Looks like Samsung doesn't make phones for plastic haters.
My question is how many in the world have this disability called "plastic phobia" ?
Dude if you are a "plasticophob" just go consult a medic he will take further action and give you some pills and even investigate if you suffer from other diseases. He might even recommend you to buy an Galaxy S4 that will help you cure your disease just by confronting your biggest fears, and after you'll buy an S4 you sure will start to love plastic and the S4 of course.
Talking about your illnesses or phobias all over the internet sure won't make you sane and others might think you are really insane. lol

People plastic was used in the Nokia 1100 . Why take metal phones as an innovation are u people stupid. And the Xperia z is the ugliest phone. The aspects about the phones make people bias towards the main contenders. Htc one is a stunning phone that's obvious but nothing to special that u people are crazed over that they innovated. Really.

Htc does not engineer anything in a phone. Sony only makea the camera module. Chinese brands lol total repackagers. At least apple males the software.

Microsoft going to abandon the mobile windows OS if Nokia fail to show no sign of selling volumes of hand sets. A second fail attempt for Microsoft !

Then company choose wrong business, because sales are going down. If you want quality, there is different and more expensive phones. HTC never was based on quality. If they can't sale a lot of phones it does not mean that they are based on quality :)

I don't know whether this is true or not, but according to the UK's PHONES 4U,
They say they will be offering both versions of the Samsung Galaxy S4...
I think that means both the 19505 and the 19500..
Correct me if, i'm wrong.

What do you mean - ugly... plastic ?

If you hate plastic so much, then why most of you using plastic covers of your phones?
Ugly - we have different tastes. Most of you, haters, said that S3 also was ugly, but it was one of the most successful phones on market. Like iPhones.

The Samsung GS4 is by far the UGLIEST phone in the market right now. Compared to Xperia Z and HTC ONE or the iphone 5S when it comes out.

Samsung will be lucky to sustain its current lead. Analysts are ALWAYS WRONG BTW...

Samsung should have tried to push innovations this year instead of doing the same crap it did back in 2012

Its not fair because the 24% in 2012 Nokia's profits are coming from Dumb phones, while Samsung making these profits from Smartphones.
From this 24% maybe 1% are Lumias although in my dictionary Lumias are not smartphones too.

Samsung doesn't need the Galaxy S4,
To double its market share it'll do that with the plethora of other smartphones anyway.
