Samsung Galaxy S4
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is launched with terrific features that exceeds the features in any other smartphone or may be even tablets available in market today. I'd say, they've focused more on the software side of the device this time and brought in several intutive features to make life fun n simple. Some of the interesting ones are: 


Instantly preview and speeddial your contacts


  • Preview videos by hovering finger above the screen.
  •  Instantly preview and speeddial your contacts (even when you hover on top of the dial pad without touching the screen).
  • Recognize your eye movement to know when to pause and play the video.


  • Recognize information from images. This is one feature I always want and believed to be the future of computing. It helps recognize the information in newspapers, visiting cards etc.

  • Touch and use even with gloves.

  • Use multiple phones as speaker . No cellular data, Wi-Fi access point or bluetooth required!

  • Record a bit of audio when you take a photo.
  • Use the front and rear camera simultaneously during video conferencing and video recording.
