So what is all the buzz about? Let’s covered some new features of the Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone:

  • My favourite feature is ‘Sound and Shot’. You can record a 9 seconds message attached to a photo and send it.
  • Galaxy S4 is stronger and slimmer than Galaxy SIII – light 130g and slim 7.9mm shape
  • 5-inch large screen with 441 PPI – stunning screen quality
  • The 13-megapixel rear camera boasts a ‘Dual Camera’ function that allows the use of front and rear cameras.
  • ‘Drama Shot’ offers 12 outstanding shooting modes
  • ‘S Translator’ provides translation in 10 languages which provides translation using text or voice translation.
  • ‘Air View’ allows users to hover with their fingers to preview the content of an email, image or video without having to open it.
  • ‘Air Gesture’ – change the music track, or a  web page, with a wave of your hand
  • ‘Samsung Hub’ allows users to search and purchase videos, games, books with one single sign in.
  • Galaxy S4 is equipped with 9 sensors
  • ‘S Health’ helps empower your life by keeping track of your exercise diary, food diary and sleep monitor.
  • ‘ Smart Pause’ enables you to control the screen by where you look. When you are watching a video, the video pauses when you look away then it stars right up again when you are looking directly back at it.
