Best Buy offers a $200 off Galaxy Note 4 deal with the trade in of almost any working smartphone. This includes that incredibly old Android phone sitting in a drawer at home. It just needs to power on and the screen needs to be functional.
This doubles the value of devices like an original HTC One or the Nexus 4, and is an even better deal if you have an older device. The trade in doesn’t even need to be your current phone, you can buy an old smartphone on Craigslist for $25 to $40 and turn it into $200 off the Galaxy Note 4.
Of course Best Buy uses some fine print on the deal stating “Not all phones are eligible for trade-in and trade-in value may vary. Excludes phones that are cracked, water-damaged or that lack power.” When we spoke to a rep at the local Best Buy he was adamant that there are not many limitations on devices.
Although this Galaxy Note 4 deal is not an up front discount on the phone, you do get the $200 Best Buy gift card at the time of purchase, which you can use to pay for the new Galaxy Note 4.
Best Buy offers online Galaxy Note 4 pre-orders, but this deal is only available in stores, and it is only good through October 16th, 2014. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 release date starts the next day on AT&T and other carriers.
You can only get this Galaxy Note 4 deal at Best Buy and only on Verizon, AT&T and Sprint. Best Buy does offer Verizon Edge and AT&T Next plans, which you can likely use with this deal. The fine print also includes the requirement to sign a new two-year agreement, so you need a line that is eligible for the upgrade.
Many Best Buy locations already offer a an opportunity to go hands on with the Galaxy Note 4 at the Samsung experience shop. This is an excellent way to experience the Galaxy Note 4’s 5.7-inch 2k display and to feel the new metal frame and soft touch back that combine to deliver a more premium feel than previous Galaxy Note devices.
The new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 features a removable back that allows users to replace the battery and includes a slot to expand the built-in 32GB storage by up to 128GB with a Micro SD card. There is a 16MP rear-facing camera with a stock camera app that includes many shooting modes and there is a 3.7-MP front-facing camera that includes an option to take wider angle selfies.
Tucked inside the Note 4 is a new and improved S Pen with greater sensitivity and users can also now enjoy new software that takes a photo of a whiteboard and turn it into an editable note so you can add your own notes to class notes or meeting notes without re-writing everything.
Te Samsung Galaxy Note 4 runs Android 4.4 with a Samsung skin on top and various special features like Multi-Window mode that lets users run two apps at once.
