    I have a few major issues with my galaxy S3 and I'm wondering if they have been addressed in the S4. I think I'd actually buy the S4 outright if they were improved quite a bit. I can't seem to find out if they just moved the location of the speaker or replaced it with a better one.

    1) The speaker on my S3 sucks. I can barely hear people on speaker phone unless I'm in a totally quiet area. When trying to show people youtube clips with any background noise people have to get right up next to the phone.

    2) I basically can't see the screen if I'm outside and the sun is out.

    Check GSMArena.com review as they have all this info.

    All I know is the speaker on the Note 2 is better than the S4's.

    One good thing I just read about the Galaxy S4 screen is that it is sensitive enough to use with gloves on. That is definitely a plus for me :)

    The earpiece and speaker sound rather poor. Hmmm not certain I want it at all now.

    I wouldn't say poor, I would say they will be adequate, just not great.
    For me neither of these are a priority as I make few calls and tend to use headphones, but I guess it depends on the individual
