I change my car every 1-2 years, not becuase I'm rich, in fact the opposite. Its because I gave to have shit lease/company cars which I don't actually own.
If I had the money I'd buy something good and keep it for years

samsung design phone to maintain weight & battery weight inside. so it will be easy to carry and hold.

What if I told you again, shipping is an easy way to import something not available in your region? And what if I told you once again, S4 Advance, not if available for every market is still a variant of S4?

Two of my Galaxy phones broke over a course of a year. Now if Samsung is going to use cheap parts, I doubt if it will ever last 6 months. Shame on Samsung. Cheap plastic making company. Samsung always copying other and calling it their own,cheating their customers, their phones killing people. Shame on this company.

S4 Advanced, is not for the global market.
It's only one upgrade per year for high-end Samsung devices. Galaxy S line and Note line

If Samsung could just take a year off of amoled and work on it to perfect it and use IPS displays like on LG phones, they would be perfect. To me, no other screen tech can compete with IPS.

> In reply to [deleted post]Well judging by his comment, I feel he doesn't own a Note II and he is a HTC fan but what we shouldn't forget how Sammy frustrated its early Galaxy S4 and Note users by throwing out variants one after another after another. The early buyers were almost fed up. I have seen two my friends. One own the international version of S4 while other one got active. Both were arguing about it's the best one but when Samsung announced the Advanced S4, they were like this is crazy. Both of them are students and are hardworking persons who saved money for a better device which they later found wasn't worth it because there is already a better variant of S4.

One said, if he could have just saved money for 2 months, he could get the advanced version of S4. I feel bad for them. Sammy shouldn't done this. At-least, if it's going to announce different variants. Make sure to announce them at the time of the official launch of a device and the later on variants if should be announced, shouldn't be termed as the same device.

Those who got money and bought the first Variant thinking it's the best variant of Note III later found it's not worth buying because Sammy threw another variant of Note III which is advanced because some other brand thrown a "single device" of that spec and sammy as always wanted to be the first one to threw out the most recent mobile tech. Won't the customers be frustrated like in the case of Galaxy S4?

I like Sammy fanboys but people like you and your thoughts are damn funny.
