Samsung has adopted an Applesque policy of a tick-tock product iteration cycle with its latest Galaxy S4. Although the Galaxy S III had got a new design language which was later adopted on the entire version of the Galaxy phones, the Galaxy S4 has got the amazing hardware and software solutions. It can be said that the real innovation on software has launched in Galaxy S4. Moreover, it has added lots of features to Android and so now it’s hard to call it Android as it has got custom Touch Wiz experience.
The speculation is still going the round for the number of features that the Galaxy S4 has got. A spec sheet monster of sorts has been created by Samsung and after reading its list of features, an overwhelming response can be recorded with the amazing amount of features Samsung has offered in just one device.
Let’s take a look on the Samsung Galaxy S4 features:

- Dual-Shot: This feature in the camera of the phone activates both its cameras and allows the users to create a picture-in-picture type result. The placement of the image can be modulated by the user in the small box and allows the users to apply effects to them. This same goes for the video.
