A full-HD display, octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM and up to 64GB of storage. This isn't a desktop PC we're talking about, it's Samsung's new flagship phone, the Galaxy S4.

The five-inch portable powerhouse is the eagerly-anticipated successor to the popular Galaxy S3, and in true Samsung fashion, it isn't lacking in the hardware department.

The 441 ppi display is one of many highlights on a spec sheet designed to out-muscle most competitors. With a 13-megapixel camera, NFC, 4G LTE, and a 2,600mAh battery that supports wireless charging, this clearly is an epic device, and yet it's only 7.9mm thick.

But as ludicrous as it sounds, is all that enough? Samsung's handset still looks awfully familiar - anyone who disliked the appearance of the S3 is hardly going to fall in love with the S4 - and if you do have your heart set on an Android device, there's now another One that demands serious consideration.

Pre-orders for Samsung's new flagship start later this month, prior to a UK release date of April 26, but in the meantime let the debate begin; will you be buying a Galaxy S4? Let us know using the comments facility below.

No. Possibly. Oh, I don't know. I guess it depends what else is around when I come to change (October). If there's a new Nexus out, and it's not some phablet thing, I'll probably go with that, provided it goes for the same or similar price as the N4.
No. I'm in the minority I know, but I think the Samsung galaxy phones look a bit tacky compared to my HTC One X.

Also, marketing guff like this…

When several S4s are in close proximity, they can link up to play the same music, simultaneously - perfect for headphone dance parties.

HEY LOOK AT US!! LOOK HOW QUIRKY AND HIP WE ARE WITH OUR HEADPHONE PARTIES AND ON PHONE PHOTO EDITING VIRAL HIGH JINX! WE'RE NOT TRYING REALLY HARD, THIS IS US NATURALLY, I PROMISE!
Nope.

Might as well get a Note 2.

Out of all the gimmicky samsung features recently, I quite like the sound of that, will be great if it can do it on loudspeaker so we can have a decent speaker setup on the go
Nah, gotta be the HTC this year - even if it does have that stupid beats logo on the back
