Internet radio brings me closer to my country even I am overseas. I can be updated with the news from my country.
Can the built in radio give you news from your country when you are in a foreign land?
I like freedom, and I don't like to be tied to the messy wired headset just to listen to local radio stations.
Quality bluetooth headset with FM radio has better sounds than the messy wired headset giving restricted movement.
Well, I got mine in Phillipines and for me it is still better than its predecessors.
[deleted post]Well I never have used FM radio in my phones but many people in the comments I see that wasn't that which is kind of odd for me but that didn't mean they are idiots for wanting a future that has been on galaxies and many other phones before except IPhones I think. Oddly enough there are many people who choose to buy their phone based on FM radio. Is there any flagship this year that still uses FM radio. ?
Tcool, 11 Apr 2014Why do you insist that it was copied from Apple when it was originally from Motorola? Not App... moreI see that you are to brand attached to Samsung. You know Samsung totally copied Apple's Touch ID the year Apple released it and at the same place on the home button. What is odd is that Samsung made fun of Apple for it and then they came up with a half working bad copy of Touch ID themselves. Please read your comments quietly and look what you are saying . I talked about how they copied Touch ID and your only claim was no no Apple is bad. And what is funny is that you basically said " It is okay for Samsung to copy and nobody should make fun of them but if Apple copies we should point it out and bash them. " And the truth is that Touch ID has no resemblance whatsoever with the Atrix sensor which was a POS sensor but what is striking is that Samsung's scanner was basically ripped off from the 5s. I can bring many arguments and all of Samsung's loyal customers will divert the matter itself even though you know the truth and don't want to accept it and will start insulting and bashing Apple just to get rid of the topic that Samsung copies Apple too much. Anyways I probably talked more than I should have just remember bashing/insulting someone for the device they own because you don't like it won't make your device better than the others.

Tcool, 11 Apr 2014Because built in radio cannot give you international radio stations.
Built in radio is tied t... morein counties where the phone internet is cheap and available every where lacking the built-in fm radio is not that problem,but in some many other countries using the internet radio will cost a lot,and in many occasions u will be in areas where there is no network coverage,here the built-in fm radio will come in handy,u will still be able to hear the news,music..etc
i don't care about international radio stations ,i only listen to my local fm stations.
what u consider as messy wired headset is in fact the most used way to enjoy phone music,videos and games,i know u will say Bluetooth headsets with built-in radio,but sorry i don't like them,i don't like to charge my phone and to charge its headset,i liked samsung phones ability to record when using the wired fm radio.
samsung removes the built-in fm radio not because it aims to improve our lives but it aims to make us pay money for something already free.
I cannot believe people make so much fuss about FM radio, while you have playstore to download hundreds of radio apps for free.
A sport phone, without Fm radio. I can't imagine what the stupid mistake from samsung.
