Take a good look again for yourself, no one is actually buying your opinions over here. Infact none of the reviewers opinionated that one is "way superior" than the other, except for yourself.

Durability? See for yourself in all the drop tests. If that aluminum was much durable than the plastic, then your point could be valid. I wonder if you also wear gold-plated shoes to show that you have expensive or premium stuffs :)

I would go for any other smartphones regardless of the manufacturer if they have a good overall phone (I've used Motorola Defy, Asus Padfone2 by the way). I've also used HTC devices in the past and so I'll ask you this, how's life without that quick toggle menu bar?

Afterall, it wasn't so hard to even identify a fanatic HTC fanboy like u over here after you revealed it yourself.

HTC ONE 'for me' is a far superior handset to the s4 purely through the wants and needs of what i want in a smartphone. your comment was fairly pathetic and i dont really see your motive except for the fact that you are probably one of these extremist fanboyz ive been referring too. And 'coke can aliminium' ... how about 'bottled water plastic'... look i can do it too! or actually here is a better one 'S4 plastic'. thats the cheap stuff. keep your opinions to yourself nobodys buying your sammy trash talk

Last quality problem I heard about from any phone manufacturer in the last year was about Apple and their iphone 5 and ios 6 when it first came out.

How do you explain that Samsung had already shipped and sold more S4's during the first 2 months of it's release than it did for the S3 for the same time period?

I think Samsung are spreading themselves too thin. They need to focus on quality of materials not spamming the market with multiple variants of the same phone.

I can foresee growth stalling and people getting bored and next year being be a terrible year for them
since the samsung is the great co.& i like it because of the smart phone & the great tenchlogy

Wait a month or 2 price will drop to around £400 mark, wonder if this also will not get any updates like the UK Simfree S4.

To your info, i tried it for almost an hour at a store and tell you what, it was laggy and there's some heating up issue as well as camera quality seemed poorer when compared to the international version of S4.
