Many people doesn’t realize the evolution in software as they just care about the design or expect someone totally innovative. The new features of Galaxy S4 are awesome and I believe in the success of Samsung this year. Notice that this is just the episode 1. :D
Yes, I agree that some new apps and inner functions has been included in the Galaxy S4 but the hardware specs are almost as same as the Galaxy S3.
