Lol at Samsung 'innovation'. Wonder how Android feels now that they even copycat existing technologies and market it as their own. Also, don't people prefer better materials than cheap plastic for €700?

eyetracking just doesnt adds up for 700euros.
i have an idea that is way more practical than
eyetracking. they could of made the phone completely super hydrophobic or rethink their touchwiz with has very static icons..its anoying how static they are...well the touchwiz thing is just a personal taste so..
Sony Xperia Z and HTC one doesnt have an old desing.
they have an classic(classic doesn't always mean old) desing with little details that make the phones look modern.
i dont want to defend the competition of S4, i will never go with a phone bigger than 4.3inch screen.
i will soon buy an Nokia N9.
Miike Hunt, 17 Mar 2013Probably be about £350 when I buy it (I'm waiting for LTE coverage).the uk version will have LTE support at launch on EE, it will also support "ultrafast" which is Three uk high speed 3.5G, average speeds of 7-10Mb. unlocked it will no doubt be around the £499-529 range

Air gestures, air view. You can't deny that you are not innovating.
What does htc and iphone bring? better design quality? that's it? that's not innovation. The iphone has the same design for the last 4 years.
At least samsung offers choice for removable battery and micro sd card.
Just look at this picture, design wise it says a lot
HTC one and xperia look old next to the s4
That's a difference of €599-$579 = €150 = $200 between the EU and US version. A lot. And a US version imported to the EU likely doesn't support EU LTE frequencies. Samsung should use the Krait/Adreno combo instead of Exynos/PowerVR also in the EU to get a lower price as in the US.
TED HUNTER, 17 Mar 2013PRICES in european union are always HIGHER than usa for almost everything DUE TO sleay greedy ... moreThey are also higher because on Europe, the the average wealth of people is considerably higher than that of someone on the USA
lets say someone on Europe makes by average 30% more than someone from USA, on perspective, they have 30% more money to spend on electronics, therefore it seems logical for a company like samsung to increase the price on their products for Europeans, because they will still buy them and they'll get more money, after all they are a company
i remmember a time when samsung would sell stronger and faster phones at almost two thirds of the price of the iphone with was weaker...
they ask 700euros for a cheap-feeling peace of plastic with briliant hardware...
samsung is not inovating anymore. not even its design with is one of the simplest things to do.
samsung will not be the hottest thing in town if they do not change this strategy fast. best case scenario is that samsung will stagnate(with would be an impressive thing to do considering their android market-share) in the next 2 years.
it happened before: nokia, iphone, motorola, sony ericsson...

Amazon germany has the best prices. I live in another country but i buy from amazon germany, they ship to all european countries.
here in Scandenavia it's cheaper than both HTC one and Sony Experia Z! that's one of the reasons Samsung sells more, even though they provide top-notch hardware (and lately some software innovations as well)!
