Samsung Galaxy S4 UK pre-orders start, US to follow on April 16 - read the full textThe Samsung Galaxy S4 (both the I9505 and I9500) can be pre-ordered in the UK starting today, with shipments expected to begin on Friday, April 26. You can get the Galaxy S4 with pretty much every carrier in the UK as well as contract-free from Amazon and Carphone Warehouse. Off-contract the...

It would be more like this:

£25 (One Plan) x 24 (months) + £570 = £1770 (though the average price of the phone sim-free is gonna more likely cost £600 - at least for first 3-4 months before price reductions take place)


£37 per month for two years is by far much more worthwhile.

Most people if they were getting sim-only plan, wouldn't go for the highest price tariff though I know you are trying to compare apples with apples in term of the minutes/data/sms between the plans.

Most likely the average person will go for £15.90 per month sim-only so will be:

£15.90 (Ultimate Internet SIM 600 12 months) x 24 (months) + £600 = £981.60

Now the above looks more appealing to users looking to buy a sim-free S4

i had the s3 and i didnt see any burn.
as for it being made out of plastic most phones are and
even the Htc one has plastic. so what all of sudden people
are starting to think that Metal is some new form of material
it has been around since the creation of the world.

And yes the Htc one is very beautiful but until
Htc show me that they will support a phone.
And that they will finally put a battery in a phone that will
last out the day (and yes i have had 4 Htc products)
i will not buy another one although i am tempted

It will surely lag while switching. Snapdragon 600 could do 60% of the job.

When the phone released we will see and I'm sure it will be the best and i have S III for nearly a year now no burn in display, no lag and I'm sure SIV will be the best phone of the year like S III.

My opinion

1080p AMOLED will show some burn ins.
Phone size very big.
Plastic build not good.
Switching between cores makes the phone lag.

Three is the best deal, even competes with the SIM Free option...

£25 (One Plan) x 12 (months) + £570 = £870

£37 (One Plan) x 24 (months) = £888

Paint on Aluminum body can easily be peeled off with one scratch, while Plastic is integrated with the color so if it scratched will still give you the same original color while Aluminum will show an ugly gray color.

BTW there is plastic bullet proof and plastic is elastic you can bend it while your soda cans can't.

Plastic is lighter and thinner, and doesn't conduct electricity so there is 0% of getting electrified while charging your phone.
Plastic doesn't interfere with antenna so less drop calls and better signal and less damage for your brain and less precancerous.

And enjoy you dented scratched soda cans after one month of regular usage.

operators are just ripping people off.. sim free is £530 NOT £630 for a start. only 3 are great value at £35 with a free S4... they will get loads of new customers unless the others so ripping us off!
