HTC>allothersbran, 24 Mar 2013Guys....This phone doesn't has 8 cores, it has 1 processor 4 cores with 1.2ghz per core for me... moreEver heard of the samsung wave 1......this had an metal unibody design and how many years ago was that....whos copying who?
Open Mind, 25 Mar 2013First off I can not believe the amount of VERBAL BS in this forum. The purpose of this forum ... moreOh yes the one other thing I forgot,,,top support in codecs straight out the box means its guaranteed to play on S4.
First off I can not believe the amount of VERBAL BS in this forum.
The purpose of this forum is to give your opinion about the S4.(PERIOD)
If your going to say it has/has not a certain feature make sure you have the facts.
And example of this is>So many people here say it has no Radio
(Samsung Galaxy S4 supports Stereo FM Radio along with FM Recording feature).
Quit comparing everything to IPHONE or any other phone.
THIS FORUM HAS ONE PURPOSE(Post your opinion about Samsung I9500 Galaxy)
If the Iphone 5/Sony Z/ZL/HTC ONE are such great phones go to their forums.
IF YOU HATE THE WAY THE PHONE IS BUILT (NO ONE IS FORCING YOU TO BUY IT)
The phones purpose is all sorts of task NONE OF WHICH IS,(To win a beauty contest)
Now my opinion of the S4
-its a great looking phone with many useful options
-just the right size screen
-a kick ass processor
-very bright screen
-supports lots of different condec's
THIS IS THE ONLY PHONE TO BUY in my opinion.
PS These forums would be a lot more enjoyable if there was a lot less BS.
Of all the money (sales) that samsung got last year, they still couldn't produce much better built quality on their phones??? Samsung is totally ripping people off ,just sad.
Unbeatable...........Samsung again proved themselves.......Best phone in the year of 2013!!!
JANKO, 24 Mar 2013htc one or s4? s4 of course octa core, amazing camera and features!
HTC>allothersbran, 24 Mar 2013Guys....This phone doesn't has 8 cores, it has 1 processor 4 cores with 1.2ghz per core for me... moreThey doubled most things in power ,increased battery and screen,all this in a smaller package now that's engineering.No way ever buy htc and defo not Sony Z ..A premium made phone over all the stuff I love about Samsung will not make me spend my money on htc.
I love screen,audio,touchwiz,cameras,software and removeable battery and card slot for my newish 64GB card so SAMSUNG WINS FOR ME.
Guys....This phone doesn't has 8 cores, it has 1 processor 4 cores with 1.2ghz per core for medium use and 1 processor 4 cores with 1.6 ghz per core for applications that needs more power.This is not octacore, it just have 2 processors, not 8 cores.And the desing...pff..plastic it looks cheap and ugly.Look at the new HTC One, thats a great phone, with his all-metal body.Htc comes all the time with something new, samsung has every phone with same desing and same cheap materials.This is a galaxy s 3 with a bigger screen.Thats my oppinion, no offense!
Looking good, light enough and I like the 441ppi, It's been noticed that the width of the plastic has been decreased so you can barely see the plastic where the screen ends. This smartphone is going to be a good success for the year 2013.
DroIdd life., 24 Mar 2013Dude chilout. The quadcore snapdragon 600 in the s4 gt i9505 is clocked at a beefy 1.9 ghz. An... moreNever thought of it like that ,,the Snapdragon is potent CPU..If you choose Octacore you get 4 x 1.6GHZ max but with SNapdragon you get 4 x 1.9GHZ max.
I was after octacore because its more Geeky but I suppose both are pretty good..Next choice is colour ,i usually get white but black looks better on S4.
Snapdragon or exynos 5 I don care! The phone is so good that I don mind not havin the radio or LTE as here in india there is no score for LTE as even 3G is also not so popular as the tariff rates are too high! Lol :-P . Its A definite satisfactory buy!
JSK, 23 Mar 2013In North America we will see only 4 cores not 8 cores. It makes me feel very bad. Also 4 cor... moreDude chilout. The quadcore snapdragon 600 in the s4 gt i9505 is clocked at a beefy 1.9 ghz. And its A15. And you need to keep in mind that in the octo core version only 4 cores work at a time. So there wont be much difference. The features and specs are way too amazing . So close your eyes and buy this phone without a second thought! You wont regret it! If you dont give a Shit bout the build quality and just care bout specs, raw power and superb features then this is the phone for you! :)
s, 24 Mar 2013Yup, my mother uses the first Samsung Wave and the Amoled still looks beautiful, much better t... moreI have the Wave but did a silly thing and updated it and it gone so slow..The audio output on Wave is top notch..The Wave has real shutter button too..If they could bring out 4inch screen Wave running android I would buy it.
The Wave was my second Amoled screen and when I got it home I always give it good 12-16 hrs initial charge and remember seeing the green charging icon and knew Super Amoled screen was special..
