Samsung's Galaxy S4 family tree

Samsung has now wrought five members of the Galaxy S4 family, and we won't lie to you: it's tough to tell them apart. Here they are, one by one.

The original Samsung Galaxy S4 brings high-end specs that include a 5-inch HD screen, a 13-megapixel camera, and a whole lotta processing muscle.
