According to manufacturer they didn't solve the problem with CPU comsumption power. Meaning you buy today the latest smart phone the problem still there. You need to charge from time to time. Just observe they cannot stay in 24 hrs during operation time or incase of emergency.

I travel a lot, why not make this phone with a DUAL SIM SLOT that way you can just switch over to another sim card instead of going through all that taking out and putting another sim in the same slot.
I would like to be able to use other things on the phone but still able the disable telephone facilities. for example when abroad I would like to use the camera but not receive calls. this is not about silincing the phone
Endsofinvention, 12 Feb 2013The thing I really miss the most is being able to go a week without charging your phone. All t... moreThe battery life on these devices is limited because you always find something to do on you phone. The phones that got 6-7 days of battery life, were not permanently connected to internet, no facebook permanent notifications, no messenger permanently running, no youtube, you get the idea.
If you turn off Mobile Data, Wifi, and do not use facebook and other social apps (Messenger, Skype, etc.) and use your phone for calling and sms you can squeeze up to 4 days out of a galaxy S3. I did that test a week ago, and I got 3 days only with calls, sms, and wifi permanently on but effective using of about 10-20 min/day for checking mail and fb.
The thing I really miss the most is being able to go a week without charging your phone. All the processing power is wonderful but I would sooner have a powerful tablet and have the superfast wifi hotspot, good camera and an awesome battery life in the form-factor of that tiny nokia that came out a decade or so ago. What happened to tiny phones with massive talk time?
The Galaxy has to stay a phone first and tablet second unlike the Note 2 and 10.1 which are definitely the other way around,
The Only thing that maybe it will be a bit less, is the CPU (obviously i don't hope).but all the other specs must be, or exactly or better than this of the list (above).because Samsung want to hold the throne! , so it can't be less!, and considering the competitors!.so come on Samsung made the best!!!!!! (The galaxy s4)
it is just rumer about galaxy s4. I guess specification gonna be more better than described above.
Anonymous, 08 Feb 2013OLED? Can someone explain the benefits of flexible OLED as it relates to handsets. Ok, saves ... moreFor startes Amoleds actually preform way way way way better i sunlight. Its the contrast levels. They use less power, space, only screens capable of showing black, much better viewing angles, ultimate contrast, and vastly better response times. Amoled in general is a much better technology than LCD. They already have bendable Amoled screens because it's technically a bendable substance. It's getting a phone that can move with the screen that's the issue. So overall you probably wont see one for a while. Maybe a phone that can slightly bend without being stressed for starters, but most likely a while before anything else. As what comes from it...a bendable device. That's cool and it could save from lots of damage.
umair, 11 Feb 2013I m not going to buy this sIv for two reasons 1. Screen is small .my note 2 has 5.5 2.batter... moreOk? Then you wait for the Note 3. For a phone a 5inch screen and 2600MAH battery are quite large. If you are looking for 3000-4000MAH battery and 5-6inch screen there is the Note and it's competitors.

bob, 10 Feb 2013Battery consumption is a on going issue with samsungBattery consumption is an ongoing problem with all mobile technology. Don't be naive enough to pinpoint it on one company.
mayoneysz, 11 Feb 2013samsung sucks!
because the screen display is like a cartoons,like s2..
and made by plastick.... moreLmao. And black on a Sony/HTC/LG/Crapple screen looks like old black and white tv instead of black.
And Sony and HTC...and all others have plenty of plastic phones...99% of phones are plastic...
So...where are you getting with this?
because the screen display is like a cartoons,like s2..
and made by plastick.. its so cheap!!!
go for sony or htc.. its more better
Can't wait (like the rest of the industry) for SGS IV to be unveiled. Think the Samsung YOUM tech has come too late for this baby but curved display anyone?
It's true that with samsung smartphones you don't need high capacity battery as standard because it's replaceable and very easy to get aftermarket high mah batteries, BUT I HOPE 2600mah is not true and be at least 3000mah.
On another note, why the hell we still buy a smartphone with only 16GB of internal storage? We are in 2013 with hundreds of thousands of digital contents not 2008, internal storage is proven to be better and faster than microsd card! It needs to be 64GB as standard at least.
best phone evr is samsung galaxy s4 because sony z has 1.5ghz n note 2 has 237 ppi (pixel density) so s4 is d best..........! m waiting 4 it to release as early as possible
VICHU, 11 Feb 2013is this phone better than sony xperia-z ? replay me pls because i thought xperia z is today's... moreOn paper, and to date, the Sony xperia Z is better then Samsung galaxy s4.but the thing is, that Sony already announced the specs, but Samsung no, but 99% galaxy s4 will be better!.so my advice is to wait for the galaxy s4! , and i will surely do the same my friend!
