About This Brand

Samsung is well known for its innovative designs and has one of the largest lineups of smart phones that run on the Windows and Android operating systems. Samsung smart phones have the industry's most advanced technologies the Android platform has to offer. They include Multi window, which lets you interact with two apps simultaneously on one screen.  For instance, you can watch a video while viewing an e-mail, or you can use Google Maps and messaging. The front-facing cameras on many Samsung models monitor you eyes while you're reading a Web page or other documents to prevent the screen from timing out. Some Samsung phones can also wirelessly share large files between each other after the phones are bumped together.  Another innovation is touch-free gestures/controls (air gestures) that let you accept a phone call, move to another message, flip through photos, or skip to the next song in your playlist by waving your hand in front of the phone. Noteable lines include the Samsung Galaxy S, Galaxy Note, and Nexus series.

I use it for personal and business phone. Great for pictures, web browsing and texting. large screen but not too big, Note was just beyond the pale so returned it. GREAT camera and sync functions work almost too well. No cons yet, keeping my fingers crossed that this continues.I was worried that it was too light but has not been an issue. Tested New Blackberry and Iphone 5 from work, still like the size and features better on the Galaxy 4.

While I've only had the phone for 2 weeks now, I've yet to find any deficiencies. The only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is because the manual for use is very light on information. The phone has so many gadgets and uses but the manual only covers basic operation. I did find the internet very helpful in uncovering the many talents of this phone and I'm really amazed at all the things you can do with it. It's like having a PC in your pocket. I would suggest buying the Flip Cover, an additional $40. It protects the screen from scratches from things in your pocket or purse. I will come back in a couple of months and give a reassessment of this phone but so far, I love it.
