    I get the sensation that a lot of people (not everyone) are choosing not to buy this phone because they already use an awesome phone that came out last year. To me it's all about the specs, and right now, nothing comes close to the power the GS4 brings in the same size. So coming from my RAZR, this is gonna feel like a tremendous jump. I do find it odd though that so many are upset with a phone that nearly doubled its potential from the previous year's device in a slimmer frame? I mean I was kind of hoping it would make ice cream for me too, but I think this will still do and just hope the GS6 can serve me a sugar cone with chocolate and sprinkles lol.

    On another note.. I don't really get the whole plastic/aluminum argument. I mean that sincerely, is there some kind of function that the aluminum provides that is superior to plastic or is this a preference thing? If anyone could shed some light on that, I would really appreciate it actually, because it may sway my decision. But the argument I keep seeing is "My hands need the feel of aluminum" and to me it's like, I can get the same sensation from holding a can of soda...and that never makes me feel superior--why would I feel supeior if my phone was wrapped in the same material that Mr. Pib uses to bring sugar to my belly? Just food for thought. Cheers!

    Edit: I guess there has to be some function on how aluminum transfers heat--is this the argument? Sorry I was cooking something in the oven with aluminum foil and it dawned on me.

    ill admit im disappointed it looks like the leaked photos. BUT im a sammy nut and i know ill at least buy to try it out. few questions.

    will the US get the octa cpu or not? NO the octa will not have LTE either
    will the international version support at&t lte bands or not? will support ATT 3g but not LTE
    will the international version ship sooner than us in the US? YES

    I'll have several upgrades coming up (wife and I) in June, so I'll decide then (although if the note 3 has been announced and not super huge, I might consider that) . Personally I like the GS4 and some of the software features such as the built in exercise tracking, etc... and could care less what it's made out of. I typically throw on a lightweight case anyways because I find phones that are to thin hard to hold (my opinion only).

    I like it. I'd be tempted if I didn't have my note 2. It could be the perfect size. My note is fantastic but could be smaller lol

    well xda now has a s4 section and im not seeing any familiar devs posting there. i think alot of them will either stay on the s3 / note 2 or go to the htc one. myself im getting the dev edition one to play with until the s4 releases and i see more reviews. i still may buy it but as of now im not really interested.

    for the love of god does anyone know if the overseas version will ship sooner and if the LTE bands will work here? i think some of us would like to know this. seems to me sammy said this phone will support alot of different radio bands and LTE.
    I don't know if the International version will ship sooner. But the chipset in the International version does NOT support LTE. Its HSPA+ bands will work on AT&T as well as T-mobile here.
