Samsung Galaxy S4 is a very high-end Android phone released some years ago, provisioned with an exceptional Quad-Core processor running at 1.9 GHz, a quite big 5" multi-touch screen, a 13 megapixels back-facing camera and a 2 MP front facing camera. Let's take a deeper sight of what this cellphone can give us.
Samsung is offering the S4 in a lot of color variations like black, blue, red and white. Regarding its materials, this phone is mostly made with Polycarbonate. Being just 0.31 inches thick,the Samsung Galaxy S4 is very slim and practical. This device is just 5.38 inches long, but it still manages to hold a 5" display. Samsung made a really good optimization job making this phone weight only 4.59 oz.
Samsung equipped this device with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 APQ8064T system chip, packing an exceptional 1.9 gigahertz Quad-Core processor with a huge 2 GB of RAM. Collaborating with graphic intensive applications, the S4 also has a 400 megahertz Adreno 320 graphics processing unit. A key aspect of this cellphone is its big 64 GB internal memory and an SD memory slot, which allows you to store lots of apps, games, pictures and videos without worrying about running out of space.
This phone has a beautiful 5-inches display with a 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution, giving this phone a great graphic quality. Its display uses Super AMOLED capacitive technology, and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.
The S4 has two cameras, a 13 MP back camera and a 2 megapixels front side camera. Although it's 13 mega-pixels may seem amazing the back camera has a small 0.326797-inches sensor which makes photos be less detailed and darker than you would expect. It also captures videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 fps. This device also counts with multiple interesting characteristics like auto-focus, flash, face detection shooting, digital image stabilization, HDR mode, smile detection shooting and geo tagging.
This phone features a 2600 mAh high capacity Li-Ion replaceable battery that can keep it running for several hours and even reach the end of the day without charging it at all.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 provides WiFi connection (which can be shared with other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G LTE high speed data connection and also HSPA+ internet connection, a slower 4G variation or fast 3G connectivity, over HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This cellphone works with a Micro SIM card to connect to GSM networks.
This device also includes many interesting features like Bluetooth, GPS (Global Positioning System), Infrared Transmitter and NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your cellphone close to another NFC device or tag), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.
Samsung is offering this device for only 135 dollars, which is a really low price comparing with similar phones.
