Unfortunately, android programming really is far behind ios and wp8, I use both galaxy s2 JB and iphone 4, even with custom firmware, the s2 has faster transitions but the transition itself is not always smooth, sometimes it's jerky..

I really dont understand people nowadays. everyone talks about how big a screen is, how fast a processor runs, aluminum bodies etc etc but NO-ONE even mentions SAR. For those that dont know its the radiation levels that each phone admits to your body. By far Samsung has the lowest SAR levels in the market , making their phones not only great with hardware, but SAFE TOO! Apple has 5 times the SAR of the latest Samsung phones! How can you give yourself, your kid, your wife a phone with so much radiation i truely will never understand !

As if the S III wasn't the best smartphone of last year (awarded by various tech sites, not by me, mind you). But a perfect disaster it may be, to Sony, HTC, LG and especially, the notorious Apple, for they do not know what's coming. And you, my friend, just hold on to your seat. The storm is coming, tomorrow.

Does anyone here realize that the SGX554MP4 GPU is the same one used to power the 1536 x 2048 resolution screen of the ipad4? So I bet it won't break a sweat handling the 1080p screen of the S4, don't you think?? Coupled it with the all powerful Exynos5 octa, I think there will be NOTHING quite like it. NOTHING! Except of course the Note III a few months ahead from now which will not only equal it but exceed it.
