Review Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini GT-I9195 Smartphone


Little giant. Not long ago, it would have been unthinkable to giv

Good performance; Main camera results; Manufacturing quality; Communication equipment; Infrared port; Very good display

Price; Slightly high temperature; Low resolution front camera

The smartphone is also equipped with a ton of features and transmits over almost every thinkable module. Its manufacturing quality and feel are very good, despite its plastic case.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini (Sprint)


The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini is a solid midrange Android smartphone, with a good set of features at an affordable price.

Comfortable size. Excellent call quality. Long battery life. Good value

Carrier branding and bloatware. Lower-res display

Flagship smartphones are getting bigger with every release cycle, but not everyone wants a big screen and associated pocket bulk. The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini is a suitable compromise, but a compromise nonetheless. This is a midrange phone through and...

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini (Verizon Wireless)


The Galaxy S4 Mini offers many of the benefits of its larger sibling in a lower-cost, pint-sized package.

Lots of features; Easy to use with one hand; Removable battery and microSD

Below-average battery life; Lower resolution and dimmer screen than competitors; Lackluster audio

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...

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini


Start with a Samsung Galaxy S4 , shrink it down, then replace its insides with midrange components. That, in a nutshell, is the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini. And for some cell phone customers, that's just about ideal.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini brings a strong feature set for a midrange phone, including Android 4.2, a dual-core processor, and an 8-megapixel camera. The Sprint version has excellent call quality.

The Galaxy S4 Mini has only 8GB of internal storage, and mediocre front-facing camera quality. Data was slow on Sprint's network.

Its reliable specs and availability on four carriers make the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini an easy-to-find midtier buy, but you should also compare the S4 Mini with its substantial competition.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Preview


Samsung's new Galaxy S4 Mini is a mid-range smartphone for those who don't want or need a full sized S4. An upgraded version of the SIII Mini, the S4 Mini has access to the same speedy 4G LTE cellular networks, but with a smaller 4.3-inch display, a...

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini review: small in size, but not worth the mega price


Despite how the saying goes, bigger isn't always better -- and that's especially true in the mobile industry, where companies have produced smartphones

Solid camera with great video recording ; Overall performance is decent for a mid-range phone ; Easy and comfortable to hold

Display could be better ; Priced too high for intended audience ; Limited internal storage

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini is a solid mid-range device, but you can buy similar phones for less -- or better ones for not much more.

Samsung Galaxy S4 mini preview: First look


If there was anything certain after the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S4, it was the imminent arrival of a mini version. The question wasn't whether or when - the Galaxy S4 mini is drafting even closer behind the flagship than its predecessor did last...

Samsung Galaxy S4 mini Review


The Samsung Galaxy S4 has been selling by the millions and is currently one of the hottest smartphones this side of the universe. It is pretty, powerful, and loaded with exclusive features that can be found only on Samsung devices. However, the...

Impressively light and portable ; Built-in IR blaster ; Easily runs even the latest 3D games ; Model with dual-SIM support coming too

Less than 4GB user-available storage ; 720p screen would have been more fitting for such smartphone

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....

Like the S3 and the S4, the Mini's camera is a great all-rounder, and during testing we found it produced good-looking shots in a wide variety of situations. In particular, we found the phone did especially well in macro shots, and excelled at keeping...
