Samsung Galaxy S4 has Form over Function Issues

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Samsung recently held the launch for its newest smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S4, which will be released nationwide in the coming months. With a host of actors and an elaborate show depicting the new features, many are still signaling the initial media launch as a flop. Tech Expert Karl Volkman discusses where Samsung went wrong and what the phone needs to be a success.

“The Galaxy S4 boasts a selection of innovative features and standard upgrades, including the larger and higher resolution screen and updated Android operating system,” says Volkman of SRV Network, Inc. in Chicago.

But did the somewhat awkward press announcement blow the upcoming release? “While the phone offers updated features, Samsung must strive to have a near perfect release for optimal success. They have a month or so to focus on correcting any glitches to ensure the first users have the best experience possible,” continues Volkman. “With a camera that allows users to take pictures from the front and back of the camera simultaneously and a built in pedometer, the new features will wow the technology world. I think that by focusing on the functionality of the Galaxy S4 the release will go well.”
