Samsung Galaxy Note 4

With the UK Samsung Galaxy Note 4 release date pencilled in for October 10, Note 4 pre-orders have been opened up for eager owners.

With the eagerly awaited phablet set to go head-to-head with Apple’s recently released iPhone 6 Plus, the Galaxy Note 4 will not be easy on your wallet.

EE has confirmed that those looking to snap up the Galaxy Note 4 on a £40.99 per month, 24 month contract will have to fork out a £110 upfront handset fee.

This costly tariff will come with just a 2GB monthly 4G data allowance alongside unlimited calls and unlimited texts.

While EE will offer the Note 4 with as small a handset fee as £29.99 (when taken on a £55.99 per month contract), those looking for a lower monthly outlay can sign up to a £14.99 monthly deal. That’s assuming they can stomach the staggering £460 handset cost.

Carphone Warehouse has joined EE in offering Note 4 pre-orders. The high street chain has confirmed it will offer the handset for free on a £43.50 per month, 24 month contract.

“Larger screened smartphones are one of the fastest growing segments in the market. We’ve noticed that once customers move to larger screen they rarely go back to using a smaller handset," an official Carphone Warehouse spokesperson said.

"Consumers are using their smartphones for work and watching content more than ever and with this comes the need for a screen that’s bigger than the average smartphone but still small enough to be used as a phone. Samsung’s Note devices have long dominated this area and the Note 4 is a worthy successor.

"As bigger screens are becoming more common and consumers get used to the benefits they bring, we are expecting this to be the most popular Note to date.”

High fees aside, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is shaping up to be a true powerhouse of the smartphone space.

Packing an LG G3 rivalling 5.7-inch QHD display, the Note 4 pairs this stunning 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution with a powerful 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 processor and 3GB of RAM.

Sporting a pleasing, new, metal-edged design, the Note 4 – which also packs an inbuilt fingerprint scanner and heart rate sensor – adds a 16-megapixel, optical image stabilised rear mounted camera.

I pre-ordered mine from Three today, unlimited voice/data/texts for £49/month.

The guy at the call centre told me that they're selling like mad and that's before they've even put it on their website.

Cheaper than the iPhone 6 and better quality, better specs and more features. Oh wait and it doesn't bend. #bendgate

Yup, handset is free at that price.

I could have got the same package at ~£44 from Three if you paid about £100 up front. Worked out to be about £2/month more expensive to distribute the cost, so decided to do it that way.
