I could only guess at the Note, and my guess would be not for a few months yet. But as I say, guess, not information.

But if you really want a Note, that sounds like you already have the answer to your question.

If you keep playing the "Get this or wait for that" game you'll never get a phone. You just have to pick a phone and get it.

While it is a guess, it has zero chance for the Note 3 to be out by May. The GS4 will just be getting released in the first week or two of May, let alone a device that hasn't even been announced yet.

The Note 3 most likely wont be released until fall. Probably August or September.

Sorry

The Note 3 most likely will not be released until later in the year.I would guess sometime after September. If you have a good phone, I would wait. But you know right after the Note 3 comes out they will start talking about the GS5. lol. Just pick what is good for you or save up your money and get them all.

The Note 3 won't be announced until Samsung yearly event in Berlin during the week of Sept 11th 2013. Then a month or two delay before it hits the States, so you're looking at the earliest an October release date but more realistically it'll probably drop sometime in November closer to Black Friday

it really depends on your needs and usage.

you gain the larger screen and Spen with the Note line...which is why I will wait.


Rumors are the S4 pre orders will start next week on some carriers and release by end of month.

I have no info on a Sprint release nor could I post it if I had it.


My opinion of the S4 is that it is a great device for those in need of an upgrade...but it is a "Skyrocket" release to me...an in between like the Skyrocket was to tide people over between the S2 and S3.

With rumors of an upgraded Iphone 5 and or a possible an Iphone6 releasing by end of year, it makes sense for Samsung to get something out there for those eligible to purchase prior to those rumored releases. just my .02

There are lots of rumors floating around with the galaxy mega series. Sounds like the mega is a mid tier version of the note and should be available in a few months. I am thinking the note 3 will release later on in the fall.

I would get a gs4 now rather then waiting 6 months for a note although maybe the mega will be good if its priced right. again its a constant waiting game with nothing but rumors to go on right now. As far as 5.0 is concerned the gs4 will get it no need to worry about that.

For me its mainly about removable sims... if the gs4 has one I'm in otherwise I'm waiting for the next round.

Think I'm waiting for the note 3. Unless the Mega has a 4000 battery and a stylus. The optimus g pro looks good

I really dislike the Mega so I'm going to wait for the Note 3 rumors say it may be aluminum instead of plastic.

If Verizon isn't launching the S4 until the end of May, and absolutely no rumors have even leaked about a possible Sprint S4 launch date, that doesn't sound promising for a Sprint S4 launch date anytime before June at the earliest.

Every other carrier has an anticipated S4 launch date, Sprint is the only one with not even a rumored date yet.

Or Sprint is holding on tight to that info to try and avoid it affecting the One's release this Friday.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a release date announced shortly after the One releases this weekend.

Samsung Galaxy S4 launches on seven U.S. carriers in April [updated] | BGR

BGR says on Sprint the S4 will be $149.99 for new customers, or $249.99 for upgrade. No word on whether this is the 16GB or 32GB version. Hopefully Best Buy offers a better deal then this

I'm definitely waiting for the Note 3. It will have everything the S4 has plus more features and that awesome huge screen. The Note 3 will probably come out with the next version of Android out the box. Plus there's rumors it may be made of aluminum instead of plastic. That part don't matter to me. My guess is a Aug/Sept announcement with a Sept/Oct launch date. I'm saving my money right now.

Sammy is saying q4 on the note 3.....about the same time we will hear about the s5



Fyi...sprint preorders on the s4 tomorrow. Some have pre ordered white today.

Phone releases 4/27

Price is 249.

Port in's get a $100 credit due to a promotion on any phone that expires 5/9. So new port in can get for $149

I can't upgrade until February of 1214, so I'll be waiting for the Note 3. The S4 is overpriced in my opinion.

I am not knocking the Note devices but they are just to big for me and even the S3/S4 are approaching the limit for a "phone" for my uses. The Note I consider more of a hybrid tablet and can't really see me carrying it to and around work. We txt a lot so I need to carry my phone at work.

Also if you didn't already preorder on Sprint, they are sold out.

Pre-order sold out! Our Samsung Galaxy SŪ 4 pre-order inventory has been spoken for. Check back on 4/27 for the national launch.
