Was It A Conscious Move?

Samsung is known for its innovation, variant products, but it’s quite an odd timing to come up with a S4 Active which has more features and has a potential to steal the S4 customers. But S4 Active fits very well in Samsung family in terms of health and this phone is going to be a closest rival to Sony Xperia Z.

Sony apparently made lot of sales through Xperia Z, and Xperia Z became a close competitor for S4, though it lacked better software it did quite well in the market because of its water and dust proof features.

Features

When it comes to looks Xperia is made of premium glass, it is quite sophisticated and looks very high-end and it is quite light whereas Samsung S4 Active is quite chunkier and with the exposed screws and industrial styling it does not look that high-end but when it comes to software S4 Active has more features than Xperia Z and has potential to steal Xperia’s customers.

Samsung Company’s innovative features have allowed the products to rise from nowhere to total world dominance, in just a few years. Samsung is coming up with variety of products S4 with Stock Android and there were rumors that it is working on a Fancy Galaxy Smartphone possibly one with an aluminum shell-like HTC One. Samsung is coming up with so many products; it’s going to be quite hard for its global counter parts to compete with it.
