Samsung is the worst phone i have ever seen like this. Dont buy samsung phone. Because samsung made lot of mistakes. If u buy a new phone u ll not face any problem, after update kernel or software like anything u ll face problem. For eg Galaxy s2 g version, version 2.3.4 had not any problem after upgrade 4.0.4 sunlight and hanging problem. For s3, version 4.0.4 had not any problem, after upgrade 4.1 face hanging problem. Like this s4, version 4.1 u ll not face any problem. After upgrade 4.2 or 5 u ll facing problem... Dont waste ur money to buy samsung. Go to Sony xperia z or Htc one. these two have same specification like s4. Dont waste ur money.
Has nice specs, but I'm pretty damn sure it will lag, just like all android phones. This is coming from an android user.
im seriously starting to wonder abt the design... if its the plastic one, then it might be a no-no 4 many users..
AnonD-99280, 01 Mar 2013lol it was in top chart because of popularity of samsung since gs2, nothing to do with the pho... moreLike you say we have to wait and see, but the S4 is 99% guaranteed to have quad a-15 so it will be well above the xperia z. The z is no doubt an awesome device, but a-15 all the way. And if it follows suite then better camera and screen. But we will wait and see. Galaxy got popular by being amazing not just random popularity out of nowhere
Rashdee, 28 Feb 20132600 mAH,now thats one powerful battery for a phone that runs on Android.hope this battery finally allows me to last a day
AnonD-54303, 01 Mar 2013well then you obviously have not seen the bench marks for the i9500 have you, the i9500 beats ... morelol it was in top chart because of popularity of samsung since gs2, nothing to do with the phone quality or anything.
but its really weird that this phone already has bad rating eventhough people dont even know how this phone looks like. Xperia Z will remain on top for at least a few years due to people acknowledgement and experience using the phone.
wait for other benchmark test to really see what gs4 looks like. only 1 test is invalid.
I thnk smthing is lacking in this like Battery is small nd If it's coming with S pen then Photo editor Should also be there nd this time Samsung Should come up with good Design.....
Ram Should Be of 4GB nd Internal Memory of 32 GB nd 64GB so that we not need a memory card......
one thing i know there is no phone that has ever beat sony experiaZ they all copping from sony remember the p990,the xio th neo, arc etc best quality photo processor are from sony speed also can not be compete with when sony say 1.5ghz processor they mean.
Anonymous, 01 Mar 2013Samsung was lucky, when SGS3 came out, everyone else was scrambling, including Nokia and Sony ... morewell then you obviously have not seen the bench marks for the i9500 have you, the i9500 beats the xperia z like it was last years tech and even the lg pro beat the xperia z. the fact that you say these things without even searching about what your saying think again, xperia z is a dinosaur already with mediocre features.
the s4 hasnt even been announced and its topped the charts at No.1 on gsmarena, dont have to prove it because it will be realesed in 2 weeks. keep your xperia dinosaur
Anonymous, 01 Mar 2013Samsung glory days are over, wi the SGS3. Check out the rating for this phone, it must be terrible.thz phone is not even announced n is the most "searched" or "looked up" phone in gsma ryt now... that number speaks that thz phone will be a huge hit like S3 or even more... look at its ratings after march 14th ie after its announcement n m sure it will climb up to 1st spot...
jackboy, 28 Feb 2013still the battery life of samsung S3 or S4 weak.. make it same battery life of S note 2. for m... moreIf the processor is the Exynos 5 Octa with big.Little architecture, a mammoth battery isn't needed 2 get good battery life - most of the power savings would be done at the processor level by the relatively lower power A7 cores!
With exynos octa you can shoot 1080p videos at 60fps.
wheneever they come out with a new phone with at least a 4000Mah battery,till then I will stick with my note 2
Well considering it's a 2 freaking GHz quadcore processor with a full 1080P screen, the 2600mAh battery is more than necessary. I hope it idles well.
Pritesh, 27 Feb 2013Adobe Flash??? You serious??? Adobe stopped support for Android since Jelly Bean... http://ww... moreYou have to install the adobe flash sideways by going to Adobe Archive website. Yet still work on my smartphone using Jelly Bean 4.1. I also used Boat browser app as a few Android app browsers such as Chrome or Opera browser does not support flash.
Samsung was lucky, when SGS3 came out, everyone else was scrambling, including Nokia and Sony who didn't have an answer.
This time. SGS4 may not even be as good as existing models out there. Xperia Z giving benchmarks a spanking, Lumia 920 has a stupendous camera, upcoming Lumia EOS even more so.
Sorry, but not even an ASS pen is going to save you now Samsung.
