Anonymous, 16 Mar 2013You do understand the superAMOLED of the GS4 blows Retina away don't you?You do know that RETINA is just a marketing word used by Apple. Now another thing for you to know, PPI means "PIXELS PER INCH", the more pixels you push into a certain SIZE screen will give you the PPI number, now since the HTC has the same 1920x1080 "1080p" screen as the S4 but since the screen is .3" smaller means that there will be more pixel per inch for given area, HTC at 4.7" 1080p screen gives you a 468 PPI, S4 at 5" 1080p screen gives you 441 PPI, LG Optimus PRO at 5.5" 1080p screen gives you 401 PPI. It has nothing to do about retina or whatever you want to call your tech, it is all basic math. That is the same reason why a 50" 1080p PDP or LCD will look sharper than a 60" PDP or LCD screen, both TV's are pumping out the same amount of pixels 1920x1080, but since the 50" is 10" smaller, you have more pixel per inch "PPI", therefore the 50" screen will look sharper "more pixels packed into a certain area, which in turn mean less hollow space between the pixels".
The price is great. I got my note 2 full price 700 on tmobile, totally worth it.
I might buy the s4 for my sister, can't wait to try all those amazing features, especially the smart scroll and air gesture because sometimes when i eat I use my phone or when my hands are dirty, now that is a inovative feature.
Good job samsung,
Bunyip, 16 Mar 2013Sorry but the nexus 4 isn't a high end phone. Plus it is subsidised by google. No lte Ave... morei agree with most of what you said, except screen, that's why is 349, so 150 more for all of this things and we get 499 i think its a fair price for SGS4.

i didn't want to change my S3 as i was disappointed with S4's boring design but this price is tempting me to sell my S3 and put a S4 next to my XZ. two best phones of 2013. maybe i sell my IP5 as well to buy One too. God knows.
