Samsung must be pretty peeved by now, but the Chinese source that leaked the dual-SIM version of the Galaxy S 4 for China Unicom, is the gift that keep on giving, hours before the official launch...

To be honest, the design was what I wanted to S3 to be in the first place, not too rounded like the S3 is now, but still looking sleek with it's curves

I said "one of the best". We don't even know yet, what this generation of Galaxy S is going to bring.

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.

XPERIA V have removeable battery, micro sd, IP
rating, 4G and good battery life
if you want to know what sony can do with DUAL
CORE ON XPERIA V just see benchmark result and
compare with QUAD CORE GALAXY S3
with XPERIA V you can calling, chating, browsing, and playing games in heavy rain, swimming pool, or
beach
XPERIA give you beauty, durability, and real
innovations and until this day only SONY is able to do
that

hahaha galaxy not bad at all the plastic maybe light but not durable go to androidauthority and see iphone5 vs galaxy s3 drop test and you'll see how bad the plastic on galaxy
if look sony for example the xperia have diffrent desaign every year
their flagship
xperia arc, xperia s, xperia t, xperia z and xperia zl
thas what i call innovations in desaign
if you complain about removeable battrey you can buy xperia v
with only dual core xperia v beat quad core galaxy s3 on benchmark
xperia z is the champion benchmark with last year quad core SOC
Even good enough to compete with 2013 SOC device if you want real innovations just wait for next sony flagship
this is what samsung mobile chief j.k shin say ''Innovation is what will get consumers to
buy new devices''

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

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.

I have to agree with you on that.

Airview is pretty amazing and innovative, I'm highly impressed. Everything else is....kinda lame. The floating navigation didn't seem to work that well and you're right, how many different ways do we need to pause a video? lol. First palm to pause and now this? The Galaxy S V will then have blink pause. Reminds me of all the Samsung "features" I turn OFF.

I'm still waiting for the whole best thing since color tv features to come up. I hope these aren't anywhere close to the highlights.

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.

I don't know, float can become the best type of hover, when browsing the web and stuff.... If used everywhere could be something you can live with

Of topic... Where have you been man? I barely get to see you around
