As Apple’s profits fall for the first time in a decade, people are starting to look towards other smartphone manufacturers to find out why. One of which is Samsung, who launch their new Galaxy S4 this month describing it as being “the most sophisticated Galaxy yet”.
The phone – available in ‘Black Mist’ or ‘White Frost’ – boasts a larger screen than its predecessor the S3, cased in a smaller frame. The screen itself is full HD at 1920×1080, providing crisp detail and vibrant colours that will surely have Apple researching screen improvements for the iPhone 6.
The high spec screen is required to display the new and improved pictures produced by the now 13-megapixel camera – to put this into perspective the iPhone 5 has an 8-megapixel camera. In addition, the interface has changed to allow for improved functionality as well as additional features similar to those seen on the Galaxy Camera.
Samsung’s S4 works on the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system which is said to be the best Android system launched to date. The handset does have its own unique features away from the standard operating system such as the TouchWiz (Samsung’s own skin) which has been developed to allow increased customisation of menus and notifications.
Overall the Samsung Galaxy S4, available at retailers such as E2Save, has a wide range of unique features accompanied with an extremely powerful widescreen display – a résumé that could see the phone become the best in the market.
