    Specs aside, the letdown we need to worry about is whether or not Verizon will even carry the phone.

    You know megapixels don't equal quality, right? I tell people this all the time at best buy but they still don't seem to get it...

    So far that is just rumor and hasn't been confirmed yet. I actually find it hard to believe that Samsung wouldn't have been able to work out the LTE issue with their newest chip, but I guess we shall see... I am keeping my fingers crossed that the initial rumors were false on this one. :)

    Yes... Arkbird has this right. I have seen pictures from a 5 Megapixel LG phone camera look better than those from the 8MP camera on the RAZR. High Megapixels only creates super-hi res pictures, but that only makes a difference if you are going to display or print a picture on a billboard. It's all about the optics baby. ;)

    I'm picking one up regardless of processor. The S4 is no slouch. This phone is sexay. :in love:

    I'll be swapping between this and my Nexus. Dual Galaxies FTW DancingNexus

    I realize about the megapixels, but I see it as an indication that they held back on making it the best. Have they even said anything about the lens?

    I don't really care about the processor as long as isn't laggy. My droid is more lag than not at this point.

    I'm just going to repost what I said on XDA as my feelings remain unchanged in the past few minutes since I made my statement:happy3:

    Well, Sony just jumped back to the top of my list for my upgrade come November. This thing has been hyped and hyped and hyped and comes out looking like total ass. It's clear that Samsung either made no effort to get input from focus groups as to what they found pleasing to the eye about the GSII and other well-rated phones, or they were tripping balls on acid when they designed the thing. From the "Made for Humans, Inspired by Nature" vid, I'm inclined to think that the latter was the case.

    HORRIBLE execution. I look at our Samsung plasma and find it hard to believe that this television and that phone are made by the same company. I hate to say it because it's one of the dumbest phrases to hit the net, but epic fail!

    It's not the processor. It's the actual LTE Chip itself that's preventing quadcore..It's too big to have that and 4 processors. That's why all European 3G quadcore phones that come this way become 4G LTE dual core phones.

    Exactly!! I was pretty pumped to see what they would bring but it's more of the same old thing htc did months ago but with with a horrible UI! I also wanted to see the vzw galaxy note

    Pentile means nothing at this point. With hd screens having ppi's as high as they are you can't see any pixelation except under a microscope. The S4 is an excellent processor.

    The pictures look nice, but the video looks cheap as hell.Doesnt really affect me though since i always get a Otterbox on my phones. I'm Kinda glad though; now i wont feel the need to update from my Galaxy Nexus. From what i know the screen is still pentile, and when looking from the One X or the Rezound it looks "meh." Hopefully the camera is awesome.
