What the hell are these guys thinking???????
Probably bought buy htc/apple
Im really so piss off to turn off/disable all the S App and S features of this phone :)
one can beats s4 in camera..
A lot of good details provided, yet nothing on the SECURITY features. What about SELinux? That is a really important feature that has the potential to be very protective for everyone... yet isn't touched on, identified, reviewed... nothing.
Review of SGS4 from The Verge:
On the design:
"I don't like holding this phone, and I can't overstate how much that informs the experience of using it. It makes an awful first impression, slippery and slimy and simply unpleasant in your hand...
...Everyone I showed the GS4 to frowned and wrinkled their nose as if it smelled bad, before rubbing their fingers on the back of the phone and then handing it back to me — that's the opposite of the standard reaction to HTC’s One, which everyone wants to ogle and hold."
"That's why, when my contract is up in June, I'll probably be casting my lot with HTC instead of Samsung."
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, xperia z might seem to look nice, HTC butterfly is actually better than the z, also the z is not so nice to handle, and if s4 is somewhat similar to S3, then it should be a winner for me. After reading the review, the only thing I have reserve about is the field of view of the video recorder, but it is something that can be resolved with a software update, so no biggie, so when it launches here in my country, its one for me and one for my lovely lady, we both need a new phone.
I don't understand synthetic benchs , xperia Z is much better than nexus 4 (both have a same cpu/gpu) ???
Will buy this phone, but...
Anyone notice audio is still reversed in video recording? The same as in s3. It just stupid HEARING the cars drive to the left, in the video posted in the review, when they actually drive to the right side. Check it out.
Left and right side is mixed up. It's been over a year since s3 came out and still no fix for this obvious faulty firmware.
I stay loyal to Samsung Galaxy product line but what is actually the key feature of S4? I can see many nice features in the phone but which one is the one that makes you to buy it?
Seems that SGS4 can't match SGS3 hype.
Gizmodo review: Better, but not best
All Things D review: Good, but not great, step up
Anyone sensing the pattern here?
What a crazy benchmark result.. i will think again to buy it or not, til now i am very pleased with my z10
Galaxy s4 Has one minus and the company to cover this disadvantage has put S Viev case in the Box.....
(I live in Tajikistan) Sales have begun here today...
My Galaxy SII fell so many times but it's PLASTIC body was the reason for it NOT to brake!
It may look cheep but it helps it survive
(and I have never used any covers to protect it)
Pretty much the only complaint is design and most people get a case anyways, regardless of the phone. I like the S4 because I believe it will have the largest developer community and the best hardware overall, which is all that matters to me with an Android device
Even this glowing cant cover up the truth, comments here are far more negative than when SGS3 review came out. Fact is, other phones have caught up and have even leapfrogged Samsung in terms of build quality.
No matter how much the justification for plastic, it doesn't explain why Samsung themselves are now considering a metal SGS3, as well as a move to metal on future phones. That is simply an admission on Samsung's part.
Samsung user, 22 Apr 2013I'm huge Samsung fan and Samsung user I'm already used all of the models in samsung,.. But ... moreread the terms n conditions first... the 15% cashback offer is only for customers wid credit cards of standard chartard bank or icici... u can get it in 0 downpayment, 0% interest... and the price is dealers's price, not MRP.... MRP written in box is 43000 while dealers offering it for 35-36K depending upon market n place where u live... dont misguide urself n other people...
Again for the people who cannot understand the reason for plastic backside:
1 ability for integrated flipcover and s-view cover which is even more functional!
2 replaceble battery
3 external micro sd
If you want to offer this as a company you JUST CANNOT USE ALUMINIUM....
Im actually already laughing at those people who dislike plastic to the extreme and buy the most hideous PLASTIC protection cases for their precious aluminium phones.
Soon i have a beautifull s4 with a extremely usefull s-view cover and a free 64gb micro-sd AND probably the most capable phone at this moment!
