Why doesn’t Samsung Galaxy S4 have a FM receiver?

Well, if you are a SG S4 user or intend to buy one, one question that might come to your mind is why it doesn’t come with a FM receiver (FM radio). No, it does not involve any technical issue. The reason is clarified by Samsung officials in response to question from Hi-Tech.Mail.Ru. Read on for more.
"Our studies show a trend shift of interest to digital broadcasting, specifically – focus on listening to music content in social networks or on the channel YouTube. The flagship model of our products are focused on customers who use digital content, which use modern formats and channels of information consumption."

The above statement is translated from Russian.We however felt that the reason is not justified. Even in the era of digital music, FM radio has still not lost its value. Very often, we turn on the radio to listen some live and random music. Many of us also listen just to gather our city’s local information.

We hope Samsung does something about this in its next flagship device.
