the only thing people should be complaining about this phone should be the fact that it is simply too big and way too powerful. There's no reason for people to say that its a bad phone in any way. If you look at the market today there really isnt a phone that comes close to the tech that they put into making the gs4. As for the phone looking the same as the gs3 and note? Look at apples products. The fact is this phone is perfect for any one who wants a big phone with a lot of power and features. But alas Haters gunna hate....like they always do. If your a fan of an iphone your gunna hate this phone but if you like any ol android your gunna want this phone or the HTC ONE. Also i work for ATT as a sales men for phones and i do alot of research... (continues)
About comments that it looks too much like the S3, likely those who have the S3 have no intentions or desires to upgrade to the S4 because their happy with their S3, I'm coming from a slightly older than 2y/o Samsung Droid Charge, so the S4 is a really, really big jump in specs,... and in user experience. It all just depends what your current smartphone is.
And regarding the size, I do prefer 4.3-4.5in screen.
But I sure am looking forward to seeing what videos look like on that fabulous 1080p 5in screen.
