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!

If Sprint prices the 16gb model @ $250, it would seem they've decided to push the HTC One. I've owned multiple devices from each manufacturer. Both make excellent products. My preference right now would be the GS4 32gb or 64gb model. If the HTC had a 2600 Mah or (preferably) larger battery, and expandable memory, my choice might be different.

so far the HTC One and the Sony Xperia Z seem like the best choices because the Galaxy S4 will be pretty much the same as the Galaxy S3 except it will cost more :(

I would much rather have a Galaxy S4 than Xperia Z. The screen on the Xperia Z is pretty meh, and Samsung has done MUCH more to support their devices than Sony.

Nice move in Samsungs part. Idk why they made the 64GB One only available on ATT. Maybe if it had an SD slot, it would be more understandable. They need to stop that exclusivity crap if they want more sales.

wow no SD card slot!?!?!..if this is true then i think ill pass.for me i need to be able to change SD cards..all my media is on my SD card

..sprint wants $250 for the 16GB then i guess $300 for the 32GB??

AT&T does that same crap man. I heard sprint let's you uninstall it now.

49. SprintGuy26 (Posts: 66; Member since: 21 Mar 2011)


yea they all add extra BS apps....not sure about that but what sprint should do is have recommended apps and having the choice to download the app vs the phone already having the apps by sprint then the user has to go threw all kind of crap to remove the apps...

Sprint ID,Facebook, game demos etc...if i wanted any of these apps i would go to the google play store and download them

Should be around $600-$650 unlocked once they are official. Unless your on a CDMA network DO NOT pay full price for the US version, the international has a better cpu/gpu and it has all the US bands.
