Galaxy S4, Samsung Electronics Co.
The S4 is an excellent device from a hardware standpoint.
Its 5-inch screen is larger than its predecessor, yet it's a tad lighter and smaller.
The display is sharp, at 441 pixels per inch.
Samsung packed the Android device with a slew of custom features, including new camera tools and the ability to perform tasks by waving a finger over a sensor.
Many of the features, however, make the phone more complicated to use. In some cases, custom features work only some of the time. In other cases, you're confronted with too many ways to do similar things. The S4 might be for you if you don't mind spending time customizing it. Otherwise, you must bypass all the gimmicks to get to what otherwise is a good phone.
