Well. Samsung does it again. I am pretty sure that this smartphone is about as powerful as most of the laptops out there. And as kkkkk said, this could be the trademark design for the Galaxy series. Although, I would most certainly prefer a more durable body. Cheap plastic makes the phone look pathetic (irrespective of whats inside).
Iphone 5 definitely gives out a better performance than ANY SAMSUNG phone out there!
From the looks of the S4, Samsung is stuck on the old S3 and small S Notes design. Just compare it to HTC One which I would say is sexy :-)
Sham, 15 Mar 2013Most of the people they do not know that WHY Apple, Nokia, Ferari, Porche, BMW, AUDI, Sony Xpe... moreI think they will change the looks and the designs once this device hits rock bottom.(If it EVER will). Maybe most of the people like you like the phones to be made from cheap plastic that's fine but I prefer my phone to be made from polished materials.
scoobydooby, 15 Mar 2013I realize that the general sentiment here on gsmarena is to praise or bash a phone prematurely... moreGreat seller? However wrong i think you might be, the results are still yet to be seen. You do have a point here by saying why should they change when they always have kept the design similar. You're right once cheap always cheap.I have yet to get hold of the device but im sure it will be the same as it looks on its hands on videos. I dont think the phone will differ much, smart guy.
Most of the people they do not know that WHY Apple, Nokia, Ferari, Porche, BMW, AUDI, Sony Xperia, Blackberry, Rolls Royal, Ducati, Hummer , Bugatti, Lambrogini, Etc , these companies are still manufacturing and making similar models of their products?
The answer is if you study the business concepts successes then you will see when a company made a product which hits the Rock of the Market they will never going to change its totally shape but a little changes in it. So porche car company is manufcturing company is making same shapes of its cars with some miner changes. So similarly Samsung S3 is a Award winning device of 2012. And there for samsung don,t want to totally shape of S4 but they changed its speaker and flash light places on the back of the phone. And the home button was confirmed 4 months ago that could be same as in s3 because samsung users liked it in s3 that is why it is stil same in s4. I hope you got it. Otherwise it is superb device of the year because it is 8core my next upgrade is my S4 Insha Allah
AnonD-119121, 15 Mar 2013Unnecessary too many instruments bundled in s4 Galaxy S5 will have cockpit in it hehehe Pretty sure its next update would be virtual maps...hehehe
I realize that the general sentiment here on gsmarena is to praise or bash a phone prematurely considering users here typically have not yet used or handled the device and base their uneducated opinions more on rumor and brand loyalty, but even though Im not a samsung fanboy I still beleive this phone will be a great seller.. ask yourself why samsung would radically change the design when the S3 was as huge a seller as it was?
Some of you have some wild ideas thats for sure..
That said, im so so so happy I grabbed the optimus G when I did.. im not a fan of either Iphone 4/5 or S3 and now S4 body design and prefer the G. In closing though, just once why cant some of the people here USE the phone before they condemn it to hell because it doesnt match every single spec they think it should have.. seriously.

Chetan , 15 Mar 2013 Android never will become apple ios ....................and windows never become blackber... moreYour right Samsung and Android platform are not on the same level as apple. Samsung /Android know how to do it right and be creative!
AnonD-80974, 15 Mar 2013I'm so disappointed!! The design is just like on the photos what we could see a couple days ag... moreIt's not just software update...the camera, the processors, the graphic processors, the RAMs, the position of the camera+flash+speaker at the back . Please look carefully.
All of the samsuck phone looks the same.The design is poor and minimalistic in terms of budget. Samsung really needs to revamp the appearances of their phone or consumers might jump into another brand's bandwagon. For some reason, Its hard to come by flagship devices that are made from plastic. Even when you really do opt for plastic, at least made it look and feel premium unlike this A** 4. Some people don't care how much cores a phone have(4 or even 2 is enough- more means overkill) they just want the phone to be nice looking. Even the voting results are bad- i have a feeling this device will be a flop.
