(S4 is 1/3.2", 5S is 1/3.0", Z1 is 1/2.3")

It may be just my imagination but perhaps Galaxy S5 will be smaller?

" the whole SoC is manufactured by Samsung on its(Exynos 5) 28nm High-K Metal Gate (HKMG) process.

I don't care about that Samsung. Sony has the perfect camera for smartphone with the QX 100. Am going to buy the QX 100 and use it with my S3. Sony QX 100 is better than all cameraphone!!!

Samsung is far more innovative than both HTC and Apple.

This 8MP sensor is a completely new technology that is totally different from HTC's gimmicky "4MP Ultra Pixels".

number of pix matter, if are processed right.
s4(and maybe n3) take great pictures, but then are times when u want to capture in low light/fast scene and in detail, 1020 in pureview wins, and z1 fast and in low light too.

call me blind but the "ISOCELL" photo looks worse than the regular one overall.

well, picture quality is not just about the number of MP's
a 20MP SLR is still better than the lumias
so that is enough proof already

Another cheap marketing made by samsung. Its the same when they said thier octa cores is hetter than the snapdragon s800. But its prove not. Shame on ssmsung. They j6st want to tied up peo9le to wait for thier next flagship phone by lies again. Sorry samsung. I stop huying your phone. It will be like htc marketing tuier ulterpixel. Just want to compete with nokia pureview technology. Im going back to nokia..
