The new Galaxy S 4 might not be equipped with any ground-breaking feature to get the top rank but still thanks to its great mix of software and hardware, the phone manages to stand out from the competition, and right at the top shelf.

Its touchwiz interface and Hyperglaze finish might not be everyone’s favourite but for people who can live with shortcomings, this will be the best phone they can get right now.
