Samsung Galaxy S4 mini
The Samsung Galaxy S4 mini has a 4.3 inch 540 x 960 Super AMOLED display with a pixel density of 256 pixels per inch. The end result being that it’s smaller and lower resolution than its big brother, but still pretty decent.
It has a 1.7 GHz dual core processor and 1.5GB of RAM, which is quite a lot of power for a mid range handset and certainly enough that you shouldn’t experience any slowdown in general use.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 mini has just 8GB of built in storage but it also includes a micro SD card slot with support for cards of up to 64GB, so there’s no need to be limited by that.
It runs Android 4.2.2 (the same as the Samsung Galaxy S4) and is overlaid with Samsung’s TouchWiz interface. Its 8 megapixel camera is a step down from the 13 megapixel snapper on the Samsung Galaxy S4 but it’s still quite good. It also has a 1.9 megapixel front facing camera and can shoot 1080p video at 30fps.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 mini has a 1900 mAh battery which gives it solid but not great battery life of up to 300 hours in standby or 12 hours of talk time. It’s packed full of connectivity options with support for Ultrafast 3G, 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC.
