The Samsung Galaxy S IV not only comes with the latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, but also packs the latest TouchWiz UI version, which is more feature-rich than ever. There’s also beast of a processor inside, the 13MP camera and, of course, the 5″ full HD Super AMOLED display.

So, should Galaxy S III owners upgrade to the Galaxy S 4? It’s way too early to tell but by the looks of it, Samsung did a great job with the upgrade and will certainly make many consider it.
