What is this Samsung trying to do now?!?
Another rocking phone with awesome specs...
But still, it's not WATERPROOF and DUSTPROOF.
This is high quality brand, but c'mon it's 2013.... You have to make a big deal...
These specs leave out some sensors that are included.
The full list of sensors should read:
temperature/humidity, barometer, hall sensor, RGB light sensor, gesture sensor, proximity sensor, gyro sensor, accelerometer, and geomagnetic sensor
szymon247 if it has bluetooth capability then chances are extremely good it can pickup FM radio as well.
paustyn, 14 Apr 2013I don't seem why radio is not among your priorities... Really? It's 2013. How many people listen to FM Radio, and then how many do so on their phones? Maybe 0,001% of all users? FM module is just another thing you need to support and pay for. Personally I don't like paying for something that I've never used since the 90s.
jams1010, 14 Apr 2013yes i agree with you........sony xperia z is a best choice as of now.Z is total crap compared to S4, and even compared to S3! Flaps are annoying when plug in headphones and screen needs a plastic shatter proof and a plastic screen protector, and glass is fragile, just ask any iPhone 4S owner, and needs a plastic case, waterproof = bad sound quality, design is just a boring uncomfortable rectangle with too sharp edges, and the design is actually really bad because the volume rocker is placed in the totally wrong place and the power button looks like a missplaced unvanted zit/pimple/spot!
Why are there so many Sony-fans-trolls here on the S4 pages?
Anonymous, 14 Apr 2013No, the screen of the XZ wipe the floor with the SGS4 oversaturate color screen.It is very easy to turn off the oversaturation on the S4 screen!
binny, 14 Apr 2013True. S4 screen is best out there .No, the screen of the XZ wipe the floor with the SGS4 oversaturate color screen.
Sumit_22, 14 Apr 2013Guys, I am confused between s4,note 2,HTC one.... Pls help..... I am already using a 5' screen... morei am confused like you between these 3 phones but im gonna go with s4 since htc one doesnt have the quick task notification bar and since s4's screen is better than that of the note 2..but i hope the battery life of s4 is at least as good as that of the note 2 or even better..cant wait
jams1010, 14 Apr 2013yes i agree with you........sony xperia z is a best choice as of now.may be for u,but in the world there are millions of "smart people" who want to be able to hear their phones when ringing,and as u know the xperia z has a very poor audio output .
gsmarena: "We ran our traditional loudspeaker test on the Sony Xperia Z, and the results were awful. Scoring a Below Average result even with xLOUD turned on, the Xperia Z is a definite disappointment in terms of speakerphone loudness."
also in the world there are millions of "smart people" who want to take the best camera shots by their phones so they don't need to take their digital cameras where ever they go,but as u might also know the xperia z camera is average for what supposed to be 2013 flagship by sony.
gsmarena:"The resolved detail is hardly spectacular and the noise levels are only average, but the dynamic range is good and contrast is excellent. The results are pretty good overall, although we wouldn't say it has a significant advantage over the best 8MP shooters from last year. Matching their performance is still a pretty good achievemen,though.
and here part of what gsmarena said about the washed out xperia screen:The difference in viewing angles is particularly striking as the mediocre viewing angles of the Sony flagship look shocking next to the paper-like screen of the Galaxy S4.
my advice for people who want a high end phone but they don't like samsung,htc one in the best choice ,avoid sony unless you only use sony phones,or u r spending most of your day swimming.
ThomasCarlsson, 14 Apr 2013It is 2013, so every phone should have a FM-radio, just as they all have a camera with a flash...!It seems the sgs4 has an FM radio .. Gsm arena should investigate this and report as appropraite .samsumg site for the s4 states that it has a radio..
Anonymous, 14 Apr 2013Samsung should work for best Windows phone (dual sim). Laptop's days gone. Complete package of... moreWindows 8 is no longer "Windows", Windows 7 was the last real "Windows"!
Linux Mint 14 with the Cinnamon desktop, is far better than Windows 8, and Microsoft Office is a total waste of money because there are many free alternatives that together easily can do a lot more than the overexpensive Microsoft Office, and even on Android the Office alternatives are far better than the one from Microsoft on WP 8 phones from Nokia...!
It is 2013, so every phone should have a FM-radio, just as they all have a camera with a flash...!
People will never differentiate whether you have an S3 or S4 or Note 2 or galaxy Grand or S3 mini !!!!
That phone was supposed to be unique in design and there was supposed to be a change in the cheap material that gets scratches even with extra care!
I admit iPhone 5 has nothing new .. But you can go for Sony Xperia Z .. What a phone:)
Guys, I am confused between s4,note 2,HTC one.... Pls help..... I am already using a 5' screen phone( indian brand micromax) and feeling handy enough and fits well in pocket..... I like s4 ffeatures a lot but makes me incline towards note 2 due to s-pen. Also impressed by the HTC one live home screen.... Design does not matter much coz even if i buy htc one i m gonna use a protection cover..... Pls help.... Thanks in advance.... #peace
