It is very much clear that Samsung Galaxy S IV has the new features with advanced technology. But, there are several other companies launching their new smartphones with latest technology. It is true that people will think before buying this costly smartphone. I think everyone should wait and watch the mobile market for some time as this is the first time Samsung disclosed this powerful air effective feature with its newly released smartphone. And there is more possibility that other mobile brands will also enter the market with this latest technology with lower and average price that would be affordable for users.

In other way, if you are truly a smartphone lover and want to enjoy the latest mobile features without waiting for next disclosure from other mobile companies, then you can buy the Samsung Galaxy S IV and be the first experienced user in the starting of this latest technology of smartphone world.

The most awaited device from Samsung, the Galaxy S4 is finally launched. The phone is loaded with lots of features and new technology. Let us take a look at some of the new features introduced in this new device from Samsung.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is equipped with the "Smart Scroll" feature. This features has made scrolling the phone so simple, now you can scroll your phone just by the movements of the eyes. This device can scroll the phone just with the movement of your eyes or your retina. However, it has been said that this feature is restricted only to the video feature. Samsung Galaxy S4 can sense when you are watching your video and when your eyes are away from the screen. The minute you look away from the screen, the video pauses and resumes as soon as you look back. The smart scroll feature is also extended to the screen. While earlier Samsung phones came with the tilt to zoom feature, Samsung has taken the feature to a complete new level. Using the Samsung Galaxy S4, you can tilt your phone screen to scroll up or down. However, that is not where it ends. To prevent scrolling accidentally, the feature works only when your eyes are on the screen. While Samsung has not incorporated the complete retina scrolling or smart scroll, most of the functions incorporate it.
The next new feature introduced in this device is the wave software. While the Google Play store does have apps like Wave Control for hover touch technology, Samsung has gone a step ahead and incorporated it in the new device. The new Samsung Galaxy S4 provides you the option to start/stop a song or change tracks just by waving your hand over the phone. There is no need to touch the phone. The feature works for even web pages. Whether Samsung has just added an extended version of the app or created a whole new software is yet to be seen. This new gesture is aptly called the “Air Gesture”.
The Air Gesture feature also lets you hover over mails or messages in your phone. The finger hover options gives you an expand view of the mail and message. You can now check some contents without actually opening the mail. The feature also works for galleries and photo albums.
So finally the new phone Samsung Galaxy S4 is full of new features that are not coming with any other device. This phone is not launched in our country and it is expected to be launched in April or May. Once launched in India, it will be available in many online stores and you will be able to book it for you. So just wait for its launch in India.
