On the rear of the phone is a 13-megapixel camera with flash and on the front is a 2-megapixel affair for still and video calling.
However, Samsung has gone the extra mile with the camera and included a number of software tweaks to give more mode choices to users.
In contrast to a number of other handset makers, the outside of the chassis on the S4 is home to only a power button and volume rocker.
One of the new camera modes is called Dual Shot and uses both the front and rear cameras to take on photograph that includes the scene in front and behind the camera.
In the image above the front-facing camera was providing the main part of the picture (the Samsung demonstrator is on the left hand side and I'm next to him with the camera) while the inset heart is showing another member of the Samsung team stood in front of the device. Naturally, having the inset picture in a heart is a user-definable option.
Another new camera feature, called 'Sound and Shot', allows you to capture up to nine seconds of sound with each photo taken.
You can select whether you want the up to nine second audio clip to be captured from nine seconds before the photo is taken or the nine seconds after using on screen buttons (pictured).
There's also a new mode called 'Drama Shot' which creates a collage of images from a single picture by capturing motion. For example, if you were to take a picture of someone diving off a diving board, you would get several images starting with the diver stood at the top of the board all the way down to entering the water.
There's also an 'Eraser' mode that allows you to edit out moving or unwanted objects in the background of images.
