I like the hardware and software features of this phone ... AWESOME !. Don't like the design so much ... but will still buy this for sure ... :)
two quad cores!.. not to increase performance, but to save energy, sammy you have to think about other ways to save your energy but not to waste money of your customers!!!
I have the Note 2 whick I am very happy with.
Samsung good effort on the S4 but the Note 3 will need a lot more improvements
1) Dual SIM
2) Battery 4600 mAh
3) Xeon Flash
4) 6" super AMOLED Screen
5) Water Proof & Dust Proof
6) Better build quality - Use real Carbon Fiber etc
what a rip off! the galaxy s3 isn't even a year old. also, adobe flash is back for the gs4. samsung took it out on rhe gs3 via jelly bean update.
i found no innovation at this thing, only 'added' specs, simultaneous recording and shot?? HTC did it first (as i know) AMOLED?? it was long ago used by any smartphone (i dont know if they become feature or dumb phone by now) why?? why almost in every android phone, needs multiple core?? is there anyone use 9 or 10 apps at a time?? i'm just gonna LOL to read this spec
Rohan Chowdhury, 15 Mar 2013From the hands on look of it, it is clear that S4 is another piece of s**t (design wise) to en... moreI bet you also think that gestures on a notebook trackpad are useless and that no one would ever use it. Innovation is going forward... And just for the record ... It never uses all 8 cores simultaneously. There's a quad core high power and low power CPU. Only 1 is ever used depending on the phones needs.
The game is now on different level. Competition is sweating to make quad core phones and samsung made 8 core processor. Of course android will now punish all other phones for not having octa processor (example : you cannot instal 4.2 on galaxy s1).

If you think it does, you've never seen really crappy phones, then. It simply isn't the most beautiful phone out there.
Also, you're bashing it for its 5" display. The HTC One, which you want, has a 4.7" screen. Compare their dimensions--the difference is very tiny. In your hands, they'll almost be the same.
BlueBoy8555, 15 Mar 2013Great phone, great new features, solid and stylish design. Love it! iPhone is history now.xaxax yes
Again same plastic design, and sucky TouchWiz UI, HTC ONE eats this phone in any way.
Is really nice a phone with great features but the 441 density is small since bb 10 already has thesame pixel.
Hey come on, every one is talking about big plastic, crap, ugly etc. etc. But I wanna know 1 thing what they really want? A mobile phone made of gold, diamond and platinum? Or a beautiful and sexy box which have nothing inside..... does look is the only thing matter to them to invest 600 Euro?
Anonymous, 15 Mar 2013So what u are saying is u still need 4 more cores to save battery and u call that innovation? ... moredude i dont know which one is more innovative coz i havent experienced big.LITTLE technology in my hands never i did handson of S4 but from my studies n understandings i can say that exynos octa chip is more battery efficient than tegra 3 chip wid an extra battery saver core... while both are innovative measures... thats all m not saying that this one is more innovative than all others
wow great new features not to mention the Ground Breaking Poly carbonate body a.k.a. CHEAP PLASTIC!!! this took them years to perfect!
INDROID, 15 Mar 2013do u even know how the cores work... heavy tasks requires full use of all 4 cores in a quad co... moreSo what u are saying is u still need 4 more cores to save battery and u call that innovation? I think d 5th core on tegra 4 is a more welcome idea than having to make it up to 8. Besides y do u see most OEMs using Qualcomm chipset? It doesn't have any extra core aside d 4 A15 on d S4 pro and 600. Because seriously speaking, a well designed or built CPU should be able to do all d necessary tasking and still save u battery. That is innovation. That is technology. Having 8 or so many cores of CPU isn't innovative.
If u have a well built CPU and good gpu, u have a great device.
Why has Samsung still not understood thé importance of leaving plastic behind? They can build a 32 cores phone with NVIDIA GTX un it, if it's a piece or garbage made of lame cheapo plastic i'll buy thé humble dual core metal compétitor... No way i'm paying so much for plastic
