Daniel Howley from LAPTOP Magazine recently got a chance to run some benchmarks on a pre-production Samsung Galaxy S4. I’m not going to share the results with you since the device isn’t final yet, but I will share some of Daniel’s other findings. He cranked the display brightness to maximum on the GS4 and saw how it compared to Samsung’s GS3 and Note II.
Samsung Phones & Tablets: Specs, Models, News & Reviews
You’re probably expecting me to say something about how boring the Samsung Galaxy S4 is. How the phone looks exactly like the GS3, thus making it a complete joke. Sorry to disappoint, but that’s just not how I feel. Not at all.
Two days ago, Samsung announced their 2013 flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S4. I’ve been watching quite a few hands-on videos of the device because I was unable to attend the product unveiling in New York City, and here are, what I think, the best videos currently on YouTube.
Earlier today I shared a link to the Galaxy S 4’s microsite. On said site there were 11 accessories for Samsung’s new flagship phone, but press photos never really do it for me. I want to see real photos, with blemishes and all. While I’ve yet to see any on the internet, I found something even better.
Samsung’s microsite for the Galaxy S 4 showcases 11 accessories that weren’t mentioned during the keynote. I’m not going to run through all of them, you can do that yourself, but I will mention the two that I think stand out. Pictured above is the “S View Cover”.
It’s one thing to say that the GS4 looks a lot like the GS3. It’s another thing altogether to see the two devices being compared on video. It’s almost scary.
Forget watching the hour long keynote, forget endless searching for hands-on photos, The Verge has produced a four minute video that sums up today’s announcement perfectly. Just watch it and go on about the rest of your day, because honestly, you’re going to have to wait until this device starts shipping to get any actual useful information about it.
I’m sorry, but I just couldn’t sit through Samsung’s live stream. It was so over the top, so ridiculous, so “trying hard to funny, but not succeeding”, that I simply had to close my browser window and start digging up the real news.
The Galaxy S IV unveiling is now less than 10 hours away, but that hasn’t stopped Samsung from announcing two budget phones in South Africa today called the Galaxy Pocket Neo and the Galaxy Star. They’re both pretty much the same phone, except that the Pocket Neo has 3G support, whereas the Star does not.
Samsung’s “next big thing” is going to be announced in roughly 17 hours. What do I know about it? It’s going to look a lot like the Galaxy S III. It’s going to come in two colors. It’ll likely come with an Exynos processor in some parts of the world, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon in other parts. Which countries get which processor? That I don’t know.
