What u complaining about price against benchmarks samaung will not base their price on what scores it has? Its a flagship and it destroyed the s3 in basic tests on a pre production unit, one bench mark put the iphone and s3 @ around 15000, the leaked version of s4 topped 25000 and that was not even on a final version of android, the htc one actually scored 25300 which put it first, however the Htc is a completed device and is only lacking camera modules hence the delay, so i suspect once the bugs are fixed and final version of android is on the s4 i reckon it could hit 27000 which is crazy, not sure what type of benchmark it was tho
well me i want a phone that can survive a drop so i could see why its important so im waiting for drop test if does good i will get s4.
why so serious.., 17 Mar 2013How ridiculous samsung place a high price without any official benchmark run this phone.
579 ... moreridiculous price for high end phone?? Are you ok?
Why do we need drop test? There is special phones for droping around.
And what's wrong with plastic? Is it better to buy cool iPhone or other brand and wrap in plastic case? What's the difference?
Sounds like Samsung should first call you and ask your permission for the price :)
why so serious.., 17 Mar 2013How ridiculous samsung place a high price without any official benchmark run this phone. 579 ... moreHere is a drop test for you, not the PLASTIC S4 but the PLASTIC S3, looks like that cheap plastic is doing a fine job, LOL. enjoy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGQOhVGFbyk
Why you people worry about design? Why would Samsung change it? Previous phones was so popular, it means people liked Samsung design.
Sony, htc changing design all the time because their sells are going down and they want to find perfect design. Same reason why iPhone is not changing for many years.
And hatters will hate everything. You can change design and they gonna say that previous was better etc.
But Samsung made great phone (same size bigger screen - perfect), and the price is good too.
How ridiculous samsung place a high price without any official benchmark run this phone.
579 pricetag is insane price for piece of plastic...
Question is now where are the.
2. Or drop test for this phone?
2 words from me- ridiculous price
RockySony, 16 Mar 2013Cheaper than iphone5
Smarter than iphone5
Better than iphone5It is also very much cheaper than Xperia Z or ZL.
I guess Sony is in trouble again if they don't reduce the price because the hardware in Xperia Z or ZL is one generation older than SGS4.
i think this is just one way to take away consumer interest from other brands. it's still a month before the actual release date so the prices will be around 700-800 i believe.
i don't think this is real though i hope it is. it can't be cheaper than the note 2.
it's even cheaper than the s3 considering the technology used.
i'll get myself one if this is true.
The design is good and acceptable. For sure this device will attract non-s3 user.
For the PPI fanatics, enjoy http://thirdculture.com/joel/shumi/computer/hardware/ppicalc.html
Forget the octa-core, for fair comparison this phone packed a 1.9ghz snapdragon 600. So this will be more powerful than HTC One or Experia Z plus the price is cheaper, big 2600mah battery, sdcard and more features. S4 will fly off the shelf faster than any phones.
Thanks SHAMEsung for making my HTC One OBSOLETE before I have even gotten a chance to lay my hands on it....
Persian USer, 16 Mar 2013i didn't want to change my S3 as i was disappointed with S4's boring design but this price is ... moreFor someone so disappointed, you have a very strange way of showing it, so you looking to sell your S3, IP5, "the dog the cat, the skateboard", LOL.
