Consumer Reports votes Samsung Galaxy S4 as best phone of the season

Consumer Reports votes Samsung Galaxy S4 as best phone of the season
Consumer Reports did its seasonal phone testing and outed the Samsung Galaxy S4 as the winner of current flagships on the market. The previous top was LG Optimus G, which won the holiday season tests.

The shop measures by several criteria, including camera performance, and it was overall satisfied mostly with the wide-gamut Full HD Super AMOLED display, the gesture and eye-tracking navigation, as well as the sharing and multitasking capabilities of the phone: "The S4 delivered top-notch performance in the most critical areas of our tests, including the camera," they concluded.

But it's still made of "cheap" plastic, you know..

Lol seems like most people don't care about "premium feel" in hands as long as it's comfortable to hold.

Not at Verizon, which leaves a lot of customers left to not have it as an option.

Well right now the S4 isnt available at verizon either so your point is mute.

Sorry, but my point is not mute. The S4 has been available for preorder for weeks now, while the One isn't available at all. Someone could easily walk into, say, Best Buy, Radioshack, etc., play with one on another provider's network since the phone will be the same, and see if they like it.

More sales doesn't always means that it is the best.
"Toyota sale more cars than Mercedes" so does it means that Toyota is better than Mercedes? Answer is No.
Its quality vs quantity!

Spoken like a Samsung fanboy osmaankhaan. You talk like there is something wrong with people preferring any other android device other than a Samsung one. Seriously you guys are getting worse than Apple fans.....

Choice is GOOD, b/c we don't all want/like the same things.

Not surprising...
I might not like it, but that doesn't make it a bad phone. Congrats!

build quality is the only problem with samsung devices

Well said I have to agree it just needs to stop using that flimsy back plastic which can easily be broken and maybe use matte plastic. Except for that it would be amazing!

It can also easily be replaced with any number of after market battery covers. Bit, no, it cannot be easily broken.

What are you doing, taking off the back piece and bending it purposely?

I checked my note2, sister's galaxy mini2 and s3 and my cousin's note..
They don't have any problem with the build quality. Stop trolling

How exactly is it better... Many people perception of better is subjective it turns out what the the people like most is the gs4 and I see no real difference between it the One

Like Android 4.1 is better than 4.2, Windows 95 is better than Windows 7 etc?

Guess looks wasn't part of the criteria. Anyway S4 doesnt look bad at all, just not the best in design. Well samsung deserve this.
