the only enemy of samsung now is itself. s4 s800 will beat s4 s600. the competition now is within samsung.

Even in UK LTE is not faster than Three networks HSPA+ and still in infancy..When they get to 98% coverage is years off even with other networks so here in UK cant see peeps worrying.

And if you honestly believe Samsung is the only company that did anything you don't like you are crazy. All companies are far from perfect and most others do much worse things.

Even then it's a lot more than just a bigger screen and battery. It could've been more, but so could have everything else that is no the whole package it is. IE everything else.

While at the same time by having true blacks, superior contrast, and a better white balance it is over all more accurate.

And yes LCD is brighter, but there is not much where that comes to advantage. The contrast, colors and less reflection of Amoled help make up the difference of that. LCD scores just tad better in the sun by being brighter not less reflective.

You could stop denying anything people are saying.. Just saying.

I don't defend or agree anyone, but trying to keep my head above all of this.

Doesn't really matter since you are not going to see LTE advanced in north america for the next few years.

I remember how HTC bragging about the OLED screen, which samsung made for the desire. HTC no longer got access to OLED and switched to LCD

I was already aware that HTC and Apple pay people to troll the internet. HTC has been very successful at disparaging Samsung. They are a very dirty company HTC is.

Does increase in screen size, increase in battery capacity and increase in number of cores mean innovation? really? that has been case with S series so far, Galaxy S with single core 4 inch screen, S2 with Dual core 4.3 inch screen, S3 with quad core 4.8 inch screen, Now S4 5 inch with 8 cores, besides that at least first 3 S series phones had some visible design changes but S4 even lacks that. So S4 is flop, an utter flop!!!

Still the best smartphone ever on the planet is the one that suites your needs and is within your budget..If folk are spending all their money just to keep up or have the best smartphone they are only fooling themselves no-one else ...If you are loaded then do what you want but a lot of the world cant..Its the same with colours,say you would love a red S4 but the 2 released are lauch are black and white,,,you buy these as the only options available then you get pissed off later on when Samsung bring out the colour you want.
