Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini offers 4.3 inch qHd Super Amoled display and supports 540x960 pixels HD resolution with 256ppi pixel density. S4 Mini display is tipped up from 4inch to 4.3 when compared to its predecessor S3 mini with better resolution and as well as it has better pixel density.
S4 Mini is equipped with 1.7 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with Adreno 305 Gpu and 1.5 gb of ram which seems to really fast in comparison to its predecessor S3 Mini. However, it’s questionable, how this device is going to perform against S4 and even against Note 2 in daily usage if it has lower clock speed than both of them. This is a same cpu and gpu speed which we will see in Samsung Mega 6.3, but offcourse with 6.3 inch display.
S4 mini comes with 8 GB of internal storage (5 GB useable), but you have a microSD card slot for expansion up to 64 Gb, situated right on top of the micro SIM compartment, next to the generous.
S4 Mini packs the usual options such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and A-GPS, Wifi Hotspot, NFC, Infrared and as well as it has 4g LTE for fast internet speed from service provider.
S4 Mini offers 8 Megapixel camera with 1080p videos recording and offers 1.9 mega pixels camera on the front for video calling. Camera itself is not as good as we have seen on Htc One, Note 2 and S4, but its take considerable photos from it, but have more pixels from its predecessor S3 Mini Camera.
S4 equipped wih 1900 mAh battery which seems to me good in comparison to S3 mini 1500 mAh battery, but not as good as its bigger variant S4.
Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini has similar design that we have on S4, but with smaller measurements. S4 Mini measures 124.6 x 61.3 x 8.9 mm and weighs 107 grams in comparison to S3 Mini measurements of 121.6 x 63 x 9.9 mm. These measurements tell us the story that S4 Mini is taller than predecessor, but its nice to see that despite the fact it has 4.3 inch display its less wider and thinner than S3 Mini.
S4 Mini runs on Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean), the Mega comes with some of the software features loaded on the S4 and Note 2. Lock screen is customizable and the quick settings found on the drop-down notification bar. It also comes with Samsung's Air View, Smart Screen, screen mirroring and S Beam functions.
To round up all the things we have discussed above S4 Mini is targeted to those people who want to enjoy S4 features in compact size as well as they are not willing to pay a huge amount to get big S4. S4 Mini is budget phone and easily controllable from one hand to enjoy day to day task without a hassle. However, S4 Mini comes up with some slow specs in comparison to its bit variant S4, but i think it has considerable amount of Cpu and Gpu to handle any top game in it speciallay when compared to S3 Mini. S4 Mini will be available in the beginning of July and cost about £350 to £400 depending on storage options.
