It's just a cheap copy of its American and Korean counterparts, I don't trust Chinese companies at all

I just miss small cell phones from the old days , they were different and each phone had a unique design , but phones these days are becoming more and more large and boring , you can't even tell most of them apart from a distance .

If Samsung does make S4 dust and water proof, no doubt they charge at least $100 more than what Huawei will charge (that's on top of the $100 more S4 will be above this anyways) and probably cost more than Sony's as well!

> In reply to Regulus @ 2013-01-15 05:07 from QwEF - click to readLTE !? U have right that's sad.. NFC !!?? Do you use it??? Tv-out!? Do you use it? Sdcard!!?? 32GB are not enough for you ?? Battery non-removable .!? Maybe not so good idea but for 3000mah is good enough I think ... Watch if the phone is good for your needs not what other phones more have and this not... I like this and with a price less than 420 I will buy it :)

From what I can see, it has no LTE, no SD-Card slot, no NFC, no TV-out, average camera, and a non-removable battery. Could be a tough sell for them.

Wow, this is a first for a touch screen. That's probably what Magic Touch is all about... :)

all of your guys complaining about the this phone's similarity in design with the other phones. what should any other phone should look like, in a round, triangle or in a star shape? you have issues on copying. we all know that is what makes the competition tighter so they have to contest more on the software features. well i believe that what matters most here is your personal experience with the phone and not with its perfection (though no device is)

well, i like the phone. so to speak, from 4.0 to 4.3, i am very excited to get 5.0 inch smartphone. but i have to wait for all the companies monster phones and SET MY OWN GAME MECHANICS TO SEE WHICH AMONG THEM WINS MY MONEY.
