I admit I was disappointed with the reveal of S4, but I believe mobile phone technology is already near its peak-
- 441 PPI is the maximum what the human eye can pick up. Already beautiful displays available
- 5 to 5.5" screen size before the phone becomes too big to handle
- Octo processor, my S3 quad processor is perfectly capable.
- Camera 13Mega pixel but I honestly think 8 Meg is good enough to capture detailed pictures.
The only thing the S4 distinguishes itself from HTC One and Xperia Z is the battery which is hot swappable. This is why I stick the Galaxy series
cheap, 15 Mar 2013Better Camera ? - Excellent Low light Photography is possible with Htc One !! Better Screen ?... moreyes ur very correct s4 can't even compete with htc one.htc is the best company in the world.
Xperia z and optimus g/g pro has far better build quality than this phone. Similar specs, better price. People pls dont be deceived by samsung marketing.

Better Screen ?... moreYour logic baffles me.
How can you compare camera shots when we have yet to see an official comparison between both.
And FYI even if the ONE has better low light performance it doesn't make it a better camera.
People tend to take photos in more light-heavy environments so whilst low light performance is important,other degrees of light are just AS important.
LOL better Screen? LMAO. PPi does not indicate how GOOD a screen is. The fact that you made ths statement shows how uneducated you are on phones. Colour rendering, sharpness, brightness, blacks, whites, contrast ratio, sun leglibility, viewing angles are just a few other factors that you look at. Also from what has been seen of the S4 so far the display seems really good, amoled seems much better and advanced then it was in the S3 so don't be thinking the HTC has won in this department until we get proper comparisons.
Plastisc are used in Lamborghini's, does that mean Lambo's are cheap/fake? If you take a closer look you'll notice that the S4 isn't dot to dot the same as the S3. The plastics have a different design on the front, the sides are metallic. Yes it's still plastic and yes other phones are more premium design wise but which idiot is going to chose a phone that costs around £5/600 just based on it's premium construction.
The S4 is alot more compact has less bezzle. Looks way better then the S3 and more solid.
One? Looks good/decent but it's a subjective matter.
What you may like someone else may not, and vice-versa. Think before you speak.
Sense5 has completely new software? Haha I sense bias here. Tell me what is so new about Sense5? Suprise me.
Touchwiz has improved far more then you have said with the addition of smart scroll, smart pause,s-health, Air gestures, S-translator and more.
Without a detailed review it is extremely naive of you to judge Touchwiz. And if you hate it that much then get a custom launcher which most people do anyways!
Speakers of the HTC one are good from what I've heard about it. Again we haven't heard/seen a review on the S4's performance. Samsung always produce good audio based phones, so even if they fall out in this category it's only one small factor.
13 less grams and a thinner phone is better then a phone with 14 more grams. It doesn't matter whether you can feel it or not, it's 13 grams less. Deal with it.
I'm a Samsung fan. A techonology fan.
I'm not biased or I try not to be.
I want Sammy to be the best.
BUT if another phone does something better I'll admit it. Why? Because truth and facts remain most important, if the S4 isn't good I wont kid myself.
Thankfully the phone looks great from what we've seen. OFC haters are always going to hate out of fear but no one cares about them.
HKFoo, 15 Mar 2013agree bro.. blackberry got blackberry balance, samsung followed it apple's passbook, samsu... moreYes well this phone put this all in one, however I agree, it is rather disappointing, but still the most powerful phone out there; however there are many with equal specs, not at the same price this phone will be.
too much hype and now an ordinary phone lower than lumia 920, xperia z,htc one,butterfly..a flop show..expect the unexpected.,.
Working Element, 15 Mar 2013ha ha ha.totally dumb comment beta..samsung has not copied ..wtf ..thats why samsung still pay... moreagree bro..
blackberry got blackberry balance, samsung followed it
apple's passbook, samsung followed it too
sony got it's water resistant handset, samsung followed
wireless charging also...
and many many more..
A predictable iteration based phone. Eye tracking is the only interesting and innovative thing here, still places it higher than the iPhone 5, though
S4 better than htc one and Sony Z. Am buying the s4. Waited for it for a long time.... When will it be available?
Ari, 15 Mar 2013Mr. J K Sahab, Nokia lumia 610 NFC model has copied from htc wildfire, samsung has not copied ... moreha ha ha.totally dumb comment beta..samsung has not copied ..wtf ..thats why samsung still paying millions to apple..samsung is living more life in court rather than in real world..funny comment..
cheap, 15 Mar 2013Better Camera ? - Excellent Low light Photography is possible with Htc One !! Better Screen ?... moreEven though Samsung is better. Lcd is not great than Led. superamloed equals to led. For better difference take video capture for 30 secs on both the phones, Samsung gives 60 mb dense video clarity but Htc just 30 mb low qulity.
ahh xpctd sumthin good frm S4.. dey dnt showd da pic fr long tym aftr revealin da specz.
> but naw i c da same Old borin Design lyk S3, Notez nd Grand . :-\
nd also similar specz lyk Note 2..
cheap, 15 Mar 2013Better Camera ? - Excellent Low light Photography is possible with Htc One !! Better Screen ?... moreWho cares about build material if you cannot do anything with it? Does your precious have a memory card? Ooops! Afraid not! Well, I need that, cause if I wanted to depend on a PC, I would have bought an iphone. U like washed out colors? Well, I like oversaturated ones. So who cares about what you think? Go buy htc one and bang it!
