Galaxy S4 Mini Review
9 May 2014
Summary: Samsung successfully brought everything customers loved about the Galaxy S4 into the Galaxy S4 Mini, giving those who prefer a phone with a 4-inch screen something to enjoy. Sure – the S4 Mini doesn’t have the specs of the Galaxy S4, but it’s still able to offer a great experience for those looking for a mid-range phone of this size.
Summary: Just as its name implies, the $49.99 Galaxy S4 Mini is a scaled-down version of the Galaxy S4. And while you don't get such features as Air View or Eraser Mode, you do get a phone that's easy to use with one hand, a built-in remote control and a capable 8-MP camera. However, while the AMOLED screen is colorful, it's not as sharp or bright as competing phones' displays, and the speaker doesn't wow.
Pros: Lots of features, Easy to use with one hand, Removable battery and microSD
Cons: Below-average battery life, Lower resolution and dimmer screen than competitors, Lackluster audio
Conclusion: The GALAXY S 4 Mini is a wonderful little cell phone, and is surprisingly reminiscent of the older Galaxy S 2, though bringing with it all the trimmings of a newer device. The smartphone sits well in one's hand (the position of the power button aside), and is small enough to slip into just about any pocket or sleeve. Despite feeling small in the hand, the Mini avoids feeling too small when it comes to the display.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini is not merely a smaller version of the Android powerhouse, lacking as it does the same impressive lineup of specs as its big brother. Nevertheless, it still packs plenty of power and a decent screen into a very comfortable little body. It's just too expensive for what it is.
Cons: Mid-range specs don't justify high price; Multitude of settings won't appeal to newbies.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini is exactly how you'd expect it to be - it offers a scaled-down version of the full-fat S4 for a lower price. The bright screen, expandable storage and great camera make it one of the best mid-range Android devices available at the moment, but when you consider that the S4 itself can be obtained for around £150 more, you need to seriously think if you're going to be happy with second-best.
Samsung Galaxy S4 mini – If you want a more compact and affordable S4, this phone is for you
24 August 2013
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy S4 mini was just released last month and has made its way to Europe, North America and Asian countries – pretty much all the major markets. The $459 (unlocked, no contract) price seems pretty high – that’s about the same as the Galaxy S3 (which features similar hardware specs), but I guess that’s the price you pay for the small size/weight and S4 moniker.
