Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-i9500 16GB

4.0
Verdict: The basics The Samsung Galaxy S4 is a blockbuster in every sense. It's a giant phone with a whopping five-inch, full HD AMOLED screen, 4G speeds, 13 megapixel camera and blazing quad-core 1.6GHz processor.
Pros: The Samsung Galaxy S4 is a tech fiend's dream phone. While it may lack the metal body and design panache of the HTC One, it makes up for its shortcomings with a removable battery and an external memory card, potentially giving you up to 96GB of storage to play with in total - along with 50GB of free...
Cons: You'd be hard pressed to call the Samsung Galaxy S4 original. It looks identical to a Samsung Galaxy S3 - in fact, the only noticeable differences are the chrome trim around the sizes and ever so slightly larger display.

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 S 4 review: my life companion

4.0
Verdict: The S 4 is not the perfect phone, but it's a damn fine improvement over the S 3. I haven't even mentioned that Samsung now has a two-year water damage warranty which comes free with every S 4 – the phone really is your life companion and Samsung wants to ensure that nothing happens to it.

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 Review: Good, Not Best

No reviews

Verdict: The Samsung Galaxy line of smartphones is a juggernaut; like the iPhone, the next generation will sell well based simply on brand loyalty, trust and familiarity.

Samsung Galaxy S4 (Verizon Wireless)

4.5
Verdict: Nearly half a year after its initial release, the Samsung Galaxy S4 ($199.99/16GB with 2-year contract) remains a top option on every carrier it's available on. The blinding number of features and impressive performance keep the S4 at the front of the pack.

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 S 4 in-depth review -

5.0
Verdict: Look and feel Slim and sleek. Although the plastic build doesn't scream 'premium', but it keeps the phone light and it still looks gorgeous and feels great in the hand.

Pros: Enlarged and improved screen, innovative features, great camera, strong battery life

Very, very impressive: Samsung's Galaxy S4 reviewed

4.5

Samsung Galaxy S4 review

5.0
Verdict: You'd think Samsung's gameplan for this year would be pretty simple after shifting more than 50 million Galaxy S3s .

Pros: Gutsy and powerful, Lush screen
Cons: Underwhelming design, New gestures a bit gimmicky
