    Hmmm... Poor and outdated design, plastic, wtf pen tile, touch wiz still blows, exynos chip hard to develop for. Should I keep going?

    You realize it will have a snapdragon chipset right?

    Everyone? The display is the device for all intents and purposes. People like the feel of quality materials not cheap plasticky devices with flimsy poorly fitting buttons. Makes sense.
    Would you want a car that is cheap and plasticky or one that is well made?
    Agree that fitting the 5 inch display into the existing chassis is nice.
    Hmmm... Ill take the plastic one.. ;-)

    Yeah this thread has gone to hell. I think in hindsight what turned me off was the terrible presentation, I mean actors really? But now that I read about it more it's definitely better than the s3 and more has changed than it might appear.

    Both the one and s4 are impressive but I won't be buying either, as I'm completely content with my Nexus 4. Actually okay come October when I'm upgrade eligible, I might. Definitely wouldn't mind a nice backup phone vs the htc vivid I have now!

    Unlike a car, you can put a case on the phone if u don't like the way it feels

    If only my Infuse or Note 2 was cheap, flimsy, and with poor fitting buttons. If you want to feel some actual cheap plastic go check out some of those dollar store cases people love putting their phones in.

    By October we should not only be holding X Phones, but also have 90% of the details on the Nexus 5.

    My upgrade is a logical one, I hate the Lumia 920, but love WP8 even though Microsoft hinders devices with it. The Ativ S didnt come out in the US, and I have an upgrade... Might as well get the S4!

    I was thinking about trying out the lumina 920 but i think id hate wp8. It would be a massive downgrade from my note 2. I just like to try new stuff out from time to time.

    I believe everyone feels Samsung was lazy. They pulled an Apple by not doing what people expect from Android manufacturers, and make something new and cutting edge not just for software but hardware as well. Also a lot of tech journalist and Android fans alike are mad that Samsung pretty much dissed Google by not even mentioning them. Finally a lot of the features seem gimmicky.

    I find it humorous, ignorant and hypocritical when people keep throwing the word "innovation" around when talking about what they want mobile companies to do with future smartphones, but it's mostly only when Samsung tries new things (and they do more than any other company, except for maybe HTC) that people always refer to them as gimmicks without even trying them out.

    Totally understand. I'm just telling the op the feeling I'm getting and what I'm reading from around the community.

    And that's what I say to the community: quit being ignorant, and quit asking for innovation and then pass off all of Samsung's efforts at doing something new as gimmicky just cause it's Samsung (which most people do), especially when the only device that can do those things isn't even out yet.

    I guess. Doesn't really matter what the community thinks they aren't the ones pushing sales anyway.

    If they're gonna play stupid, then no it doesn't matter what they think. I've just lost about 98% of my faith in the masses over the last few years. Anyway, moving on.

    I would jump ship to wp8 in a heartbeat if they fixed a few things that would bother me too much because it's a damn fast OS and I kinda like the whole UI appearance, the MS ecosystem. But the notification system is far poorer than jelly bean's and using Xbox music to manage music sucks terribly. No file management either.

    I only put pictures to the analogy already posted, showing it in light of my favor...

    I'm not sure it's in their best interest to push Google... HTC and Sammy both make WP8 devices too. I'd love for them to come out from a philosophical standpoint arguing the merits of Android and their interpretation of it being expounded upon by improvements to Google's genius... but that makes them sound like they stand on the shoulders of giants, rather than at peer level.

    And once again, another statistic that doesnt mean anything. From all the videos I have seen, I have noticed lag. Im just hoping it was pre release software causing it. Now I will say this, with a custom ROM, the s4 is going to FLY.
