Re: Will the Note 5 or edge + be blue tick rated?

Hi there melloncollie, I think that I could confidently say at this stage, I wouldn't think they would be blue tooth.

 

BUT, that is based on the fact that the current Note and S range from Samsung haven't made the cut for Blue tick.

 

I'm sure if they had pased the lab tests at Telstra, where they would have been put through their paces, the blue tick would have already been flown high on Telstra's advertising and pre order material for the devices.

We don't have information on the blue tick status of either one yet melloncollie I'm sorry.

 

Jeff's position is probably fair, when a flagship phone comes out and meets bluetick, a song and dance does tend to get made.

Hello Melloncollie

As the proud owner of a Note 4 Edge, and a Note 3,  the reception is excellent. Have no worries.

 Whilst the Blue Tick "system" is good, it is largely theoretical for the reasons below, in summary that individual phones can vary  in signal strength, and receive/transmit capability, due to production & part variances.  I wouldn't be too fussed about it.   If there is no mobile signal, no phone will successfully process a phone.  All well known brands are well designed and built to a very good standard.    From experience at 2 manufacturers, individual production can often  slightly vary,   (due to production processes and individual components, all within specification there is some variance)........... to the degree that a really good non blue-tick can occasionally/sometimes  be better than a slightly below average  blue tick,  just due to a combination of critical mass produced parts.

 

So, take it from me, most manufacturers very carefully run their pre-production network testing samples through a HP tester several times to ensure the networks only get the best of the best.

I think the only way to allocate a blue tick, is to sample actual delivery production stock from several different batches.

Also, some manufacturers use more than one 3rd party manufacturer to build identically sold products, and again there can be variance.    So, these tests are usually done is a specially manufactured shielded room to emulate really poor conditions.    Even the angle and size of hand can make substantial variances to phone reception, let alone metal rings and wrist jewellery, especially due to inbuilt antennae.

 

Thus, I would not be too fussed about a blue tick status, as the variances in actual production can have more effect than testing one or two hand picked models presented to the various networks.

 I would be more concerned that if the battery fails, you can't simply change it yourself or the lack of SD card, but again that is subjective.   If I was facing a non removable battery phone, I would be looking at an iPhone because of their on the spot high level of customer repairs at a moments notice at any Apple retail shop.

............ Whatever you buy, you will enjoy it, and I love Samsungs (until you need on-the-spot  quick repairs !!!).

Hope this insight relaxes you about this.  At the end of the day, Samsung Notes are great.

 

A "Like" is always appreciated. If my advice is a solution, please mark it. I'm not a Telstra employee.

Large town in Tasmania, right on the water and Note 4 Edge is next best thing to useless. I've had it 3 weeks and will go back to my S5 or get a Note 3 which is Blue Tick.
