Anonymous, 30 Mar 2013iPhones don't have FM radio since the first model came before samsung had its galaxy S series.... moreIt surely be any reason or some reasons behind Samsung's decision to throw FM Radio away from its Galaxy S4 product. The reason could be as you said, or it could be some other reasons... say... if not for battery life or any efficiency reasons, Samsung might think more commercial by planning to drag its (potential) Users to buy any song they like/want from its... say.. it-could-be-SAMSUNG-MUSIC-STORE.. or something like that? :-))
AnonD-130294, 29 Mar 2013What the crap ..let ,me compare iphone 5 crap with Samsung Galaxy S4.. iphone fans shut up you... moreSamsung rules in the Tech court, while Apple rules in the (ridiculous) Law court. # It is clearly right that the current best Apple's phone (iPhone 5) is nothing compared to the current best Samsung's phone (Galaxy S4), so, their comparison looks useless, and no surprising that Samsung Tech always won in always all tech aspects in every benchmark test against any iPhone. # Before going to the tech battle, Apple should firstly fix many points of tech by creating and innovating current interesting and useful cutting edge of tech and features for its smartphone, or Apple will always be the permanent loser. # I like both Samsung's Galaxy Series and Apple's iPhone, yet, my Sense of Tech smells Galaxy S4 is too superior against iPhone 5.
Doesn`t have RADIO/ 4G ? What ? is the lastest phone,and doesnt`t have 4G ? Samsung galaxy note 2 has 4g
I am speaking french,and i`m not speak correctly,sorry
iPhones don't have FM radio since the first model came before samsung had its galaxy S series. Samsung galaxy S, S II and S III all have FM radio. Samsung then realized that iPhone users never complained about the lack of FM radio on their phones. So samsung decided to follow Apple. That's the story behind this.
AnonD-252, 30 Mar 2013Why do you want to listen to music and radio... in the phone when you are at home, do you not ... moreBB Z10 doesn't have radio also.
S4 is octa-core which means it has battery efficiency that will not drain the battery faster even when streaming.
I listen to radio via TuneIn app streaming on my Samsung Galaxy Tab II 7.0 at home when I go to bed until I fall asleep leaving it streaming until morning but the battery did not drain when I check it.

PS: not to offend u, if i might have than sorry for that...
Fm radio doesn't play your favourite songs continuously. Inbuilt music player is enough, but you have to download your favourite songs.
Samsung should understand where are his feet . Forgetting own special features such as Fm radio is just weakening his feet .Small thing makes big difference and there are many head to head competiters in the market.Why he eliminate Fm radio while even very chiep phone includes Fm radio . Eye scroll is less important than Fm. Who is without hands to use phone? I May go for note iii or HTC.
Tcool, 30 Mar 2013I am not like your either. I can listen to radio streaming with my phone connected to my home ... moreWhy do you want to listen to music and radio... in the phone when you are at home, do you not have bigger and better alterntives at home? Streaming radio and music from the Internet DRAINS THE BATTERY, and that is the reason why I need FM-radio in the phone!
HTC One fans says that only 4MP is "perfect" but S4 fans say no FM-radio is "good", why not accept that only 4MP is very bad and no FM-radio is also very bad!
iPhones do not have FM-radio because Apple want the user to buy all music... from Apple!
AnonD-816, 30 Mar 2013I better go for S3 3g or note 2..Go for nokia 6120 classic.
AnonD-816, 30 Mar 2013fail no fm radio.. lol..And so are the Apple and Blackberry smartphones have FM radio?
Nokijus, 29 Mar 2013I am not you but I am. Maybe I prefer to use only smart phone for listening FM radio? Do you k... moreI am not like your either. I can listen to radio streaming with my phone connected to my home DSL internet for an hour without worrying about the bill.
You can't afford internet, don't buy a smartphone, buy a basic phone with FM radio and go to your LG Optimus G Pro phone's page not here.
