The US version would have a Snapdragon 600. While it's clocked at 1.9GHz, it's not the same as Exynos Octa with SGX 544 graphics. :(

The new software features are actually pretty amazing, especially the Air features. Samsung, prepare to take my money next month for my birthday. :)

Why do you guys have to keep saying better than the iPhone 5? Who are you trying to convince us, or yourselves? Here hang on one sec... Better than the iPhone 5. Ok I get it already, the galaxy S3S is better than the iPhone 5.

So now there are fanboy divisions within the android community? It's gone from OS fanboys to handset maker fanboys?

what a tremendous disappointment. all Samsung has done is bring the specs up to par and shoehorn more TouchWiz features most of which require either more accessories or somebody else with a Galaxy S4 all over the Android 4.2 experience and i don't know if you guys noticed this but Google was hardly mentioned if at all in the entire presentation. the HTC One brings an overall more compelling package and i'm sure the Motorola X will too.

And quite a few of the new features are novelty and will just be unused bloat, like the dual camera feature, it just seems impractical to have your face stamped onto a photo.

The Exynos 5 Octa and full HD S-AMOLED display on the GS4 is very nice, but whether that will be enough to make it be considered over the One or Moto X is debatable. Samsung will have to ride on marketing to get their sales, which they undoubtedly will.

Should have called this the Samsung Galaxy S3s. Can't wait for all those new app to be ported out to the S3 though.

I really wanted them to adopt the on screen buttons, that would have improved the seeing 100 times

That's true. I thought they would drop the home button. It turns out all those Chinese leaks were true.

I'll save you the time and name the gimics

1. Stranslate: seriously?
2. Dual cam :(for video chat is one thing, but the idea of taking a picture or a video and then go and attach a picture of your face... SMH
3. That other weird camera thing
4. That thing where you use everyone speakers to play music..
5. New Svoice features... Lucky I still have Google Now!

That's all on my list for now...
