Evolutionary update of a bestseller. Samsung managed to sell more than 40 million copies of the Galaxy S III. Now the successor has been released, set to trump the flagship of 2012. The Galaxy S4 ships with a Full HD Super AMOLED display, a quad-core CPU and all kinds of gimmicky features. But is this enough to defend the top spot?
Samsung Galaxy S5 vs Galaxy S4 comparison video review: Should you upgrade?

iPhone 5S vs Nexus 5 vs Galaxy S4 head-to-head review
Source: V3.co.uk English
Having won three of our seven rounds the Apple iPhone 5S has taken the prize. While the S4 and Nexus 5 are still very good phones in their own right and offer better value for money, the iPhone 5S has a sturdier build, features a superior camera and comes loaded with improved security software. But with the S4's lifecycle close to its end and the newer Samsung Galaxy S5 expected to make its debut in the next few months, this could change sooner rather than later.

100% Samsung Galaxy S4 review
Source: Expert Reviews English
It's hard to find chinks the S4's general excellence. The storage is measly and the mono speaker and lack of FM radio may be a downer for some, but despite these it's still a lot of phone for your money. We shopped around and the best deal we saw was a free handset for £31 a month with unlimited minutes, texts and 500MB of mobile data. Even considering that, the S4 is a lot of smartphone for your money today. The lack of a big.LITTLE processor is a shame, as it looks to be a great idea, but even without it the S4 embodies that phrase rather nicely. The screen is bigger than that on the HTC One, the battery is bigger than the HTC One's or the one in the Sony Xperia Z, yet the phone itself is slightly smaller than either. Simply put, Samsung has squeezed more into less - and that's why it wins it our Ultimate award.

Having won four of our six categories the iPhone 5S has won the 2013 Apple vs Samsung match. While the iPhone 5S doesn't have as good a screen as the Samsung Galaxy S4 it does feature a significantly better camera, longer battery life, more robust security features and, for those who can afford it, increased storage options.

Make no mistake - the Samsung Galaxy S4 is far, far more than a Galaxy S3 'S' - Samsung may be copying Apple according to some people, but it's not as brazen as the Cupertino brand in flogging the exact same design with a slightly uprated processor and calling it a new phone. Although we will admit, it's not as good overall as the HTC One, especially when you factor in the design. But there's no doubt Samsung will have to make a big step forward to keep users interested with the Galaxy S5, but for now we love the S4 and would be proud to have it in our pocket.

Samsung Galaxy S4
Source: Hardware Canucks English
When it comes to the world of Android, it’s pretty clear that Samsung and the Galaxy S line have taken hold of the baton and are sprinting towards the horizon. Part of this success is due to the fact that they always use cutting-edge hardware, but also because Samsung is a company that takes the “everything but the kitchen sink” adage seriously when it comes to features.

There is no doubt that the Galaxy S4 is one of the best Android handsets on the market today. While we may not like some of the inbuilt Samsung software, which at times feels more like bloatware than truly useful additions to the Android experience, the hardware and design of the phone is simply superb. Ultimately it isn’t quite enough to overtake the HTC One as our favoured handset, but it is well worth a look, especially if you value Samsung’s choice of removable battery. A great smartphone, even if it doesn’t take the crown of greatest smartphone.

Google Play Edition: Galaxy S 4 and HTC One Review
Source: Slashgear English
Android enthusiasts can be a demanding group. The call for pure-Android versions of flagships other than the Nexus range has been a consistent one, and it will be interesting to see how many Google Play Edition phones actually get bought. Adding to the muddle is the pricing: the HTC comes in at $599, the Samsung more expensive again at $649. What the two Google Play Edition phones offer is a compromise somewhere in-between. The freedom of pure Android and the freshness and undeniable appeal of flagship hardware. It’s a compromise that comes at a cost, and it’s one with the risk of still relying on manufacturers for new software rather than getting it straight from Google, but if your wallet is deep enough then the pure Android experience, liberation from carrier subsidies, and top-tier specifications make them each excellent, if niche, options.

Although technically a draw, with both phones winning 3.5 rounds, we don't want to sit on the fence after putting the phones through their paces in so much detail. So we're awarding the crown to the S4, as it won in the more important battles. The phone boasts a better camera, slightly faster performance and a clearer display than its Apple competitor. It was a close call, as despite being almost a year old the Apple iPhone still boasts superior build quality, more intuitive and bloatware-free software, and a slightly better battery life than the Galaxy S4. Because of this we're not convinced the S4 will be able to pull off the same feat when facing its real challenger, the next Apple iPhone.

Samsung Galaxy S4 vs Galaxy S3 head-to-head review
Source: V3.co.uk English
The S4 is a better phone than the Galaxy S3, featuring a better camera and screen, slightly better performance and a few novel software perks not included on its predecessor. But the S3 is still a very good phone, with its screen, camera and performance remaining vastly superior to many newer smartphones from rival manufacturers, even a year after release meaning that for S3 owners, there's little reason to rush out and upgrade now to the S4. Additionally, with the S4 now out, the S3's price has drastically plummeted. On a few third-party marketplaces like Amazon, we've seen a SIM-free version of the 16GB S3 selling for as little as £300, which is an absolute steal for any smartphone buyer not concerned about having the latest phone available.

The S4 offers a gorgeous screen, superb camera, and great multimedia performance. On the other hand, it has a done-to-death design. The build quality leaves a lot to be desired. The UI is cluttered, and despite having an extremely powerful octa-core CPU, the phone does lag in certain tasks. If you're split between HTC One and S4, I'd wholeheartedly recommend the HTC One as it's a much better smartphone save for the mediocre camera. But if camera and screen quality are at the forefront of your requirement list, there's none better then the GALAXY S4.

We now know the Galaxy S4 looks quite akin to the Galaxy S3 in design so therefore can't really be mistaken for the iPhone 5. We'll let you decide which you think is more attractive since it's down to personal taste. What is worth pointing out is that the Galaxy S4 uses a largely plastic build with a removable cover while the iPhone 5 is made from glass and aluminium. This is the key difference for us and where the iPhone 5 comes out distinctly on top.

The Galaxy S4 looks similar to the Galaxy S3 in design: it's pretty different to the BlackBerry Z10, which from the front at least looks like a squarer iPhone 5. The Galaxy S4 is rounded and pebble-like, the BlackBerry Z10 a thin-and-stylish rectangular slab of black. The Galaxy S4 is mostly plastic with a removable cover, while the Z10's front is almost all black, but it also has a thin plastic removable cover.

As we type this we have the SGS3 and the SGS4 on our desk. While, superficially, there's really not a lot of difference between the two, to hold, they couldn't feel more different. We really like the new, more square-feeling SGS4. At the back, we prefer the SGS3 aesthetically, although the case design of the new phone is nicer - albeit still plastic. As always, the sign of a good gadget is one that we don't want to give back. Our review SGS4 is being returned tomorrow, and the truth is that we're really going to miss it. It is, therefore, a product we heartily commend.

That said, the styling leaves me cold, the plastic body looks and feels a bit cheap when compared to the opposition, and TouchWiz really is a bit of an aesthetic shambles compared to Jelly Bean’s stock UI.

Samsung has been much derided for still persisting with plastic for the Galaxy S4. Particularly when HTC laid its cards on the table with that gorgeous One, all dressed in the aluminum. However, it is important to keep in mind that with the same plastic finish, the Galaxy S III sold like crazy. For anyone who wishes to buy one of these two phones, it will eventually come down to which one you like better. Or the sense of familiarity, in case you are upgrading from an existing Samsung or HTC phone. The performance of both phones is very good, and absolutely neck and neck.

Source: Tech2.in.com English
At Rs 41,500, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is easily the best Android in the market – and the most powerful smartphone by a mile. Samsung seems to have taken criticisms about the S3 in its stride, as the S4 easily irons out most of the chinks found in the S3’s armour with a fresh coat of polish. The phone looks a lot more refined and premium than its predecessor and the whole hullabaloo about the plastic chassis is much ado about nothing. This is not to say it’s as good as the HTC One’s industrial design, but calling it cheap would be an exaggeration. Its build is miles ahead of the S3 and so are the ergonomics. Even if you discount the gimmicky gesture support, the S4 still beats the One in almost every department. It has a larger display, better audio quality for headphones, better battery life and a better camera with more features. The One trumps the S4 in terms of chassis build, much better speakers for alerts and media playback, and a better implementation for the similar suite of camera features (Zoe mode).

Contrary to our original expectations, the Octa-core GS4 isn't significantly faster or better than its Snapdragon sibling. Sure, it offers a small advantage in overall processor performance, but the difference isn't as obvious as we thought it would be.

Summing up, the Galaxy S4 is a very nice phone, featuring a brilliantly crisp display, lightning-fast performance, an above average camera and selection of useful productivity apps and services. However these inherent benefits are let down by poor build quality, needless Touchwiz bloatware and a less than stellar battery life. The S4 is currently a reasonable, but not great choice for business users – though this may change when Samsung launches its Knox security service later this year.

Comment

Model:

One of the current top choices in Android smartphones around the world, the Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9505, features the best of everything that the current smartphone market has to offer. The 5 inch screen with fullHD is sprawling and gorgeous, and the 13 megapixel camera is top of the line. The great camera is supported by software that provides fun features to enjoy with friends. Sound & Shot is one good example, allowing the user to record and attach a sound clip to photos. One of the downfalls of this great device is the frustratingly long start up time for the camera, which can take from 2 – 4 seconds. Paired with the short battery life and the cheap plastic feel of the body, it may start to seem like it may not be the best choice when compared to competitors.

On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9505 manages to keep its price competitive, and while the body feels cheap, it looks great and the weight is lower than other comparable devices'. The phone is packed with unique features that feel like the future is here. One such feature - Air Gestures allows the user to control the phone by waving your hand above the sensor. Like most new technologies, these features do not work as well as they should and are mostly enjoyable for their novelty value. The overall experience of using the phone is made pleasant with the quad-core processor being able to handle tasks smoothly. Make no mistake, the Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9505 may not be perfect, but it is a great phone, and is one of the best options on the market.
