Samsung’s all set to launch its latest flagship Galaxy S4 smartphone in just a few hours from now, and until that moment, we decided to keep ourselves busy with a lot of comparisons to see just how well the phone will do. For the lovers of the S-Pen, today we’re pitting the Galaxy S4 against two other Samsung devices – the recently launched Galaxy Note 8.0 and the Galaxy Note 2 phablet. Which of them makes most sense for you?
Samsung Galaxy S4: While the official word on the phone will get out in just a few hours, according to rumors, it will have a 4.99-inch or a 5-inch full HD display. The Galaxy S4 could be powered by either Samsung’s very own octo-core Exynos 5 processor or a quad-core processor and should have at least 2 GB of RAM. In terms of camera, we’re hoping to see at least a 13 MP one in the rear. Additional features we’ve heard of including eye-tracking and floating touch, making it extremely user friendly and intuitive.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0: The Galaxy Note 8.0 seems to be a direct competitor to the Apple iPad Mini and comes with S-Pen capabilities. It features an 8-inch display with a resolution of 800X1280 pixels, and is powered by a quad-core Exynos 4412 1.6 GHz processor and 2 GB of RAM. You can choose from either 16 GB of 32 GB of internal storage and expand it using microSD cards. The Galaxy Note 8.0 runs on Android 4.1.2 and is fitted with a 5 MP rear camera and a 1.3 MP one in the front. It’s also got a rather big 4,600 mAh
Samsung Galaxy Note 2: This bestseller was launched a few months after the Galaxy S3 and is doing pretty well in the market. It has a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 720X1280 pixels and also has the S-Pen. Running on Android 4.1.1 out of the box, it can be upgraded to Android 4.1.2 and is powered by a quad-core Exynos 4412 1.6 GHz processor and 2 GB of RAM. You can choose from 16 GB, 32 GB or 64 GB of internal space, and there’s a microSD card slot in case that proves insufficient. An 8 MP rear camera and a 1.9 MP front-facing camera should keep the photography lovers content, while the 3,100 mAh battery keeps this phablet running for up to 16 hours on a single charge. battery.
