The Galaxy Note 3 is bound to be Samsung’s (and possibly Android’s in general) cream of the crop for the next six to eight months, until the Galaxy S5 will become official, but not everyone digs ginormous 5.7-inch handhelds.
In which case you can either go for the five month-old 5-inch Galaxy S4, or… its younger and somewhat undervalued GS4 LTE-A “cousin”, powered by a zippier quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.
The issue with that particular fellow is it’s only available in South Korea for the time being, with all hints pointing at it remaining exclusive to Samsung’s homeland. For all eternity. All hints thus far, that is, because apparently Deutsche Telekom, Germany’s leading telecommunication service provider, has earlier today confirmed it’ll be carrying the S4 LTE-A in the near future.
How near? No idea, but the bigger point is, if Telekom brings the S800-based 5-incher on the old continent, there’s no reason for other carriers in states like France, Italy, UK and so on to not do the same. In fact, you can bet your asses they will.
After all, though LG has the G2 and Sony the Xperia Z1, which on paper look better than the LTE-Advanced-enabled Sammy device, we are talking about Samsung here. You know, the number one global seller of smartphones and everybody’s go-to Android OEM. I rest my case.
