brynn, 29 Apr 2013You blew your cover as a troll when you mentioned your Sony Z.I'm a hardcore Samsung fan too bro!!! owned s2 and note but everytime with the deame design I seriously got bored so got my Xperia z as I get the value of premium and performance in one flagship I'm not trolling just explaining real facts that so much extra power is really if very little or no use in real time experience!!! just my opinion to guys not to shell their hard earned money for a very marginal performance increase from s3!!!!!!!!!!!!! no offence but s4 seriously a cheap plastic model looking phone,I expected much from Samsung!!! just my honest opinion something which everyone knows!
Guys there is not a big difference between s3 and s4.
Apart from some additional features like air view, air gesture, full hd screen, much higher ppi.....etc..these features consumes more battery than any other phones so a big battery.
But think logically a human eyes cannot distinguish between hd and full hd on such small screen..it requires bigger screen likes hdtv and full hd tv...infact we cannot disinguish beyond 250-270 ppi, so 441ppi doesnt matters alot.
Air view and gestures are the features only to give something different but a normal person cannot use these features all the time, it is only a playing thing for some time.
Its not a kind of revolution over s3...I am using s3 and pretty satisfied...even I changed multiwindow feature limited to some apps by sammy to use every apps via rooting it.
So guys if you have s3 dont go for s4(in my opinion).look fora phone according to your use....
Well no doubt Samsung makes pretty neat stuff. Yet, the HTC One really caught my eye with its speed, high end design, and storage space. Not to mention equalizer with beats audio. Major blow to Samsung even with the GS4 on its way. Don't get me wrong, I've been a fan of Samsung myself owing the Fascinate and GS2. I'm just more into (entertainment) rather than (casual luxury).

I wouldn't wan... moreMay be with all the complaints S5 will get radio back or Samsung will bring out an accessory to compensate...I cannot see at this point Samsung bringing out an updated S4 with radio but never say never..They would have to sacrifice another chip on the motherboard,,then check it does not interefere with anything,,them submit for re-approval of new phone to FCC..
I remember when Sharp GX10 went to Sharp GX10i because of the changes they had to re-submit the new and updated device for FCC approval again.
We do understand some people have bad data plans or no data plans and FM radio works where there is no signal but there is not much anyone can do about it unless you submit petition to Samsung.

s4 just arrived to my hands,,its perfectly fits my hands, beutiful design ,, samsung just did a good job...

went to store to check s4 and most around me were like its so plastic and yukishly same which I agree! infact s3 looks better with round edges! agreed specs wise its king! but octa core in real time difference does not show really by much! no difference like as if homescreen going super faster compared to my Xperia z or any quad-core phone!!! benchmark stuff bragging does not show useful dramatically in real time experience!! its just a gimmick to lure everyone to change into new phone! screen accepted was good and bright but picking up in hand Did not give a feeling of premium stuff at all!!! most new software tricks like hovering and all is restricted to few apps only!!sorry sammy not impressed by s4 !!! buying s3 as a secondary phone and wil wait for mega series only if u change the design a bit!!!
picachu, 28 Apr 2013battery life is not gud.....its having 2 hours batteryHahaha! Two hours battery life? Are you like insane?! Out of your mind? Stop wastin your time on this forum by posting stupid stuff and wasting everyones time! Troll!
Device memory showing 8.5gb free in 16gb version.and apps cannot be moved to external sd card unless we root our phone.Apps like real racing 3,nova 2,asphalt 7 takes huge amount of space,I do not know what to do if I am out of memory.Has anyone rooted galaxy s4?
This phone(and previous s series)has a major lacking. They all have USB 2.0! This is a modern device and it should have all new technology including USB 3.0! I hope samsung fixes this in upcoming phones!
mukul, 28 Apr 2013samsung galaxy s4 have 16gb internal memory but its showing total memory is 8.8gb only where i... morethat because the phone uses most of internal storage for application like Google pay and new features don't worry this is normal thing of course you can install up to 64 gb external sd
OS dude- Android JB 4.2.2+Touchwiz(all those extra software features)
