and my Note 2 has Never had one issue since I got it brand new Feb. 2013!

    Don't get me wrong the note 4 looks good but I was expecting way more and the edge isn't my cup of tea, I think Samsung dropped the ball this year . The ball is in Apple's court now and if they release a 5.5 iPhone I might have to covert back to them. Of course spec wise Samsung is better but I wanted something new from them!

    I don't know I am still debating between the Note 4 and the LG G3. I'm coming from a Note 3. So far I have mixed feelings about the LG G3. I've had the N2 and the N3 and they have never failed.

    I will. I was impressed with the 2K display of the LG G3 and couldn't wait to see what Samsung had in store for the Note 4. After todays announcement everything seemed to be what I hopped would be included. I am disappointed with the bare minimum 20mAh increase. I was hopping that with the QHD screen and Snapdragon 805, the Note 4 would have 3,500mAh to 4,000 mAh. While its not major disappointment that defines whether or not to buy or not is that lack of 4GB of RAM. 3GB does not seem to be enough, but i will have to hold in my hand to determine.

    The G3 is nice don't get me wrong, but its all about preference. Both Samsung and LG have multi window, 2K display, removable back. The only advantage of Note 4 Vs LG would be Snapdragon 805, S-pen, and SuperAmoled display

    I'm gonna use my "jump" upgrade with TMobile and upgrade from my Note 3 to Note 4. Why not, I've only had my Note 3 for 6 months.

    I don't think so. When the signal strength is 4 bars, a rarity for me, I get and retain 4G. But the sensitivity of the Note 3 seems to be lacking often enough that in a weaker signal location, it can't receive well enough in order to maintain or get 4G. For me the proof that is a phone issue is when my wife's old HTC Rezound reports a stronger signal and can maintain 4G better than my Note 3 in the same location with the same carrier.

    Sometimes you have to take your signal level with a grain of salt. How is the performance of your internet connection relative to your signal level? I have a GS3 with CM 11.0 on T-Mobile, and often times it displays 3G, but as soon as I launch my web browser, it instantly goes to 4g.

    On another Note, I probably will get the 4. Want to wait for the reviews to come out before I make up my mind.

    I plan to upgrade. I passed my Galaxy s3 to my wife 3 phones ago. She isn't a tech junkie but likes my Note 3 a lot. I offered to get her one and she said to just get the 4 when it's out and she'll take mine.

    I have a Note 3 and the reception is terrible, getting a new phone...just worried the Note 4 will be just as bad, love the 3 but can't deal with the reception issues.

    Update from Note 3 as soon as possible, i own all the Notes, minus the original Note who was killed by my black cat, when she jumped on the storage shelf. From this day the Notes are in a closed drawer.

    Exactly my concern. I will try one. If it still gets bad signal, I am taking it back. If the second one is still bad, I will need to make a decision with Verizon. If they built in a switch to turn off the XLTE band, it would make a huge difference I would think. Can't even make calls or send texts on ground level at my house. Upstairs is spotty as well, but not as bad.

    I'm not Samsung employee.. So please don't assume . I'm just saying I have a T-Mobile Note 3 and I seriously don't have issues... all around where I live and where I've visited.

    I skipped the Note 2 and went from the Note 1 to the Note 3, huge difference (but preferred the form factor of the original, new ones are too tall, IMHO). Similarly, the Note 4 has a lot of nice incremental changes, but not enough to make me want to change. standard Qi charging, USB 3.1 connector, these are the little things Samsung has to do to push standards forwards (something perhaps only they can do, since Apple does their own things). the decision to step backwards to USB2.0 boggles my mind, it isn't like USB3.0 isn't backwards compatible, and the connector is much more solid than all the USB 2.0 devices/cables I have had get bent/damaged over the years

    Maybe similar to Star Trek movies, only every other Note will be worth getting...

    I think it would have been good if they started shifting all their devices to USB 3.0. Especially if the devices are now taking 4k video, transferring extremely large video files back and forth over USB 2.0 is irritating.

    It's a minor annoyance. I just found it strange that they went back to USB 2.0 there. Assumed it would be USB 3.0 again.



    I agree with that.

    While the parts have gotten better from the Note 3 to Note 4 (screen, camera, processor etc), the UI seems largely untouched. I think the user experience for the Note 4 will most definitely be similar to the Note 3. I don't think Note 3 users would be missing out on some sort of amazing piece of tech if they held on to their phones.

    Note 4 is an evolutionary upgrade, and that's great. Great for people who haven't had a new phone in a while - the Note 4 will be a big update. Great for Note 3 users who don't want to shell out the $outright or re-contract as it won't be catastrophically different from what they already have.
    And the Note 3 was a beast when it was released just like the Note 4 will be. The specs are still very good and more then enough. That said if your upgrading from any phone to the Note 4, I'm sure you'll be very happy. I was and still am extremely happy with my Note 3.

    Isn't the Note 4 a Spark phone on Sprint? Even though the maps say I'm in the middle of a strong Spark signal, the phones at the Sprint store only show 3G. No sense in giving up 4G LTE for nonexistent Spark.

    Yes, indeed, I will. I'm seriously fascinated with the Edge. A fun, fresh idea. I have been waiting for this for months.

    Good for you, Sammy. 👍
