With such limited user available memory, the ability to install/transfer apps to the SD card would be a very nice option.
The absence (not listed on the specs) of a Gorilla glass is a letdown though.
Anonymous, 06 Jun 2013add a couple of bucks youll get the last years flagship s3 and wait for the jb update. sammys ... moreExcept that this phone also appeals to those people who want a smaller phone (not just a cheaper phone) and the since s3 and s4 are basically the same size neither of them would appeal to those people while the s4 mini would.
5gb internal thats enough for apps and games..rest is expandable
No sratch resistant glass a matter of dissapointment..
resolution perfect according to the screen diagnol (over 250ppi)
samsung known for its quality camera..
latest android,fast processor,1.5 gb ram, a perfect one within budget
still waiting for L9ii to be compared.
According to the specs.. It will be around INR 25000..
Better than s2 plus, comparable to xperia SP.

If they could make the HTC One this size, then yes, it would be awesome, but it's too big, might as well buy an HTC One instead.
add a couple of bucks youll get the last years flagship s3 and wait for the jb update. sammys a bit priced it too steep in ph it worth 20k and s3 worth 23k lolz.
surez.km, 05 Jun 2013Really better than s3 in terms of tech specs..!! Number of times better than s2!!...gud or not gud
Far much better than the HTC One Mini (no card slot, no removable battery, poor camera, poor LCD screen, €400, etc.)
look for htc one mini which very very much better than s4 mini.gud camera,gud screen,beats audio which is a real mini of htc flagship
Really better than s3 in terms of tech specs..!!
Number of times better than s2!!...
Finally a decent android phone with normal-size screen I'm going to buy. I'm tired of all these new big screen phones.
AnonD-152199, 04 Jun 2013Dear GSMarena,
please compare S4 mini with Xperia SP.
i want to buy new smartphone, so i nee... moreHi Civic,
Xperia SP has better resolution screen having hd lcd screen whereas s4 mini has an amoled qHD display (The 256 ppi is enough and you won't notice much difference between the two). Comparing the two, s4 mini has rich color production and deeper blacks which gives you a visual delight. However SP suffers with poor viewing angles. In terms of performance, the s4 mini will be ahead of SP Provided same processor and S4 having greater RAM and lower screen resolution, which also leads to better battery life. In terms of build quality, I personally feel that s4 has got better looks also it has been derived from samsung's flagship S4. So I would prefer s4 mini over SP. Still SP is worth considering if you can Compromise on some features, especially the front VGA camera on SP compared to 1.9 MP on s4 mini !! Hope it'll help :). Goodluck.
