The long wait is finally over. Well, it is actually only nine months! But in the tech world, it is an eternity. Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy S 4. Does it live up to the expectations? For starters, it runs the latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, has a king-size screen of 5 inches, a mind-boggling rear camera of 13 MP, faster processor (1.9GHz quad-core or 1.6GHz octa-core), greater resolution of 1080p, battery capacity of 2,600mAh, S Health, Voice Assistant, a translation tool and the list goes on. In short, it has every feature geeks would like.
But is there a killer feature? One wow factor that will brush aside the iPhone from your mind once and for all? The answer is NO. If you are an iPhone fan, the S4 is much like the iPhone 5 in the sense that it is just an improvement over its predecessor. The S4 is firming up of S3.
Its software does have some fantastic features like the TV control app. It works with the IR blaster but then, HTC One also has it. The rumour mills got it right about the eye-tracking and gesture capabilities of the S4. It pauses a video when you stop paying attention and lets you hover your finger over an item to preview what it is. The phone is likely to be launched in India in April or May and be assured, the price will be high but could be worth it.
