Samsung Galaxy S4 takes on too much in podcast 338

Is the Samsung Galaxy S4 just too complicated? And is Nokia on the road to hell?

We like to think we know a thing or two, but sometimes the complexity of modern life overwhelms even us. And now the feature-packed Samsung Galaxy S4 has us thinking: are today's gadgets just too complicated?

Sure, it's a great phone. But packed with a plethora of wacky camera options and stuffed with a surfeit of Samsung-branded apps, the S4 is just the latest phone loaded with extra stuff no-one wants, needs or even asked for. Should we go back to a simpler time, or is technology best when it does a million-and-one things?

And we turn to you, esteemed listener, for your feedback. What will gadgets be like in 10 years time? Should you give health trackers like the Fitbit and Nike+ a sporting chance? And will GTA5 be a next-gen game?
