    I have been nothing but thrilled with my Galaxy S2, perhaps if it's a big enough improvement I will upgrade. The Galaxy S3 just felt like a Galaxy S2 HD to me and wasn't worth it.

    I felt the S3 was the biggest leap forward yet, I have had the S1 and S2 before it and I felt the S2 was a much smaller step from the S1 when compared to the S3 from S2. In any case I am excited to see what they do with the S4.

    I have also used all three galaxy S series handsets, and thought about them the same way you have. The leap from S2 to S3 was just amazing, and I look forward to what improvements there will be on the S4. Howevever, I am dismayed that updates for these handsets are so rapid. It has only been months since the release of the S3, but already the S4? I don't regret having bought my S3, but it just seems... unfair... for some reason :(
  5. I am sure there are plenty of people who feel a new phone from Apple is too often and a whole bunch more that were bummed that iPhone 5 came out a few months after the iPhone 4s.

    This is inevitable in today's fast paced technology. It's all a matter of finding a time to strike, and understanding when that is that will best make you happy.

    My AT&T contract will be up just in time for the S4 (kind of guessing). I've had an S1 and S2 as well, and I'm skipping the S3. I am very satisfied with the S2, and except for it being available in other colors, I have managed (purposefully) to stay, for the most part, ignorant to it's increased specs or features.

    In doing this, I hope that the S4 will be able to ride for about 2 years and keep me satisfied, because I plan to be one of the few to have it first.

    The chip is called a Exynos 5450, not a 5400....
