Samsung is creating new trend and fashion for new gadgets just like apple did, but apple's mistake was its focus on design and perfection. It had been successful tactics till the samsung emerged with new ideas based on horse power, great screens, multicores, long battery life and so on. Sammy is popular because of a bunch of factors that sony is lacking. Sony needs to create something really outstanding. The entirely new range of gadgets, not just a few relatively good phones.
Last chance for samsung / android to wake up and fix their battery drain and lag. 1 year left till phone contract ends. If both issues are not fixed.. Apple will be the only top dog left.

techlover1, 13 Feb 2013Come on Samsung (galaxy s4) impress us all!!!!!!!!!!I guess you'll just after wait like the rest of us Samsung fans.

Build and design is going to matter more now, this is the lesson Samsung has failed to learn and it is why many people are waiting for Xperia Z and dont give a F about S4.
Sure S4 will sell a lot more than Xperia Z and ZL combined, Samsung has the momentum to penetrate every part of the world market, will take 2-3 years to slow them down. Its a good start anyway, the Z is shifting our view on what a high end device is, S3 and Note 2 definitely does not fit into this new category, and neither will S4 (im 99.9% sure of it).
High end has already split into two categories, iphone 5 on the one side and max performance on the other side. Xperia Z is the first phone to tick the most important boxes from both worlds.
It's already good, but it must be even better and better! , With the exynos 5 octa!?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
AnonD-83328, 13 Feb 2013I bet u it will be again a plastic body ewwww!!!! samsung learn from sony,apple and htc.Samsung is on right track on their own.. They don't need glasses and aluminum to sell well.. If they learn from loosing companies like HTC and Sony, then they will go down.. HTC and Sony should learn from them instead on how to make a proper phone that everyone buys.. See the performance of butterfly there..
AnonD-3928, 13 Feb 2013Samsung please use aluminium on ur s4 this tym.....i dnt wanna spend 700$ on a phone which loo... moreThere may be other materials but not aluminum. I have seen many bends and scratches in ip5.They may look cheap after daily use.. I think gn2 will look premium than ip5 after 2yrs..they should use plastic but build it in a premium way without glossy finishing..
Tiger, 13 Feb 2013Hollow carbon fiber plastic is stronger than steel :)is that right...?
I heard the next space shuttle will be made of hollow carbon fiber since its stronger than steel and obviously lighter, effectively putting titanium alloy into retirement.
at what point will we see handsets not needing to be more powerful, but instead the apps and software become more optimized? we see this all the time in pc gaming, where a properly developed game can look great on pc, and not drag down the system, but a rubbish console port can send the temperatures through the roof! the quad core Krait in my nexus 4 is more than enough for any application on a handset.

Does the phone looses it functionality coz of this.. If it doesn't affect the phone's performance but will be useful for certain people then stop bashing it..
AnonD-83328, 13 Feb 2013I bet u it will be again a plastic body ewwww!!!! samsung learn from sony,apple and htc.r u high? learn from apple, sony and HTC? since when did samsung had bad sales? LMAOOOO
