Seriously though.. how does glass and weak maleable aluminum fit the quality part of build quality
Wow...did not expect so good audio measurements!! Even better than s3 international version. Does it have a wolfson dac, or have they managed to turn a snapdragon into audio nirvana?
Camera, audio, benchmarks, screensize, small beezel, weight, removeable battery, memory card..
Seems like Samsung beat every other flagship on most counts this time also. Liked the htc one first, but as I get to know her..not so much!
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 you feel in the hand doesn't say anything about what the material is made out of.
Yes, Polycarbonate is feeling like plastic, but it's still Polycarbonate witch is extremely strong.
I think gsmarena needs to perform a test about microphone quality with and without headphone.
Harry, 03 Apr 2013Am I the only person ever to think that the Galaxy S4 looks really pretty?
Then again, I th... moreMe too.. actually when i see pictures wherein Z One and s4 are on side by side, s4 looks to be d prettiest and more premium thanks to d slimmer bezzel and d screen almost eats d front panel..
Back panel - z and one outshnes s4

After all, it doesn't come anywhere near the premium feel of a Sony Xperia Z, let alone the HTC One.
Anyway, the specs is good. But the design ruin it all.

Samsung Galaxy S III and Galaxy S IV use Polycarbonate that is actually more expensive to make than cheap beer can aluminum.
There is a reason why Polycarbonate is used in bullet proof windows.

Anonymous, 18 Apr 2013The phone designer at Samsung must be the easiest job in the world. He/she only needs to come ... moredude who designed S3 got fired...Samsuck said we don't need ya no more -we'll take it from here...for many years to come ;)
The phone designer at Samsung must be the easiest job in the world. He/she only needs to come up with a design and Samsung will use it over and over and over and over and over and over again.
Looking at all reviews, it seems that S4 i the best overall; in terms of Camera, processor, etc. The only low meaningful low point is the build material. I will buy it if I have money.
skz, 17 Apr 2013that what i wAnt galaxy s4 do not buy iphone5 it hangs iphone5 dont hange, its server confrigration problem,but lumia is best option to gs4.because look wise gallexy series just copy/paste.huuuunnnnnnn
GSMArena's review: S4 is a best device ever in every parts
Samsung: Nice Job! We will keep supporting your company
Looks like a fantastic device, but not so much better than my GS3 to justify getting it off contract. My GS3 on Jellybean and an extended 4800 mAh battery is pretty good.
On the AT&T website, click on details for the Samsung Galaxy S4 and you will see under the Music category it lists "Built in FM Radio" requires use of headphones. Does this mean that the phone will have FM radio after all?
I dont get it why people are bashing the "plastic" backside of the samsung devices.
Its very simple: if you want to offer replacable battery, external sd card and the thin flipcovers you just cannot create non-removable backsides ore aluminum unicasings. Polycarbonate is the best way.
That way samsung offers extremely versatile phones. Period.
