Good: Good performance, light UI layer over Android, stellar battery life, curved screen is great for watching videos/playing games. Not Good: Grainy display, slightly cheap feel, HUGE. The Bottom Line: A G2 with a big, curved screen. A great phone, but pricey at $300 w/ contract or $800 off-contract for a grainy display.
Finally, we are released from the clutches of rumors, leaks and speculation; the Galaxy S4 was officially revealed last night at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall. The unveiling event, full of glitz and glam, looked like an Oscar’s Awards ceremony with a pinch of Broadway, but this is a tech blog, not a theater review.
