Bill, 25 Jun 2013Only the LTE Advanced is for South Korea, so your point is kinda... moreVery well said, Bill.

Quite frustrating on my part who just bought my S4(32GB Korean Version - octacore+LTE) 2 weeks ago cause I know someone who can buy me S4 from South Korea.

I should've kept my money and waited for the LTE-A version to come out :(

But no matter how much I hate it, I'm still in love with the phone..

I've owned S2,Note2 and S4. S4 is not as smooth as Note2 eventhough it comes with exynos octa 5. Note 2 has no problems at all but S4 flawed. That's why you can see there are a lot of S4 users complaining....

Limited, 25 Jun 2013Samsung's strategy: 1. Release a flagship phone (S4). 2. Wil... moreSamsung strategy is to copy, copy, copy, and brainwashing people. I cant even look at this phone for a couple of minutes, it makes me wanna throw up. Just the name itself sucks big time. Durability is really poor. Even in user rating this wont be a top natch.

I hope it can play hi10bit 720p and 1080p MKV videos flawlessly as NO ONE of the current top smartphones can give flawless playback. Some struggle and stutter and others just can't. (Using MX Player, which has the best support for softsubs)

Only the boring looking iPhone 5 and the pretty Motorola Razr i (Intel) can play flawlessly 720p.

This is lack of optimization or codec implementation neglected by CPU and smartphones makers which have several thousands if users unhappy. Specially the ones who like to watch Japanese animations and videos in this impressive hi quality.

Let's wait and see playback tests.

But actually I hope one day laptops, tablets and smartphones can be like PC, you can pick what you want for the hardware-software, then pick which manufacturer you'd like to make your phone... :-)
