Rappelle: What are fellow Geekzoners intending to do about cases? I've been a fan of Spigen recently, but I am having some trouble finding one for the Note 4 in NZ. What kind are you looking to get, and where from? 


I bought a Spigen Tough Armor (http://www.amazon.com/Spigen%C2%AE-Kick-Stand-Protective-EXTREME-Protection/dp/B00MAWQVZY/ref=sr_1_21?s=wireless&ie=UTF8&qid=1413489311&sr=1-21&keywords=spigen+armor). I learnt my lesson after demolishing the screen on my note 2 twice with a cheap case. Have a tempered glass screen protector on its way as well.

Mine arrived thismorning, but instead of the wireless charge stuff I got a pair of headphones.

Had a chance to play with it? Any initial impressions? Is it your first ? Is the size bothering you?

So I've been over to Noel leeming this morning, they didn't have the Note 4. I was hoping at get my mits on Saturday demo model, but no luck.

Spoke with the manger there, he said they have NO stock and don't when they will, probably not for a while. That the telcos will have it first.

Guessing they've extinguished the preorders and that's it for them for now.

Looks like I will heading to Vodafone tomorrow morning with the masses!

Well, after accepting pre-orders (and payment!) and telling me that they would be available for pickup on the release day or day after, Noel Leemings now tell me that they have at least a two week wait. Thanks for wasting my time guys.

Cheers - N

Finch: Hate to say it but...

Fair call... The reason I'm annoyed is that I knew their history on this sort of thing and got an extremely clear statement from a NZ based support line before placing the order.

Seems they care more about getting orders than fulfilling them.

Oh well. Guess I have to decide if the price ($959) is worth waiting for or making them refund.

Cheers - N
