Currently I'm enjoying the Samsung S3. I love it so much because its provide all your communication needs. I’m waiting to own a Samsung S4 now.
Edited by mods. See house rules.
Just read about this today, looks like it will be an apple killer.

Shame my contract with O2 ends in July 2014! Hopefully the Galaxy S5 will be out by then.
When I bought my Galaxy S3 most of the contracts available were 2 year ones. Won't most people with an S3 also be in the middle of a contract given that it came out in May last year?

I think HTC will be quite pleased.

We've added some videos of the new features to our hands-on review, Smart Scroll and Air View
Why would it be pleased? Even if it has better features, it will not automatically translate to better sales. Samsung's advertising budget is humongous and will sell much more than HTC without doubt.

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

I look forward to the head to head reviews of the S4 vs. the iPhone 5 vs. the new)HTC ONE vs. the Nexus 4
I think there are actually plus points for all of them - even the iPhone 5. And minus points.
I think the S4 has raised the bar and does have some great features and may well cause Apple problems until the 5S/6 come out....

I personally think all the flagship phones have got to the point where the hardware makes no difference to usability.
So what the manufacturers are left with is ever increasing specs to please the benchmark geeks, and gimmicky features that most people won't use.
Plus peripheral/accessories to save taking your phone out your pocket/use it in different ways
If Samsung built the S3 mini to the standard of the S3, or build a great S4 mini then I might agree with you. But for now, they don't directly compete and there are plenty of customers for both companies to grow.
Strongly agree. Would add it's all about the platform now.

... Plus peripheral/accessories to save taking your phone out your pocket ...
Whoa! You've just given me a great idea - a wristwatch that pairs with a smartphone...
I hear what your saying and agree with you. Still think some people will see it as an either/or between and iPhone and S4
Yep - my phone can drain its battery flat in 15 minutes while playing a HD movie at the same time as filming the crowd watching it in HD and video-conferencing my 8 friends in with PIP, and simulcast of all video streams to them...
Whatever happened to the good old days when you could leave your mobile phone on over the weekend (not charging) and still order a takeaway on Sunday night?
Battery tech is decades behind...
