    This is horrible. I think I've seen more cheesy acting and awkward attempts at humor than the actual phone itself...

    Agreed. It feels incredibly awkward.

    What the hell am I watching?!
    A presentation brought to you by the same marketing/pr geniuses that thought calling potential customers morons was a good idea and marketed a phone to business by showing an office of people trying to make a game about a unicorn goofing off in the office.

    So....in other words.....a disaster.

    It does seem a bit cheesy and awkward.

    But I think it's a solid job of not just telling the features but demonstrating how it could work in the real world. I like it.

    Oh god...It just won't stop! WHY WHY WHY SAMSUNG...?!?! When you try so hard at humor you will fail. This is why Apple's keynotes are the best. They don't try so hard. It is very relaxed.

    Wait til the press kills Samsung over this...

    I thought it was actually going to be in Time Square.. Would have got a ton more press if they would have just gave away 5,000 phones to random people in NYC..

    Turned it off, just horrible. There is no innovation here.

    S4 my butt...Should be S3S...Can't believe they still have S-Voice when Google Now is better.

    Yeah, it's sad. Trying to make it a big deal that NAVIGATION comes already installed!! Oh wow!! Give Google some credit, they have the best navigation system and mapping system already done. I'm not surprised by all the gimmicky features.. Did they mention what processor they are using?

    It's more of S-this and S-that. while TouchWiz still looks like it did back in Gingerbread.

    Not impressed thus far. Annoyed with this over the top presentation is a better description. I'll just tell myself the non-techies will think all of this sounds cool. :/

    All these rumors of the HTC One coming to Verizon are giving me hope... especially after this disaster of a presentation. I have the S3, but have no desire to upgrade to the same cheap feeling phone (regardless of software/internal changes).

    For what everyone is saying about the presentation, at least these guys are into it. The main guy for the BB10 presentation had a tone of voice as boring as a high school geometry teacher.

    Samsung became Americanized and was trying SOOO hard to be Apple here...
    They just don't seem to realize they don't need to try and be Apple...Especially since they don't have the charisma Apple has.

    I'm embarrassed I told my co-workers to watch this...
    I am going to get ripped apart tomorrow at work.

    Wow, the phone is great but that show was one of the worst things I have ever seen.

    Really cheesy, offensive to certain groups and about as funny as a heart attack. Jesus! How could they miss the mark so widely?
    They made no mention of any dual sim card though so I guess that isn't there. I would have thought they would have mentioned that if it had it.

    It's a S3 with a whole lot of gimmicks. The camera is nice though.

    I don't think it would have been such an EPIC fail (this is going to be HUGE media backlash) if Samsung didn't hype this.
    If they kept their mouth shut it would have been OK. But they hyped it up to be the BIGGEST THING since the wheel.

    wow... Google please save us and move on to Key Lime Pie... I truly despise Samsung's approach... Pack as many gimmicky features into cheap feeling hardware and crappy looking ui.
