Samsung's Galaxy S4 is a high-end smartphone, and is the 2014 upgrade to the previous model, the S3. It is intended to compete with other Android smartphones like the HTC One or Google Nexus 5. Its main upgrades include improvements to its camera (now 13 MP) and display (now 5", 1080p HD AMOLED), as well as a quad-core processor at its core. It also has a range of gesture-based functions that are not found on other Samsung (or competitor) models. Purchasers considering this phone may wish to know that it is one of the few major smartphones of this class that still allows users to access the battery via opening the back case. This allows for hot-swapping of batteries if desired, and in case no power source is available but backup batteries are on hand. Also, unlike many competitors, this model does feature a microSD card slot that allows for expandable memory. See below for full technical specifications.
