., 28 Mar 2013This phone sucks. It's made for masses, people with no identity..Yeah because we all know having an identity equals buying a phone with fat bezels like HTC one or Xperia z. I hate Samsung as much as you but the others don't even try, so don't be quick to praise them. I mean *really* HTC? A 4mpixel camera? Or *really* -Sony- a washed out TFT coming from early 2000s? What were you thinking to put such components on flagship devices?
Samsung may go cheap on build quality but never sacrifices from thing that matter the most (the camera or the screen) that ought to count for something...

Any software trick or feature u will create in a phone today, tomorrow one or more developer will imitate it easily in an app, & u will find in the google play available for all android users. The real thing is to develop the hardware, then to pack it in a premium stunning design.
Well, lets confess that nowadays the differences are not so big & tangible between the flagships of each brand. However, i still insist that the design, build material, & feelings in the hands are creating the real difference. Iphone is poorer than the s4 & some other androids if we compared the sheets of specs, but iphone is still selling massively because of its look & its premuim build marterial. For me, i will not die if i mess the new bunch of software features & tricks the samsung provided in the s4, but really i will die if i have an ugly shape phone in my hand that can be easily duplicated by any chinese unknown companies & selling it in cheapset prices.

Its probably a good thing that you do not know what other people are thinking about you.

Don't do that.
Sony Xperia Z made a little spark
HTC One lit up a match
Samsung Galaxy S 4 made inferno look like Siberia
Barometer, thermometer, hygroscope
These three hardware novelties solely would be sufficient to persuade me to buy this phone, but in the review......, not a word about it!!
Do I live in another universe?
Anonymous, 28 Mar 2013Good cam, i like it, but it makes no miracles over the Xperia Z. I wonder what it will be in r... moreWe hope to see your great hobby photography with the stuff you're talking about.
The only Problem i have with the Galaxy s 4 ..is do i want the White one or the Black one .
Hope the next phone S5 will be bigger, say 6 inch, and the next one S6 will be even bigger - 7inch, and so on. The bigger is the better, definitely.
anyone that suggest this is the same as the galaxy s3 is clearly wrong, this phone has been redesigned from top to bottom, the shell may look similar, but it is clearly different and can be seen, if your after looks alone, then buy the HTC or iPhone, if you want sheer power then galaxy s4 is the obvious choice

Well, maybe the people who are fed up with samsung's dull design, crappy build quality, with a bunch of new so-called features with each next galaxy? Half of those features will be left unused, another half - to brag to others.
I'm pretty sure that things such as direct speech translation (whatever stupid name sammy put on it) will not work as intended 99% of the time. Scrolling with air gestures? I saw them, it's slower than doing it the normal way, no thanks. These gimmicks are just software tweaks to fill up the phone's list and to impress the masses with "a bunch of new features".
Htc one, on the other hand, has some new hardware improvements, which are real value for money. I'm talking about stereo speakers, and a new type of camera. Not to mention it's premium build and feel. Right now, i see no flagship which could compete with one (from my point of view, of course), that's why I'm getting it.
