The rumor mill had bubbling, what keeps this stuff, it was hoped once again to the Smartphone of all smartphones.But after the performance in New York disillusionment became bask at the end rather. Cope?
The Samsung Galaxy series is in addition to the iPhones from Apple the most successful smartphone series at all. In January, the Samsung Galaxy S3 reached the 40-million mark, overall had gone up to the time 100 million Galaxy S devices over the counter. According to great expectations put the fans in the new flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S4before it saw last Thursday in the Radio City Music Hall the light of the world.
HTC one & co. put up bar
The auguries in comparison to the previous year were something others yet, because this time the S4 not only against eternal rival must be iPhone claim properly strong contenders from the House of Sony (Sony Xperia Z) and HTC (HTC One), which also cut off in the first test but also against this year. Still, the credo was: the S4 will trump anything ever again. After Samsung had rejected rumors of a flexible display, there was talk of an innovative and energy-efficient display technology called green PHOLED should represent the highlight next to the OCTA-core processor. And secretly hoped to move away from the plastic housing, after all major competitors including the LG Google nexus 4 on more noble aluminium and / or glass.
Ultimately only the OCTA-core processor, where we will have little in Germany of which was met by these expectations and hopes – the S4 will come at us with snapdragon S4 Pro Quad-core processor, at least with proud 1.9 GHz per core, that should do it enough. And of course, the Smartphone offers a huge 2 GB a FullHD display, memory, high resolution and intelligent cameras (13 & 2 mega pixels, each 1080 p video), LTE, NFC, Android 4.2 from factory, a wireless charging function and touchlose control function and a smorgasbord of other more or less helpful software programs and apps that make the device as a “companion of life”, the life companion. Positive, it is also worth highlighting that the battery can be further change and can be extended to a total of up to 128 GB internal memory thanks to MicroSD.
Nevertheless remains a fader aftertaste. A Smartphone should be able not only much, and I’m the S4 without question, but for a price beyond the €700 (EIA: €729) belong to the absolute top class in terms of design and quality. And here, Samsung has just crashed, because done already as unimaginative, the look of the S3 was only slightly revised, and continues the South Korean manufacturer to a plastic bag with edema chrome frame for his high-end product maue. The S4 is for many Smartphone fans and bloggers more pimped S3, which provides no KO purchase argument. A bit more innovation friends could not have hurt indeed the Galaxy series. Even though many new software gimmicks are landed on the S4, are only a few features, which has been already has already introduced other manufacturers (Samsung Knox->BlackBerry, air gesture-> Sony Xperia Sola), or as an app (S-> E.g. talking translatortranslator).
Hope the brand effect
Therefore, it will be exciting to see whether the S4 yet again sets sales records or whether perhaps a changing of the guard is approaching on the front of the Android Smartphone. But a look at the Samsung should Apple iPhone 5 calm: also here there were lots of long faces at the start and there was talk of a disappointment, and then it sold in the fourth quarter alone 2012 ultimately staggering 27.4 million times worldwide.
