I will prefer to Xperia Z than this.
- Camera n video is same
- Processor is no much different in daily usage where Xperia Z is zero lag too. so,octa core is just gimmick
- i hate Amodel display.Xperia Z's screen is look natural and brilliant colors
- other features on SGS4 is just gimmick and not really be used
- Boring design on SGS4 compare to awesome Xperia Z's design
- SGS4 not water n dust proof
For me, choise a smartphone is not only has a powerfull spec, but has a unique and beautifull design too...
Mu5kI, 20 Mar 2013With what the scene of Camera describes with this unit, the pictures which win hearts are prod... morehows does the xperia z have better camera? the pics on the GS4 are more detailed and sharper, example is the 2nd pic from the bottom row, now zoom in to the building advertising 3 watches, and lock it for sony z and GS4. You can tell the watches and the names is more clear and detailed on the GS4, and its blurry and less detailed on the sony xperia z. Look at the name "PIERRE KUNZ" and its hard to read from sony xperia Z.
Yeah after one month all galaxy user change they launcher because of bad UI and in xda.developers most of samsung user request sense 4 launcher, sense 4 clock, sense 5 clock and sense 4 rom port, sense 3.5 rom port,,,, so i ask why do you buy samsung if you want htc software,,,, hahahahahhaha
With what the scene of Camera describes with this unit, the pictures which win hearts are produced by the Xperia Z :-D
dont know if the end-units will remain the same but till yet, I would obviously prefer Z over s4!!!
Mobile Tronics, 20 Mar 2013Your stupid. Its a dual quad core and only 1 quad works at one time. The snap Dragon is slowe... moreyou are very very stupid search video on youtube about one x galaxy s3 and note 2 benchmark you will see one x beat them,,,,, hahahahahhaa
All HTC quad core beat samsung quad core so far,,,,
htc sense, 20 Mar 2013I see htc one antutu benchmark in youtube about 26000 and i see galaxy s4 antutu about 27000,,... moreDidnt u read the article? They were both benched with the snapdragon 600 chipset... slightly higher clock speed on the S4 hence slightly higher scores.
Guys - look at the camera samples... Galaxy S4 is superior in every photo sample and this is not the final unit.
Could someone tell me one thing: Sony makes camera sensors for both devices, why can't they tweak their own sensor so it makes at least photos comparable in quality to the competition that uses the same thing?
Awesome review ... S4 is the ultimate phone available :) .... can't wait ....
billydef, 20 Mar 2013as an xperia Z user, i want some features from S4 in my xperia Z. i'll stick with my xperia Z ... moreI think Sony doing well with xperia z. perhaps xperia with snapdragon 800 later on this year.Honestly Xperia z impress me with geek bench mark against S4 and htc one with dated chipset, it seems that even screen pixels arrangement looks better and more sharper than S4 but with low contrast and washed out colors.
Hope Sony will bring back something later on this year something that smoke S4 and htc one
htc sense, 20 Mar 2013I see htc one antutu benchmark in youtube about 26000 and i see galaxy s4 antutu about 27000,,... moreYour stupid. Its a dual quad core and only 1 quad works at one time. The snap Dragon is slower and still would not be as power efficient as the exynos. Nice try htc fan boy but your htc one will sell Like the htc one x
htc sense, 20 Mar 2013I see htc one antutu benchmark in youtube about 26000 and i see galaxy s4 antutu about 27000,,... moreexynos version's benchmarks are never out yet... no one has tested it yet... the device is still not 100% ready for review... how u can claim that it lost to htc one... the device shown here is snapdragon variant, not the exynos one... exynos is expected to outperform snapdragon 600... also every time if u do the test, the score will be a slight different n thats y i dont care if someone is over other wid a minor mark but yes if it has major mark difference then definitely device has an upper hand performance... htc one is still lagging behind lg optimus G pro wid same processor n clock speed n also same version of jellybean... what is reason here that lg outperformes htc one?? its software n hardware play an important role in deciding benchmarks, not only cpu chip n gpu...
htc sense, 20 Mar 2013I see htc one antutu benchmark in youtube about 26000 and i see galaxy s4 antutu about 27000,,... moreDid you read the article until the end? The S4 benchmarked here is the US version, it runs the same Snapdragon 600 like the One, but at a higher clock speed. The one does indeed beat the Octa Core Exynos in most benchmarks
Oh come on...when you're in cold countries you'll probably prefer plastic over the (freezing, or static) feel of metal anyway. Samsungs and LGs from Korea (where temperatures get down to -15 or even -20 degrees C in winter) are all made out of plastic, as are Nokias from Finland (this hardly needs further explanation) with their polycarbonate bodies, compared to Taiwan for example, where HTC is from and temperatures rarely drop below 10C...of course, the type of finish may be subject to personal preference, but honestly, bashing plastic?
Very nice preview. The S4 is no doubt the ultimate smartphone for now, except the high price Sammy asks for it, especially in Vietnam where about half of all the units are shipped from.
LoveAndroid, 20 Mar 2013On the other hand, my friend HTC One X lag like crap rather than my S3! So how's that?you lie... i have test both s3 and one x performance open an apps and back to main home screen htc one x faster than s3,,, s3 still load some shortcut when go back to main screen .... hahahaha
I have 2 questions,
1- Before buying the S4 how can I know which chipset is it using Exynos 5410 Octa or Snapdragon 600?
2- Is contacts list still black? or I can change it in 4.2.2?

its got removeble battery. when your phone hang just take out the battery and put it back. also got memorycard slot. you dont lose data if your phone brick and need to reinstall software. oneX and Xperia doesn't have removeble battery and mcard slot. shame.
