Somehow you'd hold it wrong, and it wouldn't work. It's a feature.

I am a Sprint employe and most people are buying the Iphone 4s because of price drop over the super tall Iphone 5/

that's probably more because Sprint has hardly any LTE coverage at all compared to a company like VZW

Or maybe because the iPhone 4S works just as well as the 5, I mean do you honestly need a phone that is slightly faster at facebook or temple run?

samsung galaxy s3 is taller and wider than the iphone 5, so when the iphone becomes so big, what will happen to the galaxy s3( and galaxy note?).........i am asking this because samsung is the company that is more interested in size than any other major company in the world and they forced other companies to make bigger devices, iphone is much smaller and its just right and comfortable to use with one hand
i think that samsung should not make the galaxy s4 bigger than the galaxy s3 which is already too big to use, they should kill the dead space on the front and retain the same screen size, those who want a bigger phone can get the galaxy note 3 and they should leave plastic.....they can do it very easily if they want to....

''samsung is the company that is more interested in size than any other major company in the world and they forced other companies to make bigger devices''
mate samsung never forced any other company to make bigger phones, thats down to the individual company to decide. you cant say smasung forced apple to go with a bigger screen. also samsung arent just interested in size, if the note and note 2 only had big screen as a selling point they would flop. samsung have excellent features on the note/note 2
as for size yeah the way to go would be keep the same size phone but decrease the bezel, use the full front.

when i said that samsung forced other companies to make bigger phones i didn't mean that they have talked to those companies individually, i meant that they have made the phones very big that the other companies didn't want to stay behind, so they also made bigger devices and they forgot about usability....samsung has the galaxy note so they should work hard and decrease the beazel of the galaxy s( ) series phones and make it at least a little easier for one hand operation....they should also offer better support for older devices and the galaxy note should run a few important tablet apps and should work without the smart pen like the new lumia phones......
they should make metallic or unibody devices and also leave the idea of giving the same look to all the devices....

att is restricting facetime over 3g for all customers not on a shared family data plan. unfair att !!!! not everyone has family to share data with !!! i pay for data i should be able to use facetime !!! restricting some customers and not others , so unfair !!! only thing to do is file a quick informal complaint with the fcc. fcc.gov/ccmsforms/form2000.action?form_type=2000B

i was goint to buy one with att untill i found out att wont let you use facetime on 3g unless you switch to a over priced family share data plan !!! all the people hopeing to use facetime are going to be pissed off at att. some customers can and others cant use facetime.... sounds a little illegal doesn't it ???? att going to lose lots of loyal cutomers
