Screen size is between 4/4.3" 2. Non-Pentile S AMOLED Plus screen 3. It can shed the 'plasticky / cheap' image of previous Galaxy line Lastly, the likes of Samsung + LG + HTC etc. have wrongly shifted focus from 'software' side of things to hardware. Only Apple seems to have better focus on software side of things, with ambition to provide a more 'compelling' user experience.That is why iOS is still a better platform compared to android. Hence, It will be prudent if someone else (may be MS*) does follow Apple in this regard. As example of Lumias vs various dual core droids clearly shows that single core SoCs provides great performance provided the resources are used 'efficiently'. * MS provides 5/10 years service for its enterprise/OS etc. solutions, so 3 years service a mobile device seems reasonable point to start with.
