Samsung Galaxy S4 release date, news and rumours

TechRadar - It certainly feels like Samsung is taking over the world right now – at least, the Android world. There's no doubt that last year's Galaxy S2 was arguably the phone of the year.

And not in recent times, discounting Apple of course, can we remember the anticipation and expectation of a phone as much as the Galaxy S3. (Phones, Samsung Galaxy S 4G)

I love my S III but I swear to Christ it's like I got this thing Day one as soon as the place opened and then Samsung was like...

"GAIZ WE HAZ GALAXEE S XVII COMEEN!"

Yeah, they're getting about as bad as Apple on releasing them yearly. haha Oh well, though. You'll always have your rich and spoiled kids/people who will buy them up, even though they bought a new phone only like 6 months ago.

I have an iPhone 4s and really badly want the 5 but I'm going to wait until the 5s next year cause that's when my contract will be up (June '13) and I'll be able to upgrade for way less.

The Galaxy S3 is a very nice phone and I'm sure the S4 will be too, but I'm an Apple guy. I've invested in the Apple ecosystem and it'll take an extremely awesome phone to sway me away. All the Apps, Music, Movies, and TV Shows I've bought on the iTunes Store (and gotten free digital copies of movies from BluRay movies) probably are worth hundreds if not a couple thousand dollars in value. Most of my library consists of DRM-free MP3 songs, though, so a move to Android is not completely out of the question in the future. I do tend to buy all my music through iTunes nowadays though. It's just much nicer to use than Amazon or other MP3 providers.

I think yearly updates are OK but I think upgrading or buying a new phone yearly is a bit much.

I think it's better to get a new phone every other year that way it's actually more of an upgrade over your previous one. This works out for most since a lot of contracts these days are 24 month contracts.

I have an S2 and haven't jumped on the S3 even though the phone is quite a big step up. Instead, I'm getting the S4 which will be much more worthwhile since it'll most likely blow everything else out of the water. I just wish Samsung would create a phone that actually feels like it's good quality.

Ya, 100% agree man. I had the Galaxy S and skipped the S II in favor of waiting for the S III.

Yeah, the one thing Apple DOES do right is their build quality and quality of materials used. Their workmanship on the iPhone 5 is pretty dang good.

Samsung needs to ditch the plasticky phones in lieu of ones made of better materials.

"But then again, that's not Samsung's way really, is it? We want to see bigger, bangier and faster, so doubling it again to an OCTO-core would be the way to go."

What are users processing that they need these powerful chips? lolol

uh file shares i.e videos, pictures, word docs., music, 3d game streaming, and not to mention multiple ui functions that coincide with other ui's, for that it requires a smoother experience, as technology becomes more and more adamant and sophisticated along comes the many power hungry applications and behind it user usage.

samsung is genuis and they are thinking logically better than apple

but I can stream 1080p just fine on a quad core, not to mention all those other apps... why do I need 8 cores? Gaming maybe, but there are no apps out there that require such power. The only thing 8 cores is gonna do is shred battery life.
