Feb 25 - INTEL finally enters contenders in the 4G LTE chip area -- "LTE connections projected to double over the next 12 months to more than 120 million connections" - http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2415869,00.asp
Looking forward, Samsung Galaxy SIV!
Last year, I bought HTC One X, its the best smartphone I ever had. Now, Im just waiting for all the flagship phones to come out. Then I'll decide which one Im gonna buy. But NO to WP and BB
FEB 25 - Qualcomm Technologies Announces First 4G LTE Advanced Embedded Connectivity Platform for Mobile Computing Products > Not sure about the 'Advanced' label placed on this chip - technically Advanced must start at 300 Gbps ? > http://www.qualcomm.com/media/releases/2013/02/25/qualcomm-technologies-announces-first-4g-lte-advanced-embedded
T-MOBILE TO ROLL OUT 4G LTE ADVANCED (Release 10) by July 2013 >>> http://www.cio.com/article/728787/T_Mobile_Exec_on_Why_Its_4G_LTE_Launch_Timing_is_Perfect_
"Following a breakup of the proposed T-Mobile/AT&T merger in late 2011, T-Mobile was able to secure significant new spectrum from AT&T, according to Sickinger, which helped it expand the overall network and boost the HSPA+ coverage.
Now the carrier is in the process of "modernizing" 37,000 HSPA+ sites across the United States so they'll be LTE 10, or LTE Advanced, compatible for a launch later this year, Sickinger says. As for specific numbers, the SVP says T-Mobile LTE coverage will reach 100 million U.S. customers by July 2013 and 200 million wireless customers by the end of the year. "
Why dont you email Samsung and ask..If you dont ask you dont get,they had slo mo in my Samsung innovate..
I am going to email them to see if they will put sgs and sgs2 and Samsung wave music player back in S4 ..I cant emulate the sound i like with Sound Alive..I use concert hall and rock or classical setting,DNSe.
I was expecting a 60fps 720p video recording camera in addition. Because a 30fps isn't that effective for sports.
Xenon, 03 Mar 2013Haha, I'm actually a great fan of Xperia series hell in fact I bought the first Xpeira, well X... moreXperia Z have more features than S4?, exactly what features, besides the pointless feature to take pictures under water without putting the phone in a plastic bag or case but using easily breakable covers for headphone-jack..., does Z have that S4 do not have? S4 is not released yet so if you do not work at Samsung then you do not know exactly what features S4 will have!
Both HTC and Sony have had fatal hardware prolems with all their previous models!
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.
