I've been looking at getting a new phone, and had the Samsung Galaxy s4 mini i9192 in mind, but recently found the Acer Liquid E2 and was wondering if anyone had any experience with both.
Obviously the Samsung is more expensive,but has a better camera (or at least picture quality), has 4G, more ram, and more internal storage.
On the other hand there have been a lot of reports of network problems with the S4 mini.
The Acer has a quadcore processor, a more minimal version of android, and is cheaper.
The Acer doesn't seem bad, however the small internal storage does worry me. I've always had low end android phones, and they always seem suffer from memory issues. I always end up with insufficient storage messages and no matter where I move or remove apps I can't get rid of it. Also it would be nice to have a good quality camera on the phone so I don't have to carry a separate camera all the time.

The update (58 MB approx) has solved the issue of Network recovery. My S4 Mini duos is now auto connecting to network without delay. Though late, but Good Job Samsung.

I am searching a mobile which can record & play full HD video with more battery backup
I am in India. Here S4 mini is dual sim
but I have to forget about good camera, better sound, TV-OUT, USB On the Go & HD screen resolution
but if I opt ZR, I have to forget Dual sim & AMOLED screen
I am in utter confusion
AnonD-52948, 17 Oct 2013Good day All
I am upgrading in 2 weeks time an have no idea which phone to get, so I thoug... moreHa Ha !!!!
How can you compare a different ( in all aspects) models?
S4 is the best handset
It is "moblet" ; whatever you can call
between mobile & tablet
having bigger display
& with almost all available features on a mobile
S4 mini is small & cute :)
who wanted a portable feature phone; it is for them
Its a great phone but the battery life isnt so good I have to charge this phone everyday and its a new phone too.
If only samasung improved the battery life this phone would have been aces away from apple
released. available on flipkart also @ 21 K/-
AnonD-197092, 18 Oct 2013It is support mhl and usb host after the latest update?No Usb host.
Can the USB OTG feature be brought by firmware update? I think not. Yes, it is a much needed feature for this price. Bit I think now you have to give up that or look for another model if it is so important for you.

Whats the firmware code..? Is it released in India..?GOOD NEWS to all who are looking to buy this phone.. The network issue of the duos GT-I9192 is resolved by the latest firmware update by Samsung. I tested it for the last 30 hrs, no restart needed. The phone recovered signal by itself. No network hanging now. Network reception is improved now. Much appreciate the action of Samsung.
