i really don't see the point of wireless charging. what's the difference between putting your phone on a dock and connecting a cable. i think it's an excuse to charge more money

I think wireless charging should be made available to all S4, like it is found in Nokia lumia 920.

Initially I was sceptical about the design of the s4 like everyone else but some how the phone has warmed up to me.

That infrared is one of the main reasons I'm going to get this phone along with the beautiful screen (441 ppi is no joke)

Though the rest of the features might seem like copy cat, I look at it as extra bonus (not even Santa will give you infrared, the so called s-hover, wireless charging, a 2600 mah battery, the latest jellybean and 8 cores IN ONE PACKAGE).

If only they had changed the design this would have been overkill

So after this release, it is clear that the S4 brings nothing new and the Lumia 920 still remains the most innovative phone to date. Nice job doing nothing, Samsung!

Most of the accessories can be used by Samsung’s S-Health 2.0 application.
