Tcool, 07 Jul 2014Go for Huawei.Probably go for that but I still need to consider other brands like Lenovo S series, Asus Zen series or even the Xiaomi's new MI3. Decent spec with good price tag. HTC is good but it is overpriced. The worst thing about smartphones nowadays, if you buy one today they probably sell a new product the next day to replace the one you've bought.
AnonD-259609, 07 Jul 2014In the picture the multi purpose jack is open so how can it be water resistant? Have you ever think of your ear when swimming under the water less than 1 meter?
Your ear is open but it is water resistant.
Anonymous, 06 Jul 2014no FM Radio = limited freedom of the usability of phoneCome on, it's 2014, internet radio is the best.
No need for the built-in radio which is slave to the messy wired headset with limited radio stations to choose from.

Tcool, 06 Jul 2014Hello! This is 2014, who needs radio in a 4G/3G smartphone? What negative point you are tal... moreBuilt in radio is not that big of an expense to install.... Try standing on a lake fishing with hardly and service on ur phone and u want to listen to the radio. U CAN'T ..... But my iPod mini has a radio on it and it works just fine. Now I have to carry two devices with me. That sucks. If I'm at work and my phone have a fm radio, I would be happier. The population in the world is 7.046 billion. So when u say only 1percent would use the radio that's a lot of people.
AnonD-273829, 06 Jul 2014so you mean you wont buy iphone 5s and will go for iphone 4 right, the things you said are cor... moreWell not really. I would go for iPhone 5 over iPhone 4 because Apple puts tons of improvement in the new iPhone. In this case, Samsung only improve some parts in the S5 mini and somehow downgrade some parts. So basically I would go for the S4 mini. I don't really care about the OS update. In 3 to 4 years time I still would have to buy a new phone anyway.
paulmurza, 06 Jul 2014You are misleading people, but I hope you are not that evil to know that. Apple ''manages'' ra... moreYes I know that Apple iOS is a locked system. There isn't much you can customize in an iPhone. Not to mention I would own an Android but not a Samsung. A few years back Samsung was the best but now naah. It's better to go for other brands. Samsung's not worth it.
Anonymous, 06 Jul 2014You're wrong. The IPS LCD screen is much better than any Amoled in every way.
The fingerprint... moreit seems that u still have the old idea about the over saturated colors of the super amoled screen,samsung has improved the color accuracy dramatically and the latest super amoled screen has the most accurate colors in the market.
sony stupidly puts obligatory plastic screen over the glass screen in its phones.
the heart rate monitor is some what a gimmicky feature but its presence in any phone is not a bad thing.(i prefer the fm radio over the HR sensor)
the fingerprint sensor is an excellent feature,instead of typing a password or drawing a pattern to unlock the phone just swipe your finger ,just one step.
most of samsung phones has the fm radio but the latest high end phones from samsung came without this feature only because samsung is greedy it wants us to use its internet radio app and pay for streaming and removing the adds.

The fingerprint sensor and heart rate monitor are just gimmicky features. Unnecessary and useless.
It's true that Samsung phones have better camera. Plus replaceable battery. But unfortunately they don't have FM Radio.

Internet radio gives you more choices of radio stations from all over the world. Better FM radio stations are available in internet radio but not available in built-in radio.
You like limitations, limitation of radio stations to choose from and limitation to move around due to the messy headset wires.
Tcool, 06 Jul 2014It's just shows that you don't need a smartphone.

read my post again and don't add things i didn't say.
i said millions listen to fm radio in their "cars".
and what u r calling it dangling headsets is still the most common way to listen to your music,watch movies,listen to fm radio,and of course calling.
ps:the wired headsets comes free with phones and they are used by millions.
