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.

 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.

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.

There is already a huge buzz going on for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and I have seen many people jumping ship. Good or bad it always depends on the user preference. As for me, this round I get a chance to review this unit and find out more about Note2 which some of my friends already having it, some is their Christmas wishlist and some is waiting for their bf to give them as a gift. . lol`

Note 2 (1)

First thing first, I own Samsung Galaxy Note 1 and its a good comparison for me and of course is the camera function that I love alot. Need my phone camera to act as 2nd camera to me whenever I do not bring my camera along. Its pretty impressive as seen like S3 with its burst shots. Along with:

  • 8 Megapixel Auto Focus Camera with LED Flash, BSI
  • Sub (Front) : 1.9 Megapixel VT Camera, BSI
  • Best Photo, Best Face, Low light shot

Note 2 (2)

These are all pictures taken with Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and for a phone quality, I totally have no complain . . Over the weekend, when me and my friends dine at Ben’s then I take the opportunity to test on the camera. 🙂 Capturing back at my own gadget Samsung Smart Camera NX 210 is pretty impressive.

Note 2 (3)

Even with close shots the detail of it still can be seen. Of course cant compare to a actual camera, or any digital that act purely for photograph purpose.

Note 2 (4)

Note 2 (5)

Cakes in the fridge taken is how ever something similar to my another digital camera just that some are a bit burst in white.

Note 2 (13)

As you can see in the comparision above, Note 2 are using Jelly Bean 4.1 platform already. Screen resulution of course is much better and performance of this phone is definitely better.

Note 2 (12)

Even the S-pen are slightly different as Note 2 its longish and slightly fatter. Overall grip, I find Note 1 is better as it doesnt feel so much plastic.

Note 2 (14)

Note 2 S Memo now have more variety to choose from, with more paper background and easy detection. One thing I am impress is the beam that generate out from the pen before touching on the screen.

Note 2 (15)

Look at the picture above with the pen is about 5 cm away, Air View like creating a transparent lazer sensor that automatically beam it out making it a preview for both popup Note and Popup video on the folder for you to choose. Its less than a second which is pretty impressive, with its upgrade version of S Pen (Advanced smart pen).

Note 2 (16)

For many artist, people who love to draw, take notes this is very convenient as you can just slid out the S-pen and start sketching your way.

Note 2 (17)

Evolving of Samsung phone since Samsung Galaxy S3, S-beam file transferring is just a touch away and its so fast, first time using it for a file with 500kb. .

Overall, to those who are considering getting Note 2, here are my favourite on this device:

1) Faster performance and better screen quality, perfect size of 5.5 and slightly slimmer and bigger compare to my Note.

2) Love its 8mb camera which is totally so much different compare to my Note 1 Camera even though both is 8mb (lag and slow, quality quite a huge difference)

3) Smarter function of S-Pen

4) I am very very impressive with its Standard battery, Li-ion 3,100mAh that last very long with heavy usage compare to my Note. Without turning on data, it can last about 3 days.

I have seen this phone have become a good phone to many mature people as because it can zoom in easily, numbers and text are bigger for them to see.

Its a nice phone to own as for me I shall wait for Note 3. . :p
