Galaxy Note 4 Release Problems Plague Buyers



The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 release date continues in the United States with the arrival of the white Verizon Galaxy Note 4 though it, and other models, continue to present Galaxy Note 4 problems to buyers.

Samsung’s all new Galaxy Note 4 is an impressive smartphone and one that comes loaded with high-powered specs including a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, a brand new 16MP camera with Optical Image Stabilization, a new S Pen stylus, Android 4.4.4 KitKat software that’s backed by TouchWiz, and a brand new design that comes with both plastic and metal materials.

The device replaced the Galaxy Note 3 in several regions this month including the United States where it landed on the nation’s five largest carriers AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, and Verizon Wireless. The U.S. Galaxy Note 4 release date landed two weeks ago in the United States but the Galaxy Note 4 release date continues to drag on as buyers deal with Galaxy Note 4 problems.

Today, the Galaxy Note 4 release in the United States is complete with the arrival of the white Verizon Galaxy Note 4, a device that arrives nearly two weeks after its rivals and a week after its black counterpart. The device appears to be available online thru Verizon’s store though a quick availability check reveals that stock is extremely scarce if not non-existent in physical Verizon retail locations. This, of course, is just one of the Galaxy Note 4 problems that prospective buyers are facing.

Amazon, one of the world’s leading retailers, continues to see Galaxy Note 4 stock fluctuate in the weeks after the device’s release. There, the white Verizon Galaxy Note 4 remains out of reach, as does the AT&T Galaxy Note 4 and the black Sprint Galaxy Note 4. Amazon is still selling every model but the white Verizon variant. At Amazon, we’ve seen stock shift nearly every single day, a sign that Samsung’s supply is strained.

Best Buy, another leading retailer in the United States, used to sell the Galaxy Note 4 online. These days, the retailer is completely sold out of its online stock. All models, including the AT&T, Sprint and Verizon Galaxy Note 4, are completely sold out online and it’s not clear what kind of stock physical retail locations have. Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 release woes have flown under the radar here in the United States though that doesn’t mean that they’ve been any less troublesome to buyers.

Samsung’s planning an ambitious fall pipeline that not only includes the Galaxy Note 4 but the Galaxy Note Edge as well. The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is the company’s curved version of the Galaxy Note 4 and a device that’s experiencing some production delays of its own.

While the black Galaxy Note Edge is available on Japanese carriers KDDI and NTT DoCoMo, the white Galaxy Note Edge models are delayed into November. Samsung, it seems, needed more time to get the shade out from its production lines. Samsung is also clearly dealing with white Galaxy Note 4 supply issues as well.

The Galaxy Note Edge won’t be as common as the Galaxy Note 4. The device, which has hit Korea and Japan, is currently slated to hit the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, India, Australia, Russia, and China. The Galaxy Note 4, on the other hand, is set to hit 140 countries by the end of October with a few stragglers releasing the device in November.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 problems continue to wage on as we move closer to Black Friday and the start of the holiday shopping season. And while Samsung is in possession of one of the best supply chains in the world, it’s not clear if the company is going to be able to get these Galaxy Note 4 stock issues solved in time for the big weeks ahead.

    You should really consider changing this title to this article. At first glance I was expecting to ready about the phone actually not working. Your article is about supply shortages. Any hoot. Samsung totally underestimated the demand for the Note. Thankfully I can’t upgrade until mid-November so they better have the white one in stock when I am ready to pull the trigger. I actually like the 24K Gold one better but it’s not here in the U.S and I can’t spend $2000 on a phone right before the holidays.

    I am having issues with the note 4 and can’t find antone one to resolve them. It makes me mad because u spend so much on these phones and can’t help trouble shooting the problems. So this is my issues. I can’t use my internet/WiFi I have to have it shut off to work. I have used all my usage and has to pay for me because of this problem. I have been to Verizon three times and to our Internet provider twice no one can tell me what the problem is. Have been on the phone with customer service to and still having issues anyone have any help it would be much appreciated.

    This is a TERRIBLE article. Are you trying to kill demand for Samsung? Sure seems so.
    You claimed that the Verizon version…and “other models” continue to present “Galaxy Note 4 problems to buyers.”

    You did not describe a SINGLE “Galaxy Note 4” problem.

    And, you acted as if Samsung is having trouble meeting any demand, ie as if nobody can find the phone.
    I got mine, no problem. It’s a wonderful phone.

    The “problem” is that it’s a HOT phone, in INCREDIBLE demand, SO popular it flies off the shelves.

    Wake up!

    [I also note all your articles telling people NOT to pre-order, telling them to wait for the inevitable great deals coming. YOU WERE WRONG. Admit it!

    I pre-ordered at Best Buy. I got my (Sprint, White) Note 4 for $100! (Guaranteed $200 tradein value on any non-damaged smart phone)

    If I had waited, I would be paying much more, and likely be waiting in line.

    What a nonsensical title. Surely written by an Apple fanboy to kill Samsung’s reputation.

    This entire site exists solely to generate ad revenue. The best way to do that is provide clickbait headlines which cause people to want to read them. Every time you click on a link to this site, you’re ensuring they are paid money.
    The best way to stop this kind of trash pseudojournalism is to stop visiting sites like this. An alternative approach is to use an ad blocker to block loading of ads for sites that use this sort of tactic.
