We’ve all been waiting quite patiently for the iPhone 6’s launch as Apple takes its own sweet time redesigning the iOS 7. But if it really wants to ensure that its new offerings can actually take on the Samsung Galaxy S4 and possibly bring it down, there are quite a lot of things that need to be worked on. Now that the Galaxy S4 has finally hit the markets and we’ve managed to spend some time playing around with it, exploring its features, we’ve realized that it will take more than a facelift or a bigger screen for Apple to recapture the share it has lost to Samsung. Running on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, Samsung’s added a plethora of features to ensure that it stands out among other premium Android smartphones. In addition to its futuristic features like eye tracking and Air Gesture, the one thing that Apple really needs [+more]

HTC One Vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Vs Apple iPhone 6: Being Big and Bulky Matters?

gsmarena_002

In the tech world of today, big surely is in – look at how the screen size of the current range of smartphones seems to be growing. If it was the HTC One with its 4.7-inch screen, it got bigger with the Samsung Galaxy S4 with its 5-inch screen. And now, we hear that the iPhone 6 could be a phablet with a 5.5-inch screen. But, as gorgeous as these big screens look, it’s getting harder to carry around these high end smartphones, especially in pockets. Which is why to go with the flow, fashion designers are now coming up with bigger pant pockets, especially for our large smartphones and phablets. Major clothing companies like Dockers, Banana Republic, etc. have been experimenting with new pocket designs to accommodate these massive smartphones conveniently and practically. But even as they come up with pockets that can fit devices like the HTC One [+more]

Why Samsung Galaxy S4 Is Leading the Pack and Not Apple iPhone 5, Find Out….

Samsung_Knox_Galaxy_S_IV

To provide greater security on Android, Samsung has developed the KNOX – a mobile security platform which can make the Galaxy S4 more appealing for use as an enterprise device and stronger Apple iPhone 5 competitor. This feature lets users set multiple levels of security and keep personal data separate from official data on their Galaxy S4 smartphones. There are essentially three separate layers of security on the Galaxy S4, thanks to Knox – Secure Boot, ARM TrustZone-based Integrity Measurement Architecture (TIMA), and a kernel with inbuilt security enhancements for access controls. The first level ensures that no unauthorized apps get installed on the Galaxy S4, which could put user data at risk. TIMA provides constant monitoring of the Android OS and can disable the kernel or shut down the device in the event of a security breach. The third level, security enhancements, keeps app data separate and isolated from [+more]

Samsung Galaxy S4, BlackBerry Z10 Gets a Heads Up From U.S. Government to Apple iPhone 5′s Dicomfiture

samsung-galaxy-s4-vs-blackberry-z10

In what could be yet another huge blow to Apple’s falling stock prices, the U.S. government’s Department of Defense has approved the use of Samsung Galaxy S4 and BlackBerry Z10 within Pentagon, while it still waits to sign off on Apple’s iOS 6. This means that DoD employees can choose to use the Samsung Galaxy S4 or BlackBerry Z10 as enterprise mobile devices and connect to the DoD networks to access their work. It’s a huge market share – there are at least 600,000 mobile device users in Pentagon. Among these, BlackBerry accounts for the lion’s share of over 470,000 users, followed by 41,000 Apple users, while Android ranks a distant third with just about 8,700 takers. But thanks to Samsung’s Knox, which is a secure version of Android, the tables could possibly turn in favor of the Galaxy S4. Knox was developed in collaboration with the NSA, making it [+more]

With Its Minuscule Battery Samsung Galaxy S4 may not Stand the Threat of HTC One

Samsung-Galaxy-S-4

If it was Microsoft that faced severe criticism for shipping its Surface Pro and Surface RT tablets with very little usable storage, now it’s time for Samsung to face the music. The 16 GB model of the Galaxy S4 has only about 8.82 GB of space that can be used – that’s just about half of the internal storage provided! Now we always knew that we wouldn’t get as much space as companies advertize, but this one’s just too less. So, in case you’re gearing up to buy the Galaxy S4, make sure you invest in a good microSD card as well. All that space is being used up by the Android OS, Samsung’s TouchWiz UI, inbuilt apps and apps put in by the carriers themselves. What makes matters worse for T-Mobile users is that they can only get the 16 GB model on their networks – the 32 GB [+more]

Why We Think Nokia Lumia 920 Stands a Chance to Surpass Samsung Galaxy S4?

Nokia Lumia sony windows phone

In just a few days, Nokia will unveil its latest flagship smartphone to the world – the Lumia 928. But as much hype as this event and the device have managed to garner already, does it stand a chance against the Samsung Galaxy S4? While not much is known about the specs of the Lumia 928, what we do know is that it will have an all metal body and edge-to-edge display. Surely, in terms of first impression, the Lumia 928 will definitely grab more eyeballs than the Galaxy S4. The cheap plastic body doesn’t exactly spell premium, especially when put against a gorgeous and sharp body like what we’re hoping to see in the Lumia 928. But looks aren’t everything – dig a little deeper and we wonder if the Lumia 928 can work its magic. We doubt if Nokia would put in a powerful processor, at best the [+more]

Samsung Galaxy S4 vs. Apple iPhone: Which of them is more Rugged?

Now, unlike the Sony Xperia Z, neither the Galaxy S4 nor the iPhone has claimed to be really rugged. Nevertheless, users can get clumsy with even their high-end smartphones. So we decided to test these two phones to see how well they performed after being dropped down ‘accidentally’. Both the smartphones were dropped from a chest height and from a pocket height, and the good news is that they both did well. So if you own an iPhone 5 or are considering buying a Galaxy S4, you can be a little relieved. However, when dropped from a height of 7 feet, while the iPhone 5 escaped with just a few minor scratches to its body, the Galaxy S4 ended up with a cracked screen. Between the two phones, the Galaxy S4 clearly seems to be the weaker, even though it did fare better than its predecessor, the Galaxy S3. The [+more]
