U.K. retailer sees 40% more pre-registrations for the Samsung Galaxy S 4 than the Galaxy S III

Phones 4U is predicting that the Samsung Galaxy S 4 could be the top selling smartphone for the year which would be quite a feather in the cap for the Korean manufacturer. Could you have imagined something replacing the Apple iPhone in that capacity just a few years ago? Meanwhile, U.K. retailer EE has also been impressed at the amount of interest for the Samsung Galaxy S 4. Paul Jevons, Director of Products and Devices at EE, said that demand for information about the phone from businesses and consumers has almost reached "fever-pitch levels".

- Battery 2600 mAh(17h 3G talk time)

between the 3 of the flasgships this year, overall is the best IMHO....loses on the design department for the 2, for sure, but I think, overall specs, display and features, makes up for the design..the design is not spectacular, but a 5inch display on a frame of that size? still "small"and its thinner thans the S3, there's also the new fish finish, dots, i dont know what pattern it is, kind of cool, not premium....so, design acceptable and i would put a case on it anyway. Again, my humble opinion.

If you go and see it physically and play with it, you'll know its a completely different beast from Note 2 and Galaxy S3, that's what people said about Galaxy S3 when it came out...oh its ugly bla bla bla...but once they saw it physically they just couldn't resist the beauty, hence the incredible sales, now S4 will follow suit

because its just an upgrade just few new software and little hardward improvment no worth upgradeing or buying it when s5 will come out in the next coming months look at it no wow everyone will think you sill have the s3 LOL and the desgin is the same old boring and cheap looking plus the Note 3 is coming very soon so why buy it if there is a new phone in few months that has more features LOL

why is everyone pointing gs4 a slight upgrade from the s3??? oh CMON GUYS, ur just looking at d design and many of u drop conclusions by that factor only!! anyway, the design is not ugly, im starting to like it when i saw pics and hand on videos of it on android authority, it does look premium and not cheap by this time..

True, people are misled by its design. The GSIV is a whole new devices with the best hardwares available. Exynos 5 Octa(A7 + A15), new improved 1080p SuperAMOLED panel, DDR3 RAM, new 13MP camera which much better than the ip5 one.

The looks remained the same as the predecessor, the insides are pumped (on either version) I see lots of camera improvements and a bunch of crappy gimmicks along with potential useful stuff, down honest if you plan on keeping the stock experience this is a better choice in terms of software if you are looking for a premium feel then this is not the phone for you, everything else is nice... Now waiting to see if it fairs better than the S3 in terms of a drop test, yeah I'm going to put a case on that bad boy but I care for that stuff.. Also since may is a month latter after the release you might as well wait that and see if the Google I/O has a nice phone to offer Anyone else arrived to the same conclusion as I did?

i think he meant that the leaks before hand of the official release took away the wow factor its now just like any other phone nothing special when you look at the phone samsung next time should do something about the leaks.
