"We are not going to get into an argument whether those prices are fair or not. If there are so many people out there ready to pay them, we can't blame the manufacturers for asking them."

Air View is nothing but Knockoff of Air Play
Eye tracking is a 'App' can be found in google play
So no innovation by Samsung. i guess you are living in a cave,boy. And many other 'fanboys' who don't understand tech.
Samsung S4 is not a cool looking mobile. Xperia Z and HTC ONE is,even S2 look bad ass.

That's quite expensive. The Xperia Z and HTC One is cheaper compare to this. Even the Xperia ZL is inexpensive.

But knowing Samsung, I'm sure the price will go down in some months.

It is always better, and a more "fair" price, to buy last years flagship, so I will buy S4 next year!

"You can do those things with iPhones if you look hard enough"

And how hard do i have to look, cause ive tried i try all phones because im not a fanboy. iphone is a very smooth and does not need power like android for smoothness,that being said its looks much the same as it did 4 years ago. I give them one thing they changed ther design to more durable body . reason why i left sammy and went to sony . but in terms of freedom i am free on andriod to do as i please and i like my freedom would not have it any other way. can you even set a song as a ringtone. i am not all about android if another os can bring what i need i would leave just as fast. but the iphone is outdated . i will always love them to prove me wrong .

Im not convinced. Saw first time video review on the phone.. It lags .. Not going to commit until there is a demo in stores.

If it'll gonna release with such a hefty price tag, then i must say, i'll not going to buy it. if anyone could explain that price in Europe is always higher then compare to other continents? i'll buy it if it's maximum 650$, 650£ is too much, even iphone is not as expensive as this..this price shows like this phone's built with gold, comm'on're using very low price materials in your phones, why are you asking a price of high-quality materials?

The price is quite fair. I wouldn't mind paying a couple of hundred bucks more.

However, many folks will probably be repelled by the same boring design, tho the beast lies inside! As 4 me, I'm not buying another smartphone till they go flexible n at least 64 bit (Cortex A50 series) ! Also, water/dustproofing is a big imperative!Galaxy S5/S6 maybe! Also, it's hi-time v started havin phones with 128GB internal memory as Samsung has already started producing 'em last year! It's shocking v still don't get too many 64GB phones, it's 2013 n with d future full of 4k and 8k UHD content, we'll soon be needing TB storage in phones!

Don't stress people.

Prices of new phones always start a little higher then quickly drop. If you want the SGS4 on day 1 then pay a bit more, other wise wait a few weeks and it will drop a couple of hundred... it happened on the S, S2,S3, Note, Note 2 etc etc

ps anyone who buys outright from a telco is silly, there are a lot better deals online.

But IMO itunes is in a way like kies. Most people want to retain their phone details easily (contacts/sms/etc..) So when you get s4, you carry your s3 life over.

That said, its an option, not forced. You can use iPhone just well as S4 both without using Kies or iTunes.. You just lose the backup sync.

Wow, Samsung doing the Apple way, 700 euros !!

They gonna have even more profit margin on that product than Apple have with their iPhones has the S4 is mainly a full in-house product ... 700 euros the non premium built smartphone !
Congrats Samsung !!

Meanwhile, it's better looking than the S3 and that was not so difficult to achieve...
