The Samsung Galaxy S 4 won't be the year's only hot smartphone

0. phoneArena 18 Mar 2013, 11:15 posted on

Right after the Galaxy S 4 announcement, we posted a poll asking you which high-end smartphone you were most tempted to purchase. Naturally, Samsung's pride and joy was on the list, yet it didn't quite get to the top spot. Out of a total of 10 190 participants...

but the poll wont let you participate more than one time. how is it possible?
and 570000 votes are too many.
its really strange. but again i dont understand why the votes of Lumia and Z were eliminated.

i want to believe but im really confused.
how is it possible to vote 570000 times. it will take 10 years to do so! and if you look at this:http://dl.dropbox.com/u/11049698/poll.png
you see that only about 10000 votes were eliminated and these votes were only those of Lumia and Z. you mean only these two had fake votes?
and again i can't understand how is it possible for a single person to vote more than once while the poll wont let them vote more.

from phonearena>
We do not manipulate the polls - we only delete the fake votes. For example one person tried to manipulate the results by voting 55 times for one option and 30 times for another option. We have deleted his votes. Another person was more extreme - he added more than 570 000 fake votes, all of which we have deleted.

the strike of being an enormous fanboy

It bothers me that you actually took photos of the polls.

Although i have moved from slider phones it would be rather interesting to see a slider with a 4.5inch screen and a 5 row keyboard to go with it.

if nokia didn't exist
your phone that you own now will probably not exist .

besides , putting a quad core , 1080p screen and high res camera without any innovative technology stuffed with the camera like OIS AND OVER SAMPLING IN A PHONE , TRUST ME THAT'S NOT INNOVATION

The true enemy is unconditional love or it could be illogical hatred like you have love for Android or hatred for Nokia

Speaks somone who obviously does not own this phone! Well, I do own it and the so called flaws are pure fiction. It is buttery smooth and I can't keep my hands off that premium chasis! Class!!

I guess it is true that haters are always gonna hate.

This is the poll I saw, so in my eyes PA has lost all credibility! Period. People are presumably aware that the Xperia Z sold 140,000 in a few hours in France, is sold out in Japan, Hong Kong, Germany and France. Fake Arena would seem a more appropriate moniker for this site.

Forget the xperia Z, it's just that they haven't gained momentum yet, the successor next year is going to be a total hit. Just pleased about the votes of the iphone xD.

I think all this poll proves, IMVHO, is that typical iphone users are not tech literate. Which is something I believe is already well know. I believe if you asked this poll on CNN or TMZ, you would get a completely different result. And one that is more likely to have the craphone leading. Apple hasn't lost that much momentum, but it is clear the tides are turning. Just not as fast as this poll suggests. All I'm saying is look at the target audience here, or even the comment sections, and you could have already created a unscientific poll based on that with nearly the same results as above.

Don't forget BB Z10, Huawei Ascend P2 and LG Optimus G Pro, the S4 will also have to compete with these smartphones. :)

In my opinion BlackBerry Z10 is not a competitor even for a Samsung Galaxy S III, not talking about Samsung Galaxy S IV.

At least the Z10 is still a flagship for BlackBerry.

Of course it is BlackBerry's flagship.

I agree, why did phonearena give the lg Optimus G pro an awesome review but then not even include it in these polls??

Or we can look back. Last year people still claimed not to be interested in Samsung Galaxy S3, yet it sold more than any other android phone. These results only cover a small amount of people visiting Phonearena. The majority of people buying smartphones dont visit this site which are the real target market for Samsung. And one thing i have realized is that, when the word "samsung" pops up, moto, lg, htc, sony and others attack samsung. So this doesnt represent the sales of s4 at all. Lets just all get that right. Cant w8 for iPhone 5S

And even if Samsung moves away from plastic to "premium" materials (which samsung does have on their new s4), we all gonn claim that Samsung copied so and so. In the real world everyone copy everyone. So we all just need to get a life and move on, and just pray our favourite manufacturers tops samsung, instead of us bashing it, cos us bashing it will not make our fones have all the smart features samsung fones has. Useless or not, rather have it than not.

"So we all just need to get a life and move on, and just pray our favourite manufacturers..."

First you say that we all should get a life and then you suggest to pray for manufacturers... Do you even think before writing?
