Just saw it for sale on mobicity.com.au "oz site"
They only advertised the Exynos 5 Octa 5410 16gb 799, 32gb 899 and 64gb 999 outright :(
No mention Qualcomm APQ8064T Snapdragon 600.
I really do hope these prices drop...
you'll hate this phone if you once used Galaxy S,S2,S3 design is the same no one will recognise you whether its an old phone or new.. bye bye Sammy I switch to HTC One...
blitz_arc, 22 Mar 2013Haha.. Listen to all the hate and bias reviewer have said and follow their footstep to spread ... moreit is a nicely built phone but sony z is too big and uncomfortable in hand(maybe you got big hands),,screen is sub par for me ,speaker is in awful position,camera not that good a lot of noise,no centre button,no removeable battery,flaps are a pain for me for waterproof cause i use headfone jack everyday,missing samsung sound alive player and conCert hall settings..you spend most of your time looking at screen so why not have the best.?? in my mates retail box he got screen protectors but its supposed to be dragontail and screen has to be wiped a fair bit from smudges.
see its up to the individual to choose whats right for them..i did not like sony z so not going to buy it.it was my mates phone and he took it back but it has no lag but not for me.plus stamina mode disables all the things a smartfone needs to be a smartfone so is a waste.
Man why is April taking so long .....APRIL 26 . the Galaxy s 4 bringing the Future to Us
The Galaxy S4's back camera records 1080p video at 60fps, NOT 30fps. Please update the specs it accordingly.
Sanjay Puri, 22 Mar 2013Xperia Z a worst flagship phone presently in market. A bad nightmare. A worst kind of screen i... moreHaha.. Listen to all the hate and bias reviewer have said and follow their footstep to spread the words.
Obviously you haven't see the xZ yet. The viewing angle is just the only point to bring down sony. But as a user you have no problem with it.
Contrast? Im sure you are blind to say it has weak contrast. Numbers doesnt tell anything. See the screen of xZ for yourself, and you will take back what you just said.

Right I paid 10GBP less per month over 24 month on 2nd day of launch of S3 by going with another provider but again UK so not much help.
ark0udakos, 22 Mar 2013As I show in sammobile.com, here in Greece we can only get the snapdragon version which is rea... moreThe snapdragon 600 CPU is something to be sad about? Last time i checked the Snapdragon S4 Pro beat the Exynos 4412 is almost ever benchmark..... Plus its a million times more stable and doesnt overheat like the Exynos CPU.... Exynos 5 Octa is just a name.... the CPU isnt running on 8-cores simultaneously, so whats the big deal
had lot of hopes with s4....sold my s2 !! hoping this would be looking good with design little better atleast.. .no doubt it's best in spec sheet.. .but guys you all trying to hide the ego why? don't all honestly agree the design of s3,note2,grand,note all same?? no difference even ppl would wonder which phone it is! vanity should be seen.. .going with xperia z for it's decent respectable spec sheet...krait quadcore snapdragon processor,2gb ram,bravia engine 2,stamina mode still good enough to run all stuff easily and has upgraded so much with luxury design and it stands out in crowd . no offence sammy i always your fan...i still feel s2 design much better than s4...plus In my heavy monsoon rainy city add on xperia z waterproof is so much a benefit.. .lets hope Sammy makes s4 or s5 waterproof..i doubt.. .all my thoughts.. no offence to anybody. it's all our choice. peace!
brynn, 22 Mar 2013We have a lot of places here in UK that sell it and they compete on price do you not have that... moreI am From Pakistan, don't know about these pre-orders and their terms and conditions, what i actually recognized is the early prices which i mentioned in last comment, i gathered all those pricings from different articles of gsmarena, of course those prices are pre-orders right now, my question is will these price stay when S4 releases, or it'll come in reduced price than that? i hope you understand my query :)
alipk52, 22 Mar 2013Basically i am one of those who knows poor build quality of S4, yet willing to buy it, but the... moreWe have a lot of places here in UK that sell it and they compete on price do you not have that where you live?? Also it will go down after a few months so you will get it cheaper..Its always high first so all early adopters who will buy it will guarantee to get the networks most profit..I learnt in about 2003 to buy sim free and always do..In the endyou own it ,not stuck with 2 year contract...I top up 10GBP a month that give me 500MB data plus 300 texts and still keep the 10 GBP for calls and MMS,thats on O2 UK.
Basically i am one of those who knows poor build quality of S4, yet willing to buy it, but then a massive price such as 649-700€, 530£, 970$, 878$ is enough for me to decide i'll not buy it, totally un affordable for me, although i am looking to sammy device first time, so don't know if above mention price as pre-orders in different websites are always that huge before the phone release? any old Samsung owner please tell us, maybe after the announcement of S3 last year, its pre-order price was also that high? and how much price goes down when it released? please answer...Thanks..this will give us idea how much we'll need to get S4?

I think its severe lack of educations,kids ,trolls saying these absurd embarrassing comments..
The LG Optimus Vu body design beats this but, the inside is not comparable!
wow.. i was really excited about this phone. and then just now i found out it has no radio. tsk..tsk.. i'll stay with my gs3. good specs though. sammy on your next flagship phone please don't forget to put a radio in it. thanks.
Man.... u got to c to SAR (Radiation) values... its too high... dey shld hav brought it down as in NOTE2...
I have a S3 and was going to upgrade to the S4 for the wireless charging but found out it's a $100 add-on. Then I found the Monster Watts Stealth wireless charger SET for my S3 on sale for $40, and the charger is S4 compatible. They also just announced yesterday that they would accept the S3 receiver for trade in when the S4 is available-which is unheard of.
