Greaver: I will try and dig up the review that made comment of it - but they said it was a point in regards to being careful with it
no need, heaps of reviews saying it is faux metal, but on the flip side there are also reviews saying it is metal. Maybe one of those teardown videos shows what it is

It's plastic, and I have that from a Samsung NZ manager.

Lack of fm radio was a surprise and a disappointment.

Lord Samsung giveth and taketh away. The FM on my S2 is something I find very handy. I guess they figure that most people have data most of the time and can use TuneIn etc. The HTC One has FM and that is one of the factors leading me that way choosing between S4 and One to replace my S2 shortly. Especially with the high-quality front-facing stereo speakers :)

Always stuns me the number of people who find an FM radio a differentiating factor in handset decisions. I don't pretend to understand myself, but I always respect that others use-case scenarios differ. Interesting that Samsung haven't got it, considering their typical 'brute force' include all features tendencies.

Funny enough. I never use the radio. but this year, when i was in fiji during a cyclone...the radio came very handy when the power went out for 2 nights..

That's good. I'd quite like to hear some positive feedback on the phone, heh. Everything I seem to be seeing about it today is negative, although relatively minor, it's not nice to read after dropping a lot of money on it in the intention of it being a long term investment.

If the S4 has 4G Does it show somewhere it's 4G? Secondly, can I get rid of the Telecom Logo? Lastly the 64GB SD Card I pulled from my S3, is getting rejected by the S4. Says it was unexpectedly removed...

I'm absolutely loving mine!  The upgrade from my S2 was so, so worth it.

Fast, lovely and I'm impressed with the new version of OS.

I'm also finding the view cover super handy!

I am really loving it too, but I knew I would and I've had Galaxies Since .1 and a few Sammys like the Pixon before that which I loved.
