Samsung explains why there's no FM radio in the Galaxy S4
Have you wondered why the Galaxy S4, which is probably the most feature-rich phone we can think of, lacks a simple thing like an FM radio? Well, we now may have an explanation as to why Samsung decided to leave this out, and no, it doesn't seem to be a technical issue. reports that Samsung Russia has answered their inquiry with regards to the absence of an FM radio in the GS4, and here's the translated response they have received:

There you have it - no one cares for good old FM anymore! Or is that so? We aren't really sure why Samsung would leave the FM radio out, in case it doesn't present a technical obstacle of some sort. Samsung is definitely not the kind of company that would avoid putting too many features in its products, like some others try to do, so this kind of answer doesn't seem completely honest to us.

What do you, guys, think about this? Will you miss having an FM radio in the GS4?
