It's really nice,but it has power button, i can't see in any pictures
Ugly i don't like the hardware button on the bottom and no super amoled display looks like heavy brick and no wireless charger support.
This Samsung Galaxy S4 looks amazing, so elegant looking and multi-functional, but like many other all-singing, all-dancing smartphones, it will soon be succeeded by augmented reality technology aka eyetops. At present this technology is dependant on smartphones, wirelessly, but in time it will become an all in one wearable unit, with a nano chip, and android/ios operating system integrated into it. It will be lightweight and just look like an elegant pair of spectacles. Eyetop technology, with the huge hands-free advantage over the current status quo will give a whole new meaning to the term multimedia, and will be simply impractical to be without it. Imagine sharing precious moments with loved ones, thousands of miles apart, as if both are experiencing it, in breathtaking HD. Taking footage of those special people in our lives, instantly, for posterity will be simply carried out via voice recognition. Voice recognition will also carry out a plethora, if not almost all other functionality of this exciting technology, such as GPS navigation, web browsing, sending and receiving text messages and e-mails, sharing media via e-mail and social networking. By merging our practical and work life, with our augmented world, It will make life so much simpler, and free up so much time that could of been spent sharing quality time with those people we care about most, never missing a moment. Access to information will be instantaneous, which will also save time and energy. Imagine the amazing potential of interactive, online gaming, with people all over the world, including family and friends, competing in HD quality, physical games such as tennis and football (consider a disabled friend or family member) without any exertion at all. Personal privacy will be a huge advantage too, especially when we carry out tasks such as online banking, or have intimate conversations with out partners etc. The hands-free aspect, could also benefit training in mechanics etc, where you can view digital overlays of the parts (like an instruction manual), as you carry out the actual work with your hands, without needing a physical instruction manual. The limitations of this eyetops technology will be simply limitless, and it is already getting lots of interest from developers, who are bound to create a huge catalogue of fun packed, educational and practical applications for this platform. Yes the Galaxy S4 looks super in terms of specs, but this mode of communication/entertainment will simply pale on significance, exponentially, once eyetops, augmented technology takes hold, globally. It will be the only choice for mankind. I'm excited, are you?
Anonymous, 14 May 2013it is the amoled screen that turns me off buying samsung phonesYes it is amoled screen , that I love very much. I think you only hear about amoled and never used it.
Mobilemaster, 21 May 2013What's your problem with the design? To me it looks very cool, and this is not made from cheap... moreMy friend do not mind them 'cause most of them are Sony's fans and getting jeaulous of the GS4 Active getting strong and resistable to water just like the Xperia Z. But the orginal GS4 already beat the Xperia Z when comes to sell. In fact Google even choose the GS4 to be a Nexus like. Samsung is the clear winner in the Android world. Nothing to worry about even if they down vote this beast when comes to the sell the GS4 Active will crash out the Xperia Z.
Hey guys what's wrong with you fanboys WHO COPY WHO i don't care. I just want amazing phone in all espect and cool features. For your information water proof phones were first made by casio then motorola then etc. So sony copy casio and motorola GOT IT.
We all know and its clear samsung makes best phones and apple makes best tablets and laptops and lg makes best tv, sony makes best camera, nokia makes best hardware,boss makes best speakers. Pioneer makes best amplifier dr.dre makes best headset and audi makes best cars
Thats all DALE...
I am not excited about red color, but overall it looks better then default S4. I really would like to buy S4, but it looks to girlish...
omar, 20 May 2013it's bad, it's not about Water resistant, it's about the shape, the design and the plastic, so... moreWhat's your problem with the design? To me it looks very cool, and this is not made from cheap plastic.
It's impossible to please everybody. :P
it's bad, it's not about Water resistant, it's about the shape, the design and the plastic, so regardless of Sony xperia z TFT, it's better than S4 active.
for me it's not S4 active, it's should be named S4 deactive!
