Local Event: Sprint NYC Event & Product Review: The Samsung GALAXY S4 #SprintMom


I was invited to attend a Sprint NYC Event at Sprint Executive Briefing Center last week.  The focus was on the new and innovative technology, devices and apps that Sprint has to offer.  And let me tell you there are plenty!

So guess who won the Samsung Galaxy S4???? Yup! Me 🙂  Below are the deets on the phone….

The Samsung GALAXY S4:

I am an avid iPhone user so to switch over to the GALAXY is going to be an interesting feat. Part of the problem with iPhones is as soon as I purchased the iPhone 4, the iPhone 4S came and was followed soon by the iPhone 5 and now the 5s and c.  Oh well….. such is the life

I do have questions about the Samsung Galaxy like…

Can the new Samsung Galaxy S4 still hold its head high and be called the best of the best in comparison to the new iPhone? And how does it cope with the rigors of the day-to-day life of a mom?

While I realize that my old iPhone 5 isn’t the newest technology, and therefore it could be argued that the comparison is unfair, there aren’t as many differences in the technology between iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 as Apple would like you to believe. The basics are the same.

The obvious larger screen size with Galaxy S4 is preferred if you’re like me and often work from your phone. As a blogger, I need to access emails, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and a myriad of other applications with which the larger screen was made more convenient.

Out of the box you get a variety of things so lets break those down:

  • The Phone
  • Battery
  • USB Cable
  • Charger
  • Headset
  • Information booklet SIM card

Other features you are sure to love:

  • 5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED™ display
  • 13-megapixel camera with simultaneous dual photo capture
  • Easy Mode simplifies use, so you can explore at your own pace
  • Air Gesture™ and Air View™ makes your touchscreen touch-free

Disclosure: I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Sprint. I won The Samsung GALAXY S4 at the event which I used to facilitate my review.  I was not financially compensated for this review.
