This is looking like my future phone, after 2 years of solid use out of my Samsung Galaxy S2, it's time for a replacement that doesn't have a silly over sized screen.

All i want from a smartphone is a 4.3 inch screen, decent specs and a removable battery!

S4 is excellent and all but 5 inch screen is too big for my hands!

I'd be better if they makes solux (lcd) display, 720p, dual a15 exynos, or big little quad (2×2) fm radio, with working like Nintendo plastic pen, min of 32 gig, and 21mah batt.+, three physical button, 'coz most of the time those two capacitive on the bezel are annoying(accidental touch). I think this will sell like a hot hot hot cake! !! For normal consumer. Writing this with my gnote 2, not all big thing are better....I prove it, it depend to users. Is Samsung hearing us! ? 'don't so!

Display must be in HD resolution (1280x800) otherwise no success for this model!

And what about battery life?

s3 mini dissapointed mini and i think s4 mini will too

for me s4 mini must have a hd screen and probably the same cpu (but the dual core a15 should be fine)
qHD is to damn low in 2013
i guess i have no choice but go for the s4

On topic: why does not Samsung put a HD screen in this phone? Do they worry that much that people will buy it over the S4? The software perks of Samsung products are great but i don't like that they are still limiting the screen resolution to the middle end phones when under HD resolution for a screen lower that 4.5" is so old news. On top of that Samsung phones are not the cheapest either.

The dual core sounds good to me, not everybody wants super high end phones with a power hungry quad core CPU. Plus a dual core CPU offers a very good experience. Don't need a quad core CPU to log into social sites and use their apps, web browsing and play games without a problem. For those who need more cores, go for higher. :)

it very good solution for people who don't need big screen but want's good performance ( iPhone competitor). I hope that samsung relase 4.3" phone with good perfomance : 4-core, Hd screen, usb otg etc. There's no phone like that on the market. If you want't good perfomance you have to buy big top phone or iPhne :(
I will bought this phone if will have good "parts" - not like S3 mini :(

Apple fans are the only ones willing to have small screens just to own "the" brand.

This is the best samsung can do at 4.3'' form factor?? low spec/ low quality screen/ plastic? LOL .. iPhone 5 can do all that in just 4 inch!! Now go hug your massive 5 inch phones while you can, in the future to be 8 inch.

That's thy when a company say they have an "ocata-core" processor it's hard for them to look beyond the marketing garbage and actually think for themselves. Don't mean to bash any companies, but it seems as though the Android fanboys are the ones most guilty of this ignorance.

Given that the S4 is 5", i would say that 4.3" is a mini version of the S4. Sure its not mini compared to a 3.5" iphone but 2013 is the year of 5" phones and 6" "Phablets".
