The Galaxy S4 I9500 has everything you’d expect on a high-end smart phone coming out in today’s era, it poses a more improved S3 featuring a slimmer but more powerful device; it’s exactly what you’d expect by stretching the hardware specs and features of S3 a little further without compromising on areas that count. It’s the kind of phone you’d die for if performance has a tyrannical preference on your smart phone’s must haves. I can’t exactly single out anything odd on this device beyond what looks like a gimmicky feature overload – it’s not like we’d need all the functionalities squeezed therein; in fact, I’d prefer just having a stable and efficient hardware on it than have some unnecessary software that’ll probably never use occupy that precious space and compromise on performance speed, that’s just me and contrary opinions are most welcomed.
Big has become a standard trend for upcoming devices, the Galaxy S4 I9500 is no exception – with a super 5.0inch Amoled display screen that features a gigantic 1080×1920 pixels screen resolution, we can’t afford to complain. Something we ought to point out on the current trend leading to even bigger panels is screen resolution; while there are phablets with even bigger displays, not many have managed to maintain what we’d call a superb resolution. Pixels per inch (PPI) is exactly one of those items I scan keenly before purchasing a smart phone, it’s what distinguishes a crisp display from a blurry pixilated one. Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500 poses the most detail resolution we’ve seen this year just like a high definition television at full HD (1080p) and in this case 441ppi, it’s even more detailed than the iPhone 5 despite a bigger screen – meaning you’ll love watching videos and TV shows on this gadget. Scrolling though web-pages should be a breeze and going through your lovely gallery a pleasant experience.
Under the hood are two snappier quad-core processors (8 cores in total to be precise) though it depends with your location as some are shipped with one quad-core instead of two – that’s massive strength to process any Android apps out there. On the back side is a mighty 13.0 Megapixels camera that will record HD videos and Images as well as an LED flash to counter those dark areas. Beyond fancy options you’d likely get on any smart phone out-there to capture shots as you’d like – there are a few pleasant additions such as an animated gif where only one item moves while the background stays intact, a drama shot feature that encompasses numerous pictures into a single short moving shot, in-between a photo and a video and an erase feature that lets you delete unwanted visitors from the photo. Other features include the ability to scroll down or up pages by moving your eyes and starting or pausing videos by blinking. You can also air browse by waving your hand over the phone as well as moving from one photo to the next inside the gallery by moving backwards or forward.
