What benefits are there to using both of these services?

Dropbox handles my photo syncs and i just use the normal SMS app.
Hangouts/Gtalk I quite like, on the one hand for me it's cheaper (PAYG so 2p per text or 1p per Mb data, and a hangout message is way less than a mb ), but also I like that I can use the 'app' on both the phone and the PC, keeping the history 'in the cloud'. With the integration with SMS it can now be used (by me) as a single app on the phone for both which works for me.

G+, all depends on what you want, as you say Dropbox handles the photo syncs just as well, personally I use google drive rather than dropbox and G+ photo sync doesn't affect that limit, just different use cases with the same end result. As for the service itself, I see it more of a Twitter 'competitor', I've always seem Twitter as being artificially limited and ultimately a messy, nasty place to find information. G+ is a far nicer layout and yet it does the same "follow people/companies/groups to keep up to date with what's happening" idea.

Glad I held out from buying an s4 now

Hope I can get my hands on one of these bad boys!

Any official word on price?

Think I'll get a new phone in early 2014, this looks like it will be among the top contenders.

You got that right. It's turning into a bit of a shamble, but all is well when I look at the below to keep me going..

Has to be an announcement today or tomorrow at the latest. Stock is popping up everywhere, and Google just updated all apps to work with KitKat!

And to make it 'worse' my Spigen case arrived today from Amazon!

This is getting daft, there is still no date for a press event etc, it's like they are just going to spring it on everyone. At least we all now know that there will be stock of the phone in shops when the announcement is made, so no further waiting. Is there a way the guy with the handset at work can easily verify the hardware spec's I wonder.

I wonder if the bottom speakers are actually stereo. I believe on the iPhone only one of the groups of holes has a speaker in, the other is just aesthetic.

I doubt it, LG have had twin grilles before with one being the speaker and the other the phone mic.

There is currently over 1800 people reading the mobiles section of the OC forums right now, I think they have Nickyyy to thank for that.
