    Loving that 2600Mah battery! Hopefully it equates to better battery life than the S3. My S3 was great at first, but it's been about 9 months and I get maybe 15 hrs with 2.5 hrs of screen time. The bigger battery plus expandable memory is a huge plus to me over the HTC One.

    I agree with you on HTC...
    I want to get the HTC ONE...
    but i'm afraid once S4 gonna be launch....HTC's price gonna reduce dramatically
    and even though it sucks....people's gonna be all over S4
    You go and buy the HTC One, then after the SGS4 is launched and you see just how much that metal phone isn't what you thought it would be, poor radio signal due to metal interference, no wireless charging, Blinkfeed killing the battery etc.
    The SGS4 is the best phone in the world. It is a beast that beats them all. IMO polycarbonate is the best material for any electronic device with radio signals. After one week my sisters iphone 5 is a mess, all chipped and dented along it's edges. Just the opposite, my SGS3 that I purchased a week after launch looks as good as the day I bought it. There isn't a mark on it and I don't use a case. Drop both phones and see which one fairs the best. I like the look of the SGS4, I think the HTC One is out of shape, very tall and too narrow. It is well made with a very good design but it will be a mess very fast. Polycarbonate (plastic) is the material of choice. The SGS4 is the best phone for 2013+.

    I think you're being a little unfair towards the One. It has plenty going for it, it's definitely one of the best phones ever made, no phone is perfect and honestly even drop tests can't accurately show you which one would survive a fall better cause Chaos Theory dictates its impossible to tell how an object will land once it starts falling, even the tiniest shift can cause any phone to dent or the screen to shatter. Plus if you're an HTC fan the One won't disappoint in the slightest.

    hi guys,
    just wanted to confirm something with people who have an idea about this. Is it true that the S4 doesn't have an FM radio ??
    This can be a potential deal breaker for me, n I cannot understand the logic behind such a crazy decision on Samsung's part, if true !!

    Problem HTC will run into is not being on the nations largest carrier. Still don't get why they couldn't work something out with Verizon.

    Any benefit to having the newest version of Wi-Fi "ac"?
    Likely there aren't many "ac " capable routers out there.

    Air Gesture in S IV require particular attention. It seems that Samsung has borrowed a bit of what it had on Galaxy Note II. When you use the Air Gesture feature, you will be substituting your fingers for the pen. So the next time you have to operate you Samsung Galaxy S IV with greasy fingers, be assured you do it without soiling the device; that is assured.
    This function is similar but their goal is to move through menus making gestures on the screen, without ever touching it. For example serves to scroll through photos or move through the various home screens.

    Yes, I would like to know too - as I would not give up my 32gb S3 for a 16gb S4 - I have 8gb left out of my internal 32gb and 38gb left on my ext 64gb card in my S3.

    Sadly, I'm not sure where exactly to purchase the international version. I assume you would most likely have to import it from somewhere in Europe.

    What about warranty ? I have the iPhone 5 and was thinking of switching to the s4 finally but I like apple 1 year no hassle warranty I mean I can walk in the apple store with any problem and get a replacement phone on the spot as long as they can replicate the problem I'm having and they fix one cracked screen once so that's a saving. The s4 features and bigger battery and stuff look nice but to me customer service is what I like also like a big package can anyone tell me if I'm having problem with the phone do I go to say att or what.

    "AC" routers are becoming more of the norm due to the demand of streaming media. Most of the major router companies are making them (granted the prices are a little high.) I have one the problem is that nothing on the market really supports the wireless adapter 802.11ac yet. Well the S4 for does...

    I was wondering how the antenna is on the S4? I currently have the S3 and I drop calls all the time in my house. Granted I live in the country and signal can be an issue but my g/f sits right next to me with her Razor Maxx and has no issues ever with her signal strength (we both are on Verizon.)

    I live in one of those houses too. The S4 definitely holds on to calls that would have certainly been dropped by my Bionic
