There are so many magical abilities under the S4's hood, so why choose to single out such a minor app as the radio? Samsung is progressing steadily and we need to give them credit.
no radio!!!! same design!!!! OMG wats happn to SAMSUNG .....its 40k dude.....40k......guy havn galaxy s duos and i havn s4 ....both have same features nd looks....damn it!!!!!
After comparing it to the other phones making their debuts in the same quarter of 2013 as the Galaxy S4... (Blackberry Z10, iPhone 5, Lumia 900) There really is no comparison. The S4 has the edge in every category from the largest and best display with its 5 inch screen, to a faster cpu quad core processor, to the 13 mp camera, 9the closest to it right now is 8 mp0 and with its os being Android 5.0, it is at the top there as well. As of right now this phone is untouchable. I have heard that the gaze detection and other eye detection functions have lagging issues and are even semi inaccurate, even useless, but with all the hype on the opperation butter projects aside, this phone is the top of the market when looking at the specs, no questions asked
rako, 16 Apr 2013radio is not only for songs.....,its for weather updates,ny disaster strikes,a tornedo a bad w... morethe fm radio is a nice feature some people in some areas still need to use it.
but i think u have exaggerated its importance as if there is no such thing called tv,no internet,no cheap fm radio sets,no fm radios in cars.
regarding the prices of samsung phones i think they are reasonable ,samsung gives u the best phones in the market in prices sometimes even less than the competitors .
i am not defending the bad decision of not including fm radio in the galaxy s4 ,i am not a fan boy of any company,but when comparing the s4 to competitors u will find the s4 to be the winner,for example xperia z has an fm radio but in the same time it has poor loud speaker performance,has an average camera,reflective screen,poor battery life for video and browsing.
so for me if i have to make a wise choice between the two i will go for the best the s4,and if i find myself in need to fm radio in my phone,i will just buy wireless fm headsets.
suman, 16 Apr 2013features looks good,,but it is only the copy one,, the design is also not high standered,,
xp... morexperia z and may have a better design than the s4 but that is it ,the s4 smashes both phones in almost all other features(camera,power,battery,screen,audio...etc)
htc one is much better choice than the xz and the blackberry.
I'd post this in HTC One, but I don't wanna seem to fanboy
But mark my words, next year, HTC's flagship will have most, if not all, of S4's sensors, and Samsung's S5 will have HTC One's dual speakers.
Then they're gonna have to think of new tricks to trump the other.
radio is not only for songs.....,its for weather updates,ny disaster strikes,a tornedo a bad weather a blizzard... Fm is needed and at some places in this world its badly needed,places where there r continue skirmishes n firings etc, i dnt knw why u wana save samsung for this mistake of not putting n fm.. Its not ur company... U r getting possesive abt a company which charges such a huge price ur hard working sweat n blood income..they launch n then the price drops den it drops again in a matter of two months...why u getting possesive ,grow up
features looks good,,but it is only the copy one,, the design is also not high standered,,
xperia z,,blacberry z10 is better...
md zannat hosen duel, 15 Apr 2013what's wrong Samsung ? the design of all phones are not attractive, funny looking and monoton... more3.5 inch narrow screen is not good for gaming and browsing. And design of your xperia u is really bad.
Elmo825, 16 Apr 2013Hi Guys/Girls Does any1 of you know whent he Sa will be arriving in South Africa and be on ... moreAccording to the Samsung South Africa the launch date is 27/04/2013. Vodacom will be offering the 8 Core 3G version from the 27th onwards, and two months later the 4 Core LTE version will launch. Personally I don't care about LTE so I'd go for the 8 core 3G model.
Hi there poeple. anyone knows where I can buy the i9500 in UK? all the preorders are i9505 and i cannot find the i9500
Toy hunter, 16 Apr 2013If the phone get price tag of Rs.36,000/- in India, i will be one of the Samsung S4 pride owner.36k!!!! dude note 2 is priced at about 36k ryt now so the S4 will have a price tag of around 43k at the time of launch which will go down upto 40k within 2 weeks... but it wont get down further from 40k until the announcement of note 3... so u have to put up extra 4k bucks if u wanna buy the phone... same was th case of S3 last year which now costs 30k n was launched at 42k...
I cannot believe this nonsense about the radio!
I really don't have time to listen to the radio for 8 hours a day - I actually have work to do.
Secondly - if you can afford an S4, you surely can afford a nice sound system in you vehicle.
Does any1 of you know whent he Sa will be arriving in South Africa and be on sale?
they should stop making 16 gb version , why not direct to 6r gb? i always have some disk limitation for my full HD video recording... its is just suck if you have 16 gb version....
