New device to be unveiled in New York City
If you're a fan of Samsung's
, you will be glad to hear the latest rumor making the rounds. Sources are indicating that Samsung is set to announce its next high-end smartphone called the Galaxy S IV on March 14. The mid-March introduction date was unveiled started with a tweet from Eldar Murtazin.
Murtazin wrote, "Save the date for a big announcement - March 14 :) And keep silence ;) HTC will miss HTC One sales again :( Like it was in 2012."
backs up that tweet, stating that March 14 is "definitely" the day that Samsung will be unveiling its latest generation flagship smartphone.
Another interesting tidbit that comes from the sources claiming to be familiar with Samsung's plans is that the manufacturer will focus on features rather than raw specifications.
The sources said, "The leap in cool new features from [Galaxy S III] to the next flagship will be bigger." That would seemingly mean that the leap and features would be bigger between the S III and S IV that it was between the S II and the S III.

I run Waze GPS software which requires the screen to be on(for some reason) and play podcasts all day long. I can only go for about 2 hours without it being plugged in.

I find the battery life amazing compared to my old HTC. I use GPS (Sygic) for 2-2.5 hours a day (so screen on etc). plus periodically checking mail, whatsapp, facebook etc. Admittedly very little 'phone' function since I'm currently living in Indonesia where mobile phone call quality is awful - hence sticking with whatsapp etc.
I only charge overnight and get home with 10-30% battery left. I did buy a spare battery but have only needed to use it once!
My old Sensation was lucky to get an hour of GPS out of it before it was flat - basically it was unusable unless plugged in to charge.
Having said that, more battery life is always welcome :)
My wife got the S3 first and loves it - and she's somewhat painful when it comes to phones. It's sooo good the Galaxy tab is now on the cards to replace the Asus Transformer Prime - the latter being laggy too often with scrolling stuff. She was originally looking at the new iPad to replace the Asus (which I'll inherit) but not now.
I got the S3 over Christmas and am blown away by how fast and smooth at everything it is.
The only beef I have is that the music player won't recognise mp3's stored on a removable micro SD. Seems you either need to copy them to the on board SD, or use another player (which I've done).
The only fly in the ointment now is google:
