Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE I9505 16GB Review
The Galaxy S4 was one the most used and top rated phones in its category, but what made it so popular? Is it the surprisingly crisp AMOLED screen? The super-fast 1.9 GHz quad core processor? The whopping 13 megapixels camera? All of these features push competitors out of the ring, but more than anything, Samsung managed to fit all these unique features inside a 7.9mm thick case made of polycarbonate (a lightweight material).
Not only is polycarbonate lightweight, it is shatter resistant, and durable. The company also uses Gorilla Glass for the device’s screen, a high quality glass that is scratch and shatter resistant. Let’s take a critical look at the specs for this phone and compare them to another popular phone, the iPhone 5. With a quad core 1.9 GHz processor in a 7.9mm thick phone, what more could you ask for from Samsung? Compared to the iPhone 5’s 1.3ghz dual core, it’s clear to see just how fast this handheld can be. With two more cores, and more speed per core, running multiple apps on the Galaxy S4 is going to be a breeze. This will also allow the phone to run games that will take advantage of the two extra cores and run them smoother and faster. Also, with two gigabytes of RAM, doubling that of the iPhone, it will be difficult to run too many apps on this phone.
A 13 megapixels camera is going to satisfy all your needs if you are a normal user. With 13 megapixels, you can easily take frame worthy shots. Even though you should not be expecting to use it for a photo shoot, this camera is going to take great quality shots more than suitable for your everyday needs. Unfortunately, the front facing camera isn't as impressive. It uses only a 2 megapixels camera, which is ok but not impressive. But considering you’ll be using it for “selfies” and Skype calls, it will work just fine. This phone comes standard with 16 or 32 gigabytes of internal memory, which for most people will be plenty. This particular model has 16 GBs. If a movie takes around 1 GB of memory, and your typical app takes 50 megabytes, you will have to have a lot of apps and videos to fill up the whole internal memory. And in today’s day and age, most people store things on cloud storage services anyways. What’s great, though, is that there is a microSD slot, so you can add 64 more gigabytes of memory if needed be.
The Galaxy S4 is a strong contender for a reason, and that reason is great specs fit into a small form factor. If you are looking to get a complete smartphone, then this is one of the better choices available in its category. Especially if your current phone is a few years old, Samsung’s Galaxy S4 LTE I9505 poises to satisfy all your needs.
