Samsung Galaxy S4 vs. iPhone 5

In this article we will see who is winning the battle between two largest competitors in the smartphones market for the moment Reviewing all technical features of the two and highlighting the strengths of each, so having a full comparison of the two.
The rivalry between the two major players is not new, in recent years both racing to bring for their customers better products, both wanting to maintain its leading positions in certain segments.

Apple's devices has the advantage of having simple and compact design, finished in high quality materials, while the South Korean company has a larger screen, very appropriate and very useful for multimedia applications.

The beauty of Apple's smartphone is undeniable, its modern design and premium quality materials of which it is made, such glass and aluminum, in these conditions Samsung has no way of winning in this chapter only because it is thinner, slightly bigger, with an amazing 5 inches display. Both smartphoes can be operated with one hand.

The South Korean smartphone does not impress very much by its plastic case, but this drawback is offset by the fact that it is very easy and very pleasant to touch, however, it is very much improved compared to the previous version, S3.

With a thickness of just 0.25 inches, S4 is much thinner than his Apple competitor, being at the same time longer and wider than this. In terms of size, people are putting greater emphasis on Apple's performances, while Samsung values both performance and the ability to use its devices for a wide range of multimedia applications like watching your favorite movies or video tracks, with a very high resolution of 1920x1080 pixels.

Samsung's smartphones is left behind by its Apple rival in terms brightness, iPhone 5 having around 535 lux light for each meter, so with nearly 200 more than Galaxy S4, thus might displease S4 owners who outside, in the sun, at reading, are experiencing serious failure of the display.

The sound quality is better at S4, but instead, iPhone 5 has better options for setting it, having the speakers on the bottom. However, your favorite song will be very well heard from the other side of an office and nobody will realize that your smartphone is actually a very powerful device that brings these clearer and louder sounds closer to you. Samsung's interface is much easier to use, more simple and intuitive, thus making Samsung Galaxy S4 much desired for more categories of buyers.

Where S4 exceeds the real competition is the multitasking, si it can support simultaneous running of multiple applications, due to its high-performance processor, due to its memory, but also due ti its large storage capacity of 16 GB, 32 GB or even 64 GB that is available.

For the less experienced users, S4 has the option of Multi Window Menu, which allows running two or more applications simultaneously on screen, at the same time, such as, for example, you can check your Facebook status while watching a trailer on youtube, etc..

iPhone 5 is very easy for typing different texts, but Galaxy S4 goes a step further, having technologies in this field, with Swiftkey option and settings for predictions or even voice typing words, making thus this latest smartphone more useful for many life situations.
Samsung Galaxy S4 vs. iPhone 5

The 13 MP rear camera and the 2MP front camera are also special features that can be found in some professional camera equipment, which is another advantage for this very powerful smartphone for being in the top choice for fun and also for many other multimedia applications.

So, here are just some of the strengths of this latest smartphone from Samsung, and for more technical specifications, you can also refer to the other posts on this blog.

Recently appeared photos of this model show that it will have a screen of 4.3 inches, the mini version following the last year tradition that had great success with S3 Mini. The motivation for this mini versions release is to provide the opportunity to enjoy the best and unique features of this amazing device for as many types of buyers at lower prices.

According to recent rumors, this mini version will have a 1.6 GHz very powerful processor, an 8 MP camera, and until now we do not have more information about its starting price, but I will keep you updated with the latest information about its launch. The South Korean campany surprises do not stop here, because for 2013 Samsung has planned the launch of a new tablet, the Galaxy S4 Active that will amaze and impress with its performance and with the fact that it will be dustproof and waterproof.

On this blog you will find all the information you need to make great deals and for choosing the best smartphones that suit your needs.

Useful features of Samsung Galaxy S4

This latest smartphone has many best features, the most powerful at the moment, so in this article I will describe a few of them that I thought were most interesting to me. These innovative and amazing features make it one of the most desired gadgets of the moment, here are some of them, and the competition with Apple has successfully been won by Samsung with the latest high-performance smartphones launched in recent years.
This smartphone has come up with a completely different vision and it is equipped with features for eyes recognition, hand gestures, as well as high-performance hardware components, with an updated processor compared to the previous version. Samsung Galaxy S4 has the same size as the previous version, but also has a larger display, and its Android OS comes with many improvements, such this smartphone getting to be much more efficient and easier the used.

The only criticism that can be brought to them is that the casing is still made from plastic materials, and thereby does not look as stylish as that of its main competitors HTC One or iPhone. From a distance nobody will realize that you have the latest model of smartphone, because it is very similar in appearance to previous version, Galaxy S3.

Its lifetime battery is 20% higher, so you can use the device a longer period of time or you can run multiple applications simultaneously with greater complexity. Also, its storage capacity can be expanded with a memory card, which can bring envy of its main competitors.

With the Smart scroll you can very easily recognize eye movements and thus works when you have to save energy and the buyer is not looking at the display, or when you read web pages or emails and they are scrolled by this feature when you get to look at the point that would require moving to the next page.

With Air View each buyer can only gesture at the smartphone's screen and it will execute the commands without the need of activating the menu, and the Air Gestures sensor is very useful, for exemple, when you eat and your hands are greasy, so this new feature really proving its worth.

The S Translator can translate instantly, as in science fiction movies, any text from any language, so you will not have any problems in communication during your holidays in exotic or isolated locations.

The camera of this amazing smartphone is very performance and it has a resolution similar to that of professional cameras with settings for processing and obtaining outstanding special effects, dual shot, animated photo, or drama shot.

Useful features of Samsung Galaxy S4
In Easy Mode using this smartphone is very pleasant, so until the least experienced users can easily use the camera, email, phone, internet, messaging, calendar, browsers, etc..

Samsung Galaxy S4 is the best choice for buyers from various industries and for all categories of population, and each of these features is ideal for both social media and for more complex application, thus being modern and nice and fast and very showy in the same time, those are just a few reasons why this smartphone deserves to be the top choice of interested customers.

Best cases for Samsung Galaxy S4

If you are looking for special Cases for your new smartphone, this article will help you a lot. Compared to its competitor iPhone which has many cases available, this smartphone's options are more limited, buyers only having limited choices.
My suggestion is to take into account criteria such as design, usefulness, ease of use, affordable prices, and of course, to avoid counterfeit products, because while an original case costs between $30 and $50, a counterfeiting case with a lower quality only costs around $10. Anyway, the most important is the buyers preferences, their taste is often even more important than quality.

This just released smartphone is already available for sale at all major retailers and on other sites like Amazon, it amazes with the hardware components and also with many other special and unique features.

Having the last year experience of its S3 predecessor which had a record volume of sales and was greatly admired and preferred by tens of millions of customers, this year expectations are even higher.

The market expects like the S4 model to be even better than the Galaxy S3, and Samsung has thought about the casing strategy for an adapted case for its display, called View Cover, the novelty of this is given by that this case fits very well and allows you to see notifications without the need to remove the device from the case.

Best cases for Samsung Galaxy S4
This case was specifically designed for S4 and since it has a much larger screen, so it has a higher need for its protection.This official casing produced by the South Korean company is called S View Cover and it has the advantage that in addition to the protection offered it is also very useful, allowing reading the notifications direct on the screen where they are displayed, direct through the hole, so through this case you can check time or an incoming call could be taken or you could see real time updates from your facebook account.

This Samsung Galaxy S4 is very powerful, and attention for the smallest details is seen in the way this case has been specifically designed  for this model. I personally believe that this case is funny, useful, with a great design, and I highly recommend using them to enjoy all the benefits offered.

Drop resistance test - How strong is Samsung Galaxy S4?

In this article you will find out how this just released smartphone did on resistance tests compared with some of its biggestcompetitors.
Smartphone was thrown on hard surfaces from different heights, from the pants pocket or from the pocket of the shirt, to test how he handled these situations that any buyer may face at some point. For the beginning I say that things started to get even more interesting when the smartphone was dropped from even larger heights.larger.

Samsung Galaxy S4 began to show their limits when he fell from a height of seven foot, at which struck down with an edge and had the first crack in the screen, the crack was not all over the screen, so  the smartphone continued to work. But this device from Samsung has done much worse on this test than its main competitor, iPhone5, who suffered, unlike it, much less damage.

For a gadget so powerful which has the slogan "life companion", drop resistance may be useful in many circumstances because some accidents are inevitable, but unfortunately at this endurance test S4 did not do so well, even fared worse than earlier S3 version, being more fragile than this at official tests.
Drop resistance test - How strong is Samsung Galaxy S4?

The total score obtained was seven, that even half a point lower than the last year won by its previous version, the explanation of this fragility is given by the larger and more open design of smartphones manufactured by the South Korean company.

This score has been speculated by his contestants in their favor, so saying Apple saying they will not sacrifice strength just to obtain a larger display that could break more easily, given the exemple of smartphones from Samsung's S Series.

Coming soon: Samsung Galaxy S4 Active and Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini

Today we had another good news coming from Samsung : the just launched Samsung Galaxy S4 will be followed this summer by an improved model that will be water resistant and dust resitant, according to the Wall Street Journal. According to this specific source, this model will be named Galaxy S4 Active and we are expecting to be launched in aproximately 3 months, maybe in July.
Samsung official representatives confirmed two weeks ago, during the launch of S4 version in Dubai, that they would launch such a device, but they did not specified any release date, specs, other features or names for it. So far we only know that it will have the same design like S4, but it will have a highly resistant casing which will offer a good protection against dust or even water, imagine what applications could have such a device.

Gadgets resistant to harsh conditions like water, cold, dust, etc. are not a new idea, the Android operating system by other  models launched by Sony, Motorola or Samsung, but all those were low end or mid range versions, not as highly performantm as those from galaxy series.

With the launch of Sony Xperia Z, the interest for increasing the resistance of those high tech smartphones with high prices and resistant casing designed to protect from extreme enviromental conditions was an innovation in the field. Other major companies had also announced that future versions will follow this lie and will focus more on sustainability.

In addition to this, the same official source from the Wall Street Journal says that the South Korean company is working at this time for releasing a mini version of this S4 just released model, most likely this will be the expected Mini model, which will offer a screen with 4.3 inches and the latest tablet with a 8 inches screen.

Thus the year 2013 promises to be very lively for the south korean company with an impressive amount sales, which will strengthen its leadership position for the smartphones and tablets segment.

Samsung Galaxy S4 vs. HTC One X+

Which of the two is better? Which of the two is nicer? Which of the two latest smartphones suits me better for my needs? Here are some questions that we will try to answer in this post.
Samsung has accustomed us in the last years because it has maintained his design, appearance, preference for certain materials they use to manufacture it's high performance gadgets with approximately the same shape, and more importantly, with much improved performances at every new release.

The Galaxy S4 is a S3's improved version in almost every way, while HTC One X+ comes with the advantage of being made from premium high quality materials, thus beeing much better than those used by the South Korean company and having a great design interface.

Samsung Galaxy S4 vs. HTC One X+

The phone is much easier to hold in your hand or to handle with only one hand, but at this chapter HTC One X + is the winner, because it is thinner and lighter than S4. HTC'interface is better structured, while Samsung does not excel at this, and I personally think that inspiration from nature does not seem appropriate nor sophisticated impression.

My opinion is that each of the two smartphones meet the needs of customers to the highest standards, both benefiting from improved Android operating systems with diverse features, although both smartphones are powerful rivals who are on a broad level, however should keep in mind that each is an unique smartphone, but Samsung Galaxy S4 yet brought the newest innovations in software technology market compared to any other smartphone invented till it.

Also, it has 2 GB of RAM, a higher pixel density, a better resolution (1080 x 1920 pixels), a bigger touchscreen, a dedicated slot for external storage (up to 64 GB microSD), FM radio, a higher CPU clock speed, more applications for its native installed OS, it's thinner, has a newer version of bluetooth, it supports Adobe Flash, and has a better and removable battery.
