Yeah, I agree. I looked at multiple phones when I recently upgraded to a new phone, and knew right away that a screen size as big as say what's on an S4, isn't for me. I just went with a Stratosphere II phone, since I prefer having a traditional texting keyboard like what was on a lot of mid-2000s cell phones(i.e. T-Mobile Sidekick, since a co-worker having such a phone really made me want to find a similar phone for Verizon, which I eventually did get), and the screen isn't too big nor too small(4 inches, vs. 5 inches and up for phones like the S3, S4, Note 2(and 3), etc.

It will be between the S5 or the G3 for me. By most accounts, the LG will be the only phone in the S5's league. I'll be surprised if either phone is 64 bit and has retina scan to unlock. Got a S3 now, it's a great phone but the battery life is horrible. The S5 will supposedly debut in Barcelona this Monday, so we'll know all about it soon. The G3...lots of reports say it will debut in May, but other articles contradict this, saying more like September. Some think LG will get it out sometime this Spring to try and go head to head with Samsung's S5. I hope that's true, because I'd like to check out both phones before deciding, and not have to wait for months to see the G3 before deciding. I've heard many good things about the G2. Many put it above the Sammy S4. Also wondering if the G3 will have no card slot or removable battery like the G2. I'm thinking it might not be a huge issue if it doesn't.. Since the G2's battery seems to last all day under heavy use, I doubt the G3 would be any worse and with at least 32 gigs of internal memory, no slot or removable battery isn't quite the issue it used to be. But I'd still rather have those to options if possible.

I agree I had an s4 and a note 3. and I hooked a Bluetooth up on both of em and it was a crappy connection each time and the watch kept disconnecting from the phone and I would not get all of my text mesgs and my watch would not ring all the time when the phone rang POS. shame on shame sung

Well, we know all about the S5 now. Coming from a S3, it's a OK upgrade, but wouldn't do it if you have a S4, the improvements are to small, but that's just me. I'll be waiting to see what LG has to offer with the G3. I'm willing to bet the G3 will be everything the S5 is and much more. May not come out for a few months yet though. My S3 should do fine till then.

I think Samsung played their cards right in being conservative with the S5 until Apple officially unveils the iPhone in a few months from now. Samsung are king of one uppers or copycat. Nothing wrong with it, but definitely a good business move on their part.
