me too ! Personally I believe one will get bored of the design in few months. Only in S4's case it might be a bit early. But cutting edge technology and timely updates (even S2 is still getting updated to Jelly Bean unlike HTC's flagship of 2011 Sensation which is still on ICS) goes a long way in becoming future proof !

Thats true...I personally like the features offered by s 4 to any other phone...Though i'm very fond of note series...I would definetely go for s 4 or note 3...

The only bad thing about the S4 is construction and design, everything else is great

i was banned for using words like idiot and fool

however i must say that this galaxy s4 looks just like a galaxy note. no innovation.

however i understand Le Market strategy. s4 is wat s3 should have been

LOL............thanks for warning me ! Will take care in future :)

It does look terribly like Note 2 but insides are quite a bit different. But then again you really can't bring something groundbreaking in 6 months or so !

This test is an example of how Sammy is splitting their market up (U.S. vs. everywhere else). It may not be the smartest move for them. The video's tests were run on the S600 chipset. If the Exynos 5 Octa chip smokes the S600, U.S. sales may suffer. If the VZW edition of the Note III features the Exynos 5 Octa chip, I may swap my Note II for the Note III. But I am definitely not going to be buying the GS IIIS.

Sammy may have been right to not want to name the new phone the GS 4 (bad luck and what-not)....

exynos octa won't smoke snapdragon 600 because of 1 very simple reason, they just can't up the frequency of the chip high enough because it will drain your battery in mere hours...I read somewhere that A7's are actually clocked at 1,6 and that A15 are at 1,2, but i also read that A7 cant go higher than 1,2...so who knows

"The Exynos 5 Octa side is a bit more interesting. Samsung is calling the SoC a 1.6GHz Octa-core part, but that appears to be the clock speed for the four Cortex A7 cores. The four Cortex A15 cores will run at up to 1.2GHz, which should help keep power consumption manageable"

At least half the people (Im sure the figure is more) that would purchase this phone in the U.S have no idea what CPU stands for. Or what the CPU does. They simply want the phone because its new, its shiny, its on TV and their friends and coworkers have it.

Dont give this too much thought.

Will definitely buy the Octa-core version, that will smash all benchmarks. All the software features are amazing, Plus hopefully a Wolfson Audio codec for sweet audio quality

Don't be angry cos the iphone 5 is far into the distance, the Iphone 5S will still have your puny little less than HD display at the so called "RETINA" display(326ppi), People are talking about 1080p display now with north of 440 ppi ok. Iphone is a toy compared to those beasts, we are ANDROID and we rule!!! period!

Not only that, but we have recently pushed the boundary for all existing PowerVR Series5XT GPUs with a new series of API extensions which include OpenGL ES 3.0 features like MRTs, occlusion queries, seamless cube maps, sampler access from vertex shaders, floating point textures, GLSL full-precision floating point, R and RG textures, min/max blends, and multisample render buffers. We expect to see developers taking full advantage of all these added features soon, as they provide a valuable differentiator for our semiconductor licensees and OEM partners.

What does smash all the benchmarks do again? All the software features are great. Yes, but they're "software", which means with the magic of XDA. Everyone can have that software features.

Having it out of the box for the public is entirely different thing from porting it on XDA, as for the benchmarks, i just like the high scores, not that it matters in real world

Magic of XDA? LMAO! Seem like you don't go on XDA often.
Do you know why "softwares" like MultiWindow cannot be ported to other non-samsung devices? Because it requires TW frameworks to work!
