The Samsung Galaxy S4 is jam packed with features. Some look pretty useful, others look like a gimmick to add a bullet point on the back of the box. Many of the Samsung Galaxy S4 specs we knew already: screen size, processor, storage space, etc. The Korean company though announced numerous software features they plan on coupling with their Samsung Galaxy S4.

+ Samsung Galaxy S4 Photo Features

Samsung's flagship handset comes equipped with a 13 megapixel camera and doesn't skimp on software features. One feature gave users the ability to take photos of their family and also be in the photo, utilizing the phone's front facing camera. Another feature showed how the phone handles pedestrians walking in the back of one's pictures: the subjects stay still and the phone removes all moving things behind them.

They even announced features in regards to video chat: video callers have the ability to show others what the front-facing camera sees as well as the back simultaneously. Provided these features work as well as when they're demoed, all of these could greatly benefit users of the Samsung Galaxy S4.

- Smart Pause

Is this necessary? I can imagine a couple of actual use cases where this may come in handy (quickly checking a next stop on the bus, insurmountable laziness) but is this really a good reason to charge users extra battery life? I guess having it as an option isn't too bad, should you want to show it off.
