    It won't happen cause it doesn't need to. That's why people get POGO chargers, microUSB is great for many other things. Plus, they complain about Lightning because it meant they had to buy all new accessories for their devices, it was little more than a cash grab despite how good it is for charging.

    I don't see where having to buy new accessories ever made a difference to any makers. When Motorola went from the Razr Maxx to the Razr Maxx HD, they utterly obsoleted all the docks for the old Maxx, which cost a H*** of a lot more than a $5 charger. I had both a car and bedside dock. $80 worth of docks. Both down the toilet.

    Have you seen how much Apple accessories cost? Most Apple fans pay way more than 80 bucks for their accessories and now that's down the drain to buy the usually-overpriced Apple accessories that actually fir the new connector now.

    Yup, I have. That's one reason I dumped Apple. But the point is you can't use the argument that you can't take away peoples micro-USB because there would be an uproar. It's not the first time it's happened. I remember Blackberry going from mini to micro USB and offering a $10, 3 inch long adapter. No one said a word, or if they did it was a very quiet riot. Micro USB can and should be dumped for a more robust connector. Then THAT will become a standard and everyone will have one until someone else thinks changing connectors to another design is a good idea and there will be ANOTHER uproar. That's progress.

    And now you can get Lightening adapters and chargers for next to nothing. It took about seconds to rip it off and sell them for pennies on the dollar. Apple prices are inflated anyway.

    Torches and pitchforks! I'm telling you! It has to be done.

    That's an understatement. And the argument can be made, not cause it's a good one but because it would happen for sure. People don't like change when it comes to certain things but demand it for others. It's kinda weird.

    I personally have no problem with micro usb and wouldn't be happy if they changed it. I also don't think a new standard is coming, in Europe they're trying to not even send phones with chargers anymore.

    I hope SAMSUNG R&D would look here for end-user's feedback. I would not like the new Samsung Galaxy (S-IV) to not have an FM transmitter in it, and I would certainly not like it if they did not offer a separate option of having a regular (one-sim) or dual-sim phone. Moreover, it would be awful if the round corners are forgotten (as I have seen a sample concept picture of s4). The round corners are quite handy in different kinds of pockets. I would not like the new S4 to have a tiny memory of 16GB., it should be more like 64 GB or even more.

    I hope they are going to change the touchwiz look, there are too many discrepancies. Whereas for the physical home button i dont really need a change, if theyre going to put them on screen, even thou sometimes i miss the free corner on the low right side to hold the phone without exit the app i m using. But except the US version of S2 (dont remember S1) Samsung has always had a physical home button plus 2 touch keys, and i think its going to keep in that direction. Would be nice to have better materials, but not if it means a solded battery. Form factor: if leaked images are true, it seems to go back to S2 which i like more, s3 is slippery like a soap and for me unusable without cover. I really hope they will go with a non pentile non amoled display. Black is gorgeous, but i still prefer the iPhone, or HTC displays (of the last generations)

    I would be shocked and disappointed if Sammy was not monitoring sites like this. I have intimate knowldge of other large corporations that have dedicated departments to monitor twitter and other social networking sites. They do this to keep a pulse on things, and even to stop theft.
    Don't try this at home! Mention a Fortune 100 company in a tweet, and suggest performing a non-violent illegal act at a specific location. It would be like swatting, corporate style.

    Agree with all the stuff about plastic bodies. My S2 feels cheap. Maybe they can switch it up in terms of design by using brushed plastics around the edges and having the back and front be aluminium? We know that dropping a phone on its corners is where the most impact happens so the plastic edges/corners could absorb impact without denting like aluminium. And the metal back would feel more quality in hand. The thing about the plastic being brushed or textured is just to stop this gross slippery cheap feel. Then again I'm no expert so it's probably safe to ignore me. I'm fine with touch wiz, it's just ugly. I'm okay with physical home button too but I would like to see a reduced bezel. If the S4 can have a 5inch screen but not feel like 7 inches in hand, that would be freaking nice.

    As well as look noticeably better. Glad they're making the switch. Samsung make's the iPhone's LCDs; it'll be a great screen, and better than an HD SAMOLED would've been.

    IF they make the switch it is only for this phone while they tweak the OLED technology. There is a reason samsung is spending millions on building more OLED manufacturing plants. It's a superior technology its just still developing.

    I would hate to see a fixed battery. The removable battery on the s3, is the reason I chose the s3, and will be the deciding factor on which phone I use.

    NO NON REPLACEABLE BATTERY unless of course they can guarantee 12 hours of actual use on a single charge

    No lack of memory card slot

    What is getting me away from HTC offerings is their lack of removable battery and no micro SD card provisions. For the S4 to go that way would be most upsetting. I got my wife an S3. She loves it. My upgrade comes in June, so I've been looking forward to the S$.
