RE: Samsung Galaxy S4

Good way to kill off three months of Galaxy S3 pre-Christmas purchases.

RE: Samsung Galaxy S4

In an age where everything is going smaller, this is growing even bigger!  Shock

5 inches is just too big.

Apple was certainly at pains to make it clear it thinks 5in is too big.

(tongue in cheek)

Apple were also at pains to say that anything bigger than the original iphone screen was too big as it couldn't be used with just one hand, and also that anything smaller than 10" on a tab was too small.  Now look what's happened Wink

(tongue out of cheek)

 

In all seriousness though, I've used a galaxy note and they are much better for doing most things one does on a smartphone as the screen is just that little bit bigger in order to make it more comfortable for reading websites, but it's then in to the size of not being comfortable for fitting in a pocket.  On the down side, it is very dom jolly when trying to make a phone call. but with bluetooth headsets and the like, shouldn't really be a problem.

 

it's tricky - won't somebody please make a screen we can change the size on??? Smile

RE: Samsung Galaxy S4

Looks like it'll be perfect for a spot of this - and now't much else.

Hideous, vulgar and irredeemably naff  talk to the hand

RE: Samsung Galaxy S4

Not as vulgar as owning a phone because it's the new model from the same (boring) brand.

 

After owning my One X (4.7") for a while, I actually want a bigger phone. I couldn't give a rat's chuff what anyone thinks. My One X fits easily into my pocket, and so would a Galaxy note.

We don't need to think like you then?

If that's true, then why do you keep trying to dissuade/mock/challenge other people's thoughts on their choice of phone?

Do I?

Ultimately there's nothing "wrong" with anyone's choice in phone. Most top end smartphones are very good. Some are better than others. 

The "rat's chuff" comment is to do with the rather snobbish "vulgar" remark.

 

To be honest, if all the big companies got together, stopped the patent bullying and agreed to share ideas, then I'd behappy. Then I would be happy to own any of the phones on the market.

I'd probably stay away from the "me too" type of phone like the iPhone and Samsung, but would consider them both. As it is we have one, very large company who are taking the proverbial and one or 2 others not far behind.
