10 things Samsung Galaxy S4 can do that iPhone 5S Can't

   Our last Smartphone review was about the Samsung Galaxy S5 which is expected to be announced and released in few months time. But right now, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is the latest Galaxy S series from Samsung and its really worth talking about because it is one of the best Android devices in the Mobile Market with the likes of Google Nexus 5, HTC One, Xperia Z etc. Tonight, we are talking about some features & things that the Samsung Galaxy S4 can do which many other high-end Smartphones cannot do, most especially the over priced and over rated Apple's iPhone 5S.

1. It has a built-in infrared blaster that can be used as a universal remote to control your TV (The IR blaster is that little black dot at the top of the phone). The phone also has a special app that pulls in data from your cable or satellite provider and can suggest shows you may like to watch.

2. The Galaxy S4 is among the only devices that can sync with Samsung's new SmartWatch - the Galaxy Gear and also the likes of Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 [2014 Edition].

3. It has a near field communication (NFC) chip that lets your phone talk to other devices with NFC. This means you can use your phone to make mobile payments, swap content like photos between phones just by tapping them together, or pair your phone with a stereo with a tap.

4. It has a replaceable battery, which is a major benefit for some people. No smartphone has a perfect battery, so it's nice to have the option to replace it if you're running low on power.

5. It can play full 1080p HD video, something the iPhone 5S and many other top-tier smartphones still can't do and It also has a 5-inch display, which is a full inch larger than the display on the iPhone 5S.

 6. You can play games, share photos, and stream the same song with other Galaxy S4 phones wirelessly using an app called Group Play. The app connects you to other phones over a Wi-Fi connection while the iPhone 5S only lets you swap basic stuff like photos, links, and contact information.

 7. A fact is that Samsung Galaxy S4 features 13MP with 4128×3096 pixels camera while iPhone 5S sports a 8MP with 3264×2448 pixels camera. Another fact is that Its camera app has a lot of neat tricks. For example, you can automatically erase a blurry figure from the background or make your own animated GIFs while the iPhone 5S camera just has slow-motion video and some Instagram-like filters.

 8. A feature called Smart Stay keeps your Galaxy S4's display lit while you're looking at it (This feature is also available on Samsung S4 predecessor - Samsung GS3 ). It can detect your eyes using the front-facing camera. This is a very useful feature because it can prevent your screen from going dark while you're reading something interesting.

 9. It has another feature called - "Multi-Window". This multi-window feature lets the Galaxy S4 run two apps at the same time on the same screen. You can decide to be chatting on WhatsApp and still check your Facebook news feed on the same screen at the same time, even Samsung Galaxy S3 has this amazing feature which is still nowhere to be found on iPhone 5S, another high-end device from a world class smartphone producer.

10. You can add up to 64GB extra storage to your Samsung Galaxy S4 if you insert a standard Micro SD card but the iPhone 5S doesn't even have a Micro SD slot for your 64GB SD card. So, keep it...

   Although, there are some other ways that the Apple iPhone 5S shows its superiority over the Samsung Galaxy S4 but right now, Samsung Galaxy S4 is still topping iPhone 5S with the 10 fully-packed features listed above. Watch out for our future post on the iPhone 5S's features ahead of the Samsung Galaxy S4 too. What do you think about this post ?

    1. Thanks Chinyere, Just put on the Infinix race's bluetooth and search for it with the Blackberry then pair after searching.. Also make sure the Infinix race's bluetooth is set to allow other devices to connect. It will probably work this way

  2. Tanx, but hw do I set d infinix Bluetooth to pair wth others?

    1. You can do that by simply turning on your Infinix bluetooth then you will search for other devices, after seeing another device..
      1. Choose Pair or Connect...
      2. A code will be displayed on the Infinix phone and the other phone you want to pair.
      3. Confirm the code on both phones and it will automatically pair once the code has been confirmed.
