I’m sure, it will only last a day or two... I need a monster battery for this. not that stupid 2600 mah battery..! come on samsung, i know you can do better batteries..!
I waited a lot for this phone and i think it finally arrived with features that are good .....especially the 13mp rear camera and processor speed and impressive screen i'm still using my S2 very pleased.....the S3 Was almost identical to S2 THE S4 IS A GIANT LEAP COMPARED TO BOTH S3 AND S2 AND WILL BE MY NEXT PHONE.......:-)
They're still using the Menu/Home/Back button configuration?! Stick with Google's design guidelines! That's the reason I picked the Xperia T over the S III!
The S4 has all the right features...
..but still looks as ugly as hell.
Basically every Samsung looks like a larger/smaller version of another phone.
If Samsung can only invest into their design team as much as their features team...
Anonymous, 15 Mar 2013there are hundreds of launchers, etc, etc ALREADY on google play and elsewhere to change its l... moreGreat, so can it change the mid 90's edge curves and home button? And should I scowl every time I open the case? Just face it, it's a fair world. Superior spec comes with an inferior design.
I'm sticking with my s3. Most of the features the s4 has will be disabled. Just like my s3. First few days will be very exciting but after that when you see your battery drain. You have to disable. I don't care about plastic or aluminium that much. Not gong to sleep with my phone. And 8 core!!! Why 2 or 4 core is more than enough. RAM is the important thing. 2GB not enough. The only thing seriously. .. I hate about my s3 is the back speaker. It should've been on the front as 2 speakers or at the sides. When the phone rings. . Almost 40 % of the sound dies.
Not going to get it. Not worth the upgrade.
S3 STILL THE BEST :-)
molotofc, 15 Mar 2013Ugly. My next phone will be HTC One.Agree. Ugliest high end ph ever. I am happy that I bought Sony z.
The specs and software are great. But the aesthetics should chenge with the next version. while we are never invited at the design table, we BEG the designers to look at these fans based concept looks. PLEASE, PLEASE!

If you'd wanted a good looking phone(other than Samsung ofcourse) a case would looked bad to hide it's beauty in it and it must be made from better materials that this one.
Actually, I think its a winner. Samsung came back to their sense and Mayweather vs Guerreroa phone in the color Black! There just might be hope for this device!

Personally, i really like xperia z (i need an SD slot. sorry HTC, you have shot yourself in the foot again). Just fancy a change from samsung (had s2, now s3) and its a very nice piece of kit, but i am not due for an upgrade yet.
I did recommend my niece cos she dropped her phone in water lol
I aint bothered by a plastic phone I put a case on in from day one, my Sony arc s is plastic and has lasted me 2 years now and ive rarely take the case off. Give me specs and battery over design any day as I read loads of peoples opinions on here saying u will never need dual core and a gig of ram now my slow ass 1.4 single core CPU and 512mb struggle to keep up for well over 18 months my phone is laggie and buggie. I'll go for a power house phone with a company who update the phones longer than a year old any day!
I won't dwell on the specsheet of S4.I would rahter say
again a "CHEAP" & "Pathetic" design.
So basically, they ripped off a bunch of ideas from Nokia and packaged it with a bigger screen? Lame. Lumina 920 anyday over this.
It's a great ph except for same design as SGS 3. Samsung should name it Galaxy S3 plus instead of Galaxy S4.
Yes, after 2 months buying this phone, you will be surprised that Samsung will realease another S4 variance i.e. S4 Plus, simply saying that your phone is outdated. Hahaha so commoner, cheap. I would rather buy HTC, Sony or iPhone.
8 core cpu, full hd screen, 13 Mpx camera, 2 gig ram... bla bla.
Personally I stopped care about those things at 2 core, 800x400 sreeen, 5 MP camera and 1 gig ram. Everything above that is such a waste of resources and money. I only wish that batteries improve and thats it...

Oh, and it's water resistant... just saying
