There are a lot of smart phones set to be released in the coming months but the price of some of the premium phones could be prohibitive to some consumers. There are also consumers who do not have the luxury of time to wait for the new phones. The Samsung Galaxy S4 has some interesting features that consumers may want to use.
The most unique features of the Galaxy S4 are "AirGesture" and "AirView." The AirGesture allows users to accept calls, change the music, flip through photos or browse the web by simply waving a hand over the phone. The sensors of the phone pickup the hand motion and do the relevant task. The AirView allows the user to preview a particular file by enlarging it. The user only needs to point at the file such as a photo or an email to see the preview.
The "Smart Pause" feature could be particularly appealing to customers who like to watch videos on their cell phone. The sensors of the phone track the eye movement of the user and the second the user looks away from the screen the video pauses.
"Group Play" allows the user to coordinate activities and share music and photos with other Samsung Galaxy S4 users. The "S voice" is smart assistant software which performs multiple tasks for the user like answer a phone or set the alarm just by voice commands.
"S translator" is a handy feature while the user is travelling abroad. The feature instantly translates a sentence for the user. The "S health" records the user's workout, calorie intake and weight. It also tracks the temperature and humidity.
The "WatchOn" feature turns the phone into a TV remote. It also suggests relevant programs based on the users' preference.
The phone comes in multiple colours apart from the usual White Mist and Black Frost colours. Customers can choose from Pink Twilight, Blue Arctic, Red Aurora, Purple Mirage and Brown Autumn.
The features of the Samsung Galaxy S4 make it a compelling phone to buy but if the users are looking for alternatives, Apple phones have some interesting features too. For those customers who already own an iPhone there are some exciting trade-in deals available in the market with some offering up to 50% discount on the iphone 5.
