PCPro reviews the Samsung Galaxy S4 and writes;
“Samsung has worked hard to justify such a huge outlay, and has delivered record-breaking benchmark performance, an excellent camera and an improved exterior. We like many of TouchWiz’s more sensible features, and the microSD slot and removable battery appeal.”

CNET reviews the Samsung Galaxy S4 and writes;
“The Samsung Galaxy S4 has Android 4.2.2, a fantastic camera, a powerful quad-core processor, and software solutions for just about every scenario — including working as a TV/DVR remote. It’s also comfortable in hand and has NFC, a user-replaceable battery, and a microSD storage slot.”

Thisdaylive reviews the Samsung Galaxy S4 and writes;
“The Galaxy S4 is a nice looking, super slim phone with a drop-dead gorgeous, full HD display.. There are a lot of new features packed into it, including the dual camera functions, voice and text translation, Air Gesture and Smart Scroll. It’s clearly a step forward from the Galaxy S3, which was already an amazing phone.”

Engadget reviews the Samsung Galaxy S4 and writes;

PCMAG reviews the Samsung Galaxy S4 and writes;
“The Galaxy S 4 is the best voice phone you can buy on Sprint. The call screen has options to toggle noise cancellation and extra volume, and like on the Galaxy S III, you can personalize the call sound profile to your own sense of hearing. I was startled by how sharp, clear, and loud my calls were; noise cancellation was also excellent.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Expertreviews reviews the Samsung Galaxy S4 and writes;
“The screen is bigger than that on the HTC One, the battery is bigger than the HTC One’s or the one in the Sony Xperia Z, yet the phone itself is slightly smaller than either. Simply put, Samsung has squeezed more into less – and that’s why it wins it our Ultimate award.”
Rating: ★★★★★

T3 reviews the Samsung Galaxy S4 and writes;
“Samsung’s flagship is a real beauty. It feels good, looks smart and does more than previous smartphones have. On the other hand, just as most people only scratch the surface of the capabilities of their home computers, settling for email, word processing and a little light gaming, there are going to be a lot of customers who barely dig into the features here.”
