Edited by Mohsin, Charmed, Eng, Leomar Umpad
Samsung Latest Flagship device, Samsung Galaxy S4, arrived with a lot of new features like eye tracking, S-Health etc. One of the most amazing part about this Giant is the feature of Air-View, personally my favorite. Air-View was first introduced in Galaxy Note2 then the next OS update from Samsung allows all the devices on Android 4.2.2 to use the features of Air-View.
For all those who don't know what is Air-View, allow me to explain it to you. The Air - View is basically the information of the file on which you hover your finger or Stylus. It allows you to know most of the desired file without any need of opening it, For Example, if you want to watch a specific part of the video but you are not sure in which video is it, just hover your finger over the video and you will see the thumbnail of the video, confirm the part and then tap to open and watch that video.
