Samsung has copied a lot of stuffs from Nokia specially regarding the camera features, the smartshoot, cinemagraph, etc lenses are all copied from Nokia and Windows Phone 8. Also, the ability to use the touchscreen with gloves was also copied from Nokia's Super-sensitive touchscreen. Now, Samsung has started copying from Nokia as well as Apple... try something of your own samsung... don't copy from other manufacturers.
Nice phone, but its price may be 40,000 rs in india. And it will launch in may. It is very nice smart phone
Samir, 15 Mar 2013the old plastic body.....:@ come on Samsung!!!!!!
it's not look so good as Sony xperia Z &... moreHi dude,
Have U used S3 b4?..if not, use it once den u will realize y S3 wid plastic body better dan iphones (which I used) & other android devices. Let comparision cum frm gsmarena betn these currently grt devices to see which one is more stable. As far as I think Z/One r heavy & bit thick bodies than S4. Glass doesn't hav d quality like S3 evn has. Though S4 looks same like S3 but it has many add on features than Z/One. But if I go as U said I found "One" much better than "Z"..as looks & config wise it has something else 2 offer.M sure in future we got 2 c more better devices as technology z growin vry fast in handheld industry.
samsung should keep honest pricing of this phone by reducing thier ad campaign budget and giving the phone at a lower profit margin.
many people just hope to buy but due to ferocious pricing many are left out.
so Samsung please reduce ad budgets and provide a cheaper price from day 1
Very disapointed for the disgn, it should more better.
like xperia z the disgn is so uni.pleaase be more creative..........
There is no need for 4 cores to perform smaller tasks.Why couldn't they down clock same ARM15 cores, and use only 1 or 2 of the 4 cores. Samsung uses these marketing gimmicks to fool customers.I suggest to wait for sony's next flagship with qualcomm 800 processors.It WILL kill s4.
AnonD-119921, 15 Mar 2013This is the worst phone i have ever seen. Samsung gs4 is the copycat of HTC Butterfly. Nothing... moredo you have sense at all? how come S4 & butterfly design are same. & you want to say features like smart pause, smart scroll, dual camera recording, smart hover, 2600 mah battery are all copied from Z & butterfly. its nonsense
I quite fancy a doughnut shaped phone but only Nokia would bring out such a daring device.
Just been over to Sony XZ forum and one chap dropped his XZ from a 2 story balcony and it hasn't got a scratch on it...I think NASA should get this device for study into how this happened with not a mark on it,,if its that good NASA could use same design and material for space re-entry for their rockets..
irear camera records 1080p @60fps(check the camera sample in honds-on post)
the old plastic body.....:@ come on Samsung!!!!!!
it's not look so good as Sony xperia Z & HTC one. it's specs are good but it's design & plastic body suckssss!!!!!
specially I think Sony xperia z is a premium product & I will go for xperia z.
AnonD-117383, 14 Mar 2013Who give darm about the design Btw even iphone 4 and iphone 5 looks the same And so the s3 ... moreI'm impressed with technical specifications.from my comparisons there's no smartphone that beats it's internal specs...as it was with S3 beating every smartphone on its way to top all smartphones.this must be a headache to IPhone,BlackBerry,Sony and HTC coz this beast phone is here to best them out.
AnonD-124115, 15 Mar 2013The design/hardware greatly affects the functionality of a phone. Not just in device speed/mem... moreNobody in their right mind will make a donut phone........ The design affects the usability of the phone, an is pretty much the same as the S3.... It is a highly usable phone.... Combine with the better hardware and better battery life, you have a awesome phone....
All this octa core shit should not affect ANYONE as long as the price of the S4 is less than or about the same as the Z or Droid DNA.....
styxgeist, 15 Mar 2013Specs are good, not enough to make me want to upgrade from my existing quad core phone, and 13... moreHTC bring out a flagship nearly every month so expect them to up processor speed even more..Its just like the megapixel race all over again just power...I want proper shutter button,xenon flash ,lens cover and more quality its no good if HTC or anyone else bring out quadcore @2GHz next with 4GB RAM its overkill..
If they put all the SGS2 or SGS3 internals in Nokia E90 device thats me sorted.Period, as the say over the pond.
Adheesha, 15 Mar 2013Why don't Samsung not concerned about the looks of their devices. Although I'm a Sony fan I be... moreIt did...... it has a better camera, better screen, better processing power, battery life is same for both the devices (approximately same) and the same old sammy design........ Xperia Z loses down significantly......
Also, even a S3 has better stills then the Z.... (The quality is better for S3, but Z benefits with higher resolution)
