Victim of the rumor mill...hopefully this teaches you to take anything that doesn't come straight from Apple (concerning Apple products) with the tiniest grain of salt.
Why do you think so many of us were trashing on all the new threads popping up in this forum spreading the hype like wild fire...lol.

I bought the Verizon i4 on release day. When they announced the data rate changes i had to get my oldest son off his feature phone to keep all of my lines on unlimited data. He had been bugging me for some time for an i4. I told him when the i5 came out he could have mine. Since red decided to change the data rate i thought i would try a 4g phone.
Idk, i guess i just thought with the droves of 4in plus screens out there on droid phones, that the 4in screen on the new iphone would be a given.
But (long sigh), after some reflection, i think it will be a perfect phone. Plus, i won't be able to use the new nexus alongside my ipad 3 (late Christmas present from my wife) and my macbook pro as fluently with the nexus so it just makes sense.

I don't understand why everyone wants such a big screen. I had a Droid X with the 4.3, and thought it was too big. It wasn't comfortable to pocket, and drained the hell out of the battery. I was just helping a friend at work with a Thunderbolt, and I didn't miss that massive screen size at all. I think the 3.5" screen is perfect. If I need anything bigger, I have an iPad, or a MPB to use. I for one am happy with the 4S, and can't wait to actually use it.

I was upset too! The hype got me. I really wanted the 4 inch screen above all else! But like you after a night to cool down and realize that Apple never lied or told me that the screen would be larger I can see clearly and they've put together an excellent list of new features. I'm in love all over again.

Ya know, there comes a point where pixel depth becomes a non issue. Once you pass a certain point, your eyes can't distinguish the difference anymore. The point i am trying to make is, the charge doesn't have a "crappy" screen just because the retina display has a slightly higher resolution. The only reason he said that is because his opinion is higher of the retina display, hence, bias.
I like both devices, although i would rather use the iPhone. That doesn't mean i'm going to trash the Charge because it's a Samsung.

now that I have thought about it, It really isnt much of a surprise.
2007, iphone released. Later that year, the 2nd gen version
2008 new design
2009, 2nd gen version (3gs)
2010 new design
2011 2nd gen version
It looks like they intro a device, then intro a 2nd gen version, then intro a new design.
