Kudos to samsung for the hardware upgrade and the rest of the new features in SG4 .
BUT it looks like SG3 , so by by Samsung .
God why they couldn't just use the sg2 case for it ?
My money will go to HTC this round, first time thou, hope I won't be disappointed .
i think the phone is ugly itself but i think what is uglier than that is its Toucwiz UI.
how retarded it seems in comparison with Sense and Time scape.
dayo., 15 Mar 2013Guys i remember people talking thrash about the sg3,it went on to be the top dog with millions... moreI totally agree with you.
I still remember all the crap people wrote about GS3 when it first revealed, it turned out that it became the most successful android phone in history.
I do expect the same goes for GS4. It will definitely be more successful than GS3, and despite what people say they all will end up buying it.
Cheap plastic, again... C'mon. You're not making a washing machine, Samsung! Give more premium feels.
I was impressed with processor spec of S4. But for my next smartphone, I still consider either HTC One or Sony Xperia Z. The analogy is simple, say you want to date with next girl, you want a girl with just top notch in bed but average looking, or beauty looking with still satisfaction in bed ;)

"if it looks the same....how would people know I ... moreG Pro big battery? Didn't you see the battery test? G Pro is the biggest joke of the year with S4 claiming a solid second place.
Old design and ugly hyper glaze, and still the same old AMOLED incapable of displaying details in dark areas.

The SGS4 has:
a lot better, bigger, sharper screen (do you eyes see better than can be seen... moreStill not as much as a bigger wow that went out for "extra row of icon"
And even more for "panorama"....my 2009 LG optimus one could do it
And how can we forget the new charger slot, that can be entered upside down....geI'd gladly throw away all my compatible accessories just to play with that plug
Samsung is going to lose a big market share this year. Going with LG Optimus G...
Remember how Samsung made fun of Apple
"if it looks the same....how would people know I upgraded"
And why not the ginormous battery from note 2
This should have looked different, completely different from other models. you can still keep the existing styling of the s3
While the hardware is capable
I still find it a little hard to go For, XPERIA z is sexier and has waterproof body to boast, G pro is overall bigger and has a way bigger Battery. The HTC one, despite sealed battery has that camera thingy to boast
This device has nothing stands out
some people Knowles (or brain) are made by cheap plastic. galaxy are made by high quality poly-carbonate.
almost all iphone fans buy aluminum and class . then cover with ( cheap) film , after that put it in , (cheap) aluminium, (cheap) leather, (cheap) poly-me, (cheap) silicone, (cheap) gel, ( cheap) plastic case ( some double thicker than the phone, so can't make the selection at the side of the screen.) , (cheap . . . ). IS THAT MAKE SCENE ?
can iphone fan change battery in 3 seconds ( 3 batteries about $15 come with extra charger ) ? or micro SD ? ( they may never heard about micro USB )
why all iphone accessories are using microUSB cable ( they may have no idea what is it nether )?
i used Iphone 4 for 7 months so i know after 80% memory, phone is slowing down too bad .
look at the IOS keyboard if you don't understand what i said . your brain really are cheap plastics
AnonD-124054, 15 Mar 2013The s4 is way better than its competition. its compact than the optimus G pro, htc One, and Xp... morei agree wit u dude !!! But in the specs and hardware wise Samsung GALAXY S4 will blow all other current smartphones !!! Samsung should either absorb sony or hire all sony's designing team !!! Yes again hardware and features no one can even come close to SAMSUNG, and the new beast S4!!!1
Quite pathetic design.
I still don't understand why Samsung is not following the design pattern of S2. So far that was the best design they made so far.
S3 was pathetic and S4 is so on. They make great hardware but they screw up in the design.
this is First impressions is last impressions
i like xperia z better then samsung s4
it seems s4 cant beat one in ui/sound/desine/buil quality maybe camera..\
but s4 is unique in software..very amazing softwares..
i think 2013 without Consider sells number:
3)z or g pro
but must wait for x phone altoth one and s4 good enough i dont think any others.
"The lighting at the event wasn't the best and the units there were running a pre-release version of the software, but given the tricky conditions the output came out pretty decent."
Well, that would be the exact reason which separates a good camera from a bad one, the ability to take good pictures in non optimal conditions.
