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
Anonymous, 28 Mar 2013who in their right mind would get htc one over the Galaxy S4? GS4 has SO MUCH MORE FEATURES. O... moreWho in the right mind would choose htc one over this plastic phone u ask? 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.
for those who complaining and trolling the S4 they just can't accept the true that samsung made the best smartphone until now ok it's not the best design but its features are overkill cheers haters ;)
Galaxy S4, best looking phone to date and the most feature rich phone ever produced. Thank you Samsung. You keep pushing mobile boundaries! Thanks for such an awesome company like you.
lol check this video at 7 min and have a look who air gesture really work in real life...
Most of the time not working other not doing things as you like the other meaningless like with moving around images!!! why the hell any one need that? ah I got it because you maybe eating a meal and you don't want to touch the screen so you know to not get it dirty, but lol what about running the application can I do it without touching the screen!!!!
i phone 5
Aluminum body looks cool but is easy to scratch
Proprietary connector, incompatible with previous-gen accessories (needs adapter)
The new display is not proportionally bigger, but only taller
Unadapted apps run letterboxed due to the unusual resolution
nano-SIM support only
Apple Maps app not up to scratch
No USB Mass Storage mode
No FM radio
No stereo speakers
No microSD card slot
No NFC connectivity (though that may be nitpicking)

samsung galaxy s4, design is a bit played out by now......how do you come to this conclusion about a phone that has changed its design slighty after 12month but not slate apple about its non change of design for 2 years and only a slight difference a year after that?
Looks doesn't matter for me even if its a glass or "cheap" plastic or tin can. All i am hungry for is performance and features and S4 has all i want.
Samsung Galaxy S4 FTW !!!!!
Did you check the resolution chart shot?
2000 LPH which means 5.3 megapixels of absolute resolution. That is not 13 megapixels, which was expected since we're talking about smartphone cameras.
who in their right mind would get htc one over the Galaxy S4? GS4 has SO MUCH MORE FEATURES. Oh look i have an alumnimum phone, software sucks but it's still aluminum meh..
Being a WP lover, I love Lumias and also I am a Windows fanboy. Here, I like this phone as well. Great features packed in a hand instrument. Everything is excellent, just the build quality :-/ I would appreciate it if they would have made their flagship with aluminium instead of plastic. Just its look makes me stop buying it although I got the money to own around 20's at a time :D
Just will try it once :)
., 28 Mar 2013This phone sucks. It's made for masses, people with no identity..But we cant judge how people select their phones. Not everyone was born to stand out, but quite the opposite, most people in this world are trying to FIT IN, and then its good to borrow the identity of the crowd, and if Samsung can play on peoples need to identify themselves with others, to be part of something, then they can sell that many more phones.
Identity comes at a price, its not the easiest path to walk. Some 4-5 years ago i would laugh quietly at grown up men in Converse AllStars shoes, now i use them myself. Where does "identity" end, when does it become weird to stand out? Dont cross that line, its ok to have an Xperia or HTC, but if you go to far, like Lumia or BB, then its already weird.
., 28 Mar 2013This phone sucks. It's made for masses, people with no identity..These are the perfect words.
LG Optimus G pro is still better
s4 COPIED DUAL VIDEO, Q TRANSLATOR, Q-REMOTE
i believe this year for the koreans SAMSUNG & LG
., 28 Mar 2013This phone sucks. It's made for masses, people with no identity..i agreee with you.. on top of that, its the ugliest phone on the market.
a so called flagship that looks cheaper than a feature phone.
samsung's just riding the wave with android.. we'll see samsung's true skill when we see what they do with tizen OS (likely not much)
Good cam, i like it, but it makes no miracles over the Xperia Z. I wonder what it will be in real life usage, because the best cam i had on a phone was with the Note 2, but the Note 2 was also the one to produce most failed shots under not optimal conditions, while the Z has never failed me yet. I think Samsungs cam software is good only under optimal conditions, and this may be a problem for S4 as well. Great synthetic performance but low practial performance.
I dont mean to troll anyway, i be honest enough to say that theres no way i would consider an S4, i already had my dose of samsung the half year i had Note 2. Still, i like to compare the cams of S4 and Z, same Sony sensor and everything, fair enough i hope =)
QUOTE " Samsung galaxy s4 will be as revolutionary as t.v's when they went from black and white to colour "
BIG CLAIM !
I am not so sure ! or very sure and NO NO NO
