Comment: outstanding phone can't fault it in anyway best phone out there by a long way
Good: It feels good to the touch, and (getting) the wave for it to roll through papers
Bad: The 'getting started' and 'handbook' reminds me of "San Izal' toilet rool
Comment: A bit of a fuss to move contacts over from Kies, if I had the old S3 one it would not have been a problem. I purchased the cover for the phone m when cloudey shows moving clouds. I am a happy man, till somthing might go pear shapped!ade by Samsung, it's expensive at £44 odd but it replaces the back cover and wraps to the front with protective window, the clever bit is the time and other info comes into the window, when a call comes through the red and green circles show in the window and a swipe takes the call without having to have a flap open, and waving in the breeze. Other silly things I like is the weather
Comment: I have the s3 and my mother (an iphone user) was due for a new phone, so I suggested she get the s4. Now she loves the s4 and wonders why she ever had an iphone in the first place. Enough said there.
Comment: What about the octa core handset is it even more powerful than quad core or more or less the same
Comment: Its a great phone
Bad: Nothing, except the price, which will probably see a decline soon
Comment: IMO: the most Powerful, Beautiful phone I have ever used. Beautiful pictures with the 13MP camera and I have the octa-core version and have yet to experience any lag or crash whatsoever. I don't care about the polycarbonate body, it still has a premium feel to it and the screen is beautiful. Like the slogan it is truly a "Life Companion", till it's rivaled by something more powerful, with a better screen and hardware.
Good: It haves better games .
Bad: The battery life.
Comment: I love it I want it please tell me ware to get it!!!
Good: Good screen size and resolution
Bad: Feels like a very cheap, very breakable handset. Battery life doesn't hold and even at full is poor
Comment: Never owned one, but trailed it with others in the store, the device feels flimsy and cheap, and the battery life is very poor
Good: Don't really know, depends on which review you read!
Comment: Funny how the TechRadar review says it has good battery life.
Who do we believe?
Bad: Ridiculous size Can't install apps on the SD card???
Comment: Sorry but you'll still look a plonker hefting this thing about.
And is it true, you can't install apps on the SD card?
Not amazing and makes me remember the not so happy days of scrabbling around for storage on a HTC Desire.
How incredibly crap.
