Dot-WiFi, 21 Mar 2014the best joke in marchYou looking like a big joker in this comment section .
Just wait for only 3 months and the price will drop approximately 100$ . this is a bonus for me to get any Samsung device.
This is the best smartphone money can buy right now! You guys need to realise this and start giving all your money to samsung now. They have made the phone of our dreams!

Like with Z1 Compact, people been swaering at Sony due to the high preorder prices but it turned out that the thing is actually very cheap indeed. Same with S5 in Romania i would think.
Well of course, the thing look so cheap anyway right. If only Samsung didnt use the similar designs on low end and midrange models it would be all good but when the flagship both looks and feel like an oversized S3 Mini something have to give in, and the price is the only way to do it. The fact that Z2 is superior in almost every way is another thing, for sure i would not try to save $100 by getting a bandaid phone instead of a worthy flagship.
Finally, region locking, and the risk of future software updates bricking the device thanks to this. It should actually COST $100 then, would suck to have to travel from lets say Cambodia to Europe just to make a 10 minute call to unlock the device for cambodian SIM cards and then fly back again. Real life doesnt work so well that way mr "life companion".
Phones which already have custom roms available are good to buy so i am not an early adopter.
In Romania the S5 flagship is overpriced ~ 720Eur! Is 150-200E more than S4 launch price and that is much . Samsung is overwhelmed by Apple pricing so did the same !
mosiii, 20 Mar 2014you think a plastic and low quality phone must be same by a full metal and super quality phone You just compare the production cost of iPhone 5s snd s4 .polycarbonate is far better than your crap aluminium soda can .Repairable score is too low for htc one.
CAdvisor, 20 Mar 2014Yo HTC, look out .. learn from your father how to set up price charts ! you think a plastic and low quality phone must be same by a full metal and super quality phone
S4 is crappier phone, many are highly disappointed with its battery life and performance. And Samsung is just pricing the phones and its tablet price very high in India. Hope they reduce price in India, else It's better to go for Nexus or Motorola, at least i would get regular updates.
Kind of worried after knowing htc one gonna have a 16mp camera :D
Nope. It's probably just a marketing gimmick to fool people into saving money and preparing to buy it. When the moment of it's availabilty arrives, the price would be 200 US dollars more expensive. It's a cheap marketing trick.
...u know what - the idea of a waterproof blue band-aid is actually growing on me. Maybe it's the fingerprint button. I wasn't that impressed when it was first unveiled but it's actually starting to grow on me. Weird. I know I'm not going to be that fused about the new HTC for the same reasons I wasn't with the original HTC One.
What can I say - I'm a practical person (& I hate phone cases!)
