Think I would rather choose the Xperia Z and HTC One. Still scarred by poor experience of the S3 build quality or lack of it. Good luck to all but I am outta here....Yawn......
What's the point of octa core cpu on smartphone if you can't utilize the full potential of it?
Design is more than a cool look. The size of this phone is not larger than the S3, yet it has a bigger screen. If you compare it to the other 5 inch phones out there, you'll see you get more out of the S4 screen, this is because of the physical home button. I held my phone (the S3) up against the Sony Z and when measured from the home button and up its actually the same size.
IMO, Sony, Htc and lg are wasting vauleble screen space by placing the home button on the screen.
Blankman, 15 Mar 2013This will be a decent upgrade for SGS2 owners, but I seriously cannot see any point in a GS3 o... moreThe S4 is only i bit taller than s3.. Otherwise it is narrower and slimmer. It has smaller dimentions even from the htc one that has a 0.3 smaller screen. So don't say it is going into the note territory! It is the smallest 5 inch phone with the largest battery. HTC one almost had me with the design and front speakers. But if i eventually deside to swap my S2 it will now be only for s4.
AnonD-26, 15 Mar 2013Same ugly plastic like s 3...not happy with this s 4. HTC One definitely knocks you out.dont u know diff bt polycarbonate n plastic.... shame dont ever speak abt a mobile.... htc one s waste of money..
Come on guys stop complaining. This is the best smartphone out there( i believe). What else u expected a flying phone? Or a phone that can print money?
First of all it has AMOLED screen (that don't hurt your eyes)
Second all the features you need
Third battery lasts for a day
All those powerful CPU, but in a real world performance, it make no different than s3 or s2.
one funny thing,samsung fans keep bashing sammy on the cheap plastic case but when they see the htc one ,they say its just aluminium body,...no wake up its what u never had.fyi htc phones dont need plactic covers,why do ppl care so much about slimness when they are going to put on a chubby case anyway,one more 13 grams extra on the one wont kill you,breasts and balls are way heavier we still carry them about. s4 smoked already htc one all the way.anyway sammy has copied ir blaster,everyone should know that
same Phone. From every brand. can predicted what will come.
Later on, all phone come wit 8 core, next 16 core.. bla bla bla bla..
But Can it Run Crysis 3? that most important thing. since it 8 core ya? nothing.
It seem just yesterday we are introduced with quad core (and I'm still using N8).. Octa-core?! Non can stop Samsung's momentum..
The Galaxy S4 doesn't have good nor great looks, and all it's functions can be done with any other flagship.
ow my god , lucky there are phone manufactures that make good looking phone's like the Sony Z and are inventive !
This phone is made to Function...
Very impressed with all those ideas...
Bottom line.. It's all the matter of preferences...
Great looks but non functional...
Good looks and latest innovative ways to date...
Damn Octa-core phone, this phone is amasing, too nice all the good belongs to it,super cool specs, I give it 10/10 . I like it. Its a must have, but I am sidelining with Galaxy Note II
