Here's what our readers dislike about the Galaxy S4

Here's what our readers dislike about the Galaxy S4
Last week we had a post asking you to share your thoughts about the Galaxy S4 with our community. More specifically, we asked you to tell us if there's something that you dislike about Samsung's new flagship. And what do you know, the response we got was fantastic! The article easily got more than 250 comments, all of which coming from our enthusiastic readers who were eager to express and then defend their opinions about the wonderful smartphone that the Samsung Galaxy S4 is.

To tell you the truth, some comments were even a bit too enthusiastic and heated, as the discussion quickly grew into a flame war. Not that we mind it, after all, that's what the comment section is for, but what we find quite amusing is how the idea that different people can like different things seems to be downright unacceptable! We just find this very funny.

Anyways, we read through all the comments and picked some which we think represent the complaints of the majority. To summarize, it looks like most of you, guys, dislike the plastic design and uninspiring looks of the Galaxy S4. Other reasonable complaints include the poor call quality and outdoor visibility. Before we leave you with the featured comments, though, we just wanted to say that we tend to agree with most of them, especially the one that says the GS4 doesn't make caramel machiatos, which is something that we did miss to mention in the review... See? Good thing we made that article!











Thanks to everyone for their comments!

Looks like majority of us here hate the build quality of the s4 because it uses cheap looking plastic compared to other phones

well honestly, i do hate the poly carbonate thing, but hey at the end, if it brakes you can buy a new back cover, unlike unibody or glass.

I just wish samsung would return on how they made the back cover of the s2,black galaxy note1,galaxy tab7.7,omnia7. They're plastic and still have removable covers(except for the tab)but they are far more better looking and somehow has a better feel compared to the glossy plastic of the s3,s4 and note2

So now you can see how people are limited so they are talking about one of the least important thing and don't see the advantages of not so easy breakable construction :-) So the end will be: easily breakable construction without replaceable battery and then we have an easily breakable phones like iPhone or nexus 4 And the stupidity wins again 25% of iPhones have broken glass =proof that stupidity wins :-)

"I hate the fact that its not in my possession!!!" by mrraider602 is even shorter.

Uhh....when someone's name appeared on the article doesn't mean that he/she will be famous! To get famous, is to post nice comments, make good points, everyone agree with you. I'm not saying you and Dark post bad comments, but PA is just giving some examples of what readers dislike about the Galaxy S4. :)

I'm not trying to bash you but unless I missed something, I'm not sure there was a pun in anything you said.

I know Dark alright, i know him well enough to make the joke. It was meant for him, it's for none of you. Jezz...it was a joke if you can't understand it, i don't know how you're here.

I'm just sayin'. But oh well, nobody understands me! And this lesson teaches me that never reply to their comment when they're chatting........... Hmm....need a life? I am a human of course I have a life, your comment makes no sense at all! Geez.......this is a bad day for me at PA! Ok, end of the story, just go chat with dark and nathan and just pretend that my comment on this article is invisible. That's all! THE END!
