Samsung Galaxy S IV gets the teardown treatment, see what's inside

0. phoneArena posted on 14 Mar 2013, 17:18

Unsurprisingly, another set of Samsung Galaxy S 4 photos have surfaced on the web, courtesy of the very same Chinese source that has been releasing leak after leak. This time we're treated to a look at the smartphone's insides - battery, motherboard, chips, and everything in between. Something worth knowing is that the Samsung Galaxy S 4, or at least the Chinese version of it, will pack a 2,600mAh battery...

If only 2 percent use WP8, then the rest of the population must be sheeple...

dear JohnNOKIA, was there any doubt about your 'hate' for Samsung? could your feelings be less obvious? I doubt it some how,

I'm hoping not, I'd like to see at least some more difference with the design.

Wouldn't it be awesome if this was a huge elaborate hoax by Samsung to throw everyone off of the actual handset? Guess we'll all find out in a couple of hours.

I do find it interesting they went with a different sub-pixel arrangement rather than using a higher density version of the Note 2's. Hopefully it looks as good in person.

I actually don't mind this design, I think it's clean. Either way, this would be a huge upgrade for my every trusty S2.

I think samsung would of taken some notes, I think they're not going to use the same flimsy plastic as the s3. I would assume they're gonna use a much harder, durable plastic.

Hypocrite much?

Your biasness is obvious, shows it in your name. Calling Samsung fans and Apple fans trolls is also pathetic.

I like Samsung, Apple, HTC and Sony. If you don't like the company for whatever reason just get lost. Jesus christ, it's f*cking annoying when I see you freaks here.

Hypocrite how? Cuz I like Sony, respect HTC and moto but "dislike" Samsung plastic builds?? Sounds like someone is a bit sensitive

Hypocrite as in calling Samsung and Apple fans are the 'only' trolls. Your comment for example is pretty much a 'troll' comment.

I'm not being sensitive, its just pathetic how everyone goes around being disappointed in a product. Just grow up and shut up. All the company brings out great products regardless.

No products will be perfect, there is always a flaw. For example, HTC One and Xperia Z, you see people complain about "oh no removable battery no thanks". Then Samsung has changeable battery and sd card slot and your all saying its cheap quality plastic. Jesus christ, it's poly carbonate (most likely like S3) which is same as Nokia device. I don't see that being poor.

But the moral of this comment is that, there will always be a pathetic user complaining and trolling.

/End

Flimsy, low-grade, painted polycarbonate like the S3 used is nothing like the solid, high-grade, milled and dyed polycarbonate on the Lumia. That's like saying the steel on a Kia Rio is the same as the steel on the USS Abraham Lincoln.

Agreed, a year ago everybody was sucking up to Samsung for the s3 and the note 2. They clearly weren't committed fans, and fall for good looks with not so good hardware/software.

Though I'd have to disagree with liking apple, I have a deep, dark hatred for apple.

I never did really did prefer Samsung not even a year ago, and you would know that if you been around long enough to see most of my post....

why dont i like em? because all they do is steal others ideas and make it seem like they are the first ones to do it!

cheaters never win, they only win because people "allow" them to win.

this is true, and they are accepted because they support android and samsung only. anyone how says anything posiive about wp8, BB or even android device companies like sony or HTC get 12 samsung fanboys on them

they think because they have numbers there right just like apple fanboys before them

2013 im hoping to be the year samsung falls and HTC,LG, Motorola (stretchin abit) and sony come big for android and nokia gain even more traction and wp8 growth continues

also for apple to stop the arrogant crap and focus on there devices

@Xperia-Knight
I agree wih your point, but be a realist out here, mate. Samsung produces cheap quality phones, I agree, but the SoCs used in Sony flagships are previous year flagship SoCs....

I think Sony and Nokia and HTC should imprvise alot if they want to compete with Samsung and Apple. Samsung and Apple should start making new designs instead of repeating the old ones every year, and Samsung should also keep a check on its materials, whilst Apple should keep a check on the customizablity of iOS...
