I don't really like Note 2 stylus. Hence, I went back to S3. So, definitely not buying S4

In addition to my below long message if I were Samsung, I would release as much varied products as possible and watch outside and see everybody else including iPhone drop down one by one. Here comes the killer list:
NoteIII: 6" + Spen
NoteIII mini: 5"-5,5" + Spen
SIV: 4.8"-5"
SIV mini:4.5"

NoteII already sells well (SIII sells already with the biggest numbers in Smartphone history).
If SIV comes with SPen, nobody buys NoteII before its lifecycle ends (it came to market on end of September 2012). 7 months after its release it will be died with its own brother. Maybe we will learn to live with 6 months product cycle after 2013. Who pays a premium to change the phone in each 6 months? Contracts are for 24 months. Just imagine there will be 3 more products from the same line until your contract ends.
Spen is a cost itself and I am not sure if everybody will move to 5" + Spen(moving down from NoteII to 5" GSM is not a big deal if those specs would become true). In order to market 2 products, they have to be different enough. SIV with 5" 1080p screen + Spen = Dead Note series.
In order to make Note live, what Samsung will put inside a NoteIII? 6" screen (that is 44% more area when compared to 5" which is too much). My carpal tunnel already aches 2.5 months after NoteII (I am 1.89m height and I have huge hands). I can't use it with single handed comfortably (basketball players may use it single handed but how many of them exists outside). In short words, 5" for SIV is too much for the average Joe. I remember many of my friends who couldn't shifted to SIII due to its big size.

Heh, wait for HTC to release a phone with tegra 4 using 28nm A15 cores... It would be a killer

Awesome!!5 inch sounds good,as long its narrow like the HTC butterfly so u can fit it more comfortably in ur skinny jeans and for the s-pen I like it too,i think it adds more to the experience.for those of you who think its the "mini note" or what ever....who cares what it is called...The only deal breaker for me would b 1.no SD card slot 2.non removable battery.i wouldn't mind if they Changed the silly plastic cover but i dout it
. but the biggest mistake Samsung would make is would be pricing the s4 around the note 2.

Maybe Galaxy S4 has a pretty description out here and it could be one of the most powerful smartphones of 2013, but still not the best. It will have to face the HTC release and many others. Even if Samsung had the best year on it's sales, they didn't released the best smartphone of this year's market. We will see... I have faith in companies that surprise the area of their expertise.
