Anyone gonna jump ship come March 14th? The specs (rumored) are quite impressive. I imagine, size wise, it won't be any bigger than the S3. But a 13 megapixel camera? Yikes!

But no ill be staying with my iPhone 5. Gave Android several tries and it just didn't work out. The upcoming HTC One does have very impressive build quality and hardware design though.

Too expensive for me. I just bought my s3. I'll definitely get one when i can find one used though
Same boat, have a new S3, I will wait until next year or grab a used one if it comes around. Honestly the camera isn't the biggest deal for me, I use my digital camera for any important pictures.

Of course.

I have to always have the best so I'd have to get the 4

I was more or less alluding to the fact Samsung is apparently pulling out all the stops by including the 13 megapixel camera. But yeah, not a strong selling point for me, either.

screen is going to be about 5 inches I believe..
That could mean the same physical size though. 4.8" to 5" (4.99") could possibly fit in the same physical enclosure.

--------------------------

I will probably be getting one. I have a Nexus 4 now, but I am hoping the GS4 has great battery life. Plus a 1080P screen and LTE are now on my priorities list for desired features in my next smartphone.

Agreed. Love the look of the upcoming One. But it's not gonna be available for Verizon, so...

Should still be a noticeable size difference though to the S3

I'm guessing it will look like size wise like the Galaxy grand which was released this past week maybe?

Will I get the GS4?
YES

Will going from a GS3 to a GS4 be a waste of money?
YES

Do I care?
NO

Will I sell the GS3?
Not sure yet. Most likely I will. I sold my 4S when I got the GS3, but can't bring myself to sell my iP4.

I fail to see how going from the S3 to the S4 is a waste of money

bigger screen
better display
better camera
likely a few added features

to me is more than just a minor upgrade.

Why is that a huge deal? Sony Xperia phones have had 12 and 13 Megapixel phones for a while now, heck the Nokia 808 has a 48 Megapixel camera.

Okay. But I've never owned a phone with a 13 megapixel camera personally. Hence my comment. Why didn't Apple include such a feature on the iPhone 5 if it's no big deal? Plus, I love Sony for things like the PS3 and DVD players or TV's, but not for a cellphone.

Upgrading from any good phone that soon is a waste of money.

Something like that is still unknown. But looking at this picture here, it wouldn't surprise me if they were able to just extend the screen out to the edges. 0.199 inches is not very much at all.

As I mentioned I think if you look at the galaxy grand and compare the size with the S3..I reckon that will be the difference.
