Samsung Galaxy S4 review
7 January 2014
Summary: Years ago, people either bought an iPhone or “a Droid." Verizon’s marketing power, those insane robot ads, and maybe that just-close-enough naming convention made the carrier's Android phones virtually synonymous with their operating system. But now I hear people every day saying "Oh, is that the new Galaxy?" or "I don't really want an iPhone. I think I'm going to get a Galaxy.
Pros: Fast and powerful performance, Excellent camera, Gorgeous display, Lots of useful extra software
Cons: Unpleasant, cheap design, Sheer number of features can be overwhelming, Performance can suffer in odd places
Conclusion: Samsung is living the dream. The Galaxy line of phones is becoming synonymous with Android for some people, thanks to quality being consistently delivered, but strong marketing too. LG's volumes are lower but it takes one hero device to act as an awareness-raiser and that doesn't get much better than the LG G2.
Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One Google Play Editions – Android phones for custom ROMs
5 September 2013
Conclusion: The HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition were released earlier this summer and you can find them on sale in stores and online SIM-unlocked and without a contract – the price is $600 for the base model of both phones, which is on par with the competition and it makes the choice between them kind of hard – since most of the specs are similar, the decision should mostly be based on whether you like one design or the other.

Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-Advanced – the refreshed S4 is pushing the limits on both data and processing speed
15 August 2013
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A has launched in South Korea last week and it has already sold over 150,000 units – pretty interesting considering it’s only available on SK Telecom. SK Telecom and LG Uplus are the only networks to have LTE-A up and running, by the way. The S4 LTE-A costs $800 without a contract, which is more than the original S4, but it could be worth it if you value your Internet speed.
HTC One vs Samsung Galaxy S4 – it’s a really heated battle at the top
11 August 2013
Conclusion: HTC One The HTC One is already on sale – it goes for $100-200 on a contract depending on the network, or $599/$649 unlocked without a SIM for the 32/64GB models, respectively. That’s cheaper than the midrange iPhone 5 , which is impressive for such a handset, and it’s also cheaper than the Galaxy S4, which makes it very attractive for anyone.
