I love these videos as a designer myself to see all the hard work they have done

As a s4 owner, I have to say how frustrated and pathetic I can be when looking at this gorgeous design. If only my beloved corporation would make such a phone. At least now I have an ugly plastic brick that can take my heart rhythm. That's what I've always dreamed on.

Should we believe, that you are S4 owner??? "If only my beloved corporation(samsung) would make such a phone."(ROTFL) You really underestimate our intelligence, iboy.

Um, it means the device is more compact. Hardly what I would call nothing...... In fact, I would say being as compact as possible for the screen size, which means the bezels need to be as small as possible without it affecting your user experience, should be the number 1 priority for MOBILE phones. Not a race between Nokia, Sony, and HTC in who can put the most useless hardware that no one asks for that needlessly increases the size of the handset. Even Samsung has fallen victim to this with the GS5. Let's hope the Note 4 isn't 10.5 mm thick in order to make it waterproof or add OIS. Honestly, iPhone level camera is ideal, no need for 40mp, ultra, waterproof, heart rate monitor, dual camera bull crap. Give it next gen specs and performance, make it the same size as the GS5 and bam. Almost everyone that can live with OLED screens would buy it, even the haters.

Number one priority? Are you serious man? What about battery tech? Imo phones are already too thin. I don't have baby hands and my hand cramps up on these current phones

Think about it. If you can get a Note 4 and all of its features into the size of a GS5. That would be an instant runaway success. You would have phablet and Spen power in a package that is smaller than tyhe new HTC One. I would buy it instantly. That is definitely where companiess s hould go. Yes battery is important but it just needs to last the day easily IMO.
