Samsung debuted the Galaxy S 4 with much brouhaha at Radio City Music Hall in New York City Thursday night. The kick-off bash included tap dancing, bad acting and cringe-inducing jokes. The spectacle was meant to call attention to Samsung's flagship smartphone for 2013, which Samsung calls "a life companion," and all its fancy new lifestyle features.

Some of those features have whimsical names, such as Air Gesture, Drama Shot and Story Album, which will let Galaxy S 4 owners do all sorts of creative and productive things with the smartphone. Perhaps the most appealing new capabilities are the Dual Shot and Dual Record features, which allow users to take pictures or shoot video using the Galaxy S 4's front and rear cameras at the same time.

What I am missing is a docking station and a powerful office suite. A full featured Libre Office or Open Office on Android would be fine.

I guess that holdling rather huge cell phones to your ear has become the new normal. I remember when first seeing people talking on their iPhones, how big they seemed. Who knows. Maybe that's why actually talking on these things is going so out of fashion.

At the top of my wish list would be VoLTE enabling me to get a data only plan.
