You can take quality features using its rear camera that comes with 13 megapixel but its 2 megapixel from shooter camera can also capture quality photos, videos and best for chatting. It comes with 1080 video recording capabilities with an easy navigation interface with similar features as the Galaxy Camera on the market.

{Software, Operating System and the Good Stuffs}

The S4 is powered by the latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. This empowers the Samsung GS4 with a Swiftkey feature. The Qualcomm Snapdragon on a 1.9 quad core processor makes the Galaxy S4 one of the fastest running Android Smartphone in the industry to date. It will run on 2GB RAM that will make the phone run faster even while multitasking. The storage capacity is on microSD from 16, 32 and 64 GB.

{New Enticing Apps}

One of the most appealing new features of the Samsung Galaxy S4 is the Air View where you can hover over an application and you get a preview of your planner, email message, calendar, photo, or video. Another embedded feature is the Air Gesture where with just a wave of your hand you can simply control the mobile behavior without the need to hold it. Thus, scroll up a web page up and down or receive a call with just a swipe of your hand over the device. A great feature you can use while driving.

Samsung introduces a technology called Samsung Smart Pause which others misconstrued as giving the user an ability to control the phone using the eyes when in fact it only detects head movement through a sensor on the front camera that stops the LCD from dimming when the head is directly facing it. Another best application with the S4 is the Group Play that allows you to enjoy games and music with others even without a Wifi or 3G connection.

The S Translator is the new application in the S4 generations that supports nine languages initially and rumored to be getting an upgrade with more languages soon. Its Optical Reader can turn an information from the format of digital into analog and a business card into your contacts. The ChatOn feature is now available in VoIP app that supports a three-way screen share, video calls, and annotations. For the health buffs, the S Health Apps integrate some health-related gadgets that can monitor your blood glucose and other more health gadgets together with the ever famous pedometer that tracks down your physical activities.
