Memory cards allow you to expand the phone's built-in memory, A memory card (sometimes called a flash memory card or a storage card) is a small storage medium used to store data such as text, pictures, audio, and video, for use on small, portable or remote computing devices such as mobile phones, mp3 players, digital cameras.
    Yes, microSD, up to 64 GB
  • Sensors Sensors are electronic components that detects and responds to some type of input from the physical environment. The specific input could be light, heat, motion, moisture, pressure and location, The output is generally a signal that is converted to use in computing systems, a location sensor, such as a GPS receiver is able to detect current location of your electronic device.
    Accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass

Camera

  • Primary Camera is able to capture photographs and usually videos, The most important characteristics of a camera are the resolution (measured in megapixels), lens focus type (fixed or automatic), higher megapixel cameras are known to capture higher quality photos, but not always a good measurement of the photos quality.
    16 mega pixels
  • Video
    Yes, 1080p@30fps, optical stabilization
  • Camera Features
    Autofocus, 10x optical zoom (24-240mm), optical image stabilization, geo-tagging, touch focus, face and smile detection, HDR, panorama
  • Flash Flash Light => There is commonly two types of flash lights are used in camera mobile phones, LED Flash (LED flash offers lower power consumption with drive circuitry that takes up very little room, LEDs can be strobed faster than any other light source), Xenon Flash (xenon flash produces an extremely intense full-spectrum white light for a very short duration)
    Xenon flash
  • Front Camera
    Yes, 1.9 MP

Network

  • SIM SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) is a small card that contains mobile network subscriber's account information. This allows the phone using the card to attach to a mobile network. The SIM card is most commonly associated with GSM and UMTS mobile networks. Moving a SIM card from one phone to another allows a subscriber to switch mobile phones without having to contact their mobile network carrier. SIM cards can also be used by a phone to store limited amounts of data, such as phone numbers and text messages.
    Micro SIM
  • 3G Network

Connectivity

  • Wi-fi Wi-Fi is a popular wireless networking technology using radio waves to provide high-speed network connections that allows devices to communicate without cords or cables, Wi-Fi is increasingly becoming the preferred mode of internet connectivity all over the world.
  • GPS GPS The Global Positioning System is a satellite-based radio navigation system, GPS permits users to determine their position, velocity and the time 24 hours a day, in all weather, anywhere in the world, In order to locate your position, your device or GPS receiver must have a clear view of the sky.
  • Bluetooth Bluetooth is a wireless communications technology for exchanging data between mobile phones, headsets, computers and other network devices over short distances without wires, Bluetooth technology was primarily designed to support simple wireless networking of personal consumer devices.
  • Infrared Infrared connectivity is an old wireless technology used to connect two electronic devices. It uses a beam of infrared light to transmit information and so requires direct line of sight and operates only at close range.
  • NFC NFC (Near field communication) is a set of standards for smartphones and similar devices to establish peer-to-peer radio communications with each other by touching them together or bringing them into proximity, usually no more than a few inches.

Just a quick twist of the Galaxy S4 zoom’s front-mounted zoom ring, followed by a quick touch of the display, lets you dial up different camera modes from: Auto, Gallery, Smart Mode, Manual, Program, and more by with the all-new My mode.

The zoom control re-imagined. Optical zoom control replaces traditional dials and buttons with smooth, easy-to-operate digital controls. Professional-quality accuracy and unprecedented ease of use are just a quick twist of the zoom ring away, making it easy to capture wide-angle shots and create tight-focus effects

Shooting in a hurry doesn’t have to mean shooting blurry. The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom’s Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) system gives images crisp focus, even if you’re not perfectly still. Don’t miss a shot worrying about the right conditions. Click with confidence and create photos and video that come out sharp and clear—even in low-light situations, when zooming in for a shot, or while you’re on the move.
