Samsung Galaxy S4 is a much-awaited android phone. The phone has many features, which makes it an attractive by for all genres of consumers.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Design and Build Quality

Galaxy S4 is a beautiful looking phone. However, the phone does not fit in the grip easily and careful handling is required when holding long conversations. The phone does not over heat even with long use. The battery of the phone will last you for about a day with full charge. However if you love playing games then the battery will not last you for long.

User Interface and Comfort to Use Samsung Galaxy S4

Samsung Galaxy S4 i9500 comes with a super-fast Octa-Core processor, comprising of 1.6 GHz Quad, 1.2 GHz Quad processors, and a massive 2GB of RAM. The phone has enough power to play any game and app that you throw its way. There is no lag in moving between the apps or checking your email. The phone responds as soon as you touch it. The phone’s software is optimized for touch. Whether you are wearing gloves or are bare handed the touch screen will recognize your touch. The phone UI also has the capacity to adjust screen brightness and sound according to the environment. The above mentioned features make it very easy to use.

You can create albums using the story album feature on the phone. Another interesting feature is the Erase feature that removes the unwanted people from the picture.

A GPS with preloaded Google Maps comes with the phone. Navigation features such as trip adviser and voice drive make it very easy to use the GPS.

Distinctive Features of Samsung Galaxy S4

The list of distinctive features of the phone is endless but we loved the Air view and smart pause ability. If you are not doing anything, the phone will automatically lock by sensing inactivity.

Value for Money

The phone is priced at around INR 40000 (approx., may vary) in the Indian Market.

Verdict

We would rate this phone a 4.6 stars out of 5.
