Haha, nice one. I was commenting in the context of buying a phablet to replace a phone and tablet though.

The samsung galaxy s4 might be a nice addition but it's nowhere near as good as the iPhone 5. The iPhone 5 will still be smoother, faster, easier to use, and made from premium materials.

Samsung is still playing catch up with the s4.

I figured it was only fair. One-post user comes onto an Apple site heralding the 'benefits' of the competition—may as well bring it back to reality.

I'm still using my iP4 because I'm trying to vote with my wallet.

 

I'm dealing with the same conflict you are. I want a bigger screen, but I don't want to switch from iOS to Android. I haven't yet caved and bought a Samsung, but I haven't bought a new iPhone either. I realize the affect this has on shareholders, but hopefully Apple will eventually knuckle under to the pressure I'm putting on them and we can all get what we want.

 

I'm clinging to the faint hope that Apple will offer a bigger unit within the next few months, but that hope is quickly fading. Sometime soon I'll have to decide whether to accept the smaller screen to maintain the interoperability I want or give that up to get a bigger screen. Decision, decisions.

It seems real laggy. I am therefore going to have to conclude that this is a genuine Android phone.

This surf board with a screen is NOT worthy of a media event.

The iPad Mini LTE option is not the answer either. The fact that you even suggest that as an alternative amazes me. There is a huge gap between the two leaving aside the need to still have traditional voice service even if it is used less frequently it is still essential. How would you call 911 on an iPad Mini LTE for example? I can carry a phone like the S3 or S4 in my pocket but cannot carry an iPad Mini as easily. 

 

Whether I am alone or one of tens of millions of other disgruntled and impatient iPhone owners waiting for that elusive iPhone+ with a display somewhere around 4.5" to 5" I do not know. But I will reluctantly abandon the phone OS I prefer to get the display I need. I will wait and see what Apple has in store this year but if they don't release a larger iPhone than 4" I have to buy a phone that works for me and that most certainly is not another 4" display which annoys me daily at how small things look. I can't buy new eyes but I can buy a new phone. 

We'll see how much that Android malware annoys you. 

For your sake, I hope you're right.

Probably not at all. I've not seen anything to indicate that any significant percentage of users have encountered malware, at least what you or I would term malware. The security software folks have a pretty broad definition, and for obvious reasons.

Kids don't care. Especially outside US, t.i., 93% of the world. They want bigger screen. Phone is their primary internet access point.

If I were absolutely forced to have to use an Android phone, there is no way I'd pick this.  The HTC One is a beautiful phone- and I love the infrared sensor power button. Its really the first one to compete with the aesthetics of the iPhone IMO.  Too bad it runs a garbage OS.

I'd hold my horses with statements like that. Until some benchmarks start hitting web.

Yeah I do agree it does not look spectacular, in my book at least. A bit too much like S3. I'd expect a bit more from Samsung's top dog.

But then, I wasn't too thrilled with S3 looks and it sold well. Obviously more than enough people will not prioritize look and premium material selection. People that I know using S3 seem to be very happy with it, down to the last one.

Hardware in S4... if leaks are correct... looks, well, interesting. But only if Samsung managed to control heat, battery life and present performance gain obvious in everyday usage, or at least in as many scenarios as possible. If running citadel demo smoothly at 1080 is the only visible advantage of such hardware, then unfortunately it means that Sammy is also running out of new ideas and going for safe performance-boost-for-performance-sake-only approach, which would be unfortunate.

Most all of which is on 3rd party app stores used on extremely cheap phones sold in foreign countries that Google bans from Google ecosystem. So yes, he is serious.

Unless you go enable installation of 3rd party apps and ignore the harsh security warning Google spits at you and proceed to download random foreign language apps, Android has the same malware risk as iOS.

Funny how at the beginning of the video in the background the sales shpeel is talking about the iPad. Samsung's got a bigger screen, so it's a bigger p.o.s.
post #62 of 81
I predict that the same Samsung loving fanatics people who mocked that the iPhone 5 was "LOL EXACTLY THE SAME BUT LONGER" (except it wasn't, completely rebuilt with different materials) will slobber all over this phone and won't mind one bit that it looks pretty much identical.

I don't need anything. Just stated some facts.

 

Did any samsung phone innovated in any area? No. Are they fast? Hell no, they are the slowest top phones available (experience). Are they cheaper? No. How's their build quality? Sh*t.

Please explain to me what was so innovative about the iPhone 5. I would say out of all the mobile phone companies, the innovation has been coming from Google. Fortunately for Samsung, they get to use those Google innovations.

Time for tape and rubber bands.

 

When I owned the Note 2 this eventually happened daily. Drop phone - back pops off - battery comes flying out.

Linux's not a garbage OS. While you might argue about Android (which I believe is a pretty good piece of engineering, but obviously you disagree, and who am I to say you're wrong? I don't know you, you might be an expert in OS design), I think that both iOS and Android are amazing Unixes, and we are lucky to live in a world where both main OSes are UNIX-based, instead of Microsoft(R)Windows(R)Extreme(TM)Professional(TM)Mobile(TM)Edition(R), or some equally ridiculous idea by Steve B.

Looks like an iPhone to me, and on top of it, is not "real" yet. It's still a "will exist later" phone.

You seem to be one of the angriest members here. Relax a bit and we can have a discussion.

 

There's absolutely no articles I have read that claim the typical Android user has been hit with malware. None. If you disagree then simply link a few articles that show otherwise. Tossing around claims that Android users are X% more likely to encounter malware doesn't say much about how much risk they actually have. How many malware instances "in the wild" in your 78% mention? And how many users are affected? Is it one in 10? One in 100? One in 1000? And where is it coming from? I don't have any doubt that the opportunity for malware is higher on Android than iOS. Much less curation. But I do have real doubts that "malware" is a significant danger for the average Android user, particularly outside of Russia and China.

 

Mixed in with a typical fear and dread Android malware article in January Trend-Micro at least made this clarification:

"However, so far Android malware is not widely used in targeted attacks that are often intended to steal sensitive data, which are still mostly aimed at PCs, Genes points out, "But that could change."

 

And what IS malware according to companies promoting antivirus solutions. Is adware given the same threat-level as spyware? In some reports it is. If an app delivers ads without alerting the user in advance to that behavior it's malware.  If an app reads your contacts without noting it to the user it's malware. If it reads your location without listing it in  the app description, it''s malware. If there's any data that's read such as device ID or phone number yet not listed in the user permissions, it's malware.  The most recent article here reporting on F-Secure even included Android testing software that could be used to root out malware in the list of malware. Huh? 

 

With none of the reports listing specifics like the number of people infected, what it did, or how it happened, reports like the recent one from F-Secure could just as likely be FUD as fact IMO

EDIT: Sorry for the distraction from discussing the upcoming S4. Discussion of Android malware probably belongs in a more appropriate thread.

I saw that, and appreciated it. Actually I had the same intention, trying to restore a little balance on a page where the comments almost unanimously praise iPhone's highlights and ignore the GS4's strong points.  I felt especially compelled to say something in response to the "iPhone is for pretty people with money who know a great phone when they see it, and GS4 is for the poor and unrefined masses" sentiment.

 

That said, I wouldn't trade my iPhone for anything. The software and UX put it in a class of its own. But I freely acknowledge that the GS4 has it beat in almost every hardware spec, and the nifty features it's touting will be a joy to use in their own respects.  Comments like "ugly, zero innovation, crappy UI" are emotion, not reality.

The article was on AI a few days ago, and you commented on it.

Jeeze you have poor memory, or is it a selected one ?

If someone tells me, you have a 78% chance of being hit by the train if you cross at the level crossing that is not controlled by warning lights and a barrier, versus 0.17% if you cross where it is encouraged to (due to warning/barrier etc.), I guess you would not only cross where its dangerous but poke your tongue to mock those who do the correct thing. Not only that, you will be blind folded, have cotton wool stuff in your ears, spun around and then pushed towards the crossing.

The pusher ensuring that your travel coincides with the train time table.

But in your warped mind, you are safe.

The article didn't claim Android devices had a 78% chance of being infected with malware so you've not offered a valid analogy. When you can come back with a source showing the actual rate of infection then we have something to discuss. X% of some undefined number doesn't tell you a thing about how prevalent malware is.

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

For those without the patience to wait for numbers from HFTS, here's some to put things in perspective. According to estimates based on a report from Lookout Security the percentage of US Android devices that will encounter some form of malware in 2013: Less than 1/2 of 1%.. In Japan even less than that. Russia on the other hand comes in at 35%.  Note that even includes relatively benign Adware.

Dude, you need learn to be more careful or schedule an appointment with your doctor.  Perhaps there is something wrong with your coordination or you suffer from a neural muscular skeletal degradation issue. You shouldn't be dropping your phone daily, unless you are a stunt acrobatic skateboarder trying to txt and grind at the same time.

So where did they pull the 78% from?
In what context was this discussed? I know, however you go and find out yourself.

By the way, the figure you're quoting should be 79%. No matter tho. Even if Android had 100% of all know malware variants it doesn't follow that a typical Android user would suffer from it, or that any significant percentage at all would come in contact with it. You just want to believe the FUD so badly that you're trying to read something into the article that it didn't say.

I couldn't disagree more.

So a slightly rounded back w/ no glass, camera and flash directly in the center and down half an inch- with an IR remote built into the power button, dual long speakers on the front of the phone and 2 non mechanical buttons instead of one mechanical one- all on 4.7" (or so) is the same? Interesting.

Outside of being built out of aluminum, I see absolutely no resemblance. But who am I to disagree? You might be a mobile phone design expert. 1wink.gif

As I mentioned weeks ago, I still don't think the US version will have the Octa-processor. Just like with the S3 I think there will be two versions, one for the US with a quad-core optimized for our LTE-bands and one for everywhere else, and perhaps with the 8-core Exynos 5 mentioned in the AI article.
