Samsung is aiming to make a device for every occasion and every personality. I am waiting for the Samsung Mini SV complete with option bottle opener and binoculars to see where you are not going. I am absolutely chuffed (Aussie expression for a moment of elation)that Samsung will cover every mobility market segment and will introduce the SV mini that can play games all by itself. Yes, correct, you don't even have to get out of bed to enjoy the satisfaction of participating in a mind sapping irrelevant game. Me - I am the happy owner of an SIII in fact, which also makes decent phone calls, but I look forward to the date the Samsung S series will also make a good coffee. Bliss!
[deleted post]Cheap plastic..? But this plastic phone is the hottest item in the market. Not a illusion.
Samsung and their false and misleading models. What on earth does the SGS4 mini have to do with SGS4?
This phone will compete nicely with iPhone 5s. They all are consider mid-range phone.
Why do Apple fanboys always complain that Samsung phones are made out of plastic ? It's not that they would have buy them if they were made out of something else instead. Don't they get it that Samsung make their phones out of plastic just so that Apple fanboys to not buy them ? Apple fanboys are the kind of customers no other company wants to have since they always complain about useless things like plastic, rounded corners being too round or not round at all, retarded stuff anyways, while forgetting about the stuff that really matters and that makes a smarthphone to be a smarthphone like processing power bigger and better screen, faster LTE speeds, better camera and dozens other useful features that only Samsung and Android phones have.
I feel so sorry for some people. They went out thinking they were buying a smaller version of the S3, but were in fact being horribly conned by Samsung. Only people with knowledge base know a S3 mini is a mid range phone at most being sold initially at a premium price. Now Samsung intend to con again. They will bring out a little plastic phone with the same hardware specs as a S2 and market it heavily as an S4 mini, starting price £400.
If this was Apple people would be starting a hate campaign worldwide. But it's ok as it's good old Samsung. Right? No way! Samsung are daylight robbers who need to be exposed so they stop conning people.
Many people are buying the SGS3 mini in my country because they think it's actually an S3 just smaller and cheaper. They don't know they got fooled.
i don't know why people bother with a new image all you have to do it re-size first galaxy phone and you can easily predict whatever is going to come till the next year.
Hopefully this uses the same processor as the Xperia SP or something better and that they just sell all S4 minis with NFC. I've been disappointed with the S III Mini that came out in the Philippines. I was hoping it could play use S Beam with the S III and Note II but sadly, it's out of the question.
Samsung doing false advertisement again. This has nothing to do with SGS IV. It's just Ace 4.
Samsung strategy :
Flood the market with 100s of varieties of phone with a little + and -
Noooo at least make HD AMOLED screen, if another full HD device is out of question! Or use a PLS TFT, without Pentile and good viewing anles! Or IPS LCD!
AnonD-78115, 22 Mar 2013since sIII mini a huge hit, sIV mini will also b a huge hitThere were not many 4" Android phones that had much better hardware than the S3 Mini when it came out. When you step it up to 4.3", there are many 4.3" phones with Snapdragon S4 processors and some with even lower prices (assuming the S 4 mini is similar in price to the S 3 mini).
