Definitely all items on that list look very appealing. If Samsung has IGZO displays in its phone then that is going to be the game changing phone next generation because 3200 mAh plus IGZO frugality will be ridiculous. Apple should have gone for a larger battery instead of thinness imho, but they could have a couple surprises for all we know.

This report speculates the Samsung model would have an Amoled display and that they Apple phones will have the IGZO display. Otherwise I agree, cant wait for a phone with IGZO display based on all the great things I've heard about it.

That's a concept, the iPhone 6 doesn't actually exist yet.

Believe nothing until the companies respective leads are on stage making announcements.

1080p or 2272x1280 (?), 2GB RAM, A8 chip and just 1800mAh?....my head hurts.
Captain Obvious, help me~!

The resolutions (both) more or less keep the pixel density the same, allowing developers an easier way to upgrade apps without having to worry about 30 different densities. Also, the battery is that low probably because they have decided to keep the phones so thin (expected 6 mm). The IGZO display will more than make up for it if the power saving features of IGZO are as they say they are. A8 chip will likely be an overclocked A7 if it is released in Q2 2014 instead of an all new chip likely because enough time hasn't been given to develop/produce a whole new chip in bulk. Likely they might also shrink the process when not making a new core which is what most chip companies do these days(intel tick tock strategy). 2GB of ram is the least they can do in that regard.

Wait what, 2nd quarter launch on an iPhone, wouldn't that piss off all the 5s customers?

Why should it matter? One day they're happy with their purchase and the next not - just because a new device has been launched?

couldn't help but take a shot huh? apple is the only company that release once a year. Your android phone is outdated in 3 weeks most of time. More often than not its the android users think like that (not all). Also, i see a lot more 4S phones on the market then 3 year old androids

How can you tell they are 4S? 4 and 4S look exactly the same.

You have to look for the Antenna breaker band at the top of the phone (4 has it 4s does not have one on top of the phone, don't ask why I know this). Since they usually have a case though (for the premium feels) it can be a bit difficult.

Actually the Verizon and the Sprint iPhone 4 models don't have the antenna breaks on the top. Only the AT&T model has that. So you could be mistaking 4's for 4S's.

ok so if a 4 and 4s are the same lets say there are more 4 year old iphones than 4 year old androids. your just making his point stronger

That's true, android phones due become outdated faster. HTC One (HTC One Maxx), s4, s4 black, s4 active, s4 s600, s4 octa exynos, s4 lte s600, s4 toaster, s4 toaster + s4 toaster Neo.

The S5's screen resolution is so pointless though.
I would seriously rather have a 1080p screen of that size because it would make the phone more efficient, without any loss in perceived sharpness of the screen.
This way the iPhone will again have superior on screen GPU results and that's the sort of stuff that will echoe through the media.

Samsung should really finally start to learn that more is not always better!

http://www.cultofmac.com/173702/why-retina-isnt-enough-feature/

A 200 PPI display vs a 300 PPI display makes a much larger difference than a 300 PPI display vs a 400 PPI display which makes a slightly larger difference than between a 400 PPI display vs a 500 PPI display.

I personally won't feel any major desire to have a QHD display but to say it's useless is wrong, being somebody who plays very few games on my phone that use 3D graphics I won't care about the performance hits either.

+1 for you.
I stand corrected, but still have to say that I am satisfied with sharpness of my Note 3 screen.
