"Yota is, indeed, the first company in the world to launch an LTE Advanced network, but this has been essentially a PR operation. Eleven stations is just symbolical; big foreign operators like Japan’s NTT, South Korea’s SK Telecom or AT&T in the US have the capacity to launch networks at a much larger scale."

There's a difference between rolling something out as a test, as Yota did, with 11 base stations in Moscow, and rolling it out nation wide on your entire network, like SK Telecom will in September.

Meanwhile, where are Yota's plans/announcements on rolling LTE-Advanced network wide?

The real news here is SK Telcom in S. Korea is about to roll out LTE-Advance this year (1 year ahead the rest of the world) and the S4 will be the first phone to take advantage of LTE-Advance technology:

Amazing how uninformed some of you people are.

This actually translates to something like:
"We are doomed with the current S4 and it will be huge loss of money if we release a S5 right now, so we'll release an allegedly LTE-Advanced device, which by the way is nowhere to be found, but we`ll say its just for the LTE and not the Snapdragon 800 inside."

Until such time the performance of the Exynos is significantly better than the S600, I'd take the S600 due to better power management and battery life.

Yet the Apple fanboys will gladly pay a premium for iphones that lack features that other manufacturers have.

That's innovation!

You're killing me!

What is the use? it is getting old when LTE-Advance was implemented, and consumer are looking forward for the new one. Samsung, you beter concentrate to new body language design for your next flagship phones. Hints. .. back of sgs4 active and front of sgs4= Samsung Galaxy S V (pure black front panel. .
.. is sweet! !!)
