a new smartphone will soon be out. It is almost time for all the Apple fanboys to blast it with negative reviews and tell us why their I phone is so much better, even though the specs blow it away.

for the Android fanboys excited over a phone. It's time for Android fanboys to get all wet over specs when it's just a phone. Rolling Eyes

for the Blackberry fans to say how android phones are not secure, and how the new Z10 blows away every android device with its new "screen share" tech.

1.9ghz quad- core, 441ppi, heck, the IPhone still doesn't even have NFC, does it even have Wi-Fi Direct?

Damn, the IPhone sure does evolve slowly!

A couple of months ago I bought a 64GB card on Amazon for only $46.99, awesome price for a 64GB card!

I'm coming from the Samsung Droid Charge, so this is gonna be a really big upgrade for me, I still haven't gotten to experience dual or quad core processors, 2gigs of RAM, the newest version of Android, all kinds of stuff on the S4 will be a whole new experience for me.

Some people like to say the S4 isn't that much of a jump from the S3, likely if you have the S3 you are happy and have no desire to upgrade, but for someone like me

I wished a top-the-line Samsung device had the quality feel of HTC's One...
Samsung's software is far superior I have to recognize. Much of the functionality from the Note II will be present on the GS4, it will be a killer device for sure. (I've not used the S4, just the Note II)

About the big screen... I used to think that big screened devices were a bit awkward to use, but since I got my HTC Inspire 4g a couple of years ago and used it for long, I got used to big phones. A few days ago I played a little bit with the HTC One and actually I just found out that It was a lot more comfortable to use than my old Inspire 4g. Fortunately my hands are big.
The software on the One didn't convince me though. I liked better that one on the earlie...

Can you be specific about what isn't comfortable about holding the GS3?

So yesterday I drove from Derby to West Hartford and everywhere in between testing T-Mobile's network here in Connecticut, all along the Berlin Turnpike the signal is strong, where I live at the signal is strong, I even went to where I work at,
watched an 8m long YouTube vid in HQ, it played without buffering, but where I work at is a weak signal area, even for Verizon, signal constantly drifts in & out of 3G/4G, I thought T-Mobile's HSPA 21/42 is faster than Verizon's crappy EVDO, plus later this year, like Hartford and surrounding towns will have LTE,. . .I do have a little hesitation though, I am aware Verizon's network is larger. I'm all about data, data, data...

The Galaxy S III is a very comfortable device to use. I didn't like the feel of it because of the materials, slippery plastics (they say polycarbonate but doesn't feel much as the one X or recent Nokias) the battery cover is very "flimsy" as Eric describes it. I don't like the too oval-ish shape of the phone (It looks like someone cut a slice from a bar of soap).
The phone is thin and light, rests well in your hand and the software is great, as you said it has great reception capabilities. I guess that's an advantage of having an all plastic body.

Just to clarify, I didn't try to say that the S III is uncomfortable to use, just that it feels a bit cheap and fragile (it is fragile indeed). If you ever held an Iphone 5 or HTC one you just ...

That link doesn't show a thing...
However, I was also thinking about a case for the s4, it wouldn't add too much bulk to your pocket with a phone this thin.
have you considered getting an smart cover?

if you're talking about the Smart Cover I think you are I'm not going to pay $60 for that.

so are you shopping for a case for me lol or are you getting S4 too?

I'm hunting for a One or Butterfly (international version of the droid DNA)

I just love the feel of the One, so dense, smooth, perfectly curved. Beautiful.
The droid DNA feels tougher, and I like the old user interface on it (Sense 4+, Sense 5 is available) and smart actions. The weight's the same.. I like a lot the rubber-like feel of it's back, even if it looks a bit cheap it made me feel more confident of my grip even when the phone's shape is a bit odd.

It will all depend on their availability and my budget of course

About the smart cover:
Yeah, I think that $60 is a little to expensive Sad
I was just curious about it, but I don't think it's limited added functionality will justify the price

Even $50 is way, way too much. I wonder if people in numbers will actually pay that crazy price???

I I pre ordered a desktop charger that comes with a 2600 OEM battery that is Samsung branded, that costs $50!!!!! I wasn't happy about that price, but a spare battery and desktop charger is something I absolutely have to have, it doesn't come out til May 1, on Amazon.

Dude, that us so funny, you talk about your phone as if it's a hot seXy woman, lol!!!

Of course I do!
It's meant to have contact with one of the most sensitive parts of my anatomy (talking about my hands and fingertips Laughing ) and kiss me each time I answer a call. It will know my secrets plus it will witness more than one of my compromising adventures with it's bigger eye.

I take it seriously and need my adventure partner to be sexy and badass.

Even though the S4 has a slighly larger screen, the overall dimensions are smaller. Maybe Samsung realizes not everybody wants a ginormous phone.

5.38 x 2.75 x 0.31 inches
136.6 x 69.8 x 7.9 mm
