Good: Amazing phone, very quick, top of the line specs and reliable best phone of the year, brilliant!
Bad: Build quality, made of flimsy plastic
Comment: Overall this is hands down the best smart phone of 2013. It has everything you would want out of your phone and even more with the extra software features which are very useful. It has top of the line specs and brilliant camera. Although I do prefer stock android to the touchwiz UI that's put over android. But the features that come with touchwiz are amazing and very useful! Absolute power house of a phone and very reliable !
Good: Screen, Apps run smoothly, great camera, fast connectivity, no lags (haven't experienced any so far0
Comment: the only problem I had with this device is the battery but dealt with this problem by buying an extra battery pack and a power bank
Good: speed, camera, screen, 1080p full HD, sound, light weight. more room on the screen
Bad: battery life. to much bloatware taking to much space, cheap plastic case
Comment: one of the best phones in the world. really fast and smooth.
I wish the samsung galaxy s4 had premium feel like aluminum frame.
i wish they had a Google Edition in the UK for Galaxy S4.
Good: it's super fast...everything really.
Bad: battery life
Comment: i've had this phone about 4 weeks now and still haven't figured out a lot of the wee gizmos and gadgets...
the speed is amazing,the camera is awesome...it feels fantastic..the sound when you play music is awesome...playing videos is fantastic..
i had the s2 before and loved it...this just blows it out of the water.
the only bad thing is the battery life is a bit crap...u have to charge it every night and i'm not on my phone constantly....but i just did what i did with my s2...went on to amazon and bought a 2 pack of anker batteries with charger and i'll just start doing battery switches...i always have one fully charged on standby.
Good: awesome all rounder
