Is Samsung’s Galaxy S4 enough to compete with the HTC ONE?


Samsung launched the long awaited Galaxy S4 last night in New York City by showing the device in real world situations via some terrible acting in its hour long play…. I mean presentation.
They showed off the mass of new features included in the Galaxy S4 including Air view, Smart Pause, Smart Scroll & much much more. Check out Samsung’s video at the bottom of the page for more.
The Galaxy S4 stays with the same sleek & stylish design as the Galaxy S3 & Galaxy Note 2, with it polycarbonate build. This time they have dropped the hyper-glaze finish & went with a nice textured look that looks a little like Alligator skin. They have also made the edges a little less curved but it still feels great in the hand.

The Galaxy S 4 features a 5-inch full HD Super AMOLED display, 13MP rear camera, 2MP front camera and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. As for what’s powering the Galaxy S4 there will be two versions of processors, The unlocked international version will pack a 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos 5 processor and the North American or Carrier version will get an equally fast 1.9GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor. The CPU with be accompanied by PowerVR SGX544MP and Adreno 320 GPU respectively. Both versions have 2gb of RAM as well.
The Galaxy S4 will be available from the big 3 & from Koodo at the end of April. It’s expected to be selling for around $700 so start saving your penny’s because April’s just around the corner.

Well what do you think, is it enough to compete with the HTC ONE? Will you be getting one?

Samsung’s unpacked event, what could the Galaxy S4 be bringing to the world?

Samsung is almost ready to reveal the “Next Big Thing” to their lineup & the rumours are flying about what the Galaxy S4 will bring. We’ve heard thing like Samsung will be dropping the Exynos Octa & going with a Qualcomm 600. Then we heard that that’s not the case & we will see the Galaxy S4 feature the new 8 core Octa with Big Little technology. Another rumour is that Samsung will be dropping the Amoled display that they are known for. It’s said now that it will have a Pholed display, either way we should expect to see a full HD 1080p display.
Feature wise it’s rumored that there will be an extention to the smart stay feature we all love, which keeps the display active while our eyes are on it & turn it off when we look away. Samsung is said to be extending this to include the ability to follow ones eyes to scroll the content on the screen while reading such things as the browser. Smart pause will pause the video we are watching when you look away. With these features added to all the voice activated features first brought with the Galaxy S3 & Galaxy Note 2 we are moving towards not even having to touch our smartphones lol.

I’m very excited as we are just 5 days away from the release of the Galaxy s4 & I can’t wait to see just what Samsung has brought to the world this time.
What are you thinking Samsung could have up their sleeves this time around, what would you like to see as part of the Galaxy S4? Let us know in the comments below & stay tuned as we bring you all the news of the Samsung unpacked event as it happens.
