Samsung phones are actually water resistant. I've dropped my s3 in a puddle and quickly dried it off, took out the battery and turned it back on several hours later and it worked fine. but the iphone you drop it in a puddle for a fraction of a second and its done.

This is a great news. I just wanted to get an s4 but I will wait for this water proof version.(maybe with that flexible screen to)
Get it done faster people. S3 and now s4 are the best phones ever. Samsung is really innovating this phones.

I find it funny, it's like Samsung want to be the best at EVERY SINGLE small feature possible. You won't even be able to say that phone X is slightly better at *some feature* anymore, because there will be no selling points that Samsung will not have covered.

haha, water proof in a phone is the stupidest feature right now, as silly and useless as the features in the S4.

This is a phablet. It can not fit in your pocket.

> In reply to geordie81 @ 2013-04-24 17:45 from 3xqh - click to readI still call a 5 inch device a phone, and a 5+ inch device a phablet. This is going to change I think, because soon many companies will make 5 inches screen phones, and the number is going to rise from 5 inch to 5+ inch(so the standard will change).
Why I am saying that a 5 inch screen device is more a phone than a phablet to me? It's simple. A 5 inch screen device can fit much easily in your pocket, than a 5.5 inch screen device. It's also harder to use it with one hand.
Now about Tablets:Everybody are calling a 7 inch device a Tablet, and NOT a phablet.
