They are jazzy and eye catching. Leave alone the size. Look at the build quality. Matt finish feels really premium. Forget Lumia and look at HTC phones. Awesome design and build quality. There's lot of room for improvement. I don't know what keeps Samsung away from a great design. It can really boost their sales. I bet if S4 had been released with a better design, sales would have been lot better than what it is now.

Seems like lots of people are happy with the design. Samsung wouldn't sell that much otherwise. And honestly, there isn't much you can do on the design front. Sure, you could paint it blue, make the corners a bit "cornier" and get rid of the physical home button but then you end up with a Lumia look-alike. :)
Where's the audio quality test? Does it use the Wolfson audio chip?
Get real!, 16 Jul 2013I just find it ridiculous if I see under "Cons" "Outplayed design". I sure... moreDesign is subjective.But one cannot deny the fact that the same design has been used over and over again even after receiving so much criticism.Maybe that's what's meant by outplayed design.
AnonD-143815, 17 Jul 2013Its not worth to buy s4 mini because you can buy note 2 on that pricebut the size of note II is not convenient for every body.
WTH, this phone is priced at more than USD500!!! U can get Xperia SP for USD300. Samsung must be out of their minds!!
For USD500, I can buy Note 2 or Xperia Z, which are WAYYYYYYYYY better than this mini crap.

I wonder when we can expect to see smaller denser full RGB AMOLEDs like this?
Both this and Note 2 have the same arrangement, and the max ppi so far is 267... getting there :)
No LED notification light, another lame duck mobile from Samsung that's been unnecessarily crippled.
Name S4 mini ?why ?Idk it looks like s4 that's why.
Samsung atleast do some justice with the name.Not even 720p screen comeon! What year is this 2010?

benchmarks are impresive, it even beat Note II and Galaxy S3 in most test. The battery is awesome also, it easily beat every current flagship out there and only get 54h rating ? I didn't see audio test section, it's been left out. I might get this phone when price drop to around $450 and use T-mobile $30/mos plan.
I just find it ridiculous if I see under "Cons" "Outplayed design". I sure can understand if the reviewer doesn't care for the design, however, this is highly subjective and, since it is an opinion, not a fact that should be listed at all. Personally, I prefer that "outplayed" design. The physical home button gives me tactile feedback as well as the advantage of finding it even in the dark since it is a real button.
