Samsung Galaxy S4 Operating System Review

The next version of the Google Android, the 5.0 Key Lime Pie is not in the offing at least till May. However, Samsung rolled out the Jelly Bean update for the other devices on the Galaxy series, so we can expect the Galaxy S4 to get the Key Lime Pie when the operating system is out.
The Android Jelly Bean OS features a host of new improvements and addons, the best of it being the Google Now app which is Android alternative to the iOS Siri.

The device will also feature many Samsung features like the customized TouchWiz interface that will offer an enhanced viewing experience with upbeat options. Samsung has also added a host of new software enhancements such as gestures and a bigger notification tray that is loaded with toggle options. On the Settings tab,  users can turn settings on and off more easily. Also, new toggles have been added for call blocking more and eye tracking gestures.

There are other functional tools such as the multiview mode that allows users to split screen for multi tasking and the S Translator Tool which can be embedded into email and ChatOn messenger. The ChatOn app also adds three way video calling, screen sharing and video calls that use both cameras.

There is the Group Play feature that allows photo, music or video sharing, connect via NFC or Bluetooth, and even engage in multi player games. There are also features such as Group Play games, Gun Bros 2 and Asphalt 7 that have been specifically adapted for this device.
