never ceases to amaze me on how people want to be the first too own something and can go feral to get it. Maybe an age thingy but happy to wait a while till the dust settles and also see what the prices do.

aimsy007: Vodafone have the S4 up for per order provided you are signing on to a $140 plan. Are there going to be outright sales at Voda stores on Saturday?

I'm worried this is going to be a repeat of the iPhone 4 launch where I existing customers exploded after being told they could not buy the phone outright and it was only available to new on contract customers. Needless to say it was not a pleasant experience in the Voda store that day and I am not exaggerating when I say things almost came to blows!

Any word from JR on this would be appreciated.


I don't speak for VF but I can tell you the only way you can get it through VF is through that plan until the phone is general release on Saturday. I have been told there will be no outright sales on Saturday.

Hey guys. Lucky enough to have a play with the S4 this morning. Here it is against my Note II. Personally, I don't think I'll get one. Too used to the Notes size. Video looks awesome on it though.

the angle will distort the relative sizes of the two phones ... can you post a pic looking straight down at both phones?

I am surprised there aren't more accessories for the S4 at release date? Anyone know if the cradle from the S3 fits the S4?

The transparent Status bar on the S4 is a nice touch.

So, will anywhere actually have this for outright sale come Saturday? Best place in Auckland to go?
