digitalw, 13 Feb 2013the only reason stopping from buying Samsung is not the OS or the internal hardware but the bu... moreAbsolutely rubbish.I'm a motor mechanic and I'm always losing by phone down the side of the seats in customer cars when it falls out of my pocket.Or if I forget to take it out of my pocket and I'm working on something low down and lean on the car with my phone in the pocket I'm putting my weight on.Or I put it on top of my toolbox and put tools on top of it when I'm finished.There's a few minor scratches on the screen,and apart from a £2.99 case to protect it,it still works as perfectly as it did the day I first got it last summer.Seriously though,anyone who doesn't do something extra to protect a delicate piece of electronics worth about £500 obviously doesn't have to work hard to pay for things like this.
I just hope this isn't the design of the GS4! Specs wise it's fantastic. I'am gonna buy it in April IF the design is different to the GS3.
Anonymous, 13 Feb 2013The day samsung loses its physical button.. Is when apple first remove their home button.
T... moreSamsung has micro sd slot, apple doesn't
Samsung has bigger screen and resolution, apple doesn't
when apple makes a phone with bigger screen and higher resolution then we will say apple copied samsung
The right choice Samsung. Hate own screen buttons on nexus 4 and Sony.
Yakzzz, 13 Feb 2013Having a physical home button is really very useful. But old fashioned.But it's okay. Or else we have reach upto on/off button to unlock phone everytime.
What's with some people talking about build quality and materials used as being very important and trying to sound like an expert? HAVE YOU NOT HEARD OF PROTECTIVE COVERS? Which 90% of phone owners use anyway?
I've never seen or heard anyone came up to me and tells me that my S3 has bad build quality? I only hear it on online forums or blogs? Why? Because in real life majority of people don't care about what materials is used aslong as the phone looks good, good features and expensive ads they see on tv.

i hate plastic, 13 Feb 2013Some people here cant accept other people opinion.....
Sometime " bashing/ trolling"... moreIts comment like that one, will make others call you a troll/fanboy etc.
Why do you think the internals is "cheap"... so by my understanding of what your saying is that, all phones out there are "cheap" then, because nearly every phone internals are made mostly in korea or china.
The "cheap" korean company that uses "cheap" parts are responsible for making the "cheap" parts for the "expensive/premium iphone" and Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 10, and other OEMs.
See what i did there?
samsung she is not crazy...she pay part of 1.4 billion dollars for this home button(samsung remunerate apple for her violation)...she is not stupid to remove this button.
Mates with Apple5 keep looking at my S3 and say they got the wrong phone....Good they are keeping the home button as does not take up screen space....logical and good!!
ok this means the galaxy s4 is bigger than xperia z and xperia zl....SONY FTW!!
Some people here cant accept other people opinion.....
Sometime " bashing/ trolling" doesnt mean bad at all....
It will bring good/balance to market competition...
Honestly ...... a 700 dolar your guy pay buying phone is a ripoff for the cheap lookin device..made from cheap part...its your hard earn money....
Im not fanboy of any brand.....
