In theatrical fashion, the good people at Samsung unpacked “The Next Galaxy” to a packed out crowd of over 1500+ Bloggers, Geeks, Tech savvy New Yorkers, and Samsung enthusiasts. For this type of show certainly they’d have to be something amazing to unveil or else a lot of unhappy techies would show no mercy via social media.
At first glance you think to yourself ok, well it looks the same but then your eyes are opened immediately when Samsung discusses the very specs that from an iPhone user will make me leave in ten seconds flat. Here are the ten reasons that more than likely I’ll be jumping on the Samsung Galaxy train sometime in April 2013.
1. Picture, Picture, Picture! The Galaxy S4 will be packaged with 13 Megapixel Auto Focus camera with Flash & Zero Shutter Lag on the back and 2 megapixel in the front facing camera. Hello! It’s every bloggers sidekick and parents dream to have great camera specs on a phone. With Dual Camera feature you’ll never be left out of the picture.
2. How many of you have had cracked screens? Not me but I’ve seen hundreds of them with this screen you won’t have to worry about that. The Galaxy S4 will debut with the much rumored OLED Screen with a amazing 441ppi and a Full HD 1,920 x 1,080 display.
3. Battery Life My life as a blogger and makeup artist is ruled by my phone’s battery life or lack there of. Between Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, handling other social media responsiblities and oh yeah phone calls my battery is usually on twenty by 3 pm. With the S4’s 2,600MAH pack, up from the 2,100 on the s3, I’m doing back flips and give me the option to have another battery; you’ve got a winner here.
5. Slimmer, lighter, and I’m loving the accessories that will be available with launch of the S4. I need to know that my gadgets will live synergistically together and make life easier. Samsung has done a good job of making sure that will be the case this time around. (A complete fail with Samsung Galaxy Tablet 10.1)
Alright there is more and I’ll include that below but here is my question for you, Will you be picking up the new Samsung Galaxy S4?
