The S4 & HTC One are awesome smartphones. However the problem I have with android though is laggyness no matter how much quad cores and ram they include it still can't be "buttery smooth"; As google proclaim to say. My sis had the S3 and the minute she gave me to play with it lagged. I gave it back right away, didn't even bothered and just cherished wat I already have! Don't get me wrong. Other problem is the size. What happen to a normal 4"-4.3" screen with superior specs. Not everyone like big smartphones. Now here comes the epic battery fails. OK they bumped up the battery to 2300-2600 on both devices, but you do realize that now it has to manage a bigger screen with 1080 HD quality, oversize Touch Wiz/ Sense overlay that is already ontop of stock android and its more energy overdose quad-octa cores. Not to mention LTE. Now your battery is no different than an 1400-1500 size battery from 3yrs ago technology.
Will this device release with Qualcomm cpu in Canada? please answer me.

To me, this phone is a complete dissapointment! Same tactics from Apple, yodeling about "FEATURES" when not able to provide any real progress. How come that this device will be available also with Snapdragon 600? Is Samsung maybe not certain about its "Octa" processor?
S Voice is still considered as feature? Total dud, outperformed by Google Now by far (exists on all devices running JB)
Eye scroll and screen hover? Interesting story but real usage? On the other hand, if successful, how long until a 3rd party app will appear with same or more options?
Only thing worth of mentioning, in my humble opinion, is a feature from S3 which keeps the screen on until you are looking at it.
Touchwiz still looks like Chinese phone UI.
RESPECT to Samsung how many devices they sell with a pure marketing story.

[deleted post]Are you talking about the HTC with the 4-Mega pixel camera,, the one that has no Card slot,, nice? But that one is for naughty kidz..

Any one who does not like the s4's design should go for HTC one!! It looks so awesome and the speakers will be a plus..people who like more features,performance,branding,external SD :D,a good camera go for s4!! Which brand has ever given both? if you say apple then YOU know it will bore you to death!! Think logically!! WHAT DO YOU WANT? But please do not buy a HTC one and cover it with a plastic cover the first thing you do!! I will stick with Samsung again only because of the vast development base!!
Wish it had the Quality Build of the Nokia N9,, and the picture quality of the LG optimus G pro,, cause 130 grams of weight is just cheap plastic, but i love the Specs ,, but with no Radio ,, and 16 GB,, CAUSE 32 GB IS GONNA COST YU MORE ,, WHILE LG OPTIMUS HAS JUST ONE STANDARD PRICE,,
The more I look at the gs4, the more I like it. Just like the s3. It looks amazing in person.
Don't listen all the HTC fans going around saying the ONe looks better.
Same thing happened last year with the one x, remember? yeah,
The common consumer doesn't care about looks a lot, (like the s3) they look at the features,, that what sells. How are they gonna show off with the one? ohh it looks good and that's it.
People look at the features advertised the most.

Anonymous, 16 Mar 2013Great Job samsung. An amazing piece of engineering. What's really amazing about the Galaxy s4 ... moreThanks for that pic comparison because I have handled the Sony and its big compared to S4 on pic ,,meaning S4 more comfortable in hand I hope...The size and sharp blocky edges of the Sony were uncomfortable to me..
