I have the gear vr, its the only reason I got the note 4 after switching from apple, I'm so glad I have the note 4 now instead of apple, man they are a boring phone now looking back! Anyhow I showed my friends the gear vr, now they all want a note 4 as well! A lot of them are switching from apple now as well! This device and the gear vr has blown my mind! Its so amazing, in fact I'm gonna go put it on now and play a new game I got, I'm out

Samsung not Release Loliipop Update till The Samsung Galaxy S6 Get Released,People of N4 users Sold their devices and Looking for S6.


Screw gear vr seriously... android is hardly a gaming powerhouse... If I wanted VR i wouldn't waste it on a mobile device . I would use a top of the range gaming PC.

How many people does Samsung think own a VR?! Seriously, just for that reason?? Hope Samsung would stop keeping us waiting while others already sucking on their lollipops

What kind of madness is this? What percentage of Note 4 buyers do you think bought the Gear VR device? 1%? 5%, maybe?? To hold up the Lollipop update just for that is idiotic.

This is why SHAMESUNG is loosing out to it's competition and it does not deserve to be in number 1 spot.

Lol the drama of some people here when software updates for flagships used to be half a year at the soonest. Lollipop has some nice changes but not that Kitkat is so unbearable that you need to upgrade at once or downgrade to avoid it. And it's a Note 4, what exactly are the alternatives if you bought it for the pen?

Just bring this update ASAP Samsung! There's no more excuses, we've spent our hard earned money for your flagship and we deserve timely updates. I've been waiting 2 months for this and I could care less for Gear VR.

I have the VR, also. It's amazing. Everyone I showed it too wants one. I hope they don't release the update without compatibility with the VR. I didn't spent $200 for nothing. I don't think Samsung would want to deal with the bad publicity it would get and the refunds either.
