[deleted post]Nitpicking by jealous users your right.
There is no lag at all.
They have the lag problem with tiles on WP, not us.

Before that, on older 2.2 only a handful of people with poor phone skills had what they thought was delayed response.When everyone else was not complaining.And using their phones correctly.
WP users , use this myth to say android is laggy
when its never been shown from 2.3 on wards.
Google even with super high speed RED cameras set to 120fps could not get jellybean to do a lag.
lag is a lie! and I will fight that lie saying android has lag.
Android is what professional handset users' choice.
Sales show android is the smoothest and most advanced smartphone option
Thephonegeek, 18 Jul 2013The s800 chip didn't really reflect on benchmarks. It'd probably shine in Linpack more than anywhere else.
There are too many S4 i just hope they dont forgetting on updating the past phone. I wont be surprise if samsung will made a midrange s4 with 2cores and i am not talking about s4mini :).

Bunyip22, 18 Jul 2013I agree, 16GB shouldn't even be an option in high end phones let alone the ONLY OPTION.
I w... moreThe problem is with the retailers buying the cheapest version of the phone only.. afraid no one buys and lower the profit margin.
So samsung have 2 ways to handle this:
Increase the base to 32/64/128 (SHOULD BE NORM in late 2013 and early 2014)
Spank the retailers, bypass them and provide the phone delivery service directly like apple.
Wazzi, 18 Jul 2013Just what I have been waiting for...Not. Still have my S2 not updating till Intel catches up w... moreHey bro, its a new phone not a new house - if youve been waiting for the KEY LIME PIE since SGS2, and you visit GSMARENA.. you are very patient!
So glad this is coming out.. Also so glad I didn't buy the SGS IV regular - this is awesome!!
Where is 64gb?, 18 Jul 2013Oh yeahhhh Keep them coming!

I will probably upgrade to a Note 3 when they come out but WILL NOT get it with 16GB! I will look at other brands if Samsung doesn't make 32GB and 64GB available straight up!
Oh yeahhhh Keep them coming!
Soon your download speed will be sooo fast that your 16gb crap cannot handle it!..
Pssssst Samsung: PUT A BIGGER STORAGE INSIDE THESE PLASTIC CRAPS.. 16gb is sooo 2009s..
I can see a lot of angry s4 customers! They should call it s4+! It was inevitable as all the competition would have tranced the s4 making it an underdog! Power of these chipsets are getting crazy but what the heck - it brings the price of perfectly usable previous flagships down! Xperia T still sells at £400 on one operator in uk but 2nd hand you can get an A grade for £190. Not bad for sony flagship from less than a year ago! You are fools for falling into the flagship trap because your phone wont be topdog for even 5mins!
CypherGate, 18 Jul 2013I like Samsung and there phones, but in all honesty... this is just getting ridiculous! How ma... moreThey will probably release more S4 variants they can think of and then combine all of their sales to get that 100 million sales milestone of S4. How shrewd!
Exynos 5 Octa and Snapdragon 600 must not be sufficient enough to hide the lag so they decided to release a variant with even more powerful processor.
