samsung galaxy note 4 first impressions (11 of 20)

Samsung sold 4.5 million units of the Galaxy Note 4 since the device went on sale on September 26, according to a Korean language report citing industry sources.

Samsung has not announced any figures yet, so take this report with a grain of salt until further confirmation.

In its first 28 days of availability last year, the Note 3 hit 5 million units, so at first glance, Samsung doesn’t seem to have any reasons to celebrate. But the 4.5 million units is actually a good sign when you consider that the Note 4 only went on sale around the world starting in mid-October. Samsung first released the Note 4 in South Korea at the end of September (reportedly on an accelerated schedule, due to concerns over the iPhone 6 Plus), followed by China in early October. In the US, UK and the rest of Europe the Note 4 only became available from carriers and retailers from October 17.

It looks like the Note 4 is selling relatively well (though we’ll wait for the official announcement), which is exactly what Samsung needs right now. Faced with a slowdown in sales at the high and low ends of the market, Samsung recently issued a dim forecast for Q3, with profit predicted to fall 60 percent compared to the same quarter last year. Under these conditions, the Note 4, and to lesser extent, the Galaxy Alpha are Samsung’s big sales drivers this holiday season.

    Samsung battle with Apple continues.

  • Nabeel

    what does it exactly costs off contract….in USD..??..AnyBody..?

    • Urbz

      “The Galaxy Note 4, on sale in the United States since last week, commands a $299.99 on-contract price point at most carriers. Off-contract, the device can be found from anywhere between $700 and $826. It’s one of the most expensive smartphones on the market and that’s a big reason why consumers are seeking out Galaxy Note 4 deals in the days after the Galaxy Note 4 release.”

    • G-N

      I believe it’s around $850.

      • G-N

        I just saw it for $750 through Tmobile actually.

    • Xavier_NYC

      Depends on Carrier.. Verizon I think 699, AT&T 825, T mobile I believe 750 and Sprint 720

      • Tom

        in Canada its 899 plus tax :(

        • Xavier_NYC

          Damn, talk about rape.. BUt they prob don’t add carrier bloat etc

  • Michael Wages

    I wish I could say I was one of the 4.5 million but my pre-order from BestBuy hasn’t come in yet.

    • TheBeeNet

      Mine neither. Bummer

    • Xavier_NYC

      Really? What state or country are you in? I got an email the 16th saying mine was ready for pickup..

    • JWolf_PDX

      Same…

    • Wes

      Where are you from? I’m from Minnesota and I still haven’t gotten mine yet :( I’m getting frustrated!! I want it so bad!!

    • Michael Wages

      I’m in the US in Kentucky. Looking at Best Buys Facebook page this looks like its a relatively big problem. Lots of disgruntled Note 4 pre-order complaints.

      • JasonL1C4

        KY represent!

    • AndroidDev123

      I’ve chalked it up to ordering the Note 4 in white on Verizon, which isn’t due to be released for another week (stupid Verizon). I’m only getting Verizon’s version because it’s carrier unlocked and BestBuy was the only store to let me trade in my old Thunderbolt for $200 off (no T-mobile unfortunately).

  • MasterMuffin

    iPhone 6 and 6+ hit 21 million in 2 weeks. Don’t know how much of that is 6 and how much is 6+, but this makes me sad

    • syter

      Why? The note 4 is obviously selling well in a full month in about 2 countries

      • MasterMuffin

        It’s selling well, but the difference still makes me sad

        • Jayfeather787

          Remember muffin. Apple needs to stay in business. We need something to make fun of.
          :)

          • MasterMuffin

            True dat :)

        • YRaj

          not a fair comparison…for Apple users, they are getting something revolutionary. There are many Note 3 and even Note 2 users that are enjoying their current device so much, they see no reason for the purchase. However, for Apple users, they are finally getting a bigger phone and features we had in 2012…so I can understand their excitement.

    • Guest 123

      Samsung has killed their ability to drive the frenzy for a new upgrade because they release a different device every month, if not five.

    • chris_3336

      21 million? There wasn’t any official report ,only speculations. Considering that official iphone sales for that whole quarter and for all models was 39 millions I doubt they sold that amount.

      • hustis

        Exactly and if you check their last earnings their profits are nearly identical to 2012 despite them selling only one phone that year lol

        • BP

          Not sure what you’re looking at. Apple revenue was up 12% from Q4 2013, profit up to 8.5B from 7.5B. Even so, a lot more than just the iPhone affect profit, so it wouldn’t mean a whole lot.

          • hustis

            Read what I said i said 2012

          • BP

            Ok true, but 8.5B is still significantly higher than 8.2B, and certainly better than samsungs declining profits. They sold 27m phones that quarter compared to 39m this past quarter, so the connection between profits and phones sold isn’t that simple.

          • kg2105

            8.5 is not significantly higher than 8.2, it’s less than 4%. Doesn’t work when you are talking about actual amount either because 300 million is not a lot for companies like Samsung or Apple. Nice try though.

      • MasterMuffin

        You have to remember that this 4.5 million isn’t an official info either

        • A HUGE number of Notes were stolen in a dozen of trailer trucks, I guess that’s where the 15 million pieces that never made it into shops went. They were sold “offline”, so yeah, there are more Notes in the wild than iPhones.

    • Viswanathan P

      dont be sad, iphone is the only phone for apple , but for Samsung its not like that, it offers a lot to choose

    • Xavier_NYC

      If I’m a guy that sells two cars with the same engine that people are familiar with and don’t want to change vs a guy that sells multiple cars with an engine that’s for the most part the same with minor tweaks who do you think would seem to sell more?

      • MasterMuffin

        Your mom? Trick question, I vote Toyota

        • Xavier_NYC

          I don’t do mom jokes.. Watch your mouth.. I didn’t disrespect yours so don’t disrespect mine

          • MasterMuffin

            Don’t take it so seriously.

          • PoisonApple31

            Somebody call the Wambulance!

      • A.J.

        Obviously the guy with multiple cars (taking away good marketing) let’s count every single smartphone with android system and how many that would be (in two weeks)

        • Xavier_NYC

          The point I’m trying to make is that it seems as if Apple is selling way more but that’s just because there’s only one phone that runs IOS (Technically 2) that is revealed every year, but because there’s so many Android Phones (hundreds if not thousands) it would appear that a single phone like the Note 4 that has all the competition for android isn’t selling well.

    • t_t_nue

      Iphone sales are over exaggerated. It’s like Floyd Mayweather telling the world he sale 10 million ppv fighting nobody. Iphone & Mayweather are synonymous… they’re both overpricef and overhyped…. as well as underperformed.

      • BP

        These estimates may not be accurate, but Phone sales (not estimates) are pretty well documented. You can of course debate the price and the hype, but if you choose not to believe the facts (sales numbers), then it’s a bit hopeless now isn’t. But just for the fun of it… Samsung phones are hyped ever bit as much, “underperformed” isn’t specific enough to debate, and Apple phones have always been more affordable than Samsung’s due to the higher resale vale.

        • kg2105

          That is not what affordable means it has nothing to do with resale value, affordable only refers to the price. Apple phones are always hyped more than Samsung, that’s not even close. Apple fanboys believe iphones are flawless and would buy it even if the iphone was just a turd with a badge, oh wait that is what the iphone is and they still buy it anyways.

    • Christopher Moore

      Apple always does their sales upfront but come Q1 2015 you will see a huge drop off. By May Samsung will have the Galaxy S6 which should sale more than the Note.
      I’m not saying that Samsung will beat the iPhone. I’m just saying that timing your release is smarter than doing everything all at once.

    • Bandar Everlast

      the iPhone sold world wide in the same day , the note 4 is not yet available in lots of countries , some may have to wait to next month like me :(
      am sure that the note will be a blast

      • Android Developer

        it’s too bad though. They should have let people order as soon as it was announced.
        Currently, they lose interest …

      • YRaj

        This is a major hiccup by Samsung. Apple distribution network was very efficient and quickly got the new Iphones into their customers’ hands. All part of how you support sales.

    • Anonymousfella

      Global rollout was slower than the Note 3. A more insightful look would be one month later(or q3 sales)
      Plus Samsung doesn’t have so many sheeps!

  • Tom-Helge Andersen

    I’m one of those 4.5 million who have the Galaxy Note 4 :-)

  • Xavier_NYC

    Battery Life has been epic.. I see why sales are great . 1 1/2 days with heavy to light usage and mostly on mobile network unless I’m home with 5 hrs on screen time..

    • Guest 123

      “heavy to light usage”
      WTF does that mean?

      • Xavier_NYC

        Meaning theres periods when I’m using the sh*t out of it (At Home/Public Transportation) and periods where I can’t use it as much (because I’m at work actually doing work).. Surprised I had to explain that..

        • Guest 123

          So, you mean to say you have moderate usage on average.

          • Xavier_NYC

            Sure why not… Lets call it that.

          • smokebomb

            No, that is not what he means. I have a note 3. I have a 2 hour public transit commute (by choice. It’s free through my employer and keeps miles off my car) both ways. That brings me down to 80% by the time I get to work. If I don’t use it at all until I leave, it goes down about another 5% then, the 20% usage again on the commute home. So that’s down to 55% with just heavy usage. That does not average out to moderate usage. Even when I do use my phone, it’s not enough to force the average use into moderate territory. Sounds like if I had a note 4, I’d never have to carry a charger.

        • Peter

          I’m not surprised you had to explain it because your original statement, “heavy to light usage,” is meaningless without an actual explanation, which you provided in your second post.

          It’s like someone asking me, “How long does it take you to drive to work?” I respond, “A long time and a short time.” Again, a fundamentally meaningless answer unless it’s accompanied by an explanation.

          • Xavier_NYC

            I understand what you’re saying but that’s not a good analogy, no one would use that response. You’re correct that I should have explained but A long time to short time is just a major contradiction vs something going from heavier to lighter which makes more sense.. But I see what you’re saying

          • V-Phuc

            LOL. Too many people having too much time on their hands to dissect other people’s comments, huh?!
            Are there new features with the Note 4 S-pen compared to that of Note 3? I promise not to call you on syntax or grammar! LOL.

          • Xavier_NYC

            Wouldn’t know, it’s my first Samsung device ever.. Prior to that Ive had a LG G2, HTC M8 and IPhone 5 and enlighten me on where my grammar is incorrect since you brought it up..

          • Android Developer

            so are you happy with the device?
            is it true that they went back to USB2 ?

          • Xavier_NYC

            yes they did go back to USB2 but I wouldn’t notice the Diff because It’s my first sammy device but so far I think it pretty good. TouchWiz has a hiccup or two once in a blue but otherwise is really good.

          • Android Developer

            I see. Maybe with Lollipop it would be much better.

          • Xavier_NYC

            Yeah I’m hoping Sammy tones down TouchWiz.. Work really well on the Note but I wish they’d be more like HTC and lightly skin it.. Keep it as close to stock as possible while keeping multi tasking and S pen functionality..

          • Android Developer

            Speaking of lighter, is it true it takes about 8GB for the OS itself?
            If so, I really wonder what really takes so much. Can you please check it out?
            is it possible to minimize this?

          • Xavier_NYC

            Looking at my storage I have 11GB of Music, 6.6 GB worth of Apps, Images/documents/other stuff take up about 1GB. I have 5.5GB of storage left so 11 + 6.6 + 1 + 5.5 = around 24.1. 32 – 24.1 = 7.9. Yeah you’re correct TouchWiz takes up about 8GB and I don’t think there’s anything you can do to change that. I do however have a 64 GB Samsung pro Micro SD card so I’ll be fine.. Was 124 bucks at Best Buy but got it for $52 because they had to price match Amazon..

          • Android Developer

            I think there is a screen that shows you the storage information, so that you don’t have to calculate yourself.
            I wonder if the 8GB includes the system apps (the built in apps) or it’s in addition to those.
            May I ask which apps of Samsung take the most? and how much space all of the system apps take?
            I’ve made an app that can measure it in a precise way, if you wish:
            https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lb.app_manager

            It’s interesting, as Android doesn’t suppose to take this much of space.
            I’ve selected all of the system apps of my device (running CM, which is quite clean), and they all got to be 260MB in total…
            The weird thing is that my device has 16GB (Galaxy S3), and in the “total space” I see 11.35GB. I wonder what happened to the rest. Do the system apps get inside the ~4GB being wasted or not? and what takes this much space anyway?
            If I check the “system” folder, I can only see it takes about ~537 MB, and looking at the other folders, they don’t take much to go so far to ~4GB…
            I’ve checked it on Xperia Compact device too, and noticed it probably uses abut 4.5GB of space too.

            Another interesting thing: some people claimed that on Android Lollipop, apps might take even more space due to the nature of ART compiling to native code. It would be interesting to compare such a thing.

          • Xavier_NYC

            You’re correct, TouchWiz takes up 7.7 GB. Also the systems apps take up around 250 MB. So TouchWiz is doing most of the damage. The two Samsung apps that take up the most is Galaxy Apps (where you can buy samsung apps) and Smart Remote at around 40MB. Also you might be correct about Lollipop and ART but I’m not 100% sure. I know ART has the app in queue so it takes less longer to load and open and is more stable. at least I think that’s what’s suppose to happen. Good thing though is that if needed I can transfer most of the large apps I’ve downloaded like Grand Theft auto at 2.5GB and move it over to my external SD card if needed

          • Android Developer

            So what people call “bloatware” is actually apps that don’t take so much space?
            Why does TW take so much then? is it drivers for other products?
            It doesn’t make sense.
            My Windows 8 OS takes (in “windows” folder) ~16GB . I remember it took much less before, but that’s a desktop OS. I don’t get how could a mobile OS take so much (actually, same about desktop OS, but that’s more forgivable, usually).

          • Xavier_NYC

            It’s apps added by the carrier as well as the company that makes the device (for this example samsung) that not only take up space but are constantly using CPU even if you’re not using the app.. Samsung only adds like a couple of them but carriers like AT&T add a sh*t ton.. This pic shows 8 of about 24 of these apps.. Luckily I can disable most of these but still takes up space on the SD card

          • Android Developer

            I think it’s similar to what I have in my country, but I don’t think they reach 24.
            If you have root, you can use my app to uninstall them.
            Also, if you don’t have root, I’ve made a tutorial of how to (try to) disable even apps that don’t allow you to disable them:
            https://plus.google.com/116533422769046577831/posts/JSnPCh76aaJ
            It takes a lot of steps, and it might not work on some cases, but if’s something…
            You can also choose “force-stop” on apps. Most of the times, that’s almost like disabling them, as it sets them into “stopped-mode”.

          • Xavier_NYC

            I’m pretty familiar with rooting. The only thing though is that the bootloader is locked and there’s currently no root for the AT&T version. Also with Titanium Backup allows me to delete system apps once I root. I’m trying to stay away from rooting for now because it sucks not being able to get software updates and also Samsung is promising Lollipop for the Note 4 and S5 before the end of the year..

          • Android Developer

            rooting disables updates?
            I didn’t know that.
            I’ve rooted my device (SGS3) in the first week , and I’ve flashed the latest version of the rom (based on Samsung’s official rom) multiple times . I used “Omega” rom for that. Because of that, I never even got an automatic update from Samsung. I didn’t need to … :)
            Maybe they will make a rom for Note 4 too.

            Not sure though about carriers versions of the device. I wonder if it’s ok (might brick if not) or even possible to flash Samsung’s official roms on their devices.

          • towel root

          • smokebomb

            Ugh. I’ll never use AT&T. I’ll never go back to Verizon either. At least on T-Mobile you can disable most of their shitware.

          • Xavier_NYC

            Well all of those are disabled now but they still take up space. I wish carriers would just provide the service and leave phones alone.. Even though Apple is not great I applaud them for standing up to carriers and not allowing them to fill phones with crap and locked bootloaders

          • smokebomb

            It doesn’t matter. buy an SD card. $35 on amazon for 64GB.

          • Android Developer

            I wish. Google made SD-card lose most of their purposes. Now apps cannot store there wherever they wish unless you have root.
            This means that camera apps, office apps, and any content related app cannot store their content there, unless maybe it will ask the user about each time it does it (I didn’t try it, since I already have a rooted device).

            “Heavy TO light usage” <– dictates a -range-
            "Long time AND a short time" <– dictates the compounding of semantic opposites, when speaking in terms of time.
            Ex.
            How long does it take you to drive here?
            Response1: A short and long time. [Error]
            Response2: It varies, from short times to long times. [Perfectly fine]
            Conclusion: "Heavy to light usage" makes complete sense.

          • Peter

            Hmm, in your first reply to Xavier_NYC regarding the “heavy to light usage” phrase, you say, “WTF does that mean?” Then, in your follow-up response above, you say, “Conclusion: “Heavy to light usage” makes complete sense.” You can’t have it both ways.

      I’m the only one who actually understand your use of “heavy to light usage”? Lol

      • Xavier_NYC

        It would appear so lol.. I thought it was pretty straight forward. In a day and a half there’s periods when I use it non stop and theres periods where I can’t use it as much.. But hey, they wanted to go with Moderate which I though meant no heavy usage but just barely using it it here and there but what the hell do I know

      I’ve been up to 6.5 hours display time with 10% left. After a day of work, I usually end up with 60% Battery. And i’m on the phone quite a bit.

        Yeah I’ve been pretty impressed with it so far. What carrier are you on and did you receive the software update that helps improve the battery life? I didn’t yet?

            From what I read the update significantly improved the battery. I’m still waiting on AT&T to stop being d*cks and send out the update already

    • Jerry Rich

      It was in 3 days, and those were pre-order numbers. Unfortunately after the infamous #bendgate episode, when people found out how bad the construction quality was, 8.5 million were returned or the order was canceled.

      • Android Developer

        where did you read about the 8.5 ?

        • BP

          He made it up. But actually 8.5 (not 8.5 million) may be pretty accurate. Bendgate was all smoke and no fire.

          • Android Developer

            I wonder though how many real purchases were done for both IOS devices and others.
            Guess I’ll have to wait for another IDC statistics. Wonder how they measure it anyway.

          • Yogington

            Yeh because .5 of a phone is possible.

  • ryq24

    this is one beautiful phone but very expensive too!

  • BP

    Samsung is coming back down to earth. Sold a lot of phones with a decent product (s4/note2) and obnoxious marketing, but it’s not looking great for them anymore. Phones haven’t changed a lot recently, and are probably starting to hit a point where there’s not a ton of room for innovation left. All tech reaches this point. Once that happens you have apple fans who will continue to buy apple, and then you have the android fans who will split between LG, Sony, Samsung, Motorola, Oppo, Huawei, OnePlus, etc…. Flagship prices will start to drop, and this will cut significantly into samsung’s mid tier phones where they still dominate. Am i right?

    • Jerry Rich

      Like anyone cares what you think.

      The only phone that hasn’t changed much in the last 4 years is apple. The only company that hit “a point where there’s not a ton of room for innovation left” is apple. Do you see a trend there?

      • BP

        I’m saying all phone manufacturers are reaching a point where there’s not a ton of room for innovation left, and once that happens it will hurt Samsung more than apple. Why would you say Samsung has more room than apple? Maybe no one cares what I think, but which company is a better investment going forward? I presented a theory and maybe I’m wrong, but if so, why?

      • BP

        If Samsung really has more room to innovate than apple, then that just says that their current product isn’t as good doesn’t it?

        • Jerry Rich

          Take a good honest look at apple’s latest, the 6 and 6+ and compare them to the major android flagships. Apple is clearly lodged somewhere in 2012 and because of their mindset seems incapable of moving forward. They are not innovators and haven’t been for years, they are followers.

          Samsung, HTC, LG, Sony and others are the innovators now and have been for years.

            What exactly is innovation?
            Adding NFC with no real purpose other than transferring files (tons of advertising for this, but does anyone actually use it?) which could easily be accomplished using apps like bump? Or is innovation, adding NFC to create a more secure way to pay, also adding convenience to the consumer?

            Is innovation adding a fingerprint sensor that’s inconsistent, and slow to the point where few people actually use it? Or is innovation adding a fingerprint sensor that’s very consistent, and faster than swiping to unlock, often unlocking the phone before it’s out of your pocket?

            Is innovation adding a duel led flash so that pictures have more natural color, and 240 fps slow motion that is perfectly smooth? Or is innovation tying to win the spec race solely for marketing purposes by cramming a ton of pixels in a small sensor, giving a barely noticeable bump in quality on a bright outdoor pic, while sacrificing low light quality and making picture file sizes enormous?

            Maybe innovation is making one phone for every carrier and still making it thinner than the competition?

            I’d say Samsung’s only recent notable innovations are the big screen (not exactly rocket science) and the S-pen. The S-pen is good, although I’m not certain I’d use it a lot. Most of what you say are innovations are merely incremental spec updates, some of which provide little value other than an easier way to market the phone. Higher pixel density screen: not noticeably better if you can’t see the pixels. Faster processor: also not that big of a deal if you’re comparing it to a phone that gets similar performance with a slower processor. Maybe you should take more of an honest look?

            Clearly you’re addicted to the apple Kool-Aid. It’s a waste of my time trying to explain reality to someone like you. You say the sky is green while everyone else sees it as blue. Apple will keep selling you slabs of aluminum that mimic what android phones had 2 years ago, and you and your ilk will wait for them in line for hours.

          • BP

            You admit defeat this easy? Where are all these innovations you talk about?

          • Jerry Rich

            What part of, “It’s a waste of time trying to explain reality to you.” do you not understand? You really are as dumb as a post.

            The NFC payment was introduced with Google wallet in 2011 with the release of the Galaxy Nexus

          • BP

            Yes, an NFC payment system that is used about as much as fax machines these days. Having a feature, and having a feature that’s worth using are two totally different things.

          • kg2105

            Seriously you are such a worthless Apple whore. Innovation is better hardware, software, and features. Apple is WAY behind in all these categories, and the only “innovations” that Apple gets these days is by copying what Android phones already did years ago. Name one thing on the Iphone 6/6+ that hasn’t been done by Android (and frankly been done better on Android).

            Example: Apple did get some companies to sign up for their new NFC payment system, but Android has had NFC for years. Apple only created more fragmentation for NFC by doing this, some places that were accepting Google Wallet are starting their own payment system while blocking Apple and Google Wallet. So now Android is being indirectly punished for Apple’s fake innovation (shameless copying).

    That’s right!

    Ordered from Verizon online and preordered,.arrived 2 days ago…love it!!! This baby is really well made, I love the health monitor, the screen on 50% brightness and still looks amazing. The camera is fast, still getting used to the pano selfie. The auto hdr is excellent…better than some dslrs It is slick..can go on and on..still getting used to all the features. btw, battery life is excellent, i am a hard user, social media posting photos, listening to Soundcloud and online radio…still at 40% at end of day. The spare battery charger case and battery combo is sold out and back ordered!

  • The-Sailor-Man

    How could you say “month” ???
    Note 4 is hardly launched yet.

    But bashing Samsung must go on. Right?

    And what TH means this:
    “Samsung first released the Note 4 in South Korea… (reportedly on an accelerated schedule, due to concerns over the iPhone 6 Plus)”
    Am I reading Cult Of Mac …??????

    “Samsung recently issued a dim forecast for Q3, with revenue predicted to fall 60 percent compared to the same quarter last year” You mean profit? Revenue falling 60% will be the end of a company. Please report carefully.

  • Karly Johnston

    Sales are 10% lower y/y and the Alpha wannabe iPhone is an “important sales driver.” Sammy is in trouble.

  • Fabio

    In Italy is very difficolt to find one. I’m waiting too

  • jamesinkorea

    Is this something to be proud of?

    • Anonymousfella

      I’d say yes. Other Android OEMs would love to boast 4.5mil sales of their flagship devices.

  • Note 4 user

    That’s stupid on the launch day my local O2 store had only 4 new notes for sell, 2 black and 2 white and O2 website said coming-soon, all networks just wanted to sell more expensive iphones, note 4 it’s worth £600 and with O2 refresh you pay around £600, IPhone 6 it’s worth £539 and you pay even £720

  • Seth Forbus

    I’ve been backordered from T-Mobile for a week haha.

  • Michael Davis

    Sold and actually delivered to paying customers is an entirely different story. Having pre-ordered 2(1 white/1 black) at the beginning of the month from best buy and only having the white one delivered as of yesterday is not making me a Happy camper. I have to wonder just exactly how many people got frustrated and cancelled their order and picked up an iphone instead. I also fail to see how Samsung “ramped up their production to beat the release of the iPhone 6” when they can’t even fulfill the demand a week after of release for those that pre-ordered.

  • Adon

    not surprised at all. NOTE 4 COMPACT? The Galaxy Alpha was supposed (I THINK) to be that,but it not expensive . Google it if you forgot about it (i don’t blame you for forgetting)

  • Alan Rocha

    Mine is going to arrive tomorrow!!! I can’t wait!!!!

  • fortuna

    Wew. . 1month? I wager that the phone isnt yet available at 50% of target countries. Last week only 2 telcos in the philippines announced preorder details. .

  • sjdhdj

  • edwardjames
