It features expandable storage space, a removable battery and is compatible with most audio and video formats. All the wonderful features make Galaxy S4 the most powerful smart phone in the world.

It has a parade of camera tricks that pack action shots into one scene, dual shot by using both front and back cameras and also film a video in slow motion. S4 offers a simple and new approach from ordinary touch with Air view and Air gesture features. With the help of Air view you can save time by having a quick preview without having to open the entire content.

It supports features like quick glance, air jump, air browse, air move, air call accept etc. Galaxy S4 can be wirelessly connected with multiple S4 phones to play games, listen to music or share photos and documents. A unique feature of Smart Pause knows what you’re doing and intuitively moves along with youautomatically scrolling up or down emails or websites when you tilt the phone from one side to another. It pauses whenever you look away and resumes from where you left off when you look back at the screen again. The S4 also features S Health, S Translator, Chat ON, Samsung Hub, Home Sync, Adapt Display and Sound etc.

Apart from all the various apps and smart features, the S4 does have its own limitations. It was noticed that the device would heat up or freeze from time to time and took considerably more time to start-up or load an app when compared to other smart phones in the market. Also, the phone was not very handy for typing messages as the keys were little awkward. The pictures taken in low light were not very sharp and clear as expected for its high quality HD camera feature. Some other issues like lousy speaker sound or screen cracking up easily were also major concerns. It is also suggested that the phone needs some more battery backup due to its large display and resolution.

Overall, the Samsung S4 is a perfect companion to make your life simpler and fun. Each feature is designed to simplify and take care of your daily life. The Galaxy S4 is a highly recommended smart phone for its wide full HD super AMOLED screen. It fits perfectly within a slim poly-carbonate body, making it the lightest and most sophisticated Smart Phone.
