Wait for some time and go for galaxy s4...
This is the best smartphone
I have Samsung S3 and I LIKE IT ALOT! But I'm not going to buy another Galaxy series until they change the overall design. The design of S3 is good. People in most asia country use big screen phone like S3 here to watch drama, WHILE walking to work, waiting at subway,bus, etc. So S3 design is more into entertainment & Utility than phone. My first phone is : Nokia - Samsung - Sony Erickson - Sony Erickson - Blackberry - Samsung (Till Now and I LOVE IT!)
first phone with ddr3 ram
Who knew the infrared port spec would once again say yes in high end phones! It has been years since i started wondering when gsmarena will take it off the list.
bigolo, 08 Apr 2013no FM Radio - bummerLOL now I am not getting it because it does not have FM Radio
Anonymous, 08 Apr 2013S4 it's a plastic toy with green hue screen that call it Super Amoled. BTW Sony xperia z scree... moreman just go and find urself a life btw Note 2 is not pentile its RGB stripe and amoled smashes ur beloved xperia Z's screen so choose whatever u want the compares say that xperia z is only better than the S4 when it comes to the design and water/dust resistant and the rest is for the S4
Smartphone Fan, 08 Apr 2013Man ... you really done your homework ,Great job .rightly said no new features on s4 HTC one is the way to go...
- Am amazed how many IP/Sony fanatics come here and troll with no logic, just to prove HEY MINE IS BETTER THAN YOURS ! If ur main interest of a mobile phone is the looks and design ONLY , then buy a Vertu ... Also sell your great performing average looking cars and let's all of you buy an Aston martin cause they look better !
Am Really happy that your staring at your phone body ALL day and waving it to ppl and your enjoying the Sony Z/ HTC one Design, but please understand that millions of Ppl search for performance and features like me, I have a new router with the NEW Wi-Fi Ac speed ( x3 time the speed of N ), and guess what....S4 is the ONLY mobile that support this Wi-Fi speed right now ! I Will NEVER buy a phone that lacks MicroSD like HTC One ! I stopped buying IPhone cause I discovered the importance of a removable battery from other phones !
I hate Sony Xperia! I swear to buy ever again!!! They r a big cheaters!!! Slow on updates, UI is laggy, N face problems on my T! I say Xperia Z will be the same!
pankspoo, 08 Apr 2013Is it debate competition? Every sony lover, htc lover, lg lover, apple lover and so other ... moreS4 it's a plastic toy with green hue screen that call it Super Amoled. BTW Sony xperia z screen even though it's washed out still better than your pentile crap that found on S3,Note 2 and S4.
The most ugly phone with the sg3 and pretty much all the other devices of this company.

1. I have Small hands and the phone is wonderful to hold, Sony's Omnibalance design ... moreYou are really a hard worker for Sony. But sony treated you with that washed out screen .After the arrival of s4 your z will be in water tank. (Waterproof waste).
here son is better than older daddy. sony way better,after paying premium price who is ready to use cheap plastic device like samsung.key is always durability samsung is still not durable.they made plenty of software stuffs like smart stay,smart pause,smart scroll.you think your phone is last for using this features.few drops will changes things of.then it will smart stay in service centers and smart scroll with your money.all these are software tweaks a good software developer can port in to any other smartphones.but durability can port only one sony to another,ha ha..
[deleted post]FYI, even if I'm wrong about Octane being not liquid or anything that exists... I'm still pretty sure that it's not meant for a cellphone, so better still remove it, mister!
Anonymous, 08 Apr 2013FM radio is so importand in loads of countries, it's a mistake not to put it on that phone.buy your self that and you will be ok regarding Fm radio
[deleted post]"inside slightly improved, but average user wouldn't notice the difference!"
But everyone knows that S4's performance is on par -if not better- than HTC one, so you're saying that since its insides are barely improved, then S3 is enough to compete with One?
