Default Samsung Galaxy S4 Smartphone Review Comment Thread

Samsung's latest flagship, the Galaxy S4 is the quintessential superphone. It has a large, 5" AMOLED screen, an ultra fast CPU / GPU combination and more features than we can hope to cover. It really is one of the best smartphones around.

A couple of months for me using the S4 and it's excellent. Many people are very impressed with the camera.

One thing to note in the review: Samsung just released a week ago an update that allows much of the data from apps to be moved to the sd card. You can't install completely to sd, but most of the space used by downloaded apps can be pushed to the sd card now. Makes the sd card a bit more versatile than noted in the review.

Great review! Love seeing mobile reviews here.

I have an app that checks for movable files on my S2. Works quite well.

I've been interested in the S4 but I can't justify the high price tag for a smartphone these days...

Agreed, price is just stupid. STILL nothing on Android that needs the power too.
