I’ll wait for the Note 3, hopefully at 6.3″ 🙂


Pitty there isn’t any more information about the 4G – when it will be available and what CPU it has. Have that upgrade feeling where I want to get a 4G phone over my 3G SGS3.

HTC one is looking much better by the minute…

“If it looks the same, how will people know I upgraded?” LOL


Optus link doesn’t seem to work for me 🙁

Would I be able to upgrade my S3 to the S4? Or is this generally an American thing.

James Finnigan

I think it depends on your carrier. Vodafone will let you upgrade at any time, provided that you pay some fees.

Thanks for the info

Telstra will allow you to upgrade at anytime, you just have to pay the remaining amount owed on the handset. They let you do that by installments over a 6 month period.
