Samsung Galaxy S 4 specs review

0. phoneArena 14 Mar 2013, 19:07 posted on

Samsung trashed a football field worth of display glass to achieve the HD resolution in the S III, so we can imagine nobody has been walking barefooted around the R&D labs last year as well while achieving the Galaxy S 4's 440ppi OLED breakthrough...

dude doejon ur comment wouldnt even count cuss ur obviously korean. Im sure all koreans feel proud of samsung, so regardless, you will still say it is the best. Samsung just love making people feel that they innovate, lets be realistic not even. The s translator is for sure based on google translator ideology and technology. S beam built on android beam. Tell me which killer feature is exactly samsung's original idea? just the idea of putting the s on all devices or feature such as s voice, s drive, s translator, i can already say that samsung stole apple's idevices idea.

This is so funny because most of you crucifying the galaxy s4 for it build all use cases for your phones

The s4 is incredible. Samsung did a great job with this phone despite what all the hater have to say.

Agreed. It's pathetic how there's so much hate just because it's built with high quality plastic. Other than the cheesy show, the s4 seems completely amazing.

"High-quality plastic"? The Lumia 920 uses that (dyed, milled from a solid block). Thin, painted plastic is hardly "high quality."

Just because one carves and the other molds the same plastic makes it different?

Yes. Casting a solid piece that is the same color throughout, then milling that make a much more durable, and higher quality, body than some flimsy sheet that is painted.

It's not any other type of plastic. Samsung obviously would of taken note on the flimsy back cover everyone complained about. If you even bothered to watch some hands-on reviews of the phone, then you would notice that lots of them say it feels sturdy. Sturdier than the s3.

I'm sorry but 920 is 180 friggin grams. I have a phone for carrying it around (read "MOBILE"), I'd much prefer to have it made of paper and be very light than 180 grams.

Also HTC + Lumia, great material yes, but no microSD or battery, that's wayyy too much sacrifice just for building material. I battery swap almost everyday (desk charger) and I wouldn't buy a smartphone without being able to, doesn't matter what brand. People completely forget these things and always just talk about build quality...pfff....its a phone not a LV bag.

I'm a number one samsung fan, but with such phone I'll never think of even looking at any of their products.

Me too! Sold my S3 already and now I am stuck with deciding between the HTC ONE and the S4. The thing is that if I still have the S3 I probably wouldn't go for an upgrade till 2014. No offense! Samsung could have done better!

Can you honestly go from an AMOLED back to LCD? I keep thinking I should change and HTC looks great, but whenever I look at even a high quality LCD vs amoled I just smile inside knowing that amoled looks soooo much better. Not to mention replaceable battery and mSD slot.
