720p display?

Way to swing for the fences with this, Samsung.
Its still better than the screen on the iPhone. So, is an HD screen not important, or are you admitting Apple cheaped out on a part?

People don't need a thinner phone. They need better battery life

People don't need a thinner phone. They need better battery life. Seriously, who the f cares how thin their phone is?

I would love to see someone perform a test to see if people really notice a 1mm, 2mm, or even 5mm difference in thickness.

Know what people do notice? The bulk of keeping a charger with them. They notice ensuring that they are within 3' of an outlet when they leave home. They notice that morning when they realized they forgot to put their phone on the charger the night before. THAT'S the kind of stuff they notice, but it doesn't generate the OOooohs and AAAAAaaahs in tech demos when the slobbering tech media reviews the prototype..

When manufacturers improve the performance of a battery they shrink the thing so...
I agree, the ridiculous thing is that if took today's battery and put it into a phone as thick as what was on the market as recently as 2009, we'd have smartphones that could go 2-3 days between charges, even with heavy usage, rather than charging 2-3...

It's like an improved iPhone

No microSD card support? I'm disappointed, Samsung.
Well, at least it has a removable battery, right?
-Said noone ever.
