WAY TOO BIG, why can't anybody make a high-end 4.3" phone anymore. Thank god HTC sticked with 4.7" isntead of 5". It's a step in the right direction.
And it's UGLY.I don't ask samsung to do a aluminium unibody since it's just impossible for them to make one (even the ATIV S is just faux-metal); but at least get rid of the slippery shinny fingerpirnt magnet ugly faux-textured glossy "Hyperglase" crap, make it AT LEAST Matte.
Nowdays i don't care if a smartphone has an octacore chip with 4GB of ram, The S600 is already verry powerful, all i care about is battery life (well at least in the S4 you can swap batteries), design, and multimedia capabilities ( screen, speakers, camera...) and HTC got the 2 last categories.
And touchwizz is still ugly, from what i've seen from the HTC One, Sense 5 looks like a bit different version of stock android (it's got the HALO UI), while Touchwiz looks like android 2.x.
Can samsung hire software designers for both hardware and software??
And Smasung needs at least 32 GB of built-in storage, a micro SD slot isn't an excuse for a 16GB version, you can't install apps and games on it, and games nowdays are really heavy, especially with the upcoming 1080p phones.
And if this is pentile again, i'll have one big laugh.
HTC One, you're the One.

4.3 inch? It was way too small for touching experience & usage.

4.7 inch was the best size, but not the 4.3 inch/

That's just my opinion, one handed operation is important to me, but i could live with 4.7", NOT with 5". I own a nexus 4 right now, and if i needed something bigger i'll just use my iPad mini witch is always with me,

If this was S4, I am pretty sure 100% won't buy it, and go for HTC One, even Xperia Z look much much better than this.

You still have many choices, for example : Xperia Z, HTC One, Ascend P2, Z10 etc.

Yup, believe is the real thing, 'cause looks like another ugly design by Samsung; you have to give it to them, they are consistent.

But what about the screen, is it AMOLED or LCD, I mean UI is white all over and a nice white for that matter at last it looks nice because there is nothing to compare it with, but still it is white UI and that is not common for Samsung phones...oh yea and the blacks are deep on the startscreen so it may well be AMOLED but if it is the whites are great

i used the galaxy s3 for just over 4 months. then I sold it cause i really became sick of it's annoying design. although it looked fine at first, but after using it for quite some time I really started to hate the design and build of the gs3. i was expecting a lot from the galaxy s4. an unique design & aluminium build especially. but these looks to be the real gs4's shots! looking at those pics, man........! :( :( :(
fine Samsung. you go your own way then. i'll go with the 64gb white HTC One....
