Stunning display and great phone,
This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S4 5 inch UK SIM-free Smartphone - Black Mist (Wireless Phone)
I upgraded from a HTC one X, and at first i didn't think it was that much of a jump but as time goes on i love this phone. The screen and display is stunning, I have owned super amoled screens in the past and even though the colors are vibrant when showing photos etc they can be a bit over blown and false in my opinion, I used to prefer a standard display. However with this model there is a choice of settings and they work well, forget the first two dynamic, standard they are like the S'AMOLED phones of the past but movie mode is as accurate as the best of any other phones/tablets standard display, but I cant help really liking and using the professional photo mode the most, it is a little saturated but it gives the display a pop out quality that you just cant get with any other device, some of my photos Ive taken with it look amazing and the icons etc just look stunning. The resolution on text on this is also staggering I remember how impressed I was the first time I saw apples retina display but this thing goes a step further, I read pdfs and ebooks and this combined with 5 inchs is all I want, Im so glad I didnt go for the HTC one X. Plastic better for me anyway its lighter and durable.
All the phones hardware works really ,this phone is also very fast. The camera is great, my partner has an iPhone 4 and the os is simple but this thing blows apple away even the iPhone 5. Sounds via headphones was a little better on the HTC one X though and real racing 3 looked a little better oddly, but overall this phone beats it hands down.
