Samsung Galaxy S4 Life Companion; Everything You Should Know About Galaxy S4

After months of rumors and speculations, Samsung has finally announced it’s flagship smartphone for 2013- the Samsung Galaxy S4. The new smartphone was unveiled by Samsung Mobile Chief  JK Shin at an event in New York City and Shin announced that the Samsung Galaxy S4 would be available in about 150 countries all over the world via over 300 mobile operators. As We Reported Earlier About Samsung Galaxy S4 Feature, which Was Quite Right. Samsung Galaxy S4 Is Directly In Competition With HTC One, Blackberry 10, Sony Experia Z. As We Are Not Adding iPhone 5 in this List Because It has Crunched Him in the Feature, I think Only iPhone 5S Can Give Him a Tough Fight. Read More....

The smartphone is similar to what was leaked in all the rumors and sports a 5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display amounting to a pixel density of 441 pixels per inch and the display is protected by Gorilla Glass 3.

When talking about brute power, the Galaxy S 4 feels like a classic American muscle car with a 1.6GHz 8-core Exynos Octa 5 CPU and 2GB of RAM under its hood. There is nothing Korean about the fire under its belly. The US version of the smartphone is slightly different in terms of the chipset inside as it uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor instead of the Exynos. This is a far cry from the 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos 4412 Quad Cortex A9 processor on the Galaxy S III. Though at any given point of time only four cores will be used when performing a task, it is still some serious power in hand.

For shutterbugs, the Samsung Galaxy S4 comes with a 13 megapixel primary camera along with a 2 megapixel front camera and Samsung has included many new features to enhance the shooting abilities on the Samsung Galaxy S4. Samsung has crammed its cameras with a variety of software like Dual-Shot, Drama Shot, Cinema Shot, Sound Shot, Beauty Shot, Eraser and Story Album. It can also shoot 1080p video. Previously, the Galaxy S III had an 8-megapixel camera.

Running on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, the Samsung Galaxy S4 will come in storage options of 16/32/64 GB internal storage along with a micro-SD card slot for storage expansion by up to 64GB. Connectivity options on the smartphone would imclude Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, MHL 2.0 and IR LED. The galaxy S4 will come in both 3G and 4G LTE variants, which will vary by market. 

Housing a 2,600mAh battery with a micro-SIM card slot, the Samsung Galaxy S4 will come in Black Mist and White Frost color options and would go on sale by the end of April.

Samsung has created a spec sheet monster of sorts and the moment one reads its feature list one is overwhelmed with the amount of stuff Samsung has crammed in the device.
Dual-Shot - Dual shot is a feature in the camera of the Galaxy S 4 that activates both cameras and allows the users to create a picture-in-picture type result. The user can modulate the placement of the image in the small box and apply effects to them. This also works for video.

Sound Shot - The Sound Shot feature is similar to the Zoe camera feature in the HTC One. It allows the user to click an image with audio embedded in it.

Drama Shot - This feature allows the user to click 100 images in 4 seconds which in turn allows the user to create a collage.

Air Gesture - Air Gesture is a feature that allows the user to control the Galaxy S 4 with gestures. This feature comes in handy when the user is unable to touch the device, but still needs to control it.

Air View - Air View has basically been aped from the Galaxy Note II. This feature allows the user to hover his finger right above the display and control the device. Say the if one wants to modulate the playback of a movie or music. Air View on the Galaxy S 4 does not need the S-Pen and be used via the finger.

S-Translate - It allows the user to translate a spoken sentence into another language and it can also translate in text. This feature is available in 9 languages and currently Hindi is not part of the suite.

S-Health - The Galaxy S 4 is amongst the first devices to feature a thermometer and a pedometer. This comes to good use via S-Health which monitors the users movements, body temperature and daily habits. Samsung will also offer an accessory called the S-Band that will work via bluetooth with the S-Health app.

S-Travel- Samsung has tied up with Trip Advisor for an app that is pre-loaded on the Galaxy S 4. Not a lot has been revealed about the app, but presumably users will be able to book tickets from the app.

Knox - Samsung has embraced the Bring Your Own Device trend in the enterprise and it is taking BlackBerry head-on with Knox. It allows users to silo their personal content and professional content and give the phone a split personality of sorts.

Smart Scroll - Using Smart Scroll, users can scroll content on their phone without actually doing anything as the front camera is doing some face recognition antics to detect where you are actually looking and the user needs to tilt the phone to scroll.

Smart Pause - It automatically pauses content when the phone realizes the user is not looking at the display.

Group Play- Group Play allows users to share audio, video and pictorial content with fellow Galaxy S 4 users minus Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.

For the Samsung GALAXY S 4 there will be a Flipcover and S View Cover, a pouch, the Protective Cover +, the Samsung S band, even a game pad, a headset, a Battery Kit, a Herz.Rhythmus meter, Bluetooth Wage and probably a Wireless Charging Pad to provide wireless charging. As you see a variety of accessories for the Samsung GALAXY S 4.

Samsung says that there will be 3G and 4G versions of the device and later in the year it will even launch a TD-LTE version. The 16GB Model Comes For Whooping Price Tag Of Rs $244. In India It Will Be Priced Around 45,000. It Will Arrive In April in India.
