For the US that is, what about outside the US? Double standards hypocrites.

Bitch about how HTC One or Z cost outside the US but praise the price of the GSIV in the US.

XZ will pickup if this is priced at 55K. I guess ppl will start buying iPhone 5 for 40K on ebay ...

It's not double standards. Samsung has the android smartphone market cornered except for the US. With a $579 price tag in the US and probably $599.99 in Canada, it is now game over unless HTC goes $549 or lower, which they can't now since they spent so much on their own show and advertising to no avail.

649.99 iPhone
599.99 or more HTC One
$579 GS4

Pound for pound the best deal ever.

In Canada it will be worse.

$699.99 iPhone 5
$624.99 or more HTC One(using the one x price as a placeholder)
$599.99 GS4

I am not saying the Italian and Indian markets do not matter but Samsung either makes more with the Galaxy Ace type phones there or they are already Samsung worshipping countries.

i think thats because US version has Qualcomm CPU, the price is lesser than rest of the world which will enjoy Exynos one.

Yea, but the S600 is just as powerful as the Exynos.

In Portugal i bought the Galaxy S3 GT-I9305 (The one with Quad-Core, LTE and 2GB of RAM) for 225€ (293 US$) at Vodafone on a great Sale ;) I love this phone. Now i am thinking on changing my iPad for an Android Tablet.

That was the approximate retail value. And it's still not confirmed. Good price though if it ends up being the actual price. Still rather get a HTC One though.

3. mariosraptor (Posts: 108; Member since: 15 Mar 2012)


hopefully with that price tag it will be the 32gb or even the 64gb version.
otherwise maybe in 2 to 3 months when it will drop a good 10-20%.
although i think that Samsung is becoming a littlelike Apple and wants people to think that their phones will boost their social status.
IMHO no phone boosts your status, unless it is a Vertu phone going along a Rolex or Patek Philippe and wearing an Armani suit.

All you have to do is wait, Android devices are like automobiles. The moment they leave the lot, they start to depreciate. IF you don't need the latest instantly, patience will payoff in the long run.

It pays to wait for 4-6 months on any new model.

So the same money for a 16GB GS4 as for the 32GB HTC One... I choose One. Plain and simple.

12. chistoefurpuffer (Posts: 139; Member since: 11 Mar 2013)


But with the s4 you can use a micro sd card, up to 64gb, which you can't with the One x:

High capacity cards are still quite expensive here and most people don't use them (mostly some 8GB or so). Most people buy a phone from a carrier with a plan and 24months contract and buy a phone that has more built-in storage. Besides, the built-in storage is way faster and it's life span is quite longer that that of an SD card.

55. therealestmc (Posts: 129; Member since: 23 Jul 2012)


And those SD cards are free.

One thing is great with all those FullHD phones coming out,their older versions will become cheaper,and that's great :D :D Because for me HD screen is enough for a phone(even though for me most important is screen brightness levels)!

It does not seem reasonable to pay these amounts of money for a smartphone. A full PC costs about the same.
I hope the day comes soon, that Chinese manufacturers saturate the market with their products, and force a general price decrease.

I can give you a lot of reasons but all HTC fans or Samsung haters do is downplay them as insignificant. The little things count and that is Sasmung outsells the HTC garbage easily.
