You know what plastic case of a mibile phone is not part of hardware specs, we buy phone not for cover or cheap plastic like s4 with octacore processor dont tell me everybody hates s4 because of the plastic cover case. Please dont condemn any phone made by plastic this is not the source of speed and display.. and these is not an iphone in aluminum but the number core is dual only.
just got the s4 yesterday...and i must say this phone is really smart when compared to its predecessors and in the competition...it has a combination of very good audio (when compared to Experia), absolutely stunning video / grahpics (when compared to Apple, Sony, HTC one), extremely fast (cant compare any make to this) ...put off is the polycarbonate covers..but ..hey this is what makes it fully loaded and light !!......amazing device....and am very happy to get ma hands on it......
from its own stable, definitely better than the note 2 or the s 3...(without any doubt)
Chetha, 07 May 2013Buy S3 as it is cheaper, 430US$ vs 675UD$
Of course it would be cheaper!
What do you expect?
S4 vs S3:
5" vs 4.8" screen
441ppi vs 306ppi pixel density
corning gorilla glass 3 vs corning gorilla glass 2 screen protection
2GB RAM vs 1GB RAM
13MP vs 8MP main camera
2MP vs 1.9MP front camera
Exynos octa 5 vs exynos 4412 quad chipset
Octa-core vs quad-core CPU
2600 mAh vs 2100mAh battery
Don't be ignorant.
Hulk, 07 May 2013Why does it not have a radio. But s3 has 1. So stupid. When a new model comes out its suppose ... moreRadio is not the only feature that makes a smartphone better. There are better stuffs than radio.
If your main concern is radio only, you don't need a smartphone, buy a basic phone with radio and stop trolling!
this is the worst mobile ever, i bought it 1 week ago : over heating problem, fake colors, Bad Bad camera...
now m going to buy the Optimus G from LG cheaper price than the S4 but way better
Vinnu, 07 May 2013Hi, i am planing to purchase S4 and heared from one of my friend it is have xtra features bet... moredepends whats specs and features u like...s4 lacks in the Spen but has better and advanced gesture controls...I have a note 2 and boy i love it!! my work is with the s-pen...as my hands cannots write perfectly on either screen..... dont think of buying S-3...note 2 and S-4 both r better than S-3
Hulk, 07 May 2013Why does it not have a radio. But s3 has 1. So stupid. When a new model comes out its suppose ... moreradio is radio mobile is mobile so it is better to go for radio and mobile so that you get mobile and radio
The best android phone with the latest feature that money could buy,For android users highly recommended!
The Smart pause,Scroll are actually practical surprisingly.
The Screen compared with the S3 is not much,but the whites are more whiter,no big improvements visible on video quality between the devices
Overall appearance way better than the S3
From the Image Gallery, I can guess how weak is the Back cover of S4, The Price is 41,500; but the user can use only 7.6GB and has to shell some extra, another 3500 to get Qi Charging Back cover, that too is a cheap quality plastic. Please Samsung.. If there are no Steel Mills in Korea, Ask Arcelor Mittal for MoU and get a stainless steel mill in Samsung Headquarters and then make a sturdy Stainless Steel Body for the Samsung, then even if you rate it at 50,000 bucks, I am ready to buy one. Juat because of the Weaker Plastic, I am disagreeing to buy thus. Think again.
@ vinnu @ amit....guys,i think u r from india.....first of all s4>note 2>s3.....if u r cost concern n want less features then go for s3..... Radio is definately not an issue ...download app from play store.....and yes,there are some issues regarding heating but its normal....buy from samsung smartphone cafe(official store)....you wont regret.....lastly u can wait for htc one to get in stores ( likely to be available by last week of may)but then i personally think its a bit overpriced (INR 42500) vs (INR 41500 for s4)......not much difference but yet........and services of htc in india are horrible(atleast in mumbai)... The main issue of s4 is left over internal memory(around 9gb) ...rest all is great.....i personally feel u should wait for a 32gb version of s4(though no signs of its release yet)....after htc one will be available in india, many people will go for the one and gradually price of s4 will be slashed.....then buy s4(preferably black colour)....however samsung galaxy s4 has not done well in stores in india( i mean as per company's expectation)....hence i am seeing a price cut....i am buying a note 2 (16gb grey color) next month for 35k due to s-pen and better battery life....enjoy...cheers
All I want is a new Feature rich Phone:
I am confused over HTC,Samsung and Nokia:since HTC Wildfire S is being used by my B-i-L, what he says is: The Hardware is not nice, and you need to charge the phone, as the battery is no good: So I had to drop the HTC One Phone, as I think, this may have the same problem and also, no user replaceable battery in this.
Next Coming to Nokia: I hate Lumias, all tiles, fed off using Nokia Belle on 701 the dead OS as on date, with front camera access gone after upgrading to FP2, very well, they don't have tablets, so dropped Nokia
Next Coming to Samsung: Each and every phone released is on the same old plastic body, with a single flash module, even for a 2MP to 13MP camera. My Brother has been using her brand new Samsung Galaxy Ace, with a cracked shell, his hand suddenly slipped the phone near aquarium in his home and fell off the shelf, the battery now is seen from the crack. So I am thinking of dropping the opinion to buy S4 even. But Such features are really rare.
Please help me choose one good nice phone. I don't prefer Celkon, Micromax, Lava, Lemon, Karbonn, Spice, Videocon as they are remade phones. Uf Main Kya Karu??
i am planing to purchase S4 and heared from one of my friend it is have xtra features better than note-II n S3.Please anybody can suggest me to can i go for S4 or some other (S3 or Note-II) please rply to me ASAP

Anonymous, 07 May 201310 GB of music from a 16GB iPhone 4 doesn't fit on a 16GB S4, can't you read?For that matter, S4 has an extension memory of up to 64GB where you can put your music and videos as well as photos which iPhone 4 doesn't have.
S4 gives the flexibility of expanding the memory where Apple fall short of.
Jennah Barnes, 07 May 2013A lot of people are still debating between the HTC One and the GS4. If only Samsung did not pu... moremaybe s4builds by plastics.and if that mean tasteless,at least it battery is removable..if youre holiday guy who are use a socket happy phoneand you cant find any electricity what will they do?buy an extra battery?and if the One or Z have the battery problem what will they do?This plastic will win over them in term of usability and flexibility.YeS Removable battery is deadly serious matter.No one will use HtC One with battery problem no matter how fabulous the phone is.ungood english,sorry.
