We are not gipsies/Roma(how are they called),we are romanians(white skin),descendants of Geto-Dacs(Thracian tribe) and of Roman Empire(that's why our country has that name Romania->from Roman Empire).We are a latin nation,with the most pure/stock latin language.
Gipsies have migrated to Europe some centuries ago from North India.They are everywhere in Europe,not just in Romania.The problem with them is that they don't like to work and instead of doing that they are stealing.
Please,don't be brainwashed by the European Media Agencies.

I'm also from Europe, from Lithuania and here in Lithuania we also have a problems with gipsies, majority of them are selling drugs in my country. :(
But as I have told before, I understand that not all Romanian citizens are gipsies and or bad people. :)

"I'm from Romania and i apreciate that you didn't offend my f**king country even if you will have enought reasons."

I understand that not all Romanian citizens are bad people, there is also a good people. There is no country or nation without bad or good people, all countries and nations has good and bad peoples. :)

Excuse me I'm not an expert, but wasn't Romania just a province in the Roman Empire? Like under occupation!?

Kind of, ithink. This country was and still is a wealthy country from the perspective of natural resources.And the roman Empire conqured this zone and filled it whith roman soldiers.The people of Dacia were forced to learn latin in order to trade things and speak with the occupents.And also some soldiers married some of the womens or just have babes whith them.Because of those Romania is a country whith very stock latin language and roman gens.

I didn't know that the Romanians claimed Roman decendence. I'm not looking for a fight, and I do respect your national feelings, but Rome conquered Dacia and held the region for less than 200 years. It seems a bit far fetched that the Romans though of the Dacians as their equals. Romans killed, raped, took slaves and destroyed all over the Balkans, I don't think that they treated the Getae and the Dacians any different. The Ottomans held the Balkans for 500 years and no one claims Turkish heritage. Anyways as to your original post, out of 193+ countries in the world, to be the 13th it is one of the top. @PhoneArenaUser, it's twice as fast as the internet speed in UAE and Israel, and they are freaking rich:)

"it's twice as fast as the internet speed in UAE and Israel, and they are freaking rich:)"

And that's why in my comment #16 I have wrote:

"...I agree that situation with internet speed in Romania is good..."

And then according to the internet statistics, Top 10 by world countries, I have said:

"...but it is not enough good to say that Romania have one of the best internet speeds in the world..."

Of course I admit that overall situation with internet speed in Romania is really good. :)

SGSatlantis, you are from Bulgaria?

Nop,here is no turkish influence in culture,genes or anything.And we were occupied by Ottoman Empire for 300 years,not 500.Anyway,they couldn't conquer us despite having a bigger army for decades.

this is really getting ridiculous, just shows Samsung how desperate to market there phone and pleasing anyone to buy it, to me this is just a waste of time and money, in my country the phone demo was available and anyone could come and try it out, Samsung is becoming desperate with high streak competition, I myself own an S3, and I would not upgrade to the s4, just cuz its 2 miliseconds faster, the only gripe i think i might be loosing is its battery which is rated more, Seriously Samsung has gone nuts with an array of the same looking models, s4 mini, s4, s3 mini, s3, Galaxy Grand, Galaxy Duos, Everything looks alike and its a shame they could not make them look much fashionably sophisticated, The Sony Z and the HTC One proved that they do think of design and there design is much better than the Mock up S4.

For regular folks other than you and I, this is a pretty good (but little crazy) way to attract attention to your product and brand. Simple as that.

You need a suitcase and a helicopter to carry such a big monster of a tablet-device, called phone by Samsung.

137 mm in length? give me a break: It's a smart-tablet, a monster-phone, the smartest ping-pong paddle.

That changes everything... not.
What's over 120 is big; what's over 130 is tablet.

Since you are so sensitive to millimeters, I thought that 0.4 mm will be important for you.

I agree that ergonomics is very important, but I think that Samsung Galaxy S 4 has right size, Samsung Galaxy S 4 is even smaller than Samsung Galaxy S 3.

Yeah, I have normal fingers, unlike... 0.05% of population that feels confortable using a tablet-phone like S4.

If you consider the S4 too big, it means one of the following:
1. you indeed have small fingers/hands
2. you wear tight jeans (you're gay/bi)
3. the phone is bigger than your junk, and that makes you uncomfortable.

I'm 10 cm above average height; the rest of my body parts are proportional with my height.
I don't wear jeans but I wear tight suits especially made for me (I have no problem with gay people).
The S4-tablet is bigger than a phone - any phone - that's why I call it a monster.

I'm glad you didn't take offence with my comment, it was humorous. I have nothing against homo-, bi-, metrosexuals or whoever wears tight jeans, nor with people with small hands:)
I know screen size is a personal preference, but the S4 is as big as the S3 and in all practical sense as big as every other 4.6+ inch smartphone. It is closer to the iPhone 5 than to a tablet, and is still pocketable and one hand user friendly in my experience(with GNex and S3).
