We were all impatient to see the new star of Samsung, the Samsung Galaxy S IV. The outstanding success of Galaxy S3 put many of us in the position of waiting the Galaxy S4 to be revealed before deciding which would be our choice for the next best friend phone ever! Samsung is now in the top of Android world and mainly thanks to the Galaxy series, which debuted in 2010 with the very first Samsung Galaxy S. Since than, the Seoul-based company (founded by Lee Byung-Chull in 1938) has continually improved the cutting edge technology, design, performance and premium features of its phones, being the company who first introduced the term of “smartphone” through Samsung Star model in 2009.

Samsung Galaxy S4 was officially revealed on March 14 at the “Unpacked Event” which took place in New York at Radio City Music Hall and was presented by JK Shin, Samsung’s head of mobile communications. Unlike the previous years the competitive environment of the Android world has bring to surface tough, powerful competitors for the S4 and we’re talking here about HTC One and Sony Xperia Z.
As rumours about S4 were mostly accurate, we already have a general idea of the device capability.  So let’s take a closer look on Galaxy S4 design, performance and feature and find out which are the chances for this device to go in the top of Android devices.

Design

The design didn’t come with such a big surprise as its fans were expecting, being very similar and almost unchanged comparing to Galaxy S3. Despite the considerable dimensions, the design it’s not bad, it feels very lightweight and confortable to hold. The plastic case is the same used for Galax S3 or at least it fells just the same although the S4 is smaller and lighter with dimensions of 136.6 x 69.8 x 7.9mm. We give a big plus for the design of HTC One at this chapter. HTC is also being more provocative and aggressive in promoting its flagship then ever before. While the unveiling event for the S4, HTC UK even tweeted with the following message to Samsung UK: “ “Plastic is not fantastic, my friend “. HTC One is full metal and it feels and looks incredible cool indeed.

Screen

Samsung Galaxy S4 has an incredible sharped, 5″ full HD super AMOLED display with a diagonal measuring 5 inches, 1080 x 1920 pixels, with a pixel density of 441 ppi and off course protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. With such a quality screen the way is open for amazing multimedia experiences as images, video and games.

Features

The S4 is equipped with a new generation processor, which would be either a Samsung Exynos 5, or a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, depending on the region. Apparently in the US, the S4 will feature a 1.9GHz Quad Core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and other markets will get a 1.6Ghz Exynos 5 octa-core processor. The device will feature 2 GB of RAM, 16, 32 or 64 GB internal storage and a removable 2,600 mAh battery, which certainly it’ caring the device through the day. Removable battery and Micro SD card seem to be SIV advantages over HTC ONE and Sony Xperia Z.

Samsung Galaxy S4 camera has a 13MP sensor on the back capable of autofocus, touch focus, face detection, auto night detection and anti shake image stabilization and a new functionality called Dual Shot. Dual Shot lets you snap shots with both the front and back cameras and integrates them into a single scene. This sensor can take over 100 shots in 4 seconds and selects the more accurate one in order to create a single best frame. Other camera features are Eraser mode and Cinema mode we’ve also seen on Nokia Lumia phones recently. The Cinema Mode lets you shoot videos and than choose the part in the video that you want to keep while the background is moving.

These all being said we’re waiting to have our hands on the device as we thing Samsung Galaxy S4 has all chances to be the best Android smartphone of the year.
