i have s4 mini and i can say its cool. already i think samsung knows this work well. most of samsung phones are cool. only problem for me its design and material quality.
The only thing wrong with the S4 mini is the price.
The phone is perfect, ok specs and great form factor. I have one. But it is too expensive, price is hi end but phone is only midrange. I bought mine second hand, I'd never pay what they ask for a new one.
I am really compelled to get a Mini S3 / S4.
It is the right size phone for me.. but I cant justify the price.
Anyone know any good 4" to 4.3 MAX size phones? dual core/quad core? 1gb min ram?
In my opinion Samsung attempted to take too much advantage of the S4 "moniker" by delivering a S4 mini which isn't (by any bounds) close in specs to the real S4.
Given that it's pricing isn't that much apart from the full S4, I believe that makes the S4 mini a hard sell. The only thing going for it is how much it looks like the full S4, which is kind of a dubious advantage given how looks were never really an advantage of the S4.
In my country (and i guess in others too) S 4 mini appeared much later than the S 4 when the big one already started going down price. So when S 4 mini appeared it was very close at price to the big S 4, which was a deal breaker for anyone.
the problem is the name `mini`. i sell mobile phones and people assume that they are a lot smaller than they really are. they should call it the s4 and the normal s4 the s4 max or something similiar.

I am owning S4 Mini Duos and I don't find any issues with the phone. Yes, battery is poor but I mainly use this as my second phone. I might only consider iPhone as primary if they offer big screens with upgraded RAM.....
Bad marketing by Samsung! In India, they launch only flagship and these type of stupid phones (high price for average specs).
Last best phone by Samsung, Galaxy S3!
The price given is too expensive, it made some people can't afford to buy high end Android but affordable price.

Anonymous, 15 Oct 2013am not a fanboy , the topic is about the s4 mini sales not going well , who cares , samsung s4... morewhy would Samsung let apple know it can make 4-inch phones? Samsung is doing business. Profit is the key. People don't do business to know competitor know they are capable of doing a 4-inch phone. Is it worth it?
Also, I don't think Apple care if samsung can make a 4-inch phone!

I bought an S3 Mini and it works great. Why upgrade so quickly when my current phone is perfect?
With that price tag, it will never sell well. In Australia, they are selling it for AUD600 which is completely overpriced for midrange phone. You can get Galaxy Note 2 or Galaxy S3 with that price. Or pay half for LG F5 or Google Nexus 4.
Well checking the price that's the mistake Samsung made it should have being cheaper than the S3 after all why would you buy the S4 mini when you can buy the flagship S3 for the same price wrong move Samsung
