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...
mecky, 20 Mar 2013This is the best device and i m happy to purchage thanks samsung for giveing best devise to world"This is the best device and i m happy to purchage thanks samsung for giveing best devise to world"
I'm*, purchase* (it.), giving*, >the< (best), device*, (to) >the< (world). I have no idea how you spelt "device" incorrectly the second time, especially given that you spelt it correctly initially.
Next, how do you know that this is "the best devise"?
It's been announced but not released, therefore no one would know how well or poorly it works.
Anyway, have a lovely day.
I can assume d octacore chipset is coming to africa. Can't wait to get my hands on this phone
Samsung you fools why have removed 4g network when it was orginally stated it was on the phone and now you put in on snapdragon version, very disappointing
I will reiterate an important aspect of this phone.
Sadly, out of the 600€ people will pay for it, 200€ will go to marketing. Why buy phones from companies that spend money on marketing rather than research and development?
I am an owner of a Samsung Galaxy S3 and if they didn't make the phone less cracking i would NEVER buy the S4 version. It's a complete madness when after a simple knock on the ground my screen got completely shattered and the repairs are 250 usd. They should definitely make the frame a lot stronger.
With the UK mobile networks launching 4G later this year it looks like LG pulled a master stroke by lauching their LG Optimus G pro also later in the second half of this year as well,.
Samsung almost had me spitting napalm :)
Good job - I didn't drink any petrol lol
