Samsung Galaxy S4 vs Nexus 4: Ways for Google to Defeat Upcoming Samsung Smart Phone [PHOTOS]


Google and LG released the Nexus 4 smart phone with impressive features and specifications on November 2012 to be the most sought-after device with the Android enthusiasts. Nexus 4 offers updates to the Android operating system but what else can the smart phone do to defeat the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4?

Nexus 4 has been slapped in the past with supply issues but the fast approaching launch of the Samsung Galaxy S4 poses a battle between two powerful Android smart phones. Samsung will reportedly launch the Galaxy S4 at an event in New York, City on March 14.

Samsung Galaxy S4 may not provide the superior Android experience that the Google Nexus 4 possesses but the technology giant recently offered the feature "Premium Suite." It will allow the smart phone users to experience the Multi-Window feature that can run two applications simultaneously.

With an up-and-coming smart phone battle, listed below are four ways for Google Nexus 4 to defeat Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S4:

1.       Faster Bug Fix Updates. Most of the time, non-Nexus devices take a long time before receiving bug fix updates. Nexus 4 users are assured they will most likely never encounter waiting periods since the smart phone receives the updates directly from Google.

2.       Low-Priced Unlocked Smart Phone. Unlocked smart phones are often offered at a price of $500 and above. At the Google Play Store, the Nexus 4 is worth $299 for the 8GB version and $349 for the 16GB version. The Samsung Galaxy S4 price has not yet been divulged to the public but consumers are expected to choose a low-priced smart phone.

3.       Built-in Wireless Charging. Speculations envelope the Galaxy S4 that the smart phone will not offer the built-in wireless charging feature but Samsung will instead sell a separate wireless charging kit. Nexus 4 users do not need to spend extra money since the smart phone comes in with the built-in wireless charging capabilities.

4.       First to Major Android Updates. Nexus 4 will most likely be the first to be treated with the latest Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie when it arrives some time this 2013. For the Samsung Galaxy S4, device enthusiasts are predicted to have long waiting periods for an Android update to arrive with the United States carriers usually much slower compared to other carriers worldwide.
