Anonymous, 02 Mar 2013People are no longer fooled by Samsung hype, especially with so much quality phones out there.... moreIs that why this the Galaxy S IV is the most popular page on GSMArena when it hasn't even been released yet? LOL stay mad buddy!
how are people already rating the design, features and performance? it isn't even out yet...
Have to agree, "ALTIUS" is most befitting, with bar height re-set higher with each innovation. The decision to delay certain innovations is good strategy, better to release perfection. The SIV will still ride the SIII wave plus Things will probably reach full fruition in 2nd half of 2013.
what are you saying,the hype samsung brings is real and we all know it. Every company follows samsung at this point......low ratings are brought by samsung haters, how do you give a bad rating to specs that are the best in the market right now???? Its just all haters like yourself
Sweet specs - but need to call it a day on the IV, sell as many within next 6 months and re-tool for LTE-Advanced as quickly as possible. Looks like T-Mobile skipped the 1st LTE hop but sprinting into LTE-Advanced by July 2013, true 3GPP Release 10 specs. Defining year ahead.
People are no longer fooled by Samsung hype, especially with so much quality phones out there. That's why unlike the other Samsung phones, this one has already scored quite badly in the votes. Looks like Samsung isn't so invincible anymore.
gamefreak, 02 Mar 2013One of the biggest reasons of people buying the galaxy s series is because it's simple a serie... moreNo, people are buying cause Samsung is the best phone company unlike Iphone...
Iphone do the same design over and over again.
Ama86, 02 Mar 2013Two months back I replaced my Nokia n8 with Galaxy Note 2. Damn It's a great phone. By the way... moreS4 is definetly my next phone I have N8 and N808 all the best for those phones, but Samsung is Samsung I had S3, than Note2 and now S3-mini No need eny more tablets all I make with this phones.
Guys, the s4 will not have an octa core. The processor is hating heating issues and does not support LTE. so probably s4 will your qualcomm's snapdragon 600 quad core processor clocked at 1.9Ghz. And the other news is that s4 will not have the AMOLED display. Instead its gonna have a full HD 4.99 SOLUX display as the AMOLED has been hating issues with full HD 1080p resolution. Cant wait for march 14 to dawn!
The eight core is divided into two 4 cores. One with a15 for high power yielding apps and stuff and another less power hungry a7 processor. This is ARM's big.LITTLE technology. The cores will switch according to What task you are doin on your phone. Hence power is saved. Hope this comment helps you.
I hope they can make the battery at least 3000mah or higher coz bigger screen higher processor bigger ram = battery eater.
Samsung laucnhing yet another powerhouse to secure its place at the top. Tbh, I'm not too focused on hardware specs since thats the bit every company does right and is not a big differentiator. The thing which samsung does right every time and no other company does more / less is to provide a stellar software package to complement the hardware. Imo, the Nature UX tweaks (Smart Stay / Direct Call) to the s3 / note2 is what is responsible for their massive popularity, the quad cores / amoleds come second since its not overtly apparent to most users.
So yeah, I'm really interested to see what new software tweaks they are going to introduce this time. Atm Touchwiz Nature UX is undoubtedly the best / most versatile launcher out there. just hoping the s4 touchwiz builds on that. Also not to mention, apart from the reasons people mentioned, everyone will inevitably go for s4 since thats the only one among the current set thats 100% guaranteed a key 5 lime pie upgrade (along with note 2 / s3).
Even tho I'm a much of Sony person, I felt the s3 was the best phone I've ever used and I mean it had great specs. Sure it was the best phone last year but I think Samsung r coming up with the same thing over n over again with different models n a lot of raw processing power. I don't think most of us r going to be utilising all that power to a max level. My point is why so much power for a call and a message?
Most of us would use our comp for major tasks!
But I mean that much power, for what?
I don't think there r any app in the market to run the s4 at its potential.
And the point of paying that much is to get a good feel when ur holding the phone. I felt the s3 was a bit odd in handling but it's the performance where I was impressed, where it matters.
There is no getting a phone under contract down here but I can settle for a xperia z.
I think s4 is gonna be a big hit but s3 is better in all.
No doubt that the s4 will be top but who knows!
It's funny to see this being the most popular phone from the site, despite being not announced! The announcement is coming soon, and I have a feeling this is going to be the most popular a few months as the S3 was. :D
