Samsung Galaxy S4 mini was a phone that came out a couple of years ago. I really remember how much I liked it. Because it was a great improvement compared to Galaxy S3 mini. This updated mini phone came with a slimmer design. And also a bit taller and larger display.
Main specs: 4.3 inch Super AMOLED display, Gorilla Glass 2 screen protection, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, Snapdragon 400 Chipset, Dual-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz Krait 300, Adreno 305 GPU, microSD card support up to 64GB, 8GB Internal storage and 1.5GB of RAM support!
In terms of cameras on Galaxy S4 mini we see here a major improvement compared to Galaxy S3 Mini especially with the front facing camera which here was 1.9MP. The main sensor is 8MP with aperture of F2.0 and LED flash! You now get 1080p with 30 frames per second record. S3 mini only had 720p support.
In the battery area we also see great improvement with 1900mAh battery! And this phone actually looked like a mini variant of the Galaxy S4! The standby time was up to 300 hours on 3G, up to 12 hours of talk time and up to 49 hours of music play. It even came with an infrared port. Which Samsung used more in their phones back in the days.
The USB connector as on all Android phones back then is using microUSB 2.0 connector. The screen resolution is 540×960 pixels which I think is a bit higher than S3 mini had.
Also Galaxy S4 mini has a very low weight just 40 grams more than mini card phones so it comes in at 107 grams. 8.9mm thickness not the slimmest but not the fattest either. Was great how they kept it under 1cm. And faster 4G LTE for amazing data speeds perfect for web surfing. Probably the best upgrade from S3 mini.
I did a Galaxy S4 mini unboxing a few years ago. I am a bit sad that we never got a Galaxy S6 mini, S7 mini and S8 mini phones! These phones was so cute and unique!
