Hundreds line up to grab the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, with 4 lucky winners receiving theirs for free

Hundreds of people lined up outside the SM Mall of Asia Atrium last October 25 to be among the first to own the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the most awaited innovation of the leading smartphone brand this year.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Virtual Line Winners

Among the hundreds who joined the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 launch at the SM Mall of Asia Atrium were Jessie Bulan, Andre Raymundo, Rodolfo Torres Jr., and Ronald Guanzon, the lucky four participants who reserved online for the Note 4 via the Samsung Galaxy Virtual Line. By creatively answering “What surprising feature of the Galaxy Note 4 do you like the most?” and posting it on their social media accounts, Bulan, Raymundo, Torres and Guanzon were able to take home their new Note 4 for free.

The Galaxy Note 4 Virtual Line, an online reservation promo, gave those who pre-ordered the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 a chance to win special discounts and prizes on the date of purchase. Participants logged on to, answered the official contest question and posted it on their registered social media accounts.

To earn points to win, the posts must get as many likes, shares, and comments. The top 100 registered scorers based on social media posts and screening of content were announced on and received special prizes upon purchase of their new Galaxy Note 4 while each of the top four participants who got the highest points received a new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 for free. Furthermore, those who fell in line got an additional PHP 4,000 discount if they bought their device between 10am-12nn on October 25.

Bulan, who signed up for the Virtual Line Promo on October 13, two days after the announcement on Samsung’s Facebook page, said “I am so proud to own one of the most sought after smartphones in the market. I feel so excited!”

Most of those in line, including Raymundo, were Samsung advocates. “I have been a Samsung fan since the pre-smartphone days. I had the first Galaxy S phone and both the first two Notes,” he said.

Not surprisingly, advocates and first-time Samsung users lined up for the Galaxy Note 4’s plethora of superior features. Among these features is the Enhanced S-Pen with improved touch and feel experience. Torres shared his delight. “I really enjoy the new S Pen. The Note is a really important tool for my life as a businessman. I am constantly online and the S Pen helps me manage my calendar, notes, and documents daily. As a travel photographer, I also do post-processing of my photos using the Note and the S Pen. It has become fun and easier to do photo edits using the S Pen.”

Other features of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 are the QHD Super Amoled Screen, Ultra Power Saving (UPS), and two improved cameras. The Note 4’s QHD Super Amoled Screen has a pixel density of over 500ppi and delivers better clarity and readability with pixel-for-pixel accuracy. The Galaxy Note 4 comes with UPS, which allows for a long battery life. To top it all, the Note 4 comes with a 16MP rear camera that has brighter lens for more visible captures, while its 3.7MP front-facing camera has a wide angle feature to fit more surroundings for the popular wide selfies.

With these features, users are now looking forward to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 experience. “The new Note 4 gives a lot of new surprises each day. I will always be amazed with my techie venture with the new Note 4,” Bulan expressed.

The newest addition to Samsung’s premier smartphone line-up, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, is now available at all authorized Samsung stores nationwide including Samsung SM Mall of Asia and Samsung SM Aura.
