Why do people care so much about build quality and design if the phone is going to be outdated in one year anyways?

For the last few months I already used almost all flagship phone so lemme give you a small review. In all of my set,xperia z display is the worst. Low contrast and its like color washed out. S4 is in 1st place and for some personal reason,lumia 920 took 2nd place instead of one. Even it is a ips lcd color is saturated like amoled. Whoever say whatever,s4 is the fastest of all of them( I still do not use s800 chipset). Its really 1st and fluid. 2nd is one and lumia 920. Battery no matter what other says, s4 is champion. Iphone 5 and lumia did come 2nd position. Worst is htc one. O my god, even my normal use with auto backlight on, it can bear only half day where s4 did manage till 10 pm means almost a day. External speaker, htc one boombox is exclusive. No one can beat beats audio. Worst is sony xperia z, their tiny loudspeaker is really tiny. Camerawise, s4 comes 1st position with almost every mode. Iphone did manage 2nd position even with its 8mp. Htc's si called ultrapixel camera is not so good in daylight trust me. The situation change when I try in low light. One comes 1st. 2nd lumia 920. Worst is xperia z. Whatever they say, they have huge problem with noise. In audio quality(3.5mm jack), no one can beat sony xperia z. It comes 1st. I am not talking abount spec like others like frequency response stereo cross twlk bla bla bla. I am talking about my personal experience. Sony tuned their audio chip and softwarw so good thwt I really did feel the difference between z and others. I tried with logitech multiple armature, I beats, shure and skullcandy titan. 2nd position is apple iphone 5. Sorry apple, if its not z, it would be you. Worst is lg opt8mus g pro. Not tuned, sound cracked. Its should not be in flagship model. Now about design and weight. After a long research, iphone 5 comes 1st. Apple really knows how to make mobile. One and s4 comes 2nd. Now u can tell me why s4? Even its plastic, it really looking great and also featherlike weight. Htc did a grest job with Outlook. Sometimes I only grab one and just navigate through phone. It is that much beautiful. Worst is 920. I my god. Its as much weight like a brick. I feel I live in 2000 or 2002. I want to go on but I think it is already feeling boring. Here is my last thought. I cant bring all of my phone at my workplace or I go outside. So most of the time I choose s4. Great battery life, 1st processor,nice audio output, great display(a bit washed out on direct sunlight but still ok). I really do not use any of its cool feature becsuse they are useless or just show off. Only ir port is good. And for me air view and air gesture. The short review is based on my personal thought. I do not judge phone by spec. For me, whichever fulfil my needs that is best for me. S4 did that.thanks.

WP is WORST OS ever... and Nokia is dead and outdate tech (slow in games and cpu score) with 3 MILLION unusable megapixels... who need this???
WE NEED N3 with 64GB storage and Snapdragon 800 chipset and 4500 battery... camera?... what is camera? who need camera???
and... N3 Samsung is THE BEST CHOICE ;)

I used to be a Nokia user
Bought my phone for 200$ (XM)
It was released on 2009 and since that day I didn't get any updates :)
Though that there's a noticeable bugs that needs to be fixed and i already reported Nokia
But they gave me their back
So I did the same thing ^^

> In reply to ben.affleck @ 2013-08-26 18:49 from Xut$ - click to readhmm lets see... samsung provides more features in there phones, they provide alot of useful things such as SDcard support and removable battery which is rare for other manufacturers. They also provide better software support, the phones normally offer the best specs, they provide phones for everyone, low, mid, high end, phablets, android cameras etc. They also provide dynamic super amoled HD, which most phones dont have. Samsung phones are also have more support from developers. Samsung also provides more accessories for their high end phones. It is known for samsung to have one of the best battery life, mostly according to gsmarena.

May I go on?

It....just like samsung pays google to use appstore....and no,amoled is still not as popular and well known as LCD,and new enhancements like triluminos,it will remain so for a long time....wifi-direct? n8 was able to use wifi direct by developers before s2 was even.announced and nwer lumia phones support wifi again what exactly does samsung has to differentiate it's phones.....

Whoever thinks that Samsung is not innovative they r just jeolous of them. Look at galaxy S4..its thousands time innovative than poor htc one and xperia Zu..the features which r available in S4 r not there in htc,sony,and apple.if u guys think that Samsung is unable to put the 16mp sensor on galaxy note 3 then u r wrong. Its their marketing strategy..look at their previous flagships. S2,S3,note 1,note2.they used the same camera lens and sensors on s2 and note 1.same goes to s3 and note2.and because of Samsung android is on top of the smartphone os list.not because of htc,sony,lg etc

See how GS4 is smaller that GS3, even with larger screen.

Tomorrow it could be some other brand.We are not zombies like you- we are FREE.

If somebody can't spell English, it doesn't mean that he is not right.
He was right. TouchWiz is already much better than and functional than pure Android. Period.
