AnonD-124528, 13 Apr 2013Well that depends on your interest...
S4-have power, great screen and contras, have many soft... morethe s4 design is not bad ,it has 5" screen but still smaller and lighter the the xz,its design is not different from the design of the best phone of 2012 the s3.
the plastic of the s4 is very durable,and unlike the xz which has an obligatory scatter proof easy scratchable screen protector on the top of the glass,samsung uses the gorilla glass 3 (the best in the market) which does not need scatter proof screen protector.
the s4 has much power and excellent battery life.
gsmarena: Winner: Samsung Galaxy S4. The Samsung flagship not only has a larger battery but also uses it more efficiently. The Xperia Z posted better 3G talk time, but lost ground in the rest of the tests. Moreover, its non-accessible battery means you can't just pop a spare in.
Winner: Samsung Galaxy S4. Samsung used a newer Snapdragon 600 chipset and clocked it higher than Sony's S4 Pro, so it's no surprise that its flagship walked to the victory here. The Exynos 5 Octa version of the Galaxy S4 should be even faster with its Cortex-A15 CPU, but even the Qualcomm powered one is the fastest we have seen so far.
regarding the s4 vs xz screen
gsmaren: Winner: Samsung Galaxy S4. Samsung has done an excellent job with the display of its latest flagship. Not only does it easily bests the Xperia Z in terms of sunlight legibility and contrast, but it can also gives you the option to get rid of the over-saturation with the Adobe RGB mode.
samsung screen can be used with gloves and air gesture.
Tcool, 13 Apr 2013How come you always like the iPhone wherein ever since all iPhones don't have FM radio?
Troll...u didn't understand what i meant ,one of the reasons that i am avoiding the iphone although i like it is the absence of the fm radio.
i am not trolling but in the same time i don't lie to people.

SAMSUNG S4 OR SONY Z please advice I am confused
please help....... moreWell that depends on your interest...
S4-have power, great screen and contras, have many software(but many you would not use)...but bad design and material..if you dont care about design language, its perfect for you..
XZ-also have power, great screen but lower contras(i would not use full brightness anyway so i dont care much)...not as many software as S4 but still usable..nice design and material...also waterproof(u can take picture while swimming^^)..
overall nearly same price...i like them both if not S4 have a same design that is...
It's still the same old ugly design compared to Sony Xperia Z......C'mon Samsung...

advice, 13 Apr 2013i agree with you ,i always like the iphone but without the fm radio it is always a big NO ,now... moreHow come you always like the iPhone wherein ever since all iPhones don't have FM radio?
Anonymous, 13 Apr 2013Radio unavailability and same S3 design might be a drawback.A big NO.
AnonD-87286, 13 Apr 2013nice design, monster specs, pretty good camera and octa core. for me thats perfect!US/EU not getting octocore yet.
Boring design, no radio and notice no excited announcement after the launch like Samsung love to do. Seems the launch has been a bit of a flop, and some news outlets have reported as much too.
even if the galaxy s 4 had Radio features , you 2 or 3 people would still have found something else to Cry about , when the Galaxy s 4 goes on sale millions of people will buy the this smartphone. Am buying 2 , even if it's the same design , even if it's plastic material , we ( meaning Millions of us) Just Love this Smartphone
I have been regular user of S3 since 8months.The battery is a drawback in S3,As we start using the net the battery runs out within 3hours
Tcool, 13 Apr 2013 Because BlackBerry Z10 and iPhone 5 don't have radio too. Big drawback too.i agree with you ,i always like the iphone but without the fm radio it is always a big NO ,now it is a big NO for the s4.
