Bunyip22, 06 Mar 2013weren't you the person who said smart stay was a gimmick also... if you would actually try it ... moreSmart stay is designed by samsung for broken applications..
If a application is designed properly, it should keep the screen on when reading.. and not shut off.
This only mean android have bad application to need such a lousy implementation and waste of battery and camera usage.
As for this eyeball scrolling thingy .. no comment yet.. till try.. but now please go exercise your eyeballs first then give review.

Will this one have the bug that allows you to bypass the lockscreen as well? Or maybe it'll have a new sudden death feature. Lol.

S-Voice? It's a gimmick, and it doesn't work well. It is known.
Honestly is a joke...for how long it takes to do things and for how often it fails it ends up being a waste of time. I recommend rooting, flashing a jelly bean ROM with Google now.
I rebooted the phone several times - didn't fix the problem. I went through all my settings, but couldn't find anything that looked wrong, so I eventually did a full factory reset which also did not help the problem. it was all very slow and rather clumsy and look how it is now.
The only time voice will ever come in handy for me is when i am driving... Other then that it's just another toy lol.
Difference between the two is that the Sammy is glossy, making it look very cheap. Another thing that makes it look cheap is the stupid chromed plastic casing. They should have made it metal like the DESIRE HD
The hype had everyone's expectations to high so the end result let people down.
Nobody wants Samsung to step up from plastic! They introduce some foolish gimmicks to excite people! Eye scrolling???? Crap!
Samsung should simplify the name of Galaxy S 4 to Galaxy 4
The "S" is really redundant.
some people will think "ASS"
I agree, polycarbonate (thermoplastic polymer) is liltle durable, but literally it is not really expensive. For example Nokia Lumia 900 (same as HTC One X+) has the same polycarbonate body, but it doesn't look "cheap".
Disappointing but in my opinion "Hyper Glazed” polycarbonate on Samsung Galaxy phone looks really "cheap"
