Galaxy s4 will be nothing like this, I assure you.
This just sound like an upgraded, phone version of their Galaxy player which has the same screen and dimensions.

It's just WAY to big to be put in the same line with the supposed S4 design

While I don't know whether this has any connection to the S4, a lot of sites are saying that this is targeted at older people as well as those with poor eyesight. The reason the resolution is so low is because they are going to make the buttons (or icons) on the phone larger and therefore easier to read.

This is the iphone fan user thumb you down. wait till tomorrow and you will see how many people will thumb you up. I totally agree with you. No way this is the new GS4....Not a chance. My note 2 is way faster than this and we all know that GS4 will rock in specifications.

Exactly. this is a phone targeted for old people. According to a article I saw it said the resolution was low-res to sport a ui with big icons for easy access for old people, Galaxy "Grand".

I have to say the shape is better than that of S3.

FCC sketches are not necessarily indicative of the shape of the final device.

I think you're absolutely correct, no way this is the Galaxy SIV (S4); although the dimensions are within plausibility, the specs' are totally deficient and completely lacking. This could, however, be the long awaited and unannounced iPad MiNi-MiNi-Me! Ooooh, can't wait for the official announcement.

Both android and iOS have alternatives that can accomplish the same things you mention.

I'm sorry, but WP and iOS are really completely inferior in compare to Android in almost every way

As much as I hate to admit it, this is completely true. Though I do hope WP8 catches up as it its new home screen is definitely something new... Unlike the most boring OS, IOS..

I see that you're gradually moving away from your hard line stance against Samsung products. The only obstacle to your purchasing a SS product as been narrowed down to build quality alone! Good for you mate. I once wouldn't look at a Sammy device cos I was so HTC & Sony Ericsson before discovering there was better offering with Samsung products. Strangely HTC & Sony make better "looking" hardware but the user experience just doesn't match Sammy 's.

77mm width is too large for for me... The gnote 2 has 80mm and I can't even press the back button with my left hand...

I'll stick to the iPhone 5 instead :)

You had me. Until you said iPhone.... Everyone who uses an iPhone can only handle everything that's small. I'm guessing your boyfriend/husband, if any, has small...... pens. For writing, that is.

I would be faster than the Galaxy S III if equipped with the same internal specs due to the lower screen resolution which is WVGA compared to HD. Still it is not for me..
