Samsung managed to enthrall audiences with the worldwide debut of Galaxy S4. It was no less than a celebration; clearly, the South Korean giant is inviting iPhone users to adopt Samsung devices. It has been said constantly the biggest hooker of the Samsung Galaxy S4 would be its software. Surely, the revealed hardware was strong enough to sweat both Sony and HTC like anything. For majority of tech media, the true winner has to be Samsung’s own bundled software that comes with the Galaxy 4.
It is suspected that with the Samsung Galaxy S4, the tech vendor wants to create its own ecosystem just like Apple did long time back. It is to be seen how Google will respond to Samsung’s growing dominance in the coming days to come. It is also being said that Google is betting its stakes high on the upcoming smartphone made by Motorola. As of now, Samsung has once again created history by announcing a true rather far better product than an iPhone. Steve Jobs must be cursing his team especially Tim Cook for not following his footsteps.
Samsung Galaxy S4 – The Fight must go on…
March 14, call it as a D-Day for Samsung along with number of other hardware manufacturers. The unveiling of the Samsung made Galaxy S4 was rather hyped, but justice has been done by the tech vendor. The South Korean giant has come up with a successor to highly successful Samsung Galaxy S3. The South Korean giant is clearly taking on Apple along with HTC and Sony. The chosen venue – Radio City Hall in New York City, witnessed a gala premier of the world’s brightest smartphone.
Since past few months, the hardware of the Galaxy S4 was making its presence felt on minds of eager consumers. As per various reports, Samsung has stuffed the Galaxy S4 with epic internals: a 5-inch Super AMOLED Full HD display which packs 441ppi, Corning Glass 3, 2GB of RAM, 16GB/32GB/64GB of internal RAM, octa core processor (International version) and 1.9-GHz quad core Snapdragon 600 processor( US version), 2,600mAh battery, Wi-Fi, 3G , Global LTE, NFC, a 13-mega pixel rear camera and a 2-mega pixel front facing camera and lastly Qi wireless charging. In terms of design, the device is very similar looking to its successor. Once again Samsung has gone for polycarbonate design rather than slick aluminum styled chassis.
As mentioned above, the beast is loaded with some heavy packed features. The same can be said for software as well. With Samsung Galaxy S4, the company has come up with some extra rich features that aren’t present in the recent launches from HTC One and Sony Xperia Z. So, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is a true device that combines a well built hardware along with added software inclusion with utmost care. Here we go.
Let’s talk about camera first-:
The Samsung Galaxy S4 arrives with a 13-mege pixel camera senor on the rear. True, the quality of the camera would be rather pleasing like any other high end device. But the biggest added point is the innovate use of camera.
Dual Camera - What about using both cameras at a same time? Strange, but it’s cool. It is a special app that let you use a front facing camera along with rear camera both at the same time.
Eraser – With eraser feature, you can erase unwanted background (other than your focus point) automatically.
Story Album – Every picture you take from the Galaxy S4 has some story behind it, this is what Story Album does. You also get an option to share the same on Facebook and Twitter. Samsung also gives you freedom to print out your beloved pictures.
Other heighted features are mentioned below-:
Air View – Basically, Air View feature to limited to Samsung native apps. The idea is rather simple, touch Galaxy S4 without using its touch screen (Touchless Gestures!)
S Health - This time around, Samsung is talking on number of health related apps found in the Google Play store. The company is highlighting device as your fitness meter, but you must need to buy compatible accessories recommended by tech vendor.
Smart Pause – Samsung is getting too much on Smart Pause feature. The smartphone tracks your eye movement and do actions accordingly. It would be a welcome change, but not revolutionary at all.
