Haha, I'm actually a great fan of Xperia series hell in fact I bought the first Xpeira, well X2 but still..
This time with the Xperia Z, I was almost certain that Xperia will gain the top cup this time but Samsung literally rushed the S-IV to beat it down, from a business tactics point of view it's just brilliant gameplay!
Now with Xperia Z being actually 50 euros more than SIV besides having lesser specifications, but more features.
Damn, it's just going to be one great fight :)
vr @ 544 - respectable > also Feb '4i' Development from Tegra
which may cha cha fine with LTE, but still scratching my head about 300gbps + flying through.
KaodZ, 03 Mar 2013hardware are good..but now since most of the phones like htc and soby has "almost" h... morehtc one and xperia z are hottest android at the moment. If you are on budget, nexus 4 is the choice. If sgs 4 packs in plastic body, people will not buy it
You see. Samsung still has removable battery, micro sd for 64gb and 128gb, USB On the go feature (which is an absolute deal breaker for me. I cant live without this feature), touchwiz is imo better than sony UI, and samsung gets updates way faster than sony (its basically the next one to get after nexus phones). Also battery is really good.
But I already have s3 so I wont buy a new phone for at least 2-3 years. S3 is still beast. Its like a computer in my pocket. I can do anything I want with it. And it has all those features I listed above. I only miss 1080p display. Becouse I watch a lot of movies and tvshows on it. 1080p would be nice but still, s3 display is still good enough =). I can hook my 500gb external HDD on my s3 and watch any movie or tv show I have on it wherever I go. Last week we went to germany as a school project and I watched stargate sg-1 from a pendrive. How cool is that?
iush, 02 Mar 2013is it really necessary for you to understand how it will save battery power? learn engineering... moreFolks, heat is energy conversion, right? The Octa is having some over heating issues, correct? So, is it currently saving energy ? -- intuitively, I would say no or highly questionable. BUT, here's more a global development and seeing in process with all this. SAMSUNG will get this right, in fact NEEDS to get this correct as data throughput through chips will increase EXPONENTIALLY in the very very near feature....in fact 2nd half of 2013. Waiting to get chip & board design 'perfected' with that in mind, actually seems a needed & best objective for a GALAXY V release. Only a few companies on planet can achieve that, I'm sure most are currently pulling their hair redesigning all related components with that goal in mind. It will reflect a pivotal separating point from prior phones. I'm happy to see with this release SAMSUNG has chosen known stability with the G IV, in conjunction with their other advances.
I have galaxy s3 and after 7months i discover new things about my phone every day.I think s4 will be a popular smart phone just like s3.I love my smartphone.Its full of surprises.
(nothing) special, camera,ram,1080pix,just the 'recent technology'..htc and sony the way better. maybe just the huge battery.But looking forward 4 this phone,though
i am really not impressed s4 will in no way sell like s3 ther are to many other brands that step ther game up i mean look at voting results they are hipping up thing like the core the screen these r ok but they r not the problems wit the s3 the design the battery nokias next flagship will have water proof sencitive screen wireless charging 41 mp camera all i c from sammy is smart eye tracking right now i have a sony xperia z and i might be trading it in for nokia eos if windows phone can catch up peeps are tired of buying gabage thats breaks easy after u spend all tHAT MONEy my list of phones n95 n8 s1 s3 sonyxperia z trust this i go for the best regardless the brand all but iphone cant stand ther platform so ya if u guys really think galaxy gona do big ther gona have to water proof make it able to survive a drop also wireless charging would be nice
Eldops, 03 Mar 2013And samsung copy itThat was in the past, they copied Apple at the Galaxy S(similar design, no Led flash). Samsung is going to beat Apple in every area. Samsung will sell more Galaxy S4, than S3 sold until now.
KaodZ, 03 Mar 2013hardware are good..but now since most of the phones like htc and soby has "almost" h... moreI am sure the Galaxy S4 is an awesome phone, and it will make a huge impact in the smart phone world. Samsung is going to do it again, their phones will sell as hot cakes.
hardware are good..but now since most of the phones like htc and soby has "almost" has the same specs as samsung..i'll go with xperia z now..with its design and "some more" features..
I am satisfied with my S3.
Have no intentions of buying this phone.
why samsung not support "s-gps" with Glonass.
and another issue about slider bat to front camera.
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2013People are no longer fooled by Samsung hype, especially with so much quality phones out there.... moreur comment is undigestable... look at most popular phone in gsmarena?? its galaxy S4, n is still to be announced... on the other hand, htc one, xperia z, all r announced but still their poularity is less... how come people will rate this phone, since they doesnt know how it looks, what all r its specs n its perfomance?? atleast apply ur brain if u have some... n i m sure u must have given it the least ratings....
