    27% improvement in efficiency from just new materials and internal improvements. Impressive.

    Too bad the S5 is plagued with a hideous back :(.

    Yet another reason why we're all waiting for OLED TVs to be affordable before buying another one.

    Regarding the infinite contrast ratio... Does that mean the blacks are infinitely dark and the whites are infinitely white? Reminds me of a black T-shirt my brother used to have.. it said 'I'm only wearing black until they make something darker.' Looks like Samsung did!

    That's subjective JC. The rear cover is just simply dimpled, it's not 'WOW' neither is it 'YUCK' and it won't offend the majority of buyers. Personally speaking I'm much more interested in the S5 Mini than this one.

    That's more interesting to me as well. Ever since the s3, the whole line has been far too big for my taste. The power efficiency gains are still really exciting though.
  7. I guess to each his/her own; seeing how I'm more interested in the, soon to be, Note 4. :)

    Honestly the screen on the S4 is beautiful. No need to go bigger right now. What good however does a screen do when you have bluetooth that is flaky as ever, the phone is so thin you sneeze and the screen wants to break, the speaker is terrible which I doubt they have fixed, data corruption issues with SD cards from even Samsung, etc. This list could go on. I paid full price for my S4 so that I could stay on my grandfathered unlimited plans with VZW and about the only good it has done me is save a heap on data charges. I do however have all kinds of issues otherwise that frustrates me so badly that I want to flush the darn thing down a toilet many days. I doubt as I said that Samsung has resolved the problems.
  9. How is the S4 beautiful. It looks like any other phone.
