Now that we have confirmation of Apple's next iPhone event being just around the corner, it's only a matter of days before we (very, very likely) see a bigger iPhone screen finally rounding out the bunch. Which got us thinking—what's your ideal smartphone screen size?
Google just pushed out the Android 4.3 OTA update for the Google Play edition of the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4. This is exactly why you want the Google Play edition of an Android phone. [AnandTech]
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is a damn fine phone. It's fast, it's big, it's thin and it's completely deserving to be in most people's pockets. But apparently that's not enough for Samsung. Samsung has gotten caught cheating benchmark tests to make itself look better. Basically, the S4 is specifically tweaked to be better…
Because the Samsung Galaxy S4 can sense when you're looking at it, Swisscom hilariously set up a challenge for people to stare at the phone for an hour. If you hit the 60 minute mark, you win a free Samsung Galaxy S4. If you get distracted, you don't get one. Easy? Not as easy as you think!
So, following last night's Samsung announcement, it's fair to say that we're a little underwhelmed. While we're reserving final judgement until we review it properly, the new Galaxy S IV doesn't seem to be quite the super phone we were expecting. Our very own Brent Rose explains:
A series of leaked videos purport to show off some of the Samsung Galaxy S IV's new control methods, including a smart pause system and touch-free control. Why wait for tonight when you can check out all the goodies right now?
The Samsung Galaxy S IV is going to be announced in 10 days and we're pretty excited for it even if we don't know what it's going to look like. We might now. A few leaked images of what's supposed to be the Galaxy S IV have come out and if they're real, the phone looks pretty good. And it won't have a home button.
