Good: Nice compact size
Comment: I always would go far the top spec of a particular phone, but the normal S4 is way too big. If I wanted something that big I would go buy a Samsung Note 3. The S4 mini is perfect for me, nice compact size with loads more power than my previous S1. : )
Comment: The moto g is better than this and its cheaper than this
Comment: i have just ordered this phone i would perfer S4 but like size of S4mini. hope im not too disapointed.
Comment: There is an alert i don't know how it came in, Is like beeping after few seconds, which wore out battery so quickly. This makes the battery hot ever. How can i remove that alert?
Good: Nothing at all
Bad: Call drops, phone gets hung up, Network problem
Comment: Till the time I purchased Samsung S4 mini, I was under the impression that Samsung prices its products reasonably and is superior in quality.
My woes started the moment I purchased it. All of a sudden, calls drop and I get the error as "No Network"! I have been using the same network and staying at the same place and all my family members use the same network (but not Samsung) they do not face problem while I face.
Phone hangs up all of a sudden and I get the error as .com.andriod.phone stopped functioning.
I approached the customer service desk and had to spend a half day and they showed a sorry face stating that there is a power failure! Company squeezes the customers handsomely with 3rd grade handsets but does not bother to have proper infrastructure.
Had the problem been with Iphone or Blackberry, customers experience would have been much much better.
Cant expect better care from a 3rd grade company which manufacturers 3rd grade products
Comment: John, since it runs Android 4.22, I dind´t find anyway to move apps to ExtSD except if you root your phone (doing so there are some apps to move or swap the internal and external memory) and, by the way, losing the waranty.
Comment: there is apps that you can use to move content from SD to your phone night
Good: almost everything accept pixel density but AMOLED makes up
Bad: no LED light,pixel density is weak but AMOLED makes up for it
Comment: The 1.7 GHZ dual core is a brilliant processor and with all benchamark tests it did almost as good as an S4 and there is no apps that can challenge this phone! and it has the brand new chipset from snapdragon that gives it great performance in which the S4 and S3 actually has outdated chipsets but they are BIG chipsets and thats why their performing well,this smaller phone is really the best that Samsung could have pushed a phone with this size
Good: Small and has dual SIM version
Comment: I ask CNET to please correct the review when he talks about moving apps to external SDCard because when I do it so, it just doesnt move to the external, i checked the files at the externalSD after the job and nothing that I asked to "move to SD" was there.
Good: Screen Size
Bad: 1.Not a 720p screen 2.No Notification Light 3.Expensive
Comment: Samsung Uses only the Brand Value of their High End Device " Galaxy S4" to Rob the People Cash.
Even for Such a High Prices tag phones too don't have Notification Light.Shame on you Samsung! If Nokia is on the Android Race, Samsung cannot Survive!
