i got my tv 3 or soo years ago and its Led the guy i bought it from said LCD tvs were not being used as much and that Led would be the way to go. I love my led tv and again this was 3 or 3 and half years ago. So i also agree that LCD tvs you dont see much of them anymore.

According to the rumors asian version will have a Exynos 5 processor

Probably because Exynos doesnt support LTE? Just my blind guess. Asian S3 was Exynos quad core + 1 Gb Ram, while USA's was Snapdragon S4 duo core + 2Gb RAM. Snapdragon was used for USA's variant because of LTE chip.

Samsung fixed that problem though, as you can see with the U.S variants of the Note II having Exynos and LTE.

The S4 looks good, but why wouldnt they have 4.2.2 available at launch. makes no sense to have the phone at 4.2.1 then update it within the same month. Id assume that there isnt much improvement between the two. Lets see how much it'll be.

Because units are already rolling off factory lines and being packed to have enough for next month's launch, so the included SW had to be ready weeks ago. Samsung will do what it always does by releasing the first big update upon launch, bringing some 10-20% performance and efficiency benefits.

Better yet: it'll get 4.2.2 before Xperia Z and HTC One gets 4.2.1.

If it does have the Exynos 5 it better have a huge battery. i'm sorry but an A15 quad core seems like overkill, but for some odd reason I still want it...

The Galaxy S4 will have the FLEXIBLE DISPLAY something nobody in the industry would've expected. It will also have the Exynos 5 Octa 5410 processor with the PowerVr SGX 544Mp3 Gpu. Clearly the Galaxy S4 will be the BEST DEVICE on the market till the Galaxy Note 3 launches in September/October 2013.

And what would you do with a flexible display on a non-flexible phone?

If it has a Flexible Display it will be a mega-hit! We will have to wait just 6 more days! :)

@Bone, what would you do with a flexible display on a non-flexible phone?
Drop tests without breaking the display ;)
The display will be unbreakable...isn't that enough?

Haroon, That is wrong; display is flexible, true, but the glass is not as flexible. Let's say you dropped the phone against a pavement and the thin bezel dented, twisting the glass and breaking the glass, the fragments can still damage the screen underneath. Tis happened to both my S2 and my friend's S3. Gorilla Glass has high scratch resistance but low tensile strength, which means twisting (not bending) it can break it. Im not going to buy another Samsung again, ever.

You just made your own theory about how flexible glass works. Where did you come up with that lame theory?
S2 and S3 do not have a flexible display. They are not even in production yet. Plus, you have to be really dumb to blame Samsung for a fault you mention that is in Gorilla glass. Gorilla glass never claimed to be unbreakable. It is still very strong and much stronger than ordinary glass that was used before on smartphones or cell phones. Almost all manufacturers use Gorilla Glass. Maybe you should stop buying from all of them?

If it does amoled display again, i hope they will make it at least 450 nits of brightness.

Amoled displays have highest contrast ratio. Sunlight doesn't get easily reflected of its surface.
