Plastic seems to be a "problem" only when Samsung make these polycarbonate phones, because nobody complained about the plastic disaster Xperia S and nobody complain about the plastic Lumia 920 and nobody complained about the plastic HTC One X! But many Sonyfans and Nokiafans and HTCfans complained about the fragile iPhone 4S made of "strong" glass, and almost every iPhone 4S user use a case today to protect their expensive phone!

gs4 is d most appealing for me for d front panel :D.. :D
[deleted post]It is LTE period and that wouldn't change the fairness. Well Sony could've used the newer chips, but as usual took something more dated...Though this time not as bad as usual.
As the review and users point out the Z actually looks like the older more washed out"less accurate colors". S4 screen is superior in every way.
Why can't everyone just grasp and move on. That doesnt mean you have to like it more. Just accept facts and move on
AnonD-55206, 01 Apr 2013Yeah s4 beat Z in term of performance ( but by the time ) S4 also beat Z in term of watching ... moreThat's understandable. You don't have to want the S4 just because it may be better. IF everyone only had the S4 "even if it was out of this world better" there would be no diversity, choice, or any goods like that.
Yeah s4 beat Z in term of performance ( but by the time )
S4 also beat Z in term of watching and browser
S4 beat Z in term of image quality but less option
But I still I'm happy with my beauty Z

Hi. I wish to know something here.
Can the Narrow field of view in Galaxy S4 camera be made wide through 3rd party software?
SIV wiped the floor with all competitors.
I mean even if Sony and HTC and Apple and Motorola and LG they all unit to make a phone, this phone will not beat SIV.
In all honesty the S4 is by no means ugly. When it comes to picking up the phone and looking at the front the it is actually much more appealing. Not only that, but that Amoled display makes it that much better. When it comes to the back....yes the Z looks a little nicer. But Sony was using the plastic before and nobody was mad. Even when HTC one had the same plastic, but the Samsung one was still the cheap one. Go figure.
And the big thing with the design and the whole humans thing is the rounded shape and corners, display, and software/optimization. It's curves sit in your hand nicer while its rounded edges are easier to work around. Then its slimmer than most and overall more compact. Even more so than just about any othher 5 incher, and more so than many smaller screen devices as well. Its just easier and more comfortable to hold and use.
Then you move on to the much more superior and prettier display. Makes things a lot better. Then the faster chips, latest Android, stronger optimizations, and more user intuitive features all make for the phone working for you. That's the whole idea. It's designed to fit in and work "better and for you ie humans". Even if it does sound a little odd lol.
It's not to say that nobody else is doing good or that the beauty of others are meaningless. Or that even some can't come into the same playing field. Just that Samsung is making sure the phone just works better for you. And if you want a good looking device that doesnt have to be the best...Go for original Droid Razr. Sexiest phone yet and still ok chipset.

But anyway, based on your comments, I guess you are one of those who prefer design and feel rather than performance. Too bad not everyone thinks like you do.
Guys xperia z is best value for money. At 37k it's giving u more than u can imagine. S4 will easily cross 42k at launch. And why are we creating hype of camera audio quality processor huh? Being a normal user and differences not that big honestly tell me how much does it matter? I would personally give preference to looks not hardware as far as differences are nominal. But ya display is something which can't be ignored. S4 has superior display than z but its not that bad which can govern your choice among 2. I am using xperia sl and galaxy note.
