Always remember the Sammy only has two flagship products which are Galaxy S1,2,3,4,5......and NOTE 1,2,3,4,5,.....
Whatever sub models derived from them are inferior in term of technical spec and build quality.
If Sammy fails in these flagship products, the whole company collapses.
ALonZo, 23 Mar 2013Anyone bothering comparing the specs of a mini to the iphone 5 are seriously deluded. I mean t... moreYou Probably don't know the price of phones in the market, google will be useful. Samsung has the best price offer when it come to mobile phones bcos they have very low cost of production with great utility;
Abdo, 23 Mar 2013you are absolutely right, Samsung from the technical point of view, is the WORST phonemaker . ... moreI complete disagree with U. The phones keep coming up every 2-3 months, tell me why should i pay USD800 when i know a new phone with new features will pop-up in the next 2-3 months and i will be thinking of changing the phone after a of maximum 1yr. The plastic phones are cheaper and can do the same thing the aluminium phones does. then the premium phones are more expensive. Utility is what drives the mobile market not premium.
worst phonemaker that makes most of the parts in a phone.
Can't say that about any other manufacturer out there. They are all reliant on third party supplier to do the work and even Samsung makes the memory for all the phone repackagers.
but samsung sucks, right. You know how ignorant you sound when you say an asinine thing like that?
The specs for the S4 mini are almost the same as the phone I have at the moment, HTC Sensation XE. Why are Samsung releasing a phone with specs the same as one that are 18 months old?
Abdo, 23 Mar 2013you are absolutely right, Samsung from the technical point of view, is the WORST phonemaker . ... morethe worst. sorry but the never had to hold my phone a certain way like iphone users were told to or have overheating problems like the one x or s and their designs look terrific if im honest so you tell me what should be the priority for phone makers. I didnt mention sony as ive not had any 1st/2nd hand experience with any of their smartphones but they look fine and ive not heard of any issues thus far
Plastic is fantastic, don't talk trash about plastic, look how many useful things in this world are made out of it. It's light yet pretty strong and durable especially the polycarbonate that the Galaxy cover is made of.
I just made a search about prices on both plastic and aluminum and look what I've found:
Aluminum price is around 2 $ / KG
Plastic price is around 3.5 $ / KG
So look who's talking about cheap plastic the less cheaper aluminum. ROTFL :))))))))))))))))))

ALonZo, 23 Mar 2013Anyone bothering comparing the specs of a mini to the iphone 5 are seriously deluded. I mean t... moreIt's not a phone with the same specs of the Galaxy S2. It has a better processor at 1.6GHz dual-core that we don't know yet with certainty that it is a Cortex A9 or possibly a Snapdragon S4 Plus or Pro dual-core. Possibly it has LTE and other features like 1.5GB of ram, better camera, 64GB micro sd support, etc. It's good enough for to be released globally.
Anyone bothering comparing the specs of a mini to the iphone 5 are seriously deluded. I mean the speed of a mini will probably match that of a 3 year old iphone 4. Samsung will slap on a nice plastic body and give it Jelly Bean, show about a 100 adverts saying "wow it's a Galaxy 4S mini" despite it having the specs of a Galaxy S2. Android fans will say "but it's got a bigger screen than an iphone" and convince themselves and fellow fandroids that this phone is amazing. They will be willing to pay the ridiculously silly high price tag Samsung slap on because its a "Galaxy S4 mini".
The sheer arrogance of Samsung is shocking. They will con people into paying double for a product that is worth the same as a mid range phone. And people without knowledge if specs will be duped.
Samsung = shocking con artists.
Samsung = Apple
iphone = Galaxy (No new design... Same same and same design)
If google release the key lime pie as soon as samsung release the s4 that has 4.2.2 what will happen if samsung will stick to jellybean and tell the world that jelly bean is much better than key lime pie. Then they will release the Tizen. Google must be worried bcoz samsung is their biggest asset. Hope one day Tizen will beat Wp. Nice.
LG addict. wassup, 23 Mar 2013The irony about all this is that when u have brought a new regardless the brand, we all end up... moreNot a fact. i have never covered any of my phones, and i had handheld cellphones since 1993.
The irony about all this is that when u have brought a new regardless the brand, we all end up protecting it with a plastic cover you brought over the counter!!! #fact#!!!
Release a phone with two year old specs.
Slap the name of your current flagship on it.
Same design as every other phone they've released the past year.
And MOST importantly, use their HUGE marketing budget to convince the sheep to buy it.
BRILLIANT! The fanboys still don't realize its the new Galaxy Ace and will pay more for it. Lolz.
This plastic after one year using without cover looks much better than your non plastic phones. And if i have some scratches i can change it for reasonable price.
Or it's better to buy "cool" iPhone or something like that and wrap it in the plastic cover and shout that S4 has plastic back? lol
