fabianz03:
So, is it going to be shipped on the 24th as originally intended?
Also seems like all of them are sold out online.


Yep, bundles are goneburgers as of today.


They will all ship out as soon as possible.



What you mean asap, have they not been recieved yet from the distributer ? Asap would mean they could have been sent yesterday, as many other retailers are already shipped and recieved!

A friday ship would mean a monday/tuesday receive for many!

Just a wild guess

I was told 24th for pickup at Pb. Iā€™d be happy to go in a day or two earlier! Very glad I managed to buy the bundle.

Midday is what PB tech Chch told me.  The courier arrives sometime on release day, then the pallet of notes is removed from the truck and they text all the excited new parents.

I figure that i will want the galaxy x when it comes out so no point investing the extra $300 if it's going to be traded in in six months.

Two more sleeps to go...

Clear case included

For me getting the 512gb was I'd rather have alot of storage that may not get used than having to delete/move content. SD slot is icing on a feature packed cake :)

Can one of the people who have received their notes already (lets just call them "the chosen ones") tell me the exact model number of the pb tech power bank so i can google the specs. Given that i am not one of the chosen ones i need something to do for the next two days.

That's the power bank

What is everyone's plans for screen protection?
The only one I can find is at noel Leeming for $40 and its not available til Friday.
I'm used to buying $1 glass screen protectors from ebay so $40 hurts šŸ˜‚

The edge screen always causes problems for glass protectors. Thr only glass protector i would recommend is whitestone dome. Otherwise, stick with a film protector.

You don't need a screen protector.  They don't sit well on notes at all.  I had one of the ones from noels on my s9+ and it lasted a day before i pulled it off.  Been naked for months on my s9+ and it's fine.  Also naked on the note 8 and was fine.

You don't get any microscratches on the screens? It's happened to some of my phones in the past but maybe the glass tech has improved
I like the glass ones for absorbing the impact of drops, any idea how much these screens cost to replace?

The copper is rather nice in person for the record.

 

 

 

 

In that case I am glad the wife chose that colour even though copper wasn't available as a demo unit.

Not that I have notice at all.  The glass would do little to stop impact damage with how the screen is on these devices.

 

I did use this on my old s8 https://www.nanoflowx.com/glassx
