I gotta say samsung are really good when it comes to software features
But the design is almost the same and I dont see any noticeable difference in speed

I even think that whatever new software features that are coming with the s4 are gonna be also available in s3 once it gets a new update

These features are useless and the UI looks like Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
What is innovative in this phone?S Voice ))) ?This ugly plastic?5 inch?
@I have S3 which is amazing,but in the next few months I am gonna buy the HTC One.No plastic anymore.
And removable battery for what?I pay more than 600 Euros on a phone to replace its battery?

It's kinda sad how some people exaggerate how "ugly" this phone is. No one would be saying that if the s3 and note 2 didn't exist.

These Chinese leaks are prototypes according to a Samsung insider on Sammobile, the final design will be revealed today. But it'a FingAirView all right, and I love it.

Note II users: can you set AirView function to instantaneous reaction like mouse?

Here is the statement as it appears on sammobile: According to our insider who gave us the first info on the Octa-Core and the PHOLED screen this is not the real deal. This is just one of the prototypes flying around and we know there are a few flying around of those. He told us to trust him. We will know if he was right tonight! And for some reason i believe it , because everybody forgot the official picture samsung had tweeted couple days ago it's totally different from this prototype .

BTW notice the warm colors on the screen, no cold AMOLED tinting, it looks gorgeous.

I have nothing to say how ignorant you are

Not only are those features useful itself, but also they will let the developers have a lot of ideas for their future applications

It's unfair to call someone ignorant over not being impressed by these features. On it's face these seem like nothing more than gimmicks. We'll have to wait and see what developers do with these features. Specs are comparable to the HTC One and comes in an uglier package as far as these preliminary pics seem to demonstrate. It's just too early to judge but my kneejerk reaction says the HTC One is the way to go.

can your phone do that,,,,i guess the only innovation your phone has is the built in which the manufacturer paid too much attention,because they know that somehow in someway there are dumb people like you.who only knows that if a phone is goodlooking they can be called innovation....sorry for you but we love features.....future is here.

doesthis thing float images?...or just highlights...relying on other news and reviews have you tried it?...no..
sola only hightlights text and news headers...it doesnt float images or text....see the difference....and why sony did not include in their So called flagship?because they sucks bigtime...and the floating images or airview is licensed to SAMMY...your sola is just plain Floating Highlighter...it doesnt float subjects or contents...ever wonder why sony did not sue sammy on airview...because they own it...sola float is different and dumb.

Why didn't Sony sue Sammy on AirView? Because its a feature that's already in the default Android Gallery since Gingerbread, 2 finger pinching a picture.
I rely on other news, so what? They're trust able source and not s**t that's coming out of your mouth.
