AnonD-116479, 21 Mar 2013Which brand you will buy depend on according to your preferences. Samsung and HTC are my favor... morei own a SG3 and have compared it to my friends HTC ONE X camera, and i dont know where you got the 'SG3 nowhere near it", the colours looks blue'ish and unnatural let alone jagged sometimes on the htc one x... how come almost all reviewers dont see anything special with htc one x camera, but praise SG3 of having one of the besr cameras in a smartphone?
Also i dont know what u mean by htc is better for entertainment, how come? SG3 has more features to play around with, and they both play games just as equally but SG3 will have better optimisation because its a more popular phone. The sound on htc is probably better but i havnt noticed much difference.
AnonD-21060, 21 Mar 2013so if you want a phone that looks good then go and buy HTC One or xperia z or even blackberry ... moreWhich brand you will buy depend on according to your preferences. Samsung and HTC are my favorite phone. I can't separate these two. If you highly concern about features you should buy Samsung and if you are concerning about entertaintment you should buy HTC. I own a Galaxy S3 the reason I bought it over HTC One X because it has amazing features and good battery life. My brother own a HTC One X, it way better than my phone in entertaintment wise. It has amazing camera that SGS 3 nowhere near it, excellent music quality, stylish design, having some features that SGS3 don't have finally display quite better than GS3. If HTC One X has a better battery life my choice had to be One X in one year back. I really hate to charge my phone every day.
Finally SGS4 and HTC One are equally best phone this year. Sony Xperia Z just a hype. Because the only amazing feature in that phone is water resistance. In simply is is a water resistance version of Xperia S.
However I still not sure which phone should I buy in this year but I still waiting untill released both of this phones.
AnonD-8044, 20 Mar 2013I liked it whe GSMArena stated screen size width by height in mm,,like Nokia N73 screen is 2.4... moreyou can find out. its a 4.99" screen with 16:9 aspect ratio. multiply 4.99 with 9/sqrt.(16^2+9^2) to find width.similarly height.
common sense, 20 Mar 2013It has everything, except style and class, because those who designed it don't have them eithe... moreso if you want a phone that looks good then go and buy HTC One or xperia z or even blackberry z 10
but mind you
because of it's curvy design Samsung could manege to fit 5 inch display in the body that is more compact than Galaxy S3 and even HTC One
and common no one looks at design if you have impressive display that covers the front (own experience )
and even some silly tricks
it is cool man .this is the i never seen before samsung has a magic
AnonD-21060, 21 Mar 2013who said that Snapdragon is slower??? common its faster than HTC One and optimus g pro t... moreIts just us geeks/nerds want the latest and best even tho its a fast CPU the Snapdragon we want octacore because we are geeks ..I have 2 quadcores under my bonnet type of thing ..
Yawn,another bland Android phone from Samsung. Sorry,over priced,over hyped and over rated. The GS3 I sent mine back hated it
Android Man, 20 Mar 2013very disappointed that the UK wont be getting the octocore version. and getting the lower spec... morewho said that Snapdragon is slower???
common its faster than HTC One and optimus g pro
twice as fast as iPhone and Galaxy S3
h it'll be not as fast as exynos but common that don't make up a huge difference
abdul baseer, 20 Mar 2013why LTE 4G ! We want On Galaxy S4 i9500 2G/3G/4G.SAme here so why not give us the choice of octacore??? Anyhow hsdpa + is faster than EE 4g in UK on THree network..I live outside Cheshire but chance of my town getting it is Zero as far as I can see in next 2 years,,,i have fairly good hsdpa tho..
Its the carriers they are buying them to sell and UK just got awarded 4g licences ,,but maybe Amazon,Carphone Warehouse may go against this and know it will sell like hot cakes and stock Octacore S4 prepay or sim free
I will not purchase any high end phone who does not have FM radio with RDS. I love FM radio, and that chip in phone cost only 5 cents. Why the hell they decide not to put it in phone.
Anonymous, 20 Mar 20134g...??this is the 3G ver.
there is something called I9505 with snapdragon Quad core instead of Octa core and 4G instead of 3G.
Fm radio is still necessary expecially when you live in hurricane prone countrys like jamaica.
I'm in the market for a new smartphone and was very keen to see the specs when Samsung held their unveiling ceremony in New York last week.
Since then I feel that the news regards price (I don't actually believe that the prices being mentioned are official yet) plus the lack of information from the phone companies regards prices and tariffs for pay monthly customers has been very good.
Also, why oh why are we now finding out that we won't get the 8 core version here in the UK? It's very disappointing to be honest and feels that we're only winning a runner-up prize in a lot of respects.
I've been looking forward to the Samsung Galaxy S4 launch for weeks now and was all geared up to leave my sad iPhone 4 behind but now I am not so sure. I'd be gutted if the delivered product doesn't live up to expectations due to country dependent spec changes...
