I have an S2 right now running NeatROM 4.1.2, but I am interested in these 2 phones.

I want it unlocked and I'm from Australia but my S2 is from the UK and I don't mind shopping there or the US.

They MUST be google edition phones, so no TW or Sense.

Is the google HTC one actually official yet? I thought it was still a rumour.

The google edition phones are US only. Maybe you will be able to import one. The S4 is supposed to be released at the end of June. Maybe you should just buy an s4 or one, root it, and install a custom ROM.

End of June, thats forever. What's the wait for, Samsung doesn't have to remove TW or anything, its not on there anyway.

It's possible Samsung could want to hold back the launch so they can try and adopt more S4 Buyers with Touchwiz and their service's on it.

Or maybe the whole plan of stock S4 was concieved not too long ago and obviously it takes time to properly optimize the stock android software for it.

Well, S4 is cool, but it's out of my budget . Finally i bought a high imitation one INEW M2 But fast & very nice price ! : ) Have a look. (INEW) M2 5.0" HD Capacitive Touch Screen MTK6589 4-Core Android 4.2.1 3G Smart Phone+ GPS+ 12MP Full Shot CAM Battery 1700mah 4.2 Android OS has the smile detection camera features. Whether in function or configuration which are very similar to SG S4 http://www.tinydeal.com/inew-m2-android-421-phone-px1n18v-p-96637.html Anyway, INEW M2($171.99) is much economic than ZP980($319.99) and SG S4(more than $600)
