Samsung's Galaxy S4 "Life Companion" uses advanced technology to make your life a lot less complicated. The amazing 5-inch screen and specs like the 13MP camera, smart scroll and smart pause (awesome because it adjusts to your eye movement to scroll and pauses a video when you look away), and are just a few of the S4's amazing attributes. There a tons of things you could use this smartphone for, and with LTE and 17 hours of talk time, you can also use phones for what they were originally made for: talking.
Make every moment of your life meaningful with the Samsung Galaxy S4 from Sprint. 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.

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).

The phone came in less than 2 days, (I live only about 4 hours from a large amazon warehouse)
I had no issues activating it on sprint
I use several features on a daily basis, the camera, the gps, various apps and some of the airview features.
What works for me:
Phone Calls, are definitely better quality than the GS3
The WiFi works with my AC router (newest WiFi standard)
Battery life is about 12 hours from 100% to 10% for me
GPS is accurate
Looking away from video pauses it
Doesn't lock up (at least hasn't locked up yet)
Charges in less than 4 hours from 10% to full
Camera is pretty good (still a bit bad on low light or fast action though)
Wireless charging capable (with a separate back-plate or 3rd party adapter, I use an adapter and it works nicely)
What doesn't work for me:
AirView features are hit/miss even when set up correctly and turned on(I can't get air scroll to work, and even the hover to preview feature only works occasionally)
Eye Scroll has never worked along with smart stay, configured and on they just don't seem to like me, (I wear glasses so that may be a factor)
Sometimes the power button is slow to respond so I find myself turning the screen on/off multiple times in order to turn the screen on or off.
I'll keep updating this review as I find things out, but so far I would call this a 4 star phone, There is plenty of room to improve but many of the things tat bothered me in the GS2 or 3 have been corrected.
I'm not going to compare this phone to the competition, the best phone for me may not be the best phone for you, all I can say is this is a good improvement over the other Galaxy S phones of the past.
Just my thoughts,
Nice firmware!(Needs tweaking out of the box though)
Great Camera with decent low light pics!(Better than iPhone 5) [auto setting needs improvement though]
Screen is AWESOME! Resolution makes text clear and pictures look nice!
Battery life is great, and removable so you can carry a spare!(I have loved loved the ones from Hyperion)
Battery charges FAST with included wall charger!
NO GORILLA GLASS, screen broke when dropped WITH A CASE ON
Lack of free device memory(slightly improving with new firmware updates)
Screen resolution can make some thing a bit small for those with poor eyesight(fine for me)
Screen isn't quite as bright as my Note 2 for outdoor use, but it is tolerable
Some buggy software, but keeps getting better with fairly frequent updates
No WiMax, obviously they won't put this in an LTE device, but Sprint has very few markets with LTE, and not-so-great 3G speeds
I don't like how Samsung implemented the lock screen widgets of 4.2+, but that could get better
Incompatible with the old NFC tags(may irk some, but I never used them)
1. It is not as user friendly as an iphone. She has asked me a few times how to do things like turn off 3g and 4g and there seems to be no drop down menu button for that. Battery life is great, but would be even better if there was an easy way to shut off internet. There's one for Bluetooth, WIFI, Sync, and others so why they didn't add it is beyond me.
2. There doesn't seem to be a "Macro" mode on this phone. She searched for it and I have too and the solution people say is to use the zoom feature. Coming from an s2 and s3 where there is a dedicated mode it is tricky to get close ups to be sharp like they should for a 13MP camera.
Besides those 2 issues she loves her phone and will be happy with it even after she's due for another upgrade.
