best phone ever launched,its just unbelievable to watch those specifications.Each and every specifications are mentioned above and compare it with iphone 5. Every individual will find the difference.
it is not the competitor of iphone 5,it dominates iphone 5 in each and every department.
look what sony z done for example; bring the features such a water resistance, is that wowwwww!
also looks and feels amaizing
now what Samsung done instead, brought in the S4 with nothing new outside, same boring share no added feature to the look or cover, and instead they packed the small laptop to the phone which has NO USE to the average user after couple of play. come on guys, lets be realistic about it
I hope they switch versions and actualy make the Snapdragon 600 one is the international version not the Exynos Octa based version because simply Snapdragon is more powerful and much more reliable and less laggy than the Exynos .
S4gimmegimmegimme, 16 Mar 2013The s4 looks amazing. All the specs are mind blowing and for people whinging about the look, ... moreI say Gs 2 is amazing not s3 or s4
what is so exciting about this stupid plastic and feels so cheap on had
look what HTC ONE done to chage thier brand, samsung failed by introducing this stupid phone to the market, honestly is a joke and I say that as someone pro samsung
I must say that am not overly blown away by the gs4 design wise but I might actually try and buy the phone the specs are great and they push the limit of just having a smartphone. It'll be a welcome upgrade from my gs3. Cheers Sammy... U still rock!!!
why I need this phone which looks and perform more or less the same as S3. !!!?
I am so dissapointed today after all these silly hypes by Samsung. they have failed to innovate from outside and look, that is where they have lost the plot.
this phone not excite me, the same boring S3 which just been software upgraded, that is all, nothing fun about the look , same old plastic, people who hold s3 should be really dum to buy this, and I bet they don't.
the phone towatch and buy to me is HTC ONE which revolutionized HTC series and I say that as a samsung fan who loved what they did with S2 and even S3 , but after that it has been down the hill, just the same mistake apple made.
it is now too late for Sammy to put it right!
HTC ONE bring it on ....
At first I was wowed by the 8 core cpu, but then i realised that galaxy s4 cpu is actually less powerful than the galaxy s3 cpu! Why? Because it uses only one of the two 4-core cpus, one cpu for general usage and one cpu for games and other cpu-intensive apps!
Galaxy s4 cpu for general usage is Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7
Galaxy s3 cpu is Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A9
So the galaxy s4 uses a less powerful cpu but has a bigger resolution screen, more features.
That's why on the hands-on video, galaxy s4 takes 3 seconds to load the phone dialer, it's slower than s3, except for games. And people are rushing to buy it unknowing that it will be slower and laggier than galaxy s3.
I think there is no point in octa core cpu the sofware or any other high end games doesn't require 8 cores. samsung just want their product on top but samsung did its job in the right manner.
The s4 looks amazing. All the specs are mind blowing and for people whinging about the look, I am one of the
50, 000, 000 people world wide who bought an s3 and obviously loved it!! Samsung delivers innovation without limitation and that is why they are and will continue to be #1

2and day-30%people say same thing
availabity date-8 millions or more preorder in first day.
Sorry for english.
Jenny, 16 Mar 2013There is one good thing about Gaaxy phones for us, Europeans: Samsung continues to allow &q... morethen u must listen to analysts who say this will surpass S3's sales... and iphone 5 was not a flop, it just didnt sold as much as the 4S...
mareena, 16 Mar 2013I heard this is a dual sim phone is it true? If yes then why gsmarena mentioned it as micro ... moreno this is not dual sim phone I9500 no dual sim read the Phone
Specifications.. , the dual sim is i***2.. in conclusion the S4 dual sim series is I9502
This is an Upgraded S3 nothing exciting.
It was a great chance for Samsung and they totally blew it designwise to compete with HTC one or iPhone 5.It would've been an invincible force if it'd be of nice design not to mentions the cheap plastic feel.
Though I'm sure that it'll break the selling record of s3.
Most people have cases on their phones anyway, the material used is not that important!
I've got the Note II and it is truly an amazing unit (wife has got the S3). I would've liked some of the features like the Smart Pause feature that is now on S4. Also like the processing power as that is the one area where the iPhone had the edge. Other than that, really impressed with the Galaxy products and can't see myself moving over to the brand from Cupertino.
I am using Galaxy S3 last 9 months. I don't found single issue about it's feature, performance and about hardware. Best performance ever found from Samsung. Sony and HTC are real competitor for Samsung Smartphone. But their phone feature and Samsung Galaxy Samphone features are quite differnt. Samsung take their flagship model far away by inputting such great feature. Great Samsung..Great S3 and Great S4...
