It's been nearly 10 months since the highly successful Samsung Galaxy S3 was first released in the U.S., and in a few more days, the Galaxy S4 will be sold online and in several retail stores across the U.S.
With a 5-inch HD screen, a 13-megapixel camera, and either a quad- or octa-core processor (the U.S. will get the former), the GS4 is dressed to the nines with hardware goods.
So how does it stack up against its current competition? Based purely on a spec-by-spec showdown, we compare the handset with three other popular flagships, all on different OS platforms: Apple's iPhone 5, the HTC One, and the BlackBerry Z10.
Judge for yourselves (as we're sure you will) whether Samsung's newest device has what it takes to bring down its rivals. And if you're curious about how it stacks up against its GS3 predecessor, check out our other chart.
