Samsung... don't forget the stupid Radio FM module that you removed from the devices ... S4 doesn't have the RadioFM hardware module, but it has temperature sensor

I prefer the advantages of plastic phones. Does not mean I have never enjoyed a metal clad phone here or there.
And the point of the Active is to show that metal or water proof phones Samsung still makes them with removable back and SD slot.

Yes plastic is almost more practical and durable in most ways.
But there are still preferences. Yes many more people like plastic than the trolls would like you to believe, but some do like metal. And Samsung has made metal phones with removable back and SD slot. Even the S4 Active is plastic and water proof, but still removable battery.

You iboys have really slow and lazy brains. Even if you read slowly. And there is nothing strange with that. We know you well.

Here to help:

"He" means that Note 3 , even with larger display is smaller thinner and lighter than Note 2 and Note 1.

(And even all of them compare with only 4.5" Lumia 920)

Now I will just quote your comment , and you guess what was my answer:

"Also when you said that samsung's cheap plastic phones cost more to make than the metal iphones, it can be alot of factors as well. maybe simply Samsung doesn't know where to buy good and cheap plastics."

This "my friend's S4", "my wife's Note", "my brother's whatever".....iTrick are already so dated and lame.
You underestimate our intelligence.

Can you think to invent some new iTrick-manipulation?

"Samsung made metal phone last year for Japan market, and it's much cheaper than S4."

This statement of your i have a big problem with, simiply shows how silly to just judge something because it was sold cheaper. A phone sold cheaper does not mean a phone was made cheaper... There are many factors involved in selling it at a certain price.

Also when you said that samsung's cheap plastic phones cost more to make than the metal iphones, it can be alot of factors as well. maybe simply Samsung doesn't know where to buy good and cheap plastics. It can be that simple. So just don't google and paste it here thinking you are so cool. you need to BE COOL because certainly you are not my dear.

I know how bad the battery is... with all those air gestures, eye stroll, silly gimmicks turned OFF. So don't you even try to put that "good battery" thing in there.

"Having owned the Note 2 and Note 3 y... also, the device is actually smaller, thinner and lighter with a bigger, better screen."

When you have a 5.7" screen how can the device be actually smaller and thinner? You are all screwed up i tell you. If you say it remains thin, then of course because all parts are spread out behind that large screen!. I have no idea what you mean by smaller tho. this just shows you should really go back to Nokia
