A good phone but has few cons
22 October 2013
Excerpt: I upgraded from galaxy y.compared to my previous phone it is leagues above it. But if compared to other compact smartphones in the market it doesn't look good. My sister has iPhone 5 she used my phone and said my phone is sluggish. It is a good or rather great phone for those who play Not realy demanding games and listen to music a lot and use it for easy texting and great calling Experience. It is not a phone for those who are hard gamers or love surfing a lot.
I like it but Samsung has to do something with his software.

Summary: Standard Samsung shell is horrible. Battery icon - what is it for? It's just green all the time and then suddenly you phone turns off w/o even a warning (I had to install custom app to give low battery warnings!) Lock screen with pattern only recognizes pattern once out of 2/3 tries (my fingers work fine on other devices) - just drives crazy! Lots of things like this but unfortunately CyanogenMod for i9192 (because of duo sim I gess) is still unavailable.
Summary: Ok...so I got this S4MINI phone because I didn't particularly like how huge the S4 was. With the misguided hope that, apart from a tolerable downgrade in the hardware specifications and a minor reduction in the plethora of software features, it'd be pretty much the same user experience. It wasn't....well at least not quite.
Summary: I ordered it this Monday and the price has dropped by nearly 11 dollars so far, even before it is actually delivered! I believe it is a good phone, but such a ridiculous speed of price-dropping just makes me uncomfortable,like being made fool of.
Summary: Until now, i have just 2 days using it, and have no complaints. The only one was that i couldn't get it on time and i had to pay another $63 to send it to my country. It took a week to get from CA to NY, which I considered was a lot of time, I had a family member in NY that had to bring it to my country, and because of that delay, my cousin left and i had to pay extra fee to send it by other carrier to my country.
Summary: I bought this phone and works very well. Everything arrived as the seller indicated. I gave 4 stars because this phone doesn't have the light that indicates that you have a new message and it doesn't have the smart pause like his bigger brother.
Summary: When I just got it, the battery life sucked. As in, I charged it fully right before going to bed and when I woke up the phone was completely dead. Turns out that it just has to be fully cycled (I.e. fully charged and discharged) about 3 times before it fully starts to retain charge normally. Even under normal circumstances, the charge only lasts like 3 days max and I dont use it too heavily.
Summary: delivered on time as it was intended to. The only BIG problem is that it came up with FRENCH version. I had to buy an adapter for the charger and instructions manual was all in french, not a single Word in english.
