    Default Galaxy s IV romored to have a bigger screen. Happy?

    Are you happy that it is going to have a bigger screen or do you like the screen size of the current phone? I prefer the screen size we already have. I do not know if I want to go bigger. Thoughts?
    How do we know we are not brains in a V.A T.S ?

    it's all about the size of the bezel in my opinion. I wouldn't really want the phone to be larger than the s3, but if they can squeeze in more screen with less bezel then I say go for it.

    Is it supposed to be bigger than the Note2 or something inbetween the S3 and N2?

    4.99" is what I've heard so far.

    Samsung and LG both have 4.99 inch displays that can now do 1920x1080, so that is what we will see as the "typical" flagship phones from all the phone makers in 2013, so that is a given. We MIGHT see bigger, but if the S4 goes with this display but goes with the 8-core CPU, that might be very interesting.

    Wow! That'd really be Skookum!

    I wouldn't want any larger; the current size is max enough for my druthers; if I had wanted a larger display I would have gone with the Note.
    Besides, coming from iPhones, the GS3 still feels awkward & too large to me after three months of use.

    You won't even notice the difference.

    . 2 is nothing. It might e en be the same size phone. Get rid of the home button and shrink the buttons down a bit and there you go. Don't say get onscreen buttons because then you are giving back any gain.

    I just want that wrap around screen

    I just want one that I can say "turn the heat up 2 degrees and bring me a cup of coffee" and it does. I'll be good.

    I wouldn't be worried over the negkible difference, but I'd be worried about battery consumption. My S3s screen gulps down battery despite being on the auto/dimmest setting.

    Well you guys have something weird I have everything on full tilt and get 12-14.

    Either way I don't want to get off topic. The s4 should get into the 16-18 range I would guess if the tech they showed at CES is in there

    At this point I'm wondering, how much more can they do?? Saw Nokia is doing a 3D printing capability for people that have 3D printers so they can print themselves a new battery cover. That's about the coolest thing I've heard of in a while. Now I want a 3D printer and a 3D printing app. That's pretty close to a Star Trek replicator, minus making food.

    From my experience on my DNA, auto brightness actually uses more battery. I just set the screen to dim and leave it be.

    I agree, as do many, many experts..don't use the auto-brightness. I missed that part as did a couple others on this thread, cause I know they know not to use this lol

    They are expensive as hell and tough to program, but yeah they are cool. In about 10 years they will be totally practical. Maybe less.

    Durability will be the key. You can print a gun, but it will only fire once (it is still plastic after all).

    You know there is going to be an edible element in there sooner or later....

    I have always gone full tilt with bright, sync, and whatever. There is no point to having a smartphone if you have to baby it
