The predecessor, Galaxy S3, was quite a beast, but what about the S4, will it be able to meet the growing demands that high-end smartphone users have come to expect in recent years?
Samsung Galaxy S4 comes in a very similar package to the S3 and has similar weight as well. Chassis is also the same, so yes, it unfortunately will have the “plastic’y” feel to it, but it will also feel solid built and be very slim as well. The touch screen has received an upgrade compared to S3, now with 4.99” and a whopping 441 pixels per inch compared to S3’s 4.8” and 306 pixels density. For comparison, iPhone 5’s Retina display is 4” with 326 pixels per inch.
The rear camera is 13 megapixels and the front camera is 2 megapixel and you can even record dual video, which means you record in two directions at once.
Although the S4 is probably more like an evolution than a revolution, compared to the S3, it’s hard to find anything that S4 doesn’t do better than S3 does, not to mention 4G (LTE) network support.
Samsung Galaxy S4 is out on April 26th on all major networks and it can already be pre-ordered today from Carphone Warehouse in the UK. Actually, if you pre-order Samsung Galaxy S4 at Carphone Warehouse before April 26th and go with the pay monthly, you will get an accessory bundle worth £79.96 on top of your purchase, consisting of an in-car charger, screen protector and Samsung Galaxy S4 case.
Although I’m an iPhone user, I also consider myself a little bit of a tech geek, so I’ll have to admit that this new Galaxy S4 does interest me quite a bit. I think it has the potential to be “king of smartphones”, at least for a little while. What do you think?
