Samsung annouced the GALAXY S4.The company unveiled the Galaxy S4 amidst much fanfare and did not disappoint in terms of upping the game in terms of hardware specifictions, which included an octa-core processor and a big bright high-definition screen.It also endowed the phone with some unique 'smart' features and added all sorts of sensors and motion detection controls.
The new Samsung GALAXY S4 helps bring us closer and captures those fun moments when we are together. Each feature was designed to simplify our daily lives. Furthermore, it cares enough to monitor our health and well-being. To put it simply, the Samsung GALAXY S4 is there for you.
.The phone is built from polycarbonate(read plastic) materials and doesn't feel alluring when compared to the likes of the iPhone 5 and HTC One.
The phone is available in two colours - Black Mist and White Frost, and we got a Black Mist phone as our reveiw unit. The phone doesn,t feel bulky and for a device that packs in a 5-inch screen, the Galaxy S4 feels more like a phone and less like a Phablet thanks to its narrow frame and thinner bezel.
The front of the phone still features a physical Home button and two capacitive touch buttons for Menu and Back controls. The back of the phone features the 13-megapixel-camera lens, with the LED flash right below it. You see a power button on the right side of the phone , volume rocker on the left, a 3.5mm headset jack and Infrared receiver on the top and Micro-USB port at the bottom. The SIM card, microSD card slot, NFC module and battery are hidden inside.
The Galaxy S4 comes with a 5-inch full-HD Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080x1920 pixels packing 441 pixels per inch. AMOLED dislays are usually known to render a little over-satuarated colour, Samsung offers what it calls, Adapt Display, to optimise colours according to ambient light conditions.You can choose between four manual modes (Dynamic, Standard, Professional Photo and Movie) and seven automatic modes if you select the Adapt Display option.
With 7 automatic modes and 4 manual modes, the Samsung GALAXY S4 provides the optimal viewing experience. See your favourite videos, games, books and emails displayed with amazing colour quality. Get the perfect and optimised view with the Samsung GALAXY S4.
The incredibly-wide FULL HD Super AMOLED screen fits perfectly within an extraordinarily slim bezel that’s encased in a special polycarbonate body, making this the lightest and most sophisticated GALAXY yet.
The Galaxy S4 features a 13-megapixel rear camera that takes great shots in day light and artificial light. We found that pictures clicked with the phone had good amount of detail and looked very close to life with accurate colour reproduction.
Two cameras, one extraordinary photo. Capture the ‘I was there’ moments of your life by simultaneously shooting with the front and rear cameras.

It has 2GB RAM onboard, and a PowerVR SGX 544MP chip for processing graphics. Our review unit had 16GB of expandable internal storage out of which 8.89GB was available for our use.
