Samsung Galaxy S4 named best smartphone by Consumer Reports

Believe the hype: The Samsung Galaxy S4 really is the finest slab of pocket tech around, according to the US equivalent of Which?.

In its regular round-up of new tech, influential consumer website Consumer Reports names the Samsung Galaxy S4 as its "top-rated new smartphone" for what it describes as “top-notch performance in the most critical areas of our tests”.

The handset, which beat the surprisingly highly-rated LG Optimus G to take the site’s top spot, was singled out for its “excellent five-inch, high-definition (1080p) touch-screen display”, as well as its “oodles of gesture- and sensor-based tools for accessing and sharing content you create and capture on your phone”.

As a measure of Consumer Reports’ influence on the buying habits of our friends over The Pond, it’s perhaps telling just how many tech sites are today hosting the story of the Galaxy S4’s success.

It’s also worth noting that Apple has in the past seemingly only been moved to acknowledge battery problems with earlier editions of the iPhone after Consumer Reports turned its eviscerating eye their way.

News of the Galaxy S4’s triumph comes after Samsung forecast that its flagship phone will reach ten million sales this week, having gone on sale on April 26th and 27th across the globe.
