Anonymous, 08 Jul 2013Why does every Samsung advertisement compare the Galaxy to the iPhone? Apple never mentions S... moreBecause Apple is Samsung's biggest enemy after all the lawsuits. But these days Apple is no longer an innovator because all they do is play catch up. Samsung doesn't need to be Apple because they are already successful in their own.
Specs wise, Sony ang HTC are still both inferior to Samsung. I don't care of a plastic build as long as the guts are awesome rather than the premium looking show off that easily chips and bends- the reason Samsung does not want to use Aluminum. Sooner Samsung phones will be using carbon fiber that will make it even an irresistible and compeling gadget.
Well that if that isn't a "soap-bar" like the iFans say about the S4 then I don't know what is. Actually it look like a Domino.
cdnj, 07 Jul 2013Most of the Apple fanboys don't like the idea of a budget iphone as it will certainly tarnish ... moreIronically.. The picture shows cheap china made android phone.. and not iPhone itself.
Proved android is still the underdog for cheaters and imitators.
Even samsung CEO/fanboys is insecure about their own products and constantly bash apple products.
The Hero, 07 Jul 2013isn't it a windows phone Lumia? it has same design. omg apple, Innovation !!!! This is not an Apple phone. You can make that comment when and IF Apple ever releases another iPhone. And that's all gossip at the moment.
All we know so far is apple releases an updated phone every year around September - October. That's all you know so far.
cdnj, 07 Jul 2013Most of the Apple fanboys don't like the idea of a budget iphone as it will certainly tarnish ... more1) Here nothing comes. There is no such thing as a new budget plastic iphone. Apple hasn't said so and until they announce one, it is all Internet gossip fake phones.
2) iPhone users had plastic up until the iPhone 3GS. So don't know what you're talking about "swallowing pride".
My wife has a 3Gs. The back shell is plastic. Hold a plastic Samsung in your hand and a 3Gs in your hand and feel the quality.
I don't think reviewers are knocking the plastic, they're complaining about it FEELING cheap. The iPhone 3GS was plastic and didn't feel cheap at all.
And same goes for the Lumias. Polycarbonate. They feel premium. Samsung feels cheap. That's all.

Samsung wants to be what Apple is, and really tries to brainwash everyone into thinking that they are.
If you want an android phone, why not get something that looks nice like Sony or even HTC phones. Sammy's Galaxies all made with the same cheap plastic and same boring design.
Its sad how alot of ppl here in the awesome GSM ARENA are HATERS ,i hav Both S4(sammy) and i5(apple),both GIANTS i LOVE...pros and cons on both GIANTS yes..and still i don understand why some HATIN IMMATURE so called geek bastards here makin unnecessary comments..again people enjoy wat(cellphone) u hav for wats its worth and stop talkin crap bwt wat u don hav..
Rustam Bajwa, 07 Jul 2013I am user of iPhone , I have iPhone 5 and iPhone 4 , I think there is no need of budget iPhone... morewell most people think that there's not even a need for iPhone itself. what the iPhone can do, the android flagships can do much much better.
isn't it a windows phone Lumia? it has same design. omg apple, Innovation !!!!
it makes me laugh when Samsung use plastic it's just cheap plastic , when apple use plastic it's a special kind of plastic , plastic is plastic . i will be getting one of these iplastic
that was just a ipod touch ,that fake picture of apple, when you don't have a money for iphone you can buy a ipod touch.
funnyfanboys, 07 Jul 2013android notification is stolen from iphone SB settings(jailbreak setting)It is their in Android from the earliest of versions
And wow we need to jailbreak a phone to get a notification bar thats amazing
Most of the Apple fanboys don't like the idea of a budget iphone as it will certainly tarnish iphone's prestige image. But here it comes. Over the years they ridiculed Samsung's plastic build but now they swallowed their pride HAHA!
Apple has been knocked off it's pedestal by Samsung quite a while now and all they do is catch up to the competition. Their boring outdated UI was replaced with IOS 7- an obvious Android copycat. But I'm sure Apple fanboys will still be blind and will still buy anything Apple despite its shortcomings.
I think the "cheaper iPhone" will somewhat look like the iPod Touch. :)
