Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini

CNET
8 October 2013
  • 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.
  • Pros: Small, comfortable size; Vivid screen; Plenty of power for most tasks; Decent camera.
  • Cons: Mid-range specs don't justify high price; Multitude of settings won't appeal to newbies.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Review: In Depth

Recombu
22 July 2013
  • Conclusion: Our biggest gripe with the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini is its price, given the phone's middling specs. So while it isn't bad by any means, its dual-cores, 8GB memory and qHD screen fail to compete with the cheaper, more powerful Google Nexus 4, Nokia Lumia 920, Samsung Galaxy S3 or Sony Xperia SP to name a few. If you love the pocketable design and can find a great deal on the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini therefore, you probably won't be dissapointed.
  • Pros: Compact form factor, Great battery life, Expandable memory
  • Cons: Gallery performance issues, Low resolution screen, Expensive

Review Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini GT-I9195 Smartphone

Notebookcheck
17 July 2013
  • Summary: Little giant. Not long ago, it would have been unthinkable to give a 4.3-inch smartphone the title "Mini" - but times change. The new Galaxy S4 Mini is a smaller version of the current Samsung flagship. Can it live up to the Galaxy S4 name?
  • Pros: Good performance, Main camera results, Manufacturing quality, Communication equipment, Infrared port, Very good display, Despite the fact that it has a plastic case, the smartphone feels good in your hand - you get the sense that it's high-quality and tough. The Super AMOLED display does its job excellently.
  • Cons: Price, Slightly high temperature, Low resolution front camera, The Galaxy S4's Full HD resolution is enticing. We'd like to have seen a higher resolution on the S4 Mini.

Expert Review

  • Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy S4 mini is a remarkable mid-range smartphone that brings power and portability under one roof. It is fast, responsive, and surprisingly capable, but at the same time it is easy to operate and fits perfectly in pockets of any size. Sure, the smartphone may not be as feature-rich as its bigger brother – the Galaxy S4 – but when we take its petite proportions into account, we'd gladly take the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini as it is. Drawbacks?
  • Pros: Impressively light and portable, Built-in IR blaster, Easily runs even the latest 3D games, Model with dual-SIM support coming too
  • Cons: Less than 4GB user-available storage, 720p screen would have been more fitting for such smartphone

Know Your Mobile
28 November 2014
  • Summary: A great all rounder and an excellent choice for those wanting a slice of the Samsung pie at a lower cost. Has some imperfections and there are cheaper Android alternatives around, but apart from that it's a fantastic little device.
  • Pros: Sleek and compact design, Nice display, Fast performance, Good camera, Great battery life
  • Cons: Small screen size makes it a bit pokey, Poor keyboard, Tacky feel

Samsung Galaxy S4 mini

  • Summary: T he Samsung Galaxy S4 mini is a smartphone with a fine format, of course, it is a bit smaller than the S4, but it has a bigger screen than the iPhone 5. In terms of format, I personally think that Samsung has managed to find the ‘perfect’ form factor. There are a number of small disadvantages, including the lack of notification lamp and the screen without HD resolution, although the latter is not visible for most users.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini review

expertreviews.co.uk
27 March 2014
  • Excerpt: We've got Samsung to thank for the miniaturisation craze. First it followed up the fantastic Galaxy S3 with the smaller, cut-down S3 Mini, and now, for those who have neither wide nor deep enough pockets for the Galaxy S4 , here comes the S4 Mini. It's since been replaced by the Galaxy S5 Mini , but you can still pick one up for around £190 SIM-free, £130 on Vodafone's Pay As You Go or £15-per-month on contract from Carphone Warehouse.
