Many New Features in The Software of The Samsung Galaxy S4

by | April 5, 2017

The new Samsung Galaxy S4 confirmed many of the rumors that were taking place these days in terms of the hardware: the new flagship of the South Korean manufacturer is a clear evolution of the S III, but there are a number of software components he rounded the experience.

Indeed, there are many new software that were protagonists during the presentation of the S4 in the Samsung Unpacked event. This set of applications precisely will try to be one of the top attractions of these terminals, and should make a review of all these new developments software.

Smart Pause

One of the aspects that were responsible for the launch was the function Smart Pause, making use of the front-facing camera Samsung Galaxy S4 to stop the video playback intelligently.

To play a video on this smartphone, the front-facing camera will detect if we are watching the video: If we take the view, the video will remain in pause until we return to look at the screen. In the following video you can see how it works:

Smart Scroll

One of the first interesting improvements is Smart Scroll, which in the end is not as ambitious as it was rumored and It will not be based on front camera device.

Thus, Smart Scroll will not allow to control the scrolling of texts and applications with the eyes (at least not for now), but yea try to help in that section: when we are looking at the screen, you can tilt smartphone up or down to move us in that sense without having to use your finger. Smart Scroll you can see in action in the next video.

Dual Camera, Dual Video Call & Sound and Shot

This function allows you to take simultaneous capture the front camera and rear camera creating an action that makes the person taking the image also may be part of the best quality taken with rear camera capture. In the following video you can see the Dual Camera feature in action.

This mode includes 12 different shooting modes and additional property Sound and Shot It allows to record small audio files that are associated with the photos and that can be helpful as well as annotations (in travel, for example) how to send pictures with messages customized to family, friends and acquaintances.

That use of both cameras can also be used for the function Dual Video Call, allowing users to share what they are seeing with rear camera while making a video call, without having to turn the phone, another convenient option for those who take advantage of especially those video calls and that also integrates with the new version of ChatON, that now allows video calls to 3 bands.

Group Play

If you like sharing music or videos with your friends another new Galaxy S4 software will come you like ring finger: Group Play allows a same song to play simultaneously in up to 8 devices.

The function has interesting features such as the possibility of creating a multi-channel audio system (for example 5.1) by combining different phones that separate sound channels when combined to generate that unique “surround” sound.

With Group Play is also possible play multiplayer games and the option will also be useful for photo-sharing (via NFC technology) easily with a group of users who join our smartphone with that function. In the official video of the event can see that option in action from minute 38:40.

S Translator

S Translator is a translator via software that need connection to nearly all of its benefits, and offers 9 language support (Chinese, French, German, English, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, and Spanish) and both as text dictation speech recognition.

This ability also allows use in addition the function offline that will not need a data connection and that will offer a catalog of 3,000 very common phrases and useful to use them in those conversations abroad. In the official video of the event we just show it to you in the feature Group Play is possible to check how it behaves this function from min 23:30.

Air View and Air Gesture

Samsung has taken some borrowed features of the Samsung Galaxy Note II, and this time Air View and Air Gesture they become famous from this manufacturer phablet S Pen pointers to our fingers.

With these two features we can keep finger within walking distance from screen to preview content, the first lines of e-mail messages or to increase the size of something. The Manager allowed that We are in control of the displacement passing your hand over the screen and to the right or left. Both features are curious but almost anecdotal, but can come in handy, for example if we have their hands while we eat and want to control the movement of content that we are seeing. The feature video, then.

S Health

The new Samsung Galaxy S4 includes a pedometer that allows you to record the number of steps that we give or we run during the day, but also measured conditions such as temperature or humidity, information that is taken into account in the application S Health, intended to that physical activity monitor.

As in previous versions of the application, S Health can also make use of additional accessories such as blood pressure gauges or indicators of glucose that through Bluetooth connectivity can provide these data in the application. In addition, Samsung will sell other accessories such as a Bracelet with integrated pedometer We can then synchronize via Bluetooth with the application and it behaves as systems of third parties existing in the market as the FitBit. More details in the video:

WatchON

Among the improvements to the hardware of the new Galaxy S4 is the inclusion of an infrared LED It allows to control various functions and to become a perfect universal remote to this terminal.

This feature supports the MHL 2.0 standard (Mobile High-Definition Link) that focuses on providing this support in electronic equipment and is an interesting extra capacity for these terminals.

Samsung Knox

Other paragraphs to which attention has been paid is the use of the new terminal as devices perfect for BYOD philosophy (Bring Your Own Device), since this model integrates the technology Samsung Knox.

Knox is a system that allows you to separate the activity of the phone in two clear profiles: a professional profile protection of data and applications oriented to the company, and a personal profile that will allow to use the same S4 Galaxy while maintaining the privacy of such personal information, for example that even children can use this mobile to see movies or photos.

Conclusions

There are some additional enhancements more – as the characteristic that modifies the tones of the fonts and background in long reading sessions to avoid the tiredness of eyes – and both those supports and all the applications that are included in the new Samsung Galaxy S4 confirm the bet from this manufacturer for trying to differentiate themselves in the software now the battle hardware is increasingly more compliada.
