Physically, the GS4 didn’t get any bigger. In fact, it even sports a thinner build and weighs a hair lighter. But with a slimmer bezel, its 5-inch full HD Super AMOLED touch screen had room to expand, and the display now sports a higher pixel density.
Also new is its quad- or octo-core processor. Similar to the situation when the GS3 debuted, what CPU is available will depend on where you live.
Both cameras also got a bump, with the rear shooter jumping from 8-megapixel to 13-megapixel. Other changes include running the newer Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean (as expected), a beefed up battery, and a slew of new software features. And if you want to see how the GS4 compares to other flagship handsets, be sure to read our other chart.
