I cannot get over how sexy #1 is, it would match the HTC One in "premium feel" and silence all the whiners.

I too voted 1, but i also liked the 10th one. I wonder why don't Samsung hire those guys, aren't they just amazing designers, but no they would probably stick to thier plastic. So Sad :( Let's just hope that plastic gets out.

What's wrong with plastic and how many people don't keep their phones in a case anyway? Plastic keeps the price/weight down, and any aestethic issues can just solved with an awesome looking case. #1 is so sexy, I just hope they get rid of that aweful home button and either have capacitive or onscreen buttons.

I think there is a good chance Samsung will put dual front speakers on the s4,they did it on the note 10.1 and the effectiveness was great

Concept numbers 1,4,5,8 and 9 are all really good but the real S4 aint gonna be anything like those

The first one is pretty awesome, while the 2nd is all but confirmed to be the real one. It's actually not bad as reports indicate it will be around the S3's size but packing a larger screen, plus no aluminum body will allow you to charge wirelessly, but they shouldn't charge for the technology.

Yeah, the 3 was the on-screen button concept, thx God they went with the physical one.

#1 definitely. Metal accents + front speakers + matte polycarbonate = win.

Whatever looks and design Galaxy S4 might have I'd still go for it and that's for sure.

So if it looked like a 5 inch dildo with a middle ordinary Samsung physical home button you'll go for it? :)

1st of all the os thing is not nokia's fault. And Ya Nokia is sometimes pridictable but i'll bet you can never guess its next flagship (i'm sure it'll be the best looking device out there) ... And samsung's phones seriosly resemble each other... And if u deny that; dude, get ur eyes checked!

I hope they could let you choose and make your own design of a phone according to your preference. That would be awesome! =))))

isn't that what android does. you can choose through hundreds of phones that run android and buy the one with your most faviorite design? unlike IOS

We all know it will look very similar to s3 its Samsung crying out loud the note looks exactly like s2 note 2 looks like s3 and to be more realistic s4 will look number two.

Instead of my very own early concept, #4, you should have posted my latest one, the one on YouTube with 600+K views. :D

Two steps from hell- strength of 1000 men song pretty much summed it up.
