The Samsung Galaxy S4 is More Expensive To Build Than an iPhone 5

Posted by on May 11, 2013 in Debates | 0 comments

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is more expensive to build than an iPhone 5, according to the statements of the IHS institute. The research institute IHS announced that Samsung Galaxy S4 32GB version cost more to build than an iPhone 5 32GB version also. Costs are estimated at respectively 237 and 217 U.S. dollars. The study also shows that Samsung, unlike most manufacturers, keeps most of the internal production process. “Samsung’s strength is the ability to be able to rely on itself“, Vincent Leung said, an analyst at IHS. However, we can not say either that Samsung does not import anything from outside. For smartphone versions destined for U.S. markets, the Korean uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 600, while for the versions marketed in South Korea, the model incorporates a processor “homemade”, the Exynos, the cost of production is higher for...

Galaxy S4 And Storage Space, The Korean Company Responds To The Controversy

Posted by on May 8, 2013 in Debates | 0 comments

One of the recent controversies about the Samsung Galaxy S4 is its storage space. Actually, concerning the 16 GB version, only 8.8 to 9.6 GB is available to the user. Samsung has officially responded to this controversy. The controversy came out after the CNET has tested the delivery default factory settings. Obviously, after this parameter “reset” , the user no longer has that 8.49 GB. Samsung responded: “For the 16GB Galaxy S4 , about 6.85 GB is occupied by the system, which is more than 1 GB on S3, in order to provide a higher screen resolution  and more powerful functions for our customers” The answer is way far from “clear”. Indeed, the screen resolution elements require a relatively better definition, larger images … which of course have an impact on the size of the files needed to run...

Test Of The Gorilla Glass 3 Screen For The Galaxy S4

Posted by on Apr 22, 2013 in Test | 0 comments

During the presentation of the Galaxy S4, one of the strong points was his Gorilla Glass 3 screen.   For information, Corning Gorilla Glass is a type of alkali-aluminosilicate glass developed by Corning for smartphones, tablets and other non-touchscreen devices. Gorilla Glass is scratch-resistant technology used by more than 33 brands which are installed on more than 900 different models. Remember, at CES in Las Vegas in January 2013, Corning formalized the third generation of its “Gorilla Glass 3” which improves its resistance to damage by 40%, and a 50% of preservation of its resistance technology, if ever the glass is cracked. In short, virtually scratch-proof (well in theory), in any case, endurance seems to go against an army knife, keys and coins… Even if most of you might expect a crash test to get a concise...
