I didn't have an S3, so I can't really compare the specs. I jumped from the S2 to the S4, so obviously it is quite a leap for me.
I did play with the S3 a bit though and I do find this to be less slick and it balances better in my hand. That's one thing with both the S2 and S3 from my experiences... It wasn't so much that it felt cheap, but they just didn't fit well in my hand, especially if you try to use it with one hand.
This one has a much more comfortable feel and just naturally fits better, imo. Not sure if they adjusted the weight distribution or what, but there is a noticeable difference.
The side and edges aren't quite as rounded as the S3, either... More squared off, which gives it more of a substantial and less plastic feel, even though it is SUPER light.
They definitely took note of the complaints a lot of people had when it came to how the S2 and S3 felt in your hand. Then again, a lot of that stuff comes down to personal preference and maybe even the shape of your hand. My first impression is a good one, though.
