What do you dislike about the Galaxy S4?

0. phoneArena posted on 12 Apr 2013, 09:37

Ah, the Galaxy S4! It's definitely one of the very best Android smartphones around, and yet, we're sure that there a a good number of people out there who hate it. By the way, there's a lot people who also hate us, but that's because of our money. Anyway, the Galaxy S4 sure has its enemies, but why? What could be wrong this seemingly perfect Android smartphone? Hm, when you think about it, there are some things that can irritate some users. How about the cheap-feeling plastic? You buy an expensive gadget and it suddenly feels like your 5 year-old son's toy-phone...

So you don't believe a device can be perfect for someone? That's a sad take on things, some devices fit every need a person has and CAN be called perfect for them.

no a device can be perfect to a certain person but please we all kno he stated it as perfection amongst everything, he even admitted he's been a fanboy with his comment

So you also think people can only post comments of one type. Nice little view of the world you have, no wonder so many people jump on you.

ohh wow you really only read what you want, dont actually read what ive commented

plus the fact he admitted he's been a fanboy has proven you wrong on your point. so any comment on that? quick before the regulars come to team up on one person as they need to lmao

and only the fanboys and people like you jump on me, you only see a problem with those who havent bigged up android or sasmung

perfect is subjective to the person, his comment was general and he was classing it as perfect overall for everyone a false and fanboy comment, i point this out you try to defend a fanboy comment .....you seeing the problem?

What I do see is someone getting jumped on, Magnanimus, by you. He commented what he felt and you started a comment war. So what is your problem? Can't let people have their opinions? It doesn't matter if he's a Samsung fan or not, his comment wasn't negative but you flamed him.

Next time be the adult and ignore comments if you feel they're just fanboy praise.

look ive seen your type before and bored of your kind

only reasonable to your fellow android users, so tell me im jumping on fanboy maggy yet you dont know we had a discussion like this before and you came jumping in to cheer him on

so actually your the problem this time as you came into something you didnt need to and blew it up

but you keep trying to take the moral high ground if it makes you feel better...ohh and the ones thumbing down need a life

I love arguing with you dude. It's always so funny 'the ones thumbing down need a life'. Btw, Samsung fans have every right to think its the best phone. B'cus really, the phone beats every other phone out there, and talking about design, which other high-end phone has been able to fit a 5' screen into a case as compact as the S4? So yeah, they used plastic, but look at the reasons why.

They used plastic so it will be easy to replace battery and repair. Look at the Htc One that uses aluminium, you can remove the battery and its the hardest phone to repair so far

Also. Look at weight mate. It's really light

Being a fan of something is nothing wrong....
We all have our own likes and dislikes...
You talk too much about android fan boys bashing others....
But you do the same thing....
Every product has fair share of blind fan boys. Be it android, ios, wp, samsung, nokia,ms, google..
It's just that android has large user base....so it seems to be a big thing to you....
I hope you understand...

Sure, perfection is subjective but bashing someone on his preferences because they don't fit yours is just pathetic.

The GSIV may not be perfect but if you take into account all the specs/features/performances it has to offer compared to its rivals, it is in fact the most advanced smartphone out there. Any sane, unbiased and neutral person will come to the same conclusion.
Not wonder why it received the best score, 9.3, from PA and the title of the best smartphone from GSMArena("With the sheer number of excellent flagships to choose from, if you are looking for the best smartphone, you had it better than ever."http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s4-review-914p12.php ).

Again, if you don't agree, then prove me wrong! Well if you can.. =]
But based on your past comments, AD HOMINEM COMING!! HAHA

Every devices are perfect, it just depends how you think of it.

I can say that the Galaxy S4 is perfect because of the cool features.

I can say that the Xperia Z is perfect because of the gorgeous design and premium feeling.

I can say that the HTC One is perfect because of the gorgeous design, premium feeling and Ultrapixels.

Every devices are perfect!

Oh, and one more thing, Samsung, you need to change the design!

That's all!

People keep calling the material cheap plastic. Its not like the plastic is plastic used in toys. Its freaking polycarbonate. (Same material used in the nokia 920)

Plastic = new catch phrase that replaced Lag, Fragmentation, DOA, and all the other stupid, follow the herd mentality comments.

People use plastic every day without a problem. Put it on a phone and the haters show their ignorance.

i think people actually dont like cheap plastic and cheap looking phones

also talking of herd mentality would be samsung fans throwing the sales comment on everyone who says anything against samsung

besides this article is about what people dislike and even android users say the plastic and design, its not hating its pointing out the obvious

IMO, the overwhelming plastic comments are from Android haters. People who actually own this phone don't make such comments. I've seen the same negative comments from the S2 and GNex. After owning both of them, I disagree with them feeling cheap. Neither felt or looked cheap.

74. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)


well id disagree about the s2, it doesnt feel cheap. but the s3 does. as for the s4 you have to admit its a cheap looking phone.....

and no its not just from android haters, your generalising with no basis besides most on here are android lovers (some to stupid levels)

maybe just maybe people are bored of samsung not bringing out a gorgeous design with premium build and feel...it is a flagship and expensive phone

Did anyone ever complain about the plastic on the nokia lumia 920? NOOOO! Its samsung they all focus on. I dont really get some people

posted on 12 Apr 2013, 10:52 2

88. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)


again the difference for people is samsung looks and in some cases feel cheap, plus the 920 has excellent build quality ........samsung not so much

is it wrong for people to state they want samsung to focus on there build quality and design? cant anything be said to samsung other then mindless praise

I never said Samsung had the best design out there. But u make it sound like the design is so sub-par. It's really not. The design might be monotonous (you have every reason to hate it for that) but the material is polycarbonate with metal chrome on the side. It feels better than the S3 if that makes it simpler to comprehend

Thats some good point dude. People just look for useless reasons to hate on an obviously good phone

ive never said the s4 isnt a good phone, although idiots like sleepingoz loves to jump at defending them and butting in for no reason

heres my view on the s4 - excellent specs with amazing performance overall all in a uninspired design and average build quality
