Aluminum looks and feel metal, because it is and does not look like plastic. If you actually held a Note 4 as you claim, you'd know its sides is aluminum or metal. Plastic would feel different. Metal has a distinct feel and look from plastic.
Aluminum is soft. My umbrella's frames are aluminum. My two screen doors at home are made of aluminum. Today, I drank a refreshing drink from a can made of aluminum. If you're talking about "premium" you should get yourself a Vertu phone made of titanium, leather and sapphire. A smartphone like the Galaxy Note series is about performance, and versatility, less to do about trying to fill up a lacking social status with a device with partial aluminum parts.
Do you know what apparently "premium" product looks like without an exterior cover? Have a good look:
If you can't argue in a language, best not. Describing the Note 4 like "uses usb2 bc the phone is curved" paints the picture of the ENTIRE Note 4 as "curved" and therefore it must use a micro USB 2.0, which does not make sense at all.
the Sprint Galaxy Note 3, an update to Android 4.4.4 is approaching.
here is a change log
HD voice Icon support
International Wi-Fi Calling support
Google Security Patches

aluminium is lightweight as hell and it feels premium but still looks like plastic for some reason
and last aluminium has weak corrosion thats true but putting it in salty makes it corrode faster.
I purchased this product a few months back and in a total lifetime of 5 months the mother-board has been replaced twice. When asked for the replacement as the quality seems bad; the online technical support suggests me to go on submitting my phone to the service center till my warranty lasts. They are actually forcing me to use the sub-standard product and not helping at all. I am surprised by the way samsung is dealing with high-end phone users. Makes me realize why people say that 'Dont buy Samsung phones'.
Actually, it is not eventi a new thing. Note 2 had the same rounded glass borders ad note 4...

Designing forms are based on functions considered in the planning or conceptual stages. Form follows function. Therefore, they intended not to put a micro USB 3.0 for the Note 4. It was intentional. Not because there was no more space.
Sure you held one... ;-p You can't even tell if the sides are made of aluminum.

and you cant bend a usb port ..ok it can be done but that means it would need another version of the charger and nothing would be compatible.
had it in my hands and when I saw the bottom of it that was the only explanation that i thought of.
if you don't like it ok but don't say I talk nonsense man.

The back cover meeting the metal frame is chamfered curved. But telling us "the frame is slightly curved if you see the phone from the bottom" only now does not have ANYTHING to do with the fact why a micro USB 3.0 wasn't used.
Gerald Damian, 08 Sep 2014Please let me know which version is working on ur note 3 thanks the version im using is 3.66 . jus search for that version on google search. its there .

2 I did not mean that the display is curved genius. the frame is slightly curved if you see the phone from the bottom lol
The Note 3 is by far the best phone I've owned to date. Love the specs, battery life, free apps, ease of usage, everything!
Does Note 3 T-Mobile work in other countries than USA?........Do I need unlocking??
Gerald Damian, 06 Sep 2014I installed it, and change the source settings also but it's recorded only my voice.. you have downloaded the newest version.it wont work. i have old version of it. go on to google and search automatic call recorder apk and download old version of it.

The back cover has lasted had not worn out when if I change batteries almost every day since January. If you want to keep your Note 3 protected and keep that think profile, I suggest you get a $10 aluminum frame. This is what I use currently:

2. Hahaha! The Note 4 is not "curved". If you were pertaining to the curved right side of the Note Edge, it still has nothing to do with why they used a USB 2.0 port. USB 3.0 can go up to 10 times fast transfer speeds for large files, if your laptop uses SSD. Hey, I'd appreciate having my waiting time cut to 10 times shorter for content transfer to and from my Note 3. This is a step back in the name of some tech to speed up charging. I can see problems with this in the future.
3. Reports already say it's aluminum. Aluminum doesn't rust. So your argument of "the metal frame doesn't like water" doesn't hold water. We can even look at watches made of exterior metal which are waterproof.
I want someone to be honest with me. If I buy this phone and don't use it with any pouch or any protection is it true that I get scratches and dents over few months? Does the faux metal lining peel off easily?
TheNeighbor, 08 Sep 2014All of your 4 comments are misleading!

3 they say its a metal frame so it can be aluminium but it doesn't have to be.
