Samsung Galaxy S4 Smartphone: A Review
23 May 2014
Excerpt: I have used Windows Phone devices almost exclusively for the last year, and while I am a huge fan of the hardware (specifically Nokia devices), the third part support of Windows Phone is still lacking.
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
Cons: Subpar camera quality – did not perform well in low lighting
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.
Summary: This is one of the hardest Final Thoughts I've had to write. I put off writing my S4 review for a couple of weeks because I was so tied on my thoughts, and didn't want to hastily write a review of the smartphone to just get it out of the way.
Summary: Samsung’s well and truly established itself with its Galaxy S series at this point, and as Apple now operates with its iPhones, each new instalment is no longer a breathtaking revolution, merely a gradual evolution.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy S4 comes with some of the most innovative features you'll find in any smartphone on the market, as well as the ability to tap into T-Mobile's LTE service. And although T-Mobile's LTE footprint is small, you'll pay considerably less than other carriers over two years.
Excerpt: The top two Android phones of the year are the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4 . Millions of customers have flocked to stores in this country and beyond to snag one of these phones so they can have the bragging rights of being one of the first, if not the first, in their crew to have one.
Summary: Verizon customers shopping for a new smartphone should give their highest consideration to the Galaxy S4, which combines an incredible set of custom software with an eye-poppingly colorful 5-inch screen and the most feature-rich camera ever on an Android device.
