Please don't do this Samsung. I was hanging out to buy this when it is released mainly because of the AMOLED display and the Exynos Octa processor. If this turns out to be true I will probably buy the Sony Xperia Z or HTC One

T think the the new exynos, either has subpar performance, either the heating problems weren't solved.
The exynos inside the galaxy s3 heats the phone up like hell, so probably the new exynos is unstable (heat wise).
sony's displays are better than samsung's it's not about the tipe of the screen as long as you get better viewing angles, sharp image etc. We can just wait and see if the galaxy s IV raises up to the challenge.

Samsung fans always degrade new phones. Now time for those people yo stike back. Samsung fans are the worst. Eat your Exymos 5, 8 core good as garbage poor innovation. Plastic. I love this game

Exynos octa is too powerful for that phone. That's why decided to go for subpar qc 600. It's like comparing an nuclear reactor against a household power generator. If a Samsung device couldn't handle it nobody can..... Bwahaha. You got the point righ.

Looks like spandragon 600 made Exymos5 bleed. 8-core hype is over. Spandragon 800 will definitely be a slap on the face of Sammy. Plastic is out.

How come sammy fan say plastic is durable best material for phone build...
The reason pure plastic was use just to safe production cost and gain profit from sale...
For 650 price phone and make from plastic is ridiculous from samsung....
Plastic is not value added to user in term look and long term built quality...
Unless they willing to reduce the price down $400
Samsung should now seriously look at this build issue...
