Your S4 is of no match with the dust/water resistant + sleek and elegant + durable glass body of SONY Xperia Z! Neither with the aluminum case of HTC One! No. Not a chance evaaaar! ;D

The bitter truth is haaard to accept. So go on waiting for your plastic inelegant phone! :PPP

ugh too many sony fanboys here nowadays.. the sony xperia z isn't that great dude. 2012 processor (while still good, isn't the best for a flagship 2013), washout screen with low contrast and terrible black levels and less than spectacular viewing angles. you need to open a flap for every port and tbh i dont see the point in going underwater with your smartphone too much. the sony android skin is a bit buggy and isn't as smooth as touchwiz or even sense 5. glass on the back will also shatter easily (dragontail glass is only on the front, standard gorilla glass on the back) and lastly the build isn't very ergonomic

personally im digging either the gs4 or the htc one.. leaning towards the one more i think. htc one's screen is on the whole better, speakers are awesome, best front facing camera and decent back (could be better i admit), ingenious and nice software features which aren't gimmicky at all. build quality and design is spectacular (better than xperia z imo) and snapdragon 600 is the new processor king. is there any contest? htc one > xperia z. I even think the xperia zl is better than the z

and don't forget htc one will support open gl es 3.0 games with it's adreno 320 while the s4 will not.The s4 is not future proof at all as we'll start seeing games made with open gl es 3.0 games end of 2013!!

Actually The S4, if it has the SGX544MP will dupport OpenGL 3.0. At least my iPad does with it's SGX544MP4.

Wow! So you have the ONLY iPad in the world that supports OpenGL 3.0 then? I'm officially impressed, as SGX544 does NOT support OpenGL 3.0, neither does SGX554, only PowerVR 6 (Rogue) does...

Hahaha full of reason just to cover the ugliest S4, Dude Xperia Z is made for fun and unexpected accident. Sure hardware is outdated but million of people doesnt care, as long there is quadcore on specs its fine. Same as display, people will choose elegant design than chep O plastic, millions doesnt even care with the quality of display, as long as they can watch, text and surf and play they be fine.

your experia Z is no match to S4's confirmed specs octa 5410 and PowerVR SXG 544 graphics....you can dip all day long your device while we enjoy the power and smoothness of s4...and i love plastic...cheaper to replace and no worries....

Its quad and if you want to enjoy the smoothness, get Windows Phone

I have my doubts for this being the real deal.

if you look at the several phone covers leak over the past week, on comparing, the flash and speaker are not placed as can be seen from the covers in which they are placed to the left and right of the camera !

and if any rumours could be trusted then it should be from these phone cover company because they receive the cover specification from Samsung. Many of such company are even ready to give a refund if the cover does not fit your GS4.

Also the placement of the speaker might cause difficulty for right-handed as they might block the speaker when holding !

But thats only my guesswork ! :)

i also don't think that's real. if the s4 uses samoled, the display shouldn't be that bland. the htc one display looks better than that and it's not even oled.

It does feature a HUGE BATTERY though which may be a bigger factor than the form. Look at the comparison with the S3:

though I love Samsung's innovation they bring to each phone but if this turns out to be galaxy s4 then i may just have to go with htc one this time.....
No offence but isnt samsung just being too generic with cheap plastic or even polycarbonate......
this is the king of all smartphones for pete's sake.......I just find it very difficult to digest that smasung wouldn't care about our persistent request with choice of material.......
Samsung please dont disappoint us...we have a lot of expectation from your 14th March event......

Sony Z looks ugly and HTC 1 ridiculous. So Galaxy 4 should not be worse than them when it comes to looks. Talk it down whatever u Sammy haters like, the G4 will be the next best seller. If only I can afford its high price!

Why do you think that the One is ridiculous. And if you think that this piece of flimzy cheap ugly shinny thin cheap plastic is nicer looking than the Xperia Z, then i'm sorry but you're wrong
