Just over one third of TechWeekEurope readers are keen to get their paws on a Samsung Galaxy S4, although most want smartphones from other manufacturers, according to our latest poll.

Samsung revealed its new flagship smartphone last month, which is due to be released on 26 April, boasting a larger 5-inch Super AMOLED display, 1.9 GHz quad-core processor, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and a 13 megapixel camera.
