Samsung Galaxy S4 Review Round-up


It’s been a little over a week since the Samsung Galaxy S4 announcement, and a few reviewers have already given their take on the new smartphone before it hits stores sometime in April. Will this new smartphone be the one to sway Apple users or will it stay true to loyal Samsung fans? Read the top reviews here:

CNET says, “Compared with the extremely successful Galaxy S3 that came before, it’s a firm stride forward rather than a giant a leap, but it raises the bar again for Samsung’s competitors. And by super-sizing the screen and packing in so much specialized software, the GS4 sets itself even farther apart from the iPhone.”

Forbes says, “One of the more interesting features of the device’s photo capabilities is that it allows the user the option of inserting him or herself into the photo being taken in a small window in the frame of the shot. No more being left out of shots.”

TechRadar says, “The Samsung Galaxy S4 feels like much more of an iterative update than new design, and while it will probably sell well there’s very little to wow you when it comes to the overall shape. Specs are important, but if there was such as thing as a Samsung Galaxy S3S, this would be it.”

NextWorth industry insider says, “The new Galaxy S 4 hardware will be capable of running the next version of Android, scheduled to be unveiled at Google I/O in May. The new device will be nearly twice as fast as prior Galaxy phones.”

“This kind of value decline before, during and after a new product release is something we have historically only seen with iPhone launches,” said Jeff Trachsel, chief marketing officer at NextWorth. “It is one more indication that Samsung is creating a similar franchise with the fourth Galaxy, where new models are rabidly sought by owners of older generations.”
