Our thoughts:

The Galaxy S4 was one of the most awaited phones for the year. Samsung advertised it as the next biggest thing in technology after “Color TV” – and we believe they completely justified that claim.  After viewing the actual S4 design and specifications, we are led to believe that Samsung has truly maintained it’s hype and promise by delivering a phone that combines the power of Android and the innovation of Samsung together.
