Summary: I can remember a time, and not all that many years ago, when it was deemed cool to have as small a mobile phone as possible. Tiny little , barely as tall and wide as a credit card, were all the rage as manufacturers competed to see who could make the smallest, lightest and most efficient handset.

Excerpt: The Galaxy S4 does everything well: It contended for the top spot on nearly every test we threw at it. The S4 offers great battery life; in our Good Housekeeping Research Institute tests, it streamed video for 10 hours on its beautiful 5" HD display.
Pros: Great battery life, Excellent display quality, Good speaker quality, Easy to type on, Portable, Easy to read on, Easy to navigate

Conclusion: The S 4 is not the perfect phone, but it’s a damn fine improvement over the S 3. I haven’t even mentioned that Samsung now has a two-year water damage warranty which comes free with every S 4 – the phone really is your life companion and Samsung wants to ensure that nothing happens to it.
