Unpacked: Samsung Galaxy S4 Details!

Unpacked: Samsung Galaxy S4 Details!

By: Tatiana G. King

Samsung unleashed the Galaxy S4 to the masses with a huge blow out of epic Broadway proportions (like I expected). To be frank the whole show and presentation was utterly bizarre and more closely resembled the Oscars mixed with the production level of the Tony Awards than it did a consumer device launch. If you missed the livestream from Radio City, check out the video below:

Craziness aside, here’s some details on the S4:

I got to use a couple of demo units for about 10 minutes total and was able to review the screen, cameras, and “Smart Features” (like Smart Pause). Rather than do a huge hands-on impression entry, I can answer any and all questions about the S4. Be sure to leave a comment below!
