If it's going to come only with x32 CPU, I will definitely pass this one. My Samsung i9100 is still quite enough for watching tv series and playing games, so I'm still waiting for next Android mobile which will be much stronger than my current device.

2. Design of S4 is same to almost all Samsung Galaxy phones due to which if someone have it, someone else may think it's some Galaxy Grand.
3. Samsung has been continously releasing too many variants of the same model which resulted in confusion and frustration for the general buyers. Every Samsung Galaxy phones has the same design and using the same design on a high end phone with pure or glossy plastic just makes the premuim feeling go away and releasing too many variants of the same model resulted into loss of faith for the brand Samsung.
4. Last but not the least the price was huge.
Hope in future Samsung understand these things."

1. I agree partially, The plastic was a small let down which is why i initially went with the HTC One but after a hardware failure and a Software failure on two seperate handsets i jumped to s4 honestly i had the money and could have bought any phone and i don't notice your "lack of premium"
2. This i agree with the s3 and s4 are practically visually identical which is a little bit of a cop out, but i am not that shallow as to make a point that mines a s4 not an s3.
3. This is a pet peeve of mine lately when released they had two s4's which not only confused some people but made some people self righteous with " you only got a quad core, mines got 8 cores, yeah ok buddy we get it despite the fact that only 4 can be used at any given time"
4. I completely disagree with this fact. Apple iphone at the time of release of the s4 was a good $250 more then the comparable s4 i.e. 16gb iphone to a 16gb s4 and the s4 had more features

You have no idea why Samsung choose to use plastic.

All apple iphone and ipad with metal body actually create danger to human life with the already potential current leakages each you charging them.

Another problem that apple iphone and ipad devices having was, the use of highly polished metal and extreme usage of chemical, in poisoned hundreds thousands of poor, stupid and extreme cheap paid Chinese workers.

If apple mobile devices is to manafactured in United States, not only it will banned due to high toxical chemical use, dangerously designed metal body that will failing all Hipot test. apple will also not able to sell a single devices with US workers blood sucking wage that resulted extreme high manufacturing cost and selling price.

So the actuall reason Samsung mobile devices uses plastic was due to,

1. Plastic body was Hundreds times electric safe than a metal body.

2. Easier in manufacturing, Green planet, environment friendly and safe to human without the need to use extreme toxical chemical.

3. With the saving from using plastic, in returned, Samsung manufactured all their mobile devices with much higher specification hardwares than any apple devices, including the much much higher price highly advanced Super AMOLED screen.

Poor and low cost apple devices still with old technology LCD screen. What a shame for an United States product by any standard.

Here are the reasons why Samsung Galaxy S4 sales were not as good as the company expected it to be:
1. The phone is made up of plastic and in premium segment, a customer would want a rough and tough phone which feels premium in hands for the premium paid for it. S4 lacked it.
2. Design of S4 is same to almost all Samsung Galaxy phones due to which if someone have it, someone else may think it's some Galaxy Grand.
3. Samsung has been continously releasing too many variants of the same model which resulted in confusion and frustration for the general buyers. Every Samsung Galaxy phones has the same design and using the same design on a high end phone with pure or glossy plastic just makes the premuim feeling go away and releasing too many variants of the same model resulted into loss of faith for the brand Samsung.
4. Last but not the least the price was huge.
Hope in future Samsung understand these things.

iphones havn't changed at all, sony phones look pretty much the same, htc one family - its a formula that works and it makes it obvious to consumers what the product is, what make and what product line its from... its called marketing...
