Samsung Galaxy S 4 video review demos pop, detail the Floating Touch and SmartPause features

Samsung must be pretty peeved by now, but the Chinese source that leaked the dual-SIM version of the Galaxy S 4 for China Unicom, is the gift that keep on giving, hours before the official launch...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

I have to agree with you on that.

Airview is pretty amazing and innovative, I'm highly impressed. Everything else is....kinda lame. The floating navigation didn't seem to work that well and you're right, how many different ways do we need to pause a video? lol. First palm to pause and now this? The Galaxy S V will then have blink pause. Reminds me of all the Samsung "features" I turn OFF.

I'm still waiting for the whole best thing since color tv features to come up. I hope these aren't anywhere close to the highlights.

I don't know, float can become the best type of hover, when browsing the web and stuff.... If used everywhere could be something you can live with

Of topic... Where have you been man? I barely get to see you around

Sony already patented that, they called it "Floating Touch"

I meant the implementation of it..

Sony's take was half baked and unsure what it's supposed to be.
It was just highlighting the text, useless basically.

This is the proper way of doing it, just like the Note 2, but with the finger instead of the pen.

so is samsung fan boy sony not like samsung who like copying and give the same feature each year
sony give us new innovations each year
for example sony always comes up with new desaign
low end xperia tipo, miro, and xperia j
mid end xperia p and xperia sola
high end xperia s, acro s, t, tx, v
while samsung for from galaxy pocket, y, s3 mini, s2, s3, and now s4
sony give us more choice and even xperia v beat s3 on benchmark, feature and quality
yeah i know crapsung beat sony on market share but thats only because samsung so aggresive when it comes to ad and their sales will do anything to make you buy crapsung device,
i just doesn't agree when samsung chief say innovations is what makes consumers buy a new devices instead a lots of ads and good sales thats makes people buy samsung devices
in indonesia s3 mini and xperia p is about the same price but sony device have much better build quality and more innovations, premium device must have look and feel premium and with sony device you don't have buy flagship to have premium device

Highlighting the text? It works in gallery, use as a cursor in web browser and other things more than that. So what's the use of the GS4 one?
