I’ve never been a fan of the Apple iPhone. I currently have a Samsung Galaxy 3 smartphone and I’m damn happy with it. I am pretty excited about the Samsung Galaxy S4 that was announced by the Korean Electronics giant yesterday.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 has a 5 inch screen, a 1.9 GHz Quad Core Processor, a 13 megapixel back camera and a 2 megapixel front camera. The phone also supports a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels (with a 441 dpi pixel density) and 1080p HD video recording. It’s a bit thicker than the Apple Iphone 5, but the fact that it runs on Android makes it a better phone for me.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 uses its front-facing camera to detect if a user is looking away from the video they’re watching and automatically pauses playback. It also has Air View which allows users to scroll through pages with a wave of their hand and Floating Touch applies Samsung’s S-Pen tech to your fingers – it allows you to point and hover over an item to view it.
The phone’s Dual Shot function allows you to capture images from the front and rear cameras at the same time, the Eraser function captures multiple frames so that you can remove unwanted subjects, the Drama Shot function composites moving objects for action shots and the Sound & Shot feature captures five seconds of images and audio before the capture button is pressed. The Samsung Galaxy S4 also has a built-in infrared transmitter for controlling your TV and other devices in your entertainment center.

There you have it. The Samsung Galaxy S4 is a better phone that the Apple iPhone 5. The phone goes on sale in April this year in the USA. I am still very curious to see what other inventions Samsung is going to introduce in 2013.
