AnonD-106548, 19 Apr 2013What's wrong with plastic really??! Does it cuts your hands or what? Why do you people like to... moreNo doubt this is a very well spec'ed phone. It is the impressiveness of the phone that makes many complain about the plastic casing. It is like buying the best spec'ed Ferrari with a plastic interior.
I really hate it when the shiny plastic gets slightly oily - feels yucky. For that matter, I do not like glass finishing as well. Metallic matte finishing is the best.
Apart from the look and feel, there is some functional advantage of aluminum casing. Check out the drop test between the S3 and iPhone.
no radio for s4.,is it possible to download fm radion from applications
DQ, 19 Apr 2013What is a Hygroscope? "main features" ;-)http://lmgtfy.com/?q=Hygroscope
Its design is lyk s3 but hey guys using aluminium in it would Hav made it more costly ..... But we all loved the software tricks of s4 which the htc cant even offer..... we love the s4 but not its DESIGN :p
Don't fix what isn't broken. Samsung's exterior design is pure function. It fits the controls and the great 5" display as minimally as possible. HTC One already looks cluttered with its speakers on the front, design lines on the back and unnecessary beats audio branding. Functional is timeless whereas trying to be fashionable looks bad sooner than you think.
Anonymous, 02 Apr 2013Troll or not, I say the truth, android has icon tap tap like symbiam 20 years ago, come on guy... moreWin 8 (the OS with missing Start button), or the Windows Phone 8? Please confirm. Win 8 is for computers, while WP8 is the mobile platform.
FYI, you cannot even attach multiple file types of email attachments into a single email on WP8. Try it yourself. See if you can attach a word docu and an excel file together in a single email? So much for a smart phone OS which can't even do simple task like this.
WP8 is the worst mobile OS I ever used TBH.
AnonD-131253, 18 Apr 2013I dont know about you. For me S 1,2,3 feeling like cheap plastic. And now the S4 goes the same... moreWhat's wrong with plastic really??! Does it cuts your hands or what? Why do you people like to carry much heavier materials like glass or metal? Don't you know polycarbonate or plastic are more resistance to scratches? But anyways, if plastics is hitting you right in the nerves, go back to your more "premium" phones then. Someone else who appreciate S4 will take your place in queue for the phone.
AnonD-111304, 19 Apr 2013my dear friend, I challenge you to open the back cover and push the back cover on both far end... moreWhy not you try using a hammer to hammer the glass or aluminum to see which last longer? Your challenge is moot.
Tom-Helge, 18 Apr 2013What you feel in the hand doesn't say anything about what the material is made out of. Yes,... moremy dear friend, I challenge you to open the back cover and push the back cover on both far ends each by an angle of 60 degree, and let's see the strength of poly carbonate, MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU
What is a Hygroscope?
Samsung? That was the hardware supplier for Apple chips, which got out of deals in favor of another Asian manufacturer?
Considering most people use covers, sleeves, and/or protective cases on their phone. Why is it a big deal about the look/design of the S4 when the back will be covered?
I think you are trying to convince yourself of that,,it isn't really is it??
But of course, 810 mark is still slow compared to 100~ on PC/laptops.
Retail unit is better !!!
love the details on photos
the eco frienly box (not the color :P)
the benchmarks showing slightly improved performance
can it swim!
S4 have the best sound quality and definetly the best "stereo crosstalk"! If it had a FM-radio I would definetly buy S4!
