As you noticed today Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 5. I watched the announcement at work while it was going on. Here are some specs on it!
Rogers will be selling it for $359.99 on a 2-year term, $860 no-term and the reservation system will be open as of August 14th.
Rogers will be releasing this device ON August 21st in 32GB sapphire black it seems but hopefully they add the more GB later on.
If you have any questions or concerns please post ANYTHING about the Note 5 and reservations here please and i will be able to assist you with any questions you have!
While there are lots of complaints about 5.1.1 on the new Samsung devices ( I have a few ), one significant positive of waiting for the Reservations is the wireless charger. I have to say, I am impressed.
I have it attached through USB into my port replicator ( not directly into a power outlet with the Fastdongle). The speed that it recharges is very good, and this isn't even the new " Fast wireless Pad ".
If you don't want to pay for one then I would suggest the reservation wait is worth it, although I can't for the life of me understand why reservations are not being filled. The worst part is nobody in the know is talking. We'll never get a factual answer. I doubt they're holding back due to software issues or any other problem as the stores are still getting stock. We'll never know.
ROGERS - Would it be too much to ask that someone from Rogers, with knowledge of the status of these Samsung reservations, provide us with an update ?
1. What, if anything is going on that has Reservations still on hold 11 days after launch ?
2. When can we expect to see reservations filled ?
Just read that T-Mobile in the USA is rolling out an update to Note 5 and Edge + phones to get Video calling over LTE and WIFI.
Guess it's not specific to phones but a carrier feature. Question is, will Rogers offer this feature ??????
