There's virtually no reason to upgrade to the SGS4 if you're already a SGS3. Those octa-core and 1080p display will hardly make a huge noticeable difference.

They questioned what was the point of the phone its the same as the 4s, slammed it death. Now Samsung is doing the same thing. Personally I think this is a great idea from samsung to have s3 have the s4 features, that being said, like the s3, this phone will be an epic fail again, with the build quality, battery drain, and lag. It will suffer the same result.

It also depends on when your contract is up. Some have only recently gotten the S3, so they will benefit from the updates, whereas those of us nearly out of contract, will be able to have a brand new, top-of-the-line phone. It's called a win-win situation.

"Samsung Galaxy S4 software goodies to hit Galaxy S III as well" - yeah right, same way they talled JB to roll out to S2. S3 holders may wait next year if they are lucky enough.
