    Also why was there no plastic on the screen? And why was the battery already in?

    Good question. Does Verizon really request all of these silly customizations?

    No headphones, go figure, granted I don't know if I'd want to pay the extra $50 or so for the quality of headphones that they include with phones.
    I'm sure this was a move by Verizon to support their greed. I wouldn't be surprised if they try to sell it as part of a bundle package. Don't be surprised if they stop including chargers with phones.

    Losing the headphones seems a sensible decision to me. There are more of them sitting in the original boxes than ever get used. I don't see losing the headphones as a step toward losing the chargers and cords. Give me the money and I will decide what headphones I want to buy. Don't need either Samsung or Verizon making that choice. Charger is an entirely different story.

    yeah this guy just posted on XDA. he probably got an early review unit, since he works for that betanews.com.

    but nope, no headphones, and yeah he definietely opened it up before hand and put the battery in. verizon's phones come with the prtoector over the screen and the battery OUT of the phone.

    You're not missing anything. I took them out and never used them since I have my own. I know headphones that come with phones won't compare the ones I bought separately lol.

    lol, well they are the same shady corporation that's trying to get the federal government to get rid of net neutrality so I can see them going that route, as well as charging extra for the S-pen.....

    I read somewhere about a year ago, that almost all chargers and data cables are becoming universal fit now (except iphone, of course) because soon, they would no longer be included with a new phone. You woukd either have to use one from your old phone or purchase as an extra accessory. I see it as a real possibility. Pay more and get less.

    That would put a good deal more responsibility in the hands of accessory manufacturers than I think the phone manufacturers will allow. They will not want their gorgeous pieces of engineering mucked up by a crummy charger. If you decide later to dump their charger...fine but I don't think they will want to be dealing with service calls for brand new phones where the first question has to be, "were you using our charger" when the thing melted in your hands.

    Where there will be a cost benefit to universal or quasi universal chargers is that device manufacturers will be able to include with their devices a charge kit that is ubiquitous that they have purchased at a much lower price point than the norm because the volumes will be huge. But they will still want that charger to be something that their Engineering has determined should be mated to their device and they will want it in the box with the new device.

    The other cost benefit will accrue to us when we go to buy extra chargers or to replace one that has broken. But out of the box....I very seriously doubt you will be able to buy or even should buy or will even find the device manufacturers trying to sell you a phone without a charger. That would leave the buying public with the decision and what do you think they would buy in the main????? The cheapest thing that they can find and they would be buying it without the technical background to know what they were buying.

    The guy works for beta news, I would suspect he got it as a reviewer. I don't think he cheated the system in anyway.

    I have a pair of v-moda crossfade m 100, v-moda xs and surprisingly a pair of beats solo 2 which sound pretty good and you should give em a try at a store before passing judgement. I also didn't pay a dime for them but since using them I like them.

    I wish Verizon would be more greedy if Verizon greed saves me $50-125 per phone. I much prefer this to getting headphones and paying more for the phone .also I don't see headphones being bundled with the note on Verizon's website

    Basically the edge plan is nothing more than a rental plan with no residual value if you choose to upgrade your device under 2 years.

    Posted via the Android Central App
    It is a device payment plan. Rental would indicate that you would never own it

    The new Edge isn't really good for upgrading anymore. So if you into changing phones every 8-12 months or so, this new Edge isn't a good deal. It's now really a 0% interest payment plan, and you also get line/data discounts which aren't bad.
