Damnit, every time I call dick smith to ask about the order, I press 1 then 1, then 1 again on their IVR and it just hangs up on me. The SKU on that flyer page is the same as what I have ordered, so I am now expecting that I will get those 2 free pieces. But cant confirm with them because they dont answer website queries and their phone system is still just hanging up.

WTF dicks, do you want customers or not?

So far DSE, NL, WH all say Spark version. Warehouse Stationary says "compatible with all networks". The phone would work on any network though so you can buy the Spark version and use any network. From the limited info to date the Spark version will have Spark apps installed, and will be likely a Spark Samsung firmware (eg when updates coome out as per the nomal painful Samsung process if you are using the phone on Voda you will still be waiting for the Spark update on Kies.). Whether it has a boot animation or not - wouldn't know.

Not guarantees on the above, just speculation from teh work people have doine here so far (read back).

don't you think the preorder price @ 965.15 from a couple of days ago is a better deal?


The dude I just spoke to at Dick Smith reckons I should get the free wireless charger with the preorder also. He didn't sound totally confident to me though.

Does anyone have a link or anything to the promo? Can't find it on their site.

It was on the back of a paper junk mailer that came out yesterday or the day before.

I facebook messaged them and they said they were adding it to the order. I don't see any reason why you wouldn't get it as it's the same sku.

Mines now emailed that it's shipped. Yay for tomorrow.

Hmm I can't quite decide. Stay with my S5 or get a note4? The only thing putting me off is the size.

You probably have little reason to upgrade to the note 4 if the concern you have is the size.

I am assuming you will be selling your S5? Not exactly sure what they go for on Trade Me, $600?

So ask yourself what is $450-$500 (Price difference of S5 + N4 once you sell S5) going to get me and see if its worth it.

I'll sell my HTC One M8 most likely. Unsure to know if it's going to be that much better. How do others here feel?

Um, they're all so good that any meaningful differences come down to personal opinion.
