Samsung Galaxy S4

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is Samsung’s, and perhaps even Android’s, best phone yet. In fact, the best smartphone on the market - Techcrunch

The Samsung Galaxy S4 was one of the most important Android phone releases of 2013 with Samsung becoming competing with the greatest technical developers in the mobile market. 2013 saw major releases of other so-called “super-phones” and the Samsung Galaxy S4 arguably topped the pile and is regarded as one of the best phones on the market over a year after its release.

The design is incredibly similar to that of the GS3, and that is no bad thing as the S3’s “nature-inspired” design ethos was a breath of fresh air. The one aspect of the S3 design that was a little controversial, the Pebble Blue colour scheme has been replaced with classic Black Mist and White Frost colour options. The real engineering feat is the size. The screen has become large, up from 4.8 to 4.99 inches, yet the phone has actually got smaller, now less than 8mm thick. When you consider the extra toys inside as well, this is quite a trick that Samsung have pulled off.

The S4 runs the latest version of Android, 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with Samsung’s TouchWhiz interface on top. This is an established and truly excellent OS, and the GS4 is almost certain to be one of the first updated handsets to any new Android release.

The Galaxy S4 stores 16GB of internal memory. However, thanks to the wonder of in-built applications, there is only 9GB of usable memory. Thankfully the people at Samsung build the S4 capable of housing a microSD memory card. This means, you can expand the memory by as much as a further 64GB, plenty of space for all those videos, pictures, apps, eBooks, games, blogs, and live streams that make up the modern smartphone.
A 2600mAh battery is 25% bigger than that of the S3, which provides ample power to fill in the extra battery requirement that comes from the larger screen and 4G capability.

The camera on the Galaxy S4 is a major upgrade from its predecessor. The S4 totes a 13MP snapper, with better low-light exposure and a fantastic burst-mode. This makes it one of the best cameras available on a mobile phone.

The Galaxy S4 is definitely an evolution rather than a revolution and even though they look very similar, it is safe to say that the S4 is better than the S3 in every way, which is no mean feat. The Samsung Galaxy S4 is still relevant over year since its initial release, almost certainly. If you are looking for one of the best all-round phones available at the moment, the Galaxy S4 is the choice for you.
