    $299 !!? No way! Only stupid would get this over iphone 5 when its out (will kick this ass of phoine) !! Support own country, iPHONE is AMERICAN! not This is CHINA made samsmug… android for poor people, they should sell expensive phones, who wuold buy it!?

    • lxgeorge

      Samsung is from South Korea….guess you actually know even less than I thought you would as an iFanboy

    • pjamies

      Buddy, you don’t have a clue do you ??
      The Iphone is made/built in China NOT the US !!
      Yes it is deamed up in the US, but then farmed out to
      Asia for construction ..
      You really need to do your homework on this before opening
      you big mouth and spouting crap !!
      and where the hell did you learn english .. a trailer park ?
      Loser !!

    • Jon Garrett

      Support your own country, your grammar and spelling is atrocious and you’re obviously NOT a proud American.

      • Joshua Martin

        I’d rather have my products constructed South Korea (albeit finished in China they are) rather than have my products made in China ;)

    • Alex

      Another sad, sad example of an american redneck (notice the small “a” in american, for this person does not even qualify as one!). There are those who like to just turn an appliance on and have it do its thing, without having to worry about a thing. There are also those who are curious and adventurous by nature and like to explore and push the envelope in everything they do, own, make and interact with. So you stick to your appliance and leave the rest of us alone, moron!

    • James Lyons

      You do realize that Apple has the iphone made in china due to lower cost of labor and material etc. Also apple has not even released the name let alone specs for the next iphone. If you like iphones then keep buying them, and let everyone else buy the phones they like.

      • squeeze

        Yes…but also China has advanced manufacturing capabilities and throughput. China has a market for over 40 million iPhones. That is co-location and supplier logistics. (I believe Jobs said this at one point.) Pride is one thing (worked hard for my citizenship and served) but the ability to deliver the product to the end-user is another. I have an International Note and I am using the sim from my 4s.

    • Aye aye

      Android is for poor people? Promise I have more money than you and I’m rocking android.

    • Brad

      Haha. You’re retarded.

    • toVirgotheVirgin

      wow. you’re so stupid. and way to be racist.

  • lxgeorge

    I’m not on AT&T, but when this hits stores I’ll probably pay some stores a visit just to check it out in all it’s awesome-but-slight-absurdity XD

    • delinear

      I checked it out in the store over here (UK) a few weeks back and honestly, it doesn’t feel much bigger than my Nexus in the hand (I can hold both comfortably and I don’t have freakishly big hands). Definitely worth holding the physical device if you’re on the fence and can’t decide.

  • The Rationalist

    Um, sorry to burst your bubble Dave Virgo, but iPHONE is also made in China… and the Galaxy Note is probably made in South Korea. Do you invent every idea you have or do you actually read every once and awhile?

    • Dave Virgo

      NO! Apple is AMERICAN, they say it made in china to make it cheaper for tax ay, but they DO MAKE IT IN AMERICA! I know. Android lies to make it better but its not.

      • pjamies

        Are you sure your name is Dave ?
        your english sounds like you are asian or something !!

        God your stupid …

        • Tsuri Arashi

          How can you call Dave Virgo Asian? Is that not racist and prejudice? I have never in my life spoken like that gentleman has. It is a topic of great pain for me as I daily have to deal with terms such as ‘Engrish’ and insults about my homeland because of teh useless individuals out there misusing this complicated language of England. I feel strangled by the distress all this causes me.

        Apple iPods, iPhones, and other products are manufactured for Apple by Foxconn, a Taiwan-based company (technically, Foxconn is the company’s trade name; the firm’s official name is Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. Ltd).

        The iPod and iPhone are manufactured in Shenzen, China, though Foxconn maintains factories in countries across the world, including Thailand, Malaysia, the Czech Republic, South Korea, Singapore, and the Philippines.

    I’ll have to stop by an AT&T and check it out. I’ll be hoping that the Note or something similar makes it’s way to Sprint for my next upgrade.

  • myandroid99

    and so the pointless android vs. iphone argument begins

  • the guy that made the first comment is an asshole you sound like a red neck the best technology comes from outside the US you imbecile

    • Jon Garrett

      why are you insulting rednecks. they are far more intelligent than that guy. lol

  • pjamies

    I have been doing my research on this phone for several months now, and I am stoked that
    it is finally come to Canada .. (tho I wish it was running ICS out of the box ..:()
    This is the evolution of the smartphone and I am happy to be able to kick it’s tires to see what it can do …
    Over the next yr or so, you will see other devices (phones, tablets and touchscreen laptops) enter the pen based market.
    Yes, Dell had the streak, which has not done so well .. but then Dell has never had a phone product that has been able to concure the mobile market, so this leaves other .. better suited mobile companies to take the lead here …
    Samsung is on a roll .. and if any company can make a phone-tablet hybrid device work, it is them ..
    I am truely looking forward to experiencing what this device can do for my day-to-day business, as I like to use a pen to write with over a virtual keyboard.
    And to the users who think that an iPhone is a better device … well fine, go buy 1 and live in your locked down communist state … I like to live free .. with an open OS !!
    I would figure all American’s would … no ??

    I reserved my white galaxy note last nite (Saturday) at 1130 pm. I do not know why some gripe about the price since you would pay the same for an inferior iphone 4s 32 gig. The iphone is smaller, not able to use a micro sd card, slower, etc…

    I have the iphone and will quit it cold turkey when my new galaxy note arrives. As far as where they were made, They were made in different countries. How else can they have so many available. A simple search will tell you that some were made in china, some in korea, some in india and possibly other countries.

  • gadgetstop321

    When I first saw the Galaxy Note, it was love at first sight…then came the heartbreak when it wasn’t released in the US. The other day I was elated when I read that AT&T was offering the Galaxy Note…and once again heartbreak when I discovered that I can’t upgrade until June. Grrrr!

  • boro09

    I’d have seriously considered it if it was on T-Mo and had an Exynos cpu, but with this S3 it’s practically the same as my SGS2 with a better screen – not really worth the premium.

    • domi

      * better GPS locking
      * higher resolution
      * higher cpu clockspeed
      * S-PEN
      * Design / Style
      * great battery

      But then again I skipped the Galaxy S2 when I used the S1 cause I hated the design.
      So for me it was an obvious choice.

    I really want this phone but will wait till it drops to $199 OR the NoteTwo is announced a couple months later.

  • Dan13

    Although I still think that $300 for a subsidized phone is too much, I will be very happy for those of you who get this amazing device.

  • Shazam

    This will be the next phone I pay for… maybe.

  • http://www.ndroidgamers.com B2L

    The Galaxy Note is worth every penny, i don’t get why some are complaining about the price tag. Getting a $750 device for $299 is a pretty good discount for a two year contract. When high end devices sold for $199, the unsubsidized price was only in the $500 range. So think about the difference before saying the price is too high.


    wish it was on tmo.. smh

  • Dirge

    Wait…Snapdragon? Doesn’t the Euro version have an Exynos?

    • http://androidandme.com Taylor Wimberly

      Yep International version is Exynos 4210. AT&T Version is Snapdragon S3.

  • spazby

    Galaxy s3 on sprint baby…

  • Alex

    Check this out: I applied for and got a new chase freedom credit card, which comes with a promotional $50 statement credit on your first purchase. Then I pre-ordered the Galaxy Note from Best Buy, which netted me a $50 BB gift card, plus a free flip case and a 20% discount coupon good towards any mobile accessory. Not bad for a few minutes of research and shopping–and without even setting foot outside the house! This made my weekend.

  • jay p

    Any word on a verizon version with Exynos chip .

    • http://www.ndroidgamers.com B2L

      If the Verizon version uses LTE (Which it most likely will.) it won’t have the Exynos, since it’s not LTE compatible.
