If you haven't had a chance to read about all of the Galaxy S4's new features, or would like a more in-depth look at them, you might want to check out this new promotional video which goes over more than a dozen new Galaxy S4 features, including S-Health, Air Play and Optical Reader.
Looking at all of the new features, it sometimes feels like Samsung is trying to do a million things at once with the release of this phone. They're trying to transform your phone into a personal assistant, remote control, fitness trainer, professional camera, and more…all in the hopes that at least some of these features will resonate with consumers.
Some of the features, like Dual Camera – which allows you to record videos using your front and back-facing cameras simultaneously – seem a bit gimmicky, but Samsung is betting there's someone out there who will absolutely love them.
All that said, this short video contains nearly every argument for buying a Galaxy S4 instead of an HTC One or Sony Xperia Z. There are just so many innovative new features that no other manufacturer has thought of yet. I think the video could end up resonating with a lot of people. Check it out below and let us know whether its magic worked on you.
