Samsung Galaxy S4 was Samsung’s flagship smartphone for 2013 and the predecessor to the Samsung Galaxy S5. Samsung Galaxy S4 looks a lot like the Galaxy S3, but with a bigger 5.0-inch display and more powerful hardware. It features a brilliant 5.0-inch full HD Super AMOLED display, a 13MP camera, and a number of unique software features for differentiation.
A High Performance Smartphone
Samsung Galaxy S4 comes in a sleek design. It is slimmer than the Galaxy S3 and also slightly lighter. Despite having a bigger display the Galaxy S4 is slightly smaller than the S3. The bigger display was achieved by reducing the size of the bezel, accommodating a larger display in about the same area.
Depending on your region, the Samsung Galaxy S4 will feature either 1.6GHz octa-core processor or a 1.9GHz quad-core processor. It runs the latest version of Jelly Bean (Android 4.2.2). Samsung Galaxy S3 comes with 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB built-in storage with a microSD slot that supports up to 64GB memory card.
Innovative Software for Differentiation
Samsung has bundled a number of unique software to help it differentiate its Android offering from the rest of the Android crowd. Samsung Galaxy S4 comes with an eye tracking feature that tracks whether you’re looking at the screen and what part of the screen you are looking at.
For example, if you are watching a video on your Galaxy S4 and look away (may be to see what is happening around you), the video will pause and will resume once you start looking at the phone again (Smart Pause). You can also scroll up or down by looking up or down the screen (Smart Scroll).
Displays & Camera
Samsung Galaxy S4 features a 5.0-inch Super AMOLED display. This is larger than the 4.8-inch display on the Galaxy S3. The display offers a stunning view with full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution (441ppi). The display is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3, which is stronger and more resistant to scratch and cracks.
Samsung Galaxy S4 features a 13 megapixels camera with full HD (1080p) video recording capability. The camera comes with all the bells and whistle: autofocus, face detection, HDR, smile detection, geotagging, and LED Flash. Just like the Galaxy S3, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is capable of taking photos and at the same time recording videos. It features a 2MP front facing camera with full HD video recording. The camera comes with some cool features.
For example, if someone walks into a shot while you are taking a photo. Instead of retaking the photo, the Samsung Galaxy S4 allows you erase the intruder, by deleting the frame(s) with the intruder in it. This is possible because the Samsung Galaxy S4 takes series of photos with each press of the button.
