How to Use the Samsung Galaxy 4

The new Samsung Galaxy 4 is a true state-of-the-art smartphone. With a design and functionality that surpasses Apple's much-hyped iPhone 5, Samsung has truly shown its stripes this time.

With a super wide full HD screen, slim bezel, and polycarbonate body, the Galaxy 4 is lighter and thinner than many of its competitors. Users should expect to take some time to learn all the device's many features, as well as personalize settings and capabilities. As always, eBay is the perfect place to find all things Samsung, including the Galaxy 4.
