Nokia/WP again? Lumia Lumia Lumia... almost every thread on GSMArena there is someone finding a way to inject Nokia/WP into the comments/reviews. I'm beginning to suspect it's a paid effort by Nokia or Microsoft.

They forgot to compare Galaxy S4' screen to the Lumia 920's. Lumia 920' screen pretty much beat iPhone 5's in every category you can think of.

"Then comes the brightness it turns out that if you leave the phone in automatic brightness mode, the screen can go as much as 34% brighter compared to the maximum of manual mode. Thats 68% brighter than the maximum of the Galaxy S III (the Galaxy S4 in manual is 25% brighter than its predecessor)."
And after that comes mathematics - 34% (higher than on manual mode) + 25% (higher on manual then S3) = 68% !!! :-D No wonder that S4 beats them all... on paper.

Am happy with my s3. The only thing that would make me upgrade from sgs3 to 4 is the 2GB RAM

Pretty excited what the S4 is ushering for the Note 3.
