With the Galaxy S4, analysts believe that Samsung was "taking its last steps in Apple’s shadow", hinting that what started as a direct response to Cupertino's smartphone success, the Galaxy S line, will get a complete revamp in the 5th edition next year. One of the big changes Samsung was claimed to introduce is a radical departure from the plastic builds to premium look and feel, involving metal casings, and there is even a whole project in the conglomerate, dubbed Design 3.0, that revolves around decisions on the next flagships exterior...

this would make it heavier, thicker, non-replaceable battery and more expensive.

Reason why Samsung is best.
1. No company listens and strives to give their customers what they want like samsung(4' 640p tiny iphones.lol)
2. No company out there has better hardware like samsung period( even your iphone is part samsung)
3. No android fon has features more than a galaxy note series( jealous people call it gimmick)
4. flexible screens anyone??
5. 64 bit true octa core chips??
6. full RGP 1080p Samoled screens??
7. Fast updates and support
A samsung galaxy just feels like a w8 in your pocket. i don't know what my galaxy can't do???
so yes this is the best tech company ever and when they switch to metal we will see what the haters will have to criticize now.

Does the Note 3 have a pentile or an RGB screen?

Woahh! I can't wait for this one. Gosh, Samsung really listens to their customers. Woah! Even though it will be expensive, as long as it has Premium Built and Great Design, Plus Great Specs and features, I WILL DEFINITELY Buy it. I love my S4 so much, but if the S5 will be what I've said then Boom. Looking forward for this one. Woah 2014 is getting exciting for smartphone world. Way to go Samsung, the face of android!

Just out of curiousity, how many of you DON'T use cases with their phones? I never understood this whole 'premium feel' arguement as everyone I know who uses an iphone or a high end galaxy phone always uses it with a case.

So true, my G2 feels so sexy in hand and yet so fragile. With no insurance i am no way in hell not using a case, which is why incipio needs to hurry their butt up because i am sick of waiting for a drop to happen. Not paying 600$ for another phone no sir

Design looks cool but they should have been on this side of the smartphone spectrum before anyone else. They claim to be premium but lack the proof. So while this is a step in the right direction for them, i remain unimpressed. This is what their phones should look like
