Hi folks,
Acoording to Sammobile which is a reliable source about Samsung phones, all the pictures and the video shown last days are from a prototype and it's NOT the real galaxy SIV.

"According to our insider who gave us the first info on the Octa-Core and the PHOLED screen this is not the real deal. This is just one of the prototypes flying around and we know there are a few flying around of those. He told us to trust him. We will know if he was right tonight!"

I agree with your point though, i get unlim all on orange for 51 (25) with my discount) and I can easily pickup ~10mb on HSPA in most areas, going up to 25-40mb on the 1800mhz spectrum in a strong LTE area, don't forget they do a bill credited tariff at 61 which offers 20gb of data. Unless your torrenting blu ray rips then using 110gb P/M alone is BS

There is only 1 network in the UK that offers 4G so they will have to make a non LTE version or they will lose alot of money in the UK

Very nice speeds but I have unlimited data on the Full Month package which allows me to switch on every and any data service provided by the Samsung Galaxy SIII & to also watch & stream youtube for as long as I like and when I like.

I checked my data usage last month and it was 110 GB mostly used for watching HD YouTube videos. The maximum data allowance on EE's 4G service is 8GB for something like £56 which is approximately £10 more than my unlimited data Full Month tariff. Using my HSDPA on my phone when using YouTube, the experience I have is once youtube has buffered a few seconds then it starts playing immediately, so I wait a few seconds and then HD content starts, or the video starts immediately if I choose anything lower than HD.

For this reason I don't see any valid reason for someone like me who uses youtube frequently to opt in for a service which is faster and may save me a few seconds in buffering each video but will be limited to 8GB per month, considering on my current tariff I am averaging 100 GB per month & also considering that a full HD video can use up more than 500 MB for per half hour of duration.

The ratio of speed versus unlimited data isn't comfortable for me and so I am happy to stay on Full Monty at this time.

It's nice to know this will be 4G ready but for me it's can;t really be much of a consideration in the UK yet. The amount of money that EE demands for 4G connectivity is a complete joke. Also on more than one occasion the speeds I've seen so far from trying it in shops and from my friends have sometimes been slower than what I've achieved on 3G. Ridiculous situation.

Since orange has become EE my data service is totaly useless, it shows I have H but hardly never loads any web pages or takes ages as if its actually G

4G is to expensive and you'll only end up using more data quicker as its quicker streaming.

just make sure the S4 has a decent build quality, if not im definitely not buying another samsung and I was a fan of samsung since the first Galaxy.

The S3 is a good phone but the build quality is ridiculous
