very disappointed that the UK wont be getting the octocore version. and getting the lower specced quad core version. stupid decision by samsung.
oxo, 20 Mar 2013sgs4 is out of my list and now im looking forward for the 3rd generation of xiaomi mi, 5"... moreThere are lots of high power smartphones but it depends on quality..How good is the microphones/speakers/screen/audi quality.... I know there are lots of perfectly specced smartphones but let down by inferior hardware or software.
Mak , 20 Mar 2013But you need data plan or internet for that..standalone radio is not there which can tune to l... moreBest wait and see but if you need FM radio as one of your wants in a smartfone then S4 will be no good..Its good to see folk not wanting a mobile because it is missing something they want and need..Folk should always choose their smartfone on what they need after all its you going to be using it no-one else...If you say I am buying another phone just for the sake of it the only person your hurting is yourself.
Samsung must have sacrificed the FM chip for another application,maybe the temp sensor was interfering with it or space inside the device was at a premium..
Daru, 20 Mar 2013Most of the people loves to play games in their mobile phone. So, in screen touch phones there... moreI am all for real buttons on mobiles yes gaming keys,D-Pad real send/end keys,yes,yes,yes.
sgs4 is out of my list and now im looking forward for the 3rd generation of xiaomi mi, 5"superb phone,much cheaper,good looking,quadcore snapdragon 800,2.3ghz krait 400,3000mah battery, with a tech of sony 13mp exmor rs, launched at android 5.0,and there are unreavealed specs! Those specs i mentioned are enough to beat sgs4!
Last year korean's but i think this year belongs to "chinese"
Most of the people loves to play games in their mobile phone. So, in screen touch phones there should be extra game playing keys outside the srceen. I expect this in Samsung's next surprise.....
Ian, 20 Mar 2013you do not need radio, you have many apps on the market place to access the radio.But you need data plan or internet for that..standalone radio is not there which can tune to local stations...
Anonymous, 20 Mar 2013Read reviews LCD 3 already best amoled. Samoled poor outdoor viewing, very bad. Never had a problem reading outdoor with superamoled,,it prints the screen on back of glass reducing reflections even more and blacks are black..LCD will always be lit up so having pure blacks can never happen..
I love amoled colours some do not but at least Samsung allow you to tune the colour down so you have best of both worlds..
I think the air gesture feature wouldnt be much used here in our country because if you use that it will be snatched and babye s4 lol

iPhone 5 doesn't have radio yet nobody complain.
S4 doesn't have radio everybody complain.

yes the s4 may be plastic but that allows for all the extra we need such as removable battery and i would rather have plastic than glass.
super amoled army, 20 Mar 2013Super amoled full hd amoled is ready for war. Hey ,washed out lcd are you ready. Read reviews LCD 3 already best amoled. Samoled poor outdoor viewing, very bad.
When iPhone 5 was release it doesn't have radio yet nobody complain.
Now that Samsung did not put radio in S4 most complain are about radio.
