AnonD-115286, 11 May 2013Some ppl are bashing this phone like hell while some ppl are praising this phone like God. But... moreBla bla bla... I hate reading long post, no time to read it, it's like a story telling.
Kindly make it short and simple.
buppy, 10 May 2013There are somebody who doesn't like S4 and always say something bad about S4. If they don't li... moreyup you're right those are insecure bloggers maybe paid by some Samsung competitor's.
Phone lacks two things...
first is battery only 2600 mah...why not 3000 ?
second (like most phones) its 16/9 why not putting 16/10 ?
i dare to challenge each and everyone that galaxy note n7000 has the best screen size ratio.... its perfect for wide viewing....just download any pics on a 16/9 screen and see....
no radio im not buying it! was waiting it for a year but without radio im not buyug it ill get htc
Some ppl are bashing this phone like hell while some ppl are praising this phone like God. But in fact, nothing is perfect in this world.
In my opinion, this is a good phone, I tried it personally in a Samsung retail shop. It is very light(weight) and run responsively like lighting (slightly smoother than XZ and HTC one). Having some extra cool features like Air gesture too, but I doubt most ppl will ever use them in real life.
(Personally)I only found 2 dislikes/bad sides for this phone,
1) Design, and this is a big/major dislike for me. Though this should be subjective and depends on personal preferences. But Samsung is keep using the same design over and over again on every high/mid/low end device since last year which makes their flagship like Note II, S3 lack of uniqueness because it looks very similar to other Samsung mid/low end phone and now even similar to the previous flagship (S3 vs S4). I think this is why many ppl (including me) feel/think that the phone looks "cheap/not premium" but not because it is made of polycarbonate or so called plastic.
2) Memory, those extra cool features are come with a price which they eat up quite a portion of memory usage. Together with OS and TouchWiz, it totally consumed roughly 7.xGB memory which is almost half of the phone memory if it is a 16GB S4. Though 8.xGB + SDcard is fairly enough for most ppl. A minor dislike.
Other than above, like screen, camera, call and audio quality and etc are quite subjective for me. Some may like the screen while some may think it is oversaturated. Some may think the camera is good while some may not.
Personally, I think all of them are well performed.
And about some accuses like sudden death, overheating issue, poor battery life and frame drop/lagging issue. All these are either known issue/bug of Android (sudden death n occasional lag issue) or weakness of every smartphone (battery issue n overheat issue). Which means any other Android phone or other smartphone are suffering on the same issues above, though some might be slightly better on some category (like having bigger battery capacity), but generally their difference will not be significant.
Anyway, still recommend any interesting buyer go and try on the phone (display unit) on their retail shop personally before buying it. Because you are the only one who knows which phone suits you best but not others.
check out samsung active in the rumor mill thats the phone to have!!!
S4 is the best phone in the market.It has an octacore chipset,13 MP camera,Jelly Bean OS 4.2.2 and has 2GB RAM.No other phone comes close.
dig d, 11 May 2013why no radio and document editor?Because radio and document editor are useless.
Ask Apple the same question.
You dont get both lte and octa core apparently except in korea, well samsung packed a assload of the BEST tech that they have and eventually only korea gets it. Tons of bs software and apps, definitely not worth the buy. If ur gona sell something GOOD make sure its standardized world wide and not half ass-ed crap around the world so that they can envy on korea's better version
Awesome phone buddie
m waitng 4 ths a vry lng tym
n now its in my hand
no 1 can catch the quality of samsung
its really awsm
Dear Samsung Galaxy s4 fans
I have a doubt i purchased my s3 on june 2012 for 38,500 US$700.But today its cost around 28,000 US$500 span of 10 months the price slashed down but the quality remains same.Same way s4 sold out for 41,500 US$756 when it was released now with in a weeks it came down to 39,000 US$710 but quality remains the same are the people who buys at first are FOOLS?Can't samsung hold the price for a year so that people who got first can breath easily.
why would you need to access the battery!! Mostly after it is swollen due to frequent over heating... And u need to change it every 6 months...
ash, 10 May 2013performance is awesome having 2gb ram and 13 mega pixel camera what else you want on the phone ....xenon flash, metal case, bigger battery, a KEYBOARD with a joystick- these are good to start with.
