With the Samsung Galaxy S4 finally unveiled, we pit its specs against those of its predecessor, the Galaxy S3. After all, a little sibling rivalry never hurt.

No matter you’re deciding if you should wait and get the Samsung Galaxy S4, making sure you don’t have buyer’s remorse from just having purchased your Galaxy S3, or perhaps just plain curious, CNET makes it easy to compare the two sibling handsets with this chart.
Physically, the GS4 didn’t get any bigger. In fact, it even sports a thinner build and weighs a hair lighter. But with a slimmer bezel, its 5-inch full HD Super AMOLED touch screen had room to expand, and the display now sports a higher pixel density.
Also new is its quad- or octo-core processor. Similar to the situation when the GS3 debuted, what CPU is available will depend on where you live.
Both cameras also got a bump, with the rear shooter jumping from 8-megapixel to 13-megapixel. Other changes include running the newer Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean (as expected), a beefed up battery, and a slew of new software features. And if you want to see how the GS4 compares to other flagship handsets, be sure to read our other chart.
