The similarity with the S3
We have all noticed the similarity between the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Samsung Galaxy S4. The only difference between Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S4 is the bigger screen thus S4 users cannot really stand out from their fellow Galaxy S3 users.
Too much plastic.
Plastic is not a good finish for such an elegant and sophisticated phone. But this seems to be like a Samsung S series signature. We hope they will change this feature for the next phone series.
These two shortcomings are purely based on the taste of the one buying the phone. Overall we can say that the Samsung Galaxy S4 is one of the best of the Galaxy S series from Samsung. Would the Samsung Galaxy S4 be the next phone you would invest in? Share your views!
