The Samsung Galaxy S4 delivers an effortless user experience (view larger).

The Galaxy S4 does what you want and what you didn't know was even possible. Erase a photo's background distractions with just a touch, catch every part of your child's somersault, or capture your view of the city skyline. Preview photos and files or read a news article without ever touching the screen. Use one screen to check Facebook as you catch up on email.

Offering a highly crafted design with a larger screen and improved battery life, the sleek and innovative Galaxy S4 is slimmer yet stronger, with less to hold yet more to see.

The Galaxy S4 features a 5-inch Full HD 1080p Super AMOLED touch-enabled display, a 1.9 GHz quad-core processor, a 13-megapixel rear camera with Full HD 1080p video recording capabilities, 2-megapixel front camera, 16 GB of storage plus microSD memory expansion up to 64 GB (via optional card), 2 GB of RAM for excellent multitasking, a full complement of wireless connectivity (including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC), and enterprise-ready security features.

Catch Any Moment, Keep Every Memory

Equipped with a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, the Galaxy S4 also boasts a Dual Camera function that allows simultaneous use of both front and rear cameras. When capturing moments, you can choose from a variety of frame effects that blend the two pictures naturally and also adjust the size of the small picture inside the big one. You can also select from eight different ways to combine the two photos taken by the front camera and the rear camera.

The camera includes 12 shooting modes, including the Drama shot mode that enables you to see all the action in one continuous time-lapse and Sound & Shot for storing sound and voice together as the picture is taken. Additionally, the Dual Video Call function enables you to make and receive a video call with friends and family while showing what you are looking at during the call.

Your special moments can be automatically stored in a photo album with the Story Album function. Photos are automatically gathered and sorted out according to your timeline, geo-tagging information, or a specific event to create a photo album.

And your photos and videos are showcased on the world's first Full HD Super AMOLED display. Its 5-inch screen has a 441 ppi (pixels per inch) pixel density for stunning viewing quality and Corning's Gorilla Glass 3, making it stronger and more resistant to scratches and cracks than ever before.

Bring People Together

More than just a personal device, the Galaxy S4 makes the most of your relationships and enables you to easily share and experience many of life's pleasures together with family and friends, wherever you are. With the Group Play function, you can enjoy music, photos, documents, and games with those around you without even requiring a Wi-Fi or cellular signal. You'll be able to connect directly to other Galaxy S4 users instantly. For example, the Share Music option enables you to have the same song playing on multiple phones in sync to create the best party atmosphere.

Effortless Experience

The GALAXY S4 ensures that tasks are effortless with innovative features that detect your face, voice, and motions to enable screen control with no need for finger touch activation.

  • Samsung Smart Pause enables you to control the screen by where you look. When you are watching a video, the video pauses when you look away and then it starts right up again when you are back.
  • Samsung Smart Scroll allows you to scroll the browser or emails up and down without touching the screen. It recognizes your face looking at the screen and movement of your wrist, and then it scrolls the pages up or down accordingly.
  • Air View enables you to hover with your fingers to preview the content of an email, image gallery, or video without having to open it. You can even see a magnified view on the internet browser, or a phone number saved in the speed dial on the keypad.

  • With S Voice Drive, you can activate commands via voice control for optimization when driving. Once connected with a car's Bluetooth connection, the phone automatically turns into driving mode to convert text to speech so you can easily and safely check messages with no need to look at the screen.
  • Samsung Optical Reader automatically recognizes text, a business card, or QR code information, providing useful functions such as translation, call, text message, and search.

Take it at Your Own Pace

Offering a number of features for first-time smartphone owners as well as those switching from another operating system, the Galaxy S4 has a streamlined start-up wizard so you can begin using the device faster and learn about its unique features from the start.

Originally introduced with the Galaxy S3, Easy Mode has been enhanced by simplifying the home screen layout, camera, calendar, messaging and the internet browser to make the settings menu easy to navigate. Once you're more comfortable with the Galaxy S4, you can switch back to the standard home screen interface.

The Smart Switch PC application enables you to transfer contacts, messages, photos, music, calendar notifications and more from another phone to the Galaxy S 4. Smart Switch can identify favorite applications and recommend the same or similar applications within Google Play.

A Smartphone That Makes TV Better

With its infrared sensor (the same technology as your remote control), the Galaxy S4's WatchON feature can change the TV channel from your phone. And you get a custom TV guide that shows you what you like to watch. With Samsung Hub, you can watch more music, movies, and games with one app and one sign-in.

Protect Your Information

Not only ideal for personal use, the Galaxy S4 is also a SAFE-designated device, which means it has additional security features to safe-guard sensitive data and communications. The Galaxy S4 is the first Samsung device to include Samsung's KNOX solution, which provides comprehensive mobile security at the hardware level and enhanced personal privacy for individuals at the software level. It delivers industry-leading mobile security for companies with stringent security requirements, and allows IT managers to access and manage the passcode-protected work information without disturbing the content within an individual's personal space (including photos, emails, music files and social network data).

*10/14/13 Still loving my Galaxy S4. My wife wanted to stay with Apple so I got her the 5S. Eh, S4 is better in my opinion :) Still not looking back. Sorry Apple, sorry iPhoners :)
*Mirroring the Pepsi/Coke 80's commercial, my daughter looked at the 5S and my phone; played with her app on both phones, then put my wife's phone down and continued with my phone. Since then, she has eyes for my phone only.*

*October News*
Verizon updated Android to 4.3

I've had an iPhone since 2009. When I watched the Apple conference to see the iPhone 5, I really wasn't impressed. a few years ago when I picked up my 4S and after the return date, I saw the GS3. I was very impressed with it however, I was hesitant with Android since my wife had a Droid Incredible 2 which died a little after a year when she got it. Talking with some people who have the GS3, they said that they loved it, it's easy to use, and Android has gotten better over the course of time. At that time, the Android market in my opinion seemed like a disaster. Apple did a nice job streamlining everything (app market, itunes etc). Every so often when I had to go to the Verizon store, I would be attracted to the GS3 floor model. Since my upgrade date was coming soon, I thought that it's time for Apple and I to go our separate ways, be just friends. "We were on a break!!!"

So to cut this short before I get hate mail for typing a long a$$ boring review; here goes:

I've been with Verizon Wireless since 2005. I also have Verizon FIOS (TV, Phone, Internet). Having FIOS is great since I don't use any minutes when calling home or when my wife calls me 5 times in a day on some occasions. The record amount of phone calls is held by her, yepp you guessed it, her mom hehe :) tell my wife and I'll deny it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Samsung Galaxy S4 Thorough Review May 24, 2013
By Zain
Format:Wireless Phone
Before I picked up my Galaxy S4, I had the Galaxy Note II. I put my Note II up for sale online before my S4 was supposed to arrive, and it sold around two weeks before the S4 was supposed to be released, so for the two weeks before my S4 arrived, I had been living with a Droid X. Keep this in mind during my review, as my findings may have been slightly tainted by the fact that the S4 is such a massive upgrade from the Droid X, which I can hardly consider to be a "modern phone" anymore. Anyway, I'd like to go through the S4's hardware (screen, construction, camera, internals) then its software and any miscellaneous things I hadn't mentioned so far.

Screen

The Galaxy S4's screen is unbelievably high quality. It is a 4.99" 1920 x 1080 panel, and colors are extremely sharp and vivid. Text looks fantastic, and because the resolution is so high, I haven't had a problem decreasing the font size to fit more information on my display. The display is 441 pixels per inch; in comparison, the S3's is 308 ppi, a 43% increase! The screen is a massive improvement from the S3 or the Note II. Super AMOLED HD panels like this one make colors really pop, which isn't a problem for me, but some people prefer to have a more realistic/neutral panel on their phones. There is a display setting that you can adjust to make the screen more neutral though, which should help alleviate any issues people have with the S4's standard setup.

Physical Construction/Phone Exterior

The Galaxy S3 was said by Samsung to be inspired by nature, so they made it with very curved sides like a pebble. With the S4, this mantra is refined a little bit. There is a metallic band that circles the phone's sides, and the swooping curves of the S3's back are straightened out a little.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blows the competition out of the water! May 23, 2013
Format:Wireless Phone
UPDATE#1: The battery life seems great, better than on the S3 even though the screen is larger and has a higher resolution than the S3. When I had my S3, I used to lose about ~3-5% of battery every two hours or so but with the S4, I seem to lose about ~1-2% so that's awesome. The phone comes with a ton of bloatware and the only way to get a good battery is by removing all the bloatware. I was getting terrible battery life when I first got my phone but after reading online it seems that everyone suggests removing the bloatware for batter battery life. Like I said in my review, the snapdragon 600 uses very little battery when it is not being used so that's a big plus. I'm a heavy user and when I say heavy user, I mean heavy user. I do pretty much everything on my phone from taking a crapload of pictures/videos, watching YouTube videos, playing 3D games, phone calls and surfing the internet. At the end of the day the phone has about 30-35% of juice left. Also, one thing that I forgot to mention was the speakers on the phone. Samsung decided to move the speakers which used to be at the top near the camera on the S3 to the bottom of the phone which wasn't a good idea if you ask me. You can block the sound coming from the phone when holding the phone with your hand.

----------------------

It's been a week since I got my Galaxy S4 and this thing is super awesome. My previous phone was the S3 which I loved to death and this time I'm super excited to have the S4 in my hands. I had absolutely zero issues with the S3 but the S4 looks so sexy with the metal edges. I seriously don't understand why people buy an iPhone because let me tell you that the Galaxy S4 blows the iPhone 5 out of the water and every other phone out there.
