    I think my husband will be wanting this. My contracts up in August so probably get this for him then, then he can get me the Note 3 (assuming that comes out before his contract is up in December).

    He wasn't to impressed with the S3 (loads of people he knew had problems with the S3, and a couple said it broke to easily), he has a small crack on his S2 at the top so he needs an upgrade soon me thinks.

    I'll keep my eye on this for him...

    To be honest I don't think you'll be impressed then, as the S3 is a very good phone, I'm going to guess Apple has it's hooks in too deep with you :D

    Horrible??

    Looks better than any of the Galaxy phones I've seen or had, think HTC One looks fabulous, this is just the wider brother of the HTC.

    Would actually make the jump if the design is anywhere near this photoshop.

    it be a miracle if samsung made a mobile from a aluminium or a glass body rather than their cheap plastic body.

    That pic of the S4 looks good imo.

    I would buy it if it looked like that and wasn't plastic. Aluminium construction with flat back please.

    Samsung appears to have upped the game looking at those specs and features. Makes the Sony Z and HTC one look like yesterday's phone.

    If this is indeed released on 14th Mar, Apple really need to bring out an IPhone 6 rather than their IPhone 5s. They really will fall behind if their proper new phone takes another 18months to be released.

    The only thing is if its going to have a ridiculously small bezzle, which looks great from a looks point of view, but is sadly crap from a usability point of view, as you'll be pressing things by accident all the time just by picking it up. It already happens now with my Note 2, any thinner, and it'll be extremely irritating.

    with a phone this big it probably wont be an issue, but they do need to put the power button at the top. On the S2 it is on the side, and the natural holding position means you accidentally keep pressing it all the time

    The Ativ S I'm currently using has the power button a bit higher up on the right edge. I think that may be a better way to go, allowing locking and unlocking without changing grip yet unlikely to accidentally hit it. I found having the button on top with our HTC One a little hard work, Apple can get away with it as their handset is so small.

    Smart scroll - another gimmick that nobody will use after showing it off to their mates, just like all that gesture based crap that nobody uses on the S3 and Note 2.

    I was never an apple fan i used to hate the whole sync to put music on and the boring app interface,it was only when i dropped on an iphone 4 at the right price that i started liking them before that i was androd all the way...i went to the s3 thinking a high end phone will be superb quad core and all that however I was just a bit disappointed in it I actually preferred the sII,spec wise it should have been very good.....but it just never felt smooth and refined i found it very brash and buggy pretty quick

    plus it was too wide it wasd alright for the first day or two then it just annoyed me and had so many useless features on....i spent half the time disabling things and tweaking to try and get it to run better,it wasnt terrible but something didnt feel quite right

    i thought the screen was nicer on the sII as well the 3 display looked a bit cheap to my eye
