you cant blame samsung for taking advantage of consumers if u dont have the mind to look around for whats best then ur at fault
I hope Samsung ( wise-up ) on some security issues regarding some or all of there smartphones and deal with it promtly.
i dont want to use my phone under water but water protection is a must at this point also drop proofing and more cores dont mean faster it means more power management which is needed on galaxy but what about wireless charging sammy if these dont change the galaxy 4 will not sell as much as s3 i want them to change so i can sell my sony but the looks of it sony is gona hold me down for a while

whether or not you watch your phone screen directly or not... Horrible viewing angles are a downgrade in screen tech.
in-regards of OIS and F# and other camera capabilities, lets just wait and see what samsung does. then if they F'd that up, you can bash them all you like.

U don't deserve a smart phone... and since u might be very clumsy and drop ur phone alot, then go buy a phone cover...
Also waterproof is a good feature but its more of a want than need, and people will most likely just use it to show off to friends "hey look guys im washing my phone"... and how many times do u go swimming or beach? And r u planning to swimm with ur phone or play angry birds while swimming? LoL
It's a mighty impressive spec sheet for the Samsung Galaxy S4, and I couldn't care less whether its plastic or not.

But it is plain as day the reason samsung sells so many its because of their software advances. (i would not say battery life, because we cant see battery usage on tv commercials. Samsung marketing is very strong.
To compete with the galaxy series, the Android OEMs should have focus more on their software iterations, because it is not secret that they do beat samsung inregards of design. HTC has notice this, and started paying attention to software as seen in the HTC One.

How about OIS, lower F # (better low light capability), Stereo Speakers and a bigger Battery.
AMOLED, eh, give us something like Sony's Bravia !
The most innovating phone ever made. There are zillions features that unmatched by any other phones....this will put the boring iPhone to shame.
No doubt this is going to be a beast on paper. Perhaps the best specs yet.
The biggest (maybe only) challenge for Samsung is design. If it's that same bland plastic phone, then they probably won't win anymore fans. If it's a quality product made of metal, then they will hit it out of the park, home run. All at the expense of another droid manufacturer...
i am a heavy user of mble so if s4 doesnt hav the batery power like moto razr maxx than u cn r.I.p frm my side samy :)

Are you married to your phone? Do you even have real friends? Do you go to these places everyday? Water proof is a nice feature but im not married to my phone so I can live without this, id prefer better features, better screen, better sound quality better developer support better functionality and im sorry but Sony is still behind this department.
Zao, 04 Mar 2013Octa core only? Bad, i want a sixteen core phone.It is 4 Cores at a time, chosen from 8 total.

But waterproofing alone dont sell phones,.. and neither will 4+4.
a phone is sold, but its overall functional and user experience. and samsung is currently on top in that regard
I too want the HTC ONE, I will never buy a plactic phone again... I love the aluminum and the dual front speakers of THE ONE.
Can you dip it in water like Xperia Z? 4+4 cores is not innovation, but waterproofing is.I want to bring my fone everywhere I want. Ill leave Sammy in the house because of its fragile plastic case.
