    1) It's much faster than my Note 3 ever was out of the box. I would say in terms of moving around from app to app, faster than anything out there today...easily as quick as my 2014 MacBook Pro Retina which cost me about $3200.

    2) Sound is fantastic, with what sounds like a separate tweeter built in...no distortion at all and the high end is very crisp! You can hear the symbals very distinctly!

    3) The polished aluminum bezel is slick...with a very nice overall feel on the phone. Doesn't feel at all cheap like a Note 3; in fact, quite the opposite now. Would be really cool if the bezel is one piece and whatever was in between the polished portion on top and bottom could be removed and polished.

    4) The phone stands about 4-5 mm taller than my Note 3, and thickness looks about the same.

    5) The UI looks more like the S5 than the current Note 3.

    6) Messaging app has some cool new features and a cool new look!

    7) The camera app was very cool, with the new photo to text features!

    8) The screen resolution and brightness was beyond the S5 and an iPhone 6 I had in my hand at the time. Unbeatable and super bright!

    9) It has the new anti-bend option built in.

    10) It's not an iPhone!

    I don't know if it's 4.4.4 that makes the speed difference, or if it's the phone itself, but holy crap, that thing was lightning f_cking fast! Did I mention how fast it was? Instant - no lag.

    I'm buying this phone - I want the fingerprint scanner and all the other cool features! I just sold one of my Note 3's and will get one as soon as they are available in October.

    Check out this video regarding the fingerprint. It looks like better than S5 scanner.

    Just back from Best Buy here too. I just have to say OMG, the screen is UFB....all right, well, let's just say unbelievable. I searched for some 14K videos on YouTube and played them on the screen and people walking by were coming over and going "Holy ....that screen is awesome!"
    A guy that had just lost his Note 3 was in the store...no insurance...the BB sales guy showed him the Note 4 and he asked a few questions which I ended up answering for the BB guy...within 100 seconds of seeing it he had his credit card out and ordered a white one.

    There were no black ones on display and no Edge or VR at the big Best Buy next to King of Prussia Mall in PA.

    It's thinner than I expected, feels good in hand. Seemed very crisp and responsive compared to my S4 running Nova Launcher.

    Can't wait. Now I'm psyched for my pre-order to ship.

    VR and phone are disabled on the demos for obvious reasons.

    Yeah, I was @ BB yesterday, and really really liked the Note 4!
    Now I have to send my S5 back (in processing/shipping at AT&T) when it gets here this week. The Note 4 looks to be an awesome device!

    same here... I really hate the fact that someone has already managed to bend
    the iPhone 6 Plus and yet we still can't get our hands on the Note 4.

    I don't know if I can stand waiting for another 4 week or more.

    Did the videos show any lag or stutter? I've seen it mentioned, but I'm assuming it's because people are watching those vids on older phones.

    I want mine early too but let's all be thankful we won't have to go through the preorder drama going on over at Apple! That's why I canceled my 6 Plus preorder. Some that preordered on the 12th still haven't got their Plus yet others that ordered later have there's, even foreign countries are getting there's first.

    which Note 4 was on display in the Best Buy store?

    was it the Verizon version? if so, what kind of processor did it have?

    My nephew had been dreaming about the iphone 6 plus. I took him to best buy and played with the note 4 for about 15 minutes and he fell in love. Then we walked to an att store so he could play with the iphone 6 plus again for another 15 minutes.

    He ended up cancelled his iPhone order right after he got home.

    Samsung should have release the phone sooner than apple.

    Great to hear about the sound quality. Seperate question: why do they announce the phone only to start selling it a month later?
