Samsung’s Galaxy S4 shines with specs, takes aim at BB10
On paper, the new Android phone has features that help it stand out from the competition. But some might be questioning the theatrics.
Let’s try forgetting about the cheesy acting for a minute and dive into the confirmed features.
The phone will sport a massive 5-inch Super AMOLED screen with an intense pixel density of 441 – compared to the iPhone 5’s 326 ppi.
With such a big screen, it’s a few millimetres heavier than Apple’s latest phone, and a few grams heavier.
What sets the GS4 apart from other Android devices? There are a lot out there…
For starters, Samsung has fitted a barrage of sensors, including a barometer to help monitor your health.
Something that I’m particularly excited about is infrared sensor-powered Air View, which can be used to sense when your finger gets close to the screen but doesn’t actually touch it.
