always had samsungs. had s2 s3 now s4. very dissapointed in handset storage... never had issues with other. big let down :(
Dear friends... While I appreciate the current conversation going on.. if any of you can pull out couple of minutes for my query, please. I will highly appreciate.. Thanks.
[deleted post]I prefer HTC, Sony, Nokia, Huawei, LG, BlackBerry and Alcatel rather than iPhone.
After my iPhone 4 I will never ever go back to the basic iPhone yet expensive, no way at all!
Tcool, 09 Jul 2013Well I am just being practical.

Please consider I'm not a fan boy of any brand. I'll chose what I feel good according to my experiences. Past 3 years I have used many phones starting from N8, Xperia Arc, Galaxy S3 finally HTC One.
I know according to my experience how each phone is performing. I thought Android phones are (every phones not specific) not deliver the what I expect. It's slow and lagging really annoying me. Then I stated to move on Windows Phones, then there was a another problem. My trading apps were not at the apps store and even the Windows OS has some problems either. Therefore I decided to not to move on the Windows Phones until it becoming more accurate.
When I was examining a iphone 5 yesterday with ios 7 beta it was really impressed me. But one thing I'm not like in iphones, that is it's restrictions. But I got some information that we can jailbreak ios 7 and remove those restrictions. If it's true I might buy a iphone. If it's not, I will use the Android phones, nothing to do.
Finally I want to apologize from you and every Samsung fan here, if I'm done any insult or bash to the Samsung phones here.
May be we can end our discussion right here, because it's pointless if we are arguing about those phones like kids.
I have this phone for a couple of days now and it's an awesome phone...
For me Here are the pros and cons of Sony Xperia Z, iPhone5, and Samsung S4...
iPhone is a good phone but for me it's made a different way... For me iPhone's lack of soft keys (Only one button) like back and options is a great draw back since it's hard to go to previous page... iPhone also don't have that customization in it's home screen... iPhone's touch screen home button is too annoying... AND THE BATTERY IS NON-REMOVABLE...
iPhone for me is good since it's small enough to fit into your pocket, simple in the eyes, and easy to use...
So I recommend iPhone for those who like simple things...
Sony Xperia Z is also nice... But it's total lack of buttons is a total draw back... We need to depend to the screen to go to different options... Also, Xperia Z is hard for wired connections since all ports are covered (For Protection) with flaps that can be quite annoying for those who use them more often (eg Headphone jack)... AND IT HAS ALSO NONREMOVABLE BATTERY...
Xperia Z however has that classy look. Simple to use. WATERPROOF (1 meter 30 mins?). HIGH DURABILITY. and GOOD CAMERA!!!!!!!!!
So I recommend Xperia Z for those who are outdoorsy type...
Lastly, Samsung S4 is a good phone... Draw backs: Too many unused apps which are pre-installed (Do I need to name those???), too bright display, I DON'T CARE IF IT'S MADE OF PLASTIC! No radio?
Good Points: Customizable, good for multitasking, REMOVABLE BATTERY, good camera (and camera gimmicks), large screen, Home Buttons and softkeys, nice gestures, s-view...
So I recommend Galaxy S4 for those who wants more functions to their phones...
I don't care about internet load time (since it can also be affected by network connections), bench marking (I don't even know what's its purpose), and whatever they are talking about... I'm just a regular user who wants to enjoy and wants a phone fits for my lifestyle...
In addition, I also want Xperia Z, but I can only buy one... So I chose the S4, and I have no regrets about it so far...
THANKS FOR READING!!!
Hope I helped a little...
Guys need an opinion of who is using S4.. Can you please tell me how is the speaker quality.. For eg. If I want to use the loudspeaker for making some con calls etc (business use) how loud/clear the sound is. Please reply. Thanks, I am about to freeze the purchase of S4. Early response would be highly appreciated.. Thanks !

You can pull your friend and go to iPhone 5 page and chat there. Is that hard to do?
At the same time you will receive lots of help there from different users not only Yingyng.
Isn't it practical enough?
BTW, how sure are you that Yingyng is telling the truth about his experience with iPhone?
And not trolling.
Just a piece of advice, you can't trust anybody nowadays, even your own friend, how much more a stranger from a forum. Take care and good luck!

I just ask a help from Yingyng as he has experience with the iphones here, not a troller like you who bashing to the other phones. I posted the same question in the iPhone thread either.
If this matter is not belonging to you please ignore it. One advice I can give to you, just reply what you really want to do, rather than every thing you see.

Hello friend, I need to know something from you. Are you a iphone 5 user? then did you already installed ios 7 beta. One of my friend who own iphone 5 had installed ios 7. I ask it form him and just go through the new ios 7. It was really impressed me at a glance. It's new appearance, features and it glassy effect and every thing are really fantastic when compared to the previous ios 6.
And one important thing he was said to me. It was, that we can easily jailbreak ios 7 through "Tethered" 1.0.1. and can be paired with any device. The app is already available at the apps store.
All I need to know, is that correct? If it's correct, then I can reconsider to buying a iphone.
Tcool, 09 Jul 2013No lies please.See. EVERYTIME you see a negative comments. You are becoming offensive. That is just one of the common problems with samsung. Especially the service
Bought S4 LTE a couple of days ago. From first day cannot hear other party in call. With speaker on or with head set it is OK. Took it to Service Center. Found the unit is defective. Wondering what is the QC policy of Samsung!! They take three days to repair and no replacement, eventhough it is brand new. But I am not alone, there is a huge rush in the Service Center...
