Yeah but the s4 is brand spanking new dude. C'mon bro Samsung made a sweet device, but they dropped the ball on the looks. I guess you had to diss the iPhone on "GP" huh?

To tell you the truth, the iPhone 5's design is even worst than the SIV's. I'm not an Apple hater by the way.

Is it just me, or the iphone with it's giant bezel is looking more and more like an old design?

The iPhone has kept its giant bezel because they want the bezels to be symmetrical, the home button is very iconic, so Apple doesn't want to change their home button which means they have to kept the bezel giant and therefore a screen small.

Apple is trying to get money to make a bigger screen and come up with better softwares.

I don't care about the plastic design at all. Why? Because it will be wrapped in an OtterBox case. Using a phone naked (without a case) terrifies me after I dropped my S3 on concrete from 6ft. last year and the screen cracked. Got a new one 3 days later so it's okay now haha.

Why must you buy an extra case for a premium flagship which you paid $700 for?

But maybe you are right, putting the s4 in a case will be one way to hide its hideous design!

Why pay $700 when I can get it for $400 or possibly for free?

Iphone will always be that TINY PUNY phone piece of crap what's the point when APPLE can't redesign their own phone

The reason why apple can't make a bigger screen is because they know their fans cannot afford the jacked up price for just a glass and the same junk on the inside.

Why does the s4 look slimmer?

posted on 15 Mar 2013, 02:21

32. vincelongman (Posts: 4569; Member since: 10 Feb 2013)


I thinks its because the S4 has curved edges

Unfair competion. iPhone is a child against that papa of a phone .

you do know your idiot comment can be flipped, as children nowadays are more tech savy you can argue your saying the iphone is the smarter phone plus calling the s4 the ''papa'' can be seen as its old and dated

please if your gonna make senseless comments with run of the mill hate try harder

apple was growing well until the tree next door started to grow faster and over shadowed the apple trees. Now they can't even see past the shadows to move ahead...poor fruits....

Korea should just focus on creating lower-end phones, leave luxury goods (incl. smartphones) to the hands of the Westerners

Everyone knows how much smarter the asians are to the americans. Look at your president as an example....he's probably using an iphone bc he can't figure out the more sophisticated Androids...especially ones like the Samsung's. lol

"but it simply lacks the impeccable construction of the iPhone 5’s brushed aluminum casing."
- it comes scratched out of the box !!
- apple: you re unboxing it wrong !!!
