The GS3 can't even do a simple function as 'copy and paste' without crashing and they're releasing the 4th one already?

What do I know about work? I'm not sure what that's supposed to mean or what it even has to do with anything. I have a job, so I guess I know about work.

Samsung has known about this issue since October and still hasn't fixed it.

@maccess Fortunately mine was plagued with this flaw. So Verizon gave me a Droid DNA as a replacement.

Never said it was the end of the world. I simply pointed out a flaw in the GS3 that Samsung continually refuse to fix. That is all.

Now go back to your physically undesirable mom's basement.

I think it will set a new record for number of pre-orders.

I can't wait. Although the HTC fans are probably less patience than we are. They are probably praying to god that people will buy the HTC One before the GS4 released. And they are probably praying that the GS4 doesn't trounce the HTC One. Although it probably already did considering they have the buttons in the right places already unlike the HTC One.

That is all it needs really. Buttons in the right place like the GS3 and a 3000 mah battery and then the HTC One is as good as done.

Why so rude, you hurt my feelings as an HTC fan :'(

Seriously though, I wouldn't consider myself a HTC fan. I'm a fan of any manufacturer that gives great build quality and uses a good OS and/or custom UI. Sony, Motorola, HTC, and Nokia (to an extent) fit that; HTC more so than the others.

If the GS4 has good build quality and better software features (I'm 95% positive that it will have better software), I'll be more than happy to compare it to the HTC One as an option for my new device when my upgrade comes in April, or I just might buy it unlocked if the carrier branding bugs me.

I'm a fan of Samsung's software (as of 2012), their displays, and their usually high spec count. I'm just completely turned away from their products with the design though. This Galaxy S2 I have will be the first and last Samsung smartphone I own if the GS4 doesn't have good build quality.

Also, button placement is judged by preference and 3,000 mAh is a dream bubble that's bound to be popped. Samsung barely fit a 3,100 mAh battery in the Note II which the GS4 will be nowhere close to in terms of size. I expect no more than 2,600 mAh, and that's being optimistic.

Button placement is about ergonomics, unless everyone doesn't have 5 fingers and thumbs in the same place, placing the power button on the top left of such a tall phone and placing the home button where yoiu have to bend your thumb unnaturally is poor button placement, yet HTC never learns.

As far as the battery, if Motorola can do it, I am sure Samsung can. Or they can just buy the batteries from them.

Now that we know the Qualcomm 800 is ready for a ZTE phone, the HTC fans are now praying that the GS4 doesn't use a 800.

Trying to keep an open mind this time around. I think I over hyped the GS3 myself and although I was disappointed at first it grew on me and is my favorite phone to date. I'm just looking forward to see what innovation Sammy is offering this time around and if it will be a true upgrade to the GS3. Not just a Galaxy S3 S like good old apple is known for. Give me a better screen, better processor, better cam, and bigger battery and ill pre order this baby in a heartbeat.
