Wow, if thats a problem on ALL Note 4's thats a big problem. Dust, water, crud can get through that space. Feel bad for any person buying a Note 4 that has this issue...just never fun to buy a new device that has issues.

This will never make the major media outlets. Why? Because Samsung users have low expectations and standards.

Us Apple users have gotten used to the attention to detail and build quality of our devices, to the point that we forget just how bad it can be elsewhere.

If being able to bend a phone when applying all our strength is our only complaint, I think we're doing pretty damn well.

if I had a $20 bill for every time I've seen someone with a dead Micro-USB charging part, I'd be retiring soon.

Samsung is fully aware of this issue, it has only effected a limited number of devices and Samsung only had 30,000 units produced in this lot...it will be fixed before it gets to United States

Can you guys read? These are the first units that have this issue. Samsung is fully aware. The U.S. units will not have this issue, Samsung cannot take a massive media backlash due to already decreasing profits so this won't occur in the U.S.

Fully aware? Don't think so.

There's no official comment from Samsung regarding the mishap of the number of affected Galaxy Note 4 customers.

How did you fix it?
The devices at bestbuy do not have this issue, Korea received a rushed shipment which could be the reason for the defect...due to the many envious fans of Apple due to there bentgate issue, they are trying to make it bigger than what it is. This device won't be in the U.S. for over 2 weeks.....

Nothing new here. My Samsung Galaxy S3 that I've had for over two years has a big dust/crud attracting gap along the bottom of the phone. I even returned my first S3 for it, and the one that I got as a replacement was a bit better, but the gap still was there. Instead of playing the return for a perfect one game, I threw a case on it and haven't though about it since. In fact I'd forgotten about it until I saw this thread. I took the case off and yea, the gap is filled with dust, lint, and unidentifiable crap.

It's a shame to see that Samsung still has this issue.

Meh I'd rather have a gap than a bendy phone. I thought it was slightly blown out of proportion but after watching the unbox therapy video its ridiculous how easy it is the bend the 6+.

Please, the term ...gate is reserved for Apple only. How many Note 4 can Samsung sell to deserve worldwide attention like Apple?

Well, it doesn't bend at least. So you can defenitely get a warranty without having its (mis)use questioned by the warranty guys.

The card holder feature is undervalued in todays society. Samsung is on to something that is real jeanious and I don't see consumer reports saving them from this.
