Still gonna stick with my s3. Not worth the money to upgrade to s4. S3 is still a very powerful device and its speed is still snappy. Maybe il just wait for s5.
One thing i really like about the SGS4 is the white and light grey menus... looks a lot nicer that the black and dark grays.
Hopefully we see this on the note 2 soon.
Apart from that, the SGS4 looks like a beast.... keeping the other fanbois pretty quiet :-)
I would love to see a review between the note 2 and the S4
Thanks. Great comparison. I'm just missing an audio chip comparison - is the S4 packing the Wolfson DAC?
The S4 looks like a fantastic device, but not so much better than my S3 to justify all the money I would have to shell out to get it. The 2600 mAh battery is a non factor since I have a 4500 mAh extended battery on my S3. A lot of the software features on the S4 will make their way to the S3 down the road. Also, at least for now, the S3 has a lot more accessories available to it. Both are great devices.
popye, 11 Apr 2013Wow. People buy smartphones because of benchmark scores?Yeah. It gives you a pretty good idea on how it will handle demanding games compared to other phones.
Samsung literally cheated all its users by SGS3,though its a good phone still it was a mere update over SGS2 whereas the SGS4 brings a lot of update over the SGS3. They showcased the software tricks to market SGS3(which eventually came into SGS2/Note) just difference was in the processor (Quad vs Dual).In this case,Its a very big update which brings 2 GB of ram,13mp cam,quad core as well as software tweaks and all. I am also a SGS3 user and I've no issues at all with it..its working great but still somehow I feel that the SGS3 is not what it should be. Samsung should look into this thing. They are just making products according to the market competition not thinking about its users.Anyways S4 is a pretty good work again...Sammy rocks...
I think Samsung could have easily got away with not making the phone smaller if the design was different. I mean all galaxy phones look exactly the same. No one would notice if you were holding the S4 or the galaxy grand. The S line should have their special aesthetic appeal, just like the xperia z and htc one do. If that happens, it'll absolutely rule the market.
Joe, 10 Apr 2013Definitely the S4 is a great smartphone and Samsung made a big achievement by making a bigger ... moreGood points, tks for that. Was a bit disappointed about the FM radio, other than that S4 looks solid. Time to retire my ZTE Blade with 5000 in benchmark Pi and a scary 48000 in sunspider.
Definitely the S4 is a great smartphone and Samsung made a big achievement by making a bigger screen bigger battery more powerful CPU more sensors in a smaller thinner and lighter phone but still my S3 works great and I would like to mention a very important thing that I really care about the storage memory, I got 11.25 g in my S3 over 9.65 g in the S4 sow we're talking about 1.6 g less also I really like the Fm tuner not only to listen to Fm stations but getting the chance to record any program or any song beside all that the S3 loudspeaker is more powerful by 5 db and the position of that speaker on top of the phone unlike the S4 makes the sound louder when using it in landscape mode for video games or any other video because our hand will be behind the speaker Even in portrait mode when using the speakerphone in a crowd environment because I had that bad experience with the S2. Concerning the camera Fov definitely the S3 is more practical specially when using the camera indoor. The full HD screen is great but but we're not watching a blu-ray movie on the phone and to download any full HD movie or video clip or even recording a full HD video with our camera will take lots of memory storage that's why I think the HD screen of the S3 is more then enough
I love my s3 but I won't be getting the s4, waiting for the note 3 baby! ;-)
In terms of features, the s4 is simply mindblowing. Nd that mouthwatering 1080p SuperAMOLED display is really a geek's dreams.
Indeed the s4 will be the most popular smartphone of 2013! I can't wait to get it!
