Samsung Galaxy S IV to introduce touchless gestures for screen navigation

0. phoneArena 07 Feb 2013, 08:30 posted on

Remember the "floating touch" tech on the Sony Xperia sola, that lets you hover your finger over the screen and select links or pictures in websites without actually touching the display..?

People normally don't care about real innovator.. Credits and bla bla... They just care about final products.. I understand your concern on these matters but I suggest you to do a very good research from creditable source.. Because by your comments you don't seem neutral and you are heavily biased towards Sony.. Spen and stylus are not same.. They serve different purpose.. You can't say it as a copied technology just because it looks like a stylus.. Now, as you may say it's a pen and pen were here since 100 of years so it's a copied pen and copied stylus.. Chill dude, how can you expect Sammy fanboys to accept truth
when you comment in such a biased way and try to prove that only Sony innovates.. Me being neutral cannot trust you as you really don't know how note 2 works. How can you expect Sammy fans to accept you? You say credit should go to the true innovator and you don't know the differences between stylus and spen. Comeon be a creditable man.. Sony makes great product but don't loose your creditability by commenting only on sony's favor..

XPERIA-KNIGHT..

Calm your tits please. It's not that serious. People are starving and dying from horrible living conditions around the world, and you're worried about "who thought of it first?"

Please, grow up (unless you're a little kid). And that applies to all of you worried about such trivial matters, whether you are a samsung, sony, or apple fan.

Last Time I checked a smartphone with a stylus which did nothing was called a PDA a couple years back, and if you are going that route how bought we say Sony stole that idea from Nintendo's Ds,

Apple didn't create Siri!!!!!!!!!! for crying out loud they bought it, and actually HTC took intertest in it first, but Apple out bid them and thus they got it, plus Apple has Siri (unchanged) since 2008

What about newton tablet????
Don't compare old tech with new one....stylus was dead....if sony had a stylus why didn't they used in their flagships????
Samsung reinvented the stylus..and now many are trying to copy it...that's the truth .

This could be awesome.
Sony's take was just an infant attempt.
But flicking through sites and menus without touching the screen.. well that's what I'm talking about

I really like Samsungs innovation! If only they could combine it with hardware like HTC and a better looking UI like Sense without it being too heavy on the processor! But I'm seriously considering switching to Samsung soon!

WhT IS WRONG WITH SOME PEOPLE? Like really. Why do we hate other companies? For what I ask. This is good news for samsung fans, whether copying or not. We can call Samsung copycat as much as we like, they will keep selling their phones and hang on to the top brand recognition, because they deliver features packed smartphones. Sorry htc, apple, moto and nokia fans, but this is good news to sammys fans. I think you dont like the idea because your favourite companies cant deliver on features. Jealousy is the ugliest trait.

Sony fans! Not so long ago you've got an excellent smartphone Xperia Z. Sony was able to add this incredible feature into specs! They had almost a year to polish the sola's function and make it a selling point. Instead they created another masterpiece. Fail, sony!

'so that gives samsung the right to "steal" they're idea because sony took another route with the waterproof xperia Z? i wonder what they would of did if sony included BOTH of these features in the Z!

Sammy is a good copycat, they like adopting "an infant" and bring up a bestseller. Sony is a great company but they lack marketing and they need a lesson to be teached by companies like apple and sammy.

i think you must wait till the end of year and then write this comment. Sony is independent just for a year and we see every Samboy is completely afraid of its rise. so wait and watch. sony is just starting the show.

Dunno about Sony guys around here, but I wouldn't mind if a company brings something great from all the manufacturers in a phone. Moreover, if Sony couldn't market the idea, why not let others do a better job? To conclude, I think that the SGS4 will send the Xperia Z with the boring S4 Pro chipset, LCD(not OLED) screen and full breakable glass design to the bathroom..

really?? i think you forgot your S3 with its quad cores were defeated in performance by Sony's duals like T and V. and i think glass is more valuable and classy than cheap plastic. even those OLED with their saturated colors are rubbish. Sony devices produce the most real colors.

you want the source?
http://www.gsmarena.com/sony_xperia_v_goes_on_sale_in_russia_steeply_price-review-877p4.php
take a look at different benchmarks and you'll see V has defeated S3 in almost all of them.
