Hence, for those, who have a habit of getting different images and shoot videos frequently, this can be a perfect device.
Battery and storage
A powerful battery support and good storage capacity are pre-requisites of a smartphone as in the absence of any one of them; the purpose is not solved. Though it is a budget Smartphone, Samsung Z4 doesn’t fail to impress on both the fronts.

Samsung Z4 definitely seems to be one of the best picks in the lower segment. The internal storage of 8GB at such low price is impeccable. One more feature which must be noted is the camera which offers both rear and front 5 MP cameras. The device looks promising but only time will tell the fate of the device since it is newly launched. It would take some time for people to buy and use it which can ascertain the real performance of the device. But it has what it takes to survive in competition. For people with limited budget, it is the best choice.
