S4 is a good phone, but the xperia Z is not just to compare but to win. S4 is on wide screen the new software version.
If the phone get price tag of Rs.36,000/- in India, i will be one of the Samsung S4 pride owner.
Anonymous, 15 Apr 2013No FM radio is a disaster for me. Used it frequiently in K750i,K800i,N82,6300,6303,Xperia Neo.... morewe are using smart phones, whether there is an FM radio build in or not is not important at all, the power of APPS allow us to Download FM apps where you could play the radio by online streaming which are not data consuming. all the problem solved!!
The samsung will make a 4000mah battery, extra battery for Samsung Galaxy S4 model, 4000mah reason why the model is S4, and will not have competition motorola x phone that comes with 4000mah battery ;))))))
guys you can have a pocket radio for 1-3$ so stop talking nonsense, Buy the phone and buy a pocket radio with a f***ing loud speaker I guess It satisfies your need. Oh BTW it is better since you can toogle between AM and FM.. right =)? SOLVED
samsungu promised fans that he would launch Samsung Galaxy S4 with Snapdragon 800, she went to return after with snadragon 600 can not understand why ????

md zannat hosen duel, 15 Apr 2013what's wrong Samsung ? the design of all phones are not attractive, funny looking and monoton... morethen you should go start your own smartphone company and show us how a mobile phone should look without be Sued by Apple ,Nokia , LG, Or Blackberry who will say that's our idea from 1885 , so please show us Since you know everything
Stop going on and on about the radio.. The only time I listen to it is while driving.. I have never used the radio on my phone.. Of course opinions do differ.. But personally I wouldn't want to waste a second of the time I spend with a phone such as the s4 listening to radio.. If radio is that important look for cheaper options.. This phone is absolutely not for you.. It's a smart phone for god sake..
what's wrong Samsung ? the design of all phones are not attractive, funny looking and monotonous .try to make different and smart looking.
Graz, 15 Apr 2013If it's true this phone doesn't have a FM radio, that's the entire reason I won't be upgrading... mores3 is still an excellent phone even when compared to 2013 phones ;it has better camera than xperia z and better still camera the htc one,it has better sound than the xperia z, and if i were u and i am using the fm radio a lot i might stick with the s3 as will.
any way i need to mention some facts,the s4 has a bigger and better screen than the s3,has better processor and gpu,smaller and lighter than the s3,s4 has new sensors,s4 has infra red port.
for people who can afford the price of the s4,they are probably able to buy a wireless fm headsets,and as every body know fm radio can not be used unless u connect your headsets.
If it's true this phone doesn't have a FM radio, that's the entire reason I won't be upgrading my S3. A slightly better battery, slightly bigger screen and slightly better camera with some silly software gimmicks aren't enough to make me want to upgrade, especially with that shortfall!
gat100, 15 Apr 2013Today i experiment with my Samsung Galaxy S3 with internet radio streaming. The result is: 30m... moreI agree with you it happened to me as well. now I'm tuning to HTC bye bye Samsung...
gat100, 15 Apr 2013Today i experiment with my Samsung Galaxy S3 with internet radio streaming. The result is: 30m... moreThat 24 Mb is not consumed by the radio streaming alone.
Your emails, facebook, twitter, youtube, instagram, weather, and downloaded apps auto updates consumed a part of that 24 Mb.
Don't fool yourself.
gat100, 15 Apr 2013Today i experiment with my Samsung Galaxy S3 with internet radio streaming. The result is: 30m... moreYour problem is solved, there are so many available bluetooth headsets with built-in FM-radio compatible with Android phones. You can listen to your favorite FM-radio stations and be able to answer incoming calls.
Don't make it a big issue
This lack of radio is complete crap, not put one of the most useful things
Anonymous, 15 Apr 2013Even HTC said " Plastic is not fantastic, my friend.who came up with this saying a 3 year old , and it's being repeated by a 7 year old . grow up so what it's plastic, which part of we ( meaning Millions of us ) just love this smartphone . grow up
Guys, let's not bash S4. It's perfectly able to compete and even beat One and especially XZ in some markets. First of all, its design is so that you can easily hold it, and from far away, it's just as good-looking as One, in a different way, though. The only problem is the plasticky feel, which only you can feel so you don't have to be embarrassed about that. S4 is made for comfort, not for style. Second, can you please stop saying that Air gestures are copied from Xperia Sola. My friend has Sola and he said that floating touch is ABSOLUTELY USELESS and for fun only. Heck yes, we played more with the smoke than with actual games!
