Have you as a loyal Verizon subscriber been yearning for the latest Samsung smartphone, which is the flagship Samsung Galaxy S4, to arrive on your favorite mobile carrier? Well, fans of Verizon Wireless and the Samsung Galaxy S4, it seems that the length of your patient wait will soon come to an end with the announcement that the Galaxy S4 will hit Verizon this coming May 23. After all, it is a case of better late than never, don't you think so?

You will be able to pick up the Samsung Galaxy S4 via a couple of channels this May 23 - namely online as well as in Verizon Wireless Stores. Those who want to place a pre-order can do so for $199.99 a pop, and this is after a $50 mail-in rebate alongside a new two-year customer agreement. If you prefer to pick it up in the flesh, then you will have to wait until this May 30 to do so.

Just to refresh our memories, Samsung’s Galaxy S4 is definitely a game changer of sorts, refining what was already good and turning it into great. New photo features such as Dual Shot, when working in tandem with a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, will help you capture professional looking photographs, all the while letting you feel “inclusive” since the front-facing camera would also capture you simultaneously.

Samsung Galaxy S4 = Feature Overload

Not only that, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is a global traveler, where the included S Translator software functions as a multilingual pocket dictionary that is native to the smartphone, as it goes about translating words and phrases whenever you type or speak into it. The WatchON app on the Galaxy S4 too would transform a regular communications device into a home entertainment remote and personal TV guide, while Air View and Air Gesture allows you to interact with your smartphone without having to touch it, now how about that?

Too bad the color choices are limited to just two -  Black Mist or White Frost, although we have reliable word that an Arctic Blue could be due for an imminent release soon, first in Japan and hopefully, the rest of the world will follow afterwards.
