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. Nowadays, it seems that if you want a high-end smartphone, you have to be prepared to buy trousers with bigger pockets.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy S4 is a great smartphone with a lot of features and capabilities that help it match and exceed most of the smartphones in the market. The evolution of the voice, motion and visual interaction takes smartphone interaction to a new level. Not only that but the S4 has the fastest processor and the latest operating system with great camera. This is the true star in the market.
Pros: Very advanced high performance processor, latest Android operating system, outstanding screen, camera, video and a lot of unique applications
Conclusion: Should you go out and buy this, especially when this unlocked model is flaunting an outright price point of $649? Well, if you’re a diehard Android user, one who takes pride in getting that untouched experience, this is arguably a device that’ll appeal to you – even more when it’ll more than likely receive updates faster than its TouchWiz sibling.
Pros: Stock Android experience, Snappier performance, Improved battery life
Excerpt: S o it’s been a couple weeks since I spoke about the Samsung Galaxy S4. A lot has gone down in that short time. New variants of the S4 and HTC One have been reported and seen in the wild. But the biggest news is that Samsung has been forced to cut its July Galaxy S4 sales predictions in half. The numbers are still staggering, just not quite as astronomical. They predict 6.5million GS4 devices will be sold next month in July.
Pros: Snapdragon 600 quad-core CPU is the fastest in class. Massive UI customization. Some neat new features. Air Gesture is fun. Amazing camera. UI and static images pop. Qi wireless charging. NFC support. Love the multi-window app tray. Flipboard integration.
Cons: Plastic feels flimsy, slipper and sub-par. Lacks heft. Clutter-potential with overlapping interfaces. To familiar in the face of changing competition.
Excerpt: [dropcap]T[/dropcap]he AT&T Samsung Galaxy S4 is a treat. Eye Candy to the masses, it has already (if reports on the Internet are correct) outsold the iPhone 5. This is entirely believable as Cook hasn’t done anything new and innovative since he has been in charge of Apple and the iPhone 5 is no exception to that.
