    I was disappointed when I saw the specs on this and the Droids. I wanted 1080P and the latest quad core CPU, but price? I didn't even think there was a reason to price it less than $199 on contract. I'm probably going to get a Maxx, and that's $299 on contract. Not really happy about that, but I'll probably wait until there is a good deal somewhere. I noticed Newegg seems to have better deals than going directly through VZ. As far as the specs go, I can't say that the GS4 really impressed me all that much when I tried it out. I'm an IT professional, and I can tell you that cutting edge does not always translate into the best experience. I buy a device to perform functions and solve problems. I want it to do that as efficiently as possible. I don't care if it is slower on a benchmark. I do care if it is slower in actual use. Having said that, my biggest concern is the one that cannot be addressed by anything but speculation. How will this device perform in a year? What I am left with is making an educated guess on which will be better FOR ME in a year, the X8 architecture, or the quad core CPU in the One? That answer will not even be the same for everyone.

    Well I was expecting a quad core and 1080 p display....of course was kinda letdown

    But I'd be lying if I said was ALSO expecting 8 cores in the CPU that work together under a unique architecture and TWENTY FOUR hours battery life.
