im looking forward to the GS5 with the 2k res i may see no difference from the GS3 1080p res but im sure it will look a little better as for battery life i couldnt really care i don't worry about it and im useing my GS3 constantly all day if the battery gets low i just plug it in and recharge it for a while and continue on .
In my opinion companies are going to continue to make smartphones with more this more that what it comes down to is if YOU don't want it don't buy it the problem with this is i don't see anyone with a Motorola DynaTAC mobile any more which mind you cost around $4000 dollars :p

Do the maths? ahhahahahahaha....
2K display = 2160x1920..

IGZO screen is a better choice since it is cheaper, thinner, and equally power saving.

The new Li-Po batteries allow for higher capacities and longer battery health too. So rest assured, that the industry is FAR more prepared for a 2k 2014 than it was for a 1080p 2013.
I'd expect battery life to be around the 8-10 Hours mark for video playback/browsing, and calls to set all time high scores with these new devices.

Better battery technology is already there,but... If they put this into a cell phones,then this will be also available for other industry,like cars and other things.And then some lobbies will start losing money.

It's very sad they sacrificing battery life just to be the first company with such a high res device. Marketing gimmick because there's no use for it.

That's awesome, how do you know? I have a smartphone with a 5 inch screen and 4000 mah battery at, 13 mm thick and is satisfying, can't kill it in 1 day, lasts 1 day and a half with gigantic usage At 50+ screen brightness

if it'll have at least 3.500 mAH power battery, and loud dual stereo speakers with high quality it will wow me, otherwise its just a new phone out there.

I dont really thinl a 4 inch phone needs 1080 p and as much as i love my HTC ONE stellar screen quality and superb color reproduction the whites in the iphone are more white.I think the color reproduction on iphones must be just slightly better than other flagships s4,htc one,g2 but definitly not sharper. Images on Htc one just look gorgeous. The S4 has very warm colors its nice to look at it b

Again i dont think you willsee a terrible battery drain because they are putting in a big battery but we should blame the big companies why they dont innovate in battery life but just in features so consumers can say wow this phone does all this things.

> In reply to Xavi3r @ 2013-12-26 20:03 from srr2 - click to readYou want a 4.3" smartphone, with a 4000 mAh battery? LOL
you have any ideia how thick a bettery so small in size should be to achieve the 4000 mAh... you'd have a smartphone that is as thick as an oldschool Nokia 5110 or something like that...
Sorry, but for me that doesn't make any sense...
I agree with you on the matter of big batteries, but the equipment thickness should be mantained in check... i think the limit (and i'm already pushing it to far) should be 15~18mm MAX... i'm no battery engineer, but i believe it should be impossible by now to build a battery with that capacity, thickness and size...
