Can anyone else confirm the white accessories for a black phone? (and thanks for the one person that did already).

Also, after acquring mine, (which involved a tour of Wellington), the next best price right now is Warehouse Stationary (WHS) at $995.

They are online only. After they called Head Office, the Wellington shop said they only had 5 for all of WHS (if I heard that right) so stock was being redirected form shops to online only. However the price looks to be valid for a while. They haven't recieved their stock yet, but expect it Monday, and thus internet orders (for however much stock they DO get) should be shipped Monday.

Again, no guarantees, just repeating what I was told while on my hunt.

Next best price after that is DSE at $1049. They said they were getting stock shipped this afternoon hopefully, and were not sold out.

Funny thing is WHS advertised the Note at $1149 in their flyer, but said they dropped their price to match another retailer. I'm only aware of DSE being the next best price at $1049, but perhaps there is another retailer out there selling at $999 or soemthing?!

For anyone in WGN that liked the PB Tech price and bundle, they told me they had 150 units in transit, arriving today supposedly, available in store Saturday all going well.

HN Tory had 1 of each colour at $1149. 2 Degrees was expecting stock in the afternoon, also at $1149. Spark had stock at $1149 also.

Got my Note 4 (Vodafone version) earlier today from Noel Leeming (Westgate) for a discounted price of $1029. I think it was the last one left at the store.

Yeah, they only provide white coloured accessories with all their phones, same as with my grey Note II.

The model number is SM-N910U. I think it's the same model for all telcos.

Come on people, you've had them all day. Early impressions?

Still overloaded with bloatware? Still a laggy mess because of this? Great camera as reviews have said? Better feel than the faux leather of the 3?

Finger unlock works ok, but the positioning on the home button is a bit of a pain for one handed use. Think the back like others would have been better

Rappelle: Figured I'd ask again.. What's everyone doing for cases? I can't find much/anything NZ based that looks good quality that I can easily buy.


If retailers dont have any, & if you want something GOOD, just buy direct from samsung NZ, not sure what range they have in their estore yet.
Samsung do have decent cases for the Note 4, but when they come available is another story.

short of that, eBay & AliExpress have plenty cases to choose from, trademe does too

Gesture typing on the Samsung stock keyboard is new, right? It's pretty good. Missing a couple features I use in my preferred keyboard though. So will probably go back.

After a day, performance is great. First battery cycle was pretty poor though, but will give a couple more cycles to judge. And design and feel is so much nicer than the 3. Really don't want to put a case on this thing!

Oh, and the settings button change to 'recent apps' button takes some getting used to.

I hate that since most apps put the menu button at the top I use it a lot.

Also the alphabetical app list seems to be gone. Also used that a lot instead of home screen shortcuts since those were full with widgets.
