Samsung Galaxy S4 : SPECIFICATION AND PRICE
The Samsung Galaxy S series keeps getting g bigger and better with every passing year. The trend continues to see updates in its previous generations and the much anticipated smartphone Samsung Galaxy S4 from the Korean Giant follows the same pattern with its high end features and enviable design. One good thing about S4 is that the size hasn’t changed from its predecessor and there is no extra heft to try and work with in your palm. If you have owned the S series in the past, S4 would feel quite a t home.
Build and Design
Much to Samsung’s disappointment the S3 didn’t fare well as far as looks were concerned. But thankfully with S4, Samsung has come to its senses by ditching the ‘Designed for humans’ playbook. The S4 comes in a candy bar form sans the tapering edges of S3. This gives it a uniform look and a good feeling upon being held. The ergonomic design works well in everybody’s favor. And given the 5 inch screen, the smartphone feels much lighter. S4 comes with a lot of sensors such as humidity sensor, temperature sensor, barometer and an IR sensor. Other than these, it also has an active noise cancellation.
For starters, the S4 comes with a full HD Super AMOLED display. It is powered by a 1.6 GHz octa-core processor and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and TouchWiz. The skin hasn’t changed much albeit a few additions. It is bombarded with a lot of features which eat up about 8GB of the internal 16GB available. The features like Smart scroll, smart pause, air gesture and air view are quite gimmicky but fasinating at the same time.
Media and Battery
When it comes to media, Samsung never disappoints. Much like others in the flagship, the S4 too excels in audio playback. The 13 MP BSI sensor camera will keep the photo enthusiasts happy and clicking.The quad-band GSM handset offers 3G and Wi-Fi support. It covers all your connectivity options including an IR port that works as remote for IR based home entertainment devices. The 2600 mAh battery can easily last for up to 8 hours and a lot also depends on how you use it.
