Head of Samsung Design America sees future models adjusting to users
plastic. Once again, Samsung has built its flagship model using plastic leaving the phone feeling a lot different than say, the HTC One which is made of unibody aluminum. Miloseski says that the design process doesn't begin with a particular material in mind. In stead of saying, "Let's make a phone out of metal," the executive says that the decision to use plastic is based on looking at different preferences and tastes and putting it all together in the final design.
The Samsung executive made it a point of saying that the Korean tech giant wants to put less glass and hardware in front of users, helping the mobile world get closer to its goal of connecting people to people.

I bet Samsung design office have a big copying machine!

i think samsung is smart the only way they can have money is copying and sell plastic toy,
and they know that to sell more plastic toy is just use their money on advertise and pay some reviewer to say their product is the best and other smartphone is suck and they learn that from apple
so when other manufacture use their money to do some research for new innovations and use premium materia, samsung is selling more product

When u have 'better' options available y do u even bother to comment on such a bad phone, r u insecure that ur 'premium' choice will fall short in front this one
let the sales do the talkings ;-)
15. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1127; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
first i know samsung selling more phone than other, cuz i rigth now i have nokia E6-00, galaxy Y, and galaxy s2 but,
in may country samsung sales will say everything to sell that plastic toy,
oh i'm insecure maybe because my plastic toy can't satisfied me
but don't worry i will sell my plastic toy and buy premium smartphone like HTC ONE OR XPERIA ZL, or maybe i just have to wait new innvations from sony cause rumors say they will release new flagship
i just follow what samsung mobile chief j.k shin say ''. Innovation is what will get consumers to
buy new devices'' :-)

Please stop complaining about Samsung plasticky phone, actually all phones are made with plastic only the back cover are used different materials. If you really care about premium materials and less feature phone, don't buy Samsung phone. You have a freedom and all the choice to choose from.

im writing this comment on my psvita
50. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1127; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
plastic is ok if samsung use high quality plastic, s3 is 2012 premium device with suck plastic quality, is easy to add some feature in android device and many feature in samsung is just copycat feature and anybody can use it since is not samsung innovations
oh yes we all have freedom but i just doesn't agree with what mr shin say innovations is what make consumer buy new device
But aggresive marketing is what make consumer buy new device thats why samsung sell more phone
43. nexusalltheway (Posts: 69; Member since: 28 Nov 2012)
Can u elaborate how GS2 or GS4 cant satisfy you but HTC one will be able to? Please be specific.
52. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1127; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
i think nexus is good enough, but rumors say sony will have new flagship this year,
so the option is htc one, xp zl, new flagship from sony and nexus phone

Yudi, are you just learning type the english alphabet for the first time? You are missing several words in your statement buddy.
92. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1127; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
yeah i just learn english for about 5 days now, thanks for correction, ^_^
33. voxmarc (Posts: 317; Member since: 22 Aug 2012)
new innovations?hahahahhahahaaaaaaaa.....yours is copy of that iPhone 4 material....yours is a brick...S4 introduces gesture which reminds me of tech movies using gestures on their devices and preparation for flexible AmOled screen sony is flexible Oled which never took off because they cant do it..while sammy introduces a a mobile phone with flexible AmOled....your sonny is a H2O and dust proof which in technological term applicable to devices used on toilets,drains,vacuum cleaners etc...
58. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1127; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
copying iphone4 material so if sony use plastic it will copy samsung, stupid xperia z have innovative design it use “skeleton frame structure, omni balance, and ip ratting did iphone 4 have that?
Did gesture is samsung innovations cause we talk about innovative device here just like mr j,k shin say anyother phone can have that, sony the first when it come flexible screen and you will see it in the future, but rigt now they focus on new screen tech Triluminos displays use quantum dot
Sony unveiled a
brand new line of BRAVIA
HDTVs, 4K displays, and for
the first time ever, the
world's first, largest (56-inch)
OLED-panel 4K TV (This revolutionary 4K
monster is currently the best-of-the-best in
terms of light clarity, pixel count, color spectrum,
and all-around display power) just want to show you what the real innovators can do
and one last question did samsung have phone tthat combine beauty, durability and innovations ???

Dude don't hate Sammy to much.. They are the real big thing.. One day they will buy the entire earth..
72. Phullofphil (Posts: 801; Member since: 10 Feb 2009)
Why do people think apple is so origonal the first iphone actually looks like it coppied design off of a couple htc designs but what it did do different is what should already been done and that was the capasitive touch screen designed to use your finger instead of a stylus. Besides that all smartphones a looking the sam in a way. Wich is the smallest amount of phone with the biggest screen space. They are destined to look the same kinda like a computer or laptop wich all look the same.so basically they all copy based on what we as consumers want.
81. rusticguy (Posts: 2828; Member since: 11 Aug 2012)
Basically you are insulting the intelligence of 60%+ buyers who are buying Plastic phones .... aluminum, steel is just a coverup to something else ... now guess what's that cover up all about :)
2. hateftotti (Posts: 146; Member since: 03 May 2011)
Just look at the dimensions of S4.the numbers are exactly the same as S3.
It is even a bit smaller than htc one.
So for me S4 design is perfect because Samsung use 5inches screen on 4.8 inches phone :)
9. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1127; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
have you ever look XPERIA ZL
XPERIA ZL 131.6 x 69.3 x 9.8 mm
S4 136.6 x 69.8 x 7.9 mm
XPERIA ZL maybe not thiner but have more better screen ratio, new design with premium material thats what i call perfect design
S4 just another plastic toy from crapsung with copycat feature but don't worry many people will buy that plastic toy
because they are SMART COMPANY WITH MILLION STUPID FANBOY just like you :-)
12. erdpov (Posts: 67; Member since: 07 Dec 2012)
Just compare screens quality. Sony's c screens are the shame)))))
17. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1127; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
haha screen i know what how xperia z screen look like because i've seen it
its not perfect but good enough
i don't mind if don't like xperia z/zl screen
but you just stupid if say sony screen quality i will teach you some history lesson so you can know what sony can do with their screen technology
1. Sony CLIÉ PEG-VZ90 was released in 2004, being the first PDA to feature an OLED screen
2. In October 2007, Sony amazed the world when they
announced the XEL-1 TV, the world's first OLED TV.
3.Taking 2007's .3mm prototype Sony's made a new one just 80μm-thick. That's about ten times the size of a red blood cell, or
just a tiny bit thinner than a single hair. The whole
OLED measures 4.1-inches in size, and has a 432 x
240 resolution and a contrast ratio of under 1,000:1. It's another world first, boasting that it's the first
time an OLED panel can still stream video while
being rolled up (around a cylinder with a 4mm
radius) and stretched
4. at Display 2007 Expo. Now, Sony has taken wraps off a new 2.5-inch OLED screen, which it claims to be the world's first flexible, full-color
organic electroluminescent display (OLED) built on
organic thin-film transistor (TFT) technology. sony full color oled 48 The novel OLED screen is just 0.3mm thick and is
made of a glass substrate that allows the users to
bend the screen. The flexible full-color display boasts
a resolution of 169x120 and weighs a mere 1.5
there you go it's just small part of sony innovations
just to show you that who the real innovator and who copycat
73. iushnt (Posts: 724; Member since: 06 Feb 2013)
Lol what do I do with that history? Even sony have fans?? So strange!!! What is xperia? Never heard of it. Is that some kind of phone that has mediocre screen and camera with no multi windows, no air gestures, eye scroll, smart stay/rotate etc
13. Taters (Posts: 3501; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
9.8 mm is fatty. Sorry. Totally defeats the purpose of being compact. Just look at the brick Nokia Lumia 920, it's shorter than the HTC 8x but it is HUGE because it is a fatty.
The GS4 is svelte and SLICK.
18. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1127; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
OMG just another stupid fanboy even with 9,8 mm xperia zl still more compact than S3
NOKIA LUMIA 920 10,7 mm with 185g yes is fatty but still feel good in the hand that because nokia use premium plastic and have built in optical
image stabilization another innvations
sorry i just love innovator so much
22. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1127; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
thanks 90ninjas i just get to much serious about this ^_^
31. voxmarc (Posts: 317; Member since: 22 Aug 2012)
s3 is 8.6,,,ok kindly beat the S# first before you compare your Gay phonbe to S4....ever watch ironman?see how tony uses gesture to use his devices....i think s4 were heading to that direction while yours has no innovation at all....the built?grow up...apple innovate that first...but on features and power...s4 all the way....its about brain not beauty.
65. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1127; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
yeah s is thicker but use better plastic, sharper screen, and unik design,
xperia z and zl is using last gen spec but good enough to score over to 20000 and it's smokes S3, and nexus 4 so power my ass even xp v is well capable facing the s3
z/zl is gay phonbe?? they are handsome tough sexy phone
first xp z is the only glass phone with ip rating combine with new frame design
xp zl have best screen ratio and camera button bonus absolutly they have innovative design
is that all feature in S4 is samsung innovations???
Can you find white magic on other phone?? Those all feature is just copycat S4 is well rounded phone but not innovative device like mr shin say
36. voxmarc (Posts: 317; Member since: 22 Aug 2012)
compact my ass! s3 is 8.6 a almost year old device...beat that first.punk.
68. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1127; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
just look on xperia z gues what how thin is your S4 you must tell samsung to stop copying
24. Hemlocke (unregistered)
You got that right, it's slick. Fisher Price plastics usually are.
63. Taters (Posts: 3501; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
Good one. Your comment is butt hurt and pure hating as usual but quite a amusing.
Now go cry in the river while Samsung destroys Sony and HTC again.
69. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1127; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
butt hurt you say nooo i don't care if samsung destroys htc and sony
if you can say samsung device is full of innovations
i can say samsung just use innovation from other company with some prove of course
88. akki20892 (Posts: 3611; Member since: 04 Feb 2013)
lumia 920 for real men and Galaxy s4 for girl......!!! hope you better get this.......!!!
14. osmaankhaan (unregistered)
R u talking about that brick with a washed out screen with no personality?
20. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1127; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
haha you talking about personality
xperia z is a compact smartphone with the best screen ratio and new innovative design
S4 is plastic toy with copycat design and feature
why samsung fanboy so stupid
30. WHoyton1 (Posts: 1633; Member since: 21 Feb 2013)
Haha and your the telling everyone else there fanboys...first it was xperia zone then z and the you said all that be about the old screens...well sorry to dissapoint you but none of that stuff has even come to the market at least the flexible you display from Sammy is close... And as for innovative design of the z etc are you talking about! Yes its a nice design and looks good but innovative really wow that's special..
71. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1127; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
close but not on the market either, but i think iphone the first on the market the iphone5 can bend without break the screen hahaha..
samsung, apple and other company is able to make flexible screen butt the sony will always be the first, and people will never forget the innovator
39. SleepingOz (unregistered)
I like the way you bash the GSIV for being made of plastic(polycarbonate) while praising the XZ which is also made of plastic. Covering it with a second glass panel is enough to fool fanboys.
Best of all, the glass panel, in turn, is covered with guess what....A PLASTIC film. And there're many cases reported on XDA where the XZ lost its waterproof ability when film got removed or damaged.
74. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1127; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
the plastic toy in galaxy is doesn't have premium quality
and plastic on xp z is made from glass fibre polyamide,
the same material
that’s used as a metal
I know about the film you can find it on youtube
can you give me the video please!!!
26. SamsungFan (Posts: 201; Member since: 16 Apr 2012)
Xperia z has a screen with poor viewing angles, sony may have released good quality screens before but now that isn't the case. a camera that can't even beat the iphone 5 and last year processor
Just design is not enough buddy and sony's UI is no match for touchwiz. It is not even comparable with htc sense 5.
28. pyradark (Posts: 781; Member since: 10 Jun 2012)
BUT a design that kill S4 ang Iph5, and ohhh dont forget water/dust resistant. Hahaha, I feel sorry for sony haters their worship device didnt stand at the top instead land with Z and One. Fired you design department
59. SamsungFan (Posts: 201; Member since: 16 Apr 2012)
Just design is not enough, software and hardware is the most important part. In which sony is no match for samsung or htc.
If just compare lookz then you could get an iphone but software ain't good.
Sony has done a great job with design but they need to improve a lot in software development and Samsung constantly update their devices. Xperia s will only get 4.1 it was to compete with s3. Samsung even updated their 2 year old s2 but sony...............haven't even updated xperia s
77. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1127; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
yup xperia z screen and camera is not perfect
but even with last year processor is good enough just compare it with nexus, S3, and dna

S3 is 8.6mm beat that first then we talk...butthurt loser...you can buy accessories on ebay for ZL its called "ArmBucket Strap" strap to your arm fill it with dust and water while using your phone....does ZL have wireless charging capabilities?NO!...beat S3 first...because at the end of the day ZL will sell to stupid fans like you...OH BTW.. careful on the cover of charging port do not damage it...maybe you charge your ZL once a week to avoid over using the cover or else waterproofing is done...dummy..OH YEAH I AM A SAMSUNG FAN I HAVE SMART TV I HAVE TABLETS AND PHONES...SO STFO
51. pyradark (Posts: 781; Member since: 10 Jun 2012)

3. Ratio of the phone
4. Build Quality
then enjoy your S4 while your friends are having fun taking pictures on the beach. cry all you can bcoz speed cant save you anywhere in the world hahahaha
53. voxmarc (Posts: 317; Member since: 22 Aug 2012)
yeah yours is just comparable only to s3....do you have s3?have u seen that 2 connectors at the back...thats for wireless charging...check the review on all techsites...ZL has the worst screen of all...related to it feature water and dust....WASHOUT.
91. pyradark (Posts: 781; Member since: 10 Jun 2012)
its that it? too bad that's all you complain Wash out screen. hahaha
35. voxmarc (Posts: 317; Member since: 22 Aug 2012)
did you know that ZL have plastic on the sides?NO...because what they are telling you are the one they want to market....i know because i sell mobile phones...dumb punk.
47. oister85 (Posts: 408; Member since: 27 Apr 2012)
Sony has nice design and nice audio quality. the software part is really bad like really bad like not even funny. Im saying this becouse i own those devices.
82. rusticguy (Posts: 2828; Member since: 11 Aug 2012)
XZ and XZL prices will sink faster than S4. Sitback and watch :)
90. pyradark (Posts: 781; Member since: 10 Jun 2012)
same as S4, Sitback and Watch your S4 didnt meet the success of S3 :))
3. jedpatrickdatu (Posts: 151; Member since: 24 Jan 2013)
While it's a bummer not to get a new design, the S4 still looks fine to me. It's basically the S3 perfected. I prefer the S3's design a bit though, specifically for the curved glass and the pebble pattern.
5. osmaankhaan (unregistered)
gold, silver r metals and iron,steel r also metals ppl should understand they cannot put them in the same basket in the same way polycarbonate is the most premium in plastic category but ordinary plastic can never b compared to this one
6. MartianMe (unregistered)
the s4 does looks nice but they better not hang on with this design or plastic for to long.changes are really important specially when it comes to android.as for me i'm going to skip it , going for the xperia z this year maybe the gs5 would look better. so see you next year samsung.
60. som (Posts: 768; Member since: 10 Nov 2009)
Plastic is a primary material for all electronic gadgets and no gadget made of solid metal or aluminum.
84. rusticguy (Posts: 2828; Member since: 11 Aug 2012)
Some get orgasms touching aluminum phone cased inside a silicone case ... let them complain :)
7. Suraj3337 (Posts: 44; Member since: 20 Apr 2012)
Apple is gonna sue Samsung for copying its phones name(4s) backwards and calling it s4
83. rusticguy (Posts: 2828; Member since: 11 Aug 2012)
And get scr3w3d all over again if they do so :)
10. davenycept (Posts: 175; Member since: 03 Jul 2012)
To all you guys saying you aren't getting the s4...suuuure i know i will see you ok line like me buying it when it comes out showing it off..you are welcome..
