Then there are those there are vegged out staring at their phones 90% of the day. I guess it appeals to them.

And yes, my penis has a 5" screen.

They can go fuck themselves with a 5" screen size, I didn't buy the S3 just because the screen size was already too big.

I had the Galaxy Nexus, and thought the S3 was too big, until I got it, You definitely get use to it, and I don't think I could go to a smaller screen. I still have my Galaxy Nexus and my 4s. The 4s feels so tiny compared the other 2 and I rarely ever use it unless it's for a remote app. It's nice with the S3 and Galaxy nexus I can just swap the sim out and change phones.

Don't get rid of your Nexus 4 for something made by Samsung.

How do you like it?

The scrolling could be cool but I wonder how well it will work when driving and such.

Finally they got their shit together on wireless charging. Its not a difficult thing to get figured out.

Hopefully its battery life is good. I won't be getting one because I wont get a phone unless it has a physical qwerty keyboard

I saw a girl walking down the street the other day with some Samsung phone ( I don't know model ) but the thing was massive and it looked hilarious. I couldn't help but laugh. It looked very uncomfortable. I personally don't like how big phones are getting. The iPhone 4-5 change was big enough. It's now a pita to text with one hand because I can't reach the top of the screen

Some information you can get from me regarding this phone is the screen will be significantly better then the SG3, depending on the US/Euro versions it' going to have a quad core with a possible octo-core option with a possible quad and then another quad virtual, or straight 8 (highly unlikely). It's said the US will get the mundane version, europeans get the best.

If they keep Jelly Bean on the phone during launch, the SG4 will be updated with Key Lime Pie (Google likes Candy, don't ask, its alphabetical as well) later on. Other then that, the guy was under contract to not tell me anything more.

I'm hoping the signal strength will be better than every other pitiful Samsung device (except the Note 2). Also, front facing speakers would be nice.

I wish companies would offer multiple screen sizes, I don't want anymore more than 4". If apple could do something like the Macbook Pro line up with a mini, normal, and large, that'd be great. Some of my friends recently purchased the GS3 specifically to avoid the S4 for that reason.

They do. There is a GS3 & GS3 Mini. There is a RAZR HD & RAZR M. They offer smaller versions, but most people want larger.

The GS3 mini is a piece of junk.

I love everything about it but the only down side are some of the apps. The major hitters like FB, twitter and other big name app are 100% identical to iOS. But other smaller 3rd party apps like CNBC RT and stocks apps suck donkey balls. Its a nice fast, light, thin, big screen'd phone. I moved from a ip4 and it blows it out of the water. Just wish the Android app store would have less junk apps and more quality one like apple. Overall you cant beat the price for a new unlocked phone imo

Thanks for your thoughts.

I don't doubt that it's better than the iPhone 4 for a second. That phone is hurting compared to the modern competition.

I love when peeps complain about the bigger sized phones. So what? get a smaller phone, its that simple...

they make phones for different people. I have big hands and fat fingers, trying to type on an iphone 5 is annoying. I dont wear tight hipster pants, so the phone fits find in my pocket. I remember, when I got the droid X, a few years back- which was verizon's biggest phone at the time. (4.3 inch) Everyone was saying it was too big. Now those same people have S3's and cant imagine going back to a smaller screen.

The droid DNA has a 5 inch screen and the phone itself is physically isnt really any bigger than the S3- so I'm all for having more screen space on my phone.

I dont expect the S4 to really be any bigger...

bmwti, the problem is that all the smaller phones are also slower and generally lower-quality.

exactly what i was going to type....

Most of the larger phones are the higher end phones. There isnt that many small high phones to choose from.
