Samsung Galaxy s4

Just watched the full stream of the unveil. Talk about a phone that does it all. Hope they put up a specs sheet cuz there is no way to easily type out all the features it has. Went on for over a half hour just on features alone.

Figures, my phone died two weeks ago and I had to get an SIII. I was trying to hold out for this.

I am hoping for a solid launch and good market penetration - It will only cause other Mfgs to step it up too - It goes in cycles and they all have their turn and we benefit from it

I was wondering when this thread would start. Too bad I have another year on my SIII, but my GF is ready for a new phone. Good thing I still like it.

Yep, time for me to upgrade. I'm still on the EVO I got 3 years ago this month. I was looking at the Note 2, but I think the S4 will probably suit me better.

Now, I just need to figure out how to get one before they sell out!

hopefully it doesn't feel like a cheap ass phone like the S3 does. I do like the S3 though, rocking that AOKP 4.2.2 Jellybean! Design looks little better, but not much change other than bezel. And a bigger screen? Fawk, we are starting to go back in time now... Looks like they just grabbed the Note2 and made it smaller and slapped a "redesigned" S3 body. Would have loved to wait until the S4 but Black Friday had it for fiddy dolla's mane, sheeeeit

The video chat feature looks cool. I wonder how it compares to Apple facetime? I know a bunch of people buying Apple for that single feature.

I had the S3 for about 2 days and hated it. I wanted to throw it against the wall. How you people use android OS is beyond me, it's so damn glitchy.
All those stupid "hand motions" are fucking retarded. I'm not going to sit here and do this and that with my hands to get my phone to respond when I can just touch the fucking screen. People eat up all this shit and don't use half the features.
Everytime I've tried an android tablet or phone it goes right back to the store.

Love FaceTime and use it everyday - I liked what I saw in that Vid of "Group" Vid Chat and would love to see that incorporated soon - Great idea and what I meant by saying I like technology driving advancements

I got S3 to replace my EVO. Phone works great especially when you have MHL cable bluetooth keyboard and mouse, basically you can use it as a mini PC.
That new one seams cool, I hope Samsung will add couple of software features from S4 to S3. The only thing what I don't like it is the battery life on Jelly Bean, battery life was much better on Ice Cream.
For me there is no reason to upgrade, I'm still waiting for iPhone 10

Mostly its just software changes. But a bigger battery, quad core cpu, slightly bigger screen, and new s health options are enough for me to use that as my upgrade.

It's probably because the software Samsung puts on the S3 sucks. That's why you flash a different ROM. With a steady ROM things are actually ALMOST as good as a jail broken iPhone. Powerful if you know what to do with the device

Yep, heard some people got them Friday. However if you have Sprint, get in line. There is a delay even for the pre-orders. Looks like Sprint did not exect such a demand. Guy at work was suppose to get his via Sprint/Best Buy yesterday but instead got an email saying that they are short and to expect delivery May 9-22.
Believe T-mobile and AT&T have them at store level and online but you may want to call first.

I'm still thinking about getting one...but then every time I mention it, people are like "oh, the G5 is coming out really soon".

Really? Or is that just idle gossip?
