This is the best phone in the market.HTC ,Sony ,LG and many Chinese branded smartphones are enough to compete with it .Difference among them is narrow but I like it best because hardware,software and innovative features are included in S4. I love mostly SUPER AMOLED screen and wow 441 ppi density that looks so nice in even normal lcd screen and don't ask in SUPER AMOLED screen how stunning it is.

I bought two more covers flip type and back cover with slot to insert coin. Shit all of this adds considerable weight so I didn't use it anymore. I want my device be sleek and thin as possible.

I currently have the s3 and it doesn't have a cover at all. What's the point on having a cover for a phone. We all replace it within a year or so. I always get ghost shield and that's it.

The point is you were talking solely about the S4 and the amount of units they were predicted to sell against, Sonys small amount, dont start playing smart now.
And the point is iphone DOES sell ALOTTTT... and im sure you still would call it sales premium. but because the S4 may sell alot, it is not premium. Your reasoning is skewed.
People howling about plastics are going to buy a plastic cover for their phones. And more importantly, itís polycarbonate. Nevertheless some people will not understand the fact that there is a reason for Samsung to choose this material. If Samsung would have chosen aluminum with non-removable battery, then people would still have criticized Samsung for not supplying a non-removable battery and a micro SD Card slot. If Samsung would have chosen LCD screen over AMOLED then there will be more people complaining about the LCD screens. FYI: Polycarbonates are more expensive to produce than aluminum and LEDís are pricier than LCDs. So we do get the opportunity of getting a wholesome magnificence over cheaper materials. I do concur with the actuality that the design is a little outmoded by now and HTC has come up with something really outstanding with HTC Oneís design, but people also look for performance. This is not to say that HTC One is a bad performer, but Samsung Galaxy S4 is better in that segment. If only SGS4 would have had a better design, it could have stormed the gate of success without any barriers. Nonetheless, it still has its own benefit if you look at the other side over HTC One. You get a removable battery, micro SD card slot, some good amount of customization over the stock Android, useful software tricks and many more. SGS4ís only competition at this point is HTC one because youíre not going to take your phone for swimming everyday or youíre not going to text confidently while having a shower. SGS4 wins in many situations from H1 in real world; so at the end itís only a matter of personal preference. You can choose Design over performance or a hardcore droid over a good looking phone.

Not a very reliable device except waterproofing.
Think again. Samsung actually have a much lower percentage of returns against sales than sony have. Sony reliability is not an issue. Sony do make great products but samsung are better devices overall.
botbot, 19 Apr 2013all premiums come in limited quantity. they are not mass produced.You make no sense what so ever...
So by your reasoning then, Apple iPhone is not premium, because it sells a whole hell of alot
