The screen has increased in size to 5 inches and includes the same Smart Stay technology that was on the S3 (which keeps the screen illuminated while you are looking at it) but the Galaxy S4 goes one step further with Eye Scroll, that will automatically scroll down a page when it detects your eyes have reached the bottom of the screen.
There is a quad-core processor on board which handles all the new features effortlessly – these include S Health, which will monitor things like calorie intake, exercise and blood pressure for you. The powerful processor handles with ease multitasking apps like S Voice Drive, which will act as a digital assistant when using GPS navigation, completing tasks like dialing contacts or creating messages for you.
The camera has also been stepped up on the latest Galaxy handset with a resolution of 13 megapixels, compared to 8 on the previous model. The camera includes autofocus, LED flash and geotagging standard features as well as dual-camera mode, that lets you capture images from both the rear view camera and front facing camera in the one shot and you can even capture sound with your images so you get even more of that special moment. 3.5G, Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth are on board as well as NFC and Wi-Fi Hotspot and standard essentials such as a multimedia player, expandable memory and social networking are all included too.
The Android 4.2.2 OS and Samsung UI work together fantastically well to give a slick user experience and Google Play is on hand for apps to download so the phone can be tailored to suit you. The Samsung Galaxy S4 is an impressive handset that is packing so much into its compact 7.99mm chassis that it is bound to satisfy even the most demanding user.
