A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog post which covered my five favorite features of the Samsung Galaxy S 4 (click for the review post here), powered by the AT&T 4 G LTE network. After using the phone for a month plus, I can officially say that this device is a wonderful smartphone for everything from business use, entertainment, on-the-go, and even students. As a mom of an almost tween and a teenage college student, I understand the importance of technology in our young people’s lives. The Samsung Galaxy S 4 is the perfect phone for Back to School, and I highly recommend it for students 13 years of age and up.
Why is this a good phone for students?
Simply put, the Samsung Galaxy S 4 is very reliable and can compliment a student’s lifestyle. They can answer emails, send and receive texts, take pretty amazing pictures, download and use apps that can help them stay organized and do homework. The phone is lightweight and sturdy, yet big enough not to get lost in backpacks and side pockets. It also has a nice screen size that can allow your student to multitask. You can also check their usage and data online.
Although I am an Apple enthusiast through and through, I am a fan of the Android OS and the personalization you can do with it. You can change the font, user interface picture, and so much more. It allows your student to truly personalize their experience while using it. And because when it comes to Android, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is one of the best Androids on the market, hands down. So when you purchase one for your student, you know they’ve got the best.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is available on many mobile profiles, which gives you the opportunity to purchase your student a phone without having to change carriers. With the AT&T 4 G LTE network, you are getting a carrier that was rated highest for customer support (click here to read more). For the first time ever this year, JD Power and Associates ranked AT&T highest for customer care satisfaction amongst full service wireless carriers. Here in St. Louis, Rootmetrics rated AT&T 4 G LTE fastest for data speeds compared to other providers (click here to read more). I’ve tested the Samsung Galaxy 4 S on the AT&T 4 G LTE network here against my other device powered by Verizon 4 G LTE, and I can say they were pretty much neck and neck. So for your student, that is a win/win.
Here’s the meat and potatoes:
- Does it improve my lifestyle? YES
- Is it easy (and fun) to use? Enjoyability. YES
- How fast can I complete tasks? FAST (and I was pretty impressed with how fast I could switch apps. No lag)
- Use compared to other devices (this phone is better than any other phone I have, including the iPhone 4S. I haven’t compared it to the iPhone 5)
- Price point and network. This phone is a little more expensive than others on the market (with 2 year contract, it’s $199- $399 full price), but you can always catch a deal. And with AT&T, they are offering trade in value for most devices.
Send your student Back to School with the Samsung Galaxy S4. It’s Cubicle Chick approved!
