Samsung Galaxy S4
Those first impressions don’t last long though, as turn on the 5 inch 1080 x 1920 Super AMOLED display and you can’t help but be impressed by the bright, bold and pin sharp images it displays. At 441 pixels per inch it’s no surprise that everything looks crystal clear.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is a stunningly powerful handset too, with a 1.9 GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM, ensuring that almost nothing can slow it down.
Storage isn’t a problem for the handset either, as with a choice of 16, 32 or 64GB built in along with a micro SD card slot to boost that by up to 64GB it’s got more potential storage than most phones.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 runs Android 4.2.2 and has a very good 13 megapixel camera, alongside a 2 megapixel front facing camera and the ability to shoot 1080p video at 30fps. It also supports a variety of different shooting modes such as HDR and panorama.
Highlights of the phone include eye tracking technology, which ensures the screen will never turn off when you’re looking at it and ‘Air Gesture’ which lets you navigate the phone by hovering your finger above it rather than actually touching the screen.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 has a large 2600 mAh battery for long battery life and supports Ultrafast 3G, 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and infrared.
