Now that Samsung finally unveiled the Galaxy S IV, does it live up to the hype? The hardware is nice, but not revolutionary. It has a quad-core processor and a 5-inch screen with a better resolution than Retina. It ships with 2 gigs of RAM and up to 64 gigs of memory, which can be added to with a microSD card. Software is where the GS4 stands out. It ships with Jelly Bean and has features like AirView and AirBrowse, which use gesture controls to scroll through photo galleries or websites. Smart Pause will pause your video if you look away from the screen while watching something. Samsung also included some of its own software on the phone, like a health tracker and a translator that supports 10 languages at launch. The phone will be available by the end of April, but no price was announced yet. Samsung was right: The next big thing is here. It’s just not the Second Coming.
