The features that have been implemented on the phone are, most of them, the same as what the original Galaxy S4 ships with. Apart from the operating system we mentioned, you will notice a wide variety of exclusive software features offered by Samsung themselves. Some of the most noticeable ones are these: S Health, S Translator, STravel and so on. Aqua Mode is the name of a software feature which will help you snap great when you’re underwater.
