    Because of the October release I considered buying an iPhone 6 plus but decided not to.

    Apple will be announcing 3 new products before Samsung releases 1 of the 2 they announced back in Berlin and Apple will be releasing it a week or 2 later. If Samsung wants to copy apple it should be their release planning lol

    I will admit the delay is annoying .. I am more concerned on how T-Mobile is handling pre-orders since they're not being very clear on when you will get it. I am tempted to just go to a store if I don't see anything promising next week on my order.

    Yeah I've been waiting to upgrade for months now. If they delay the US release much past the 17th, I'll just finally move on to something else.

    I am wondering what is the reason behind the gap between announcement and release. production capability? Samsung does product a lot more different type of products, maybe its time for them to re-assess the sales and cut the resources for not so profit products.

    I rather wait for a premium device than give in to impatience for a ****ty device that releases earlier.


    You people have no damned sense of patience. The old days were better. And I'm only 23.

    It was a bad move on their part. Most companies announce and release in a short time .. not announce a new device and wait a month and a half to come to the market.

    Really? I never get this argument. If this is the device you want and you are willing to wait until Date X what difference does a few days make either way?

    I'm anxious to get mine too, but will you really move on to something else if you're pushed out a week? What, exactly, would you get that compares? Other than an IP6+ has anything come out recently that does?

    Not criticizing you. I just legitimately don't understand when people say this over a few days.

    The delay caused me to start looking at the Nexus 6. If the N6 is announced within the next 2 weeks, I'll have a hard decision to make.

    It doesnt matter. If you really want something, you wait for it, whether its weeks or months. Who cares if Samsung announced a month earlier? Do we not have other things in life to keep us busy while we wait for the device to arrive? There's people who literally bought something they never originally wanted over something they waited so long for, just because it came out earlier. Makes no sense lol.

    The concurrent launch/delivery of the iPhone had an impact on the Samsung Note getting out of China.

    I understand your point, and I wouldn't move on if they delay it a week or so, but much more that that and I would consider it.
    My device is old and on its last legs an Ive been looking since June. First at the LG G3 and note 3. But then I figured, in a month they announce the new note, I can wait that out no problem. Then they wait over a month for release, ok I can wait that out no prob...well just a little annoyed but mostly no problem. Now I can wait another week if need be. But there is a difference between patience and just continually waiting for the next best thing.
    Side note, this is the first time I've ever held out in anticipation for a new phone release. I usually just go in and buy one. So maybe this is just the norm for releases and I'm just now becoming aware.
    Perhaps the Nvidia news and UK delay have made me a bit pessimistic today. At any rate, still expecting them in the stores on the 17th, so hopefully this is all a moot issue.

    There is an announcement today that the launch in the UK will be delayed until the 17th. Will that push back the US launch?

    I just don't get this - So you were willing to buy a phone you didn't want because it came out a month earlier than the one you really want?

    Pretty much everything is announced way before they are released -
    Video game consoles
    video games
    movies
    music
    etc...

    And those things are announced months/years before they are released. That's like my really wanting a XB1, but because the PS4 is announced a month earlier, I'll just go ahead and get that instead of what I really want.

    Are phones different usually - release not too long after announcement? I have only owned an iPhone, so i can only go by their announcements and release days.

    No, it just puts the UK on line with the US. When I read the announcement like a week ago, I was like "Yeaaahhhhh *****es, you aint getting it earlier" lol

    You're welcome to your opinion on the matter but I still think personally that it was a bad move. Most phone manufactures do not wait over a month to release a product after announcing it so early. .

    I agree the wait Sucks but worth it. I was tempted for like 10 minutes to the iPhone 6 plus. Saw it in the store and was so underwhelmed. Played with the note 4 and it blew me away. . I've already pre-ordered the black note 4 with Best Buy

    I agree Samsung may have lost sales to Apple from not releasing the note 4 earlier. But the note 4 is such a better device than the iPhone 6 it's not even funny

    Well the problem isn't so much of Samsung having a month time frame between announcement and release than it is that people will actually not buy a device they anticipated so much, all because they cannot wait just a measly month more. Think about, if Samsung revealed the Note 4 on October 3rd, would it have made it a difference? We cannot blame Samsung for not being able to release it a week after Sept 3rd, because we are just consumers, mass-producing millions of high tech devices isn't exactly an easy or fast accomplishment.

    Look at Apple. Yeah, they released their device early. But at what cost? The cost of it being a poor device compared to the Note 4 in terms of design and specs (design can be subjective to preference, but no one can deny specs and features).

    Trust me, I would wait even a full year knowing I can get a better device than suck it up with an inferior one due to lack of patience. People are literally buying iPhone 6 just because it released earlier, even though they were all for the Note 4 before.

    A month is nothing, especially for something as materialistic and unimportant as a cellphone. If people can't show patience over a device they will use as a camera and for the internet, I don't know how they will cope will real life situations that will ask them to show patience. And we all know life can be pretty ruthless when it wants to be.

    Again it is your opinion and you're welcome to it but I disagree. Apple's issue isn't due to them releasing 2 weeks or so after announcing .. that is a design issue from the get go (I assume you're referring to the "Bend Gate") ... but they produce millions all the same and were able to release shortly after an announcement .. in my opinion that is what Samsung should of done.

    I've been eligible to upgrade since June, but I knew I would want the N4 even b4 the specs came out. IMO a phone like this is worth the wait

    Oh I agree .. I will wait .. Because I love my Note 3 and know I will love the Note 4. I am just saying it was a bad move waiting that long .. by that is just my 0.02c on the matter .. it won't make me go elsewhere.

    Haha, my sentiments exactly! It does get a little annoying seeing such impatience. But I guess for the OP (and others) a thread like this is therapeutic. It lets them release their frustrations. So best to leave them to their devices (figuratively and literally).
    I can understand excitement and anticipation, but when you sacrifice desire and want for gain, that's just weak and pretty much sad. It just makes no sense to see people defend and look forward to the Note 4 so much (or anything in life in general), and then just buy the iphone 6 because it came out a month earlier even though they don't like it as much but they just HAVE to get a new phone (or anything in life in general).

    Not trying to be rude, apologies if anyone gets offended. Just trying to point out that if we can't be patient for something as materialistic as a cell phone, then we will have serious trouble when life decides to throw tests down the road (which it always does, to everyone).

    Actually I wasn't even thinking of the bendgate, don't even care about that problem. I was saying it in general. Would you acquire an 'average' device at best quickly, or rather wait longer for a more premium device that will actually be worth every dollar you pay for it? Yeah Apple has a device that released earlier, but Samsung has a device that will be better. And anything that is better, is worth waiting for (for anything in life, including, lol, cell phones). That was my point.

    Waiting longer doesn't always mean a better product ... That is just a cleachea . If Samsung waited to announce 2 weeks before announcing .. we would have waited the same amount of time like Apple users did but get the same product correct? So time doesn't mean they're doing something extra .. It simply means they jumped the gun in trying to be the first to announcement and then waiting over a month to get it into customers hands.

    As I said previously I am still getting it ... I just personally think they tried to show it all off before Apple then didn't have the supply to get it to us fast enough.

    This.

    I am still using my Note 2. I skipped the Note 3 despite knowing it was a more powerful phone all this time. Why? Because I also knew the Note 4 is around the corner and it would blow every Note to date out of the water, so I started to wait for the Note 4 before it even became rumored.
