Wow, honestly, once again, I have to admit that some of GS4 features are great. And before I experience my self, I bit regret that One only use 4MP sensor. I am still going to buy One because it offers the best design and built material, so that my sacrificing toward hardware and features mean nothing...
Samsung should learn from other... they have to improve the product design... and worse in S4 no radio,... come on Samsung.. radio is a must in india :P
everything nearly perfect except the body made of plastic make it look like cheap device and not high classes like Iphone5 or HTC One or even Xperia Z.
For those of you who chose form (aesthetics) over functionality then it goes to show you're just a show off.
Luckily form and function comes closely knit in some of the flagships nowadays. For me the S 4 isn't good looking but it isn't ugly either. To each his own.
no octa - no money - no excuses sammy
will not settle for quad core and bs lte when we dont even need it. most people use wifi. people are no dummies to throw away their money
I like this phone a lot. I'm sold on the Super Amoled.
One thing I noticed is.. the camera looks good, it's really good but.. the oversharpening algorithm is really too aggressive. I hope they fix this with an update.
Also the review claims the colors are a little too saturated, I'd say the grass is undersaturated, making the pictures look a little liveless. The SGS3 took more saturated (especially green, red, yellow) pictures and it looked better, they looked so alive and nice.
Both of my issues with the camera can be easily fixed with a software update (or adding an option for color saturation on pictures) and even with these it's still the best camera on a smartphone, second only to Nokia Pureview (I have to give it to Nokia).
Teknoholik, 28 Mar 2013most of the disadvantages r unnecessarythey had to put those otherwise the anti-Samsung people will throw a fit. LOL
Very good review can't wait to get my hands on this phone, it will be a massive change for me as i'm using Nokia N8, it will a complete different ball game when i start using this awesome phone, Harry up and come out :)
Anonymous, 28 Mar 2013You dont understand crowd mentality, i guess you are one of those eccentric people i was talki... moreSebastian, you are giving advice here? Ok, for a guy who bought and used the Note II and complained across forums on how terrible AMOLED screen is & hated almost all feature aspects, and who now has an Xperia Z and tells how terrible the S IV's screen is compared to the TFT screen, you don't consider yourself eccentric?
For an anonymous jackanapes who obsessed with the Xperia Z being the ultimate smartphone, you are sourgraping again in these Samsung related forums? Now you wish people not to be buying the S IV because it would mean your XZ to be inferior?
You are a kibitzer. Cellular smartphones aren't exclusive status symbols. That was what you had in mind for the XZ with you wishing it should be selling in the thousands only. Here comes the S IV with the great set of new features with a nice S AMOLED 1080p screen and a target of 100 million units to be sold. What? You would hate everyone else outgunning your "exclusive" Xperia Z?
Stop advising us about eccentricity. You aren't the right person to do so. Anyone has the right to buy an S IV.
Surprisingly not worth upgrading from note2 to s4. Practically they don't differ much, whatever you need to do with your phone, note2 will do just fine, and s4 seems so slightly better that i wonder if i will notice the difference. Let's hope note3 brings some better really useful features.
SO CHOKE FULL OF AWESOME FEATURES!! Samsung Thank yOU! - no other phones got air touch, smart options, thermometer, barometer, etc!
The international version (I9500) with Exynos 5 Octa SoC will support LTE on all 20 bands, it's confirmed.
Btw, I think this is an amazing phone, fan boys can't accept that S4 it's the Smartphone king for now.
It seems like history is repeating itself, HTC has the looks, GS4 has everything else.
