So, I've got the note 3 preordered since the 13 of last month. Its always said that it'll ship on the 1st, and for the past 2 weeks I've heard that it will go on sale on the 4th, which lines up with shipping from wherever the hub will probably be where they ship these things out from. The demo was probably shipped out ahead of the rest as display items, and so store employees would have a chance to use the device and learn the features. A couple of thoughts. You people that want the phone asap, preorder. I will agree Samsung's launches have been butchered again and again, but they are slowly getting better. AT&T should have been 100% clear about preorder ship dates, in store launch dates and the whole thing been clearer, but for reasons beyond our knowledge, they couldn't get it together. I've waited for 5 months reading rumors, watching as leaks came out and I'm as excited as the next man to get my hands on this phone, but its not as if AT&T is dangling it over my head teasing me with it, I'll get is as soon as they can get it to me, another week is not going to hurt me. In box headphones? Really? I can honestly say any headset I've gotten included is box with the phone unless it had a very specific connector, or function went quickly in the trash, because that's what they are 99.9% of the time.... Trash. Get yourself some decent monitors (even most of you cheapskates can afford the Etymotic lower end, and they are excellent), you won't be disappointed (although your wallet will be significantly lighter) but that's why you should buy quality, take care of your belongings, and enjoy it. I imagine most of you people complaining they don't have headphones in the box will complain that they sound like poo with your pirated low bitrate mp3s. I can't wait to hear this phone play some of my flac recorded paid for music with my etymotic hf5s.
Now, for my complaints. Accessories made by their parties have and excuse not to be out on day one of the release, on the other hand, the s view cover should be available when I get my note, now for the first week, I'll have to be super careful with my phone, its not that it'll be hard, but I won't be able to take advantage of the s view cover, the extra battery and charger, and the wireless charger when I'd like, but as stated above, I'll just have to wait and get it when its made available. That's honestly my only complaint. That and India got the phone before the us. Oh well....
