Samsung Galaxy S4 – Review

Hey, I know that Galaxy S4 is pretty old (may or june 2013) but I just wanted to post my opinion too.
I bought this phone from the Orange Store, actually I wanted to buy an iPhone 5 but they didn’t have it on stock at that moment! I wanted an iPhone for the operating system, iOS which I think it’s much better than android. I didn’t want to buy a Galaxy S4 at first but I’ve been looking for some opinions and I was like.. I will give it a chance!
I guess you know the specs of the phone but I will re-post them below and I will tell you what attracts me with the phone!

Being honest with you.. I make a lot of photos and sometimes the first thing I look at when I buy a new phone is the camera quality.
In my opinion the first days with this phone were great (the phone still works great, have it since a week). Works pretty much how I wanted it to! Smoothly.

The photos below are shoot with the phone and they are downloaded from my Instagram (follow me here vladchris), which means that the quality is not the best one but if I don’t forget I will post a original picture, unedited!

If you have any questions leave a comment!:)
