Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition vs Samsung Galaxy S4
If variety is more your kind of thing, you’ll undoubtedly fall in love with what the TouchWiz S4 has to offer, seeing that it’s carrying along an insane amount of shooting modes and manual controls. In contrast, the Google Play Edition’s camera app is very elementary, but it does offer the neat functionality of Photosphere mode.
Likewise, 1080p video recording quality is also a strong point with both – as long as there’s sufficient lighting, of course. Again, the same characteristic elements seen with their still image quality persists here with video recording.

Being Android devices and all, they’re preloaded with the Google Play Music app – albeit, the TouchWiz music player is an alternative option with the original model. Playing the same song on the two and setting their volumes to their loudest, there’s not one that’s able to outclass the other, which isn’t all that surprising.
Naturally, video playback is such a joy on these two, especially when their Super AMOLED HD displays makes things look oh-so dreamy. Out of the box, though, the Google Play Edition lacks support for videos encoded in DivX and Xvid, but that’s not all. In fact, the original TouchWiz model complements the video watching experience by allowing us to preview things in the timeline via Air View – and Pop Up Play for better multi-tasking too.

Also, TouchWiz is better optimized in battery department than stock Android believe it or not. Check out GSMarena.com for battery results !

Wow, you're right.. I used the Google version vs. the Original S4 and it's a huge difference.. Over all it doubled my battery life for each version of the Galaxy S4... However I'm using an extended battery, but it's still the same..

Hey John, what is the storage difference on the 2. I imagine the Goolge Play Edition will take up less storage but it would be good to know.
