Now if Samsung debuts a metal design instead of 100% plastic then I'll get it over the HTC One, although since the scores are on par, it'll be consumers preference (UI, etc).

They should have concentrated on fixing the touch delay on android instead!!
Whats the use of blazing 25k .. when it cannot even handle touch response?? very sad..
Well, it's not bad.. Not many surprises here. The score is on par with Htc one so now it's the matter of design. I wonder which has the longer battery life though? Also nice knowing my iPads GPU can be used on mobiles haha.
Now, I made up my mind... I won't get the S4 since it already has 8 cores and yet it only has 25K in Antutu? Xperia Z has at least 22K in Antutu and the new HTC One has 25K as well with Snapdragon 600 which is only a quad core. At least the Xperia Z and the One are not cheap when it comes to the looks and designs. I will just choose between the two and I will pass on the S4 that's for sure! Xperia Z is already here in the Philippines and it is being sold for P27,000.00 equivalent to 675 USD and it comes with an original Sony headset pro which is bluetooth enabled! I hope though that the store where the Z is being sold will have a freebie when One comes out. I love HTC and Sony! I have no doubt about Sammy's performance but I don't like the quality of the plastic that they use with the phone. The reason why I sold my S3 and had it exchanged for One X+ was because the bottom part of the phone got a couple of cracks without me dropping the phone particularly near the charging port which is annoying since the price is way expensive!!! Tsk tsk tsk... At least the Xperia Z is way durable since it has dragontrail glass and the sides are made up of brush aluminum.
Meh, dual stereo speakers? My Samsung Omnia HD had that in 2009, AMOLED screen? What is supposed to be new is already old, HTC screwed around to much, Apple is now better, Sony? Pass ...
Sadly Samsung is the only one standing doing something.
the S4 will be king for the next 12 months, all you wanna be tech heads better get used to it.
Bada OS FTW!
SYMBIAN STILL KICKS AZZ, this reply was done using a modded Omnia HD running at single core 900MHz and 256MB ram with a 3.7" 360x640 AMOLED with pentile matrix display while using tune wiki app internet radio stream while also using Ovi Maps ...
Cant beat old technology.
Whats the point of super fast when there is touch delay in android?? Please look at tegra 4 please sammy.. fix touch delay!!

Anonymous, 04 Mar 2013Why samsung will fail and only fans will find this model great.
Amoled screen with flashy col... moreDid you notice how the 4 cores available today consume marginally more power than the dual cores when they were first introduced? It's called the advancement of technology and power management.
You're probably right though. Who needs multiple processors in their phone. Go back to single cores and 128mb memory I say. It's not like applications are getting more resource hungry.
thing about having extra battery u have to charge them and with sammy that takes 3 to 4 hours so it gets annoying unless u have a battery base so me i use sony and that will last me a day average use and if i no im going for long i pull out my n8 that last me 2 days without touching a charger any longer than that i take a charger i guess to me it comes round to the best all round phone if i see something comes out that i feel is the best after i saw sony xz i wanted it they day it came out i gave my girl my s3 and went and bought it and ther is in nothing that i miss cause i never had an extra battery so i do think sammy is gona come out with a good phone but not one thats gona make me put down this sony but you never now sammy could suprise me and smack sony in the face and im a have two make my girl choose s3 or sony z sell the one she dont want and s4 here i come

This GS IV is underforming spec and get stupid low scorepoint.
Samsung always losing the performance benchmark.
The COPYCATS brand only rely on POPULARITY/tv to persuade buyer.
