Call quality is superb, data speeds over LTE 4G are excellent and the display has those better than life colors that many love.

Alternatively, the standard email app is available as well to handle other email services, but its functionality and interface is similar to Gmail.

Reviews Word on the street for the Samsung Galaxy S4


9.0
The front 2 megapixel camera worked well for fairly clear and bright video chats.

9.3
Indeed, it’s not as premium feeling as other flagship devices, but the benefits from a plastic construction is that it’s uniformly thin (0.31”) and lightweight (130 gr).

9.0
Gaming on the Samsung Galaxy S4 is handled by the Adreno 320 GPU, which can still work its magic when it comes to giving smooth, real to life gaming on the go.
