WIth prices as high as this....
... you're better off just buying a good powerful Chinese brand phone.

Theres never been a chinese brand thats ever been good or powerful. Its all cheap and low quality.
Yi-Long  +   928d ago
Please get yourself informed...
... cause there are already chinese phones on the market which score higher in tests than the last gen A-brand phones (Galaxy SIII and such).

Gizchina is a nice up-to-date site that often reports on test-results. More and more people around the world are discovering chinese phones like Jiayu, and importing them.

"Galaxy was winning in the price race as its features are really good as compare to iPhone 5s features"

what does the writer smoke! S4 is clearly well beyond whats the 5S is going to offer.. S4 is gonna worth every penny, as opposed to iphone with its incremental updates and price.

Samsung is starting to get greedy
CYBERHATER  +   928d ago
Starting, They have been that way! There phones are always 5-600 dollars.

the galaxy s3 blew away the iphone 5 and and s4 will blow away the 5s
steve30x  +   928d ago
Really? I have a Samsung phone here thats €199. So their phones are always 5 - 600?
husomc  +   928d ago
so is apple the only company allowed to charge exorbitant amounts for their products? samsung's products are worth every penny specially if you consider the features & specifications
steve30x  +   928d ago
Everything apple makes is an extortinate price.

@steve30x - You have no idea do you? lol
Samsung never started getting greedy. If you followed Samsung phones as long as I have, you would remember that Samsung have many phones that were above $650. The 2008 Innov8 was $700-$800. The Omnia 2 was $999.

Keep in mind that the Innov8 was not even a touch screen phone. So in actuality, $650 for what you're getting in a GS4 is a reasonable price. Samsung have actually gotten cheaper on their flagship phones.

Does ANYONE ever use every single one of these 'new' features that they add?
The cost is no problem if the tech is right.
These companies are trying to juice the cosumer with essentially the same model as previous.

an octocore and a 1080p oled screen were in the s3?
JB071592  +   928d ago
But then ask yourself this question, why must some need an Octocore or a 1080p screen on a PHONE?
IRetrouk  +   928d ago
Why not? I watch alot of video content on my s3, a better screen and faster internal components is a good thing.
Erudito87  +   928d ago
the tech in phones hsould progress. I mean the highest top end phones have always been around this price; so i dont understand what people problems are. Would you have actually preffered the same specs as the s3 but a completely different design and samsung to call it an "new phone". I guess people like to be annoyed with anything.
