Samsung Galaxy S4 version of Gangnam Style helps launch the device in India
Samsung has been making a habit of putting on a show wherever it introduces the Samsung Galaxy S4. In Times Square, it was no surprise that Samsung turned to a Broadway style introduction. In India, the Korea based OEM decided to go with a version of Psy's 2012 hit "Gangnam Style," complete with special lyrics re-worded to present the specs and features of the Samsung Galaxy S4.

Consider these lines: "441ppi is not just a number / Look at this clarity it's brighter" and "If you like the S3 then this phone is even better / It has an HD screen and is just a lot slimmer." When was the last time that you heard about a phone's pixel density in a song? Well, now you have.

The S4s body is mostly metal... Are you guys seriously so ignorant that you just completely ignore 80% of the phone is metal/glass? If you want full metal a metal back cost about $10. Its not a hard concept that a phone with a removable plastic back can obviously be replaced with a metal one. http://rack.1.mshcdn.com/media/ZgkyMDEzLzA0LzI0Lzc5L3NhbXN1bmdnYWxhLmE2OGMzLmpwZwpwCXRodW1iCTg1MHg1OTA-CmUJanBn/daa04080/ad9/samsung-galaxy-s4-5-of-15.jpg http://www.droid-life.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Galaxy-S4-Metal-Cover.png

I'm not gonna see what's f**king inside of a phone, and I am gonna show it to other people. I don't think somebody is gonna care about how "80 percent of the phone is metal on the inside".

If you buy your phone to praise yourself than you are stupid.

What are you talking about? There is clearly a metal band on the exterior between the glass that extends to the back of the phone, there is then a removable back made of polycarbonate.

thats not a metal band, it's plastic made to look like metal....

And that metal band you're saying that surrounds the side of the s4 is very prone to getting scratches and dents

and where the hell did you see samsung say it ahs a metal band around its phone? you call people ignorant and yet you dont look up on your own facts... the side band is a "FAUX metal" FAUX= fake.... its just plastic made to look premium...

There you go. You're worried about showing the phone to other people. I'm worried about what it can do. Differing priorities

Im sorry but is not all about the build I am saying this is because I have used the HTC One and The S4 and guess what the S4 lags just like the S3 and HTC One is smooth, the only way that the S4 lags less would be removing all the features that samsung added like air view, motion and eye tracking.

I don't know where you've been, but my S3 was fine. It's the HTC One X that lagged behind the S3. I still think the S4 is better than the One in terms of software features. And if you don't like install a custom rom to remove bloat.

In india, samsung, nokia and apple has a good market share.. Htc is unknown there..

Then do i live in Vietnam? HTC has a very good market. Much larger then Apple. Read market reports and then talk. P.S. I am from India.

i think samsung should include a galaxy s4 feature that helps prevent or at least report rape. that'd be more timely and relevant especially for female users.

This song & dance is a part of celebration in launch event. All celebrated peoples will not purchase S4. Samsung celebrated the launch in almost countries (Read the article). Style of show may be vary.
