Anybody watching Samsung Galaxy S4 launch?

So far some cool stuff.. nothing that is insanely cool so far but a ton of somewhat cool stuff...
  • 441 ppi screen
  • dual camera videos.. record from front/back cameras at same time
  • sound enabled pics
  • CRAZY FAST LTE (useless since carriers can't handle it)
  • Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi a b g n ac, and IR LED and MHL 2.0
  • 2GB of LPDDR Ram with 16GB of space. A 32 and 64 option is available, and it is expandable via SD Micro by 64GB
  • 2,600 mAh battery that's removable
  • S-Translator can handle nine language. It can handle speech to text and text to speech

More stuff coming...

This presentation is just awful! It's like a grade school skit.

I know it's supposed to have the automatic scrolling feature.

The auto scroll feature wasn't as impressive as it should be.. it pauses when you look away but doesn't track eyes to scroll.. you have to lean phone front or back to scroll.

The presentation for all of this was painful to watch.

Lot's of small to medium cool things but NOTHING that was SUPER WOW.

Was there anything that would justify the cost of an S4 over an S3? Starting to look at phones, and was thinking that if the S3 dropped in price when the S4 rolls around, that would be a good deal.

I believe Amazon already dropped the S3 to a penny with a new contract. With a renewal, I think it's $99.

Depends... The overall specs are better but nothing that makes it a MUST HAVE... so you need to determine if one of the other features is worth it.

The only thing that I would have to consider is the IR blaster which would let me use the phone as a universal remote. I'd find that convenient and could also wreak some havoc at bars...

It is amazing to me the number of people across the internet who seem disappointed because it looks similar to the S3. I have to admit I had no idea "style" was so important to so many people. Yeah you want it to look sleek, but really...

8-Core 1.6GHz (or 4-Core 1.9 depending on region) & 13 megapixel camera. Those 2 things alone will make it a beast of a phone.
