The Samsung Galaxy S4 uses Samsung's in-house Emoji. These are designed to look great on your phone, but unfortunately, they have serious compatibility issues with iPhones, Windows Phones, and BlackBerry devices. Fortunately, there is an easy fix to this issue. You simply have to replace your keyboard and emoji set with ones that were developed for cross-platform compatibility. You can use the recommendation in the VisiHow article below, but Handcent's Emoji only work in the Handcent SMS app. Instead, you can follow the instructions below to replace your Samsung Galaxy S4's keyboard and emoji set with cross-platform compatible Emoji that you can use in any application.
