    Why do all the new phones have an S suffix? What's the relevance?

    None, it just sounds good! I guess it could stand for Special or Superior, or just Successor

    But I think it's the latest marketing term, like putting "i" or "e" in front of things to make them more techie and cooler

    I think it means "speed" !

    At least it did when the iPhone 3GS and the Galaxy S came out.
