Samsung Galaxy S IV review - Page 4

The Samsung S4 has a 2,600mAh battery, which is one of the bigger batteries on the market. Overall, the battery life seems to be a little worse than the Xperia Z1. With regular use, this means wi-fi on, the phone survives almost 2 days. In stand-by, without wi-fi enabled, it should survive a day longer. However, when you play a game or something you'll need to charge the phone pretty quickly. Also when browsing on the web, you won't be able to get through the day. High-end phones often have problems with battery life due to the big screen and power hungry hardware. This phone certainly isn't an exception and so we aren't impressed by this part.



The S4 featuresan older and slower Snapdragon 600 processor at 1.9GHz, which is still pretty good in terms of performance. If you really want the best of the best and the newest hardware though, you'll need to buy a newer phone like the Z1 from Sony or you can wait for the S5 to arrive at the shop. Anyway, everything that has to be done on a phone can be done by this machine and even very fluently. 3D gaming and other things like that aren't a problem for the S4 and I don't think any game in the next 2 years will be heavy enough to give the S4 finally a worthy task that on full potential.


Looking at the graphs, we can see that our expectations have come true. The Z1 seems to be faster, but its performance is far more than needed and our Samsung S4 felt almost as fluent in many applications.
