Today we come with interesting disclosures that come from within the South Korean giant, therefore, after the Asian phone maker held an internal test, we find out that the Samsung Galaxy S4 is “good, but not the best.”
It seems that after they centralized the reviews of the tech websites and the general opinion form within he company, Samsung admits in certain areas the HTC One or other smartphone rivals are outmatching the Galaxy S4.
Most of the tech websites are criticising the plastic body and the construction quality of the new Samsung Galaxy S4, while other smartphones like HTC One, Sony Xperia Z or iPhone 5 are praised exactly for these two particular aspects. Some other webisites are finding the HTC One to be better than the Samsung Galaxy S4, and after some internal tests performed by the South Korean phone maker, the results have shown that the new flagship smartphone is indeed impressive, but it can’t revolutionize the market.
As you probably know the Samsung Galaxy S4 sports a 5-inch Super AMOLED display with full HD resolution and a pixel density of 441 ppi and, market dependant, is underpinned by either a Snapdragon 600 SoC with four Krait 300 cores at 1.9 GHz and Andreno 320 GPU, or a Exynos 5 Octa SoC based on four Cortex A15 cores at 1.6 GHz and four Cortex A7 cores at 1.2 GHz and PowerVR SGX 544MP3 GPU.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 also comes with 2 GB of RAM, 16/32/64 GB of internal storage expandable using microSD cards, and all the connectivity features worthy of a high end smartphone: 4G LTE, HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band, DLNA, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0, microUSB 2.0, NFC chip, and IR blaster.
The flagship smartphone also sports a feature-packed front-facing 13 megapixel camera with autofocus, LED flash, Dual Shot, simultaneous HD video and image recording, geo-tagging, touch focus, face and smile detection, image stabilization, HDR, and 1080p@30fps video recording support, while the user-facing 2 megapixel camera is ideal for video calls, as it comes with full HD video recording capabilities.
It is worth mentioning that the Samsung internal memo says that the South Korean phone maker is controlling the smartphone market and that among the leading manufactures of the Android segment.
