She's beautiful isn't she? Dressed in her polycarbonate outfit, she glows with charm and appeal, begging us to get our itchy hands on it. Of course, we're talking about the new Samsung Galaxy S 4 smartphone, which just got announced officially. Although we're yet to give it a proper review, we're pretty content with what we've seen so far. Some of you are probably impressed as well, which comes as no surprise since the smartphone is powered by capable hardware and chock full of exciting features.
HTC One, which stands out with its outstanding build quality, and the dust- and water-resistant Sony Xperia Z. Of course, the Apple iPhone 5 and Nokia Lumia 920 shouldn't be forgotten either since they are worthy competitors to any high-end Android handset. So out of the smartphones that we just mentioned,which one you're most tempted to get, assuming you don't own one of them already? That's the question we're asking you in today's poll. Feel free to cast your vote below and join in the discussion down in the comments!But the competition isn't fooling around. There's a number of high-end alternatives that the Samsung Galaxy S 4 will go against head to head, including the
Which smartphone are you tempted to buy the most?
Samsung Galaxy S 4
Sony Xperia Z
Nokia Lumia 920
I'll wait for something better to launch.
I'm perfectly happy with my current phone.
- Display 5.0" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 13 MP / 2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, Quad-core, 1900 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2600 mAh(17h 3G talk time)
I'm a loyal Samsung customer and will stay their customer, though I'm not fully satisfied w/ the design of the S4.

I'm a samsung fan too but not to the point where i'll just buy anything they'll offer great specs but disappointing design compared to others , there for i might go with the Sony xperia ZL .

s4 is not ugly but you will be stupid buyer if waste your money on s4, buy galaxy note 2 if you love samsung so much, xperia z is the first sony device with last year quad core soc but it's good enough to compete with s4 or htc one until this day only sony is able to put beauty and durability on their device btw i have nokia E6-00, galaxy Y and galaxy s 2 but i will sell crapsung device and wait sony or nokia flagship

Design is more than just what the case looks like...Real design excellence is better everything and bigger screen, but in a smaller and lighter body; a faster system that's more efficient; one that doesn't sacrifice practically for looks. The technology is beautiful as well. I don't think you understand design. What I said doesn't just apply to this phone, I'm not saying this phone is super beautiful, but design is so much more than looks.

I am not too bothered by the design but instead the fact that it has a sub par gpu. I know it's fast enough for most of the users but it doesn't support OpenGL ES 3.0 which does not make it future proof. And since i plan on gaming on my phone allot, it is kinda of a bummer for me.

Loyal for what? Samsung is multi-billion dollar empire, you don't owe them your loyalty.

The design of the phone sucks, but hey, we have to sacrifice something with every phone! And looking at the other features they have to offer, I'll be buying one. I'd choose the removable battery, micro sd card, a more powerful phone and the cool software features any day over the design!

Exactly, not to mention 95% of the general public puts a thick ugly plastic cover on their *beautiful* iPhones, HTC Ones and Xperia Zs....so does it really matter? If you think about, they all end up looking and feeling like plastic, so Samsung is just making things simpler for everyone.

Agreed!!!! Especially since, the Galaxy Note 2 was released after the iDud 5 and, somehow, that limited phone made the Poll list??!! If I were in the market for a new phone right now I would buy the Galaxy Note 2 [again] since it's the BESTEST phone I've ever had.

hahahah i look at the result of the poll and laugh hard, after all most people do love brands and they dont buy what they personal like. Look at the poll, Nokia Lumia is #1, winning by a huge margin too. But real world data showed that Samsung and Apple lead. Also, the thing is, recently i see a lot of praises for XZ, but still everywhere i go i see either iphone or samsung, i never see some sort of Xperia
