Samsung Galaxy S 4 Group Play and S Translator demo

Samsung Galaxy S 4 Group Play and S Translator demo
Samsung decked the Galaxy S 4 with an integrated S Translator function. In addition to allowing your phone to essentially act as an audio translator, it can also use OCR to translate texts on signs and things to help you along your way. Most likely powered by Google Translate, meaning you'd require an Internet connection for the translation, the apps supports to and from in 10 different languages. There are prerecorded lines of conversation for the most used scenarios while you travel, which can be accessed offline.

Another new feature, and this one is pretty cool, provided that you have enough friends or family around with those Galaxy devices you might have heard about, is that you can "daisy chain" them in a Group Play scenario, where, besides joint gaming and file exchange, you can play music distributed amongst all the speakers, and make a five-channel surround sound performance if you wish. See the feature demoed in the video below.

And everyone store from Motorola, Ericson, Nokia etc. So what's the big deal. Everyone steals but not everyone is successful with implementation.

The reason why they focused on the promotion of the wireless charging feature is because they had barely anymore feature to promote.

I really don't care about looks. Intelligence is far better than looks. It happens in real life.

Group play should be a hit with the gamers. I personally only play tower defense games now so it's useless to me. But nice to know it is included if I ever do need it, unlike HTC where I cant even zoom in my photographs taken with it on my Nexus 10. The GS4 is about doing whatever you want. The HTC One is about HTC telling you what you should want. That is why Samsung is rolling in the green, not marketing.

Samsung seems to be the only one that realizes the power of WiFi direct. Only Samsung and Sony seem to realize this and are innovating on this front. HTC? Bbwhaha.
