I like the Samsung smartphones simply because they have a removable battery while many of opposition DON'T.

Always have to mash the back button? That is NOT a Samsung issue it's an android issue. Blame google

People are eager about s4 and it must have s pen because this option only samsung has this is really good decision if it has s pen within 5 inch display
people are not interested in bigger screens more than 5 inch

The Specs are out and unfortunately the SIV is coming with only 1.9 quad core processor and not Eynos 5 Octa Processor... So its the only disappointment. Octa core processor might be used in Note 3.

I kinda like the button arrangement of the software button. (back / home / recent apps) -

It allows better multi-tasking/app control.

The one provided by samsung is a pain .. always have to mash the back button..

i only use physical button on iphone 3g & 4 only for jailbreaking (redsnow etc), since absinthe only click on screen, i wish i can remove iphone physical button. every time i want close apps, i use sbsetting and assistive touch (on screen home button)..
i don't have any problem using n9 too.
but is't good idea to maintain physical button.

USE it for god's sake. don't lick it. build quality my as*!
