Samsung officially announces Galaxy S4 U.S. availability: seven carriers and seven retailers to get it from April
Samsung has officially confirmed that its Galaxy S4 flagship Android handset will arrive to seven U.S. carriers and seven retailers starting in April.

The Galaxy S4 is already up for pre-order at AT&T and U.S. Cellular and should soon hit Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless as well as Cricket and C Spire, beginning in April. Sprint has just announced it will have the S4 for pre-order tomorrow and it will launch on April 27th for $249 on a 2-year contract.

The Galaxy S4 will be on the shelves of the US biggest retailers: Best Buy, Best Buy Mobile, Costco, RadioShack, Sam’s Club, Staples, Target and Wal-Mart.

“The Galaxy S line of smartphones has achieved momentous success with 100 million in unit sales worldwide in less than three years. This validates that we are addressing what consumers want from a smartphone,” Samsung Telecommunications America president Dale Sohn said.

Samsung has not yet announced pricing and availability, but those should become clear in the coming weeks.

So what is the reason for nice HTC body if you anyway gonna cover it with a case??? Or leave it without case and enjoy scratches and dents very soon. That's why I will definitely buy SG4.

Samsung is starting to become worst than Apple

Samsung has nothing to do with it. Each carrier decides how much they want to subsidize the phone. Sprint choose a different price than others. The price point is on Sprint.

The Galaxy S4 is a nice choice if you want a phone with hardly any usability but a ton of gimmicky features. It's the new trend amongst kids replacing the iPhone.

I already called it. By no means am I an Apple fanboy but Samsung fanboys are the literally the worst. Zealotry of Apple fanboys and arrogance of Android fans. And lol@review battles.

How is he losing phone review battles, when he doesn't make phones? He's a consumer dude, as long as he's satisfied with his purchase its a win for him either way.

Dude ur a flaming idiot!! I've seen many a video and asked my Verizon rep about those what you called gimmicky features. They are very very useful...people who say the features are gimmicky are just jealous because their crap iphones or htc's don't have the same usable features. It's going to be the best smart phone on the planet and I am on Verizon, the best network on the planet!
