Pre-ordered mine on the 18th of April and received shipping notification yesterday. I am in Manitoba so I don't know if that has an effect compared to a big metropolitan area such as Toronto or Vancouver! Hope everyone gets the device soon! I am sitting here like an 8 year old on Christmas Eve waiting for jolley old saint Nicholas to show up!
That is great news and I hope you get yours today! I live in Toronto and still hoping that I will receive that most anticipated shipping notification this week. Thanks for your sharing your timeline. Enjoy your phone!
Lol yea, there are always a few that have issues, iPhone included.
Unfortunately, this pink display issue seems to be wide spread. Samsung is issuing a software update to help calibrate the red down, but it won't help most of them, as the pink is only SECTIONS of the display. Hopefully the replacement is better. It's a great phone other than that. The location of the fingerprint reader is really bad, but the lightning fast iris scanner makes up for it.
It's just funny that the biggest seller (the Infinity display) has issues out of the box. You'd think they'd check/calibrate them better at the factory, lol.
@GibMcFragger I had read that the fix through software could only be done by an authorized tech center as well. This won't be a "public" patch to fix the red issues just yet.
@Meowmix I think they will fix your pink issue with a software update later on, but you could get the fix right away at a Samsung repair place maybe?
The whole red/pink screen thing is going somewhat viral on the cell phone sites I've read, but samsung has promised a quick fix.
