nothing new... same design , just change dimension , upgrade spec... same old same old... put more useless feature that can show off to everybody ,

yeah.. ur spec is far beyond every phone.. but what u can do with those? are the game need higher spec ? is there any apps only this phone can support ?no... still old spec iphone 4 can play latest game.. its single core right ??

u need high spec cause ur os need it, not the apps . but is ur os support it , did it optimize ? to many useless feature that need high spec.. for what? did u used all the feature?

i heard fanboy say everything will change when S4 launching ... so what u got?

thats what it call "NEXT BIG THING" .. cause everything just become BIG !!

yeah...let see how many people will bash me and say "apple fanboy" !

Before the next judgement being passed down to the SIV, I believe one should wait for the thorough review from Gsmarena. Except of course those who pass judgements by it's looks alone. I myself is eagerly looking forward to how the dual-quad core processor work. How much improvement does it bring in terms of battery life (which if I'm not mistaken, should be a lot) and of course, of how much power it really possess. And though I'm also not a big fan of the design, which by the way looks more similar to the Note II design rather than the S III, what I'm impressed at is the fact that it has a slimmer waistline than the HTC One, the same height and also thinner and lighter than the One inspite of having a bigger display (the One have only 4.7" of screen estate) and also a larger battery. Pretty impressive, don't you think? Well, I guess now I'm gonna get back to the waiting game, then. Hopefully, Gsmarena could manage to get a review unit sooner rather than later.

lets face it haters gonna hate this phone, mostly apple fans,me as an sgs3 owner was slightly underwhelmed by the phone from a design point of view, however just because it looks like the s3, it will not behave like it, yes the changes are subtle in the body itself, but i for one am pleased with it, screen increase and now full HD, ppi is now 441 instead of 326 (I don't really count this as a feature to much), processors have seen a significant boost, battery, better camera with a slightly better f2.2, slimmer design, lighter then s3 even tho its bigger, and all the features built in the phone, while i don't say they are innovative, they are just handy little things, some are not so much, this is more of a step up in my view, but maybe not such a step as i had hoped.
i would still have liked samsung to drop 16gb version and sell 32&64GB, i know there is micro sd and usb but its 2013 and internal storage is cheap as chips now for phones, with all the bloatware and apps im sure that 16GB will probably be more like 10GB ish, 2-3 high end games and i am temporarily full

The S4 is a beast, this will sell more than the S3, count on it, and the S3 sold over 50 million units.

> In reply to iphonefan @ 2013-03-15 01:37 from pYxI - click to readi agree with you... samsung has now changed the meaning of innovation to "adding cores", "increasing screen size", or putting more pixels in a camera.

.. sony and HTC, and nokia are more on the game when it comes to taking bigger steps forward... (even i'll admit that and i hate HTC).

... we'll see the true side of samsung when they stop suckering off of android and google and work thier own TIZEN OS.

Every others manufacture did much better than Samsung.

Samsung was too lazy and save cost, and thinking for stealing money from consumer against this nothing impressive 90% alike S III product.

Sorry Samsung... bad move and you already start following Apple without innovation and you never listening to consumer as you said in the unpacked presentation.

For those of the (cr)apple fans who say that the S IV has nothing new, Please have a look at the past and see was there much difference in SHITphone 5, 4s and 4? Not much other than siri.! And what did you get in the iPhone 5, a half an inch more for risen price. Please don't show your hypocrisy here.! Samsung has given much more in the S IV, like the 13 mega pixel camera, 2 mega pixel front facing camera, 1.9 gHz QUAD CORE processor, the new air gesture feature and many more which is difficult to be listed.! You people say that Samsung copied from apple.? Did you people see that pen which was made for galaxy note only! And you bark that Samsung copied! Please people, get the information before you speak out.. And I still say that S IV will rock the market much more nicely than your iPhone and the Galaxy S III!
