A Galaxy s4 with pure Android will probably be as smooth as the iPhone but with the Android experience. This might actually be the one that will truly be an Apple nightmare.
The price is still pretty steep though, even for a stock Android. I wonder what will happen to the Nexus series now....
DAN13L, 16 May 2013S4 is Slightly longerNo.
S4 is not longer than S3.
Don't lie iboy
Anonymous, 15 May 2013Google forgot MotorolaThis is insane where the hell is xphone peoples are excited with s4 vanilla but this is fake believe me google is cooking something really bad it has a game plan trust me
lashton, 16 May 2013You must be living under the rock, the HTC one has outsold the S4, I sell Mobile phones for a ... moreI can tell that you tell lies for a living.
The S4 is the best selling device for the past two weeks, outselling everything. Unless you're the sole provider of smartphones in remote island, it seems that you're the one inside the cave now.
Man, every year will be teh same crap? C'mon haters, you guys spoke the same lame words 'bout the S3 last year and BOOM, it outsold everything but the iPhone. Wake up and smell the coffee.
the only thing good about touchwiz is the awesomely functional video player.
Actually the touchwiz video player is the only reason i bought Samsung devices.
Stock android video player is a plain trash.
omg i knew it! google made a mistake to partner with LG for the nexus.. can't wait to sell my n4 for the superb galaxy nexus =)
wont sell, 15 May 2013Too expensive for Nexus deviceNot is nexus device, is s4 with "nexus soft"
Wow. Google has just ended the three way 'best phone of 2013' war in one fell swoop. Awesome.
[deleted post]I don't know but somebody is so selfish and thinking about something impossible.
First, it's not a subsidized phone as Google Nexus 4. It is just a niche product for some enthusiasists
Second, nobody is as stupid as making another phone with same hardware and sell it for 1/2 price, for sure. If so, it will ruin the sale of TW S4, and people in other countries will "stop buying and waiting for the Google edition come to their countries"
To all those whinging about the cost. The nexus 4 is a mid range device subsidized by google.
The SGS4 is arguably the best phone available.
Compared to the Nexus 4 it has
Bigger better screen
13MP camer vs 8MPA
A lot faster processor and graphics
Triple the battery life
Multiple additional software and hardware features.

In relation to touchwiz and stock android. I have a note 2 and had a Nexus 10 for a while.
I found that there were a lot of options missing on stock that were in touchwiz. On top of that touchwiz looked better (personal opinion). In general i was a bit underwhelmed with stock android.
I do agree that there are a lot of samsung apps that i would like to delete. Also the touchwiz interface is a pain... personally i run GoLauncher.
That said, i think its good having the option of stock android on the best phone currently available.
really? I think you have not read bout the 6 million making it the fastest selling android device EVER!!!!!!!!!!! Wake up dont be a hater
wont sell, 15 May 2013Too expensive for Nexus deviceexpensive? do u have any idea what tech is in that phone? do u realise how much it costs to put a 1080p display and that chipset alone, let alone anything else? that is the cheapest phone with the best specs. google and samsung are in a deal, but this is not officially the next gen nexus device.
