There is no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be one of the best selling smartphones of 2013. But can the upgrade be justified? Is it really the next big thing or is it all just hype? According to the newly released Samsung Galaxy S4 Review that addresses both hardware and software specs, the new Galaxy S4 has more than 100 upgrades altogether. If a person is looking to buy a new android phone, then the Galaxy S4 can certainly be justified. However, if one is looking to upgrade from an existing Galaxy S3 to an S4, the answer may be different.

Almost all the major hardware components on the Samsung Galaxy S4 got upgrades. The display saw some of the most important upgrades. The screen size went from a 4.8” on the S3 to a 5” on the S4, screen resolution went up from 720p HD resolution on the S3 to 1080p Full HD resolution on the S4, pixel density went up from 306ppi to 441ppi, and the glass on the display went up from Corning Gorilla Glass 2 to Corning Gorilla Glass 3, which is 3 times more resistant against scratches. In spite of these improvements, the new Galaxy S4 is lighter and thinner than its predecessor and the touch-screen is so sensitive that it responds to gloved hands, pencils, and even forks. Other hardware that got major improvements include the processor (quad-core or octa-core processors), RAM (2GB), cameras (13MP rear camera), and battery capacity (2600mAh). addresses each of these features in more detail with pictures and videos, and is a highly recommended read for anyone interested in buying and/or learning about Samsung’s newest Galaxy S4 smartphone.

In addition to the hardware specs, new software specs introduced on the GS4 are also reviewed in detail. Most of these, such as eye tracking, air gestures, group play, multi-view mode, and some of the camera features like the dual-shot mode, sound & shot, drama shot and cinema photo are unique and novel to this phone.

According to the Samsung Galaxy S4 vs iPhone 5 vs HTC One comparison, most of the above-mentioned features of the GS4 are far superior to those on the iPhone 5 and HTC One. For example, the iPhone 5 display is just under 16:9 aspect ratio and falls short of what is considered HD resolution. The Apple iPhone 5 also has a dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM. As far as resolution is concerned, the rear camera on the iPhone 5 (8MP) is also inferior to that of the Samsung Galaxy S4 (13MP). Another area of hardware where the Galaxy S4 remains superior to the iPhone 5 and HTC One is expandable memory; only the GS4 has a memory card slot that can accommodate a microSD card up to 64GB. One of the hardware specs that can be considered inferior on the GS4 is its all plastic polycarbonate chassis. Compared to the premium anodized aluminum chassis on the iPhone 5 and HTC One, the polycarbonate on the Samsung Galaxy S4 feels cheap, however it is lighter in weight, cheaper in price and more scratch resistant.
