150-WORD BOOK REVIEW: Samsung Galaxy S4 for Dummies

samsung_galaxy_s4_for_dummiesThe Samsung Galaxy S4 is one of the smarter smartphones out there and a cursory read-through of its manual is not enough for a device that is layered as this one is.

The ‘For Dummies’ stable of books work on a very simple premise. Choose an expert to write the book, edit it minutely and lay it out in a very easy to read format that works for ‘dummies’ predominantly, but also for wannabe geeks.

This particular title comes in at exactly full colour 300 pages and costs £17.99/$24.99. That sounds a lot of money for what many would consider a glorified set of instructions, but it’s good value if you regard your smartphone as a computer rather than a mobile telephone.

Review: 8/10
