Say at once – if you expect the revolution, then waited in vain. Galaxy S IV – this will update the already excellent smartphone that is so fond of buyers.

For a start, the smartphone again plastic, yes-yes plastic. And we already wrote why . Only now the texture coating is more like carbon fiber, rather than the usual gloss. Although the surface is more glossy. Next, it must be said that Samsung has decided to increase the display of the new flagship. Now it is almost a full 5-inch (4.99 inch). This uses the Super AMOLED with a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, pixel density of 441 ppi (and yes, it is still a PenTile) and crazy angles – the early previews suggest that the text is read almost perfect at 90 degrees.

The new processors and larger screen, of course, require more power, so battery Galaxy S IV increased to 2600 mAh. As for the networks, the novelty offers support HSPA + (850/900/1900/2100MHz) and LTE 4G (for a total of six different frequencies, that is, virtually all the world’s standards). Instead of an 8-megapixel camera, which is available for Galaxy S III, the updated model appeared in a 13-megapixel sensor, which also shoots video in Full HD resolution. On the front panel there is a 2-megapisklnoy peephole camera. Visually, it was slightly less than in the SGS III. In addition it should be noted support for Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and infrared appeared that enables you to control home appliances. In general, then, and … everything.

So what’s the updated model should cling buyer? Soft. Only software. The company has decided to go the same way as the Apple, and all the emphasis is on TouchWiz, which is perfectly integrated into the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The company decided to invest in the Galaxy S IV only the best software that is in the GS III and devices Note, again to improve it, and in addition, it has to provide a lot of new features.

Of SGS III and in Note Galaxy S IV moved to features such as Smart Stay, Air View, AllShare Cast & Play, S Voice. All of them are now in the updated firmware. As for the new, the Samsung, for example, added S Translator, which supports 10 languages ​​and can be integrated into applications themselves, such as email, SMS and ChatOn. The new application S Health allows better care of their way of life and health (compatible with applications such as the S Band, Body Scale and Heart Rate Monitor). Group Play application can be networked together several G IV and share between them, such as the music for her play simultaneously – get kind of surround sound, or playing together (currently only supported by two titles – Asphalt 7 and Gun Bros 2). Adaptive settings allow more smoothly adjust the screen brightness and volume, depending on the activity of the user.

As for the function Smart Scroll, rumors of which went for a long time, here it is also implemented, but not quite, as it was said earlier in the same rumors. Samsung has decided to base the function Smart Stay (recognizes faces) and give it the support of text scrolling by tilting the device. But the Smart Pause, which is also, incidentally, came out from under the wing Smart Stay, allows you to pause the video if you turn away from the device. Resume play only happens when your eyes are again focused on the screen.

Current standards dictate use the 13-megapixel camera. HTC One exception in this respect, but there is a different philosophy. Therefore, to help the Galaxy S IV show off new features, Samsung has decided to adopt some elements of its Galaxy Camera. First, it is the loopback interface. In addition SGS IV can both do double shots and shoot a double video. There is the “Picture in Picture”. Eraser function allows to remove unwanted elements from pictures and heel, Cinema Photo Shoot pictures with a moving background. The new feature allows Sound & Shot record for each picture 9 momentary audio description. Drama Shot series is designed for quick snapshots, and joins them in a GIF. Focal length of the camera – f/2.2.

If, for good, the new flagship was to get the name of the Galaxy S III Plus, or something similar. However, the Galaxy S III himself was (and still is) a very popular device, and most likely, Galaxy S IV will gain the same popularity. Overall, Galaxy S IV – is the work on the bugs and update an existing functional. The desire to make the most of Android features almost all of what he can do.
