Was Given a Defective Motherboard from the Factory

4.6
Verdict: I got the Samsung Galaxy S4 only 3 weeks ago and it had poor speakers and no sound notifications on messages.

3.6
Verdict: Samsung has packed this phone with benchmark specs; processing power, camera quality, software and battery power are all top line.

Samsung Galaxy S4

5.0
Verdict: As we type this we have the SGS3 and the SGS4 on our desk. While, superficially, there's really not a lot of difference between the two, to hold, they couldn't feel more different. We really like the new, more square-feeling SGS4.
Pros: A brilliant phone in almost every way, subtly better design than SGS3, loads of new gesture and eye-tracking features, powerful
Cons: A bit complex now, incredibly expensive, not a huge leap from the SGS3, battery life is still bad

Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Edition Review

4.0
Verdict: Instead of giving us a new Nexus device at this year's Google I/O, the company behind Android instead announced the Google Edition Galaxy S4. It's the same phone as the not-Google Edition model in every way except one: it runs stock Android Jelly Bean 4.2.

Samsung Galaxy S4

4.5
Verdict: At the end of the day, my feelings are much the same. The Galaxy S4 has grown on me a tad more. It's fun to use and is unquestionably one of the two best phones on the market. The larger screen size is very nice. But I don't prefer the look or the plastic flimsy construction.
Pros: Snapdragon 600 quad-core CPU is the fastest in class. Massive UI customization. Some neat new features. Air Gesture is fun. Amazing camera. UI and static images pop. Qi wireless charging. NFC support. Love the multi-window app tray. Flipboard integration
Cons: Plastic feels flimsy, slipper and sub-par. Lacks heft. Clutter-potential with overlapping interfaces. To familiar in the face of changing competition

Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-i9500 16GB

No reviews
Verdict: Too much of a good thing can be a problem, and Samsung's attempt to cram the S4 with so many features could have a negative side as well. It even defies the 80:20 rule , which we think, holds true for smartphones too.

Samsung Galaxy S4 review

4.5
Verdict: The Samsung Galaxy S4 is now two and a half years old, and not only was it replaced by the Korean firm's 2014 flagship offering, the Galaxy S5 , but the Samsung Galaxy S6 has also been on the market since March this year. That means that the Galaxy S4 is now feeling a little long in the tooth.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Review

4.6
Verdict: Last year, I had few final words: "Buy the Galaxy S3, as there isn't a better phone on the market." This year, the scenario is complicated by the entrance of the HTC One and a few mystifying design choices by Samsung.
Pros: - Beautiful, high-resolution screen with improved colour accuracy over previous models, - Excellent camera quality and lots of opportunity for tinkering, - Many of the new features like Air Gesture, S Health and WatchOn are well received and useful, - Impressively compact for 5-inch device, -
Cons: - Low-light photo quality is lower than competition, - Build quality still below that of the HTC One and iPhone 5, - Comes with nearly half of its 16GB storage already in use out of the box, - Many features like Air View and Smart Scroll feel underdeveloped, - Emphasis on using Samsung-branded

Samsung Galaxy S4 review

4.5
Verdict: The simple truth is that the Galaxy S4 and high-end rivals the HTC One and iPhone 5 are all excellent, highly recommended phones. The One and iPhone 5 have stronger design points of view with focused, flagship features. The HTC One is about Blinkfeed, Watch, and Zoe.
Pros: A blinding number of features, Incredibly fast, Ships with Android 4.2.2, Relatively small for its display size
Cons: Plastic body, Low light photo performance isn't so hot

Review: Samsung Galaxy S4

3.5
Verdict: The list of cool things the Galaxy S4 can do is astonishing. Right out of the box, without downloading a single app, you can perform a plethora of magic tricks. It follows your eyes, and it will pause a video if it senses you looking away.
Pros: Everything you loved about the S III, but more of it. Big battery lasts all day. Super AMOLED 1080×1920 screen is one of the sharpest you can buy, and it uses the new, more durable Gorilla Glass 3. MHL 2.0 port lets you connect to an HDTV. Crisp daylight photos.
Cons: Samsung's software is big bag of "why?" Construction is cheap, and there's nothing exotic or inspiring about the hardware design. Camera software is kludgy, and low-light shots get noisy quickly. Pricing varies widely (see above) but leans toward expensive

Samsung Galaxy S4 review: is last year's phone still a good buy?

5.0
Verdict: There's no question that the Galaxy S4 was the most-hyped device of 2013. Samsung's poured millions of dollars into marketing the S4 as a "life companion," which can translate your speech at the drop of a hat, beautify your photos and help you connect with the folks around you.
Pros: Display, Performance, Camera, Battery, Software features
Cons: Cheap design/material, Look of UI

Pros: Great battery life, Excellent display quality, Good speaker quality, Easy to type on, Portable, Easy to read on, Easy to navigate
Cons: Subpar camera quality – did not perform well in low lighting

Samsung Galaxy S4 review

4.0
Verdict: Samsung's flagship phone is very much a Galaxy phone with a familiar and cheap-feeling plastic build. The layout is virtually identical to the S III and Samsung's thrown a ton of software at it which when married to its quad-core 1.9GHz processor makes it a bit of a beast.
Pros: Insanely fast lots of installed apps
Cons: Limited onboard storage many embedded apps are useless cheap plastic build
