you are idiot ferrari will never use cheap plastic, you know the beauty of android you can add any feature for free white magic technology is innovations exmore rs sensor is innovations The Xperia sola was the first device from Sony to include Floating touch technology. The technology makes it possible for the smartphone to detect a finger up to 0.79 inches (20mm) above the screen. Thats is innovations what samsung did just add more feature on it, it's call Customization not innovations

LOL you just jelly Sony will NEVER be as successful as Sammy. We don't need our phones to look pretty like some kind of fruit. Do you even own a Sony POS HAHAAAAAAA

wth is this new design... even as a prototype it just looks like s3. Come on sammy... I skipped S3 so I could buy S4 hoping for a new awesome design. Seriously I don't care about hardware specs that much. It's not like the old times with low CPU speeds and low RAM. And.. The new features are SmartPause? wtf? FloatTouch? the finger is just 2milimeter away from the screen, wtf???? I guess I will skip S4 as well and go for HTC One or something for now... Sorry samsung, you're losing a fan.

Floating gestures while surfing the web is pretty awkward... Airview is the only useful feature in this demo

Great! another "make up" but nothing impressive. nope... this time Samsung didn't made nothing better than a nice device for protecting us from a sun when making a call :)))

this floating feature i think can be more useful than you think. Ever been eating something messy like buffalo wings, or something greasy like some good ol sloppy pizza and a message comes through on your phone or email, etc and dont want to touch the screen...? I know i have.

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 . Stupid people talking s**t about the S4 already & they dont even know what thr real thing is going to look like. Lets all wait for the beauty tonight to reveal

and i think all these new software like floating feature are nice... but not usefall,they need to do it better for it to catch and do a "revelotionary" thing, the only thing i like in iphone that its easy and simple to use, a child 5 years old know what to do and so my grand-father 84 yo know... with this... to much thing that u can do and its not helpin! why the hell should i want the vid stop aotumaticly?! why should i want this floatin stuff..?! sammy just let me down! GO HTC!

I think this the real one. Look at the background of the banner and the texture of the body of the phone, its the same.

In my personal opinion the best mobile design is made by Sony,because Sony phones all have different design.The NXT series(S,P,U) had that transparent bar,then Xperia T,V and J,which used curved back design(SOny Ericsson Xperia Arc) and at last Sony Xperia Z and ZL use a whole new design.All their phones are fresh and new with new design.I like Nokia's design too,even though they need something new :D
