Am I the only one who as yet to see any tangible improvement over the S3 in these rumours?

Slightly bigger screen with FHD. I very much doubt we'll be able to notice any real world difference between 720p and 1080p on a cell phone. Less colour shift at wide viewing angles, improved colour accuracy and the possibility to calibrate the screen are more important towards better screens than ppi count.

13MP camera? I wish manufacturers had stopped this pointless pixel race already and took steps to really improve image quality - bigger sensors for starters, improved quality in low light, better quality optics, etc. Oh, and is it so hard to put a physical shutter button on the phone? It is not like space is lacking...

Alas, I fear the S4 will just be an S3 with minor "improvements" in order to keep the yearly update cycle of top-of-the-range phones.
Yeah i agree with you, the s4 might pack the exynos 5440 quadcore chipset and the note 3 will feature the octacore i suppose

I absolutely loved the physical shutter button on the older phones and its more of a daily use thing when you got 5"+ phones, would love to see a shutter button like the lock button on the xperia z

Samsung hopefully will pull a rabbit out of the hat in its march event because after looking at other devices like the xperia z, optimus g pro, htc one and Tegra 4 chipset i doubt it that Samsung will continue its reign in the smartphone world due to no INNOVATION

^^^^
It will be better to use octa(big.LITTTLE) than a quad A15 on a phone , no way a quad A15 would come with s4

LCD = Fail

Just ordered a Note 2 because i hate LCD. These 1080p LCD's are epic failures. Colours suck and so does the power usage from the LED's needed to keep the brightness up.

I find it hard to believe their "accuracy" is good because who would make their colours so bland and boring.

Im going to the note 2 with 2 spare batteries a charging stand and 64GB SD Card. Turn the brightness up to 100% and enjoy this phone to the full.

Im sick and tired of being conservative with these crap sealed battery phones with LCD screens running the brightness at 10% to get through the day.

If I were you I wouldn't rush buying that spare battery. I too was a spare battery advocate until I bought the Note 2. However, with the Note 2 I never felt the need for a spare battery. The battery life is really impressive. Try the phone for a month before you make a decision. You'll be surprise with the amount of juice the Note 2's battery packs.

i got 2 batteries for 8. So its not much of a risk. Ill keep one in the car and one on the stand and one in the phone and ill never have to touch a charger again.

Amazon.

5 star reviews so far so im guessing they will be fine. Might not last as long as Samsungs but then i can buy 4 of these for the price of 1 samsung one.

Perhaps it's better to wait until the S4 is officially announced before making your decision? I'm not a particular fan of lcd either but there's no concrete evidence behind these rumours.

I'm going to hold out, I'm sure they [Samsung] will not disappoint! They have far too much riding on this!
