A really great offering indeed. But, I'm actually waiting for Note the 3rd. It's gonna be even greater, in every aspect, and I have a thing for big portable screen and wacom digitizer.

SGS4, the most revolutionary and cutting edge smartphone in 2013 but priced lower than Sony Xperia Z or ZL.

Sony, you better set your price correctly.

Im not a samsung fan. In fact, I go with whoever has best camera and have gotten hooked to offline gps and fm transmitter. But this is exciting stuff and really great price. I dont curse the competition, I encourage it because forces innovation. In the end consumers win with more options. Well done samsung

The SGS4 screen (441 ppi) vs. iP5 retina display(326 ppi). That being said SGS4 has a "real" retina display.

I have never seen such a stupid person, It's called retina because it has a very high pixel density (PPI/DPI) of 326 (326 pixels per square inch). The galaxy S IV together with other 1080p phones has a density of 441 PPI. That's way better than your retina display.

Wow so cheap! On my country the cheapest iphone 5 is around US$849, sony xperia z $799, bb z10 $749. If samsung s4 come with only $599-$649 i have to admit samsung s4 will rule again cause so much cheaper than competitor.

The only advantage of the iPhone 5 is its design, in all other categories even the Sony Xperia T (let alone Galaxy S4) kills it.
