Seems like a lot of cool new features are coming out on the S4, as well as maybe an S Voice upgrade?!?
Some of these things are starting to get annoying thought, I don't want to gesture to control my phone, I want to touch and interact with it, I hate tech that kills tactile feedback, but I'm a designer and material nerd so that could be biased.

You can turn the gestures off, or pick and choose which one you wanna use. Choices are always good.

I wish it wasn't plastic, or so round.

Would honestly choose the new HTC One in white over this, purely on aesthetics.

I like the idea of optional wireless charging. I don't want to pay for a function if I'm not going to use it.

I don't like the way they are continuing with the flip cases, especially the windowed one. Anyone who has used one knows that they are annoying to have flapping around, and folding them over results in them not fully folding back onto the screen and bending upwards, as you can see on the video with the windowed case. Do not want.

Still, I can mod Wireless Charging onto my Note II pretty easily, and I'd much rather have the extra screen size it gives me, so I'm not fussed about the S4. tongue.gif

I still think that the the Galaxy S are incredibly ugly, yet Samsung appears to be doing something very interesting with it I mean gimmicks aside that S4 has a ton of interesting features.

The roundness, as a designer I get it, it's a "safe" design meaning that the mass market will like it and "think" its comfortable vs a square edged iPhone, which looks cool, but mentally mass markets tend to think that they are sharp and dig into your hands. Not my complaint, but just saying.
Agree totally on the materials. An anodized aluminum back would be baller, I'd feel like I didn't have to baby it all the time, my S3 gets treated like a queen because any little slip can destroy a whole corner. Gimme dat metal.

It's just a bigger S3, and the S3 was designed to look like that so that they wouldn't get patent raped by Apple for design infringement. It has nothing to do with what the masses want, if anything the masses prefer the shape of the S2 compared to the S3&4.
