Samsung Galaxy S4

This technology is beginning to get a bit freaky and scary now.

We've gotta be close to creating Terminators surely?

Being able to control the screen with your eyes! How the fcuk does that work?

Also being able to be in the photo, even if you are taking it?!? WTF!

Once again, Apple is left playing catch up.

It's all great stuff, but I must admit, I was rather underwhelmed with this launch. The features are great, but the handset is rather uninspiring. Just the same as the S3 and Note.

I suppose if the S3 has been so successful, why would you change it too much, but the HTC One does look a nicer phone.

I'm due a new handset in three weeks, so this is serious!!!! I may have to wait and see what the Nexus 5 looks like.

It does have an 8 core (Octocore) processor, 2GB RAM, 128GB of memory and a 13 Megapixel camera, so the hardware isn't too shoddy, and certainly improves on the S3.

amazing technology, do agree with the article that the novelty would wear off, but still, very clever stuff.

Octo-Core sounds like a baddie from Transformers.

I want one for that reason and that reason only.

Unfortunately my contract isn't up till December, by which time there will no doubt be a better phone along.

Still very happy with my Nexus though to be fair, so not chomping at the bit for an upgrade as much as I was last time out.

I've had the S2 for nearly 2 years, and not once have I thought "I wish this was quicker". Where does this end? What are we going to be doing with these phones that uses so much power?

All that does not stop me wanting an 8 core phone, but it should!!! I really don't need an upgrade, but because it is there, I'll probably take it.

It really is amazing. When I think back to my first PC, with it's puny 33Mhz processor.

I have the Note 2 with a quad core processor and I never get close to maxing it out. If it had a projector and a keyboard, I'd never need another computer.

I know what you mean BB, although a tablet PC has been very useful for work, it is still my phone I go to first.

Read some fantastic reviews on the HTC, but there is no SD card expansion or removable battery. The Nexus 4 is OK, but same as the HTC on the SD card and battery front.

The Sony looks great, but I'm concerned about the support. Same with the Motorola, as well.

Might end up with the S4 by default. Could sell it on ebay, I suppose, and stick with the S2.

Apparantly we arent getting the full version here it will have a less powerful chip.
I read it. That's all. It's not a declaration of war and endless posts about this that and the other.
