[Deal Alert] The Unlocked AT&T Galaxy Note 4 Is $660 ($165 Off) On eBay Daily Deals

It isn't often that we issue a Deal Alert for a phone that still costs more than $500 after a discount, but thanks to AT&T's somewhat inflated pricing, this one qualifies. The carrier-branded version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 flagship is being sold on eBay for $659.99 today. That's a bit more than $160 off of AT&T's off-contract price for the phone, and still $50 cheaper than the international version of the Note 4 on Amazon.

IK Multimedia Announces iRig HD-A And Amplitube For Android, But It's Only Available On The Note 4 And Note Edge Right Now

Guys, it's happening. It's really happening – a real guitar amp simulator is available on Android. IK Multimedia's Amplitube is one of the most popular amp sims on iOS, and the company has been working with Samsung to bring it to Android. But, of course, there's a catch: it's only for the Note 4 and Note Edge for now.

Apparently, Samsung found a way to virtually eliminate the audio-in latency issue that has plagued Android since the dawn of time – an issue that iOS never had.

The Verizon Galaxy Note 4 Developer Edition Is In Stock And Ready To Ship From Samsung For $700

Ah, Developer Editions, what would we do without you? Probably suck it up and buy the retail versions, since anyone who's actually in the market for a Developer Edition phone on Verizon doesn't have a choice of GSM carriers with unlocked phones. If you've been drooling over the Galaxy Note 4's high-end hardware but lamenting Verizon's locked bootloader policy, Samsung is ready to sell you an unlockable phone. That will be $699.99, please.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Review: It's Like A Note 3 And A Galaxy Alpha Had A Really Predictable Baby

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Review: It's Like A Note 3 And A Galaxy Alpha Had A Really Predictable Baby

When the Galaxy Note 3 was released one year ago, it marked a substantial step forward not just because it was new, but was arguably the big generational "tock" in Samsung's handset lifecycle. It had a brand-new bright, vivid (even accurate, in the right mode) 1080p Super AMOLED display, more modern design language that later influenced the Galaxy S5, excellent LTE support, a Snapdragon 800 (remember, the S4 had the lowly 600), an up-to-date 13MP camera, and launched with Android 4.3, which had been announced just around two months prior (even if KitKat did launch four weeks later on the Nexus 5).
