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.

For starters let's analyze the hardware of the two competing smartphones. In this regard, Samsung has made significant improvements to this model, compared with last year version, it has an amazing full HD 5 inches displya with a resolution of 1080p, plastic casing with aluminum tapes on the edges, which gives it a premium look, thus eliminating most criticism received by the south corean company for preferring plastic cases for its devices.

A 1.9 GHz quad core Snapdragon 600 processor for the american buyers or a 1.7 GHz Exynos 5 octa core processor for the other parts of the world, 2 GB of RAM, a 2 Mpx front camera or 13 Mpx rear camera, an amazing 2600 mAh battery and more special and unique features like: 5G Wi-Fi, supersensitive screen, gesture sensor, Gorilla Glass 3, RGB light sensor, noise calcellation, hydrometer, thermometer, barometer, MHLS, high-performance audio chips, Tripadviser, assistant for emergency situations, Photo Cinema, Group play, Gaming Group, Cinema Photo, Shot Eraser, Photo Reader, Story Album, Air View, S Translator, S Heath, Smart Pause, Smart Scroll, Air Gesture, Smart Call Accept, etc., these are just few of special and unique features that make this smartphone a top high-performance device with broad applicability for the various categories of buyers.

Here are some of the highlights from the One X+ : a battery with a longer lifetime, storage capacity up to 64 GB, a processor up to 67% faster, a 1.7 GHz quad core processor, integrated Beats audio, modern design, clean and well-defined lines, made only from high quality materials, nice looking, light, sophisticated, very easy to handle even with one hand, which can be useful in many situations, a 4.7 inches display, 2100 mAh battery, a very high sound quality, these are just few of his features that makes from this smartphone a strong competitor fot the south korean models.
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.

Samsung Galaxy S4 vs. HTC 8X

Until now S4 seems to be in the front of the TOP 10 smartphones of the year 2013, but even it brought so many inovations in hardware and software fields, we should take a look to its main competitors that sometimes offers a good price/features alternative.
So, let's list the main differences between the two smartphones!

HTC 8X

Samsung Galaxy S4

Even HTC 8X has a few uniqueness aspects, we must admit that S4 is the lider of the year in smartphones industry.

So starting with S4's camera we should emphasize some features of it, like its manual ISO and White Balance, continous autofocus, panoramic photos, serial shot mode, build-in HDR, and 13 Mpx foto/video camera. 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.
