The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has arrived in the US and is now available to purchase through Amazon, which is selling the unlocked international variant of the phablet flagship. That means the device is available before the official roll out of the US version of the handset on carriers later in October. Of course, to grab the GN4 off Amazon you will have to cough up the full unlocked price, with the white version ($868.99) and black version ($854.88). There is also the same unlocked version available in gold ($904.48).Amazon says the device will ship in 6 to 10 days, but while you may think this is a good chance to get the Galaxy Note 4, you'd be wrong. In fact you?d be mad, because while the Note 4 is available through Amazon, it is the international version that is not US carrier specific, and that dear readers means that this handset comes without a warranty or 4G LTE connectivity. Samsung's latest large screen onslaught is currently in the pre-order stage with the big four US carriers (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile). Each carrier is offering different ways to buy the device on their various plans, but on a standard two year service commitment all are offering the Galaxy Note 4 for $299. The Galaxy Note 4 is arguably the best smartphone at the moment, it has a 5.7-inch Quad HD screen, a Snapdragon 805 processor clocked at 2.7GHz, an Adreno 420 GPU, 3GB RAM, and of course the S Pen stylus. It is also more affordable than previous Galaxy Note models according to Samsung, although on a basic money down deal in the US it still tallies to the same price as other Note?s, so the company is obviously talking about unlocked. However, the cost of this unlocked variant on Amazon is not what I would call affordable... and need I stress, comes without a warranty.
