Samsung Galaxy S4 was officially announced last year in March. S4 comes with a stunning 5-inch HD screen, decent battery backup, good camera and like its predecessor the device comes with the plastic finish. Samsung developed this device to compete with HTC One and Sony Xperia Z.
The Galaxy S4 powers a octa-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz, 2GB RAM, 13 mega-pixel rear camera, 16GB built-in storage, Android OS and a delivers a 5-inch, 1920 x 1080 resolution (441 ppi) display screen. Along with all this device delivers a decent battery (2600 mAh).
Like all Android devices, the Galaxy S4 comes with a suite of useful apps including: Google Maps, You Tube, Google Now and many more. While reviewing we notice that the major portion of its internal storage is taken up by Samsung apps which is the negative thing we found. Moreover its camera doesn’t work well in dark light conditions. Overall its good phone but not up to the level of HTC One.
Design & Display
Device comes with a huge 13MP rear camera shooter which works really well in day-light but camera doesn’t work well in dark light conditions. More features include: Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a, b, g, n, n 5GHz, ac, USB 2.0, NFC, DLNA, MHL, Tethering, Computer sync, OTA sync, Infrared.
With battery life of 2,600mAh Samsung Galaxy S4 can survive up to 8 hours. The key point of S4 is its battery, it really has a decent battery. As with a octa-core processor under the hood the smartphone still works for a long time. And as compared to HTC One and Sony Xperia Z has a long lasting battery.
