Samsung Galaxy S4 Review
Overall, Mobile is petty good and quite enough to fit perfectly in the pocket. 5 Inch is not a big size and can be handled easily but with difficulties. Camera is also too good and enough to capture casual pics. Samsung galaxy S4 has latest Android Operating system and i’m sure it will get official updates As soon as update is released. 2GB RAM is enough for smooth performing of the device but i doubt what would happen, if you use 64 GB micro SD card. I think this time Samsung worked their best to improve battery performance as well.
Price is bit expensive but it may come down after the firs month of release. It is estimated that device costs around $800 to $900. However Pre-order costs even more.
