About the Product
The Samsung Galaxy S 4 is thinner and lighter than the S III, yet it packs a larger 5-inch Super AMOLED display, with durable Gorilla Glass 3. Other improvements include a faster 1.9GHz quad-core processor, 13-megapixel camera, super-sensitive touch screen, and infrared universal remote control. The S4 can also detect hand gestures over the display and comes equipped with 16GB internal memory, and a microSD memory card slot for additional storage. Other features of this device include LTE high-speed data, 2-megapixel front camera, removable battery, and quadband GSM along with WCDMA modes for international use. Use this device to access thousands of apps, games, movies, books, and music on Google's Play Store.
The revolutionary design of the Galaxy S8 begins from the inside out. We rethought every part of the phone's layout to break through the confines of the smartphone screen. So all you see is pure content and no bezel. It's the biggest, most immersive screen on a Galaxy smartphone of this size. And it's easy to hold in one hand.

What customers say about "Display"
Samsung Galaxy S4 (SGH-I337) USA GSM Unlocked Cellphone, 16GB, Frost White
  • The quality of the build is not as good but the large clear beautiful screen makes up for it.
  • The Galaxy S4 is a very svelte and well designed smartphone with a large and clear HD AMOLED display
  • The screen is amazing, much better than the htc one x, but probably only slightly better than the iphone's retina display.
  • I like the features, the size, gaming graphics, very beautiful display
  • Its screen is dimmer than competitors', its plastic design gives it a cheaper look than its rivals
Samsung Galaxy S8 Unlocked Mobile Phone
  • The S8 has the best display on the market. The phone is lightweight and powerful. Gaming and video playback are very smooth.
  • Awesome display and smooth interface.
  • I just bought a phone and first thing i liked was display with edge and sharp colors! Also when you watch videos on youtube, video will take full screen on phone and show you more view!
  • The edge to edge display further enhances the screen. Perhaps the best feature of the phone.
  • Love the edge display and how it works very well with the phone both locked and unlocked.

What customers say about "Processor"
Samsung Galaxy S4 (SGH-I337) USA GSM Unlocked Cellphone, 16GB, Frost White
  • Running on the powerful Android 4.3 operating system with a 1.9 GHz quad-core processor, this smartphone offers you a wide range of useful applications and helps you with improved efficiency, demonstrating impressive performance and graphics.
  • The Samsung Galaxy S4 has Android 4.2.2, a fantastic camera, a powerful quad-core processor, and software solutions for just about every scenario -- including working as a TV/DVR remote.
  • 16 gig does it for me, plenty of memory and processor speed is good
  • You won't be disappointed and won't have any trouble finding any apps or games.
Samsung Galaxy S8 Unlocked Mobile Phone
  • Love processor speed, resolution and everything in general.
  • The graphic is amazing and processor of the phone is fast.
  • It has fast ram that makes it efficient to run many apps at the same time. It also has enough memory to download several apps.
  • Zero lag due to 4gb Ram and QS835 processor. Definitely the best video quality in the market right now.
  • The processor is nice and fast, and I feel that the storage space is adequate. Should storage ever become an issue it's upgrade-able with Samsung bringing back the SD mini card holder again!

What customers say about "Features"
Samsung Galaxy S4 (SGH-I337) USA GSM Unlocked Cellphone, 16GB, Frost White
  • It's also comfortable in hand and has NFC, a user-replaceable battery, and a microSD storage slot.
  • I've wanted this phone for a long time. I like all the features. like S Health, I can track my steps when I walk, track caloric intake daily to help me lose weight.
  • Great speakers, speaker to talk is so much clearer than the Galaxy Express 3 I had
  • Standard microUSB cable used instead a proprietary cable such as the lightening cable from Apple.
  • The internal memory fills quickly so if you like your apps or take lots of photos, do yourself a favor and get a memory card and learn how to move apps from the internal device memory to the sd card.
Samsung Galaxy S8 Unlocked Mobile Phone
  • Great phone. Love the iris scanner. Not impressed by location of the finger print scanner and the curve of the phones edges.
  • Excellent smartphone, with ip68 protocol for water issues.
  • Great Phone, Samsung has a lot of great features especially their Samsung pay feature.
  • I love the personal assistant "Bixby", the camera is fantastic, and the Samsung health feature lets me record my vitals and keep track of eating and sleeping habits.
  • I dont like how the speaker sounds. It´s a poor mono speaker.
  • It's a great phone, but wish Samsung would allow this phone to have the dual SIM card feature for their US version.

What customers say about "Power"
Samsung Galaxy S4 (SGH-I337) USA GSM Unlocked Cellphone, 16GB, Frost White
  • I like the product much more than the Galaxy S3. This S4 has a much longer battery life and has a bigger screen
  • It comes standard with a 1600 mh battery, which lasts one day if you use the phone a lot. It charges fast about 2 hours, and I ordered a larger battery to try out and have apps to show power usage for bluetooth and GPS and WIFI to better understand battery saver technology.
  • Battery goes quickly unless you turn off some of the features you do not use.
  • battery may be short for some featrues and phone are great. the battery seems to have gotten better over time but it is a little close for a single day at first.
Samsung Galaxy S8 Unlocked Mobile Phone
  • This is my first Samsung phone. I love it. The display is crystal clear. One full charge of battery lasted for > 24hrs.
  • I particularly like the long battery life and the cordless charger.
  • The other things are perfect but my only issue is regarding to the battery performance and it's not as I saw from the reviews and some YouTubes.
  • The only weakness I can find from S8 is the battery life. It cannot last for one whole day without charging. But the functionality is really much more powerful compared with iphone.
