Samsung Galaxy S 4 display, Air View and Air Gesture demoed on video

5-inches of 1080p Super AMOLED goodness – that's what graces the front side of the new Samsung Galaxy S 4. We're referring, of course, to the smartphone's gorgeous display panel, which matches or even outperforms in certain ways the displays used on other high-end devices available today. But specs aren't everything. There's a few more cool tricks that the Samsung Galaxy S 4 has up its sleeve, made possible by its exceptionally sensitive display...

All I am going to be seeing most of the time is the screen on this phone. Why bother about the looks? This phone is far from being ugly. I don't like aluminium materials,they scratch easily. It has features I like and a good camera,an s3 upgrade is not awful at all. I am getting this phone. Looks are not what I am going to be using day to day, it's the features and how fast the phone responds that matters to me.

Would you buy a million dollar ferrari if it looked like this:http://image3.mouthshut.com/images/ImagesR/2012/12/Maruti-Suzuki-800-925000042-1003655001-1.jpg . It's possible to have a removable battery/MSD slot and a decent quality of plastic on a phone.

Honestly toughing any phone in a case doesn't make any difference. All are same when dressed in a case ... who keeps their phone "NUDE" :D

Honestly i have started liking S4 :)

I do not know what is wrong with Galaxy S4 haters.
This phone is truly perfect.
If the problem is just design,that's ok.go for another brands but remember last year everyone complained about S3 design but after a brief experience they had,they have changed their view!
Finally I should say if you are looking forward to a perfect phone without consideration very beautiful design,S4 will be the best and unbeatable choice ;)

samsung mobile chief say '' Innovation is what will get consumers to
buy new devices.''
but GALAXY S4 just copying what other phone can do they copy LG, NOKIA, HTC, AND NOW SONY
FYI The Xperia sola was the first device from Sony to
include Floating touch technology. The technology
makes it possible for the smartphone to detect a
finger up to 0.79 inches (20mm) above the screen.
So mr shin where is the innovations????

haha you are funny guy xperia sola is Announced 2012, March and samsung galaxy note 2 with stylus air view is Announced 2012, August you tell me who the copy cat???
Shin talking about innovations but samsung galaxy S4 is just copycat device even s4 copying s3 design
xperia z have more innovations than s4 let
for example sony have the first mobile camera sensor with HDR MODE ON PHOTO AND VIDEO
xperia z is the first sony quad core with last year SOCs AND IF YAOU COMPARE XP Z with last year device XP Z is the king on benchmark and sony will show you what is true innovations with their next flagship
and samsung will continue copying

You are contradicting yourself.
"Die Hard" fan never switches sides. Look at iFans ... most would defend the crap till death :)

Whilst it's always tricky to comment on the quality of a phone screen without actually seeing it in real life, what seems to be the case with every video I have seen of the S IV so far is a noticeably white screen (as opposed to the blue tinge of the S3) and definitely very, very bright output, which has not been a Samsung AMOLED strong suit yet. Seems that now, they have solved this issues - an early well done!

This is better built than s3 so it might do a better job in drop test. There is plastic and metal.

Samsung lovers are beginning to sound like Apple nuts, what is so amazing about this design, it looks inexplicably like the Galaxy Note II...I wouldn't be surprised if it isn't using the exact same chassis. Samsung is really taking a play from Apple's book, this is like the iPhone, Iphone 3G, Iphone 3GS all looked strikingly similar with only a few marginal differences that you'd have to squint to see.
Just as long as they didn't go HTC route with that stupid open face glass on the DNA that mess will shatter if it falls flat on it's face. I already had my first DNA do just that, now I need to have a case, I hate phone cases with a passion...Motorola still reigns supreme in build quality that I have used. HTC still low as usual.
