All those gimmicks are nice but I don't really need them. I thought I would love multiview but after I got it in 4.1.2 for my S3, I found I don't really use it after all.
Having said that, I always welcome more improvement to its already excellent camera. The low light shot really works although its limit still shows. It's merely a software manipulation after all.
The absolutely new feature I wish I can (but I can't) get for my S3 is the sensitive screen which allow usage with gloves. I don't usually wear gloves in hot and humid Malaysia but ever since Lumia 920, I always see a return of stylus for every mobile phone. All we need is an out-of-ink ballpoint pen.

Not only is it lightweight but it also brings down the cost, speed up the production, has less signal interference etc.
In fact, the most recurring pointless comment I've read in GSMArena is probably the "plastic - epic fail" comment.
Those plastic haters never give any good argument. They just hate plastic.
My top choice is still polycarbonate but I have nothing against plastic at all.
And I still love my S3.

Oh wow great job samsung, so I'll get all gs4 features in my gs3, good gob samsung, what happen to htc fans, it seems they are becoming more jalousie because htc don't do that to there devices, and each phone has just own update, I was an htc user and it was my first htc phone and it was the last one and I decided to not buy htc anymore because what I see from samsung do everytging what I want, and htcs platform (sens) is worst than touchwize, it's so so so so heavy for phones, and the problem with htc they don't give there phone the maximum performance like samsung and apple, ok I believe that touchwize is also heavy but samsung go there best to put the most powerful processor and ram to not have problem on there phones and to not shutdown when the ram become full, samsung is doing something great, no phone toll now give the maximum power to there phone, and I saw always samsung do there stuff, ok I copied some of apple stuff but now they are doing all for there own imagination and stuff, and samsung never copied htc, htc never have samsung feature, well htc should concentrate more on there performance and there battery which is always the worst thing ever, and they should think how to do a good phone with a good performance to have the possibility to updated them for every new android version, and I hop all of you remember what happened with htc desire people when htc say that they can't update it, so plz don't talk about samsung, because they know what are they do, and samsung that you name it plastic has a better performance than a metal that can't will lag soon and his battery will be expired, Samsung do there stuff bicarbonate, btw we can change our battery, so just this one can beat htc, so stop talking about a company that they challenge all other companies and they are winning every time when they do something, and I seems that all companies are coping samsung with there features, well we will see how samsung will be the leader of everything, and you will see apple and htc user jow samsung will be the leader

That's the number one reason why I like Samsung. The update for their flagship and past flagship.

Diferent camera with new software and HDR. Wireless charging (that for me means nothing but is a difference). And so on and on...It may appear like S3 but is not, and don't forget the tons of new features and official acessories.

Now, tell me the BIG differences between 4 and 4S?! could right away register the phone when you bought it without going to iTunes, different processor power, camera and a line above volume rocker?! Did I forget something? Man, it's ridiculous, even the battery id the same!

But hey, see it for yourself...go on the top of the page and click compare. Compare 4 to 4S and then compare S3 to S4. See differences and don't be blinded by hate ;)

Expecting a third one with S4 goodies ahahaha is that hate for nor having a SGS3 or the one you have doens't do the same? Of course they will delay the update but not for as long as you made appear. S4 comes out end of April and S3 might get it in 2-3monts period wich is not so bad at all, sorry. The same happened with goodies of Note II to S3 ;)

In fact HTC copied samsung. Check out P7320 - the Galaxy Tab2 8.9 - its camera had this feature, but it was called action shot. And that was WAAAAY before htc one.

All the others are Samsung's brand new ones, actually never thought of before. That's way ahead of everyone else.

Does the Samsung Galaxy S4 software goodies will also hit the Galaxy Note 1 (GT-N7000)?

I really hope so.
