The Samsung Galaxy S4 may not be the newest flagship in town but it sure is one of the phones that are not going anywhere soon. Buyers can stilly this phone and experience some great features without having to use a lot in terms of money. The S4 has stood the test of time and is sure to be around for a few years to come. So what makes this phone so great?
The phone has a 1920 by 1080 pixel, super AMOLED, five inch display. What this means is that the screen is HD and provides clear images and viewing for games and videos among other things. It has a Quad core processor which is pretty fast. Samsung continues to provide new software updates for the Samsung Galaxy S4, which helps in keeping up with functioning as technology evolves. The handset runs on Android 4.4 KitKat and there is now an option to upgrade to the Android 5.0 Lollipop for the handset. To add to this, the camera has a 13 MP primary camera and internal memory of 16 GB that is expandable through a card slot. The Samsung Galaxy S4 supports 4G, has Bluetooth 4.0 and supports NFC which is an awesome feature.
The faux metal body makes the battery removable, unlike in some other models and steps away from the S3 body which made the phone feel a bit cheap for a Galaxy phone.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 has a couple of unique characteristics that would make one choose it over other phones. It is smaller and lighter than its predecessors, that is, the S5 and the S6. It weighs 130 grams and is 8 mm thick. For anyone who does not like a bulky or a huge phone then this is the better options. It also has the NFC feature which is pretty sweet for a phone that is not the latest in the market. It allows you to automate some changes that you normally make on your phone when you leave or enter a certain place such as the home, office or even your car.
In addition to these features, the S4 user has a wide range of accessories to choose from such as phone cases. These allow the user to protect the phone from damage. It also has a wide variety of apps and games that are compatible and readily available on the Android app store.
There are newer models in the market, that is, S5, S6, S6 edge and the S7 which is rumored to be available soon. This phone offers a step up in innovation and so those who prefer to have the latest in technology should go for that. The phone also has some user interface glitches, although they are mild.
For about $300 to $350 one can get a Samsung Galaxy S4. This is a good price, quite cheap actually, for a Galaxy handset. This is low compared to the $500 S6.
