    eye motion control technology that will pause a video when the user looks away

    you mean like Samsung's Smart Stay feature (which is supposed to detect your face and keep the screen on) that doesn't work at all?

    A food critic loves food, a movie critic loves movies etc etc, why oh why would a technophile complain about "too" many choices? These articles are written by technological impaired people who are just so much better with a "dumb" phone. Lots of those "gimmicks", usable or not, are going to be implemented in future phones in an improved state wih an "i" in front of it or not, so instead of moaning about it, it should be applauded.

    actually no, a lot of tech blogs have called the GS4 "gimmicky" too and say that it's cluttered, especially thanks to Samsung's custom interface Touchwiz. there are plenty of phones out there without the mess (Nexus 4 which runs stock Android, making it simple, powerful and much more customizable, or the Sony Xperia Z with its minimally intrusive user interface). the overlay that Samsung uses with its dozens of useless apps doesn't make it more advanced, it actually limits how you customize your phone and makes it less useful. that's why diehard Android fans and bloggers are opting for other devices.

    quite a few of these sound like regular English to me (guard man, take out, coin laundry, etc).

    I wear masks often during cold/flu and allergy seasons, and sometimes, yes, even for cosmetic reasons (I forgot /don't want to put on makeup, I look like hell from a hangover, don't want to be gawked at for being foreign on the train, etc.) who cares?

    So Japan doesn't have dust?

    I've lived here for decades and experienced the Chinese yellow sand time and time again. this is the same thing.

    Well, no, no, not really: you could just check Wiki to find out that camera-phone tech actually came from the US first.

    You're right, I could check Wikipedia, but it says Canon was first.

    Not really. Camera in phone technology was actually developed and patented in the US. American users weren't interested, however, because the image quality was so low at the time, and instagram and other apps had yet to appear.

    No, not really. Serious camera-phone technology was first started by Canon, and then later by Sharp and Kyocera. And as other users stated, Japan's flip-phones were getting 3 to 5 times the megapixels in their phones as foreign brands.

    Actually, it was the Blackberry, which well preceded the iphone and was carried by Docomo. OK, it didn't bring everything crashing down, but it was the first popular smartphone.

    Blackberry actually was a massive failure in Japan and never caught on. How did it "bring everything crashing down" when it was a flop that no one bought and Blackberry doesn't even offer its phones in Japan anymore? Oops!

    Well, the handsets could easily be exported. The problem is that no one wanted Japanese handsets, apart from a niche collection of geeks.

    Except that at the time, Sony was one of the top cell phone makers and plenty of people wanted their handsets.

    Please do a little fact-checking before you post.

    Currency manipulation maybe?

    not even Japan's biggest critics have called this currency manipulation, so no.

    It is hugh time J Corporations fall in line with GENDER EQUITY policies - systemically - from equal pay to equal opportunity...............................Japan will continue to be considered living in the EDO period with regard to women 's issues , unless it addresses this significant HUMAN RIGHTS issue.

    you know that women's earnings in America are just 77% compared to males right? this is a global problem and America and the West need to change too.
