Please everyone ,let's discuss the matter in realistic way...Samsung galaxy s4 mini isn't a bad phone.I don't say it's perfect ,but not as bad as many people say .Its CPU is good and quiete strong .Its Ram is very good and s4 mini is really good phone with games.the display is actually good especially when set the phone on professional photo display mode.I admit that the camera isn't very good ...It's not bad at all but not perfect. Now I have two problems with this smartphone,first,the battery life is running out very quickly .second,the phone is heating fast .But these two problems happened after I had rooted my phone and set a custom ROM for it so I guess that it's the reason for these two problems because before the root the phone was fantastic for and it wasn't heating and its battery life was good Finally,please for everyone, read my opinion and your neutral reply is very valued for me

Crappiest phone I ever used. It looks good on paper, considering the price, but in fact it is:
- low build quality = squeaky plastic, you need a serious case/cover to defend it
- lots of useless built-in programms running and as a result:
- very poor battery life
- random lags (despite of decent CPU and RAM)
- random restarts
- hard to root
- akward position of volume rocker (every second time when I try press the power with my thumb I accidentaally press the volume with my index finger on the other side)
- It bricked my brand new Kingston microSD card after 3 weeks.
Finally when it fell down from sofa after ~5 months of usage, the screen was damaged and I ahd to find my old HTC Desire X (which I bought in 2013 and used for 2 years) and was pleased to have a qulaity built phone in my hands, which can handle some falls without any case or film, has a better battery life, and runs smoothly.

You must learn how to set your phone to your preferences. Like where you want your apps to be stored,set time limit for idleness and lots more. My battery last long for me.

I've had this phone for about 6 months now and In my opinion this phone is great with all the features it runs smoothly sometimes it lags.After using it for 6 months it has become so slow and laggy the worst thing about the phone is the battery it runs out very quickly even though i don't use it much throughout the day it lasts for half a day then i have to charge it again.One more thing which i hate about the phone is that i have a 8GB SD card on it which is empty and every time i try to install an app it says i haven't got any more storage so you can only use the storage in the device which is 8GB to download apps which is ridiculous. overall i think i would never recommend this phone to anyone as its the worst phone I've ever had.

Great phone. I've had some problems but not enough to complain too much. A couple friends have had issues with it. Maybe all phones types are like that. Some are lemons, some are great with each brand/type/modle

The greatest + about this phone is it's versatility, largely contributed by the underrated IR.

A great midrange mobile phone.
It gives a great flexible experience.
