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.
Samsung's own branded Hub is still present on the handset, but instead of offering different Hubs for music, books, films and games, they are now all found in one place, making it much more convenient to access your content.
The music service 7Digital will continue to provide the musical element of Samsung Hub as it has done in previous generations of Samsung's Galaxy S devices. It also provides the store for BlackBerry Music.
Another notable feature found on previous generations of Galaxy but evolved for the S4 include Group Play for music, photos and games.
This feature allows multiple people to view or listen to the same content in real-time by sharing it between handsets without the need for a mobile or Wi-Fi signal using Wi-Fi Direct connectivity.
Connecting up two phones to play music creates a stereo set up and this can be increased (if there are enough handsets in the room) up to creating a 5.0 surround sound set up. The image above shows a two speaker stereo setup.
