Why? because it is unhandy use the phone with 2 hands. It is incomprehensible for me (big palms, long fingers) why producers do manufacture bigger phones. I have got one 4,7screen and it seems to me little to big.

I might say that I find the S4 pretty ok...Not innovative but ok.
My opinion
Strongpoints:
+same plastic as previous Galaxy S devices(I still have S1 and even though it's pretty old now and i dropped it lots of times i can say it still looks great(had HTC and other and they broke of easily)
+Processor system(very efficient with quad core for performance and quad for energy saving)
+user friendly interface(the TouchWiz S1&S2 came with was awful and used a lot of resources..now it's just perfect)
+very popular so rom releases and community support will be at is peak(as with every Galaxy S phone)
+design(inspired by S3 which was inspired by S1..which is a gread design)
+camera..1080p with 60fps recording is just great
Weakpoints:
-Bashed because of "cheap plastic" ideea
-too thin
-most likely it will end software update service early...as S1 did and as S2 and S3 will soon follow(I run S1 with 4.2.2 and runs very smooth(better than 2.3.6 where they ended service for S1).
-Bashed by anti-samsung "hipsters"

Overall i can say they did a great job and now it's hard for me to decide between S4,Xperia Z & Padfone Infinity as they are equals.

i don't understand why Samsung made bigger phone again.....they already have a Note2(for who loves similar size).Who cares about tablet in the pocket....S2 was the right size,why they make phones growing and growing........?!?
