I got the phone a few weeks back, and had an S2 before - I don't really agree with "outdated" designs. Phones are about the performance, and in a time when most of us wrap them in protective cases, does it really matter at this stage? Granted, it might have been important when you could drop your Nokia 3310 and leave a crack in the ground, but at this stage it's becoming less and less important.
I love the phone! I've never made as much use of a smartphone before, and even simple built-in apps like the story album have made the phone a little more personable than before - I normally remove everything I can before starting :/
Up the S4!
A main disadvantage of the S4 is a "played out design". Yet the iPhone 5 which has basically never changed since the first one doesn't have this disadvantage. Double standards there I think. Most would pick functionality over design of the phones they choose.
Regarding the GPS, when the reviewer said "The barometer, however, can speed up GPS locks even without a data connection." Does he/she mean that we need to install a third party application for it (the built-in barometer) to work?
why does it not respond immediately after I open it from idle status? though i just got it 2 days ago
Is No FM radio really classed as a main disadvantage? I would use it on my current phone but as i never have my headphones with me (wired), you cant use it anyway. Its a disadvantage on every other phone to not being able to use the radio without headphones.
The new photo gallery layout is terrible. Please change back or give us a way how we can.
Iam not satisfied with my S4 at all.
Air gesture function worked for few days and stopped working. Overheating is a big issue. Not worth money.
anonymous , 06 Sep 2013The S4 is an excellent phone no doubt but the screen's too fragile. Surely you have never tried the iphs or blindly saying it to bash the great phone, their screens are way too fragile than SGS4s' screens LOL!
