Mr Anonymous, 29 Sep 2014this is one of those iphone fanatics trying to give the samsung a bad name before it hits othe... moreAnalysis from Forbes:
To react so quickly to a competitor, to bring forward a planned release data, and to apply a price cut on day zero sales, says much about Samsung’s lack of complete confidence in the Note 4. It will likely sell well, and be one of the more successful Android phablets, but the outlook is becoming clear. If Samsung doesn’t believe in the product, and is already cutting desperately needed profit margins to shift stock, then its profits and dominance of Android are threatened.
this is one of those iphone fanatics trying to give the samsung a bad name before it hits other countries. no worries the phones will be fine when they get to our hands.
The issue is that Samsung pushed Apple too far. Apple pushed back and came out swinging with the 6 and 6+ and they sold like hotcakes, 10 million in 24 hours.
Samsung was afraid its note 4 will be too late to the party and shipped it early and thats where quality suffered. Now samsung will suffer both in quality, sales and reputation.
Shouldnt have woken Apple up. Now its time to pay.
As much as it's fun to laugh at Samsung, remember that these are faulty products, while the bending issue with the iPhone 6 Plus is a design issue not a faulty product. So Samsung can replace the faulty Note 4's while Apple can't.
Scotts, 29 Sep 2014I question whether this is a case of rushed production or just bad quality control. We'll have... moreFor sure samsung will replaced those note4 with gapgate issue. But its funny how fast karma backfired to samsung for their bashing about apple a week ago.
Many of you are making fun of this. This is not usual for Samsung and it happens, just like it happens with every other company. Samsung makes excellent phones that are really long lasting and have a good body construction even though they're not like the M8 (Except for the S5 Active). It is very rare that Samsung gets issues like this unlike Sony and other manufacturers that repeatedly have issues at launch.
Btw, I use an LG G2 and Oppo Find 7a, but I had an S1 for 4 years, it still works now, I had an S4 and Note 3. My brother has an S3, my cousin an S5 and his father an S3. I know that Samsung phones are great and reliable.
lacp69, 29 Sep 2014Copy gate? I think Apple this time has copied the Note design with Iphone 6+.Oh c'mon! Everyone knows that samsung phones is just a copy of sony, htc, iphone and LG.
Everyone here is wrong, Samsung is making a card holder, Cupertino giant said.
I question whether this is a case of rushed production or just bad quality control. We'll have to see if these issues pop up anywhere else. When I pick up my Note 4 (who knows when that will be, Samsung has the worst product releases) if I see any issues I'll turn around and exchange it immediately. It's not like this will be a problem that develops over time, it'll either be there or it won't.

Sorry samsung your karma is here.
Anonymous, 29 Sep 2014LOL Gapgate, copygate....they are a "me 2".Copy gate? I think Apple this time has copied the Note design with Iphone 6+.
Really no phone comes out now without some important issue. In the case of expensive phones like iphone or note4 this is really unacceptable. Buying a phone on release is just the stupidest thing anyone can do, you pay a lot more to beta test a product that is most probably going to have important issue. But I mostly blame this on customers willing to pay this much and to buy product on day one withtout even caring to check if there is any issue.
cjs, 29 Sep 2014err......you're wrong i'm afraid, gap is a verb:
Definition of GAP
1: ... moreONE word
TWO R's TWO A's and TWO U's aka a double U
WARRANTY or what we have here is is WARranty
This is for manufacturing defects
Quality Control as already mentioned allowed some to be shipped in this state before I go onto to bendgate
(And who said this site is only visited by trolls)
@ hesi wrong
@ cjs wrong
Herzallah is in fact right so you win the NOTE 4 and the runner ups win the iPhone6 +
It is in fact real simple "GAP” is a noun!
there are words which are both NOUN and VERBS, but you must NOT change the spelling as you have a completely different word, common sense really...
Verbs express actions
So e.g. a word which is both Verb & noun is milk
Noun fluid "milk" and,
Verb milk the cow
It cannot therefore be a transitive verb as it was never a verb to begin with
Reaper8, 29 Sep 2014And samsung wants 700 euros for this garbage.iphone bends if a 120 Kg fatso sits on it and they make it headline material or weeks even if it happens to 80% of other phones; samsung can't even match the screen size with the phone and you only find out if you dig deep into the news.
