The Samsung Galaxy S4 received generally positive reviews from technology reviewers. Reviews praised the battery life, processing power, camera and display as being exceptionally good when compared to competing devices.
Although reviewers praised the phone's battery life, some consumers received units with batteries dead on arrival, which Samsung has offered to replace depending on the country the user resides in. Reviews note the quad-core processor as being powerful at juggling multiple applications at once. The 13 megapixel camera received praise for taking higher quality photos and videos than its competitors. The 5-inch display was noted as being crisp, clear and easy to look at.
