Samsung Galaxy S4 is an incredible Android phone released in 2013, counting with a high performance Quad-Core processing unit speeding at 1.9 GHz, a 5" screen, and 2 cameras, a 13 MP back facing camera and a 2 megapixels front facing camera. Let's take a closer sight of what this phone offers to us.

Regarding its body design materials, this device is mainly manufactured with Polycarbonate. Being just 0.31 inches thick,the Samsung Galaxy S4 is slim and stilized. Whereas the Samsung Galaxy S4 is only 5.38" long, it still manages to pack a 5" screen. This phone feels much lighter than what one would think about a cellphone like this. Samsung made the Samsung Galaxy S4 in lots of color options, black, blue, red and white.

Samsung packed the S4 with an awesome 5-inches screen, and a 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution, providing this phone with a high level graphic quality. This screen uses Super AMOLED capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

Samsung decided to power this cellphone with an extremely powerful 1.9 gigahertz Quad-Core CPU, packed into a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 APQ8064T system chip with a big 2 GB of RAM. Graphic rendering usually eats a lot of CPU time, so the Samsung Galaxy S4 uses an extra 400 megahertz Adreno 320 GPU to take some work out of the processor. A nice point of this cellphone is its quite big 16 GB internal memory and a slot for an SD memory card, enough to store a couple hundred games and applications without any trouble.

This cellphone has wifi connectivity (which it can provide to other devices around, acting as a modem), LTE 4G fast data connection and also HSPA+ internet connection, that is a bit slower 4G network and fast 3G data connection, over HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This device works with a Micro SIM card for GSM carriers.

The S4 is equipped with two cameras, a 13 mega-pixels back camera and a 2 mega-pixels front camera. Though it's 13 megapixels may sound incredible the back camera has a very little 0.326797-inches sensor it takes darker pictures than you would expect. This cellphone can also film videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 frames per second. In addition, this cellphone's camera also counts with many useful characteristics: auto-focus, flash, digital image stabilization, smile detection shooting, face detection shooting, HDR mode and geo tagging.

This phone also comes with a wide range of great characteristics as Wireless charging compatibility, NFC (Near Field Communication), Infrared Transmitter, Bluetooth (enables communication with other bluetooth cellphones, computers and accessories) and GPS (Global Positioning System), and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

The S4 counts with an incredible 2600 mAh Li-Ion battery that provides this phone an extremely long battery duration.

Samsung is offering this phone for 130 dollars, which is quite the same as other similar cellphones. This phone is definitely the right choice if you want a gaming device, are an amateur photographer, want this cellphone mainly for social networks and internet browsing or need it for work.
