In this content Guest posts about "Samsung Galaxy S IV - In-Depth Review"
Samsung has formally unveiled the Samsung Galaxy S IV at an event in New York. It is expected that the S IV will be formally available for sale during the month of April this year. Initial indications show that for some time, Samsung will be touting the device as their flagship until they have something else to take its place. Indications are coming in suggesting that Samsung has plans to launch a mini version of Galaxy S IV in the immediate future, though there is no official word on that from the South Korean technology giant.
More than a Practical Phone it’s a Great Technology Demonstrator
Little you will object if anybody called it a marvel of our times. It not only has everything that your heart can desire, and even more that you will have no use for. Indications are that you will have to find a way to use them effectively. The learning curve to using Galaxy S IV may be narrow, but the learning curve to putting it to use may be steeper. More than the readymade uses, you will have to find uses for most of the features. That is certain for now.
You will be particularly fascinated by the Smart Pause, Smart Scroll, Air View…and on and on features. Samsung calls these and many other features ‘Life Companion”. Probably you may want to call it that way when you find some really great use for them. At least that is the impression attendees at the launch event got.
Top on Internals
Technically the Galaxy S IV smartphone has everything your heart can desire – 2 GB of RAM, HD AMOLED display, 5-inch screen play with a matching pixel rating of 441 per inch, and more than anything else the top 1920 x 1080 resolution for that perfect viewing pleasure. A first look at the gadget suggests that the display is indeed amazing by any standards with brilliant and true to nature color reproduction.
Two versions of the Galaxy S IV is due to hit the market – 32 GB and 64 GB with a 64 GB limit micro SD slot for removable memory. The battery is really powerful enough at 2600 mAH, but a more powerful one could have been included to keep with the other high features on the phone. The only reason why the designers choose not to go for a more powerful battery is probably that Samsung was more ambitious to keep both the weight and thickness down and use it as a selling point.
Great Additions…You Need to Find Uses However
The Samsung Galaxy S IV has 8 sensors in all and includes – accelerometer, gyrometer…and the newly included sensor for gesture and infrared LED remote control with humidity and temperature control features. It is a also very much apparent that Samsung wanted to put something really powerful inside as much as it has to the interior, notably the 1.9 GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor that was in the piece that shown at the launch.
It is also possible that the S IV smartphone intended for sale in some territories around the world may be fitted with 1.6 octa-core processor. The software part is taken care by Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean supported by the Samsung proprietary TouchWiz user interface. That the Galaxy S IV is aimed at the high end user is apparent from the fact that the smartphone is powered for use on 4G LTE network as well as 3G. In addition there is Wi-Fi, near field communication and Bluetooth 4.0. The camera you will find in the reverse is 13 megapixels and the one in the front 2 megapixels, and is central to Samsung’s selling point.
In appearance, touch and feel, there isn’t much of any difference between Galaxy S III and Galaxy S IV, save for the bigger screen and the ultra thinness of the latter. You may even think the two are the same unless you keep them side by side and examine them closer. However, feature wise there is indeed a big difference between the two with the S IV having Smart Scroll and Smart Pause, and Air View and Air Gesture.
Another important point to note is that you can use the touch screen with your gloves on, which you don’t find in most other phones of this class. Air View and Air Gesture are great, but can be a little clumsy to use. Your gestures may be more often misunderstood and can be really annoying.
If you don’t mind spending little more dollars for bells and whistles, Samsung Galaxy S IV is great. If what you want is features you can put to use, try something else.
