Vishal, 13 Feb 2013I wonder why, even when Sony now has quite a few world beater phones in Xperia T/TX/V/Z/ZL, yo... moreBecause benchmarks isnt always everything. Sony may have the specs now but for how long when SIV will launch in two-three months time? How much market share do they have at the moment? And the development support? Where's JB for Arc S and even Xperia S? They launched T/TX much later than SIII but without JB out of the box.
I'm sorry but Sony is always late to the party with a hefty price tag. The most popular phones always have the best support from the development industry, thus it is always pitched/compared against. And this is coming from a Sony fanboy.
The pain is killing me - while eagerly awaiting the arrival of this "superb" smartphone.
I wonder why, even when Sony now has quite a few world beater phones in Xperia T/TX/V/Z/ZL, you never get to see a comparison with them in benchmarks. In all reviews, even T/TX beat S3 hands down, yet no mention of them in benchmarks, let alone Z/ZL which at present blow the competition away. In almost all reviews and comparisons, i find a heavy bias towards Samsung. S3 might be v good, but i find it very cheap looking phone, esp in comparison to Xperia phones.

Stylus? A stylus is better suited on a tablet than a phone. A phone should be compact and easy to handle and thats what every iPhone aims for.
And even the most loyal Sammy fan will agree to me on this- That its because sammy doesn"t have anything else to offer, is the reason why its playing the CORE game. This was evident when the dual core Kraits and dual core A6x beat the Quad n Octa cores in terms of benchmarks.
Sammy had a lot of lead time to improve itself, but it failed to utilise the same to put itself in the proper league. Now that the competition is catching up spec wise atleast, it will take quite a lot of effort from Sammy to beat them like it used to.
Wowww sammy....galaxt s4 go with qualcomm s4 pro now...what da hell happen to exynos5???
At last Sammy also know the mali is dumb slow chipset....
Haa haaa....i laugh my ass reading this article....

of all the notes users .. i never seen one using their spen in the open .. look like a fool.
And tons of useless 's' battery drain features ... svoice smart alert .. quick glance .. and
NEVER release USEFUL NON battery drain features like :
sthumb - thumb misclick side bezel .. and ignores input like in ipad mini..
scover - or smart cover ..
crap .. rather go sony xperia z
aniket, 13 Feb 2013Samsung please use aluminium on ur s4 this tym.....i dnt wanna spend 700$ on a phone which loo... moreVery true. I am avoiding SAMMY only due to this. Their phone looks plastic toys.
sammy just go for higher specs, but dual core phones runs better and faster than a some quad core devices, none of samsungs premium phones feels premium like the other manufactures all thier phones are made with the same plastic cheap and premium so a no go for me with sammy again.
MSM8960 in a 2013 flagship is highly unlikely.I am pretty sure that Samsung won't be using a chipset that is now being dubbed as midrange in its all too important flagship. And there is the case of the sharps full hd phone http://www.gsmarena.com/sharp_aquos_phone_sh930w_brings_5_1080p_display_to_russia-news-5045.php
iJoker, 13 Feb 2013exynos is fast, and thats about thats all to it. Everyone wants a new piece of tech, but very... morehave you heard of extra features? and basic needs such as micro SD slot, big battery and removable battery? aswell as 16gb, 32gb to 64gb internal memory variant? A stylus added? Samsung just doesn't beef up the specs and add more cores... they also provide more features than any other android phone aswell as provide peoples basic needs. Thats why people buy samsung.
it's has to be the APQ8064T chipset!
MSM8960 is in the us galaxy s3!
exynos is fast, and thats about thats all to it.
Everyone wants a new piece of tech, but very few actually realise that samsung is just playing a numbers race since launch of GS1.
Iphone5 though looks practically the same except for 5th row but who actually understands the hardware inside is different?
This proves that people just want countable numbers to prove the worth. Ive seen ppl just going on wow more and more cores, higher clock rate but not the lower clock rare and better qualitied hardware.
aniket, 13 Feb 2013Samsung please use aluminium on ur s4 this tym.....i dnt wanna spend 700$ on a phone which loo... moresamsung is not famous with premium craftmanship design. they are famous with pumping up the spec to the max and then produce lots of similar models in a short time
Markus Leto, 13 Feb 2013I'll bet my 10 cents on that. Samsung will release a bunch of watered down droids after the S4... moresamsung is famous for their flooding strategy with phones of different models which are similar
Archie87, 13 Feb 2013I find it highly unlikely that any variants of the S IV would be dual core.I'll bet my 10 cents on that. Samsung will release a bunch of watered down droids after the S4 much like they did with the S3. Another dualcore mini perhaps?
Geez. Why pay for a premium if anyone could have a cheaper one that looks like it? No thanks Sammy.
