Thanks for the replies. But to advertise a phone as a mini and sell at a high price means the phone needs to be high end. Samcon will be selling a phone with old specs, whichever way you look at it, with the body of a new release shrunk down. I'd expect a 10MP camera with the hardware specs of an S3 plus a little more. Look what Samcon did with the S3 mini. Sold Galaxy S plus in a S3 style body at a high price!

Samcon continuously rip people off when they have little tech knowledge. If this phone is sold at less than £300 then I'd say well done. Samcon will sell at around £450 when it first comes out.

Come on guys you know it's a con, at least admit it.

A major rip off! I mean 1GB RAM, 8MP camera, probably be a 2 year old processor, slap on the magical plastic S4 style body with the words Jelly Bean and Wala! The Samsung con begins again! Nothing like the main phone.

Scam Android Manufacturere Selling Useless Nonsense Garbage.

I agree, the price is too high. Unless it's really good.

Knowing Samsung, this will be a stripped down S4, with less support for a high price.

450$ for s4 mini? are they nuts? it's way, way too much for a mobile with those specs. it shouldn't be more than 360$ max.
