She's beautiful isn't she? Dressed in her polycarbonate outfit, she glows with charm and appeal, begging us to get our itchy hands on it. Of course, we're talking about the new Samsung Galaxy S 4 smartphone, which just got announced officially. Although we're yet to give it a proper review, we're pretty content with what we've seen so far. Some of you are probably impressed as well, which comes as no surprise since the smartphone is powered by capable hardware and chock full of exciting features. But would you buy one?...

I'm a loyal Samsung customer and will stay their customer, though I'm not fully satisfied w/ the design of the S4.

I'm a samsung fan too but not to the point where i'll just buy anything they'll offer great specs but disappointing design compared to others , there for i might go with the Sony xperia ZL .

xperia is a good looking phone but s4 is better in hardware and software
and the s4 dont look ugly at all

s4 is not ugly but you will be stupid buyer if waste your money on s4, buy galaxy note 2 if you love samsung so much,
xperia z is the first sony device with last year quad core soc but it's good enough to compete with s4 or htc one
until this day only sony is able to put beauty and durability on their device
btw i have nokia E6-00, galaxy Y and galaxy s 2 but i will sell crapsung device and wait sony or nokia flagship

Design is more than just what the case looks like...Real design excellence is better everything and bigger screen, but in a smaller and lighter body; a faster system that's more efficient; one that doesn't sacrifice practically for looks. The technology is beautiful as well. I don't think you understand design. What I said doesn't just apply to this phone, I'm not saying this phone is super beautiful, but design is so much more than looks.

I am not too bothered by the design but instead the fact that it has a sub par gpu. I know it's fast enough for most of the users but it doesn't support OpenGL ES 3.0 which does not make it future proof. And since i plan on gaming on my phone allot, it is kinda of a bummer for me.

Loyal for what? Samsung is multi-billion dollar empire, you don't owe them your loyalty.

to those who choose xperia z, one, lumia920, and any other beside samsung, please dont beg for mercy, because you are going to regret it

its just a mobile who the hell would beg mercy for it? lol the overzealous behavior of the comment section on most of phone arena's articles seems to amaze me time and time again.

but doesnt it look better than the sg3? it was too round...

The design of the phone sucks, but hey, we have to sacrifice something with every phone! And looking at the other features they have to offer, I'll be buying one.
I'd choose the removable battery, micro sd card, a more powerful phone and the cool software features any day over the design!
203. Dynamac (Posts: 24; Member since: 01 Dec 2012)
Exactly, not to mention 95% of the general public puts a thick ugly plastic cover on their *beautiful* iPhones, HTC Ones and Xperia Zs....so does it really matter? If you think about, they all end up looking and feeling like plastic, so Samsung is just making things simpler for everyone.

What happens to the Galaxy Note 2? It has to be included
166. PAPINYC (banned) (Posts: 2315; Member since: 30 Jul 2011)
Agreed!!!! Especially since, the Galaxy Note 2 was released after the iDud 5 and, somehow, that limited phone made the Poll list??!!
If I were in the market for a new phone right now I would buy the Galaxy Note 2 [again] since it's the BESTEST phone I've ever had.

you missed up the difference between loyal customer and a sh**p customer....
123. KennethP4V (Posts: 33; Member since: 15 Mar 2013)
hahahah i look at the result of the poll and laugh hard, after all most people do love brands and they dont buy what they personal like. Look at the poll, Nokia Lumia is #1, winning by a huge margin too. But real world data showed that Samsung and Apple lead. Also, the thing is, recently i see a lot of praises for XZ, but still everywhere i go i see either iphone or samsung, i never see some sort of Xperia

If the S4 looked like the artist renders ,..there was one in particular that had front speakers ....than i would definitely get it....maybe next time for the S5
