Samsung's 4th Symphony.....A Galaxy ahead!!

To think that Samsung has more Galaxies than the universe.....we sure hope that the Galaxy S4 is designed for other life forms!!! We present our review of the Samsung Galaxy S4

The Samsung Galaxy S4 picks up the same flagship "pebble" design only with a larger(and juicier) 5 inch Full HD(1080x1920) Super AMOLED touch screen!! Now that breaches the line between a phone, tablet and even a phablet!! Nevertheless, images are crisp, sharp and detailed though the colors appear saturated(a drawback of all AMOLED screens). There's a physical key at the bottom accompanied by the regular capacitive keys. The camera at the back is a 13 MP while it's buddy at the front is a 2 MP HD front-facing camera!! There is also a noise-cancellation microphone at the top of the device.

Samsung sticks to its polycarbonate plastic shell casing for the S4 which is light and durable. Though the disadvantage of this is that the Hyperglaze gloss tends to wear off and with time, the joints become a little squeaky. It doesn't affect the phone in anyway, yet it might discourage a few buyers.

That said, we now move on to the biggest hardware improvements of the Samsung Galaxy S4. The rumours were right- there is an Exynos 5 Octa-Core processor humming within the beast. Though it's not exactly 8 cores powering the device- A Quad-core 1.6 GHz Cortex A-15 powers the normal working of the phone(which is great for almost every demanding application in the present day scenario), while a 1.2 GHz Quad-core Cortex A-7 manages the battery of the phone which leads to a jaw-dropping 70% increase in battery life. The results of the device's performance on AnTuTu Benchmark are simply  remarkable. Take a look, this is what you get when you have the most advanced smartphone of the year!!

On the software end, you have Googles latest Android Jellybean OS(4.2.2) with HTML5 and Adobe Flash.You have the famous features such as SmartStay, All Share Cast, Pop-up Play along with the new Multi-Window and Smart Pause. This interesting feature allows you to pause a video when you look away from the screen using the front facing camera.

About the shooters, it seems that the standard of a good phone camera has increased from 8 MP to 13 MP. Pictures shot are clean with little amount of noise and artificial coloring and HD videos record at a smooth rate of 1080p@60fps. Night shots are a bit of an issue as always with smartphones. The front camera is ambient for making video calls without any drop in the frame rate.

With the release of the Samsung Galaxy S4, the price of the Galaxy S3 dropped to $515(US). Believe me, go get the S3 as fast as you can as it's the best in its class(after the S4!!!). The Samsung Galaxy S4 is currently priced at a whopping $775(US), which doesn't make it a great buy. The features are great, but it's just not worth the money. Wait for a half a year for the trickle-down effect to take place. The S4's price will drop to a decent level.
