This is what I've gathered when researching the two (to make a purchase).

S4 mini advantages (vs SP):
- Better front camera (2MP vs VGA)
- More RAM (1.5GB vs 1GB)
- It's far more compact and lighter (thus a mini)
- CM11 works quite well on the phone

Xperia SP advantages (vs S4 mini)
- Looks great
- Larger display with more resolution
- Far better GPU
- Larger battery

S4 mini unique disadvantages:
- New phones come with Knox bootloader, which means (upon installing a 3rd-party ROM) an instant "warranty void" and irremovable message each time the phone boots.
- Many have noted how small the battery is for the stock ROM.

Xperia SP unique disadvantages:
- Back cover is poorly achieved, it does not sit flush with the body of the phone.
- The phone is quite big, not a mini by any boundaries.
- CM11 has been plagued with issues from the get-go. Top that with the fact this phone doesn't have that many developers to begin with and things don't look too bright for the future of 3rd-party ROMs.

I have constant problems with this phone ever since I've picked it up. The persons I talk to complain that they can't hear me from time to time, tapping the phone with a finger nail seems to fix it, or pressing the volume rocker.

For better battery backup use the following steps (100% working) :-

1) first and foremost delete your Samsung account. For thisgo to :-
Settings:- accounts:- Samsung account:- tap on your account:- remove account
# Samsung apps are usless and keep running in background resulting in battery drain and ram consumption#

2) do not install any antivirous.
#Antivirous always runs in background and drains battery and s4 mini have its inbuilt Samsung Knox antivirous so don't worry its the best antivirous and firewall#

3) turn off all the Samsung and Google pre installed apps that can not be uninstalled except those you are using. For this go to:-
Settings:- more:- application manager:- all:- tap on apps name which you want to turn:-turn off
# it will help you to release a lot of ram and smooth functioning of device and resulting in lag free gaming with good battery backup#

4) do not install any task killer, cleaner, battery booster etc.
# because they keep running in background and eat a lot ofram about 20 to 30 MB #
For task killing :-Press and hold home key:- kill all the task (bottom right most icon)For ram clear :-Press and hold home button:- task manager (bottom left most) :- ram:- clear ram
# it will kill all the running task but before this you must kill all the task by above method #

5) uninstall all the unnecessary apps and games.

6) uninstall those apps which brings full screen adds.
# because they keep running in background #

7) if you are frequent traveller and having dual sim version then turn one sim off when traveling longer if possible.

8) never put network section in GSM/WCDMA put it either inGSM or WCDMA.

9) disable your net or wi-fi connection when not in use.

10) before going to bed or keeping phone on standby kill allthe running task and clear the ram.

11) keep monitoring which apps are running in backgroundand eating ram. For this go to :-
Settings :- more:- application manager:- running

Thank you
that's what I know.

I heard most people who flashed custom roms seems solved that problem but it might dangerous..if your phone still have "Knox" you Must delete it somehow(im never tried root you should find how to do it on web)
Hope this helped you

Check your battery usage.
Close apps and perform "Clear memory" from time to time.
Turn off NFC, S-Beam.

Good luck.

Drastic measures:
Disable those samsung apps that you don't use.
Turn off location.
Disable auto sync of your Google account.
Disable motions and gestures.

Good luck.
