    I like Samsung Galaxy S4 and it’s lockscreen…

    Ok, to be fair, I was going to blast this as just a tweak on every other phone on the market, but it seems that Samsung actually did some INNOVATION on this device; and for that I applaud them. For example, the phone tracks your eyes, and as long as you are looking at the device, it won’t dim the display. Smart Alerts that tracks notifications and tells you what happened since the last time you checked your phone – in order of importance. This is good stuff, something that the rest of the herd will hopefully copy and enhance even more.
    Other good stuff is the S-Beam to allow 300 Mbps transfer of photos or files between phones.

    The rest of the stuff is the gradual improvements, that one expects to see in new flagships. Better camera (capable of bursting 20 shots at 8MP), Simultaneous photo/video, face zoom, social integration and the other improvements one would expect.

    But, kudos to Samsung for the innovation part. This gives something for Apple and everyone else to copy. I applaud the innovation and new ideas.

      If you love Samsung, then what are you doing in Cydia. iOS lockscreen doesn’t work in Samsung Galaxy s4.
