Galaxy Note 4 Release Nears: Go Hands On Today



The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 release is just over a week away, but you don’t need to wait any longer to try the Galaxy Note 4 for yourself. You can go hands on with the Galaxy Note 4 at Best Buy locations with a Samsung Experience Shop today.

If you can’t figure out if the iPhone 6 Plus or the Galaxy Note 4 is the right phone for you, many Best Buy locations offer a hands on experience with the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in white or black. Most of these stores include the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and LG G3 nearby so you can see how they compare to the Galaxy Note 4 for yourself.

Galaxy Note 4 Release Date Hands On

In preparation for the Galaxy Note 4 release date, you can go hands on at Best Buy.

This is a very smart move by Samsung. Many of the best new Galaxy Note 4 features are things that are best experienced first hand like a new metal design and a brilliant 2k display. After spending time with the Galaxy Note 4 we can tell you that the Note 4 display looks very impressive and that the new metal frame and soft touch back creates a higher-end feel for the Note 4, but this is no substitute for touching and looking at the Galaxy Note 4 for yourself.

After a limited engagement at a small number of Best Buy locations last month you can go hands on with the Galaxy Note 4 at most Best Buy locations with a Samsung Experience Store inside.

This is a special area of the store where Samsung gear is front and center with many demo units and special staff to answer your questions about Samsung items.

Samsung Specialty Stores are similar to a small Apple Store inside a Best Buy. Our local Best Buy location featured two Galaxy Note 4 display units. One in black and one in white, to help customers check out the new Galaxy Note 4 without waiting for the release date.

Use this tool to search for a Samsung Experience Store near you that already features the Galaxy Note 4 display units for users to go hands on with. The list does not appear to include every store, including the one we visited, so if in doubt you can call a local Best Buy and ask if they have a Samsung Experience Store. You’ll notice this area in the store when you arrive with big Samsung signage.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 release date starts on October 17th in the U.S., although the Verizon Galaxy Note 4 release date is  several days later on October 23rd. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 price is $299 on a two-year contract. Sprint originally charged $350 on a two-year contract, but Best Buy currently lists the price at $299. This is for a the 32GB Galaxy Note 4 in white and black.

Standout Samsung Galaxy Note 4 features include the 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display. This is a Quad-HD or 2K display, similar to the one we loved on the LG G3. If you go in store make sure you load up some high-resolution photos or a video to see the details the Galaxy Note 4 screen shows compared to your current phone.

Another popular feature is the S Pen stylus. Normally stored inside the phone, Best Buy includes these attached to the table so you can try out the new S Pen that delivers better touch sensitivity than the Note 3. There is also a fingerprint scanner in the home button that unlocks the phone. There is 32GB of internal storage and a Micro SD card capable of adding another 128GB of storage.

There is a 16MP rear facing camera that can record 4k video and a 3.7MP front facing camera with a wide-angle selfie mode.
