It has been a while that we know Samsung going to launch their next generation of phone which is the 4th generation of Series that are now available in the market which is Samsung Galaxy S4. I was lucky enough to get hold of one unit and tried it myself over the past 2 weeks. Along with their new Tag line Life Companion seems to be a perfect fit into our new technology era lifestyle. Why is that so? This phone is design in a way to make it a perfect companion for us to access into things with just a few touches away.

s4 (1)

 This is what I have gotten on my hand with a new unit of Galaxy S4 and unboxing it.

s4 (2)

 Comes with a quick guide, charger, power adapter and the phone itself.

s4 (3)

This new S4 stand at its advantage with its super light weight that it almost doesnt felt like taking a phone. One of the most lightest phone I have had on my palm so far that weight 130g. Running on OS Android (4.2.2) on its 5.0 Super Amoled screen. Running on Quad core processor with build in 16 GB and 13 megapixel camera.

s4 (4)

 Size is the same as S3 just that the screen is slightly bigger with its dimension 5.38 x 2.75 x 0.31 inches (136.6 x 69.8 x 7.9 mm)

s4 (5)

Design in a way that all the short cut key are easy access with one single finger sliding down the screen you will have the basic and as the picture above is the advance features screen just by sliding with 2 fingers down.

s4 (6)

Lets have some fun with one of their new features Group Play. That enable ues to play game/ photo/ file sharing and evn combine the rest of the S4 user phone to become a powerfull sound system. Impressive. Sound quality its above my expectation.

The new camera mode in it just make the pictures more interesting, with a features that you can capture on the scene by taking a few shots then you froze it and make some of the area or people you want it to move. Tadaaaa . .. . .  Wilson is pause, Wilee and her friend is moving including the guy behind.. hehe

s4 (7)

NExt fun mode is the camera that have dual Shot function that you wont miss any moments with this. It can capture both ways with many fun frame to choose on. Captures with two cameras in one extraordinary photo. just like above. Another cool features they have is Sound & Shot with capturing a picture and we are able to record about 8 seconds sound in it that makes the picture more alive.

s4 (8)

 AS a foodie, phone camera had often acted as my second camera now and it never dissapoint us with their new 13 megapixel camera.

s4 (9)

 With Kelly for Penang trip by using S4 on outdoor shoot.

s4 (10)

 Another shot of my food and with the detail of the food, its pretty impressive.

s4 (12)

Another cool feature of this phone is that I am going to head for healty diet for next 1 month and I was considering some devices to track on it and guess what. S4 comes with this S Health App. That tracks our daily activities, even can snap a picture of food and calculate its calories and what is the total distance I have walk and burn my calories in a day. This is exactly what I need to be embedded with my phone.

s4 (13)

Technology do evolve as with these few cool features that make S4 more outstanding, one of it is the Smart Pause. A function that follows you every move. For example, I just need to put the phone to a x distance that near my eye then it will auto detect it. After detection, I need not use my finger to scroll on the browser as I just need to move my eyes up and down then the page follow suits. Including when I am watching movie on this phone. It will detect my eyes then if I look away from the screen the movie will pause. (This happen in more dim /dark area, as broad day light it wont work).

s4 (14)

One more thing that I like about this phone is about their Air Gesture. Without touching the phone, I am able to answer call, browse pictures or read things without touching on the screen. This would be a great use when I am eating KFC or anything with my messy hand yet something is looking for me. With a quick video I did below, is how simple Air Gesture Work.

Impressive?

Overall I find that Samsung Galaxy S4 is not a bad phone as I expect more changes of the phone compare to S3. Just a minor tweak on the phone to make it more outstanding with its Airview/Air Gesture/S Health/Group Sharing features. Battery life is a little let down even with 2600 mAh.

If you were to ask me which phone of SAmsung series is the best. I would still vote for Note 2 at the moment for alot of heavy user out there.

Nevertheless if you do get Galaxy S4 and with its super light weight, I would recommend you to get this Otterbox casing that protect your phone even drop on the floor as with its unique technology that been research, as the phone fall that install with this casing, it will absorb x amount of pressure to make the phone less damage. Those who have their phone often damage then this is a good choice.

For more info click here for my review:

Click here for official website.

Clumsy person like a few of my friends, I find that their phone casing OtterBox are well protected. Some are even willing to spend bout RM350 for one casing. Reason, they often find their phone end up on the floor. That is why. With my latest review on Samsung Galaxy S4 (click here) we certainly need a good case to protect on the phone as I find the phone is too light.

There is this brand OtterBox which is the no.1 selling case for smartphones in the U.S had recently launch their latest product line of protective case for Galaxy S4.

otter (1)

I got one sample on my hand as this is the Defender series, as this brand comes with another 2 more series which is Commuter and Reflex.

Defender series which will be very good for people who are careless cuz it offer double layer protection also known it is rugged. A full protection for random accidents by absorbing outer layer, solid plastic inner shell to protect on the ground vibration.

otter (2)

 Here it is. . .Comes in a box and a clip along with 2 case.

otter (3)

 Have the back clip that clip on our belt area. ..

otter (4)

This is what I mean, multi layered with inner plastic case to protect from vibration and outer layer of rubber to absorb shock and bump. Good thing about this casing comes with a layer of screen protector.

otter (5)

This is how it looks like after putting into my S4 unit. It gives me more firm grip with more secure feeling as the rubber gives the grip.

otter (6)

 Most of the utilities charging area are well covered with a layer of rubber fitting.

otter (7)

As you can see, the cover is slightly bigger and gives full protection as the cover is about .35cm thicker from the surface of the phone as to maximize its protection.

Currently the Defender series is selling at SGD 69.

For more info, please log into their website Otterbox.asia to purchase, also available in 85 stores nationwide. 

Here is a video for you to understand more about the case.

Some of you might be wordering when you saw a group of smart people wearing tux and dress and smack right in the middle of some shopping mall over past weekend with many people standing in the middle photoshooting and video.. What do they do actually? Well, of course its something mysterious.

and if you actually listen to their lyric correctly, they are actually promoting new features of up coming phone that will be available in the market on very soon, which many user are looking forward to change their phone and hands on this new unit.

The excitement is there, as it was all on when I first start to write for Golden Disk Awards 2 weeks back. Gotten to know that its such a prestigious event that held in Korea and now its arriving to Malaysia. It had been label on par with Grammy Awards that all the Korean artist are eyeing for.  This would be their 27th installment of South Korea’s famous ‘Grammy Awards’ is hosted by JTBC and Ilgan Sports, organized by Joongang Culture Media and Mediartncomm Co., Ltd., making its way for its first time to host in Malaysia, supported by the Malaysia Convention and Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) together with the Ministry of Tourism and presented by Samsung Malaysia Electronics as title sponsor. The awards fall into the two classifications of ‘Album’ and ‘Song’ awards with the addition of Popularity Voting for fans to support their favourite artistes such as the MSN Popularity Vote, Malaysia’s Most Favourite and GALAXY Star Award.

Finally the day of anticipation had come, excited to attend such a grand event as the first day of Samsung GALAXY The 27th Golden Disk Awards in Kuala Lumpur (GDA) kicked off.

Not only that, all K-Pop fans arrive as early as 1pm right way before sitting under hot sun getting excited and waiting for the door to open. Right after the door open, all the fans running all their way to red carpet session.

I was lucky to have media tag and standing with all other official media newspaper, magazine and many more were all right in front of the stage. We were separated into 2 options whereby we can be here right for the first person to see the artist or can be up in the media room whereby the appearance and interview will be conducted there.

There were 15,000 screaming fans for the night to cheer their favourite artist and it end with a big bang. As the night ended, I enjoy myself alot with such grand event and the set back was media section was not located in the middle whereby I always thought media will have a good view. Hidden at a small compact area wasnt in my mind, and unable to acess all zone is also disappointing. Looking at the bright side, enjoying such a event was turn to my priority.

Great line up and congrats to all the artist that won away with the awards. You guys deserve it. For Day 2, stay tuned~
