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.

Yes Samsung listened and kept removeable battery so within a few minutes you can pop in a fully charged battery & be back to 100% battery..If you carry a charger its got to be almost constantly connected or if you leave it to late you have to wait to charge battery up,,it also means having a charger hanging off your phone which is awkward..
Samsung also kept the real button home button and if S4 had done away with home button I would not buy it..Altho I think Apple is boring they got the home button correct..
Notification light is another thing Sammy has decided to add which I like ,,This temperature sensor has got me baffled to see how it can work?? Its in the phone itself so surly will measure temp of fone not ambient room/outside temp..Samsung must have solved this but how??
Sammy has upgraded most of this smartfone and brought it to us in a smaller package than S3.

As for this radio debate the chip could be onboard and modders could activate it...That's happened vefore and a modder or software update has enabled this feature.
hem, 22 Mar 2013no radio...i will not buy it...u can get traffic info from radio and other info too...samsung ... moreIf traffic updates are seriously important you are bound to have radio at home before you set off and if your in car with traffic updates a car has one??
I would not rely on silly headphone aerial for important trffic updates I would have decent proper radio which you can get dirt cheap..
AnonD-127947, 22 Mar 2013That's true! And the only bad thing about android is these stupid ads...no radio...i will not buy it...u can get traffic info from radio and other info too...samsung should built s4 with radio...
As I show in sammobile.com, here in Greece we can only get the snapdragon version which is really sad. So will I be able to get the Exynos version unlocked from a country that has the Exynos model? (e.g. USA)?
Samsung should receive more recognition for making devices with removeable batteries and micro sd card memory expansion options. Cloud storage cannot replace expandable, affordable on-board memory. The reason why I won't consider iphone, HTC or Nexus.
