    I agree. It seems very nice. But what feature is it that makes it a must have? I hate when people say iphone/Android sucks and the other one is better but don't mention specific features. They listed some nice things but I would never use the dual camera, would never want sound for a still pic, and would take forever to watch a video if it stopped every time I looked away (and that is assuming there aren't a bunch of false reads making videos stop when they shouldn't like just because I blinked or reached up to pick my nose).

    Even though it doesn't stand out that much to me and definitely doesn't scream innovation, I'm not going to slam it because it does make gradual improvements. Everyone wants the huges updates from these phones but that isn't how the technology curve works. If the iPhone 5S allows you to time travel 20 years in the past, and the iPhone 6 allows you to travel 50 years in the past people will say the 6 has no new innovation despite the fact that the maker developed the game changer that everyone now copies.

    I feel apple is happy to have samesung launch its phone before them. Now they can say " oh, is that all they did? Then we will drop just a lil more in the 5s and still be on top. " watch.

    After having every iPhone since the 1st and being an Apple "fanboy" for the last 20 years, I must say that there is more than competition now that HTC One and Samsung S4 have dropped.

    I decided to switch to an S3 about 2 months ago, I rooted it and ran 4.2.2 with CM10.1 ROM. I can honestly say that I respect the Android platform a whole lot more. I'm currently back on a 4S because of the "craftsmanship" of the S3 (screen separation), but I will be jumping on a Nexus 4 or HTC One the minute I sell this new S3 I just received.

    I'm all about innovation and Samsung seems to be moving in the right direction in terms of software and upgraded hardware. But if the S4 feels anything like the S3 with its "polycarbonate" body, I'll just have to wait until they decide to jump on the aluminum bandwagon. Nice new features, but nothing to drool over, plus the HTC One seems a little more premium.

    I guess we'll have to wait and see what Apple does later this year... Hopefully they get the hint and give us something to be excited about again.

    How much does this cost anyway?
    it's free and I don't have meetings so I can't really use the app. But it runs fine on my DNA.

    Probably an S2 which was complete ****.
    Galaxy Note 2 = most dominant phone on the market!
    Oh yeah doesn't the S4 also have like a built in HR monitor, BP monitor, and some other health ****?
    It also has a Barometer (awesome for altitude =D)

    You can't use a barometer to measure altitude. Weather has a huge effect on barometric pressure so your readings from one point would change constantly.

    Wow, will people who make stupid comments about size actually do some research before speaking?

    Apparently iPhone 5 must be approaching iPad mini category, since the size difference between the iPhone 5 and HTC one, which has a 4.8" screen, is less than minimal.

    I couldn't agree more. Those complaining about the 5" screen being so big, should check the specs. The size of the S4 stayed the same or shrank compared to the S3.

    Something else I've never understood. People complain about Samsung (and others) using "plastic". Yet 99% of the population that carries a phone, covers said phone in a "plastic" case....
    If I can't mod it...I don't want it.

I have an old 3.1mp Fuji that will blow the pants off any cell phone camera, problem is that it's only 4"x6" @ 300dpi for printing.

    13MP just means your storage will fill up with pictures more than 1.5x faster.
    Nice to read that you and several others actually understand how this works. First I've seen on these forums. Kudos. Funny that 70% of users actually think the quality of their phone size snapshots are improved if the MP count is 12 vs 8.
