The battery is larger (2600 mAh compared to 2150? of the S3), but so is the screen. And those pixels love to eat up battery. Overall, it might be incrementally better battery wise than the S3.

It looks similar to the 4S to 5 upgrade to me.

It looks like mostly software updates, so I wonder if the S3 will get some of those. The HTC one still looks like it will compete, it looks great

S3 has a dual core processor in North America and S4 has a quad core processor. That's a pretty big change. If you guys are talking about the design the change is barely noticable other then the size.

I'm not that impressed. The camera looks bad. Plus, no SD card? Fuck that garbage.

I like the thin look, but the back is Fugly!

Not too impressed with what it's packing, I just like the look. Thin, sleek looking. The back I will agree with you on, the worst part is the damn Beats Audio branding near the bottom back.

I drive my S3 pretty hard and it has zero problems. It's already a better unit than a IP5. Not sure why they thought they needed a slight upgraded S4. I guess to really put a strangle hold on.

They speakers probably are the best, they just aren't a major selling point for me. It's looks nice though, it's got an iPhone-ish kind of look which I can admire. Can't stand that small iP5 screen though.

Things that catch my eye now are a premium design, 1080p, removable batteries (a dying breed) and an SD card slot.
