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.

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.

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.

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

 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.

otter (1)

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.

After much learning, scrolling and understand the features, it came down to 3 of the features that I like. First of all, is with this new features which I think is very cool.

air view

Those of you who did watch Iron Man 3, I am sure you guys are impress with the technology being used in there. This is the same goes to me when I understand the technology on S4. Air View/Air Gesture surely catch my attention. Its a motion that can capture things without touching on your phone panel. Just go near with your palm or hand then it will direct capture on it. cool~

s health

Recently I being influence by a friend on health tracker. Since then I did observe a few device on it then found out in S4 that this is the function that they have in it that makes it more interesting. S Health can track our habits with exercising, sleeping habit, food intake and many more. Now we can live a more healthy lifestyle.

dual

Last but not least, I always need my phone camera to be top notch or at least clear. The camera function is supurb when I try out take a few shots at the outlet. The effect came by what you see is what you get. Not only that. It have dual shot function that enable us to shoot both ways by utilizing the front and back camera. See what this baby can do for you especially girls who love to camwhore.
