Wataniya has become Ooredoo as of summer 2014.
These days, phones almost operate as an extension of ourselves; their ability to keep us connected to loved-ones, to business networks and contacts, and our ever-increasing reliance on the information they provide to us is enough to make it feel like an added limb. With each year revealing a new model and mode, like clockwork, many have been eagerly anticipating the next launch from the Samsung Galaxy series; in walks the Samsung Galaxy S4.
By the time you read this Samsung will have officially released the S4 to all the normal fanfare you would expect from the latest, hottest gadget. Here in the press offices, we relish the extra ten seconds we get to play with these new toys before they hit the street. So here, the verdict is already in: as the fourth generation of Samsung smartphone, the new S4 comes packed full of ALL the innovative features and functions you would expect, but with enough extra features to keep you entertained. The sleek design additionally helps to keep that intangible and cool tactile feeling of holding the future in your hands.
One of the key features that needs to be addressed here is the ability to multi-task. Anyone, who has ever been mid-call hung-up on as the person on the other end switched to something else or, worse- been in one app attempting to switch to another, only to have the whole thing freeze up on you, knows how important this is. They bill it as the ultimate productivity device, and I think this may be well earned as it is designed with the multi-tasker in mind. You can call a friend, answer the phone, preview emails and control videos without even touching the phone—for starters. With the Smart Call Accept feature, you can answer the phone and have it turn on the speakerphone with the wave of a hand. Additionally, when you connect your Samsung Galaxy S4 to your home entertainment system, it can suggest TV programs based on what you like. You can also access your personal HomeSync system from all devices and remotely share with friends and family.
The interactivity between devices is one of the big things about this phone that clearly separates this from others and, thus, keeps you more connected. You and your friends can share screens as well as explore each other’s favorite music, files, and games. The Samsung Galaxy S4 not only overcomes barriers of distance but also breaks down language barriers via its translator chat function. For those of you expats out there, you know how often this can come in handy!
It can additionally help you achieve your fitness goals by monitoring your fitness levels during workouts and throughout the day. It also cares for your general health with sensors that automatically adjust the display and volume – depending on how you are using it. Samsung’s new S Health app monitors how much you’ve walked, how many calories you’ve burned, and what you’ve eaten.
Now that everybody’s favorite and most used camera is the phone itself, we should discuss camera functions; here again you will not be let done by all the innovation that has gone into this. First off, it’s the absolute prerequisite to talk megapixels, that previously unknown vernacular of measurement that now is as commonplace as pie. This one is 13MP! DID you hear that, world? 13! I remember when having an oversized camera that could produce 4MP was a really big deal. Either people are going to have to start getting prettier or we are going to have to start taking pictures from further away. But, I digress, where were we-yes, innovation: every picture you take on the Samsung Galaxy S4 can come with sound, thus offering a soundtrack to that photo you took so you no longer have to sing at it late at night whilst inhaling Cheetos and crying over love lost. Now you can remember what was said, played, and heard, not just what it looked like. It adds another layer of excitement to help you relive and share every moment of each picture much more vividly. You can also now capture the ‘I was there’ moments of your life by simultaneously shooting with the front and rear cameras, using their “dual shot” technology.
For those who are in the market for a new phone with innovative features that seem a world-if not a galaxy(!)- a way from the completion, the S4 is a strong standout. With more ways to seamlessly meld into your life, as smart technology should, and as the modern consumer demands—you can’t go wrong here!
