Description

Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G is for the hardware keyboard fans, with a full 5-row QWERTY making this smartphone stand out. Other than that, it seems like your garden variety Android mid-ranger with specs not as exciting as some expected. Powering the Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G is a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor ticking at 1.5GHz. The Super AMOLED display on the smartphone's front measures 4 inches in diagonal and has a resolution of 480 by 800 pixels. There is a 5-megapixel camera on its back with LED flash, while a front-facing 1.3MP cam resides above its screen making video chats possible. Getting on the internet on the go is done via the handset's 42Mbps HSPA+ radio.

  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 233 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

Works best in clear weather. A-GPS - A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization. GLONASS - GLONASS is a global positioning system, developed by the Russian Federation. It’s very similar to GPS, but isn’t so popular in cell phones.

    FCC measured SAR - The exposure standard for mobile devices employs a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit stated in the international guidelines is 2.0 W/ kg*. Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions with the device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified power level, the actual SAR of the device while operating can be well below the maximum value.
