My Samsung s4 mini just stopped working after about 2 years.
Battery replaced and software checked including mother boards still cannot switch on not even directly when plugged in to the charger. What could be the issue??????
jack, 23 May 2016please some one give the true detail of this s4 mini plus battery life. It is in an offer in ... moreabout battery life:
bought this phone (new) in january 2016, previous one was nokia e52.
i am not touch devices fan, average smart phones are too big in my eyes,
my priority was phone size and weight. i am not using a phone as laptop replacement for internet surfing, emailing and so on. just for calls, sms, sometimes to make a photo, sometimes to use wifi for internet connection for to search something urgent.
no permanent internet, no permanent wifi, no permanent bluetooth.
in these conditions my battery lasts 4 to 6 days depends on traffic.
most battery eater is display, therefore as much display in use and as much backlight, then shorter battery life. for example, hour and half internet surfing on wifi, average backlight will eat aprox. 20-23% from battery.
My s4 mini model is I9195, bought more than 2 years ago. I've been experiencing the same problems: Intermittent connection to my mobile network, no SIM detected (I've just changed to a new SIM card to try to solve the no-connection problem), and battery draining really quickly.
There must be a problem that's beyond the control of phone users as it seems there are quite a few of us experiencing this and we're in different parts of the world. Maybe a software update that messed up the android version in this model (kitkat?). How can we do something about this? How do we tell Samsung?

please some one give the true detail of this s4 mini plus battery life. It is in an offer in my country valid til next month 15th. so please guide me. i want to know only about battery life (screen on time with one charge, and days of use with one charge). i thought this is the only model with 125cm height and decent battery life.

Marius, 21 May 2016Does this phone have problems with battery draining too fast (main board factory problem)?Yes, I have the same model and the same problem!
I don't think it's a main board problem, I think it could be a software problem: I own this phone for two years, but this problem starts 2 or 3 months ago.
In the meantime I change the battery and the charger, but nothing...
I think that some recent apps or system updates cause this issue, but I can't identify which ones.
Does this phone have problems with battery draining too fast (main board factory problem)?
My S4 has "no service" message even if the simcard is inserted or not.
Sometimes it can come into the network just for some minutes and then go down again.
Your advices will be apreciated.
My phone will only text - when I try to make a call it pops up mobile network not available
