Samsung internal test: Galaxy S4: good, but not the best

Samsung made an internal test about the Galaxy S4. Samsung tested all latest high-range Android devices and came to the conclusion. The Galaxy S4 is a great phone but not the best Android device. Since Samsung announced the Galaxy S4 telecom websites blamed Samsung again about using the same design and plastic build quality. Telecom websites compared the device with the Sony Xperia Z and HTC One. The websites came to the conclusion that the HTC One is the best phone as second place the Galaxy S4.


What kind of devices Samsung used to compare with is still a question but read the quotes below.

Galaxy S4: good, but not the best
· Samsung is conquering the smartphone market and leading among manufacturers of Android running devices.
· The test was very impressive, but we do not think that this model can revolutionize the market.

As i bought note 2 instead s3 n s2, its the best device ever. I have no doubt about this s4. To me, galaxy note is the best device i ever had.. and yes maybe this new note 3 will bring new revolution in smart device in the world.. just the plastic things is a little bit annoying to me. I think aluminium much better compare to this plastic thing. And of course the aluminium will cool faster than plastic if we talking about heat.

problems i hate with galaxy phones is that touch wizz is outdated id needs a better u i pref custom menu i always install go launcher so i can have the menu key in the middle the s 4 is just a galaxy s 3 s but its not a bad thing at all spec wise its the best you can get i would like to see a half metal / plastic phone though but my s 2 has dropped loads and works fine i think every galaxy should be water proof and dust proof as standard hopefully this ill be in the s 5 also the audio output is poor on older galaxys i use a other branded mp3 player which has best sound out of any portable item with the fullsound tech on bored would like to see stereo hand set and louder speakers.. i would still get a s4 over the rest as i find i get a better signal with a galaxy phone and i dont know why this is

I think it has to do with the fact that there are two GS4. This one and the water and dust proof model. The dust proof model is listed as best.

Aluminium is no better. All of the phones, it doesn’t matter if they made from plastic or aluminium, will end up in plastic cases. Best body for a phone will be scratch resistant. So comparing aluminium and plastic is nonsence. Use aluminium body without any cover for 3 months and you will love plastic. Maybe corning should start making aluminium cases with gorilla glass layer?

Really bad article, its very fuzzy and not sure what the source or the comparison criteria has been!
If only a Aluminum body make your phone the best than i’m sorry the test is just bizarre.
Being best is very personal but if we are to put it under a objective testing you need to see what does the user get for their money.
Ex: features, all hardware parts (not only the body but also the glass, screen size and quality etc), software updates from the company, customer satisfaction, customization benefit (touchwiz vs Sense) etc….
For me its a clear win for Samsung but some people are obsessed with Aluminum.

One thing…
when i upgrade my EX galaxy s3 im looking for more power or better specs…
last thing i look at is design…bcoz when u own such a phone ur not gonna spend time looking at in..but ur gonna spend ur time looking the screen…playing or sooo..
i think galaxy s4 is a great phone…
like when i bought my HTC One X… better design but then i soled it and bought Galaxy s3… to me u cant even compare these 2 phones…GS3 is way better…
as Xperia z, HTC one and S4… definitely s4 will wipe them out of the market…we need specs more then looks in the end….if u want looks go buy urself a 8800 nokia )))))

Regardless of any of this HOG WASH. The Galaxy S4 is the BEST DEVICE on the market from a software standpoint behind the Galaxy Note 2 of course but ahead of anything else today. You don’t always have to be the best looking to be the best overall. The Galaxy S4 will sell 75 million handsets NO OTHER ANDROID DEVICE will come close.

Truly Sad.
Acknowledging the fact that you actually have a problem is the first thing to do to improve yourself. That’s the only positive news regarding Samsungs statement.

Galaxy s4 is best of the best

They essentially did what I blamed Apple of doing with the iPhone. Putting out the same phone basically, no design chances whatsoever just making it elongated. For some reason Samsung did not realize that they were very much at the top of the market and were expected to wow the crowd instead they basically $h*T out a half assed update. I’ve slowly reached the conclusion that I can’t justify spending $700 on this phone. a) the Exynos vs. Snapdragon chip b) The all plastic design again c) Same Galaxy SIII design d) Announcements of water proof/dust proof versions e) Changes to Note 3 design perhaps all metallic body.

Like I said, I can’t justify spending $700 on this phone anymore.

This post is really badly explained. Who said that S4 isn’t the best device Samsung or telecom websites?
