Some of the smart functions are nice, but pretty much almost everything we already knew. Either way, the phone looks to be as great as the SIII.
It's still disappointing that it's only quad-core in the US. Shafted by Samsung again. Quad-core has been used since last fall, and I'm surprised that Samsung couldn't get it working with LTE (the problem they had last time with the SIII, which is why it's dual-core in the US). It would have put them way above the competition.
Looks like we won't see the dual quad-cores until the Note III over here.
Samsung hates America. It's so simple.
Apparently according to CyanogenMod, due to there being two different versions with two different processors and the Exynos processor sources used by them, it may be a hard for hacking and modding the S4.
Also Google is taking out ad-blocking apps from the Play Store. Luckily, AdBlocker Plus is offering it directly to the users. Thank you side-loading apps.
