GSMArena's review: S4 is a best device ever in every parts
Samsung: Nice Job! We will keep supporting your company
Looks like a fantastic device, but not so much better than my GS3 to justify getting it off contract. My GS3 on Jellybean and an extended 4800 mAh battery is pretty good.
On the AT&T website, click on details for the Samsung Galaxy S4 and you will see under the Music category it lists "Built in FM Radio" requires use of headphones. Does this mean that the phone will have FM radio after all?
I dont get it why people are bashing the "plastic" backside of the samsung devices.
Its very simple: if you want to offer replacable battery, external sd card and the thin flipcovers you just cannot create non-removable backsides ore aluminum unicasings. Polycarbonate is the best way.
That way samsung offers extremely versatile phones. Period.
Kinda Find it weird that people go on bashing this phone for not having FM radio although NO ONE has ever thought that this review unit was running on pre realese software.Even gsm arena forgot to mention this -_-...
I have an iPhone 4s and I would like to know if the field of view for the camera and video is better on the S4. Thank you.
You got your hands on a retail unit, can you please tell me what's the firmware version? Wich build? And so on... Do you also think it will leak online soon? Thanks
Anonymous, 10 Apr 2013The 19500 has not been available to benchmark yet but it is rumored to be fasterIt has been benchmarked and is faster. It has not had battery endurance test yet
manoje, 07 Apr 2013Same design,same thing earlier only copy paste,i think windows 8 is good for all use Windows 8 is good for waste box .
I'm awaiting this monster. With an Octa processor its going initiate a revolution in the mobile phone category. Cant wait to download One Browser to it and download HD videos and high quality music on it. It misses the water proof feature which could have made it the best phone ever made. Still a lot of opportunity in the market. Wish to buy it soon. ;)
RaJ, 05 Apr 2013Samsung I9500 Or Samsung I9505 which is better as per Synthetic benchmarks? The 19500 has not been available to benchmark yet but it is rumored to be faster
Giorat23, 31 Mar 2013HTC ONE a way better device at all! Samsung it's only crap gimmicks, nothing new like HTC ONE ... moreyeah,good luck going with a company that keeps digging their own grave financially.
Hmmm, 04 Apr 2013Greate phone, I'll go get HTC One.yeah see you around troll!
WOOOT??? 739 EUROS for this phone??? with ONLY 16GB??? NO WAY!!! Unless the price is cut by HALF this phone is a rip off!!!!
Hats off to Samsung once again. They definitely have another winner here and the other flagships of other brands will be eclipsed by the superlative S4.
I don't really mind the plastic looks of it cos more often than not, I'd use some casing with it. After all, its what in the phone that really counts and amoled screens are just unbeatable.
Can't wait for it to come out so that I can ditch my Xperia ZL for this monster of a phone !
gsmarena really can't handle criticsm they remove your comment
me stating this wasn't one of their better reviews due to lack of feature reviews like Knox and glove test etc they remove comment
