-- -- -- of your fox tactic.
And this -- Samsung is out with -- brand new flagship android phone the Samsung galaxy S four I've been playing with a for a few weeks now.
And I wanted to give -- my thoughts.
It feels plasticky in the hands and that's for a good reason because it's made of that poly carbonate material so it has a plasticky feeling in the hand not -- sturdy and durable.
As the HTC one with the iPhone 5 in fact they've even made the metal bands around the side appeared heavy metal but in fact.
It's plastic back has -- textured back to it although it doesn't actually have any texture and all it's just like shiny and slippery.
So overall the form factor it feels a little -- -- Let's talk about the screen Samsung known for its displays however with the amoled screen that this boasts.
Colors don't necessarily seem accurate to me when compared with the holding -- the HTC one.
Or the iPhone 5.
Reds seem to read oranges seem to orange but photos show up beautifully on the screen and all -- -- -- -- screen.
And it certainly worked well out in direct sunlight in mind testing.
Let's talk about the software I feel like -- some links to.
Create a whole bunch of different applications and features of gimmicks and throw them all of the wall and hope that if you stick and that is certainly the case here.
When you launch the phone for the first time you're inundated with all sorts of new apps and features that you're never gonna use.
And you probably need -- 400 page manual just to figure out how to get any of these applications up and running in the first place.
For instance Samsung has the -- S health application S memo -- translate -- voice the Samsung App Store.
-- link and that's not to mention all of the other.
Crap apps that you end up getting on this phone -- I'm using the sprint model -- I got the sprint zone and a sprint TV and movie zone that launches on my phone as well.
Too many apps that I'll never end up using in the first place in -- those aren't enough gimmicks for you -- on this one up controlling the phone with your eyeballs.
Samsung rolling out this I scrolling feature which in my testing worked terribly.
Here's an example of how it's supposed to work I glanced down the screen.
Little -- pops up and while I'm reading a web page -- allow me to continue reading without using my fingers.
Another gimmicky feature is the air gesture so I control my phone might waving my hand in the -- he never used a Microsoft connect.
You know that that's -- similar feature.
I never really got -- to work well on here either and I couldn't see myself sitting in a subway car waving my hand in the middle of the air to go between photos.
One area where this phone really shines though is in the camera.
Has -- thirteen megapixel.
Camera built in.
And it has beautiful software software that Samsung pulled from their own galaxy line of cameras inside the phone now.
So I can swipe between.
Beauty mode drama mode.
Fast action all of those features that you would associate with a higher -- camera now built into the phone.
So bottom line if you're a fan of Samsung phones in the past you're gonna love this -- it's faster.
And better camera and Samsung has really tried to improve.
On all the software in the -- -- criticized before good news however if you want a more elegant android experience.
My suggestion go with the HTC one.
Cooler design and much better hardware.
