ImX, 18 Jul 2013So high price for a Mini Device with lack of many features!!!
No HD Display
No 16GB intern... moreI do agree with all your points. I owen two Galaxy S4. But I do owen S4 mini i9195 too. The main reason I like the Mini it does everything I need for me to do as a daily use and much smaller in hand and so light to put in pocket. Still much better phone than that S2, S3, S3 Mini to carry. So, I say they both great phone depends on what you want to use the phone for.
Also to say all advantages you mentioned which are great but I do not use them on daily bases on my S4. Keep in mind that S4 Mini price is much cheaper.
With 4.3" screen it has the same size as my GS2...which was considered huge when launched. And this one is called Mini! Anyway that size is perfect for me. But i don't see any real change with my great GS2, except a big letdown: less memory...

Htc Desire 600 and S4 mini is not VFM in India.
X SP is best and cheaper.

1. the pocket friendly size and wight.
2. 4.3" super amoled screen.
3. better loud speaker performance.
4. better camera.
5. bigger ram.
6. Infra red port.
7. better battery performance(removable).
8. capacitive touch buttons.
9. native 3g video calling.
10.and better software support.
gsmarena should compare it with xperia sp in benchmarks and xperia sp has beaten it with a great margin and has more attractive design as compare to mini and available for cheaper :)
it's very nice phone...easy to carry and use..really like it....
It doesn't have Gorilla Glass.
Mine's screen got scratched by a credit card, a week after purchase...
GSMArena please do give your review of AUDIO characteristics of this S4 MINI . Ringtone , SPEAKER VOLUME etc. in DB.
Rather I would request you to pl., at least do give it for every Phone whose specification you mention & even if you do not give its Full Review.
Ultimately it is the Audio, in a phone ,which is more important fundamental property
Anonymous, 17 Jul 2013its just reached my country, i was expecting it will be nearly half the price or atleat 75% of... morethe best selling point of the s4 mini is the size and wight,which u can't find in xperia z or desire 600
also the s4 mini has better camera than xperia z although it uses only 8 MP :
the battery performance of the mini is better with amazingly 13:12h video playback while xperia z only lasts for 5:39h of video playback.
i don't think that nokia 185 g is better deal ,may be u mean heavier deal ;)
i can't describe people who buy the S4 mini as stupid people because the mini has nice features collected in small body that hard to find in other phones.
its just reached my country, i was expecting it will be nearly half the price or atleat 75% of S4 at launch will go down later
but to surprice yesterday in the same store S4 is 533 dollars vs S4 mini at 453 dollars, so the idea of downside, its price speaks for it, one thing to mention the store ahad earlier price of S3 as 420 dollars but just increased it to 453 dollars may be they want to sell s4mini, but no stupid is going to buy samsung then, an android lover will shift to xperia z at 500 dollars at same store price or htc desire 600 for price of 400 dollars, samsung has now so many devices that it soon is going to destroy its name, bcz all are same design, and now people want to go aither to sony or htc, or if some one is satidfied with a big change few are going to nokia lumia 920 at 453 dollars, very better deal
