Sorry I am not a troll.
So far I have been pleased but when I realized what a policy have Samsung and warranty does not cover anything ( a little moisture in the air can damage charging adapter) , I am very disappointed. I just want to warn others.
I still have Note 2 and its great phone. But I am afraid to use them , because every day moisture can damage them, and bye very expensive phone.
I will try to clean oxidised parts with myself. Maybe S3 will work again for little costs.

Octacore? 63 hours endurance just on snap600 alone
loads more features?
5 inch screen, but still lighter and same size as the S3?
5 sensors inbuilt?
And you call that a minor upgrade? LMAOOO tell me what other flagships did better?

What annoyed me most with the S series phones was the vibrance of the screen. OK, colours were super intense, as if from a Disneys's picture, but my photos are from real life, and iPhone, until now, although not very vibrant, had the best and more realistic colour reproduction. I hope this issue is fixed with some kind of option for vibrance intensity.
Apart from that, what the (old) iPhone 4 I own beats every (newer) Android device I have put my hands on, is responsiveness. All items on iPhone's screen (photos, PDFs, menus) move fluently, with no delay, and no framedrops under my finger, as any (real) piece of paper would slide on a surface. Although android devices may have better CPUS/specs, they are quite spasmodic. See for yourself, the same PDF loaded in an iPhone and one Android, side by side.
These issues seem to be trivial, not many people get to discuss about them, but they really are a pain in the ass, in everyday use.
I am now going for I9500, as iPhones have nothing new to show, and I hope things get a little better with those issues...
No sense of debate at all..
Galaxy s4 is better than XZ in numerous ways.. XZ only has d ip57 over but that makes d speaker so crappy and how you handle it. Too much flaps and when you hold that XZ it feels bigger than note2. It is just uncomfortable, all d sharp edges hurt my palm.. and the software bugs of it are so so so so
samboy, 13 Apr 2013Troll? Give me your note2 and s3.and keep your z in water tank. it dosens'nt have radio, it's a bowll shett phone

athiraj, 13 Apr 2013Which phone is good to buy? SAMSUNG S4 OR SONY Z please advice I am confused please help....... moreGo with the Xperia Z, Maybe the S5 would be a substantial update and a new design, for now the S4 even through with a faster processor and a slightly better pixel rate, it is not a true contender to the S3, the S4 is, just an S3 with a bigger screen, almost everyone would think you have an S3 lol, The S3 would get the same update as the S4, S3 is already fast, and the S4 is going to be even faster by 10%, People have a brain do you really think you would use its processor to its full potential. Maybe the S4 would be more innovative with a new design and Internals with a Super AMoled Plus display as the S2
advice, 13 Apr 2013the s4 design is not bad ,it has 5" screen but still smaller and lighter the the xz,its d... moreSounds like a ANOTHER Samsung TROLL.
Why are you blaming another phone, when you are supposed to write user reviews about it.
The S4 is great, but the Xperia Z is as great as the S4, S4 Pro VS S600 Definitely is a faster processor only by 17%, and doesn't make the Z slower.
The screen is excellent on the Z, as excellent as the S4
I hate the S4's durability and hyper glazed plastic, My S3 had it, had the S4 for 2 days, My S3 fell from .2 Meters and there was a slight crack not only the Bezel but also on the screen. The Crack Become worse as I used it day to day, The Body will get deteriorate by normal use and you will see small cracks and marks on the body, this is the same on the S4, the S4 after merely using it for 2 days had smaller blemishes.
I would rate the Z an 8.5 while the S4 8, because of its durability issues.
Sorry Samsung, You win in power but loose in durability/everyday use.
germ, 14 Apr 2013where is fm radio? big mistake.It is not a mistake.

Just use a bluetooth headset with built-in FM radio compatible to Android phones and you will enjoy the wireless benefit of listening to your favorite FM radio stations at the same time will be able to answer incoming calls.
