Samsung Galaxy S4 US price revealed, 16GB model to cost $579 - read the full textAt the official Galaxy S4 announcement in New York on Thursday, Samsung Mobile chief JK Shin mentioned the phone will hit store shelves at the end of April, but didn't say anything about the pricing. Well, the beans have been sort of unintentionally spilled by the company’s website in the terms...

I think that is a very good price and i think samsung is going to break records with this pricing. In my country the S3 sells for about the same price right now! I am very happy with the price......

The S4 polycarbonate IS premium material. Just because it doesn't look like one doesn't mean that it doesn't. I bet you don't know that polycarbonate can be 300x tougher than average plastic. Yes, 300 as in this-is-Sparta-300. It also has higher hardness scale and higher impact resistance than kevlar fiber. So, do your research people! Polycarbonate is the material used to make bullet-proof glass and pilot canopy of the f22 Raptor fighter jets. It's also temperature resistant and has flame-retardant properties. Now, if that's not premium, I don't know what is. Aluminum on the other hand, though looks and feels premium in the hand, aren't tougher than a coca-cola can (O, and that's what they use aluminum for right? As soda drink containers and food wraps). Ok then. I hope this helps clear things up about premium material.

Definitely going to cost over 600euro in Europe... Sadly I will not be able to buy it at such a price. Will have to settle with a Chinese brand which used MTK mt6589 and costs under 250euro.

extremely fast processor

for $579
with this competitive price i dont think people can argue abt trivial matrers such as design
good luck Samsung...
