You are correct, +1 for you... but maybe that was the feeling it gave :-P Anyway in my opinion they should make variants that only differ in size, all the other "variants" that changes specs should be consider a different line. S4 mini, S4 Camera, S4 Active should have had same specs (with the exception of screen / camera / IPXX, respectively)

+1 to you as well. Too many people are too proud to admit to being wrong. Also, I agree with the rest of your post.

The screen was better or worse depending on which side you are on too. If you are a Samsung hater then they used superior technology for active's screen. If your Samsung or a Samsung fan then the original GS4 has the superior screen.

I hear ya, Taters. That's why I didn't bring it up. Really just a matter of preference when it comes to AMOLED vs. LCD.

I hope it's not waterproof at the expense of anything like Sony does. I don't want any flaps or a thicker profile when I won't need the waterproofing 99.9 percent of the time. Samsung might have really dropped the ball on this one....

I'll take water resistant, but really don't really have a need to be water proof.

NOTHING really exciting will come with this Samsung phone. I just know that. It will be nothing special compared with htc one 2, samsung z2/z2 compact, lg or iphone 6.

According to the haters but Samsung flagship phone that introduces all of their best internals that Samsung and Corning offers. That alone is already more exciting than all of the products you just mentioned.

we will see hoe they will handle the lagg and UI this time... because samsung phones with all the best internal clearly doesn't lagg more than all those I just mentioned. I mean S4 never lagged more than any phone.... yeah Samsung fanboy.

Easy, just get the google play edition. That way it destroys all the phones you just mentioned in software and internals....

yeah so easy.... first of all its hard to get google edition, second of all I can't because I live in sweden. Google play store in not open in sweden. Third.. I am talking about what you can get from the store today. And when the phone was new. If you want to keep embarrassing yourself and defend laggy phones despite having high pricetag and good internals... then you are just st*pid. Because HTC never lagged and looked IMO much much better. ALL the reviews said HTC One was the better phone and it was THE one to beat of 2013. Just admit you are a Samsung fanboy who blindly defend the phone. Also Sony z1 is water and dustproof HOW is S4 destroying the z1? z1 also got better specs and better software from the beginning without google play store edition. I really hate fanboy replies like yours who got no valid arguments at al.

It's nice to see that Samsung is going to implement the waterproof feature on S5 should this be true. I'm an Xperia owner and at first I was like "trying to overshadow Sony on this part?" but then I thought no, no, no. I'm not against Samsung or anything. This will definitely be a plus for them. Can't wait to see what they will offer us on MWC and Aony of course. ^^

IMO the phrase "waterproof" is overrated. They should come out with a device that can be dunk proof fully submerged. My SGS4 has seen all types of brutal conditions I have it in a Spigen case and I've dropped, exposed to pouring rain, freezing condition, dusty sandy conditions. It sweats when I take a shower since I have it playing music. I'm a truck driver so I'm exposed to many different elements on a daily basis and its been a champ. Only gripe is premium materials since the plastic chrome bezel has chipped away.. Anyways back to my point they need to go a step further and design a phone that not only looks great but is functional and is a tank..

Nice Samsung release phone first with useless gimmicks. So, HTC and Sony can release better smartphones!
