i bet samsung will sell this first in all market before htc butterfly and sony yuga. after all, this phone was made specifically to battle these two units. next time, don't make any advance announcement when you plan to release new model/unit. samsung and iphone doesn't do that for fear of copycat like samsung.

They need to sort this s**t out !
I want a high-end smartphone, but with a life-time of at least 2 days, is that impossible ?

samsung just reminds me of my dad. He used to do the same thing to me when i was young . He used to offer me cheap chocolates . i rejected them every time disappointed wanting for more and started hating him for not knowing what i want until one day he suprises me with a dairy milk and i start loving him again . He actually knows what i want in the first place but baits me and in the end suprises me . What a strategy .

Why do people even buy phones this big? I mean, do they come with an extra person to carry it around for you?

I like a nice quad core Exynos/Snapdragon as much as the next guy, but I really think that the current flagship dimensions are getting a bit out of hand :/

it was just a suggestion if Sammy want to be on top again in the nex Game.

In SGS4, it should be a 7MM thin and non-removable with 3000-4000mah Battery backed-up by Wireless charging feauture with superless bezle.

It would be pointless if they'll make a 5" phone with a thick 8-9mm. Even HTC and Oppo batteries are non-removable.

It should have a 160GB or 128GB internal Memory.

These will be the selling point.

shitty screen resolution for 5" phone.. lowest PPI since era of modern smartphones. HTC is embarrassed to create 5" 720p phone and samsung releasing this one at WVGA! what a real shame..

How many permutations of these phones will be released? This is just basically a Samsung Galaxy S II in a Samsung Galaxy S III body.

Sammy you are losing your touch. While others are pushing the 5" 1080p screens you give us another "so, So" phone. Add a 1080p screen with an S/Pen / keyboard combo and you will get the fans excited again.

a 5" display seems pointless when the resolution is only WVGA...

Well wacko, that would cost over 800 USD. That specs will never happen. Because, that specs are total flawless and if that happen, ppl will buy s4 only, none of the other products of samsung!

Samsung is making every phone with same specification, it would be finally time to include 12 Mp camera,HDMI port,and HD display.
