    The king of all smartphones. If I find money, I'll buy this! 🙂 Samsung must release a phone with the specs of S Pro downgraded (Galaxy S Pro Lite / Galaxy Pro) for people who cant afford the original S Pro.

    Just want to know what the battery life is like. Any better than the Moment? That's apple biggest longterm selling point imho. Every other feature iPhone 4 will be overtaken on… but battery life is the key to domination.
