Now that S4 is released, it's gonna be cheaper, and since S4 is barely different than S3, then it won't matter much. Save up for the next two-three years while having fun with your S3, then buy the latest, hottest phone. At least, that's what I'm gonna do!
I for one will miss the built in FM radio. At some races I go to they broadcast locally and I can just put my headset and listen in on the action from the announcer more clearly that over the speakers with the car noise. But, I know of a BT headset from Sony that has a built in FM receiver, so I will likely get that to have the over all same features. Though I do loose the record the radio feature that I have on my GT-I9100 now, but I have not really done that.
I still think FM is a relevant feature, news and music without using data plan or use of space on the device to have it on hand when wanted. Every phone I've add since my Nokia 6200 has had FM receiver, and I've used it on everyone of my phones since. I will miss it.
unnamed, 04 Apr 2013Just download a radio app troll!What fm radio app that can be used offline like S3 has? Want to install it in my Tab2.
No one and nothing is perfect!,but/ and so we hope that Samsung will learn to do a more complete (hardware and software ) smartphones, mostly the flagships! !!.but to date is totally clear, that the Samsung galaxy s4 is the only smartphone to buy!!!!!!.because it is really the best!!!!!, and it is surly the most value for money! !!!!!!.so i obviously recommend Samsung galaxy s4 to everyone! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
No Radio is an involution. Galaxy S3 already have it. I don't think the reason was not enough capaciti of the Samsung chipset.

Samsung is on the safe side.
Samsung most respect loyal customers idea, innovations ,mind and inventions otherwise you are going to loose . Why are you being overproudy like Nokia use to ? Now Apple is not head to head competiters but android families and yourself. Fm radio is pulling your leg backward and look Sony ,HTC ,LG ,Lenovo,Zte ,huawei etc. Your throat is not safe.
Anonymous, 04 Apr 2013No FM radio is so Iphonish:( Other android flagships have it. Don't worry, latest Nokia Lumias doesn't have FM radio as well.
Use TuneIn radio app.

Buy yourself a 2G basic phone with radio troll.
Dee, 04 Apr 2013it's annoying that troll kept whining about useless radio! samsung dont wanted to sell their ... moreAs long as many have limited amount of Gb download data, and no stable 3G connection everywhere, and the battery in a phone is still too small to handle batterydraining apps, streaming radio will never replace FM-radio!
Whichever variant of Galaxy S4 supports LTE here in the Philippines will be my next phone (i9500 vs i9505). I have to admit the design sucks but I will just buy premium cases to hide the ugly look! Haha! :D
leomeow, 02 Apr 2013Quite sad with the new flagship... still plastic. Own previous S3 and does not look as appeali... moreyeah im pretty disapointed in the s4 too looks just like the s3/note 2 im starting to have interest in the htc one, never much of a fan of htc but there htc one is amazing you should give it a look
When will this monster come to india???
When is the release date??
I couldn't wait have it... Guys reply me if u know...pls
An unambiguous reason to not like s4 : i wanna a mobile wif creative technology and special design not a device wif all those useless 'high-tech' feature as no one is going to use it so frequently ... Plz samsung stop creating those crap phones and stop copying other ppl technology ... s=s2=s3=s4 , no diff , keep copying , all samsung galaxy line up product seems to be like this
