Samsung fanboys always believed they are "smarter" and "better" con... morePeople, especially those that care enough to comment on GSMArena and other sites alike, have very high expectations. That includes me. People are free to buy whatever they want, if they feel it meets their needs and the look of the device pleases them, by all means, go ahead and buy it.
I don't rush out anymore to buy the latest a greatest device on the market. Instead I look at what is new every 2 years. Hell, maybe even 3 years. If the manufacturers want to make incremental updates then I will make less purchases.
Most important, like I've said before, is to change the semiconductor manufacturing process from the current 28nm (Come on Qualcomm!)(I don't see them changing this until late 2015). I hope Intel's 22nm Atom mobile processor gets a proper foothold in the market this year with further developments in 2015.
Secondly, batteries. Removable or not, not a big issue. Capacity is the problem. We get more features with the release of every phone, yet the battery life, in the real world, gives you 1 to 1.5 days of use. Where is the nano technology they were talking about 10 years ago? Batteries that would last 20 times longer? We still sit with this Lithium stuff!
Screens, photo's, videos, speakers, and the rest, all good enough for now, so please manufactures, stop wasting resources on development of these and focus on the two most important components.
Look forward to 2015. All 64 bit mobile O/S and processors. More RAM, more storage. Lower FAB process. Nano tech batteries (please, just do it). Improved construction and durability.
Let's see if they meet my expectations ;)

Anonymous, 25 Feb 2014People complain, yet sales will be high...Nope.. Samsung fanboys always believed they are "smarter" and "better" consumers then normal people. They only buy highest tech / best parts at cheapest rates.
So if samsung fanboys are smart, they will not buy this device that have hardly any improvements at all.
If they still suckered in and buy, they are no better then iSheeps. hahaha
popaj, 25 Feb 2014Yet I can not wait lg g3 coming in May this year. who will have 2k HD display, Snapdragon 805,... moreTru, but it's possible another launch of Note 4 and Note 4 mini with new spec's and SoC 64 bit.
TRK, 25 Feb 2014buy a piece of plastic and think of leather... lol
but regarding the size good for enema...
i have waited this phone since last quarter of 2013,,and when I've watched the launch last night, i feel disappointed about its looks, very similar to its predecessor, the resolution is still the same...and non aluminum casing as well..no classy feel at all.
What if what they have changed most is the price..? Maybe it'll cost 1/3 less than current S4, then they will sell a bucket-load and no-one will complain that not much has changed from S4...
skazy, 25 Feb 2014Go away Samsung, your phone looks in design as Galaxy S Advance, so you actually want to feel ... moreHahaha you're joking right?
I have an s3, and there is no way its better than s4. you are just disappointed coz its not as good(specs) as what the rumors suggested.
Go away Samsung, your phone looks in design as Galaxy S Advance, so you actually want to feel people that they bought a low product. My S3 still looke better in design than S4, S5.
popaj, 25 Feb 2014Yet I can not wait lg g3 coming in May this year. who will have 2k HD display, Snapdragon 805,... moreTrue, but I still pick Samsung because I can sell it on higher price then buy a new phone.
Vino31, 25 Feb 2014Yes Samsung design is not the best but you can type with one hand, unlike square Z2.Yet I can not wait lg g3 coming in May this year. who will have 2k HD display, Snapdragon 805, Adreno 420, 16 mps ois camera, 3GB of RAM, FM radio and much more,. LG has always had innovation in technology, how those mighty rewards and recognition to many fairs. s5 disappointment and Samsung as a company
the worst ever upgrade of s series phones....this one will sell very very slowly...no doubt...don't expect long queues of customers waiting to grab one !
Yes Samsung design is not the best but you can type with one hand, unlike square Z2.
