Samsung Galaxy S4

Samsung unveiled their next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S4, and it was quite impressive even though it didn’t have everything that I was hoping, it had nearly all of it, all of my “requirements” at least.

  • Display: 4.99 inch Full HD Super AMOLED (1920×1080) display with 441 ppi.
  • Processor: 1.6GHz/1.2GHz Exynos 5 Octa processor or 1.9GHz Snapdragon quad-core processor depending on the region
  • Camera: 13-megapixel back facing camera and 2-megapixel front facing camera.
  • Memory: 2GB LPDDR3 RAM
  • Storage: 16GB/32GB/64GB

And what about the features I mentioned/were rumored?

  • Smart Pause/Play/Scroll are all confirmed to be on the phone. Brilliant!
  • S Drive: Samsungs own GPS for the car with some real nice features such as being able to talk with it.
  • S Health: Samsungs own health application, seems very promising if you care about your health and caloric intake.
  • Dual Cameras: Allows you to take pictures from front and rear camera at the same time.
  • Dual Video Call: Same as camera, but with video and up to three-way video calls.
  • Group Play: Allows you to share content/games simultaneously with other S4 users.

And on top of that they have the new Gorilla 3 glass that is incredible durable and insanely difficult to shatter/scratch. Quite an impressive piece of technology. The ball is now in Apple’s court. Can they match the greatness that is the S4 with their next iPhone?

The new S4.
