Showdown: The smartphones waiting for the Samsung Galaxy S4
| by Roydon Cerejo
Samsung’s most awaited handset of 2013 will be unveiled in roughly 14 hours from now and has no doubt got Samsung’s fans waiting with baited breath. If the latest leaked images from Chinese site IT168 are anything to go by, then we already have a very fair idea of what the Galaxy S 4 will turn out to be.
Granted that these leaked images should be taken with a pinch of salt as we don’t know for sure what the final version will look like, but almost all leaked images, phone cases etc. that have leaked in the past just hours before launch have always been the real deal. So this one should be no exception.
The resolution will be Full HD, of course, which takes the pixel count to 440 ppi. The trouble with AMOLED is that it tends to gulp power at a very rapid rate when displaying whites, which only worsens when you bump up the resolution so high. To counter this, Samsung might use something called a greed PHOLED display, which is supposed to reduce the power draw by up to 25-30 percent. We haven’t seen the Optimus G Pro yet, but the closest competition for the S4’s screen right now seems to be from HTC One, which has really deep blacks and a crazy pixel count of 469 ppi.

We’ve already established that the Lumia 720 is Nokia’s best effort as far as Windows Phone 8 handsets go. This could soon change once the Lumia 925 hits markets, but as it stands now, the Lumia 720 offers the best blend of features and performance, wrapped in a beautiful package that’s quite affordable.
