a nice try by sammy, but some old itches are left to be scratched 1.dated design - sammy should consider a more mordern, dynamic design
2.material selection for the body is poor, it is a hell of a fingerprint magnet.....atleast the finish should have been matte....
3.one thing I personally dislike about samsung is its logo.....it looks downroght cheap....they shpuld adopt a more futuristi mordern logo as soon as possible...
AnonD-48446, 29 Mar 2013I'm upgrading from the SGII in the next 6 mounths or so. Not having an FM radio, is a big deal... morejust download TuniIn Radio! its the only thing you need, trust me on that one! i dont even know if my S3 has a Radio because i only use TuneInRadio it really is that good!

Yes when S-AMOLED screen is set on its original color, it is different from S-LCD3, over saturated color which I hate it so much like in the SGS3 I ever used for a while. But try to adjust the RGB setting like GSMA told u to make the color turn to normal, you have to have a very scientific eyes to differentiate it...
HTC one it is.. Samsung galaxy s range RIP.. Galaxy grand or mega or s, what difference does it make.. They all look the same, for once people will start taking grand to be s4, looks the same, CHEAP..!!
When its not exquisite, its not in..!!
umm....... Ok im going to tell you why is that the s4 is plastic.... bacause when the phone gets hot., the plastic didnt absorb too much heat. But if your phone is made of metal it absorbs heat... and you will be irritated of that.. So samsung is thinking that if you use your phone for how many hours you will not be irritated. :)

While the... moreI bet no one can differentiate in the non branded or blind test, which one is S-Amoled used in Galaxy4 and S-LCD3 used in HTC One... It is not like S-Amoled vs WVGA screen that easily to be noticed, but this S-Amoled vs S-LCD3 is only scientific fact that meaningless in reality...
Anyone to tell me how many is the amount of S4's free ram after a fresh start? My s3 says in task manager that there is 680/ 836 MB..(1 GB ram...) It is the no lte international version. I'm very curious what the S4 task managar says about its 2 GBs of ram.. sry for bad english..

Samsung aluminium phone > Htc/sony/iphone/lg
It is inevitable ;)
With all my empathy, I can not understand how anyone can hate on the AMOLED screens. While the phone is all around great, its display is probably the coolest single thing in the SGS series, the display and its colors are really viral, usually people see that and ask about it then they buy the phone solely because of the mouthwatering screen. It's really such a joy to just look at, power it on. No LCD can give you that pleasant feeling.

Reason? iPhone 5 and HTC superior build quality, from Samsung's exec's mouth themselves.
Who would you rather believe, the source or some fanboy?
Samsung even had a metal SGS4 prototype, which they loved, but had to settle for plastic cos they couldn't produce enough

When this comes out metal will suddenly be good and premium right? Samsung fanboys make me laugh.
You you forgot to mention the excellent flipcovers, even the new smart-cover.
Another reason to go for polycarbonate so you can use the flipcovers!
No other manufacturer has this (i think)!!
So if you want flip covers/micro-sd/removable battery there is just only one choice.....
People howling about plastics are going to buy a plastic cover for their phones. And more importantly, itís polycarbonate. Nevertheless some people will not understand the fact that there is a reason for Samsung to choose this material. If Samsung would have chosen aluminum with non-removable battery, then people would still have criticized Samsung for not supplying a non-removable battery and a micro SD Card slot. If Samsung would have chosen LCD screen over AMOLED then there will be more people complaining about the LCD screens. FYI: Polycarbonates are more expensive to produce than aluminum and LEDís are pricier than LCDs. So we do get the opportunity of getting a wholesome magnificence over cheaper materials. I do concur with the actuality that the design is a little outmoded by now and HTC has come up with something really outstanding with HTC Oneís design, but people also look for performance. This is not to say that HTC One is a bad performer, but Samsung Galaxy S4 is better in that segment. If only SGS4 would have had a better design, it could have stormed the gate of success without any barriers. Nonetheless, it still has its own benefit if you look at the other side over HTC One. You get a removable battery, micro SD card slot, some good amount of customization over the stock Android, useful software tricks and many more. SGS4ís only competition at this point is HTC one because youíre not going to take your phone for swimming everyday or youíre not going to text confidently while having a shower. SGS4 wins in many situations from H1 in real world; so at the end itís only a matter of personal preference. You can choose Design over performance or a hardcore droid over a good looking phone.
HTC one its really assume . HTC one camera i never seen like this kind of camera .
