Samsung Galaxy S 4 display, Air View and Air Gesture demoed on video
posted by Nick T. / Mar 15, 2013, 5:37 AM
But specs aren't everything. There's a few more cool tricks that the Samsung Galaxy S 4 has up its sleeve, made possible by its exceptionally sensitive display. Basically, the touchscreen can detect when a finger is hovering over it, which allows interaction without the need for the user to actually touch the surface of the panel.
So for example when you're checking your email or calendar appointments on the Samsung Galaxy S 4, you can get a quick preview simply by hovering your finger above a given message or date. And while browsing the web, swiping your hand left or right above the screen will switch between tabs. That's also how you can flip through pictures displayed in the gallery.
Cool stuff, don't you think? To get a better idea as to how great the Samsung Galaxy S 4's display is, just check out the video below! In addition, we have a demo of the aforementioned touchless gestures, so make sure you check those out as well!
- Display 5.0" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 13 MP / 2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, Quad-core, 1900 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2600 mAh(17h 3G talk time)

All I am going to be seeing most of the time is the screen on this phone. Why bother about the looks? This phone is far from being ugly. I don't like aluminium materials,they scratch easily. It has features I like and a good camera,an s3 upgrade is not awful at all. I am getting this phone. Looks are not what I am going to be using day to day, it's the features and how fast the phone responds that matters to me.

Would you buy a million dollar ferrari if it looked like this:http://image3.mouthshut.com/im
ages/ImagesR/2012/12/Maruti-Suzuki-800-925000042-1003655001-1.jpg . It's possible to have a removable battery/MSD slot and a decent quality of plastic on a phone.

I do not know what is wrong with Galaxy S4 haters. This phone is truly perfect. If the problem is just design,that's ok.go for another brands but remember last year everyone complained about S3 design but after a brief experience they had,they have changed their view! Finally I should say if you are looking forward to a perfect phone without consideration very beautiful design,S4 will be the best and unbeatable choice ;)

samsung mobile chief say '' Innovation is what will get consumers to buy new devices.'' but GALAXY S4 just copying what other phone can do they copy LG, NOKIA, HTC, AND NOW SONY FYI The Xperia sola was the first device from Sony to include Floating touch technology. The technology makes it possible for the smartphone to detect a finger up to 0.79 inches (20mm) above the screen. So mr shin where is the innovations???? Or ''DO YOU MEAN COPYING AND A LOT OF AD IS WHAT WILL GET CONSUMER TO BUY NEW DEVICES''

Whilst it's always tricky to comment on the quality of a phone screen without actually seeing it in real life, what seems to be the case with every video I have seen of the S IV so far is a noticeably white screen (as opposed to the blue tinge of the S3) and definitely very, very bright output, which has not been a Samsung AMOLED strong suit yet. Seems that now, they have solved this issues - an early well done!

Samsung lovers are beginning to sound like Apple nuts, what is so amazing about this design, it looks inexplicably like the Galaxy Note II...I wouldn't be surprised if it isn't using the exact same chassis. Samsung is really taking a play from Apple's book, this is like the iPhone, Iphone 3G, Iphone 3GS all looked strikingly similar with only a few marginal differences that you'd have to squint to see. Just as long as they didn't go HTC route with that stupid open face glass on the DNA that mess will shatter if it falls flat on it's face. I already had my first DNA do just that, now I need to have a case, I hate phone cases with a passion...Motorola still reigns supreme in build quality that I have used. HTC still low as usual.
