Engadget Review

Samsung Galaxy S 4 review

The Galaxy S 4 is a solid improvement over the GS3, and the best Samsung device we've ever used, but we'd love to see Samsung come up with a fresh design and premium look.

Pros
  • Superb 1080p Super AMOLED display
  • Camera takes impressive daylight shots
  • Snapdragon 600 delivers solid performance
  • Battery life better than most flagships
Cons
  • Several new features are impractical and half-baked
  • Boring overall design without premium look or feel
