Buy Cheapest Samsung Galaxy S4 Online. Best Samsung
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is more evolution than revolution compared to the Galaxy S3 - in some ways, it appears that the Korean firm has taken Apple's lead and decided it doesn't have to massively overhaul hardware each time to make a statement.
There's no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy S4 is a significant step-up from the S3. It's impressive that Samsung has managed to slim-down the device even though it's added a bigger screen and a host of new goodies.
With the Samsung Galaxy S4 being officially unveiled last month following numerous leaks and rumors, we went hands-on with the iPhone 5 rivaling device at the New York launch event.
The most eagerly awaited handset of the year, paralleled only by the iPhone 5S, the Samsung Galaxy S4 was officially unveiled with a 5-inch Full HD touchscreen display and Google's latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS in tow. What's more, the South Korean manufacturer has launched the Samsung Galaxy S3 replacement boasting the accolade of being the world's first eight-core smartphone.
Taking on a near identical form to that of the S3, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is an inoffensive yet somewhat uninspiring affair with Samsung's trademark plastic finish detracting slightly from what is otherwise a high-end, cream-of-the-crop device. Lining the two handset's up against each other, and front-on it is slightly difficult to distinguish between the two.
The camera has been upgraded to a 13-megapixel model. It has a Backside-illuminated (BSI) sensor for better low-light sensitivity, although there's also a flash for when it's really dark. We took a few test shots in the dark demo hall and they looked fine on-screen, but actual quality tests need to wait until we have a test handset.
At the front is a 2-megapixel BSI camera. While it can be used for video calling, it can also be used with Samsung's Dual Camera mode, which lets you superimpose a shot from the front camera on the footage from the rear camera. In practice, this means that you can have your floating head, bordered by a postage-stamp frame imposed on the picture taken by the main camera. It feels a little gimmicky.
While the Galaxy S4 will look the same everywhere in the world, it won't necessarily have the same motor under the hood. Your future GS4 handset will either thrum from a 1.9GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 series processor, or from a 1.6GHz eight-core chipset, Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa silicon.
If the promise of the GS4's 13-megapixel images doesn't wow you, Samsung is hoping that its refreshed interface and enhanced features will. Perhaps the most out-there is the dual-shot mode, which takes photos and video from both the front- and rear-facing cameras, and combines them into one (LG's Optimus G Pro does this, too.)
The background shows the capture from your main camera, while the foreground -- whatever you take from the front-facing camera -- lays on top. You can choose to change the window size and shape on top, say a postcard stamp, an oval, or a simple window.
Conflicting rumors painted a scenario where you'd scroll the screen with your eyes using eye-tracking software within the GS4.
Turns out, that's somewhat true. Smart Pause and Smart Scroll are two features that build off the Galaxy S3's optional Smart Stay feature, which kept the screen from dimming when you looked at it. In the GS4, tilting the screen up or down while looking at it scrolls you up or down, say if you're reading a CNET story, of course. As a daily commuter with one hand on the phone and one on a hand strap, this could be a more convenient way to catch up with news while on the train or bus.
