During our coverage of the Samsung Galaxy S4 in New York last week, we brought with us a number of Android smartphones so we can do a side by side comparison. We had the Optimus G, the Galaxy S3, the HTC Butterfly, Xperia Z and the BlackBerry Z10.
The one above is the photo of the Galaxy S4 flanked by the Optimus G on the left and the Xperia Z on the right. The Galaxy S4 is as thin as the Xperia Z at 7.9mm. However, the camera on the S4 is protruding, making it thicker than the Xperia Z in that section.
The Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy S3, side by side. The Galaxy S3 is more rounded at the corners, the Galaxy S4 has a thinner frame and thinner bezel to accommodate the extra 0.19-inch display. Both have almost same body length and width.
The LG Optimus G is at the background with the Galaxy S4 at the foreground.That strip of silver lining around the edges is common to both.
The Galaxy S4 beside the Xperia Z. The Z looks much taller while the S4 looks more compact with both having the same 5-inch screens.
