Samsung Galaxy S4: The S III's successor is h

It may look like the Galaxy S III, but this is the Galaxy S4. Samsung has retained the design theme, with minor tweaks.

2/10

Bigger display, without a bigger form factor

The slimming of the bezel on the right and left side of the display has allowed the Galaxy S4 to pack in a bigger display than the SIII, while retaining the width.

The earpiece

Above the display is the earpiece that has been given a grille look that makes it stand out immediately.

4/10

Touch keys and good old button

Below the display are two touch sensitive keys for menu and return, while the physical key for home and the task manager has been retained.

Excellent display

The 1080p resolution and the AMOLED combine to give a very rich display. The colours do pop out immediately, and while some may claim that they aren’t natural, the masses don’t mind!

Galaxy of Plastic, and a bit of metal

While the Galaxy S4 has been derided for the plastic build quality, there is a dash of metal – framing the phone. The chrome finish would have to be handled with care, though.

All matters, backstage

Flip the Galaxy S4 over, and you get a slightly different pattern on the cover as compared to the Galaxy SIII. Minor change though, because the rest remains fairly similar. 

8/10

Enough juice to handle the heat

Samsung has packed in a 2600mAh battery in the Galaxy S4, to handle the power requirements of the Exynos octa-core processor and 1080p HD display.

Expand that storage

There is the memory card slot to expand the memory, over and above the 16GB built-in storage. Some phones, have off late started to miss out on this feature, which is quite unacceptable. 

10/10

Slimmer and lighter

While it has a bigger display, bigger battery and more power on tap, the Galaxy S4 is considerably lighter than the Galaxy S III. And slimmer as well. Now that takes some doing!
