[deleted post]Iphone 4S- designed for people with small hands who loves tiny screen.
Iphone 5- designed for people who thinks phone with scratches looks cool.
I would rather have a plastic phone that is loaded with features, superior specs, and functionality that stands above the rest rather than a nice looking phone caged in a restricted ecosystem, outdated specs, boring homescreens, and limited functionality.
Holy Macaroni! Octacore? 2 gb RAM? Technology is upgrading fast. 20 years from now mobile phones will have 1000 core cpu and 100 gigs of ram!
Jelly bean 4.2.2 is unlikely! The most i can expect from sammy is 4.2.1 at launch!
ollyb1, 18 Feb 2013well all these phones are getting the same software features as the s3 and note 2 so the only ... moreHow many times must i explain? Hardware first, software later. Car is before road. Train is before rail. There is no way to test a software if there is no hardware.
SAMSUNG Galaxy S family never made users disappointed about hardware as well the software, trust me. some iOS 'foolish' fanboy always say bad about, but that okay it up to your opinions.

And so what?
I LOVE PLASTIC!
Plastic body is MUCH BETTER than any metal body.
Thinner, better flexibility, no color scraping, etc!
Aluminium or other garbage metal body's is for stupid fancy nokia peoples!
Nokia is stupid, why?
ALL TIME LOOSE EVERYTHING, because people no longer up to the brand name and fancy look, but to the usability!
PEOPLE, GROW UP!
SAMSUNG IS THE KING LAST 3 YEARS!
All companies must learn from them....
And... one more thing...
WAR IS OVER, SAMSUNG IS WINNER!
8 core + 8 gpu = THE BEST!
Duel, 19 Feb 2013Are you forgetting something? Maybe like tablets?
And for me natural colours are always nat... morePhones aren't tablets LOOOOOOL what you compared were 2 phones.
And FYI, the reviewers of Galaxy Tab 7.7 with AMOLED loved the screen.
I like Samsung S3 very much and I trust the Samsung S4 quality will be better than previous ones. I will surely buy it once available in Jakarta. Welcome Samsung S4 !!!
Duel, 19 Feb 2013"They sold 96 million S3s"
S3s?!?!? Wait what? Sgs3 has sold around 40-50 million... moreIf Samsung address key criticisms of the S3 then they might well reach 100M.
- Better design (slimmer, thinner, lighter, more attractive)
- more premium finish
- best CPU performance (at time of launch) by a good margin
- best GPU performance (at time of luanch) by a good margin
- better camera (better doesn't necessarily mean bigger)
- RGB screen (I know at 1080p it can't be seen but need to match the competition)
- further refined software (software that runs faster/ more efficiently) with smaller memory footprint
If Sammy make SGS4 an unarguably true standout device and there's already strong cvompetition (whereas the SGS3 was mostly on par with One-X and Meizu performance) and considering SGS1 & 2 owners will be at the end of their 2 year contracts so in the market for another phone then 100M is well possible.
Unfortunately I don't think they'll give us a great design or RGB, but if they get the rest right it could be enough to get them pretty close.
Nothing wrong with plastic...women loves them and men can't get enough of!
Plastic rules! Even the sturdiest iPhones were the ones used plastic cases - the pre-iPhone 4 ones (MacBooks too!). And iPhone owners today buy plastic protection for the screen and back of their iPhones. I'd bet iPhones will be made of plastic in the future - but they'll call it something fancy just to save face. Haha
joonius, 19 Feb 2013Yes, color accuracy on 4 inch screen makes so much difference because everyone is a profession... moreAre you forgetting something? Maybe like tablets?
And for me natural colours are always natural colours no matter what the screen size is.
joonius, 19 Feb 2013They sold 96 million S3s. 100 million S4 is totally doable."They sold 96 million S3s"
S3s?!?!? Wait what? Sgs3 has sold around 40-50 million, not 96 million.
And no samsung is never going to sell 100 million S4, its good if they can get half of that.
4.99" screen is okay, but I'm really hoping the Samsung decides to one up all the 5" phones that are being released right now and go straight into a 5.2" screen. Now that the Note 2 is 5.5" with the Note 3 most likely being bigger, Samsung does not need to worry about the Galaxy S screen sizes encroaching on the Notes.
