This phone has everything MOST PEOPLE need. FM radio and waterproof (IP certified) may be a need for some people. But as far as phone sales go, waterproof phones never really sold very well. Millions more phones that people like are NOT waterproof. And even the latest non FM capable flagships are meeting sales expectations. What some people are doing are citing niche market requirements and passing them off as absolute necessities.

We do not recommend the Samsung fans to buy this phone. As there is no other difference in our Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3 except for the screen size difference, we not recommend this phone for our long lasted Samsung fans.
