Just read that the UK version is only getting quad core, like the US we are one of the bigger markets but we get the slower one.... Yes the Samsung big wig says it will run just about as fast but what happens to the battery life they've been raving about due to the octa core? Was thinking of getting the phone but won't now seeing as samsung has dropped us here in the UK to one of the bottom of the pecking order.
1 High contrast
2 vibrant colours(adjustable)
3 Good sunlight legibility
4 Excellent viewing angles.
5 Now with natural colours
Go for this super amoled hd.(Don't believe trolls)
some people i know complaining about samsung freezing defect, hanging while browsing
i am confuge on samsung s4 and xperia z just tell me which one i can choose . better one
There have been some people trolling around here with capacitve button issue..well all that is false..
About the phone -
- Awesome phone..fell in love with it in the first meeting..
- Superb sound quality ..both earphones and speaker
- Fabulous screen.. love this one!!
- excellent design.. it cannot get better than this..
- camera is superb ..beautiful images in dark..best i have seen till date with any smartphone..love this one!! daylight images are also good enough and will improve after the update just released.
- Battery - decent battery ..gave me around 1.5 day back up with normal usage.. 3 hours music, 1 hour calling , internet on wifi..
- Highly recommended ..wait for this one...HTC ONE is surely something you will enjoy in your daily life..
On Samsung S4:
- Screen is very good.. both mobiles have good screen.
- ugly design..didnt want to feel that i bought cheap plastic after spending so much..
- software glitches ..touchwiz lags even on octa core(with 4 cores working at a time).
- music quality is very good but not better than htc one.
- video recording is poor
- image quality good in daylight but night images have a lots of noise and less light.
- Battery back up similar to htc one..
- UI is very bad...feels like using samsung grand or S3..no premium feel.
Guys if you want to enjoy your smartphone go for htc one..don't get lured by benchmarks..this tiny difference doesnt mean anything..and what difference does that benchmark make if even touchwiz lags on S4..??.
Blindly go for HTC ONE!! BEST MOBILE I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED!!

Samsung has done it all. Plastic or not, we're not going to be using this phone for hammering nails into woods, so it's more than enough. Note 3 and the Megas will soon arrive.
anita, 25 Apr 2013lolzz...now thats smethn to be noted dude..yes i've copy paste that....but thts a fact..n u cn... moregal ur opinion will not determine that sammy got failed wid its flagship... if u like S2 its well good for u... but how can u say S4 is bad, even its not released for public yet... i guess u r the only person in thz world who says 2 year old phone is better than a yet to be released flagship phone which has already topped the chart with its performance... n keep ur opinions wid urself coz it wont determine the market n sales of products... u r making fun of urself...
NO FM RADIO !!! Shame on you samsung!!! I'm now going for another mobile phone! ZTE Grand S is a very good choice!
what is the difference between samsung i9500 galaxy s4 to samsung i9505 galaxy s4 lte?
if i have to choose, ill choose the i9505 because its 4g.. wtf. they released two different s4 at the same price!
Anonymous, 25 Apr 2013nice try copy paste... ahahahahha faillolzz...now thats smethn to be noted dude..yes i've copy paste that....but thts a fact..n u cnt change it...i use S2 n i feel it's better thn s4...so...thts a fail for sammy..
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2013looks like someone's wanna show off his money!!any problem with that
hope you some money for this S4 so be ready
lot, 25 Apr 2013why not fm radio? its more useful from barometer and basic feature.Because only few people use FM radio, they are not the main target.
