Samsung Galaxy S4
Samsung Galaxy S4 Samsung’s latest smartphone is getting good reviews. The Galaxy S IV is on par with the quality and user-friendly features Samsung is known for, but there is a little extra in this phone. It has one feature that seems to be of particular interest- eye scrolling. Samsung representatives are quick to say that the phone is another quality product from Samsung, even without this latest feature, but the feature certainly doesn’t hurt.
At the very least, the eye scrolling feature gets technology that much closer to a completely integrated experience for the user. By using the line of sight for the user, the phone makes it even more convenient for the mother feeding a child or the exercise buff on his or her walking equipment. By the same token, it can prove to be a challenge to watch eye movements enough to make sure the screen is controlled.
The phone locks on the user’s eyes and tracks where they go, allowing users to scroll with their line of sight. The example was given of a user reading an article and reaching the bottom of the screen. The scrolling feature automatically turns the page or scrolls forward to additional text. In addition to the hands-free reading, it also watches the user so that the lights on the screen won’t dim before the user puts it down.
This feature is also on the Samsung Galaxy S III, which has also received high praises from users. Of course, with the already raging debate concerning online and user privacy, a phone that watches the user may come under scrutiny. Users should be careful in downloading apps, making sure to read the EULA for each program. They can also set the privacy settings on their phones so that they are in control over who has access to their content.
