8-cores ping-pong plastic brick with a lame, underpowered battery, late updates and proverbial android lag (because android still has lag, no matter what hardware). Skip
for this to sell 100 million, it cant have a 5 inch screen, its too big. the absolute limit with smartphones is already reached with 4,8 inch displays. 5 inch plus is just not practical in everyday use.
It's funny that everyone is complaining about the octa core when it's still a RUMOR. I am a samsung galaxy note 2 owner and it works just fine with quad core. With that being said new benchmarks were just released and it looks like this phone will have a quad core 1.9 GHZ processor not octa. And everyone saying that dual core is enough and is just fine the way it is as long as there is a good os (I'm assuming apple fans) need a wake up call considering the quad core a7 due to be put in iphone 5s this year. BTW if you don't believe me go to www.bgr.com and look it up yourself.
SAMMY die hard please calm down...
DOnt be "tourettes syndrome" when your guy heard
this "PLASTIC" word......
ha ha ha haaaa
Whats with the praise of the Samsung display the Galaxy Note was rubbish (well documented "black crush" issues that were never addressed the Note 2 was deliberately lower res to avoid the same problem. Sammy aren't giving you great phones just conning you and there seems to be a large number of suckers out there with more money than sense. So once you buy the S4 will you cry when the S5 is out at Xmas or will you still have more money than sense and the buy that just before you buy the S6 this time in 2014?
Anonymous, 19 Feb 2013why would anyone get sony z... yeah cause i dip mine in sand and water all the time... lame. ... moreEver used your phone whilst its raining? Or how about when someone calls you and your washing your hands or just got out the shower? How's about if your skiing or on the beach? Or on holiday by the pool? I'm guessing not as you don't have the Xperia Z. Think outside the box dear friend.....

why would anyone get sony z... yeah cause i dip mine in sand and water all the time... lame. Samsung is King, all other android software is boring. only sammy has the awesome practical software features
No physical home botton? no water proof, plastic! Looks like S3. Nothing new just more chips in it.

I'm sure this will be a good high spec phone but for this year it's all about Sony Xperia Z. The Z has a beautiful design, high spec but above all it has the best eco system to support it. There's something just classy about Sony which I can't pin point. To top it all its water proof so you can use in the rain..... And here in Britain that's a pretty handy thing! (how often do see people trying to use a phone when it's raining but also trying to keep it dry..... All the time on my commute in London!)
All those little kids crying over plastic. Truth is, the SGSIV is gonna own big time just like its predecessors no matter what its made off. It's join the ranks of Xperia Z and whatever monster LG still has in store for this year. HTC is dying because they keep producing hardware limited phones with low unexpandable memory and tiny non removable batteries and Nokia fanboys should keep their mouths shut entirely because nobody wants to buy an overpriced Fisherprice brick.

It's funny how these reviews doesn't mention anything about the infinite contrast which produce infinite blacks. Just watch a video on youtube comparing displatys, SAMOLED performs better than any LCD technology, LCD takes the edge when showing a full white screen.

The iPhone hews significantly closer to the standard gamut used to produce most of the photos, videos, and other consumer content you'll view onscreen. That means it produces highly accurate colors. The Galaxy S3, on the other hand, has a gamut far beyond the standard, which oversaturates colors."
