The power of S4, with massive space
Design and Configuration
If Samsung seeks perfection of design, with the S4 it appears close – a sleek and thin design, thinner bezel, well-positioned buttons and the signature S-series look combine to make this a work of art. Yet again the resolution has been improved, this time taking it to fullHD (1920 x 1080 pixels). Considering the 5 inches of Super AMOLED Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on which this plays out along with 16M colour depth and a stunning 441ppi pixel density, visuals can be nothing but awesome on the S4.
Below the hood is another record-breaker, an octa-core processing unit composed of two quad-core processors, one 1.6GHz the other 1.2GHz. The RAM supplied is equally impressive at 2GB, thus making any processing job child's play. Gamers can rejoice as the device comes with a PoweVR SGX544MP GPU.
Camera and Storage
Samsung's cameras are known for their performance, and the S4 gets among the best the company provides for smartphones. With 13MP of rear camera with fullHD recording capability, the S4 is a treat for shutterbugs. Equally impressive is the front camera with 2MP HD video recording capability.
With this model, Samsung takes internal storage to new heights, giving 64GB of internal memory, capable of carrying literally a galaxy inside. What's more, another 64GB can be added via microSD.
Connectivity and Battery
For all it's worth, a phone must have good connectivity, and Samsung hasn't forgotten that. 3G, Wi-Fi, DLNA, Bluetooth and microUSB all find space on this beauty. The company also includes Infrared for easy control of home appliances using the device.
For this naturally power hungry device, Samsung includes a 2600mAh battery.
Samsung's S-class has acquired a cult-following of its own, and for good reason. With the S4, this following is sure to grow, given the record-breaking features the company provides in almost every department, be it display, processing, camera or storage, making one wonder how far Samsung would go to achieve perfection. Even if you're not a fan of S-series, or even Samsung, this device will likely make you one.
