In my experiences, the S3 blew away the I5 in terms of overall video, and the sound was a wash... S3 has too many features to give up for the same 'ol boring I5 anyways. Colors on the HD LED are perfect in HD movies... I wonder how SoLux will compare the I5 and S3... It sounds pretty good.

Specks sound great! But the size is ridiculous! I have a Galaxy S1 and I can now say it's a slug!
I was really looking forward to the S4, but I do not want a mini tablet for a phone! Samsung what the hell are you doing? I need a great phone that fits into the top pocket of my work shirt, not a 5 inch rock! Very, very disappointed! I think I'll wait for the I-phone 6 and get that and that says a lot because I was never an I-phone fan.

I loved my S3 - just couldnt tolerate a sub-standard viewing experience. And audio come to mention it - iPhone 5 pisses all over my old S3 audiowise too. Thats a fact.

S3 only became a match when i rooted it and used DSP manager, even then it didnt quite match my 5.

I owned both devices pal, i know what i'm on about. not trolling for either of them.

So Samsung finally admits that it's own AMOLED screen and Exynos chip sucks?

Samsung was caught in a big surprise. The reason they keep the s4 a secret, so that they can revise it. Now it seems s4 is different than what is supposed to be. Moto x-phone spandragon 800 preview will come out next month, s4 will again become 16-core, solSucks screen, with 4gig ram, and I'm hoping won't change their trade mark in using plastic. Bravo for being sneaky.

LCD sucks. Amoled was one of the reasons I didn't give a frack about other brands.

Look on the internet,and search details and pictures regarding the SoLux display. It is outstanding ... Samsung Galaxy all the way!!! SAMSUNG will dominate the smarthphone market again,and it will have a better succes than the S3.

They should wait till they get some superamoled displays and get the Exynos working.Really cannot see Samsung lowering themselves to LCD,LCD 2 OR LCD version 5 displays.

It will be a very stupid move by Samsung to put that cheap chip "Qualcomm"!
We want Exynos!

Qualcomm and SoLux? Well, time to return to HTC, Sony and Motorola.

If this rumor proves to be true it is not a nice move by Sammy... They've just gave, for free, all the galaxy S line market share to the other Android players, Apple and Micro$oft.

All that hype about a full HD Amoled and the vaporware Exynos bla-bla-bla Octa and they'd end up with just another Qualcomm with a LCD screen? And late? Do the fluoride spill affected the engineers and marketing people as well?

It's better to be just a rumor or Samsung is just comminting suicide.
By the way, Nokia, Apple and HTC sends it's regards.

The only reason I stayed with Samsung so far was the AMOLED screens. That's the only thing which made them the best IMO. If they go back to LCD, I'll gladly switch to Sony/HTC.
