So, the S4 doesn’t have Optical Image Stabilization but it does have Digital Image Stabilization. Check out my HTC ONE test:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmUjQs5GG5A
The HTC One has optical image stabilization unlike the Galaxy S4. It does not need to crop the image! Here is how it handles the dark!
Unboxing the S4, giving impressions, showing comparisons with HTC One and discussing screen quality, along with black clipping. Also showing some case options.
*S4 DOES HAVE IMAGE STABILIZATION!!*

Galaxy S4 In-Depth First Impressions
How does this 4 megapixel ultrapixel camera do in perfect daylight in full HD?
HTC One has a lot of cool camera features, but first, you have to learn how to access them and use them!
I am really loving the way that this phone feels…except, I am noticing that it is not as well put together as the display models at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. Hopefully the quality will improve over time. Poor HTC is really struggling, but the product itself is pretty darn snazzy!
I finally say which device I prefer lol. The HTC ONE really catches my attention. But will it keep my attention vs the S4??? We shall see!!!
Black clipping seen on S4?
Well…Samsung has a tendency for some interesting “optimizations” or just post processing of images and video. On the Exynos version of the S3 all video and gallery profiles were manipulated by Samsung’s mDNIe processing. They made images too dark too quickly. So if you saw a gradient, think of a shadow, then there would be no smooth gradient (light to dark) just lighter end of gradient then suddenly dark! All the steps in between were gone and if anything appeared in these in-between steps they would be simply blacked out. It sucks when watching dark scenes in movies. Nearly nothing is visible, except the light-most points of the image!
I saw some evidence of this with my hands on with the S4. I am hoping it only affects the gallery profile and leaves video alone!
It’s a gigantic Galaxy Note II!!! But is it as good? How does it stack up to the iPad mini???
