I'm a s3 user. The only feature of s3 that I find to be of use is direct dial. I was using smart stay for a while just for the sake of using it. Not using it anymore as it doesn't work most of the time. Samsung screens have always been awesome. About the other gimmicks that Samsung has introduced in s4 , we need to wait and watch. .
Jake, 15 Mar 2013Hey the s4 does infact have 8 cores...sorry...but u got the wrong infoYes 8 cores but the other 4 just for power management and not for the performance..so technically, it's power is just quad core..
Samsung rocks !!!!!!!!
apple only makes money from patent cases and manipulation of sales records
Samsung Sony and HTC will nail apple's coffin very soon
No Steve jobs = no innovation
I want to see how the processor performs on S4. I'm excited to have this phone at hand. Though xperia Z and HTC One looks great aswell, But most of all Iphone is out of the picture. Any android user knows it sucks. :D
AnonD-62967, 15 Mar 2013Your logic baffles me. How can you compare camera shots when we have yet to see an official c... moreFirst of all..im also a fan of phone and technology..and Lamborghini is not made of plastic, it's from carbon fibre..that's why it's not cheap..and it also good looking to..so imagine using your anology, that's phone is a car..and flagship phone is a supercar..you must look at the design before what underneath..yes S4 have nice software that Samsung invented but mostly borrowing from others, but will you buy a supercar that look like a VW beetle...software can be implemented in other phone but not design...the critic made for Samsung is just design and built quality..why not change it..why make it same as s3..is it worth it..think about it
What a powerfull phone First phone has 2 Quad Core n Full HD video than S3 n Note 2
why you haters always lament Samsung as the one who copies! What about lg when it blatantly copied the idea and design from Samsung galaxy note 2 and launched optimus G pro??!!!
This is vhat i have been vaiting for my vole life, i love the plastic body its like walantines day all over again yum yum.
say all you wanna say
everyone is whining about
2)how lame HTC one is better
3)how apple doesn't copy
stuff (so Steve jobs once told how apple copied from xerox ) $shameless witches an so on so fourth but in the end it all comes to which phone guarantees customer and total satisfaction I'm not say Samsung does not have flaws but winning phone of the year twice in a row give some credit know one thing apple nor HTC nor Sony or even Samsung innovate any thing it's some one else idea they just build up and deliver
htc and sony's ui is the worst with those stock android keys always clinging at the bottom of the display and thus reducing actual display area!
I must admit that this phone is god follow up to S3. S3 and S4 have secure execution environment it means it can accept NFC card payments in theory. Also asking pin in mobile ID-cards is more secure than other phones in market. To me is this phone most secure phone in market.
When we talk about NFC then it has all standards implemented when compairing to HTCs NFC implementation it is far behind. Sony's Xperia ZL has god minimum set of all needed NFC functionalities card emulation, HCI event and secure element access (none of those in HTC One I had access).
AnonD-124506, 15 Mar 20138 brains will always faster than 4brainsIt has 4 core not 8 they working not together boy, it's just a quad core nothing more.
That you said it has 8 cores is enough that you are mis leaded by Samsung.
If you put S3 and S4 one next to another... You can play the game... find the 5 differences.
BTW... Poly-carbonate is still a plastic.

cth, 15 Mar 2013Samsung galaxy s4 over HTC One
- 5.0 inches screen
- 1mm thick
- Smart stay, Smart pause,... more100% useless feature: smart stay, smart pause, smart scroll useless!!!!!!
smart pause, what is that for? i already have that.
As far as I can see this ticks all the boxes except you don't say if the battery is user replaceable?
Frankly hate Samsung / HTC's pre-installed junkware (plus usually more from the network)would far prefer them being separate apps which you could pick and choose as a registered user.
Pleased to see decent memory specs and (Externally accessible?) SDcard ??
What about wireless charging ? this along with changeable batteries is the real showstopper for phones and tablets which otherwise become tied to a power cable within the year...
