no radio hardware!! is it a typo??!!
Radio was suppose to be a must have feature on a phone, in some countries radio broadcaster dont stream live radio so having a radio streaming app and unlimited data is not a solution.
Too bad this feature is removed, i hope internal hardware can support radio software....i hope so.
Trust me if this is not gonna support 4G network it will be a real big issue.so Samsung make it 4G compatible soon.
in the world nothing and no 1 is perfect, but overall(in general), Samsung galaxy s4 is really the only flagship smartphone to buy!!!!!!!!!!!!!
tito73, 31 Mar 2013lack of FM radio!no,.........why?Read before you post. Search before you post. Your question is already answer ~~ no FM radio because:
- iphones, BB Z10 and Lumia series don't have it
- it is a dual quad-core flagship smartphone hence you don't need FM radio!
- if you insist to get radio then install it from play store - which I don't know how. Some experts will tell you how to install FM radio from play store which you can use it off-line.
- if you have this phone means you also subscribe to unlimited data plan. If you dont have data plan, then you don't have the phone.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXX, 31 Mar 2013yeah right so 19500supports lte as well coolI does support LTE, but they'll still not provide LTE chip or LTE radio in i9500, coz they'll have to get more of them and will deduct there profit margin, can't really understand the logic of these different variants in different reigon, what if a country doesn't support LTE? this is not there headache, they are still costing almost same with or without LTE.
advice, 31 Mar 2013beleive me most of the galaxy buyers"10 millions" are not aware of"close source... moreso it means samsung will love to loose you say 5 millions out of 50 million customers? because this is absolute rough stats, there'll be far more than just 5m out of 50m, Android is full of fun only because of it openness, but Samsung is trying its best to make it closed source, i don't want only stock rooted/deodexed ROMs, i also want full featured pure AOSP ROMs which is not possible in Exynos, and therefore not possible for me buy this phone. it's great device, but i need Aosp..that's it.
The new Galaxy smartphone is really amazing in my opinion. Although it is somewhat expensive :(
k, 31 Mar 2013omg it has no fm radio!You deserve more than an FM radio, go for a China phone which has FM radio as well as TV tuner.
