Comment: "Is it better than the iPhone?" Come off it, its predecessor was better than the iPhone! The S4 is competing against other Samsung products, in the main, and its job is to reinforce the clear water between it and the iPhone. The spec alone achieves this. Personally I'd rather stick with the unalloyed gorgeousness of the Nexus 4 but the S4 is going to be huge in every sense
Good: new features
Comment: i like eye scroll :-) i hope i will own one soon
Comment: Is the back camera lens sticking out? The photos imply, it is. The phone is as thin as its thickest area. What is the point in slimming the gadget if the lens sticks out.
Comment: same like s4
Good: Nice looking screen, battery
Bad: no real great innovation?
Comment: Hardware not really better than anything out there or coming out? The octo-core won't be released everywhere due to complications, and the better features have ALREADY been released by LG, such as smart scroll and smart pause... I only give this 2 out of 5 instead of 4 simply because of the bloated 5/5 reviews... this phone is overrated and doesn't appear to be any better than what's already out or coming out around the same time...
Good: super - phone
Bad: lac style and class like iphone
Comment: best phone ever no doubt, but was hoping for a premium class design, body and style. wanted more attractive looks wise
Good: Faster with a more powerful battery, 13 megapixel cam and plenty of other goodies
Bad: None I can think of right now though Im sure my operator EE will charge a fair bundle if I want to use 4g.
Comment: Always knew that Id upgrade from my S2. Will be a great step up..can't wait to get mine.
Bad: looks too much like the s3
Comment: This phone seems like the next generation and Samsung have now finally killed I phone it seems. I will get one when my contract runs out in October no doubt about it. Samsung have done it once again, Hit higher than there already formidibly high bar
Comment: would be great to upgrade form my galaxy s 2, the design is not the different to piss galaxy s3 owner who just bought it 6 months back..
Good: More of the same over the s3. Battery looks useful
Bad: Plasticky, nothing revolutionary that's useful, not waterproof
Comment: Was waiting to see about getting this. The s3 doesn't have lag so until there are more apps the faster processor isn't going to be that valuable. I'm hoping the feel of the phone is better than it looks. I turn off the hover functionality on my note 2 because it gets in the way of what I want to do. Samsung need to have improved that for hover to add value. Overall, yeah ok nice but a bit underwhelming. I was hoping for fireworks and a waterproof phone. I won't be upgrading.
