> In reply to Sean @ 2014-04-19 01:39 from 3JnW - click to readI am saying HD at 5.5 inch as a phone is pathetic, not Full HD. Neo has an HD (720 * 1280 ) display, S4 has full hd (1080 * 1920 ).

And yes compared to s4, note 3 neo has a much worse screen. And for TV argument, you just watch your TV from 15 cm, you'll see big giant pixels. We watch tv from 5-15 feet away and that's much more than the distance between your phone and eyes. So the full hd 40 inch display looks good from 10 feet but if you go to 15 cm, you need a much dense screen.

> In reply to sam @ 2014-04-17 20:40 from rKwx - click to readUnfortunately, back is glossy and is slippery. A remedy is to use an s-view cover. as when you flip it, you hold the soft feathery part which provides a firm grip.

For the sound, it's much louder than xperia z or nexus 5. The sound is really loud and there is a dedicated pocket mode for hearing it at crowded places.

The call quality is really good. To make it awesome, there is a feature in music app called adapt sound. Just set it up and make it work for calls. The calls will be optimized for your ear and will be the best you ever hear from the phone.

Have a nice day

Just a superb phone with a wow camera !!! The cons is a bit overheat when playing games or browsing and battery drain a bit fast but who cares, all smartphone also got that problem. Buy a powerbank and everything settled. Love my s4 for its great performance. Love it !!!!!

> In reply to [deleted post]I am sorry to disappoint you but that news is for the google play edition of s4, htc one or moto G that sport pure stock android and not touchwiz one. The updates to these will be provided by samsung in may.

> In reply to Laurence @ 2014-04-17 08:19 from wc6{ - click to readThat bigger screen is just HD. and hd at 5.5 inches is pathetic. S4 has a full hd screen which is much much better in sharpness.

For your information. A full hd screen had twice the number of pixels of an hd screen. And also s4 gas a smaller screen. So its even more sharp.

Bigger us not always better my friend.

Have a nice day

Great viewing angle for S4 (Xperia is the worst). HTC One have the best speaker output but photos shooting not as good as S4. LG not tested... I guess is way below S4 performance. Cheers

> In reply to joy @ 2014-04-16 20:12 from utgP - click to readI'm also researching on top class phones these days as i wanna buy a real smartphone, confused between xperia z,nexus5,lg g2 & s4,xperia z has poor camera, low sound, screen cracking issues & poor battery, nexus5 has poor audio quality with average camera, g2..well it's good but i'm not really convinced as lg are lazy in updating their phones. The only phone which is appealing to me is s4 as samsung is the most trusted brand & keeps updating their phones on regular basis, so i think i'll go with s4.
