RE: Samsung Galaxy S4

My workphone is a Samsung GT-E2600.  Its very 2004, but I charge it once a fortnight!

Whoa! You've just given me a great idea - a wristwatch that pairs with a smartphone...  :shifty:

I'm wondering just how bad some of the features are on the S4, given the painful, nauseating show rather than live demoing them.

We've added a couple of videos to our hands-on review showing Air View and Eye Scroll in action 

We were told that the software wasn't finished but the features seemed to work pretty well. Air Gesture required that you were quite deliberate and Air View seemed quite picky. I'm curious as to how Eye Scroll will work, I noticed the screen would start scrolling as you moved it around doing other things.

I don't.

It's one of the most successful kickstarters to date, cross platform and open.

RE: Samsung Galaxy S4

I'm not 100% sure the S4 is heading in the right direction. The Jedi feature for scrolling was done on a mid range Sony phone last and everyone through the reviews said it was more of a gimmick and not something you would use all the time. The Jedi eye thing, I spend a lot of time talking to people even when watching something it would take me hours to get through a 30 min program. 

How long will the battery last with all the extras on and the new larger 1080p screen. Battery life is a major issue with a lot of phones now, I can see it getting worse. 

I think we are getting to a point now were you no longer have a phone you can make calls, play game, send email and surf the web. It's more like you have a mini tablet that you can make a call on. 

Phone features like better battery life, a phone that looks awesome but it durable enough so you no longer need a case, charging without ever needing to plug the phone in again, a solid signal are all more important
