Comment: "I found these guys are the best, www.smartphonecashin.com - they pay the highest dollar amount out of any smartphone trade-in program out there... They don't accept as many types of phones, but pay the highest dollar amount for the cell phones that they do accept. I was skeptical at first, but found their process to be hassle free and very easy - FedEx Free pickup for your phone, and very quick payment."
Comment: Liverpiggy: why would you want to listen to small tinny speakers(running down the battery fast at full volume..), when you can plug in good headphones or earphones???
or even plug into car stereo or home stereo by usb??
you want FM radio, that gets it signal by plugging in earphones, to get a very bad reception quality, almost non-existent, if you are inside a large building, never mind the buzzing interference created by striplights??
why not just get this??
Comment: WHY do you need SDcard storage, when you have 16 GIGABYTES on the phone???
Good: feature rich. image clarity.
Bad: plastic build. no fm radio. only has a mono speaker
Comment: Add better build, waterproofing whilst retaining the removable battery and adding stereo speaker would for me make it nigh on perfect y
Good: Screen, speed, camera
Bad: Jerky and stuttering UI, overloaded with useless apps, stale design
Comment: I think enough reviews are out now for us to see the S4 could struggle against the HTC One this time round. This review says it's the fastest phone out there with the best screen, but it isn't. Use one and then use an HTC One - the HTC knocks it into a cocked hat. Where the HTC is lightning quick, the S4 lags and pauses, where the HTC is smooth, the S4 stutters. Use the camera - the HTCs is fast, the S4 acts like you put the request to take a photo in the post. The S4 screen is really nice, but not as nice as the HTC. Take it outdoors and the difference is huge. The S4 is a brilliant phone, but it is not the best - that title goes to the HTC One.
Good: Not Apple
Bad: I'll find out when I get my hands on it. Probably battery life.
Comment: Already have the Note 2 and love it. I'll be getting it when my other contract is due for an upgrade.
Comment: It's strange this seems to be a well written review but the star rating doesn't seem to match what's been said. After reading it I'd say the HTC One seems the better phone,
Bad: its not im my hands now
Comment: Mine is coming on Saturday morning and I cant wait. By the way I have games installed on my sd card on my S2 what the f is this reviewer on?
If you are gona makes statments and Cnet get them right will you games can be installed on the SD card and you would know if you bothered to check! . Anywhy I am still excited and a quick note to the Crapple fans. Apple is dead! Long live the GS4
Good: Screen, camera, top softwar & replaceable battery
Bad: Plastic design
Comment: Top notch screen with best camera you can get on any smartphone and some interesting extra features like Air gesture makes it best phone available on the market.. My only wish is I want HTC ONE design with Samsung software, that would be my dream phone.
Comment: I have placed 4 stars as it cannot have a better rating than the HTC One. I feel the review of the HTC One was harsh as the majority of all tech sites and online forums have the HTC One as the preferred device. I feel that Cnet have alternate reasons for the slight snub towards the HTC One.
